Wonderful location on the bay with a beautiful view.
But not disclosed in the description is that the home does not have a/c. One bedroom has a/c, but that's only enough to cool that bedroom. Turning on ceiling fans and opening doors and windows allows a wonderful bay breeze to come through, but when its 95 degrees outside, that's little help. If you stand perfectly still, you can avoid sweating when the wonderful 85 degree breeze blows in.
Also not disclosed in the description, is that the home has a separate apartment above it, which is rented out via govt assistance, and occupied by an 'interesting' tenant.
So when you're relegated to sitting on the back deck to avoid the sauna inside, the tenant above introduces herself repeatedly, plays her music loudly, and continually tries to talk to you. She'll let you know that she doesn't get her govt check for another 8 days, and will repeatedly 'bum' smokes off you. But if thats not entertaining enough, you get to ponder how she fits a size 20 body into a size 4 bikini, and then the real fun comes from trying to figure out what she's thinking as she stands in the back yard waving at passing ducks.
Wife and I arrived on Fri afternoon, scheduled to depart Sun morning. We actually drove around the area in the car for an hour just to get some a/c. And we left Sat night because it was raining hard, so sitting on the deck wasn't an option and we didn't want to sit on a bed just to stay cool.
But I give this place 5 stars, based solely on the sheer entertainment value experienced while trying to avoid the clingy neighbor, and trying to find out where to sit still without sweating. ( I failed miserably at both)
But this was my first (and probably last) time using airbnb, so I learned that I should've asked basic questions before booking. Does the house have a/c? Does the house have a loud, nosey tenant sharing the property?
I was trying to be nice and understanding, so I wasn't going to complain. But when the host texted me on Monday to let me know that I forgot to turn off the ceiling fans, I felt an honest review was warranted. Sorry Linda, if I cost you an extra 74 cents on your electric bill by not turning off the two ceiling fans in the house. But it was 92-96 degrees all weekend, I probably saved your sofa from melting.
We used one towel, took all of our trash with us, slept there only 1 of the two nights booked, and left you a half bottle of wine in the fridge.... but mea culpa, I left the ceiling fans on. Shoot me.
