cute cottage, convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a lovely time at this property. It is obviously newly renovated (and most of the surrounding cottages seem to be in differing stages of renovation, themselves), and EXTREMELY convenient to the beach. The promised bed linens were conveniently provided in a laundry basket, the kitchen was well outfitted and the appliances were excellent, the bathrooms were obviously new and very clean. Our initial impression, however, was a little "iffy" as we could not access the lock box to retrieve the key to get in (communication issue--wrong key code was sent) and cell phone reception is VERY poor outside the cabin, so we had difficulty contacting Brenna to inform her of our difficulties. To compound it, the building across the street had obviously had a recent fire and was boarded up, and the cottage next door was very overgrown with what appeared to be an abandoned car in the driveway (covered in weeds), and mosquitoes were attacking us! When we finally entered the cottage, the inside was stiflingly hot. We found the promised air conditioner--on the floor in the bedroom closet, not hooked up. So, off to Walmart we went for a fan, since we could not fit the air conditioner unit into any obvious window, and no one was available to install it for 24 hours. The next day things were better, and the neighbors showed up to cut their grass (it wasn't a meth house after all-phew!), and as we walked around the neighborhood we discovered that it is definitely an area undergoing revitalization. I would guess in 3 years or so the area is going to be awesome! The beach is beautiful, there are quaint shops and restaurants within walking distance, and a good grocery store (ValuMart) within 7 minutes and a Walmart within 20 minutes away. I suggest you double check all your information with the realtor prior to leaving, as there seemed to be multiple "lost emails" that I never received with the initial house information and then the updated information. (However, the emails with the financial particulars seemed to reach me without any problems). So, overall, the cottage itself is in excellent condition and I would highly recommend it--but it had the misfortune to be located next to unkempt properties which initially reflected negatively upon it since we had never been to the area before and were totally unfamiliar with what to expect. (Along with some communication issues which eventually were resolved, but took time).

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your detailed review. For those that are familiar with Crystal Beach, this area has been undergoing revitalization for over the last 5 years, so our community thanks you for noticing the hard work everyone has been putting into their cottages! When booking directly through HomeAway (as you did), your inbox does get a tad overloaded with payment emails - they are system generated. My office sends a confirmation upon booking and arrival information one month prior. My apologies if between the two, it seems a bit much. We typically wait to install our air units when nighttime temperatures raise. We were still at 10C at night, but thankfully it was up and running for your second night and I hope it wasn't too inconvenient. Glad you otherwise enjoyed your trip and I hope you were able to make some fantastic memories with your family.
