This is our second trip back to this spectacular house and it wont be the last. It accommodated our entire family this year, including young children. All four bedrooms were full and yet, we still had so much room. The house is located in walking distance to the beach, the Fourth of July Crab Fest, and downtown. My mother doesn't get around to good, so thankfully we were able to rent a golf cart from the property manager by just making a call. The owner also has contact numbers listed, which worked out in our favor, we called and they responded!!! Very gracious staff, Tammy, Kevin, and Mr. Charlie. Thanks again for making our stay so pleasant, looking forward to next year.
We are very fortunate to have this wonderful family stay at The Abode two years in a row for their family vacation. It was a pleasure having your family stay as our guest and we hope to have you again in the future. We are pleased to hear you love the property as much as we do.
Exceeded our expectations
This is a wonderful place to stay that makes you feel right at home. A relaxing getaway that our family truly needed. We could have stayed at the property without leaving and would have been completely satisfied. When we did venture out, Old Town was right there and had charmiing restaurants and retail shops to explore. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are already discussing a late summer or early fall return. The management was very courteous and helpful.
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the property. We strive to make each visit a pleasureable one for each guest. We look forward to your return in the fall.
A wonderful setting!
My family rented this home for a family reunion and loved it. The home is spacious, the pool is awesome and the kitchen is great. There was enough space for us all to be together and also have our privacy. The house was so well thought out and a great way to spend a long weekend. It is also very close to the beach!
It was a pleasure having you and your family as our guest. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the Abode so much. Hope to have you back again soon.
Very unprofessional group to deal with
I've rented from VRBO over 10 times, and this was by far my most frustrating experience. Communication with the management group was poor from the get go. We stayed for two nights and the group required a very expensive security deposit. They won't refund, or give you any details, on your deposit for 30 days after checkout. After 30 days the group stopped responding to my phone calls and never communicated again about the deposit. I ended up having to file a dispute with my credit card to get the deposit back.
This is a very unfortunate situation. As the owner of 10 vacation rentals, 8 of which are on VRBO, we have had 169 guest at our properties since Jan 1, 2015 through VRBO and Homeaway and this is our first negative review. We have only held back one other deposit of $50 for a broken window which was reported by our guest.
As far as communications go, we have been in contact with this party via email since their stay, with the last being on Aug 25, 2015. On Aug 20 she left 1 voice mail and also sent an email which we responded to.
As VRBO property owners know, the success of vacation rentals is dependent on responsible people who have good intentions and are honest. This party advised that they would have 8 guest and 1 dog. We have 6 vacation rentals within blocks of each other as we inspect our properties regularly. We visited the property on several occasions during their visit and found that there were continuously a minimum of over 12 guest, had 3 dogs, and 9 vehicles throughout both nights of their stay.
If there are any concerns about our reputation please contact The Hancock County Chamber of Commerce and The Hancock County Tourism Development Commission.
Had everything we needed!
The home exceeded all our expectations. The open floor plan allowed our family with more than enough room to accommodate everyone comfortably. It was definitely an oasis setting with indoor/outdoor space and the pool was awesome. We were able to walk or ride the golf cart to everywhere we needed to go. The home was located at the end of the first block and had plenty of parking to accommodate all vehicles. The owner and mgmt company went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. Thanks, Donna
I enjoyed speaking with you and your mother. It is guest / families like yours that make vacation rentals a success. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the house so much and hope you can visit again soon.
