Villa Noel is a very nice home. It is nicely decorated and is a bright, cheery, beachy vacation home. The location is wonderful just across Gorrie road from the beach with beach access right here. The House was very clean when we arrived. The hot tub was great and all the jets were working. The cover is in good condition and not falling apart as another review claimed. The yard here is in fine shape. We have rented several homes on the Island over the years and this home had fewer sand burrs than any other home we rented. It was great for the dogs and I could actually walk in the yard with rubber sole shoes and not have them covered with sand burrs as happened at other houses we have rented. When you are in a beach area, there will always be some sand burs. The kitchen has a great supply of dishes, utensils, and pots and pans. The TVs - all five of them are realitely new flat screens and all worked great. We are currently staying here and have been here almost a month. Two couples and the layout for us is great! Full size washer and dryer and two refrigerators made life at the home a breeze. The large porch and the big sun deck are wonderful places to sit and enjoy the views.
1st, we had tried to find out from the rental insurance people if the potential hurricane would allow us to cancel. Run around city, they just read the policy to me without giving any answers. I was told I would have to call back after the trip was almost over to find out. We decided to come anyway mainly because we paid for it already. The weather is rough but we are making the best of it. We arrived to a house not prepared for new guests and nobody here finishing. We had to call to get someone to do it. The house is laid out well and fits our 8 well. The front door needs replaced but they came and greased the track to try to help. The front deck railing is rotted and needed a temporary repair to try to make it a little safer. The outside is rough the landscaping is bad. We brought our dog and she had no place to go without getting sand burrs in her feet. Don't think about walking barefoot anywhere including the pool area because the sand burr plants are growing in the fenced area. The hot tub is hot and wet but that is it because it has issues. Location great,view good, house laid out well but could use TLC. Carpet at the beach is horrible since the sand burrs get stuck in it and then your feet. At the end of the day we will be looking everywhere for our next rental unless they do some of the things they need to. The front door and the hot tub we're concerns back in 2016 and obviously not addressed.
