Nice stay, good value

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the house, it was larger than expected and nicely equipped with comfortable areas to sit out both inside and out. Unfortunately the plumbing rendered one of the bathrooms unusable when we arrived, but thankfully there were two, and the issue was addressed quickly by the owners. The beds are not the most comfortable, but the location and size of the house made for a nice stay and a good overall value.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect location, very close to beaches, food, shopping and entertainment. The property manager was easy to work with and quick to respond. We enjoyed our stay so much that we would definitely book this same location again (actually wanted to for Labor day weekend but it was already booked). Very spacious and clean, fully stocked with everyday needs, and the check-in/out was super easy. We had 5 people for this trip (2 adults, 3 children) but could have easily had 2-3 more people comfortably. The backyard was very nice and private, we sat around the fire pit every evening/night. Deposit was returned promptly upon check-out.

Plenty of space and out of the way place, still convenient to local attractions

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in early August for a wedding shower. The place was nice, with plenty of room and met our needs. It was a short walk to get coffee in the morning and the lake was just beyond that. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others. This was our first VRBO experience.

A great getaway!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying at this cottage. We were close to the beach, but had lots of privacy. We loved the set up of the house. We were able to stay up late and play games in the far living area away from the master bedroom where we had a toddler sleeping. We took advantage of the fire pit out back one night for smores. We also cooked out using the smoker grill. We would stay here again if ever back in the area.

Was a nice house convenient to where we went

  • 3 of 5

WE ENJOYED OUR STAY VERY MUCH. Unfortunately we were unable to have fire due to sewage smell outside and infested with mosquitoes. We would however probably stay there again and take an outside fogger next time.
