Guestbook comments from the manager

I loved the house and the location. I loved that the pool was right outside your front door. The house is very spacious and has everything that you would need. We had a great time. The only thing that I felt was not great, and I reported it to the Propery management company, was that I felt like the cleaning crew did not do a great job. I am sure that will be corrected now that it has been reported.

Too many negatives to this home

Reviewer Comments:

I want to start with the positives: Good location, very close to the beach and cute decor. Now the not so pleasant things we experienced. We have been coming to Port A for 5 years and have stayed in lots of different homes. This is by far the worst. The furniture was dirty and stained, the floors were dirty with sand even before we walked in (it is the beach so I'm sure it's difficult to get it all up), the kitchen was gross. There were ants in a clean dishwasher and all of the "clean" dishes had to be rewashed because they had food on them still. One of the most frustrating things was how ill equipped this kitchen was. They didn't even have a can opener. That is a basic staple item for a kitchen. We had to go to two different stores on our first night to find one and spent $10 on it. We left it there for other visitors so they don't have to go searching for one. It would be nice if the management reimbursed us. The wifi didn't work, which isn't that big of a deal since it's kind of nice to unplug for a weekend, but they shouldn't say they have it if they don't. I mentioned these issues to the property management as we checked out and nobody reached out to us to discuss any of it, which is why I this is being posted in a review. I think others need to know that there are some issues that it doesn't sound like they have any intention of addressing. Maybe this will spur them on to get an exterminator, different cleaning company and restock their basic kitchen items. If those issues weren't there it would have been a cute place to stay.

Okay for a short trip

  • 3 of 5

The Sea Esta was okay for our short trip, especially since we spent very little time inside. If we had been in town longer (3+ nights) and/or if it had rained, we would have been in trouble. It's not the most comfortable house. I wouldn't recommend it for more than 6 adults. If you only need a place to sleep, and won't be doing any cooking or food prep, it's a good location that will work well for your Port A stay. The pool is steps from the front door, which is nice. Sound carries within the house and from outside - we had a noisy group nearby and they woke us up in the midnight-1:30 a.m. time frame both nights. If you are a light sleeper, this may not be the place for you.

This is a SMALL cottage. There are beds for 10+, depending on how cozy you want to sleep, but the overall space is very tight. We had nine people (only 4 adults, and 5 kids, age 10 and under), and we felt crowded. The main living area does not have enough seating for everyone to sit when playing games or watching TV.

The kitchen is poorly stocked - it's the least-equipped rental I've ever been in. The refrigerator barely cools, the dishwasher does not clean properly, and there is almost no counter space for meal prep. There are very few pots and pans. Bring EVERYTHING you may need to cook or prepare meals, and to clean up, because it's likely the house won't have what you need (we had to go out and buy a can opener). And plan to wash everything before you use it. The dishes and pots all seemed to be covered in a layer of grease, likely due to the sad dishwasher.

While the bathrooms were clean, and the kitchen counters/sink were clean, the house overall felt dirty. There are fingerprints, hand prints, scuffs, and marks on every painted surface.

The internet did not work while we were there (thankfully we didn't really need internet, but still... if the house claims to have it, it should work).

Reviewer Comments:

The house comfortably accommodated 9 people. More than enough beds and bathrooms (especially with all women!) Only downside was the coffee maker was broken, so we had to make an early morning coffee-run. (I did inform management about the issue). Close to beach access road 1A.

Reviewer Comments:

Layout worked perfect for our family and number of guests, upstairs master and oversized master suite downstairs. Loved the oversized kitchen table and pool out front. One minor gripe is the upstairs bath apparently doesn't have a liner (builder never installed) and as a result water leaked down into the kitchen! The owners are aware but that wasn't disclosed to us. Didn't affect our stay just a surprise to us.
