Will not come back

  • 2 of 5

After reading the reviews of cottage #5 we were all excited for our stay. When we got there none of the dishes were clean, we opened up the pull out couch (where someone would be sleeping all week) to find huge brown stains under the cushions and under those was a paper thin plastic covered mattress. The couch smelt from the questionable stains on every cushion and pillow. The neighbors were nice but extremely bossy of what we could and could not do (they were not the ones who owned the cottage). For example, when we arrived around 12 the owner said we could use the pool facilities and go to the beach before check in at 4. We called that day and he said we could check in at 2 since we got their early. The neighbors said we were absolutely not allowed to park in our spot because the cleaning person was suppose to come even though clearly they could fit in the spot as well, then the cleaning services were not done until 4 and obviously did not clean everything. When we returned home we were told that $50.00 would be taken out of our security deposit because 2 pans "would not come clean" and we had too much laundry. Why provide towels and sheets for your guests if your going to take their money for using it? Maybe you could provide clean dishes and a clean, non disgusting, sleeping arrangement for your guests.

Wonderful place-can't wait to go again.

  • 5 of 5

Blue Heron #5 is a wonderful place to stay. Joe was very nice, flexible and helpful. The cottage was so cute and clean. My wife and I, our daughter, son-in-law and grandson stayed for 3 days. We walked to dinner on Saturday and lunch on Sunday. We are already planning another stay. You can't go wrong staying in #5.

Always a nice, relaxing time at Blue Heron!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay with lots of beach sand and surf close by. Cottage is decorated in the beach theme. Very nice. We enjoy the birds, the pool and being able to step right out into the sand. Good places to walk to for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. Sleeps no more then 4 people.
