Reviewer Comments:

This was perhaps our 7th time to stay at a Silver Sands Vacation Rentals Property during a a trip to Port-A, our favorite getaway spot. Our cottage was, as usual, super clean, super nice and in a great location for peace and solitude away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday world. We have come to expect (and we always receive), a perfect experience when booking a stay with Silver Sands. A perfect 10 experience... again!

Terrible Bed and AC Unit stopped working

Reviewer Comments:

The full bed in the bunk bed room is not a real mattress. It is a very thin futon mattress, which was extremely uncomfortable. You could feel all the bars underneath. I was willing to just deal with it, but then in the middle of the night the window AC unit in that room stopped working! My husband and I had to migrate to the living room just to get a couple hours of sleep! Not exactly what you want to have to deal with on your vacation. After that I noticed that all the other units have been updated except that one. The bunk bed room is basically not usable for sleeping. Also, it is fine if there isn't a dishwasher, but you should at least have a drying rack.

Definitely won't stay here again

  • 1 of 5

The property was not ready when we arrived, in spite of an email to the property manager notifying them of a late night arrival, and a subsequent phone call the morning of our arrival to confirm. The unit had not been cleaned and was in a state of disarray. We had to call the emergency number the night we arrived just to get the unit cleaned. The maid service was very helpful, but the property manager was never heard from for the rest of our week long stay.

The window AC units were barely functional in July 2016. They ran all the time and made tons of noise and filled the place with a musty smell, but cooling was not really their strong suit.

There are problems with the description of the property on VRBO that constitute false advertising. For example the listing says there is a dishwasher, but there isn't. The beds listed are also incorrect -- there is one queen bed that entirely fills one bedroom, twin bunk beds in the second bedroom, and a futon in the living room. There were also precious few linens in the unit, including no kitchen linens at all until we asked the maid service to bring us some.

The overall cleanliness of the unit left much to be desired. The refrigerator was rusted and dirty looking, the walls are stained, etc.

We like Port A and have been several times; there are much nicer places to stay for the money than this one.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to post your review and feedback about your experience at Gulfshore Cottage. I want to begin by apologizing for your bad experience at one of our properties. As a management company we stride ourselves on making sure the guest is completely taken care of during his/her stay. We take full responsibility for the uncleaned property upon your arrival. It was an oversight on our housekeeper and she was extremely sorry for this. The minute you called the emergency line we sent a crew over to make sure the house was cleaned. This home does not have central AC; however, there are three window units to cool an 800 square foot home. We have never had complaints about the cooling or heating at this property. We advertise correctly for this unit. We advertise as having a queen size bed with a bunk bed. I am sorry you were not happy with your stay at Gulfshore Cottage. I would like to extend a discount on your next stay to Port A. Again, thank you for taking the time to post your review-Property Manager!

Reviewer Comments:

Upon arrival the house had a very moldy smell. We followed the Instructions in reference to the use of the Window units hoping to air out the house. We determined that there was mold in the master bedroom AC unit, creating the smell. Two wonderful ladies came out to the house and cleaned the unit. The rest if the stay was enjoyable. The deck and yard really sell this house, espcially if you have dogs. The bed sheets were a little rough, like cheap hotel sheets. On our last day we discovered roaches under the kitchen sink. The neighboor told us the prior renter shortened his stay due to bug issues. Yes there were a few issues and I feel for the money spent it should have been a lot nicer and better kept but it certaintly did not ruin our trip. The house was up for sale so doubt well be staying here again.

Reviewer Comments:

Great location to the restaurants and beach. Fenced-in backyard was a bonus and glad we didn't have to board our dogs. Neighbors were nice enough. Other than a couple of dead bugs and a TV that didn't work, we loved our stay. Will definitely rent from Silver Sands in the years to come.
