not an ethical owner

  • 1 of 5

The property is generally a nice place. We have stayed a several different places in the Coastal Cottages collection over the past 10 years. .

Upon arrival at this one, we notified the Property Manager of rotted parts of the WOODEN spiral staircase leading to the crow's nest.

Nothing was done about it during our stay.

Within a few days after our departure, the Owner filed a claim on our Travel Insurance that blames us for her years of neglect in maintaining the rotting staircase. Obviously an attempt to have the Insurance subsidize the replacement of the staircase. Additionally, that we somehow caused the kitchen sink to separate from the counter top???

Owner's Response: In over two years of renting our home, we have never had any damage or insurance claim. The steps were inspected before this rental and deemed safe. Of course, beach homes are subject to weather damage over time. However, we had no reason to believe there was an immediate concern. I could post pictures, but I believe it is inappropriate to litigate a private matter on line or call one's ethics into question.

Fab House, Owner, Manager

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home, beautifully appointed - photos do not do it justice.

Obviously the owners know how to decorate, furnish, and supply a house. Washer and dryer on 2 different floors - perfect.

Every type of plate, glass, container, etc in the gorgeous kitchen. Every channel for this football lover over the college bowl season.

My kids and in-laws had a ball. Great house for generational gatherings and the elevator was a plus for luggage + groceries.

Having storage underneath the house for our SUP's was great too! Being able to keep our beach stuff (and use all the provided beach stuff) dry was really awesome too.

Kathy - the house manager, was very helpful and so kind.

We have stayed at 2 other Coast Cottages and they were very nice, but this was the best.

Can't wait to go back! Thank you Kathy + Kathy!

Amazing house superb location!

  • 5 of 5

At the airport heading home but wanted to let everyone know you can't go wrong renting this house. Beach was best one I have ever been on. Water was super warm. Service from property manager was 5 star. We had a family reunion with spread of ages so elevator came in handy. Icing on cake was printer that you had available for tenants... Reduced stress for a number of our family members that they could print their boarding passes. Highly recommend it!!
