We loved the house - it perfectly accommodated our group of 10
The only thing that needs to be done is the floors need to be washed not just swept after each rental I never wear shoes in the house and my feet were very dirty from the floors
I wish there were more rugs in the house to absorb sound and prevent tracking in sand/pollen Other than that everything was great
