About Cathy White

I have always loved the Mountains of Sapphire Valley/Cashiers. I grew up spending my summers here, as we looked for escape from the South Florida heat. I am so excited to now have a home here and am thrilled to be able to share it with you through VRBO. Our hope is that you will come and spend time here, enjoying the comforts of our home, while making your own wonderful memories of time spent here in this mountain paradise!

                                                                      My wife and I, and two of our college aged children, had a great four day vacation in Cashiers, thanks in large part to the Bear's Nest. It was an outstanding place to stay! We loved the mountain decor. It was totally charming. Everything was clean and neat and well kept. No hidden surprises. The unit was well furnished and had everything you need for a great vacation stay. Communication with the owner was very easy, which was much appreciated, and they had coffee and goodies waiting for us. We enjoyed coffee on the deck, hiking around the lake, fly fishing and dining and shopping in Cashiers. I would recommend the Bear's Nest to anyone. We hope to come back next year.

                                                                      VIRGIL D.

                                                                      Your description of the 'spectacular view' is spot on. The townhouse is starting to show it's age-It took us a while to settle in- Kitchen had grease everywhere-We cleaned so that we would be able to comfortably enjoy breakfast & a few meals. Carpeting throughout the house could use a good cleanup. Suggest you find a new cleaning crew. The contact person that was supposed to be there for us was preoccupied with his other work & we felt as though we were bothering him. (he did leave us Solar Eclipse glasses-that was great) Your binder with info on "what's going on in the area" was chock full of helpful hints. The Sapphire amenity cards were a good thing to have. (took us a while to find where to pick them up)-Scott wasn't too sure of which office to go to. The icing on the cake, Cathy, was having the power company turning off all electricity to the house on the day before we left, for non-payment. If I didn't go outside & flag the woman down-At the same time calling Scott (who explained to me that he has nothing to do with 'bill paying') We had to have her get on the phone with Scott & after explaining that this was not acceptable, she finally agreed to turn the power back on. All toll, very disappointing! The DeOliveiras - Mary & Virgil

                                                                      Virgil and Mary,

                                                                      I am beyond shocked at your review and extremely sorry for your dissapointment. If your read all of our other reviews, you will find that everyone has been exceedingly happy with every single aspect of our home. I will immediately have a discussion with our property manager about your concerns. I have gone "as a guest" to our place, not letting our property manager know that it was us coming, so I could see first hand how things were being upkept and cleaned for new guests. I was very satisfied with what I found.

                                                                      As for the power being turned off, we called the electric company as soon as we heard there was a problem. The representative we spoke to could not explain how it happened, but somehow they had discontinued our account number and assigned us a new account number. Our account is set up for automatic withdrawal and the bank information did not transfer to the new account number.

                                                                      If you would call me or email me I would like to offer you some small token for your troubles and try to rectify your dissatisfaction.

                                                                      Rest assured future guests will not have this opinion of The Best's Nest.

                                                                      Peace & quiet you normally can't find in a July/Aug vacation-

                                                                      We're already discussing when will be our next BEARSNEST visit-
