The lower unit was freshly remodeled and decorated in a beach style. The beach access is right across the street, and the biggest surprise was that we could actually see the water from this lower level unit. This neighborhood is one of my favorite on the Cape, and the wide flat beaches are perfect for walking and playing.
We spent 11 days here while working in the area. I gave this property 2 stars because: -really fantastic location -spacious living area -great screened porch -very dog friendly with dog 'amenities' One of the issues, which would alone have caused me to rate this property poorly, is the linen issue - 1 bath towel, 1 wash cloth, 1 hand towel per person, period. 2 requests for an additional towel each were met with- wait for it- no response. We thought about going to buy them some towels but didn't. I don't usually have to wash my bath towel every day, but not any options here. A bigger issue is that there is major construction going on in the 'back' of the property, which is 10 feet from the house. From about 0730 am to 0730 pm- concrete saws, air compressors, nail guns, compactor, cranes, etc. all day long. In the middle of peak vacation season, you can ensure you won't sleep past 8 am. Who would schedule major construction on a vacation property in vacation season? Mind you, this doesn't just affect this property, there are neighbors. We have a vacation rental as well, and would never be so inconsiderate to our guests. The bedroom doesn't really have any ventilation because it used to be the garage, and it can get pretty warm at night. There is a toaster oven but not a real oven. The large eye on the stove didn't work and I didn't feel like fixing it. I doubt a call would have changed anything. I doubt we would come back here.
I'm so sorry about the towel issue. Per our rental agreement we supply one towel per person and this home sleeps 4 so we had 4 towels on property. We had you down as 2 guests so that should have been 2 towels per guest per our count, regardless if you had contacted us we would have delivered you more towels. Neither my rental manager or I received any requests for more towels. Deeply sorry for any lost communication. The owners are adding a pool and a guest suite over the garage, unfortunately there was construction during your stay, we have no control over construction and most of it is finally complete. This project has gone on for months and many weeks there was no construction. Again if you had contacted us we would have done our best to work something out with the contractor. In our rental agreement we do have a clause about construction due to the nature of construction in our area at any time at any home you could run across a week of construction but in most casses it is unlikely. In the future this property will come with a shared pool for all guest use.
Loved this unit! The porch was huge and everything was very clean and in excellent condition. The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet, and the beach was directly across the street. Our dogs enjoyed their stay as much as we did! Would love to stay here again.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review and so glad you had a wonderful trip.
