Summer Vacation
This home has an excellent location given it's only a few houses from the Boardwalk and beaches. Renters should be prepared to provide their own toilet paper, garbage bags etc. although there are enough cooking pots/pans, plates and utensils. Beware the alley way on the west side of the home as my family found "tie-offs" which are cords or wire used by hyperdermic drug users along with empty alcohol containers. You may have to do some cleaning up in the back as well from previous renters as I had to due to the garbage that was placed loosely in bins and scattered somewhat around the back area. The comforters for the beds were not clean and me and my family had to hike them all to the laundrymat to wash them due to the smell and odor that they had on them. There was sand on the floors and on the beds and couches. While cleaning the couches we discovered 2 used q-tips. Essentially, the house was not cleaned adequately which the owner may have to look into. There was also a leaking toilet upon our arrival, which we discovered a couple of days after we were there, that is we found out exactly why the wet bathroom floor was constantly in need of mopping/wet. There was also a foul smell of urine coming from the rear main level bedroom. The owner was notified of our issues and no gestures of accomodation were offered other than for us to take pictures. It would have been nice to have the owner offer an extra $100, perhaps from the cleaning fees, refunded due to our inconvenience on our paid vacation. This is what I would have done if I was a home owner/renter to hard working and vacation-needing customers.
