The property was not the cleanest when we got there. There was dirty medical tape laying in one of the bedrooms. There was coffee spills on the sink. The trash or recycling bin had not been emptied for prytwo weeks. There were ants all over the screened porch and sunroom. We were not even able to enjoy these spots of the property. Also this property should definitely NOT be listed as a beach view. There was no ocean or beach viewable from this home. Only other homes. Also the construction noise and the tree cutting service down the street working were unbearable at times. Good thing we didn’t speed much time at the house.
I sincerely apologize that you encountered some cleaning issues upon your arrival. We would have sent the cleaners back out to address any issues immediately! The trash gets taken out twice a week (Tuesday and Friday during summer) and recycle is only picked up every other week on Wednesdays. I apologize that there was trash buildup but unfortunately it just happens sometimes in the busy summer months, but the trash service does take it out...hoping that the previous renters don't wait until after Friday morning to take out all their trash but unfortunately it sometimes happens. Ants are very common in the yard. We can spray for them often but they always come back due to the sandy yard, but we're always happy to spray and it will keep them at bay for a few days or so. It is just bad during summer. I don't believe we advertise this as an ocean view property but I will double check. You are right, there are no ocean views, but I don't recall us advertising that anywhere. The construction will be completed soon (it's about one block away from this house!). It's all mostly inside work now. Sorry that this was a nuisance to you, but it's out of our control obviously. I regret that you did not seem to fully enjoy your vacation. Please give me a call if you'd like to return and I'll happily offer you a discounted rate next year.
Labor Day weekend stay
Really enjoyed our stay and the house we rented wasn’t anything fancy but it was within a reasonable price. It also nice and cozy. We were only 1 block from the beach which took us less than 10 minutes to walk to. We plan on coming back in the future.

Updates & Cleaning needed
Location was great! House needs a THOROUGH CLEANING! The beds were not comfortable and squeaked at each movement.
To all future renters - this house has had a FULL deep cleaning as of May 2019 as well as being freshly painted inside! We have also hired a NEW cleaning company who does a GREAT job! The owner of the house had it professionally deep cleaned and powerwashed, as well as spent a month of her own time at the property sprucing it up for summer rentals with new pillows, new A/C unit on the porch, newer porch furniture, etc. It is a CUTE house with an excellent location! You can't beat this location and house for the money! Call to book today and we will offer discounts for summer 2019!
Merely adequate for the price
Carroll realty was excellent to deal with. I will definitely use this agency in the future but probably not this property. The proximity to the beach is convenient. We enjoyed the experience of sitting out on the upper deck with a breeze and gorgeous view of the full moon. The screened in porch was enjoyable as well. The elderly next door neighbors are very pleasant . However, the property is lacking in several areas. The baseboards and floor edges had an obvious accumulation of all sorts of debris. The floor and carpet on the screened porch had not been cleaned in some time. The front storm door was bent did not close/ latch. Majority of screened porch furniture was old wicker chairs with broken wicker , one of which a loose rusty nail that was found by my husband when when he leaned back against it. Questionable electrical safety due to obvious overuse of extension cords and lack of GFI outlets in kitchen and bath areas.
Thank you for your review and we're glad you enjoyed your stay for the most part. I have forwarded your review on to our owner, and discussed with her about replacing some or all of the porch furniture. We agree it is very dated and needs replacing. The baseboards need to be painted - we looked at this and it wasn't dirt but rather scuff marks and such that make it look dirty. I will discuss hopefully getting some fresh paint in this off season to help with the appearance. The porch/sunroom is cleaned (vacuumed) after every renter so I apologize that it appeared dirty to you. We had just replaced all the furniture out there and think it looks so much better (pictures haven't been updated yet to show the new furniture). We try to price the home very reasonably compared to the other older style beach homes that we manage. For the location and size of the homes we think the price is fair and lower than most other comparable homes.
Great Location but they need to hire a new cleaning crew!
Great location.....a block from the beach access and a little over 1 mile to the grocery store. BUT, the House was filthy! We were smacked in the face with enough air freshener to sedate a small ryhno but once the fumes dissapated the living room rug smelled of dog urine. There was dog hair EVERYWHERE! I expected some in the corners or behind the couch but there was hair standing in the middle of the floors. All over the beds creaked and made it impossible to sleep. I would invest in new beds and a different cleaning crew!
