Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.0 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
NO AC and difficult to get help from iTrips
AC went out not allowing me and family in the place for 2 days.
Didn’t really think it was the fault of the owners until I saw the return air filter. This thing had not been changed in at least 6mo probably closer to a year with this amount of build up to the point I question the air quality. Would attach pics if I could.
The place is in a very busy area next to a bar and sketchy area.
Having 2 small children not having Ac was REAL burden with naps etc.
It could have been fixed quicker but the owner must not have liked the initial quote so they had to wait for another company which took the entire day. 9 pm the day it was “fixed” the place was 84deg. Not exactly comfortable sleeping temp.
iTrips/VRBO was the worst part of the deal. No one would talk to me outside of email except the poor service guy who had little he could do. iTrips/VRBO initial offer was to comp 50% of one night and eventually refunded a full night. (Note after fees etc that only covers 50% of the actual cost) not sure if anyone has ever had to break down a pack n play but imagine that times 2 (twin babies) but it’s a real headache and having one night refunded was hardly worth the pain. Heck I probably spent more than that in gas letting babies nap and generally staying cool.
Horrible horrible experience that could have been avoided with proper maintenance of the place and proper service by iTrips/VRBO.
Definetly not using iTrips or VRBO and definetly won’t be staying at this particular place.
Unfortunately, the AC did go out during the stay, and we had to order a new part that took a day to come in. Everything is taken care of now, and the AC is fully operational! We understand how our hot summer weather can be uncomfortable without AC, and we did try to relocate the Guest while the AC was down overnight, however they did decide to continue their stay. We are available for issues like this 24hrs and we were in constant communication with the Guest. The issue was taken care as quickly as possible, and is ready to go for future Guests. Thank you!
This place was the perfect location to the beach. It was right across the street from a public beach access, 2 wonderful restaurants, and the bus stop. The rental was perfect for a party of 3. Everything worked well and the place was equipped with everything we needed. It even had a blender. We did not have a small cooler(we had bigger ones) and we needed 3 beach chairs. We asked the manager if we could get those items and they had them in our place within 6 hours. The beach wasn't too busy like it is in Clearwater.
Great location so close to the beach!
Enjoyed our stay at the Sea Cottage. Very close to the beach, easy parking, fully stocked and equipped with essentials needed to cook and clean. The bar down the street wasn’t loud at all, or we slept through the noise but it was no issue for us. Two suggestion I would like make is regarding cleaning the floors and locking the windows. Given that it is a beach house, I understand it’s hard to get rid of ALL the sand that gets trekked inside but those floors were down right dirty. By the end of the first night, everyone’s feet were black underneath. We paid a hefty cleaning fee so this should not have been an issue. Second, none of the windows were locked upon arrival and it was quite the struggle to secure them at night.
Having said all that, we had a great weekend in Madeira Beach. Thank you for sharing your beach house!
U have text twice regarding picnic table and storm door.

Our friends and my family stayed at the cottage in Madeira beach and the place was phenomenal. Fully updated, all the utensils in the full kitchen we could ever need, beach accessories and very cosy and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!!!
