This house is an incredibly spectacular property. It is much bigger than it appears in the photos, which I was initially worried about. I was also worried about the noise from the highway, of which there was very little, because the ocean is so close and loud. The kitchen and living room downstairs are wonderful and spacious, and the view of the ocean from there is marvelous. All the decks, small and big, are wonderful places to relax and socialize. The ocean being right at your feet is an amazing experience.
The bedrooms overall are nice. The bedroom windows giving out on the ocean are significantly dirty, probably salt and dust, which is understandable, however it really took away from the pleasure of a room with a view. The beds are a personal preference of course, however the king in the master bedroom was not comfortable to sleep in. I didn't sleep a single decent night in the exceedingly soft bed. Also, as a warning, the ocean is very loud at night. It's wonderful but it can also be hard to sleep!
Experience with owner:
This is where things got a little tougher. It almost put down my ratting another star (but the house was so lovely I couldn't do it). Haley is a nice lady, and I cannot blame her for being a little paranoid about her wonderful place, however it really put a dent in the experience for us. Even before arriving there was a clear obsession about keeping the floors completely clear of sand, as to not scratch it, which is already pretty odd in a beach house. But when we arrived, the floors were already completely scratched... The no sand rule was reminded to us very very often, and if you have kids with you, this ends up being a pretty stressful experience as it is legitimately very difficult to keep those floors sand free.
Finally, Haley had the neighbour spy on us for our entire stay. And even though we had discussed getting extra guests over for a dinner, I still received warning emails during our stay. This paranoia again, is partly justified as it is a beautiful place and I would be worried about what strangers would do to it as well, however this really upset us during our experience and that's why we wouldn't rent this property again.
It is a jawdropping place, with gorgeous views of an infinity of ocean. But if you're looking for a stress free, kids run around, relaxing experience, I'm not sure this would be the best place.
