Overall Rating:4.5 4.5
Unfortunately, this is really all we have to say about the positive aspects. This house needs a fresh coat of paint and some landscaping. It’s old, peeling and overgrown with hedges. It’s embarrassing how bad it looks.
We were so excited about the enclosed porch off the 1st floor master....until we stepped out onto it and saw the old, warped, moldy, ripped cushions on the furniture. Maintenance changed the light bulb for us out there and even remarked about how old it was. We didn’t sit out there one time. The 3rd floor deck is awesome too! Too bad there is no furniture up there to enjoy the view.
The downstairs sleeps quite a few.....but there are no closets, dressers, night stands or luggage racks. Very bizarre and uncomfortable for a week of living.
One last thing....the side of the house is strewn with garbage. An old grill, old patio umbrellas, old broken chairs. Honestly....this home owner just keeps collecting his rental fee and doesn’t feel the need to take care of this property. It’s disappointing to spend so much on a vacation and not be able to fully enjoy it. This was our 3rd time at Beachwalk......and while it was the most convenient location, it was definitely the least nice home.
We did report some of these issues to the rental office and were told that they knew, the owner knew and they would email the owner. We never heard back.
A few thoughts/recommendations: 1-The house was clean but needs greater attention to some updates to the furnishings and spaces - in particular many of the mattresses seemed very old and very uncomfortable - newer mattresses and bedding would make a tremendous improvement to our groups stay. 2- Given the large size of the living room, would have like additional seating, a large rug and improved lighting in this room. 3- Would be very helpful to have one of the beds in the lower level sleep two and at least a full-size bed to better accommodate a family on this level. 4- Access to the rear outdoor space is very challenging and not accommodating from the main house or coachhouse - opening the walkway between the coachhouse and screened porch to the rear outdoor fire pit space would help make this space more useable. 5- The large wrap-around porch is super - would be even better if it was screened in as unfortunately the deck was covered nightly with spiders. An outdoor dining table towards the front of the porch would be a great addition too.
Your request has been sent. We look forward to meeting all your vacation needs!
