good time with good friends
Came with a couple we are friends with, we had a wonderful time. Your property was part of our great experience.
I have 2 very small area that would improve your property, shower-head in back bedroom is not very good, and the shower caddy in main bathroom is rusty, and should be removed it distracts from your great decorating for the island feel. Very small items but thought you would like to know.
I’m so glad you enjoyed the house and pine island. Thank you for letting us know about the shower caddy and shower head Come back any time!

Awesome launch site and paddling
Perfect holiday getaway
We were a little concerned since property had some negative reviews prior to our stay. However, the small things that were pointed out were fixed when we stayed. Had two hairdryers, plenty of towels, hot tub and pool were clean. The house was clean and nicely stocked for a week's stay. We loved location and quiet, laid-back setting.
We did have a couple small issues, questions and Jeannie responded timely to the concerns.
We would recommend staying here!!!
Thank you for the review. Come back any time!

OKAY, but needs some TLC!!!
We actually had a blast, but the house needs constant TLC. This POSSIBLY COULD be a huge winner and we would return! Our group of 6 (3 couples) rented this house for a week for a fishing trip & some R&R. We arrived after dark: no lights were left on (thank you apple for the flashlight app!!!). MAJOR GRIPE: HOUSE INFORMATION NOTEBOOK was a joke. Needs updated big time, WIFI password available, trash/recycle info, check out time, local TV channels. CONS: All 3 BEDROOMS could use new, quality pillows & linens & a thorough cleaning. All 3 BATHROOMS could use a blow dryer (only 1 was provided), bath mats as well as ample, better quality towels & washcloths would be a plus. Toilet paper & tissue should be provided by the host. KITCHEN: garbage sacks should be provided. We had to wash dishes & utensils before use. Drawers & cupboards could definitely use a thorough cleaning, organization, as well as newer appliances (coffee pot, toaster). The freezer, ice machine needs looked at as someone prior had stuffed paper towel in the ice/water dispenser on the door. We had water all over the kitchen floor one night & had to use a precious bath towel to soak up the water. Also, more than 2 dishtowels could be provided as well as dish rags. OUTSIDE: GRILL was Nasty, nasty. We could not use. Needs cleaned or replaced with a gas grill. KAYAKS were filthy & gross. We pulled them outside & washed them off; noticed the bottoms had been "repaired" with silicone caulk that was peeling away. Needless to say, we didn't even try to put them in the water for fear of taking on water and sinking! So, we tried 2 BICYCLES & found one bike totally flat & the other marginal. If you advertise you should be diligent about maintenance. Maybe even leave a tire gauge and a little air compressor. POOL: Chair pads & tables were gross: needed cleaned. A garbage can would have been nice at pool area. HOT TUB: needs attention. Cover had mold & needed cloroxed, water reeked! BUGS: Hornet's nest in the wicker chair on the front porch. Patron was stung TWICE!! Lots of cockroaches (dead & live), Tons of ants nightly in garage/pool area. MISC: Would be helpful if there was a basic tool box, replacement light bulbs, newer beach towels, coolers, tote bags for the beach/fishing trips. Maybe a bait bucket? PLUSES: Location, Hot water heater, paint job inside and out, pool & boat dock - AWESOME!!
Thank you for the review. Wish you had let us know about the hot tub and grill or anything else. We would have addressed it while you were there.
Renters are not allowed the use of the boat lift that is listed with the house. House was not cleaned after last person staying. Crackers, cereal was on the floor, the coffee pot still had the gounds left in and coffee was still in the pot. It had grown into a green fungus. The hot tub that is advertised in the listing had a green band inside at the water line and very low on water. There was dirty towels (11 of them) left in the washing machine!!! I am very disappointed in this rental!!!!!
I’m so sorry about all that. I think I told you we had refugees from the hurricane stay there and they told us they cleaned it. We were out of town and not home to confirm this. We trusted they did clean it. So sorry it was left like that. Normally we have a cleaning company do all our cleaning and hey do a great job. No more hurricane evacuee generosity from us!!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at “Paradise Nest”. Very nice accommodations with lots of room and it’s conveniently located for both inshore / offshore fishing. There is plenty of good places to dine near by as well. Hope to come back soon.
So glad you had a good time. Come back any time.
