Nice property, bad property management company

  • 2 of 5
The view was fantastic, the beach was good, and the walks scenic. I would suggest to the owners, however, that you change your management company. First issue was that the house had a foul smell like it had not been opened or aired out in several months. The smell hit you like a ton of bricks upon entry and was not any better after 3 days. I also own a cottage and am used to some degree of "cottage smell", however, this was almost unbearable, to the point I was wondering about a mold problem and when you are staying there with small children that is concerning to say the least. Second, the rules and regulations of this management company were unlike any I have ever delt with when renting homes before. To point out just a couple of "rules", they expected you to finsh making your own beds and competely do your own linens and towels prior to leaving. There was only two rolls of toilet paper provied and absolutely no flexability as to the check-in & check-out time. I am sorry to say that despite the property itself being very nice and the view being fantastic, I would not recommend this unless the owners were to change their property management company.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear you enjoyed the property! And we are sorry to hear that you had issues with our management company. We do have a few points of clarification to make:
Yes, we do ask renters to finish making beds upon arrival. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (which inspects and licenses all vacation rentals in Wisconsin) has recommended that we ready the beds with the fitted sheet and pillowcases but leave the top sheet and blankets for guests to finish making beds. If we completely made beds, all of our properties would be subject to random inspections (and if done incorrectly, fines) by the state to ensure the correct number of inches from the headboard to the fold of the sheet. We feel we are providing excellent service to guests by providing professionally-laundered sheets at our properties at no additional charge, even though guests must finish making the beds themselves.
Yes, we do ask guests to wash towels upon their departure. We again feel we are providing an excellent service to guests by providing towels at no additional charge, unlike other management companies that require guests to provide their own towels or to rent towels at an additional fee. We do NOT ask guests to wash linens, since, as stated above, we send those out to be professionally laundered.
We do only provide a starter supply of bath tissue (generally one roll per bathroom). This is fairly standard in vacation rentals.
We do allow changes to check in/check out times outside of peak season. This guest stayed during shoulder season but apparently did not request an early check in or late check out, which we would have been happy to grant. We can only guarantee these changes within 5 days of the stay due to the possibility of last minute rentals and therefore last minute changes to our housekeeping schedule.
We are sorry to hear the house had a foul smell upon arrival. Had these guests contacted us, we would have been happy to help try to address the issue during their stay.
All of our policies are found in our Rental Agreement which we ask every guest to review and agree to prior to their stay. It is unfortunate that this guest found our policies so unpalatable. We believe we provide a more convenient guest experience than comparable management companies in our area, and we receive very few complaints from our guests regarding our policies.
Thanks for your taking the time to review Beech House!

Perfect home for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic week at this wonderful beach cottage. It had everything we needed and more. It is conveniently located to everything in the area. We spent most of our time outside, even though the water was still a bit too chilly to swim. We enjoyed playing in the sand and walking along the beach. The fire pit was excellent in the evenings.. I think it was everybody's favorite activity to sit around the fire and roast marshmallows and hot dogs listening to music.. The backyard was plenty big for my grandchildren to run around and play. The kids could even play on the beach while we sat outside in the yard, and we could keep an eye on them.. Inside the home are three good sized bedrooms.. Everybody had plenty of room.. The living room had plenty of seating and the views were spectacular.. The kitchen is large.. There is enough room for everybody to pitch in and help prepare meals.. There are plenty of dishes, silverware, pots and pans and cooking utensils..

We did a boat cruise at Sister Bay. The boat captain told us that the white pelicans had just migrated to the area about 3 years ago. We woke up one morning, and the bay was full of white pelicans, so we got to see them up close.. We even saw deer running along the beach early one morning.. Wild turkeys were everywhere..

I am a bit disabled.. There are steps going into the house and the dining room and sun room are lower than the rest of the house.. I didn't have any problems at all getting around. The half bath has a taller toilet and grab bars, but the other upstairs full bath does not. The tub shower combination was not a problem for me. The tub is low enough that I was able to get in and out without any trouble. The stairs down to the basement were a bit of a challenge, but I did manage to make it up and down.. I just let my husband and the kids take the laundry up and down the stairs.. The beach was also lower than the yard.. There are rock steps near the fire pit, but I was a bit uneasy trying those.. Just to the right of the fire pit was the perfect place for me to get down to the beach with no problems.. My cane did, however, sink into the sand when I tried to walk along the beach in the water.. My 4 yr old grandson thought it was quite funny to watch Granny's cane get stuck in the sand..

This was a perfect choice for us.. The house is great..The beach is beautiful, as is the rest of the scenery..Very quiet and relaxing..
