The property was as advertised but some things were left to figure out when we arrived. We had no access to the garages and listing doesn't specify. Garage would have be great since it was pouring down rain when we arrived. There is a hose in the back yard to wash sand off before going inside, but the gate has a lock so you can not get into the back yard without going through the house. After hours phone calls were never returned, ever. During hours they are prompt to answer and remedy problems. If pool heating is needed, it takes about 12 hours to heat up to usable temperature. Location was great. Short walk over boardwalk (parking at entrance) to uncrowded section of beach. Overall a great rental.
