There were some safety concerns around the house - specifically the steps going from the sunroom into the house, they are very steep and caused a few tumbles (both adults and kids), and one of the main doors is pretty rusted/jagged, so we had to keep the kids clear from it. The kitchen has a decent supply of utensils and pots/pans, but they aren't great quality. The cleanliness of the home wasn't great when we checked in which was disappointing (still food in the fridge from previous tenants, sticky counters, dirty dishes/utensils). But we didn't mind cleaning as we went - it was all manageable.
We did have some questions regarding the beach access and our questions were answered really quickly via text which was appreciated.
We would love to rent here again - the house is older and with that comes quirks and whatnot which is expected on the cape, but for the price we just expected more on the upkeep/cleanliness side of things. The beach was the selling point of this house. It really was perfect.
Bedroom all have good mattresses and are very clean and comfortable. There are two master suites that are not fancy at all, but work great. The house is above a very nice and clean pond, but access is via a long stairway with a small dock. Great for swimming, and you can launch your canoe or kayak from a community beach that is a few houses away. A/C works great and patio has lots of seating for outdoor eating. Overall a great house. Not cheap by any means, but just as advertised.
There was a minor leak in the basement from the right side first floor bath and shower. Did not bother us at all. Just wanted to give you a "heads up"
Beautiful , huge house with roomy kitchen to prep meals. Our is cozy & still roomy enough to “ get lost” in..Steep staircases would be a problem for older folks. Being the elders we took downstairs bedroom and bathroom. All in all it was everything Sotheby’s described & the owners were nearby and wonderfully responsive to our questions. Very nice people!
Response from Gibson Sotheby's International RealtyThank you so much for your review, and we’re happy to hear that you had a great stay at the home. We are sorry to hear about the grill during your stay with us and for any inconvenience this caused as well. At Gibson SIR, it’s our highest priority to make sure our guests have the best experience possible, but if problems do arise, we try our very best to make things right in any way we can. This includes having multiple communication platforms to ensure we are reachable 24/7. Due to the challenging year, GSIR changed the check in time to 4PM in order to get all our properties cleaned and inspected to our high standards for our incoming guests. When departing guests leave at 10:00, we have a finite number of hours until the next guests arrive at 4:00 pm, and we are generally turning over a large number of properties. A vacation rental is not the same as a hotel in that all of our homes are completely unique, with large living areas both indoors and out that take much more time to clean and inspect. Sometimes, we also need to schedule maintenance activities while the home is empty between guests. Because every home is different and guests have reserved a specific property, we can't shuffle arriving guests to the next available room in the way that a hotel can. Due to these constraints, our check-in and check-out times need to be firm. Please let us assure you that we value your feedback, and your comments have been passed along to the homeowner. Thanks again for your flexibility and patience and wish you all the best. Gibson SIR- Rental Team
