My two grown children and I stayed in this house for a short 5 days in November 2017. It is a wonderful house, comfortable for the three of us and nicely equipped with everything you could need. The outdoor space is incredible: the pool is refreshing, the vegetation is beautiful, the fountain is quaint, and there are options for both sun and shade around the pool for the entire day.
The title of my review refers to the fact that this is indeed a vacation rental. There is an occasional chip in the tile floor or nick in the wooden trim, but that makes it all the more endearing.
The location is great in that it is close to the beach and the strip of hotel, resorts, and restaurants. However, if I were to stay there again, I would rent a car. The walk to the Art District is around 30 minutess, which is very doable, unless the heat is oppressive.
The owner of this property is wonderful. She is very responsive and sweet and kind. As we were arriving later in the day, I asked if she would pick up some breakfast items for us for the following day. She was very accommodating, asked for a list of preferred items and provided those for us. This was in addition to the welcome basket of snacks and fridge of welcome beverages she provided.
I would definitely stay here again, for a longer duration. I would rent a car in the future.
