Great home. We will book again next year!!
The house was everything that we had anticipated. We had 10 people in our group and we had plenty of room. Thank you so much and you can count on us booking again next year!
Beautiful and relaxing
Thank you so much. We have done so many great things so far this week. Close to New Orleans, great beaches , even hit Pensacola and toured the battleship in Alabama. Weather cooperated so not much rain( yes it did call for rain everyday but only rains a little bit). Perfect for families and friends. The house has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing vacation.
Great family friendly rental
Place was great. Pictures don't do it justice. We slept 13 very comfortably. Kitchen had all the amenities we needed, the only thing is the handmixer didn't work when we were there but who would know that till it was tried. Very very kid friendly gates and highchairs and toys available . There are plenty of pillows, beach towels, kitchen towels, blankets, pots and pan's, everything you need for the whole week. Washer and dryer works great. Plenty of inflatables for the community pool. Only recommendation we have is detailed instructions for use of TVs and Netflix in every room needed. Would be nice to have a binder with details about the area, things to do, restaurants, when trash pick up is, etc.
Great spot for weekend on the river...
Property was in great condition. We comfortably slept 12+ in beds. Very nice furniture and amenities inside the house with bar, nice kitchen table, flat screens, roomy kitchen etc. We brought a party barge and enjoyed cruising down waterways and found nice sand bar area to relax only 10 min away. Fish fry, smoked butts, steak night, ... perfect camp style weekend. Would highly recommend for a party of 10-15. Nice quiet neighborhood... would love to come again. Thanks Gabe. ~LQ
We had MANY issues with the property. I emailed the owner on the 29th, the day of checkout, and have yet to get a response. 1hr after arrival i was watermopping the entire house because our feet were black!!! Not exactly the warm welcoming i expected. Come on vacation and spend $$$$ to clean?!? Went to use the bathroom & no complimentary roll in site as stated in the welcome email. No initial papertowel roll either as stated the 1st is complimentary. The drawers in the kitchen....previous comments you'll read is leterally no joke! It is so annoying we finally took out everything we needed and cluttered the countertops just so we didn't have the hassle. The owners could have added this after many complaints posted from previous renters. The bar stool rivits are broken and poked the kids as it's like a nail sticking up. Boards near jucuzzi outside loose & molding behind the bar easily comes off when i accidentally bumped it with nails sticking out. ANTS in the master bath & upstairs bath were rediculous!!! I had to clean out my bags multiple times. ANTS in my medicine, carrying bag, floor, & countertop. There was a huge roach in the kitchen & 1 smaller one on me IN BED!!! I had a fit!!! Jacuzzi in master bath turns on, but won't turn off. My husband had to disconnect it from the wall to shut it off. We couldn't enjoy this luxury the remaining of the stay. Jacuzzi outside only half the jets work so we couldn't all enjoy it at the same time. Night fishing we looked forward to...the light is burnt so we had to go to the peer to night fish with the crowd instead of enjoying a relaxing night @ the property like we planned. Bring wash cloths....we couldn't find but 1 so we had to go buy some. Later in our stay a we found a few more were hidden under sheets, but still not many. The pool key & tv instructions were not provided we had to call to get instructions and wait for a call back. The house is spacious and very nice when you walk in, but we were very disappointed to pay the price we did expecting to enjoy all that is stated in the description and show up to those things broken. Maintenance is apparently a HUGE issue with this rental. We won't be back, unfortunately,nor will we recommend. We had a few families inquire when they learned where we were staying and was interested in booking too because it accomidates 15, but because of our experience, they didn't book and i don't recommend you booking either. No call back, apology, or compensation from the owner!!!
When every other tenant gives your 4 to 5 stars and you receive a 1 start review, it makes you question the character of the tenant. Some people are just crazy and are never satisfied, if you were to ever manager a rental like this you would completely understand. We go above and beyond to make sure our tenants have enjoyable stays and our track record proves that.
Try renting a hotel for 12 to 15 people. You would have to rent a minimum of 3 to 4 rooms per night costing you 300 to 350 per night per room. Lets do the math; 3 times $350 per night = $1,050 per night - stay there 3 days and you've spent $3,150. You just can get a better deal!
I can go on an on about this and other subjects related to the property; but again, some people our never satisfied.
We hope you have a great day.
Beautiful Home! Would book again.
The home was large and beautifully updated inside. We had 12 people in our party and never felt on top of each other. We enjoyed how large the kitchen was, since we spent the majority of our time in there. One thing I will mention is that the listing doesn't show there are baby gates and a high chair on site. That was a wonderful surprise, but one that we wish we had known before packing a few for the stairs. Pack some bug spray. The homes location on the water is gorgeous (especially at sunrise), but you will get eaten alive without bug spray.
Nicely updated with beautiful beach decor
Dock is great for fishing
Comfy beds - I actually miss them a little
Spacious - enough room for 3 small families. The bunk rooms are PERFECT for kids.
Quiet, peaceful neighborhood
Close to I10
20 minutes from Waveland beach
45 minutes to New Orleans
30 minutes to Gulfport beach area
The kitchen cabinets are a pain - we had read the reviews and didn't think much of it. But MAN are they difficult to open! They need pulls.
Master shower head was broken and dangling - It did still work, though.
Dirty dishes - moldy silverware in the dishwasher when we got there and a few bowls and cups that were in the cabinets were dirty. One even had dried macaroni and cheese still in the bowl. The kitchen cleaning doesn't seem to be very thorough. BUT the rest of the house was clean and crisp, beds included!
This is not meant, in any way, to deter you from the property. As I said in the title, I would certainly book again. There are pros and cons to every place you stay. For us, the pros FAR out weighed the cons.
Hollywood Casino and the Silver Slipper Casino just minutes away! Gulf Coast Beaches are a 10 minute drive. New Orleans is 45 minutes from the property.
