Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to thank the owners for providing such a wonderful vacation home. Gone Shellin was perfect and exactly what I was looking for to relax and unwind. Clean and comfortable with everything I needed to enjoy my 2 weeks on the beach. I highly recommend this wonderful home. I give it 5 stars...the highest rating.

Complained about construction noise and they charged us extra

  • 1 of 5

We have stayed next door (Gone Catchin) twice over the years and they weren't available this week, so we tried next door (Gone Shellin). We checked in Monday and the WIFI wasn't working. Called the office and they sent someone out who fiddled with the router (turn this switch on and off five times) and it worked, but then the cable went out for the rest of our stay. We watched TV via my laptop.

Wednesday morning a huge delivery truck arrived at our duplex, an 18 wheeler, delivering wood and other supplies. Then the construction noise began. Thursday and Friday we were treated to drilling, sawing, and hammering every time we wanted to sit on the deck and hear the ocean. When we complained on Friday the owner said "sorry" several times, offered a "free" night or 10% off a stay NEXT year. We wouldn't stay an additional day to hear more construction noise and next year is up in the air!

To top it all off, the owner emailed and told me she didn't know about our dog and is going to charge us an additional $100! Our very first email to them, asking about available dates read "A middle aged couple and their beach-loving dog. We have stayed Gone Catchin twice! :)" I'm very disappointed in this stay, to say the least. We will not be staying at either place ever again. BEWARE!

Owner's Response: I apologized numerous times to our guest and gave her $100 off for this stay which amounted to a 20% discount since they were only staying 5 days. The pet fee was waived. We also offered a free day but she declined. She never said anything about the TV not working. This is the first I've heard about it. We have a management company that takes very good care of our guests. She never complained to them or that would have been fixed immediately. The next door neighbors were installing a SMALL outside shower. This was not a big construction job at all. We knew nothing about it prior to this. They worked only 2 days from 10:30 until 3 pm with a break for lunch. Our neighbors apologized to this guest too but her husband swore at them and told them "F" you. Not exactly a nice "middle aged couple" as they called themselves. These people have no complaints about our home ,the amenities or the area. They are complaining about our neighbors...who I can't control. We have NEVER had a complaint or bad review in the 10 years we have been renting our home. We gave them money off, offered a free day ( the neighbors outdoor shower was completed) and a substantial discount if they wanted to come back again. She said she would give us a bad review if we did'nt give her more. We feel we were extremely fair. We can't control what the next door neighbors do but we tried rectify this the best we could. They were just trying to "SCAM" a free vacation out of us. I wish I would post their names so other people can "BEWARE" of them.

Quaint place but needs a little attention

  • 4 of 5

Everyone at the office was very nice and the home was beautifully decorated.....

However , the sleeper sofa was full of sand, the floors had sand under the furniture, and did not appear mopped, the refrigerator leaked water, one of the eyes on the stove did not work, only one dishcloth and one dish towel, no dishwahing liquid, or extra toilet paper.We had to go buy things that other home owners supply" initially"....Some of the extra blankets did not look clean.

Otherwise the home was well furnished and we enjoyed our stay.....

Owner's Response: I'm very glad you had a good stay, we really keep our home in excellent condition. In response to some of the issues you raised...It 's hard to keep a beach house sand free! In regard to that and the other things mentioned all that had to be done was call me (the owner) or my management company. No one called to say anything . The refrigerator is less than 1 year old and Frigidaire has sent repairmen over 10 times. It leaks periodically (a small amount of water on the inside upper shelf) . That is still being worked on by the repairman. We thought it was fixed. I will check with my management company about dish towels. When I was there 3 weeks before, I had plenty of them in the drawers. Dish soap is usually supplied too. Everything in our home is clean and well maintained.

My family had the BEST vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We love the Cape and the entire area..including Port St.Joe. Gone Shellin is beautiful. Very comfortable furniture and beds. The decorating is adorable! All beachy colors and designs. Really nice open deck for sitting and reading a book. Lovely kitchen with everything needed to cook or barbeque outside. Almost on the beach, only 1 house from it. Very quiet ..We will come back every year, maybe twice a year!

Back again...

  • 5 of 5

Back again this year and everything is just as good, if not better, than last year. This place (the duplex, the complex, the cape) is perfect for a stress-free peaceful vacation.
