Owner's Response: Jeanmarie, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry the home did not meet your needs and apologize for fire ants in the yard. Pest control was dispatched to the property and is now on regular quarterly service; bugs are no longer an issue. We understand you found the bunk beds to be hard and the outdoor folding chairs unsatisfactory. As discussed during your stay, each of our homes are individually owned and furnished per the homeowner's desires and preferences. Mattress toppers had been placed on each of the twin mattresses. We hope future guest will find this useful.

Very Disappointed!

  • 1 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a 3-night stay the "Cottage By The Sea". There were 2 other couples with us and unfortunately we had a disappointing stay. Below is a list of things that need IMMEDIATE ATTENTION.

1) BEDS. All the beds in the house are TERRIBLE. This includes the bunk beds. It feels like you're sleeping on cement. We called the emergency phone number the minute we checked in to notify the manager of our dissatisfaction. Unfortunately nothing was done to make our stay pleasant. When I go on vacation, I expect to get a really good night's sleep. We know some people prefer firm beds, but these beds were so "firm" it was comical. If you put a sheet on the deck outside it would feel similar to the mattresses. None of us had ever experienced anything like it before. The running joke of the weekend was the granite countertop would have been more comfortable than the mattress. The "mattresses" on the bunk beds were actually pieces of foam glued to plywood. You can feel the slats beneath you when you lay down.

2) WASHING MACHINE. After doing one load of laundry, the washing machine stopped working. Again, we called the emergency phone number and were told that someone would come out to fix it. Again, nothing was done to make our stay more pleasant. Needless to say, we all returned from vacation with bags & bags of dirty laundry.

3) KITCHEN. We needed to bake food during our stay, but there were NO cookie sheets, NO baking pans, NO hot pads and NO trivets. All these items are quite essential when you're away from home and trying to cook meals. Also, there weren't any cleaning products either ... not even an all-purpose cleaning spray to wipe down the counter tops.

4) VACUUM CLEANER & BROOM. There were several times throughout our stay when we needed to clean up the floors. A vacuum cleaner and broom/dust pan would have definitely come in handy, but they are not furnished

We understand that things happen, and things can be forgotten when preparing a home to be rented, but it's all in how you respond. We received no response besides someone bringing in a couple of bags of towels because the washing machine broke after the first load. The manager/owner has completely ignored our calls and emails.

Bottom line ... Don't waste your time or money on "Cottage By The Sea".

Extremely disappointed

Too many ants

  • 3 of 5

The unit is nice however it needs the services of an exterminator. We had issues with ants during the stay.

Also there were no mattresses in the front bedroom only box springs - some of our family had to sleep on the sofas in the great room partly because of this issue and a bad ant infestation in that room as well.
