About Fawna Branigan
I'm a construction manager with an Engineering firm so I travel quite a bit to different projects around the world. This place is one of three places I like to call home. It is always a great place to unwind and just get away from it all.

Large comfortable house right on the water with private dock, equipped with kayaks and fishing from the dock. Beautiful setting and views. The house accommodated the 6 of us, no problem in its 4 bedrooms.
The hosts were very accommodating and the property was as advertised. We had a great stay - thanks!
I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay. Look forward to seeing you guys again if you are ever in the area
The property had a good distribution, a large kitchen and some new appliances. The pup table in the kitchen was nice with a water view. However, the kitchen and master bathroom were disappointing.
I found the pots and pans is disarray just piled on top of another in no order or organization and messy and not even washed!
Two pans were put away without bring cleaned and food caked on the inside.
Things were just stuffed and piled on top of the other and the shelf lining was a mess exposing dirty stained cabinets. The oven had food remnants on the inside and was black with gunk. The microwave too needed cleaning. A coffee spill was left uncleaned. Did anyone mop? The cooktop also had food remnants on it. I wiped it off and my new sponge was black with “soot”? Coffeemaker was fine. Fridge was new large and clean.
No dish towels found until I saw a pile of
mismatched towels stacked in the master closet under the Christmas wrapping paper collection, when I noticed a dish towel.
Also in closet was someone’s clothing/bathing suit stuffed in the corner.
The master bathroom was ok except for the dirty/stained underside of the toilet seat. Also owners or past guests had their personal items in the medicine cabinets.
The shower curtains frame looked to be rigged to help support itself, maybe you could paint the PVC pipe and buy matching shower curtains.
Under the kitchen sink were either dead bugs or rodent droppings among a mess of too many cleaning products sponges and brushes and I noticed a card from an exterminator company in the cabinet, so pests must have been treated at some point, but dead bugs left there.
The pool was ok we did not use ( if pool person came there was still sand on the bottom of pool.) beach chairs were rusty no big deal .
The lawn needed to be cut and was unkempt with weeds.
Outdoor ceiling fans were rusted and dirty.
Patio furniture ok.
The pillows in the other bedrooms were lumpy gross with stains. Thankfully I don’t have daughters they would have NOT stayed.
At about 9am on the morning of our departure there was a woman sitting in a car in front of the house. She sat there until 11am as we finished packing the cars and departed. I assume she was the housekeeper. Awkward!
I do have pictures that will justify my complaints.
Fortunately the owner was lovely to work (text with). The place needs lots of TLC and rehab! Maybe a chat with the housekeeper could save this rentals reputation. Owner should inspect house.
It was unfortunate that I was not made aware of these issues as soon as they were found so I could address them while they were in the house. The pictures that were forwarded, were not to the standard of cleanliness that we strive for in the kitchen area. The cleaning company has been fired and the guests cleaning fee was refunded as soon as I was made aware after they left the house. This is the first bad review and I was shocked to find the house in such a disarray. The cleaning company had sent out a new person, which was not inspected after as they stated.
As for the rest of the house, the closets are used for spare linens and not typically evaluated for neatness as they are stacked up and used mainly by the cleaning staff. The clean towels are located in each of the bathrooms for use.
The bedding was cleaned (dated photos were sent which I saw) and replaced but the new cleaning lady did not know how to properly tuck in the sides of the bed so it did appear messy. This is something that I corrected with the cleaning company when I saw the photos, but was too late to correct before the guest arrived.
As I was VERY shocked, it was never taken as a negative from the guest, as I strive to make every stay a great experience. Now that I have another cleaning company and more supervision, this should not be an issue any longer. Thanks for your comments and pictures. I look forward to you staying again another time to see that this is truly a one time issue.
Great week! Clean house! Convenient location!
Great stay! Nothing negative say
Nice spot in a quiet neighborhood with an awesome pool and fantastic view!
This was the perfect house for my and my sisters family. The pool is awesome complete with space to sit outside and enjoy the view of the pool or the dock and inlet area. Beds were comfortable and the space had all of the necessary amenities and more! We will certainly stay again.
This mini vacation was just what we needed
We were there for a dance convention (our kids) but my husband and I enjoyed the pool and the beautiful view! We went fishing off the dock in the afternoon. Great place to stay! Owner was sweet and helpful. Would highly recommend this place
Thank you. We enjoyed having you!
