Exactly As Described!
"Check in was quick and easy! Cottage was exactly as described! Carmen was very welcoming, and gave us some places to visit that I did not know about during our stay! Awesome hostess! It was clean, and well maintained! The cottage was a little warm, it was 95-98 degrees during our stay, and no fans in the cottage! We did keep all windows open though, and it helped a little, but a fan would have been nice! The cottage location is in a residential area, and you can hear vehicles go by, but it gets quite after 9 pm (If you like to go to bed before that, buy ear-plugs and you will be fine). The first night me and my husband was there, we did hear a whole phone conversation late one night, since all windows in the cottage were opened, and you have to keep them open since the cottage has no ac or fan.
The cottage is also within walking distance to the beach, about a 10 minute walk! Also, if you have your own car, Carmen does provide you with a parking space in the back of the cottage, and you can also park in the front of the house, when you find a parking spot!
If you like to cook.... the cottage has dishes and pans, everything you need in the kitchen! Had a good time at this cottage, but my only suggestion would be to put up curtains in the kitchen and bathroom, even though it was a shower curtain preventing someone looking in! Other than that...I would definitely stay again!"

"Hi Carol: The few problems (TV, light switch) were taken care of promptly. We did have a problem in using the rowboat -- no oarlocks! Paddling it with a canoe paddle got pretty tiring! We'll probably be back next year."

Will definitely be returning! Best place we could've found.
"If I could give this place more stars, I would. Although when we arrived Allan and Chiyoko were on their vacation, we were still greeted by a friendly face who was there in their place. The company was the best. You have your privacy both in and outside of your place (there's a tall fence around the compound).
Our stay and the location were more than either my husband or myself had expected. We were included in activities with other people living in the compound and definitely made us feel like we found the right place. We've made some good friends and plan on returning in the [hopeful] near future. Not being from the area, they really gave us a sense of what it can be like living there and more of what things are like in the area (what to expect, pricing, directions, things to do, etc). Whenever we needed anything, people were there to help us out. I really can't wait to go back even though we just got home from there..but next time we plan on bringing our daughter.
Thank you guys for providing so much more than we could have asked for. You really made this vacation worth it."

"We loved staying in this delightful upstairs unit for a summer girls getaway. It had everything we needed. Quite delightful to hang out in the peaceful bedroom amongst the treetops with no street traffic. The beach and boardwalk excitement were just a block away, tons of great restaurants and shops on Abbott McKinney. Books to read. Chairs, umbrella and cooler to use when we went to the beach. They recommended places for a special dinner. It's not a hotel, but then again that is not what we were looking for. We hope to come back again! Thanks, Dody and Kevin for making our getaway so fun!"
