Adorable, pet-friendly, beach retreat!

  • 4 of 5

Last year was our 2nd time staying at Kristin's adorable cottage, and we have just rented it again for a week this summer. We love the fact that the cottage is walking distance to Long Sands AND the fact that Kristin allows us to bring our large dog to stay with us. It's hard to find a summer rental that will allow dogs, let alone one that is 130 lbs!

Upon arrival, the cottage was clean with beautiful new furniture and many pillows and blankets readily available. Kristin provides everything we need (utensils, coffee maker, and pots and pans). We enjoy the large fenced-in backyard for our dog to play in and to roast marshmallows by the fire pit at night! There is a lot of deck space for meals and barbecues at night, equipped with beautiful lights!

We definitely recommend this cottage for any renters with a family and/or pet as being affordable and convenient! We can't wait to return this summer!

Filthy, unkept, photos are deceiving

  • 1 of 5

Pictures are not what the house actually looks like - renters beware! My family arrived at the house while the "cleaning lady" was still there, so the woman told us she was finishing up and to come back later. When we entered the house we were appalled by the filth. There were clumps of dog hair all over the living room floor, there were crumbs on the kitchen counters, hair in the bathroom sink, fists full of hair on one of the beds and the master bedroom had a dirty comforter on it and the sheets also had hairs in it. I cleaned for 2 hours while holding back tears and even then I didn't feel like it was clean enough because there was food splattered on the living room walls, green mold around the bathroom faucets...cannot express how dirty the house was. The rooms were overrun by random chairs (one was to cover up a huge hole in the wall). The bedrooms were stripped down to the boxspring with the exception of the one bed with a single fitted sheet (with hairs on it) and the master bed was made - though my husband and I bought our own sheets and luckily brought our own comforter to use because the ones on the bed were dirty (stained and hairs all over). The sheets I had brought with us were used to cover the living room couches to at least be able to sit on them without being completely grossed out. There were 2 chairs in the living room but one was covered in sand so had to vacuum that as well. The outdoors was not maintained, there was no hammock and the chairs around the "fire pit" were broken and filthy. Absolutely no upkeep has been done to this property. My husband and I wanted to rent a house this year so we could cook dinners there and hang out at night, not spend all of our money going out to eat. Unfortunately the house, inside and outside, were so disgusting that as soon as we woke up we headed out, came back to change after the beach and then ate out everynight. Did not even make coffee in the coffeepot because it looked like it had never been cleaned. The owner of this property did not try to rectify the fact that the house was unclean when we arrived as I texted her but she did not acknowledge my concerns. My husband tried calling her but of course she did not answer. Very disappointing experience. Also, the décor of the house has a serious identity crisis; pictures, curtain and furniture all were mismatched, old and uncomfortable. The owner clearly did not invest any time or money or care into this property.

Owner's Response: Michelle, I am not sure if you reviewed the correct property. I take great pride in my home and would not present it in any other way. Before your stay I purchased 2 brand new couches, one in red and the other grey with a new pull out sofa. I also purchased a new king size tempurpedic mattress for the master bedroom. The pictures are certainly accurate, I took them myself. I would never let mold to enter the home especially around a bathroom sink. I did check the chairs around the fire it and out of the 8 two were damaged on the back. The yard I have professionally done by a local landscaper who is often hard to book because of their skills. The house living room and bathroom were also freshly painted so to say I don't do any upkeep was surprising. As for the kitchen the fridge is brand new but the stove is older but clean and works great. I apologize if this is your interpretation but I have 6 family's that return every year and have contacted them and they assured me they are in love with the property and one wanted to buy it. Although I always appreciate a review I do wish that things could have been resolved with a phone call that I have no record of? York Beach is a fun family vacation and being a parent of 4 children I know how precious family time is. I've been living in york beach for 14 years and rent my property so others can enjoy this beautiful peaceful place. Sincerely Kristin Tully
