The location of this small but quaint adorable cottage cannot be beat! Easy parking, short walks to reach beach, pools and Seaside town center. It has everything one (or two!) needs -- small fridge, cooktop, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, washer and dryer, cute front porch with lovely chairs on which to relax, an outdoor shower, and optional "resort" facilities. <br />
I would urge the owner(s) to replace the three main upholstered furniture pieces --bed, loveseat and chair -- as they are very worn aesthetically as well as for comfort . Additionally, the shower curtain needs to be changed out. It is not long enough, causing it to blow into you while showering, (something which is not enjoyable) and water rolls out onto the wood flooring, so I had to be diligent about keeping a thick towel on the floor to sop up the water; otherwise, the floor would be soaked upon exiting the shower and the wood floor is being damaged in the process. Also, there were light bulbs missing in two of only three small bathroom lights, making it difficult to see yourself in the mirror once the sun set. Finally, the bedroom's french doors do not work properly, rendering it near impossible to utilize the cute little balcony without wrestling with the doors to open and close them. These small inexpensive fixes would be worthwhile. One last recommendation to potential renters...Read immediately and thoroughly your confirmation emails, as they contain important and time-sensitive information regarding obtaining pool/fitness room passes and beach wristbands, all required to utilize this fabulous "resort". Bottom line, even with the minor irritations listed above, I would definitely rent this cottage again. And this is perhaps why these fixes haven't been done, because ... Location, location, location!
Nice little getaway.
This was a nice place and just right for us. Just my wife and I. The property is small, but good enough for a couple just wanting to rest and have a place to sleep between beach trips and meals. It really was a nice place and I'd go back.
We only had a couple of minor problems. The door to the balcony was stuck and it took the manager a day to get there and open it for us. Apparently it doesn't get used very often. But we wanted to drink coffee on the balcony. Second, the property manager gave us the wrong beach access code twice. We got the correct code from some other guests.
We loved the location. We were able to walk to the restaurants, beach, stores, pool and gym. The property states that we would have access to 3 pools, but the property manager could not give us a map to the 3 pools. We did get directions emailed to one of the pools. The property is advertised as having a oven, but when we arrived we found only a very small countertop oven. The shower curtain does not prevent water from leaking out onto the wood floor in the bathroom and the floor in there is warped. A shower door would prevent the floor from further damage. Only one light worked in the bathroom and we could not find any replacement bulbs. We did have a great vacation and always enjoy our time in Seaside.
Thank you for your review, Deanna! We adjusted our unit notes to be more specific about it being a toaster oven in the home, and we will soon be changing out the shower curtain for a longer one. Any dead light bulbs have been replaced. We hope to see you again!
This property is in a great location, close to the beach and shops/restaurants. The one comment I'd pass on to the owner/manager is that the bed is not comfortable.
Location can’t be beat!
Perfect little weekend get away for 2! Close to beach and Seaside dining and shopping. Clean and comfy!!!
This cottage is in such an amazing location! We loved the quick easy beach access and equally quick access to the town square! The owner of the main house was actually there our last couple of days and was so nice and made sure everything was good with our accommodations! Definitely a smaller space but perfect for a romantic get away!
