The house has a million dollar view from the deck. The owners were very friendly and responded in a timely manner. Location is convenient ; close to stores, restarants and the beach. Enjoy your stay!
Great area and location. Here for the race weekend and had everything you needed. The owner and son were very helpful. Would come back and stay again
This rental had plenty of space for my whole family. It was close to everything and the view was amazing. We had a lot of fun and would definitely rent this unit again.
My family and I enjoyed our week-long stay here for a Weir's beach/Winnipesauke vacation. We wined, dined, hiked, kayaked, boated, beached, swam, mini-golfed, Fun-spotted and had a wonderful trip... this rental served as a nice headquarters for all of it. The owner was easy to get in touch with and the property comes as pictured/described. It was a cozy fit for our 4 bedroom group but the location made up for it, as all activities were only a short walk or drive away. If you're an early riser, wake up for sunrise in the morning. You won't be disappointed by the view from the balcony!
Upon arrival, the house was as expected based on the description and photos on this website. However, we were completely dissatisfied with the numerous mechanical issues and more importantly, the lack of customer service the landlord provided.
After arriving, we knew something was wrong based on the large water stain in the 2nd floor bedroom and the musty smell within the house. It turns out that one of the bedrooms was completely inhabitable due to the floor being soaked in water. This resulted in water leaking through the floor and into the light fixture in the kitchen below. In addition to the water, the refrigerator was not working leaving us with $600 worth of food and alcohol going to waste. Being a homeowner, I understand that things break. However, the problem is that most of the issues were not addressed and that ones that were addressed, were poorly managed.
After talking to the landlord, it turns out, the bedroom carpet had been recently cleaned and her belief was it would dry in a few hours. After 5 days (and keeping the landlord updated on the progress), it only got worse. The leak was so bad, we were collecting buckets of water and were not able to use the light in the kitchen at all.
In regards to the refrigerator, the landlord offered to store our food in her sons unit directly below. However, this was inconvenient as we had to contact him when we needed something. A new one was delivered in 2 days. However, the landlord refused to take time off work for the delivery and gave my phone number to Lowe's without asking. We were forced to alter our plans to accommodate the delivery of her fridge (her other recommendation was to leave the place unlocked while we were gone). We decided to stay with our belongings during the delivery.
On the day we left, her son came by and offered us reimburesement for our inconvenience. We agreed to the terms. However, I received a call from the landloard 2 days later saying her son was not permited to negotiate on her behalf and offered us just below half of what we had agreed to with her son. Her reasons were irrationale despite me providing proof of how many people were inconvenienced and leaving physical receipts at the house for how much we spent on replaciing spoiled food.
Linda bribed us with $100 to not leave a review. We respectfully declined because we wanted to make sure people are aware of the issues and poor customer service. I would not recommend this rental to anyone.
stayed here with my husband and my 3 year old son and we couldn't have been happier. I came back here to look at returning and saw the negative review and decided to share our experience as I think the person who posted the negative review may have been confusing this place with another place. We came in July and had so much fun and I have to say we did in fact walk to everything. My son got to go fishing for the first time, we took a ride on the Mount Washington and enjoyed the short walk down to the lake where we swam played in the sand fed ducks and watched boats go by. The house itself had the most amazing view of the lake and we watched many sunsets and with a 3 year old (sun rises). The deck was big with a grill chairs and a table to eat outside which we did every night. The rooms were all good sized and it was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The best part was the owner was so accommodating and had even gone so far as to make sure there were some toys for our son. tons of great restaurants and the board walk was so much fun that we went almost every night as it was a quick 5 minute walk. Like i said we are already planning to go back again.
