- Very Good
The location was great. The house was great (bathrooms for every room), and beautiful decks. Beautiful outdoor eating space next to the grill. However, the Wifi and the TVs did not work for most of our stay.
“family annual affair”
Small improvements made since last year's rental much appreciated - extra outside second level deck chairs/table near grill, wood paneling on the stair well heavily trafficked between street level and main level. Let us emphasize that this property's # of bedrooms, bathrooms, decks for quiet solitude/work and street location suites our family annual beach vacation perfectly and after coming for many years, we have a rhythm and pattern to our get-away. However, what continues to be a problem is the late check-in and the cleaning service - You don't get to check-in until 3pm. And this year while we did get our keys about 3pm, we didn't have access to the house until almost 4:30 as the cleaning folks were still inside and asked that we wait. We did put in some refrigerator/freezer items before access granted. And the filter of the vacuum cleaner in the house had not been emptied for quite awhile and could have picked up little if used. We emptied it and vacuumed again.
“A Special Beach Property”
We have stayed at 214 Oakwood two times. It is a perfect size for our family, and we especially appreciate the proximity to the beach and to downtown Bethany. We also like that each bedroom has its own bath. Our stay was in mid-August, so the home showed a little wear from earlier summer rentals. The beach chairs were either broken or of very poor quality, and the home was not quite as clean as we would have liked. It would benefit from some interior painting and a general "clean out" of the pantry closet and kitchen. All-in-all, it is a great place to stay!
“Great place to spend time when you are not on the beach.”
This house has a great layout and works well with many people. It is definatly nice that each room has a bathroom and there is hot water for at lest three showers at once. The location is convent, close to down town, close to the beach and close to a pharmacy where you could get anything you need. Wish the house was cleaner, when you move the furniture in the living room you find dirt. Over all a good place to stay though.
“Annual retreat and a treat”
the house size, space, layout and location are absolutely wonderful. keep hoping that the next season we come that the owners will have painted the common living areas. it's looking a bit on the worn-out side on the walls.
“Any day at the beach is a lucky day!”
Overall, we were all very happy with the house. We are a group of 4 families with older children. It was nice having bathrooms attached to each bedroom. The kitchen was well stocked, lots of dishes and we really needed the extra refrigerator for the beer. We enjoyed the two screened-in porchs and the Margarita deck. We arrived the same time as the cleaners who were in and out of there fast. The beach area was very crowded.
Let me start by saying that we will be renewing our rental for the 2012 season because we love the place's layout and sleeping accommodations overall, the proximity to the beach, and more. It works well for our family and we've come to enjoy the familiarity of it. Love the new outside shower stall addition. However, each year the cleaning service seems to get worse. This year, while we got in by 2pm, we had to spend our time sweeping, vacuuming, washing and platter/utensils left dirty at the grill. The common rooms need painted inside badly, the teapot was rusted (replace it) and the coffeepot on last legs (replace please). These aren't things enough to make us not renew but it does color the feeling of value for the money spent. It would also be awfully nice if the trash pick-up situation was better - but when I called to say we'd been missed, somehow it then got picked up. So thanks.
Response from the manager Thanks for taking the time to write a review. The owners would like you to know that the home now has new cleaners for the 2012 season!
“Love the house, wish it was cleaner”
The house is very comfortable. Every bedroom has a bathroom and there is a variety of bed arrangements so spouses/siblings/singles can easily be accommodated. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking or baking and the grill is large and works well. The outside shower is in the front of the house and does not have anything for privacy so it is mostly just to rinse before you go upstairs to take a real shower. There a multilpe decks to serve different purposes. Plenty of places available to escape to if the crowd you come with becomes overwhelming.This was our fourth year in the house and we have yet to be satisfied with the cleanliness of it when we moved in--sandy floors (hardwood), tubs/showers not cleaned, dishes left by previous guests not all cleaned by the dishwasher, to name a few. But overall, we deal with the negatives and we will keep going back because the house suits us so well.
Response from the manager Thank you so much for being a loyal customer. The cleaning issues have been addressed (a cleaning inspector has been added this year). The outside shower is also being enclosed (knees to neck)!
