When I came online to write a review I was shocked that two other people were that disappointed with their stay. I don’t know if the other reviewers have ever rented a vacation rental before-but usually homeowners do not put their prized possessions/exquisite furniture in the home because of the costly damage done by renters. We had children with us and I was glad we didn’t have to worry about breaking an expensive vase.
I wasn’t disappointed at all with our stay at the Canary Cottage. The price of a room next door at the Lodge (with the same ocean view) is $965/night. For $1600/night we were able to rent this house with 6 bedrooms in the main house and two small cottages (what a deal!). This was great for our getaway with friends. The large main room was great for hanging out and late night chatting (especially after the kids went to bed). We enjoyed eating our breakfast on the large deck-the view was breath-taking. The property is very large and we enjoyed seeing the deer in the late evenings. The kitchen has two refrigerators, and lots of dishes/pots/pans etc. It was also nice having access to a washing machine and dryer (I washed all of our clothes before we headed home-no dirty laundry after our late flight).
We always look for vacation rental homes when we travel because it is usually a bargain when compared to the hotels. The accommodations were what we expected-we read the description from the website and viewed the photos and got exactly what we saw/read. If you are looking for a luxury hotel than pay the $965/night ocean view rooms at the lodge. If you are looking for a great deal on the same view than I highly suggest renting the Canary Cottage. This house would be great for a family reunion or large get-together with friends.
