It was totally amazing loved every bit of our stay. We could of not ask for any better vacation.
The property was very nice and very clean and a beautiful view of the beach right our front window. And Pam was there for to answer all our questions and needs we could call her at anytime. Hoping to go back again in a couple of years and take our boys and there families with us. Thanks so much for such a wonderful experience we enjoyed our whole stay.
“Could” be a nice property........but isn’t.
There’s really nothing about this property that I can find positive to say. The view is outstanding but that has nothing to do with the condition of the house. The house was filthy. Filthy in a way that makes you “think” the sheets haven’t been washed. Stove looks like it has never been cleaned and the microwave was pretty much the same. Kitchen island had dried food or spillage on it. Refrigerator door had food all over the handle area and the front of it was just as gross. Coffee pot was broken, many of the light fixtures didn’t work, cabinet doors were grimy, no organization of any kitchen utensils ( and they were pathetic) most of the teflon on the pots/pans was worn off. Mold or dirt that was black, behind kitchen faucet on back splash. All bakeware (which isn’t much) and cookware thrown into the cabinets. The dust on EVERYTHING was so thick. Light fixtures, furniture, tv’s window sills (most had bugs on them) all the doors, moldings, baseboards, bathroom vanities, even the toilet paper holders! First bedroom had no working lights except the overhead. Full size bed so broken down our guest could feel the springs in their backs all night. Had to buy a foam topper and extra pillows because there was only ONE for that bed. All linens are threadbare as well as the towels. Dingy, old and the bath mats had not been washed because there was some kind of something ground into them. The screened in porch was consisdered an amenity in case of foul weather. Thankful the weather was outstanding because that area was just plain nasty. Grill had so much caked on dried food. Grilling utensils were just as gross. Paper plates, foil, grill brush scattered on the floor and the furniture had mild dew all over it, worn out and we would never sit on any of it. Overall this property was run down, neglected and unkept.
I reached out to her upon our arrival suggesting she should fire her cleaning service because of all of the above, only to get a text back that said “sorry” :( I informed her a week or so ahead that we were bringing 4 more guest which were family. Total of 6 which says on her listing the place can accommodate. I expected a slight up charge but what she actually charged was excessive and unreasonable.
I would not recommend.
VRBO has been informed with my complaints along with 40 pictures
I have asked for a refund on the cleaning fee and the excessive up charge.
On day 1 of your check in you texted me to fire my cleaners i trusted you even though i completely disagree with your experience i still replaced the cleaners.. On the day of your check out you sent me a text message asking for $600 refund solicitation with a unkind email when i refused you resorted to such hurtful and reputation damaging tactics. VRBO has investigated your complaint and cleared me from all you accuse and my account remains in good standing per their email and their case is now closed. it is unfortunate that you did not ask for the cleaners to return during your entire stay and choose to make this unpleasant after your checkout. Also, i do not deserve your attempt to damage my property (based on concerned neighbor's report) and that attempt was very very painful
Lovely beach cottage with a wrap around deck!
This is the ultimate place to go if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation. From watching dolphins play in the ocean to seeing beach eagles in their own habitat this house offers nature's beauty at its best. The house itself is lovely and spacious, my family will be booking it again next year!
Perfect getaway and location!
Had such a wonderful stay! This location is ideal for someone looking for a quiet, peaceful and gorgeous beach getaway. The week that we were there, we only saw a handful of other people and felt like we had the beach to ourselves the whole time. It's perfect for walking, sightseeing and just getting away from it all.
The home had all the amenities we needed, and the kitchen was decently equipped. The wrap around porch was perfect for watching both the sunrise and sunset. We are looking forward to going back, and would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for retreat away from it all.
If you are looking for a quiet out of the way spot to relax this is it! The property was beautiful as was the view and Pam was great to work with!
Great peace ..and Awesome views.
My husband and I came for our 30th anniversary, to share us time. The view was awesome! Pam was so nice and very helpful at all times and had us a bottle of wine waiting :-) Looking forward to coming back.
