Adorable beach home in a great location. Adequate space for our large family. Love the porches. Very close to the back pier and walkable to the best beaches on Tybee. The kitchen has a large butcher block island - so everyone can help make dinner. If you plan to eat in, you might want to bring a few pots and pans and cooking utensils. There aren't a lot of cooking supplies in the kitchen. Strong Wi-Fi that kept all of our teenagers happy while downloading videos and uploading pictures. Andrew - the property manager - was very helpful and responsive. Great stay here.
The layout of the house was great, all nine of us were able to fit comfortably. The screened in porch was a huge plus! The location was very convenient- we were close enough to the beach but far away enough from the 4th of July weekend congestion on the island. We did have problems with the water pressure (I'm not sure if the host has control over that) and the general cleanliness of the showers and most of the dishes/utensils in the kitchen.
Arrival and obtaining keys was easy.
The property left a bit to be desired in terms of cleanliness and general repair. Master bedroom sheets did not appear clean and there was hair from previous guests. The bath mat in the downstairs bath appeared to have been washed but visibly stained with previous dirt. Water pressure upstairs was almost unusable. House is in a general is OK especially for its location close to the beach, and some sand and dirt is expected, but it was definitely so noticeable that you did not want to walk around bare foot.
Front porch is nice, but furniture on it is in disrepair and it was quite dirty.
There is nothing extra stocked in the kitchen and baths ie. soap, trash bags etc. They expect you to take out the trash and strip the beds but charge over $100 for cleaning and don't even give you a trash bag to take it out. That I didn't understand.
It was large and good for what we needed it for but probably would not stay at this property again. Average overall.
The location of the house was great. It was a short and direct walk to the beach. The TVs (only 2 in the entire house) did not have cable, which was a bummer. The water pressure left a lot to be desired. Overall the house was fine for a 2 night stay, I don't think I could manage an entire week without cable and significantly better water pressure! Irina was easy to get a hold of and quickly responded to my questions.
Our stay in this beach house made us feel like we were part of the community for a few days. It was a very relaxed, casual and authentic to the area — a great house for the price. It was ready when we arrived, all of our instructions were clear and it looked just like the photos. You can't see the ocean from the house but it is just a short walk down the road to a great public beach, plenty of restaurants and a cute little "downtown." It is family friendly and the outdoor hose/shower was great for washing off sandy feet. Thankfully, the wifi was strong, so it was easy to check in at work before heading out for the day.
The house was perfect! Lots of space, wonderful kitchen, great porch, loved the hot tub, and only a few blocks from the beach! I will definitely be staying here again in the future!
This was my first experience with airbnd, and I must say Shack A La Russe was a hit for my family. The listing was accurate. The pictures don’t do this place justice. For large family gatherings it’s the best. The neighborhood is very close to the beach.
