This property and the owners were wonderful, as other reviewers have stated. The check-in and out process was a breeze and Scott responded instantly when I had random questions during packing (for example: is the water filtered? No - so we packed our Brita pitcher instead of stocking up on bottled water).
I saw other reviewers were disappointed that parking is across the street, but this wasn’t an issue for us, at all. There is a spot in front of the building for loading/unloading. We were able to pull up and quickly move our stuff to the front porch, grab the key and parking pass, park (within eye-site of our luggage), and then move everything from the porch to the appropriate rooms.
The only minor inconveniences I had during our stay at the property: 1) the kitchen has just about everything...except wine glasses. There were two in the cabinet, so the additional adults used coffee mugs.
2) The washer and dryer are tiny (they fit about 2-3 towels and some beach clothes, per load). The washer and dryer also can not be run at the same time. Because of this, I spent almost every minute we were indoors trying to keep up with the laundry.
3) The contract advertises that if anything happens to the mattresses, the renter is responsible for replacing them. Because of this, I ran out and bought water-proof mattress covers to take along for all of the beds (better safe than sorry!). However, when we got there we saw that all of the mattresses are already covered in plastic, and have a mattress pad on top (which already showed some marks from previous renters). No big deal - I just wish I had known, prior to purchasing my extra precautions.
4) This is a first floor condo, so just keep in mind that the renters above will make a big difference in your quality of stay. At one point it sounded like someone was bouncing a basketball on the floor above us, well past a reasonable hour...in addition to the heavy foot traffic we could hear. This is the same concern for the back bedroom...it was great to separate individuals from the noise of our own condo, but we could hear everyone who used the back stairwell, with unfortunate clarity, at all hours of the night. I’d recommend a white noise machine or something similar, if you have light sleepers.
Otherwise, our stay was perfect and we especially appreciate that we were able to bring our furry family member along.
I definitely recommend this property for everyone, dog-lovers or not!
