Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family of three young kids, and we loved having enough room for everyone to spread out (more space = less arguing). The cottage is well-equipped and beautiful. I especially appreciated the outdoor shower right outside the door, so we could get all of the sand off of everyone before going back inside after a day at the beach. While the pool is definitely within about a sixty second walking distance, we recommend driving to the beach (about 3 minutes away, but driving allows you to haul a cooler, etc. better). Don't be confused by the fact that the public parking is on the side of the road--as long as you park where indicated and don't block the entrance, you'll be fine. The beach is secluded and far away from the hordes of folks staying at mega-condos. Jenny was also great about answering any questions that came up during our stay.

We had a great time overall, However there are a few things I would say It is listed to sleep six I would say there are three bedrooms but the 3rd bedroom has a pull out so putting two people who in our case were teenag boys was very hard we ended up getting a blow up mattress to put in that room wish there had Ben a bed and not a pull out but other than that we loved the pool and be so close to the beach. One others think I also wish they would spray for bug as the bugs were very bad . We did have a great time and loved all the prep that went in to our stay we really liked the guest book with all the suggested things to do.

Beach is not quite as accessible as description indicated. Other difference from description is only one pool on property not two as indicated.

Owner's Response: Hi Doug, Thank you for staying at this beautiful and cozy beach cottage! There are 2 pools in the complex, a smaller one closer to the entrance. We do let the guests know on the website that the Rookery is across the street from the beach, and sits about 2 blocks back. I'm sorry if there was any confusion. I hope you had a wonderful time! Best Regards, Jenny Anthony
