Somewhat nice house, TERRIBLE appliances
This could be a lovely house. Really. The space is delightful, it's in an amazing location and the house is really, really big. Love the decks. The rooms are all spacious.
But the house is honestly falling apart. The owner just has not taken care of it at all. I get that it's a rental property and it takes a beating, but when you pay what one pays to rent a house of this size for a week, you expect things like, say, an ice maker...or a microwave with a handle that doesn't fall off when you try to use it...or doors that can actually be latched. Seriously - in a house that sleeps almost 20 people, we were provided two tiny ice trays. That's absurd. On the rental site it says that the kitchen, etc was to be updated in 2015 as all the photos were posted in 2013. It has not been updated and needs it in the worst way. VERY dated.
The walls and bathrooms are all in need of paint and freshening, the wood on the cabinets in many places just dissolving. Most of the beds were very (overly firm) for our tastes. The dryer vent was disconnected and had been venting into the pantry for quite some time.We actually called about it - the pantry was full of lint as a result. The fix took about 5 minutes once the repairman arrived - but this just serves as evidence of how little care is being taken of the place. To his credit, upon being advised of the dryer vent, the owner did respond immediately and effectively.
The pool is a great size. The latch on one gate is broken, a safety hazard with smaller children. Some of the outdoor furniture, particularly on the 2nd floor decks was in poor repair and a few of the chairs are completely covered in rust.
Overall, we were a bit disappointed in the house because of the condition of the property. We've stayed in Sunset Beach before and were really excited to be staying in the community again because we thought we knew what to expect. Clearly, we were wrong. This house has a lot of potential, but it has been neglected and is certainly not up to the standards we would expect of such a house and location.
I'm not sure what the renter meant by house falling apart!!! The interior wa completely repainted, every room/wall etc in April 2017. So either it wasn't the renters color or she was just being picky. I agree renter was correct on ice maker- parts have been ordered and I found out about microwave handle was broken and that has been ordered as well.
The dryer vent became disconnected and it was reconnected asap after hearing about it. That has nothing to do w maintenance on house. When a problem is noticed or mentioned it is addressed asap. The mattresses are commercial/hotel grade- I can't offer different mattresses for every guest. Sorry.
I've had 200+ renters and really have had only a couple of reviews like this. Most of my summer renters come back every year and don't write reviews.
If you have questions feel free to email me. I hope you will give the blue whale a chance. Because if you do, you'll be back.
Great Family Vacation
We stayed at the Blue Whale in September for a family vacation and it was great. The house was huge with 3 floors and an ocean view. It had 6 bedrooms which was perfect for the large group we had. The beach is right across the street, I would say a short 50 yards. The beach was great and not crowded at all. We brought our own beach chairs down there but others had rentals already set up on the beach. The house also has a pool which was great to cool off in when it got too hot down at the beach. Most of the time we cooked as the house has a very large kitchen and living room. There was a Publix right down the road where we bought most of our food which was very convenient. I also enjoyed the location as you were in a nice gated community but only 10 minutes from Watercolor and Seaside. I would also suggest eating out at Stinkys Fish Camp which is right down the road from the house. All in all it was a great trip and we are looking forward to staying at the Blue Whale again in 2015.
