    Good location but filthy home

    Overall we did enjoy our stay here, because of the beach and we needed a vacation. The location is great, few minutes to walk to the beach with 3 kids under 5. The house is listed as a 4 bedroom but it is not a true 4 bedroom as others have noted. One bedroom with bath on one side of the house. Other side has a second living room with two bedrooms off it. This living room has two beds in it, great for extra sleeping but you can’t leave those two bedrooms without walking past the extra beds. None of the bedrooms have proper blinds or curtains on them which is so strange to me. Every morning our kids were up with the sun because it’s SO bright everywhere. Not ideal for a relaxing holiday where you’d prefer your kids to sleep in. The kitchen has everything you’d need including every old pot and rusty pair of scissors the house has ever seen. Very hard to find anything. A simple clean out and organization would help the functionality of this kitchen immensely. This property would have received 4 or 5 stars but we had to give it one because it was absolutely filthy. I mean the true definition of filth. The property was surfaced cleaned. The en-suite bathroom has dust and hair all over it and looked like it had not been cleaned since the previous guests. The kitchen counters were cleaned but everything else was dirty eg: the fridge has spills everywhere inside. We had to go buy cleaning supplies because I couldn’t bare my kids or I touching anything. The really terrible part was the dust. This property looks like it hasn’t been properly cleaned in months. The thick dust was unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Book shelves, mirrors, lamps, cabinets with thick dust, the photos are disgusting. I’ve never rated a property 1 start before but this is unacceptable. I can’t in good conscience give any higher, especially during COVID. The property owner was very quick to respond and was very apologetic but in reading the other reviews he obviously hasn’t taken this to heart. I was told they had new cleaners and are hoping they will get better but you can not rent out a house like this. He offered for the cleaners to come back but she couldn’t for two days but by then I had cleaned myself. Also offered to pay for the supplies which is kind but beside the point. A proper cleaning would make the world of difference here.

    Better than I expected

    The house is a little older but was nice. The inside has been redone and was cleaned well. We didn't find the clean water hose are to wash of sand until the last day and had to dust our stuff outside. Very nice location for the price. You can see the ocean from on entire side of the deck and there is nice furniture to utilize there as well.

    Home Away from Home

    We took 15 family members to the beach for a week and had a great time. The house was so close to the beach and the view from the deck and was perfect. We felt like we were at home. Thanks Sandra for your assistance!

    Great beach house for family vacation and great location

    This house was close to the beach and reasonably close to town. We had a great week long family vacation with kids ages ranging from 13-23. The house was clean, had a great living room and an additional den type area where the kids hung out. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked alot. There is a great washer and dryer which we used. The walk to the beach was easy and the beach was great! We really enjoyed our stay here!

    No Wifi and Broken AC

    The house was very cute and accommodated 15 people quite nicely. However, the Wifi wasn't working and never got fixed during our three night stay. This also apparently affected the television in the back part of the house - so no television for the kids and no Wifi for the kids. Conversations with the property manager yielded no results even though Sandra was very nice and apologetic. Could have been storm related. Not a huge deal, but... The first night we noticed the metal bunk bed in the bunk room was wobbly so we took the mattress from the top bunk and put it on the floor. Plan B worked fine (but would suggest tightening up the fasteners before letting anyone actually sleep on the top bunk). The first night everyone was comfortable but the AC in the back of the house froze up. As a result, the second day AC techs turned off the AC and turned on the "fan." The second night ended up with temperatures hovering around 80 degrees in the back of the house where 10 people were staying. Several folks ended up feeling pretty bad, and a couple got sick. In the meantime folks in the front of the house were freezing in an attempt to cool the back of the house with air from the front of the house. Unfortunately, we could not locate spare blankets or linens anywhere (or very many extra towels for that matter) to cover up with. To compensate for the heat in the back we purchased a fan from Wally World to put in the bunk room. The next day the AC was turned back on and the third night was much more comfortable. Also, hate to be nit-picky, but the toaster only worked when you held down the lever (made for labor intensive bagels LOL!), and the recliners would not recline all the way back. Strange, but true. The location was great and redeemed the trip overall. Everyone was very happy with the beach being just a few feet from the house and enjoyed the trip mostly. As my daughter said, it was either "awesome" or "awful".

    Clean and spacious!!

    Very nice and clean cabin. Perfect distance from the water. There is no driving on this part of the beach so it is a safe, family atmosphere. This cabin has everything you need. We had a great time!!

    This beach house fit our family so well!

    Beach2fun was great! It was very clean, had a well-equipped kitchen, is just 2 minutes to the beach, had a large family-room area that was great for kids and for playing games and cards. Having 3 of the 4 bedrooms in the back, away from the main area was especially great for earlier bedtimes for our younger grandkids. The large porch catches a great beach breeze and was so pleasant.
