The location of our home was perfect for our trip, especially for families with children. It was right on the beach, so there was no need to cross the street with all of our beach gear. About 1-2 miles from all the hustle and bustle of the restaurants and shops. The home was older, but well-kept and very clean! We will definitely be back!

The location can not be beat. Could use some more toilet paper. One roll per bathroom for a 3 night stay was not enough and that's not the sort of thing I want to buy at the store. That and some kitchen basics like salt, pepper, and olive oil. I remember we had to buy all that stuff last year too and throw it all away because we flew in and it feels wasteful every time. This year we had access to the beach equipment in the closet and that was great. Loved it! Highly recommend for time on the beach with friends and family.

My family and I had a great time at Life after Five! The best part is being right on the beach! We will be using Harris for our next vacation!

We were very impressed with the property. The location was great. Steps away from the water. The home was the perfect size. I would definitely rent this one again.

Excellent location. Beach is steps away over a dune. Umbrellas provided to use on the deck. Would stay here again.

We really loved the location of the property. The kids loved the fact that we were right on the beach! The only issues we really had---the mattress in the master bedroom was uncomfortable and the two futon couches in the living room were uncomfortable to sit on as well. Some things definitely needed updated / TLC (the balcony outside of the master bedroom was a bit unsafe) but overall everything else was great. Again, the location was the best feature of this house! We were two minutes from downtown and on the Strip where everything happens. Also the property manager was great at communicating and responding to questions and providing accurate answers in a timely manner through text messaging. We will definitely book with Harris Vacation Rentals again! Also a tip to the wise: book directly through Harris---VRBO took out a $500 fee for themselves for doing nothing but listing the property. I just felt this was a small fortune and completely ridiculous.

Even though you aren’t by yourself with a private beach it really feels like it are. This location is in a quiet area that’s not far away from everything. The house is completely amazing. If I had to find one thing that could have been better is the mattresses. They are pretty firm which some people like so to each their own. I would absolutely stay here over and over again!!
