Great Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

Darling Cottage with all of the amenities. Clean, comfortable and well appointed. Intimate back yard with no fellow beach goers looking on. Kitchen well equipped with dining seating inside and outside. Owner very nice and accommodating. No doubt will be back next year, the question is for how many weeks as the train to downtown Chicago just seven minutes away. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay!

Never again!

  • 1 of 5

This stay was a nightmare, from day 1! I should have known better from the fact that the entire transaction was conducted over the phone, with no written rental agreement ever provided. I was a little suspicious of that, so thankfully took out the rental guarantee from HomeAway! However, I was desperate, so went through with the rental. The cottage was clean & comfortable, however it was misrepresented. I'm not quite sure how it could possibly sleep 8. And although I had specifically asked about a washer/dryer, & was assured they would be available, they mysteriously "went on the blink" with the guests previous to us. (Hmm, wonder if they were charged for that??) The worst part was that I was charged $350 for "damages", including a $150 charge for not bringing sheets from the cabana to the house in the pouring rain! Even though I had to email the night before we left to find out the instructions for how she wanted everything left. I was also never provided with pictures of the supposed burn marks that my family of nonsmokers had caused. Please be cautious if you choose to rent this place. I would definitely do a walk-through with her on arrival!

Adorable cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

This has been one of the best cottages that I have ever rented!! The cottage was spottless, everything was very organized and neat. The owner/manager was very nice and a pleasure to deal with. You can definately tell that she takes pride in her property. I would recommend this cottage to anyone that wants to be close to the beach and on a quiet little street.
