good stay in spite of the weather
We had a good stay at the cottage in spite of the cold. Bob was helpful and apologetic about the weather which was beyond his control. It was a good respite from Iowa weather. It is quiet and away from the "touristy" traffic but close enough to enjoy whatever you wish to visit. I would recommend this cottage with its big fenced backyard.
Dirty and in need of TLC
The property could use some TLC. The couch and reclining chair looked like something found on the side of the road that someone else threw out. My wife and I went to pull the hide-a-bed out to watch TV in the living room and quickly put it back. It was filthy. The couch cushions were all stained and ripped up. We did not realize there was no heat and the temperature dropped into the low 40's. and we froze the first night. No extra blankets. The second night we found a couple of space heaters. We tried running both but would blow a breaker every time. There was leftover stuff in the refrigerator from the prior tenant, a sweatshirt in the bedroom closet and large cobwebs on the ceiling so we were not sure if the place was even cleaned. The Backyard was very large and fenced in, that was the best part since we had a dog, although all weeds and in need of mowing. We were only there for 3 nights so it served its purpose of a roof over our head. It reminded my wife of camping. On the positive note, the location was great and the check-in & out process was flexible and easy.
WOW, this is a shock to me, my maintenance crew has been
on the spot for every time. I can only think that they got the schedule for housekeeping and lawn care mixed up.
I did not hear from the tenants regarding the heaters, they are hard to miss. As far as the furniture, I have not had any complaints in the past, but definitely look into it.
Relaxing, quaint, and close to the beach. We really enjoyed our stay here. Thank you!
Cottage was clean, enjoyed the stay.
It's been 10 days passed the advertised 10 days to get our security reimbursement. I sent email to owner a week ago and no response. We would have giving more stars if it had not been for the security reimbursement issues. Still waiting on reimbursement.
The writer of this review is mistaken. Yes the refund was a little later than usual, however, I checked with the website that he booked through and they show he was refunded in mid july.
Dog friendly beach
We enjoyed our stay in Valino Beach. The beach is very dog friendly. We travel frequently and our dog always comes with us. Nice to have a nice backyard for the dog. We unfortunately did not use the hot tub as it was over 90 degrees most days. Place needs a little TLC but was fine for us. Nice neighborhood!!
Nice and clean 1-bedroom, convenient walk to the beach, central to St. Augustine, and a nice drive up the coast to Amelia Island. Just what we were looking for. Basically, much like being home.
