While the Dune Rose may be older and weathered, what you pay to stay oceanfront makes up for it (similar homes were twice as much or more)! This house was great in our opinion. The entire third floor is open and spacious and great for family time. The third floor deck has a picnic table, three lounge Chris and a rocking chair with wonderful views of the dunes and the Atlantic Ocean. All the bedrooms were on the second floor. The bedroom my wife and I shared he a screened in deck with a swing and a hammock. There's a stairway that leads to a path which is cut through the vegetation (a landscaping crew did some trimming while we here) and leads to the boardwalk that goes over the dunes to the beach. There's showers and storage underneath the house.
If you're looking for luxury this isn't the right home. But if you're looking for a spacious home right on the beach this affordable Dune Rose is the right place! The ladies at Dolphin Realty are always friendly, accommodating and willing to work with you on payments....this is the seventh home we've rented from Dolphin.
We paid over 2,000 for a one week rental where there was mold in the bathroom. The double oven wouldn't operate correctly, paint is coming off the ceiling in one of the rooms, the air conditioning vent is taped on to keep from falling off, the refrigerator would freeze food, their is rust all over the lighting in one of the bathrooms, the washing machine sounded like it was going to fly away, the shower would leak water, there are nails coming up through the deck, and the upstairs bathroom isn't really usable if you want pruvacy. There was no light so you couldn't use the restroom with the door closed. I was very disappointed in this rental and will not return. I can't believe that the owner is okay with renting this property in the shape it is in. I would have expected it to be much nicer from the pictures. Some of the lights wouldn't work when you come in the house, as well as there are some lamps that don't even have light bulbs. The top oven would burn everything that goes in it bit if you put food in the lower oven it wouldn't cook it either. It might warm it though. This was by far the most horrible experience I have ever had staying at this home.
