Great location but too many problems

  • 2 of 5

Whithaven 1 is in a great location on Atlantic Beach. There is a terrific little restaurant 150 meters away, and the ocean view off the back deck is fantastic. Inside, the house was remarkably unclean. We found numerous bugs in the kitchen, so any food had to be stored in the refrigerator or microwave. There was a gross greenish liquid in the sliding glass door tracks, both upstairs and downstairs. The cable and WIFI did not work the first two days. Worst of all, the owner and property manager ruined my birthday dinner. As we were having our main course at a local restaurant, the property manager called to say we must go home to let in the cable repair guy. Why is this my problem? The cable guy told us that the property owner made the cable repair appointment at 9am, yet they called us with no notice at 5:30pm. It was very poor coordination between owner and property manager, at my expense. This property has so much potential, but I would not stay there again until the house gets a thorough cleaning, a coat of paint, and insect extermination. On the upside, the back deck is brand new and beautiful.

The property and location is great. It desperately needs a deep clean, I have pictures of the filthy vents, dirty silverware drawers, goo dripping on the back of the stove, pot holder full of dough of some kind. I washed all the coffee cups and glassware prior to using it. Some had been put away dirty. I did report this to the office.

I have pictures if you want, I did send them to the office.

The house was just as advertised with the exception that the television system did not work.

  • 2 of 5

The house was very dirty. We called the real estate agent about the TV and the fact that the beach access was blocked by construction due to them working on beach erosion. So we could

Not get to the beach via the property also the construction equipment ran entirely all night so there was a constant beeping when they backed up and rumbling when they moved forward. The real estate agent stopped answering the phone immediately although we called multiple times and texted. We liked the house but would encourage folks to fully vet the real estate management company. They were not professional and very unresponsive

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying Jennifer. I'm sorry you had issues and I do apologize for the lack of timely response, however you and I did speak, text and email several times prior to your stay, throughout your stay and even following your stay, so I am not quite sure what you are referring to. Whatever it is, I again, apologize and hope you visit again. Especially when they aren't dredging the channel to re nourish the beaches. (the construction)

Great place at a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a two week stay this month at Whithaven 2. The place was just as described with bright colors everywhere and all the amenities needed. The beach was great! The location was perfect. Walked to four different restaurants as well as the bar at the end of the pier.

The only issue we had was figuring out how to run the main TV. (I know, who goes to the beach for that?? but it was the two weeks the Olympics were on.) Finally figured out that it was necessary to hold the batteries in the remote very tightly before it would work. A summary sheet on how to run the DVD player and TV, etc also would have been nice.

The overall stay was great! Air-conditioned parking under the cottage for the car was a bonus.

Will definitely plan to return with more folks next time.
