This is a great place and is our new Florida vacation home !
This is a great place and is our new Florida vacation home !
It was even better than what we had read or seen on the web site. The place was cute and comfortable. We had everything we wanted for our stay and both the property management staff and the owners made us feel right at home ! My wife actually wrote a nice poem on our stay and we placed it in a frame for the owners to keep at the house. We will definitely be coming back and are already looking forward to our next vacation.

The Cottage rocks !!

We just got back from our 1 month stay at The Cottage in Bradenton. We had such a great time. The house is so cute & everything you need is right there. We spent a lot of time in the jacuzzi & pool. Plus our dog loved the yard complete with squirrels & geckos to chase. I would recommend this house to anyone. It is very convenient to shopping and about 15-20 minutes to great beaches.

Nice home but lacking hospitality
Nice home but lacking hospitality
We stayed at this vacation rental from the end of November to the end of December. The home, pool and jacuzzi were very nice but the customer service however was lacking. The owner would show up unannounced after being asked to give a courtesy call to make sure we were not using the pool when he arrived. The day of our departure the doorbell began to ring shortly after 9am even though checkout time was 10am. The owners, property manager and 2 others went into the home after we still had some things to remove from the property. I realize this was close to the holidays but they could have been a little more courteous and respectful of our time, giving the amount of income generated from our stay. We have stayed in numerous vacation rental properties in the past and never encountered these types of issues. I think the property mgr/owners could prosper in this industry with better customer appreciation and service.

Owner response: We did respect their wishes not to be on-site without a prior call or notification during their entire stay. This issue was only from the day of check-out. We communicate to all guests that check-out is 10 AM and there are no exceptions. This is on our web sites, our forms, and all email correspondence. We had guests checking in later that afternoon - so with a 10 AM check-out and a 3 PM check-in, that only gives us roughly 5 hours to prepare the vacation home for the next guests. Our cleaning crew is scheduled to arrive at the vacation home at 9 AM on check-out day and begin work "outside" if the guests are still finishing loading their car, etc. However for this particular guest, they were no where near to being ready for checking out - at 9 AM as they had not even started to pack. We spoke with the Husband - who was not there at the time and gave them until 11 AM, which was what he asked for. He said they would be out no later than 11 AM. Our cleaning crew and now the owners came back at 11:30 AM and the guests were still no way near being able to leave the house. At this time, we are now getting very anxious. The next guests would be checking in within just a few hours and the current guests were potentially several hours from being able to leave. So - we asked if we could help and they said ok. The cleaning crew and the owners then assisted the guests in packing, getting their 2 dogs ready, packing up the kitchen and groceries, loading their car, etc. In the end, the previous guests left the vacation home (with our assistance) by 1:30 PM. This of course left us only 1 hour or so to clean and prepare the entire house. So - we actually find it quite offensive that this "guest" would comment negatively on their stay due to their lack of respect in checking out for the arrival of our next guests. We actually paid for the next guests dinner, so we could have ample time to prepare the house for their stay. The next guests were able to check-in around 6 PM that day. We should have charged the previous guests an additional fee for the extra costs we had to incur.
