Nice enough house/location but lots of inconveniences!

  • 3 of 5

The house and the location were just fine. The owner was also very responsive to our MANY contacts with her regarding questions or concerns we encountered during our two week stay. That being said, we encountered SO MANY situations which required owner-intervention over the course of two weeks, it really took away from the overall enjoyment of our vacation. I have stayed on St George Island in The Planation 12-15x over the past 20 years and in almost all of those instances, I don't recall having to contact the owner even once, so this was really over the top!

I took my 88 year old mother down for two weeks. I was there the first 9 days and my sister overlapped with me and stayed for week two. I had to contact the owner almost every day during my week regarding some sort of issue/question with the house, some days more than once. Many of these communications could have easily been avoided had the owner been more communicative with us or done a better job of getting the house ready for us before we arrived. Just lots and lots of little things...can't get the DVD player to work and I'm told to check to make sure a prior tenant didn't fiddle with the wiring. Why am *I* checking to make sure the devices in the house are functional? After 45 minutes of batting emails back and forth, it was determined that the required TV remote was elsewhere in the house and the batteries in both DVD remotes were dead. Again, little things, but why are WE fiddling with these on our vacation? The list goes on...upstairs lighting in the spacious living room which is quite confusing with no explanation as to which switches operate which devices. The two main lamps weren't even plugged in and the plugs were hidden under a couch, leading to further confusion. A dead scorpion, a live cockroach and a live mouse in the house...yuck! 88 year old mother having to use a barely functional 1950s-60s hand crank can opener because the electric one is hidden under the sink. Temperature controls on two levels but no explanation of this. It took us 3-4 days to find out why we were roasting at night because no A/C turned on in the bedrooms. The coup de grace was the septic system plugging up during my mother's last few days of vacation. The owner was on this promptly but my sis/mother were not able to flush toilets and were driving to a gas station for toilets for 24 hours. Overall, not the hassle-free experience we were used to and hoping for. Dave Utterback, LaCrosse, WI

We had a great time. The cottage has such character. We loved it! Very clean. The location with the beach was perfect and very quiet and peaceful. Thank you for sharing your place.

Not a good experience.

  • 1 of 5

There were so many spiders inside the house and out. We slept with the lights on every night to keep them at bay. My son and his wife went home early because they had the baby with them. The owners offered to have someone come and spray but we were afraid that it would just flush them out. Also, the air conditioning went out. It was repaired the next afternoon.

Christmas at The Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented The Cottage from Christmas to New Years Day and enjoyed it immensely. If you are looking for granite countertops and sparkly new appliances, keep going. If you are looking for a comfy, cozy retro house steps from the beach, you've found it. Great views from nearly every room and sunrise/sunset/water views from the upstairs. Less than 2 minute walk to the beach. A couple of minor glitches were handled quickly. We will be back.

A fantastic home in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Great home In great location. Everything was just as described (or better!) and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely, unique home away from home. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend to others. The beach is so close by that you don't mind the house not being "beach front" (it took us literally 2 minutes to walk to beach) and the house itself is so spacious and comfortable that you will want to spend as much time there as you do down at the water!
