Left on 08/15/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Ohio Family vacation
We had a large family group in this home and there was room for everyone. It was nicely furnished and comfortable. We loved the pool, pool "bar" and yard. They have a sound system with inside and outside speakers - a system for the pool area and another for the front deck. that was great and we used it a lot.
The kitchen was very functional but needed a few more things (more dish towels, some non-stick pans). We love the Whalehead location. This house was in the middle of the block and so had to walk past 5-6 house to get to beach access. One safety improvement we recommend is to install a railing with the pool steps.
Corolla Classic Vacations did provide maintenance service for a few items that we needed addressed. The service was acceptable but not particularly prompt. Read more

Having a sounds system is a great feature offered at Star of the Sea and I'm glad you enjoyed it!
I'll let the homeowner know your recommendation for the kitchen and pool steps.
We look forward to seeing you again!
