Review for CV-16Thursday, Sep 25 2014
So much room you don't ever have to worry about being on top of each other. Well equipped, short walk to the beach. Wish the pool was heated, because we had some cool weather leading up to our stay. Couldn't seem to keep the bugs out of the pool no matter how much we skimmed the water and it was super chlorinated. The hot tub was different from one pictured but still great. When we arrived, I walked through and noted quite a few things: broken pool sticks, broken blinds, hole in wall upstairs, missing lock in master suite off great room, missing Xbox controllers, ripped screens, dirty A/C vents, no propane for grill. When we went in to Corolla midweek, I stopped at realty office and mentioned these things to them. Within a day, they had someone out with new pool sticks, new lock for door and then a day later with new blinds. The view from the top deck is amazing! The horses were in the yard almost daily! One hot day, there were six of them huddled on the porch in the shade taking a nap! It was awesome! Being so far up the beach, there wasn't as much traffic as there would be if you were closer to the paved road. If you have children, you really have to watch them coming in and out of the water because of the vehicles. Most do not go 15 MPH! It's also great that we didn't have to worry about bringing bath towels and sheets. The carpets could use a good shampooing(my feet were black the first night we were there, after that I wore slippers). The cleaning crew could do a little better. I ended up wiping down all the cupboards and fridge upstairs the first day we were there and vacuumed up food from previous guests. But that to me is a reflection of the rental company, not the homeowner. The house overall is wonderful! Everything you need for a family vacation! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!
