Great view needs help

  • 2 of 5

The view at Waters Edge is spectacular and the beds are comfortable. Other than those 2 positives this property needs help. The deck over the water is wonderful however there is no safety railing at all. A fall off this deck onto the jagged coral below would be serious. The kitchen is functional, but small. The living area does not have one piece of furniture pictured on the web site. It is VERY tired, shabby and uncomfortable. There is a piece of plywood with a window AC unit that covers one of the living room windows that is not pictured in the photos. Bedroom AC had black mold and doors and windows either don't open, have holes in the screens, or no screens, making it impossible to open house up to hear the beautiful waves or get the nice fresh air. Baths are fine. You have to take bottles to town and buy drinking water which was information not given to us upon check-in. Took several days to figure out where and how to get drinking water.

The people on Spanish Wells are friendly and helpful, water was breathtaking but to get to a snorkeling reef you must charter a boat and if it's windy you can't get there at all. Kayaks were nice, if weather cooperates.

Very surprised at all other positive reviews of cottage. Two stars for great view and good beds.....other than that cottage needs a lot of repairs.

Owner's Response: The deck does not have a railing, but guests knew this prior to arrival as there is no railing shown in any of our pictures. We have always had many compliments on our kitchen for how well equipped it is including pantry items (even an extra stash of liquors, which guests took total advantage of, there wasn't a drop when they left). They had friends on the island that were over all of the time so I guess it did get crowded because there were more than four people in there. We put a queen futon and two jr. Twin futons in the living room, instead of a regular couch and two single chairs. We never had an A/C Unit in the living area and previous guests had stated that it would have been nice to have an A/C Unit in the front room, and in order for us to put one in there we had to put in a window Unit and block up one of the windows. Was not aware of any mold in Bedroom AC. This will be looked into immediately. All doors are being replaced. Upon arrival, when guests checked in, they were showed the five gallon water bottle and were told that drinking water could be purchased on 3rd Street. The city water on the island is not drinkable and guests pulled up to a random well on the side of the road and filled up the water bottle instead of going to 3rd Street as advised. The guests were also told about the private beach two minutes away from the cottage where they could pull up there golf cart and there is Excellent snorkeling. Previous guests love this spot (as shown in reviews). Guests asked us to rent snorkel gear ahead of time and we requested shoe sizes for fins, we purchased size 11 and 8 as requested and guests never rented them, I guess we should get deposits before we do this again.

Great stay at Water's Edge

  • 5 of 5

Jaime was totally on it when it came to answering any questions prior to the rental. After arriving, same timely response. Had a glitch with the cableTV service, and Shennon came out on a Sunday, in particular Superbowl Sunday, to get it resolved. View is unbeatable. Beds were very comfortable. Plenty of hot water. Kitchen has everything you need. Relaxing cart ride to town was actually enjoyable with all the friendly people on the scenic ride. Absolutely loved it, and would highly recommend it!
