Rustic beach rental

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Our family of 6 had an enjoyable stay. The house was nice, but a bit more rustic than the photos online portray. The view is beautiful out the front- all you see is water! I do admit that I am probably quite critical as a reviewer as I am a VRBO owner myself who puts a lot of time and pride in my own rental to make it nice for my guests. The location is wonderful, right on the beach. The cottage is clean and very quaint with it's sloping floors towards the water and curtained doors. The kitchen has a mismatch of dishes, glasses & pans. The bathroom is very basic and very old fashioned. Although I do realize that stuff breaks, it was kind of annoying having to take the lid of the tank off every time you flushed to push down the flapper so the toilet didn't run continuously.The second bathroom is only accessible by going outside and entering through the locked door to the bathroom on the beach level. You are expected to clean this bathroom yourself when you leave as the cleaning service fee does not cover this. There was no internet available -contrary to what the listing said. This was one of the reasons why we picked this rental and was somewhat of a problem for my college age kids who were supposed to be emailing work back to college during our stay. We were able to find some unprotected signals from other beach houses while standing out on the beach. Also- the water taxi requests a week reservation and is $10/person both ways which really adds up if you have a large family. Parking is $3/day at the Marina. Having no reservation for the taxi was almost a vacation disaster for us, after calling we were able to get to the pier quickly before the driver had another obligation. Even if we had tried to manage this better we would not have been able since we were not informed about this or anything else with adequate lead time even though the taxi service has informed the owner multiple times of that need. Little surprises like this are not what you want to encounter on a relaxing vacation. Extra expenses are much better tolerated when you know about them before you are locked in with a reservation. We did not receive any information at all from the owner regarding our stay until 3 days before departure from home, including keys - something that is quite frustrating for individuals who like to plan. When information was requested via the email on the website it was initially poorly communicated and about a rental in another city.

The Perfect Get-Away (Repeat Renter!)

This beach house is a rare find...if you enjoy waking up to the sound of waves lapping against your get-away home, watching the sun rise from your own deck over the water, and having nothing to worry about except how large of a sand castle you can built that day, this beach house is the perfect place for you. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay - don't bother packing anything but bathing suits! My family stayed for a week over the holidays and had such a wonderful time, we are going back again already. It's the absolutely perfect place for young kids - there is so much nature to enjoy, it will keep them busy all day long. I have rented through VRBO on several occasions, but this beach house is my absolutely favorite find to date. The owners make renting a breeze, and are always available if any questions or issues arise. I can't recommend this home enough!

We totally enjoyed the whole experience on Little Gasparilla Island and renting this home (location, location, location). I keep telling everyone that I highly recommend 2 weeks on an island. This home is great for so many reasons. The ocean sound at night to lull you to sleep, the morning walks with our dogs on the beach, the fresh sea trout my husband caught and cooked for us, and plenty of rays to be soaked up. Every bit of stress left me! This vacation will be talked about for years. I hope that it can all be repeated next year. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
