Nice, cozy cottage close to beaches. Just spent 5 nights there with my husband and 8 year-old twins and am so glad we found this little gem. It was the perfect size for us and had all the basic amenities. Kids loved the pool. Management was quick to respond and very accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.
Outdated and Problems
Air conditioning wasn’t adequate, outdated, keyless entry continued not to work
Perfect little cottage for our winter vacation.
My husband and I stayed in the Sweet Jasmine cottage in February 2019. It was very clean and the perfect little cottage for the two of us and our little dog. Excellent location within walking distance to the beach and John’s Pass. It’s in a good neighborhood as well. Plus, the mattresses and bed pillows were very comfortable. A couple of improvements would be to add a coffee maker and more than one kitchen towel. We would definitely choose Island Paradise again.
Dear Robin, Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review and for the 5-star rating! We are so happy that you had such a great experience. Please come back and visit soon. Jeff and Gina PS. For future travelers, there is a coffee maker in the property.
A perfect Florida Getaway !!
We stayed in the Sweet Jasmine Cottage and as soon as we opened the door we felt like we were at home. This cottage is situated between the pool and the lanai. The cottage was very well equipped
and more importantly the beds were sooo comfy. The housekeeper and staff are on site constantly working on the grounds and attending to our needs.
Sadly, the weather did not cooperate but the beach supplies, chairs, kayaks etc were plentiful. The outdoor pool and hot tub added to the enjoyment of our stay.
This property is close to John’s Pass and beach access...both within walking distance. We were very lucky to have found this Florida
We would highly recommend this property to anyone !!🌴🌴🌴
Dear Gary, We are truly grateful for the opportunity to host great guests. Thank you for taking the time to submit a review and we hope to see you again in the future. Jeff and Gina
Cute property. Had some issues.
We really liked how cute the property was and how it was set up. The Tiki Hut was so nice and we had the BBQ grill right outside our back door which was so convenient. The interior of the cottage itself was cute and well equipped to meet our needs (Kitchen items/towels etc). It was also VERY dog friendly. Units with porches had gates so your dog could sit out with you, dog bowls available throughout the property and poopy bags available.
The issues we had though were when we arrived someone had patch a hole a wall and not cleaned up. There was debris on the floor below where the repair was and they left tools and drywall scraps. Not a huge deal but we expected to walk into a clean cottage. The rest of the cottage was very clean. Apparently the housekeeper had been in prior to the repair person.
The other thing was our air conditioning never went below 77 degrees. The first few days there we didn't really notice because it was a little cooler outside but once it became 80 degrees outside the cottage stayed warm and sticky from the humidity. When we tried to adjust the temperature one of the units started making a loud noise and the other just never lowered the temperature. It basically seemed t just recirculate the already warm air. The ceiling fans did work well and helped somewhat to make it bearable. When we did call about it we had 2 nights left on our trip. They said they were contacting maintanence. We did not hear back for a few hours and when I called again was told they could not get someone out that day and was offered a smaller unit in a property a few miles away. We had specifically chosen this property because it was by John's Pass. We did not want to pack up all our things and move to a smaller place miles away. SO we said we would stay but unless it became unbearable. We never heard from them again. I don't think they even tried to get anyone in the next day so that at least our last night was comfortable. I really like this property so I am sad this happened because I would hesitate to stay again because of the air conditioning. I also read after returning home on a review of one of the other cottages that they had the same issue so I don't feel I can trust it was an isolated incident due to our being there during the holiday season.
Dear Cindee, We want to take this opportunity to apologize for the AC issues that occurred during your stay. Because you stayed at the property over the Christmas holiday, we tried our best to accommodate you by moving to another unit. We regret our service fell short as we always want our guests to have a wonderful experience. This AC unit has since been replaced and we hope you will stay with us again. Thank you for your honest and valuable input. Jeff and Gina
Cute property, great location but we had issues.
The poperty is very cute an true to the pictures on the website. It is also in a great location. But we ran into a few issues. First the door lock is tricky. You need to pull hard towards you when waiting for it to unlock. It would be a good idea to put a note on the door to pull or put it in one of the instruction emails. Next when we finally got into the unit we found they had repaired a wall hole and left the drywall scraps, a tool and a mess on the floor by the repair.Finally, our air conditioning never worked. We didn't really notice the first couple days becuase it was cooler out. But once we started getting 80 degree days and tried to adjust it, once of them was making terible noises and niether was blowing cool air. Our cottage never got below 77 degrees and it was very humid/sticky in there. We were told no maintenace was available that day (Saturday) and offered a new unit at a differnet property. We did not take it becuase it was miles away from our John's Pass, smaller then the unit we paid for and we really did not want to pick up and move all our stuff with only a couple nights left. We never heard from management again. We thought they might still try to find someone to fix it on Sunday.
Dear Cindee, We are glad you enjoyed the property and location. With that said, we are terribly sorry about the AC issue and miscommunication on our part. We appreciate the honest feedback and hope we can host you again. For future travelers, this AC system has been replaced since this review. Jeff and Gina
