Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Adrienne, Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your beach

home, it was perfect. We really enjoyed the pool area, the house was so

clean and well stocked but I think the use of the golf cart was the most

fun! Looking forward to next year, thank you again. It was a pleasure working with you.

Wonderful Family Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

Adrienne Howard was genuinely interested in making our stay the best it could be with many helpful suggestions. The property was as described and clean with a fun and comfortable decor. Each bedroom had a full bath, comfortable beds and extra linens and blankets. All TVs were smart TVs which allowed me to leave the ROKU at home. WiFi coverage was very good inside the unit but could be a bit spotty outside in the back. Our grandsons absolutely loved the pool while we thoroughly enjoyed the screened-in porch, especially in the morning with coffee. The property was very convenient to the beach, shopping and dining. In many cases we could take the golf cart to these types of locations. I would suggest avoiding Kroger around 6 pm on Saturday; I've never seen crowds that large. I assume it was due to the arrival of rental vacationers. This may have also been the situation at other grocery stores. Kroger handled the melee very well, it was just unexpected. All the necessary dishes and utensils were supplied. All the kitchen appliance appeared to be new. So much in fact that we had a little difficulty understanding how to us the microwave until we found the manuals for it and all the other appliances. The property's temperature control worked well. The property is located on a quiet street and we did not hear any noise from either of the neighbors. There were a lot of people at the beach but it did not feel crowded. There were concessions at the beach that rented chairs and umbrellas but it would be less expensive to buy a beach chair at Kroger, Walgreen's or CVS. The unit does not have any beach towels so we brought our own. The weather was wonderful with only one rainy day. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property for families.

Perfect in every way!!!😀😀😀

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Barefoot Contessa...was wonderful. The house is centrally located to everything you may need. The pool was wonderful....with lots of seating and it being screened in added privacy and kept the bugs out...if you decided to leave.....the house....the beach is a short walk away. The golf cart was an added bonus!!!!! My poodles loved everything too......we will definitely rent again. Adrienne made it a breeze. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Wonderful beach house! Even better the second time

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family and two dogs have enjoyed this vacation home in October for two years in a row. The house is beautiful and situated in a great, quiet location. Adrienne went above and beyond to ensure that we had a pleasant vacation. Can't wait to be back next year!

Good place to stay. Just one issue that can be fixed.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this pet friendly beach house. Many pet friendly places are not human friendly but this was a good one. The golf cart included was a bonus. The beach is very close and you can travel all the way to Cherry Grove on the golf cart. The location puts you near anything you need. The kitchen was well stocked and the screened in back porch kept all the bugs away so we could enjoy the outdoors. Adrienne stayed in contact with us before and during our stay when needed. We really booked the Barefoot Contessa for the pool. Unfortunately during our stay, the house gutters were clogged which created a waterfall that hit the side yard/landscaping that ran into the pool bringing dirt, mulch and rainwater. Even if it rained an hour or two, the water from the side yard also ran into the pool. We could not use the pool until Tuesday afternoon of our week because it was so dirty and had to wait until it was cleaned properly. I then had to create a barricade around the pool to preserve the pool for the rest of the week. I addressed the side yard grading, concrete slope and gutter issues with the homeowner. Adrienne was responsive to offer us a small break on the cost for our troubles. We live in the cold north so our one week away, not able to use the pool until half way through our stay was troubling. I do hope she can address the issues for future guests because it is a place people would return each year and I would not want them to experience a week like ours.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that your experience was less than perfect. I know that many of our guests travel from very far away for a week at the beach and we want there vacations to be worry free. The fall is our rainy season. In the south we get torrential downpours that can last for hours. We do have an outdoor pool so this can mean that dirt and other debris can end up in the pool. As soon as we heard there was an issue we called to have the pool cleaned. We certainly did our best to address the situation. We also provided the guest with a $200 refund for the inconvenience. While we do strive to make everything perfect, the weather is outside of my control. I know that this guest thinks that changing the landscape might address it -but we would need to remove all of the plants and dirt from around the pool to insure that nothing made it in. We will see if there is anything we can do to lessen the issue going forward, but in the 8 years we have had the house we have never had this complaint before. We will do our best to make sure we do not have it again!
