Guestbook comments from the owner

I would rate The Red Speck with 5 stars plus! I'm not saying this

because it is going to the owner but because it is an awesome camp and we had a fantastic stay there. We have stayed at other camps and the Red Speck is definitely a home away from home rather than a fishing camp. It was clean, spacious, comfortable, and well kept. The upper deck, downstairs area, kitchen, bathroom and large ice maker were all greatly appreciated amenities. It was nice not to have to haul everything up the steps that we were going to use downstairs to cook or fish. Having a bathroom downstairs was a luxury! In addition, there is a private boat launch, 3 boat slips and a 3 carport area which makes it nice for a larger group.

Five adults stayed for 4 nights and 5 days and we enjoyed all the extras the camp had to offer such as a large tv in the living room along with tvs in each bedroom. We thought the location was very good to get to good fishing areas especially with such a long NO WAKE ZONE in the area.

Marc the owner answered any questions or handle any problems we may have had. We really appreciated his willingness to help with giving suggestions and maps of where to fish. As I mentioned before, The Red Speck Camp is a home, not a fishing camp.

I feel Marc takes great pride in his camp and truly wants his renters to

have a good time. We all know however, you can't please all people all the time! We enjoyed our stay tremendously and wouldn't hesitate to rent The Red Speck again!

Very Nice Camp! Perfect for what I needed!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the camp for a Mardi Gras fishing rodeo in July. It was just what we needed. The camp was very nice and very clean. Everyone had a great time! No hassle at all getting into the camp and getting set up. Thank you very much and we will be renting it again next year!

Horrible experience

  • 1 of 5

This camp is not managed well at all. Many things were unkept and needed repairs. Open containers of food were present in the fridge when we got there. Exposed wires on ceiling fan. Outdoor furniture was broken. Washer and dryer didn't work. Wifi never worked. When problems arose, the owner was accusatory and not understanding whatsoever. Will never rent from this owner again, nor do I recommend anyone else does.

Owner's Response: Carlton, I do agree with a couple of issues that you've had, but some them were not accurate. 1. The Wifi was working to my knowledge and the Wifi name and password is above the refrigerator on the inside of the cabinet. I checked with the Wifi company and they let me know that there were not any outages in that area. 2. We did have some outdoor furniture that was broken which after your stay ( and every other customers stay) my househeeper does a property walk through to see what is broken and or what needs to be replaced. As I'm sure that you saw there were more than enough outdoor furniture for our customers to use. We have 2 full outdoor sets of furniture up stairs on the upper deck as well as several single chairs. My housekeeper did see where 3 of the chairs were broken and we got rid of them immediately. Downstairs we have 2 hammocks, 1 large picnic table which is made out of steel and a 3" table top, 3 rocking chairs and as of my knowledge there still there and in working condition. If i am wrong about any of the furniture than I apologize. I know that broken furniture can lead to customers getting hurt and make it a point to get rid of the furniture immediately after we notice them. Again, I have had 5 stars with all my rentals and do not take it lightly when I don't see a 5 star. This issues are fixed immediately so that the future customers will not have the same issues. Obviously I'm not happy with this review but I rely on my customers to let me know what there thoughts were on the trip because without your response I will never know what I have to do to make my customers happy with there stay.

Great home but we had some issues!

  • 3 of 5

This is a very comfortable, spacious, well appointed home - however, for us , it was not as perfect as it might have been.

Unfortunately we didn't receive the emailed access code to gain access until nearly 5.30 (access should have been from 4pm)

We had expected wifi but there was no wifi code.

There is an expensive cleaning fee attached to the rent but we saw no evidence of recent cleaning on our arrival. The waste bins in kitchen and bathrooms had not been emptied, there were candy papers all over the living room floor, the kitchen work surface was sticky and obviously hadn't been cleaned since last being used.

On our return I sent a message to the owner and requested a partial reimbursement of the cleaning fee to compensate for the state of the place when we arrived but heard nothing from him.

Having no direct contact details for him was real frustration as we could only communicate through the 'home away' website.. And with no wifi we were stuck!

Sorry to sound negative as it was a lovely place but our overall experience was tarnished by these irritations. When you go into someone else's home to stay it's good to feel it's been properly cleaned prior to your arrival.

Owner's Response: Ms. Trudy, I was there the day of your arrival and saw that there was no evidence of the camp being dirty. I didn't roll my hands over the island bar so I cant give you and accurate response to that. The WiFi was in and out for a week or so and that was out of my control. As far as the cleaning fee, that was clearly stated on the rental agreement so it should of came at no surprise. There is not a fee that I try to hide to my customers and every fee is listed in the line item details as I have attached below. I'm very sorry for the issues that you had and as you can see from my previous reviews I always take great care of my camp and customers. Camp Payment Details: Respectfully, Marc Albarado Reservation Details Quote 2 nights $600.00 Cleaning Fee $130.00 Service Fee - Learn More $79.20 Including VAT tax of 20% Subtotal $809.20 Refundable Damage Deposit $250.00 Total Payment $1,059.20 Total Fees ($79.20) Payable to you $980.00

Owner's Response: Rusty, I apologize for the inconvenience, but I had no control for the water heater busting. I did offer you and extra night free when ever you want it. I appreciate all of my customers and take great pride in the fact that I've had 5 star in 26 of my 28 reviews. I want to make it up to you and I know that you were not interested in the extra night but if you change your mind it still stands
