Bachelor Party Weekend
For the price, this house is great for a small group of people. There was 6 of us and it fit us very comfortably. Kitchen was very spacious, couch was super comfortable, and the wrap around deck was amazing!

However, there were just a couple things that kept it from being 5 stars. I think they keep the power off whenever no one is staying, because there was a mildew-ish smell when we first arrived, and the fridge still wasnt cold and there was water all in the bottom of the freezer. They instruct in the cleanup to take all the trash out, but there was no trash bags. They want you to clean up all of the dishes, but there was no soap or dishwasher pods. They provided just two rolls of toilet paper for the weekend when they knew several people were coming to the house. It was kind of strange. The thing that sucked the most is we lost power for 6 hours and the property management company seemed to not care and pretty much was just like oh well.

All in all, I would return back. Especially now that I know what all to bring when coming.

Good location on Bolivar Peninsula
Great location close to a beach/fishing and layout of home was good; nice deck with shade and covered parking area. House could use some deep cleaning, particularly the carpets which had pet stains in several areas.

On The Rocks Review
At first we had a little trouble with the refrigerator. It would not get cold. Devin came out and fixed the problem promptly. We wasn't told the TV in the bedrooms were not working until we got there. But nonetheless we still manage to have a fun time. The house itself is very beautiful. Easy access to the beach was a major plus and the view from the balcony was outstanding.

Review of on the rocks
On the rocks is a great home. Views are great.right next to the jetties. Home is overall awesome. Love the stainless steel counter top. Quick walk to the beach or jetty to fish. Couple things I didn't like. Could not get either tv in bedrooms to work(called swedes talked to a lady and they never got back with me) if I could change anything it would be getting direct tv and making sure the tvs in bedrooms work.

The house was very nice and spacious. Nicely decorated. The deck was amazing. Our dogs loved being able to hang outside on deck with us. The patio furniture left a lot to be desired.
1. Having to pay extra for linens or bring your own, then having to make beds upon arrival!?!?! I was told they started this due to Covid.... I don’t think this is an excuse any more. Having to pay extra for linens, which includes everything, I.e. towel, kitchen, towels etc....Very Inconvenient and I Have Never Had To Do At Any Other Rental!
2. There was only roll of paper towels and 1 roll of toilet paper to share between 2 bathrooms.
3. You have to drive an additional 10/15 minutes to pick up and return key, even though there is a lock box on deck. The property is only a couple minutes right off of ferry. Having to travel 10/15 minutes past the property and then turn around and go back that direction is a little annoying.
