Guestbook comments from the owner

This place was wonderful! The location was great. Everything we really wanted for our vacation was within walking distance, it made it very convenient. We loved the walks on the beach, and the beautiful sunsets. It was our anniversary and vacation wrapped into one. The cottage is very cozy and romantic. Definitely will be back. It gets top ratings from us. We loved it. Thank you.

Girls Trip

The cottage was really very cute and clean. The porch with the peek-a-boo view of the Gulf was great. John's Pass is right across the street so that is very convenient. We didn't have to go anywhere. However, we were really wanting to be closer to the beach. The beach is within walking distance but it is quite a distance when carrying all of the necessities to the beach to be able to enjoy the day. It's not close enough that you want to walk back and forth. At least it wasn't for us. The peek-a-boo view is just that......very tiny little view between buildings and trees. And the cleaning lady came by to ask us how early we would be out on our last day because she really liked to get it done as early as possible so that she had the rest of her day to do her thing. Not really what you want to hear when you've paid for your vacation and should not feel rushed to get out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review for the Cottage by the Pass. I'm sorry you felt as though you could only leave a 3-star review, for reasons that seem to be perception-type items, all of which are clearly described in our property listing, photos and/or the rental agreement. We clearly explain that there is only a "peek a boo" view of the Gulf in our listing, as well as a clear explanation of the distance to the Gulf when walking. Many others have found the combination of the low rate and the proximity to the beach and other activities to be an excellent value. As for the cleaning person asking you when you were going to vacate, one must understand that in order to assure that the cottage is ready for the next incoming guest it takes a significant amount of time to clean and prepare. Our check-out time is clearly shown on the rental agreement as 10:00am. Our cleaning team happened to have this property as first on the list for the day and were there promptly at 10am. When a guest does not make prior arrangements for a late check out, it has the potential to send the cleaning team's schedule into disarray as this is not the only place they have to clean on any given day. I'm terribly sorry you felt pressure to leave, and in no way would I wish a guest to feel uneasy about departing. If you would have liked a later check out time I would have been happy to make the arrangements for you.

The apartment is 1/2 block off the beach entrance which is convenient for a short walk. Proximity to the boardwalk was nice as well

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the 2nd floor studio in mid April and had a wonderful time. The location was perfect! There were many restaurants, bars and gift shops within easy walking distance.

I really can't add much more than others have said. If you are looking for a great vacation spot, do not hesitate to choose this place!

What a delightful place for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to write a good review for this place for fear that it won't be available for us when we went to go but alas I must! We spent a week in the upstairs studio of the cottage and will definitely be going back. The place was immaculately clean with a large modern and fully stocked kitchen including stove, oven, microwave and full refrigerator. The queen bed was very comfortable. There was also a convenient large walk in closet to store luggage and hang clothes and there was also a washer and dryer which came in really handy. The cottage is stocked with so many little extras and it seems like the owners have thought of everything you could possibly need during your stay. Every morning and evening we enjoyed the large private deck. The location couldn't be better as it is right across from the beginning of John's Pass and only a short walk to the path to the beach in the back of the cottage. The bar directly across the street has live music every day and night and they had some really decent musicians and it was great to be able to just go across the street and hang out. You can hear the music from the cottage but it was not intrusive at all. The owner, Cheri and her husband Mike could not have been nicer and more helpful and they always responded with any questions immediately. It was obvious to us that they really enjoy making sure their guests have everything they need and enjoy their stay and will go out of their way to help you if need anything.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to let others know what a special place the cottage really is. While it is quite the popular spot, I'm hoping you will be able to come back soon for another visit. I have many repeat guests, and I hope they keep coming back to visit. We really do enjoy having the cottage and we always try to do whatever we can to make sure our guests have a pleasant visit.
