We had a great time at Ocean Lakes in this adorable cottage! We plan on coming back next year.
2nd Time at this House
The property manager is wonderful to work with! The property is exactly as shown in the pictures. It’s a perfect size for my family, which includes a teenager and 2 toddlers.
It was ok, probably will not rent again.
The cottage rooms are small. The bunk bedroom is misleading, it’s more of a closet. No room for luggage or clothes. Our shower head was broken upon arrival & I notified property mgmt. I was told they would be over to replace it. No one ever showed up. My husband zip tied it together so we could use it. The floors are in need of repair & a good cleaning. It is in a great location to the beach! However don’t try to come in at cruising time cause you can’t park your car with all the golf cart traffic. The cottage served its purpose but I was expecting more cause of the pictures.
Lizard Lick Tiny House
The toilet was stopped up for 4 days, bugs and a lizard were seen. The property manager was AMAZING to talk to. She truly was very helpful and kind. House was much smaller than anticipated. Closet with built in bunks is an excellent use of space but should be classed as a bunk room, not a bedroom.
I cleaned the kitchen, hall and living room flooring. Hands and knees scrubbed it because our feet were black after walking on it and it was all very sticky. Cleaned up well though and you're in good shape now. I would bring this to cleaning personnel attention. They have not been doing a great job fyi.
Golf cart was an excellent addition to the property.
We love Ocean Lakes and the people there and made the absolute best of our week there. It was a fun vacation.
Thank you so much for the compliment!! I really appreciate that but I’m so disappointed to hear you were so dissatisfied with the home as most all of our guest LOVE this home. I agree, it isn’t huge by any means, and the homeowners prefer 6 people at the most to stay here. The bunk room, which is what we refer to it as, is small...that’s correct. It is only for sleeping quarters. And I certainly addressed the cleanliness of the floor with the housekeepers and they had used something different that week that disagreed with the flooring and must have caused stickiness. That won’t happen again:) They are excellent cleaners and we have great confidence in their abilities.
We have all of our homes sprayed once a month for pest control, and because ocean lakes is on the ocean palmetto bugs are as common as crickets here at the beach! Occasionally, because the homes proximity to the ocean, something could slip in the door although it is rare. And I’m sorry it happened while you were there! And the toilet issue was terribly unfortunate too as a previous guest had put a plastic bottle in the toilet and caused all the issues. I’m glad we were able to get it resolved for you and apolgize it took the plumber longer than normal to get there. He was inundated with calls from the holiday.
We appreciate your communication and hope you can come back again one day and have an issue free week as is a usual stay!🏖� Thank you again and take care:)
Beach, Family, and Fun in a lovely seaside cottage
Great beach cottage feel, clean, comfortable, and a short walk to the beach and other activities such as shuffleboard, cornhole, and basketball. Loved having the use of the golf cart, but with most activities so close, it wasn't a necessity. The home is decorated with a seaside theme - many pieces are whimsical and we loved making new discoveries as we relaxed in the evenings. I hope we can make it back in the future. Thanks to the Smileys for the use of their Ocean Lakes home and to Cindy for making us feel so welcome.
Thank you so very much Mary!! What a pleasant and sweet guest you were and we truly look forward to having you back as soon as you can! Thank you again!!
Cute cozy house with amazing porch
We totally lucked out on renting this cozy house for Memorial Day weekend and my daughters birthday. The kids loved that all the main facilities and beach were in walking distance and the adults loved the massive porch we spent a majority of time there! Rocking chairs and plenty of seating, we had meals out there, coffee in the morning and drinks in the evening! Coordinating checking in was seamless and easy. All around such a pleasant experience plus a MAJOR bonus for the included golf cart!
