Beautiful location, easy access to the beach and town! Amazing rooftop views of both the bay and the ocean. The house is perfect for large groups. We held a family reunion there with 12 people and the open space was great. There was plenty of hot water. However, the rental wa…

Ultimately the host became so obtrusive and would not leave the rental that we had to call 911 and get a uniformed police officer to respond. The remainder of the weekend she was naked outside (within view of my guests) while her 3 children scream and yelled, dog barked and came …

Response from Gennaro:
Clay was NOT a good guest. He lied to me & scammed me. He rented the house for a supposed "family trip" & actually did a COMMERCIAL photo shoot for his business without my permission at the house. When I told him I wasn't comfortable with him using my house in this commercial manner he called the police on me to try & evict me from my own apt in the house. The police laughed at him and he got very upset & had a hissy fit and stomped back upstairs to his commercial photo shoot. There was no "surprise" engagement...he was promoting his trip on (Hidden by Airbnb) & (Hidden by Airbnb) using photos of my house publicly to promote his business... I did not want my house publicly photographed Clay clogged the toilet and I had to go upstair with the plunger and clean out the toilet from him clogging it. It was in 100% working order when he arrived. The plunger was next to toilet which he didn't use. I came upstairs to clean out the toilet of his waste. There are 25 window blinds in the whole house. He wanted all of the pulled up to the maximum opening which we never do and 1 blind he was unable to open fully. He wanted them pulled up to the complete top. That was the only issue with 1 of the blinds. The bathroom sink faucet was also fine and 100% functional but he wasn't happy with it because it jiggles a tiny bit. The listing clearly says that I have an owners apt on the premise and I would be on site in my separate apt. I also told him this before he arrived. This is clearly stated in the listing that be booked and I also told him before he arrived. The house has 2 separate apartments. He had his own private 5 bedroom apt with his own private deck & green roof. Clay also did not ask if he could bring his dog into the apartment. He TOLD me he was bringing his emotional support animal which he did not provide any documentation on. Guests bringing animals are NOT allowed with this booking . I called airbnb when I have was having issues with this guest because he was not using the house for the purposes that he booked it for. I am a very private homeowner & he was using the house for a commercial photo shoot and advertising it on (Hidden by Airbnb) to promote his business using the hashtags of the street name which is only 1 block long in a private community. I did not book the house for a commercial photo shoot or give him permission to move everything and leave it in total disarray. I asked him kindly to make sure the house was left as he found it and he did not. He changed almost every location of 50% of the furniture and every single piece of wall hanging was removed and left in the downstairs level. I answered every request he had and I have the text messages as proof of this. I did everything I could to make sure his stay was satisfactory and the main issue he had was when HE clogged the toilet and I had to unclog it. He asked me for a maid to come after he painted & redid the whole house & I provided him with my housekeeper which he was responsible for paying & getting his own receipt for. He had her phone number & I was only helping him out. The color of the walls was the same color in the photos and he wanted to repaint it for his commercial photo shoot. He told me he would pay to have them repainted if we didn't like the color.

This house is indeed steps from the beach and comfortably slept 12 people. The upper deck is big enough to seat the full group and is quiet and serene, a great spot for hearing the crashing waves. The host was very responsive to issues we came across once we checked in, including…

The hosts were very easy to communicate with, and met us at their house to explain all the ins and outs. The house was in a beautiful quite community very close to ocean beach, which made our vacation both very convenient but relaxing and quiet. My only complaint is I wish we c…
