Amenities & Room:
but the people downstairs were freezing
so the first thing I had to do was remove all the drawers and bleach the fridge
but we mostly loved having a spacious kitchen to prepare meals and plenty of room to eat and relax together A few things to note As mentioned in a previous review the dock paint has oxidized and...
I asked the housekeeper for one
Very clean nice three bedroom with lots of ammenities for cooking cleaning and other needed items
Host:
So there was some confusion when we arrived
and she said she would bring it the next morning but never did
no one met us - which was fine except that the owner had previously told us that someone would meet us
the housekeeper appeared at the house immediately and was very apologetic
so we are hopeful that some time in the sun will help
Location:
but it was a little too late
The fridge had leftover food and was full of (spoiled) liquid from someone's fish
It worked out beautifully - we parked the boat right behind the house and it was extremely convenient
We ended up rolling out carpets and leaving a pair of shoes on the dock and a pair on the boat Beware of this When we arrived
The house clearly sustained some hurricane damage and there is a lot of peeling paint on the walls and there are even unfinished 2x4's nailed around the door frames where there was damage
