Guestbook comments from the owner

Our first time at Caretta Cottage. A very short walk on a private street to the beach. The home was clean, cozy and fresh smelling. The back deck, grill and sparkling pool made for perfect afternoons. The play set in the back yard, Foosball table and VCR with childrens videos provided hours of entertainment for the kids. The home is close to the City Marina and next to Wild Dunes Golf Resort. Plus, we could finally bring our dog on vacation. A great family experience.

Halloween at Caretta Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My Mother, 4 year old niece, and I along with our two dogs stayed at Caretta Cottage for a long weekend. We were very happy with the accommodations. The place was clean and comfortable. We had more than enough room. The house is extremely spacious with places to get away. The water in pool was too cold to use but my niece loved the playset in the back yard. The toys left by the outside spigot were great to bring to the beach. This was the kind of house that felt comfortable, but not stuffy. The kitchen was huge with a great stove. The beach was a close walk and it was nice to be able to rinse off outside before going inside. The fenced in back yard was great for the dogs and for privacy. The owners were very responsive to communications ahead of time and during our stay. We had an issue with the light being out on the front porch and they responded immediately. The owners gave us tips for a Halloween festival on the island and where to go for trick-or-treat and we had a great time. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely cottage for a beach getaway. It was an amazing place with nice accomadations. Everything was clean and welcoming! This is one of the cleanest places that I have stayed at on vacation. It was such a nice place I would recomend that anyone who wants to get away and stay at a cottage that is like home should definately book this cottage. It is accomadated with a nice pool that you do not have to worry about being crowded. Also another plus about this cottage is that it conviently located one block from the beach. Our experience also could not have been any better due to the very respectable and friendly owner who made sure that everything was ready when we arrived for check-in.

Christmas 2015

  • 1 of 5

My family stayed in this home over the Christmas holiday 2015. There were 6 of us including my 8 month old granddaughter. This is the third home we've rented in the area for the holidays, with all prior experiences being great. I have only one word to describe this home FILTH!!! My wife and daughter in law on two occasions scrubbed the floors, and the water was black. The comforter and bedding was never washed, there were red spots (who knows what that was?) that came out after we washed them, which would indicate the bedding was left as is when the prior tenants left, the beach sand in the beds would also be a good indication..... There are toys and garbage laying in the flower beds, pet hair everywhere on the furniture & washing machine. My daughter brought blankets to lay on the floor so the baby could crawl around...... I can't begin to describe how dirty this place was. Being in the hospitality business, I'm usually very forgiving, knowing that things can be missed. This place was never cleaned before we arrived, we have photos. I'm sure if it was clean our experience would have been much better. We're very disappointed! In our business if a guest had this type of experience our franchise would force us to refund all of their payment. That should happen here too, but I know it will not. Perhaps this review will help prevent the next person/family from having to live in absolute FILTHY conditions!!!! This home was much cleaner the day we left, than when we arrived.

Beach Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Johnson's for a wonderful experience! We rented the cottage at the last minute for a belated Christmas with our kids and brand new grandchildren. The cottage was spacious, well appointed, and provided the perfect spot to get together. There was a great kitchen, neat sunroom, and a wonderful fireplace with plenty of room for stockings. The owners were great, making a special trip to make sure we could use the gas logs. The rate was reasonable. There was even a great fenced yard for our pets. The beach was a block away, an easy walk! We are already trying to determine when we can return!
