Not very happy with Cottage, not what the advertisement stated "UPDATED"

  • 3 of 5

We arrived on Thursday, the satellite TV in bedroom wasn’t working and they couldn’t get it to work, we were ok with that because we still had the TV in the living room, we don’t watch TV, but like to leave it on for our two small four legged boys, by next morning the TV in the living room wasn’t working either, we called the management company they sent someone over to fix it, the young man was very nice and helpful.

The advertisement stated the cottage had recently been updated, the only updates we noticed was the paint, new bed, which was wonderful, new knobs on the cabinets, living room coffee, kitchen and end tables. The floors were filthy looked like they hadn’t been properly swept & mopped in weeks, maybe even months, I dropped an ice cube, picked it up and got a paper towel to wipe it up, the towel was black, there were ants all over, we saw a roach. The rug in the bathroom was filthy had been washed in weeks.

The A/C unit wasn’t large enough to cool the two small rooms, the living room was warm, we had to go out buy a fan just to get cool air to living area. They need to install ceiling fans, new flooring, update the shower, it’s way too small a large man couldn’t really take a shower. If they updated this cottage it would be really cute.

If they’re going to advertise “RECENTLY UPDATED” you expect it to be updated! We have a group of friends about 8 couples are going back in September, but I’m not sure we will be recommending these cottages.

From the outside it looks absolutely wonderful, but on the inside......

  • 2 of 5

Pulling up to the property it was really nice had a brand new fierce around the property. The fence was so new there were piles of sand at the front door I had to clean before we tracked it in. Then we got into the little 600sq ft of fun and noticed very quickly EVERYTHING WAS DIRTY!!! I had to sweep a pound of sand up upon arrival, sheets were stained, pillows had sand on them and couch was stained. The dishes in the cabinet still had dried food on them. Coffee pot is old and outdated and God only knows what was burned to the bottom of it. The "waterbugs" were everywhere had one get on me while I was in the bathroom. This would have been a great experience had it been clean but the over all feeling of yuck on everthimg you touched in there was too much!! I Think housekeeping totally dropped the ball on this place!!

Roach motel!

We're talking about water bugs! Huge, fast little suckers that know when to come out! Especially while trying to use the bathroom!

Clean and super cute!

  • 5 of 5

Rental office was accommodating. The house was just perfect in size and location, and a happy place for our dog! We were able to walk to many stores and restaurants and the beach was a quick drive away. Loved the little "neighborhood". Comfortable bedding and furniture. Would definitely stay there again!

Spanish Village

  • 3 of 5

It was clean, the bed was comfy. AC in good condition worked great maybe to good. The shower was very small and you could not tell that in the pictures. The proximity was perfect and being able to pull up directly in front of the door was very nice. The laundry was close and worked very well. The property is well maintained and super cute.

Cute Bungalow

  • 3 of 5

This bungalow was pretty efficient in that it did accommodate our family of 5 (3 teens and 2 adults) pretty well when it comes to sleeping arrangement. The big screen TV in the bedroom and smaller one in the kitchen was great for the kids at night. And the location right off the main strip for shopping was fabulous. Our only negative comment is that there was only one tiny bathroom with no fan and sharing it among 5 people was somewhat of struggle. Also the mirror in the bathroom is set too high above the sink. So if you’re short, you can barely see your face. I would suggest to the owners a full-length mirror attached to the bathroom door or in the open area where the extra pillows are stored. Also there were only 4 towels. So if you have a 5th person, I suggest bringing an extra set of towels along with beach towels. Other than that, it was a great little place to stay for our last minute getaway!
