Good location, but misleading description

  • 3 of 5
The best part about this rental was the proximity to the beach. We had 3 kids with us, so it was great for them to be able to run back and forth to the water.

The unit itself is tiny and we were disappointed to find that the downstairs (bedroom, bath, and tiny kitchenette) is not connected inside to the upstairs. It was weird to be separated from the rest of the family. Also, the ad talks about how great it is to be on a pedestrian street, but fails to mention that you can't actually access the pedestrian street from the unit. The only way to enter the property is through the driving alley.

We rented bikes through the owners, and they were pretty run down and rusty, but serviceable. However, it was a struggle to shove two bikes into the side walkway, and we were then required to always enter/exit through the garage. Don't go here if you need to rent more than two bikes.

Also, the neighbors are extremely sensitive. A couple of family members came to visit one day and we sat on the back patio talking. One of them has a very loud voice when enthusiastically story-telling. A neighbor called the owner to complain we were too loud...at 6 PM.

Still, it was clean and had a good (but miniature) kitchen. It was a quick walk to get to stores, restaurants, and the beach.

Owner's Response: Wow, these people were very hard to please.
We met them at the property when they arrived to check them in and make sure they liked the property and to answer their questions. We also provided soft drinks and bottled waters for them..
Everything was 150% fine for them at this time and they said they were very happy and excited to be in the property...
We did receive a few of complaints from the neighbors for the late night drinking and partying that did occur at the property...The neighbors politely called them to ask if they could please keep their voices down since it was 12 midnight and these neighbors had to work the next day...We also called them and asked them to please respect our neighbors peace and quite and to try and not be so loud...They didn't like being told to be quite since they had been drinking at this point and hung up the phone on us..Very disrespectful..
They rented bikes not from us but from a local bike shop that is able to deliver bikes if a guest of ours does wish to rent bikes and wants to use them for the week..The bike rental stands that are along beach only rent for the day and are a much higher cost..I'm sorry to hear they didn't like the bikes but the telephone number of the bike shop is on the bike its self and I know the shop would have been happy to exchange any bike that they felt was not operating satisfactory.
The description of this cottage in this listing is very accurate, and it states that the 3rd bedroom is separate and has a private entrance..I'm sorry that they didn't read it thoroughly.
We have been renting this beach cottage for over 20 years now, and we have never had a complaint. We have had hundreds of families rent this that come back every summer year upon year..The cottage is small, but that's why its a cottage not a house or villa...
I hope his helps you...
