Disappointed and surprised by red tide
We came from a different state not aware of a severe red tide that was enveloping the area with a rotten fish smell (no one’s fault). The place could have used a deep clean - the kitchen chair pads were stained and some of the dishes were not sparkling clean. We cut our stay short as we came for the beach and with a severe red tide, could not enjoy it. Officials warn that symptoms of the red tide include coughing and throat irritation and instruct those with asthma and respiratory issues to stay inside, as it can make you sick. We did communicate with the owner who refunded our money quickly, although it takes 5-7 days to process. Would have saved us more money, hassle and discomfort if we had been made aware of the environs before arriving.
I am so sorry that you were disappointed! You are absolutely correct that red tide is nasty stuff- but it is a natural occurrence and can change from day to day. Different people react in different ways to it as well. When you contacted me, late in the evening, I absolutely was willing to work with you to refund your money. I didn’t even charge you for the night you did decide to stay. Had you contacted me earlier in the day, you would had have had no charges whatsoever. Not sure how you could have saved money, since you stayed for free except for a cleaning fee (which had to be charged since you spent the night). Yours is the first complaint I have had about the cleanliness. I will address this issue right away. I am surprised you didn’t mention it when we spoke.
Great place and close to everything
My girlfriend and myself along with our small dog Ty stayed in the studio for a week recently. The studio was clean and roomy and we really enjoyed stay there. It was close to everything like beach and state park and everybody seem very friendly. Even free golf cart shuttle to bars restaurants or even store! Was close drive to surrounding areas of interest. Would definitely stay again!!!!
Everything was amazing
Great location, place was clean and easy to get everything you needed
Loved the closeness to the ocean. House was immaculate. Perfect vacation. Will be back.
Everything we needed including the beach accessories was available. Grilled out with friends from port Charlotte and played games. Had a small issue with the step up to the kitchen but solved that with a red rug. A/C kept us cool. Adequate sleeping accommodations rounded out a great vacation week
Our family would highly recommend this rental. Thanks so much!
Cute and Cozy Coastal Cottage steps to the beach and spectacular sunsets!
From booking to arrival to sunning on the beach to sunsets at night and all the way to departure....this cute coastal cottage (convenient to the beach) surpassed our expectations. It is convienent, cozy, and quiet (even with it sharing a wall next door—-the other renters were so quiet!). The beds were very comfortable. Kitchen was equipped with the essentials. It was very clean and fresh upon arrival. Having a washer and dryer was so nice! The air conditioning worked so well and was so quiet! It really was a few steps to the beach and a very very short walk to Stump Pass Park which is absolutely incredible with Lemon Bay on the left and the beach on the right and a sandy trail of trees in between. You can kyack, jet ski, boat, fish, sunbathe, swim.....you can do it all steps from this property. The water is so beautiful in Manasota Key. It is a very family oriented beach area....and we were there during our Spring Break. We saw gorgeous sunsets every night! We saw manatees one day come up near the beach. We cooked in the cottage on most nights (grocery stores are not too far away and were very reasonable and well stocked like home). They even had a grill...I noticed the other renters next door grilling. Maybe next time we will try more restaurants. We ate one time on the island and one night we drive to Punta Gorda—a little seaside town nearby for dinner. It was worth the drive. It was so nice to have an outdoor shower to get the sand off before entering the cottage. The beach cart and chairs were great! We love the sun...so we did not use the umbrella...but they had one! WiFi worked fantastically! We never turned on the nice tv because WiFi worked so well—-we used our iPad to watch Netflix and Hulu all week! My daughter and I had the best week together. She is a senior in high school and this vacation was exactly what we had hoped it would be from the accomodations-to the weather-to the beach. Thank you for making such a welcoming home to travelers and beach lovers! We hope to be back again! This was the best deal I have ever had in a beach location!
Cozy/clean/great location/surf sounds !!!
