A very nice place with a few issues

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice spot with the potential to be great.

The house was advertised as having an outdoor grill and we had planned much of our menu around grilling. Hamburgers worked under the broiler, but we were disappointed in having to do our eight pound whole salmon in the oven instead of on the grill.

Some of the equipment is in need of updating/replacement. The electric grill in particular is in rough shape - to the point where some of our group felt uncomfortable using it.

The best (only!) kitchen knife was a four inch paring knife. Preparing food for nine people using a paring knife is difficult at best. We managed to do a lot of slicing and dicing with it, but it balked at filleting our salmon. The serrated blade on my Leatherman tool was brought into play for that task. Ugly! Bottom line - a full set of decent knives is an absolute requirement.

The sink strainers/stoppers were both broken. The rubber bottom of one was stuck in the drain, causing that sink to drain extremely slowly. The point here is that this had to be immediately obvious to the cleaners, who either didn't bother to clean the sink, or opted to leave one sink stopped up and two broken strainers on the counter. Things like this are an indication that other areas of the house may not be receiving the attention they deserve.

My daughter and grandson immediately settled into the Jacuzzi tub. When they turned on the jets, the tub was filled with crud. Yuk! It has obviously been some time since this tub was properly cleaned - using a cleaner that works within the piping system. Also, the drain on this tub has to be manually held open - another indication of the lack of attention to detail.

The deck has not been cleared of branches, pine needles, and debris for some time, nor have the furniture and railings been cleaned (they are covered with the type of growth that one would expect in this moist environment). As a result, none of our party made use of the deck. Time for a thorough spring cleaning!

The single wine opener was broken. A quick trip to the only (very small) grocery store on the island for a replacement was not successful. We eventually checked with the local golf course club house, where a friendly worker loaned us one for the weekend.

Why no wine glasses of any sort? We're not picky - tall water glasses and coffee cups sufficed for most days. We borrowed a set of wine glasses from the local country club for our big birthday celebration.

Quiet setting. Well maintained, well designed for large groups.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home gave us an opportunity to gather 4 generations from three continents in a convenient home in a quiet setting. A rare opportunity for quality time together. A large kitchen for real cooking. A basement where the kids could be as loud as they wanted without disturbing the parents, grandparents and great grandparents. A large enough living room for all 17 of us. I hope to use this property again.

Great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion at Anderson Island over Labor day weekend and the Ospreyland home was great. There were 16 of us, 8 adults and 8 kids, and we rented all 3 floors. Even if there were less of us I'd still rent all 3 floors as it was great to spread out. The house is well stocked for cooking, plenty of blankets, outdoor toys and chairs (perfect for visiting the lakes or sound), lots of room to spread out and a great theater room for watching movies/down time. We also really enjoyed the air hockey table. Good location if you want to walk to the clubhouse for food /entertainment. Walking distance to the lake, tennis, golf. There was a live band one of the nights we were there at the clubhouse and it was great fun. It's also a quick bike ride to the store. If we go to Anderson Island again we would stay at Ospreyland. Just a note: there are no king beds in this house just queen or smaller! and while the kitchen is stocked it doesn't have a coffee grinder.

Wonderful place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great layout for large family gathering. Lots of bedrooms, supplied with everything you need for family fun. Kitchen very well stocked, including extra dinnerware, silverware, kids dishes, crock-pots, mixers, pancake skillet, waffle irons, cooking utensils. Extra sleeping bags, kids toys, golf clubs, fire pit, a great air hockey table, and theater area (which we didn't use). Beautiful quiet wooded area close to the golf course and lake. Only drawback was that sound carries from room to room so can be a challenge to sleep if some are talking while others are trying to sleep. Love the house overall! Thank you for all the extra vacation supplies!
