Great house, unhappy locals...
This property was great, all it claimed to be.
However, be advised there are a number of local residents who live in the neighborhood that do not appreciate the vacationing visitors and will call the police on anything they don't agree with...
Let me explain, this neighborhood apparently has a set of un-posted rules that they use to summon the local police, sheriff and constable in short order. The secret rule we had issue with is that anything considered to be a golf cart is ok to drive in the neighborhood, but no side-by-sides AT ALL. They want you to trailer your (much safer than a golf cart) side-by-side and haul it to the beach, which is a block away... But you can over pack golf carts with drunks and that is acceptable somehow... Even on the Beach they will pull over anyone they deem to be below driving age to tell them to park it and walk back to the rental property, even if they are just young teenage girls!
It is like there is a disgruntled HOA hawk sitting around with binoculars and a cell phone with law enforcement on speed-dial!
It was clear that the officers did not want to be chasing down HOA rule breakers, but they did, no tickets though. At one time I counted 6 separate cop vehicles on patrol in this small neighborhood... My advice is try a different neighborhood or be ok with the hiding locals spying on you watching for any violation of their secret rules...
Sorry about the issues you had. Our company has posted golf cart/atv rules on our website.
Great beach house, but disappointed in having to provide (or pay extra) for basic items
This beach house is just awesome! It is beautifully finished and decorated - has internet and satellite tv, plenty of beds (and they are comfy enough) if you are wanting a houseful, a GREAT kitchen and dining area with nice appliances and even an outdoor barbecue you can use, really great upper deck and area on the ground floor with beautiful new wood furniture, nice stacked washer and dryer. So why not 5 stars? Because the management company is so cheap that they don't provide toilet paper or even bar soap for the showers - really? For $300-350 a night? Oh, and if you don't want to cart sheets and towels with you, plan on paying an extra $100 for subpar linens that are stored in plastic tubs and have a weird smell. We were told that it is standard for this area to have to pay extra for bed sheets and towels (NOT beach towels - just towels - don't forget to bring your beach towels, too!) and maybe that is true but if so, it is truly disappointing. Again, the house itself is just GREAT - nice, quiet subdivision with very nice neighbors, within walking distance to the beach (don't forget to bring beach chairs!). We've just never stayed at a beach property anywhere in the U.S. that charges you extra for bed sheets and bath towels and doesn't provide toilet paper and soap. I can't help but wonder if the homeowners know that this is going on?
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry that you were disappointed with our not providing linens; however, we are able to keep our prices competitive because twe give the tenants the option of bringing their own.
Beach Lovers Getaway.
Enjoyed ourselves immensely. Real comfortable house very neat and clean, couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. Very close to the beach. Lovely accommodations thank you. Will be back.
Best rental on Crystal Beach!!!
Fish tale flats is by far the best beach house we have stayed at on Crystal Beach hands down! Its new, immaculate, open, and spacious. There were 5 of staying there and has plenty of space for more. The decor is gorgeous and relaxing with its warm beach tones. We will not stay anywhere else when we head to Crystal Beach again. We have found our perfect vacation home!!
Thanks. Come visit us again.
