"Very outdated, dirty and small beach cottage"
We were less than impressed with Sandy Lane. You step into a house that probably has been owned since the early seventies and very little in it had been updated since then. You walk in and immediately see brooms, vacuums and big water jugs in front of the stairs (a hazard! And is not welcoming at all!) and it looks horrible. There needs to be a closet for these items. The kitchen is very small and has gross outdated countertops, but it seemed to be stocked well. It was unorganized but we fixed that quickly. The dishwasher is horrible. We resorted to washing dishes by hand. There are two dining tables which was nice but they are in the main living area which isn't set up very well. There are two very old and dirty couches. (Maybe a sectional would work better with the space?)There is lots of water damage on one wall that looks like it has been there for some time. It's caused the paneling to discolor and warp. There are plenty of beds in this house but not enough living space to accommodate all the people. The bed I slept on was very very old and uncomfortable. On the back of our door were approximately 15 pictures of surfers that were taped on the door. All looked like they had been there for 15 years and were peeling off. It looked horrible to someone that's was renting the room for a week.There is no bright fun decor anywhere. All of it is dingey and bland. No fun, bright beachy decor. Old country quilts cover the beds. Old dirty carpet, kitchen vinyl and couches. The retractable awning upstairs is nice but because that space doubles as a bedroom for 4, we couldn't use it as living space. As a result, we felt like there was no where for us all to be in the evenings. We have been staying on the island for over 40 years and have rented many beach houses through Emerald Isle Realty in that time. We feel like Sandy Lane did not meet our expectations at all. Furthermore, we feel like it shouldn't meet the expectations of EI Realty either. It just isn't up to par. We paid a fair and reasonable price to stay a week in this cottage and could have easily found something else that was a little more bright and cheery with room for the group to gather. One of the owners closets could have easily become a pantry and a place to put brooms and mops. Having the water cooler and two fridges were nice. A gas grill would have been a nice addition. The house is convienetly located to the grocery and shops. The beach is beautiful. EI Realty was up to par and responded to concerns immediately. But this house did not match up to competition and we will never rent this house again. We would also definitely not recommend this cottage to a friend. There are simply too many houses out there that far surpass Sandy Lane! Very disappointed!
Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that the decor of this home did not mesh well with your tastes. I understand your desire to have all things beachy when you're at the beach, and I encourage you to let your vacation planner know this when you call to book your next house with us. We will happily assist you in finding a home that has both the size and aesthetics that you need and desire. 40 years! Wow! We look forward to hosting you and your family for many more to come.
