Our stay over New Year's
We are a family of four, with children ages 9 and 11. We researched the house extensively and saw such differing reviews. Hopefully, we can shed some light. Also, we have rented approximately 15 houses over time. Here are the pros: 1) The view is outstanding. The house is perched on a cliff over the water. The sunsets were spectacular. 2) The garden makes a lovely living area with a fire pit, comfortable seating & gorgeous succulents. The owners must be terrific gardeners. 3) The location is central ...convenient to great restaurants, high end grocery shopping and tennis courts. 4) The Xbox and massage chair were bit hits with my children. Here are the cons: 1). The house needs a top to bottom scrub down. The blankets in the closets had hair (pet?) and smelled pretty bad. 2) The kitchen is oversold in the write up. Once again, a good cleaning is needed. In the morning, it took pulling out a few coffee cups to find one that looked clean enough (coffee grounds in cups). It was dodgy with the silverware as well...sometimes forks and spoons had food remnants. It is all totally acceptable mess as long as it is your own home and not a rental. In short, we had a really nice vacation in the home. However, given the price, I am not sure that we would rent this home again.
