          There are no amenities listed on this site, which is strange since so many customers use this service for referrals. That would be most helpful: washer/dryers available? what kitchen items are in stock? Also, i don't see a phone number listed. The last question was posted by someone seven days ago and still not answered. This is very odd to me and makes me feel uneasy as we are coming with our whole family in August and I expect our room to be clean and comfortable, at least. We are spending time on the beach and want to make sure we can clean our towels...cooking in most of the time so wondered if there was a blender. My niece, who made the arrangements, fortunately had the phone number of Jeremy, the manager, but he is out of the office today - also strange that calls do not get directed to someone else. I'd love to know what to expect. The reviews are all over the map. One thing I'd like to confirm is if the carpet is freshly shampooed. Cleanliness is utmost for us. Thank you for considering!
