Charming beach cottage
We truly enjoyed our stay! It was perfect for what we needed. The beds were comfy and the cottage was spotless! We didn’t use the TV so I can not comment on that but the WiFi was strong and we were able to use computers and our phones without issue. The location is spot on! My daughter and I were treated to a fantastic fireworks show put on at The Seawitch. We were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. We will definitely be renting this cottage again!
Thank you so much for the kind words. It really does make the extra effort we put in to show everyone a consistently easy and fun stay worth it. If you ever stay at one of our properties again, remind us that we owe you some $ for some Britts Donuts on the house! Thanks again for being awesome guests and leaving our future guests with a true to life descriptor of the space. We hope to see you again soon!
Outside furniture broke and we had to call for furniture to sit in. Couch was filthy. Pulled out hide-a-bed to sleep on and mattress pad had been puked on. Had to turn over and put at the foot in order to use bed. Supposed to be set up for 4 but only 3 cups and one broken. Supposed to have full set kitchen but no bowl to even make a salad in. Compared to other family staying at other homes we got the short stick. Others had much better accommodations.
I'm sorry that you had this experience! The tenants prior to your stay ended up breaking the chair seats outside unbeknownst to us. As soon as you notified us, we went and purchased two brand new chairs immediately. We had not been notified of anything else missing or needed during your stay. If we had, we would have made it right! We stock extra items because our properties can be abused at times by our guests. It does happen. We list our cleaners on both page one of our binder and on each fridge so in case there are ANY inconveniences at all, we can take care of our guests. And I received the call about your request for new chairs and responded immediately. Every now and again, we provide extra services, even discounting for a journey that doesn't go according to plan. We do need an open line of communication for that to work though. That's key. We hope to work with you again in the future and provide services that match our predominantly 5 star rated track record. Good luck on your future adventures.
Quaint But Skimpy
The unit was quaint but lacked a lot of amenities especially electrical outlets. The kitchen was way too small with absolutely no counter space and no where to plug in the coffee maker. We had to put the coffee maker on the bookshelf in the bedroom for the week and had to put the toaster on the stove top because that's the only place the plug would reach. The coffee maker also did not have an automatic shutoff feature which can be dangerous if you leave it plugged in. The bathroom was also located off of the bedroom only and was hard to get in and out of the way the doorway was angled. The TV did not have cable, only internet service was provided. In essence, I was not impressed considering that my sister stayed in a two-level, two-bedroom condominium with an enclosed garage and cable service, two properties north (same distance to the beach) that was much newer and much nicer for only about $500 more over the same time period. She also booked hers several months in advance if that means anything. The kitchen sink drain also leaked and had to be repaired while we were there. It was at least convenient to the beach and to the downtown area. That's the only good thing I can really say about the place. Thought about only giving it 1-star but that that was a bit too harsh. If I could give it 1 1/2 stars, I feel that would be more accurate.
We are sorry that you felt you had a sub-par experience. Next to none of our guests share your experience so we will do whatever we can to make sure it doesn't happen again. Each suite has access to charter cable television though the smart TV roku application. I wish you had asked/called. I had spoken with your prior and would have loved to help. It's very easy to navigate and I would have been happen to show you how it works. Also, the welcome binder explained it in detail as well. With regards to the small leak repair, I'd have to say you discovering a new leak, and us attending to it immediately speaks to our degree of attentiveness. As far as our coffee pot? It's a pretty standard model and functions just fine. The pictures of our suite, along with it's quirks and uniqueness and very accurately portrayed on our listing and it is priced super low due to its smaller size. In the future, I'd recommend asking a number of additional questions prior to booking a suite as it seems you have very particular needs and I'd hate for your next host to be caught off guard to them. Although your assessment seems fairly inaccurate and a little unfair, we appreciated hosting you and wish you luck on your next trip.
