“great getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My husband and I just stayed here for a 3 day weekend. In our opinion, this place is perfect. All the comforts and conveniences of home are here! We are planning our next stay here to enjoy fishing on the dock and watching the dolphin in the canal.

“Everything we needed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Just got back from renting this property. We stayed for four nights, and we did not have to worry about packing all the "travel extras", having traveled from New England. The pictures and descriptions are accurate, except there is no motorboat included. The picture shows one as well as in the included list. No big deal for us. I guess if it was there we would have used it, but was not our reason for renting. The cottage is clean and well equipped. Although we only ate breakfast at the cottage, it appeared that there was PLENTY of kitchen items for all meals. The time we were at the cottage we spent on the deck. It is a real bonus. However, again, the pictures do show all the "clutter". Lots of chairs, tables, "bric-brac" that gives you a cluttered feeling. For me, less would have been more, however, my husband and our local guests thought it was "funky". Different strokes....
Any questions I had right before we arrived and while we were there were quickly answered. This cottage is located in an older neighborhood along the canals. Many homes in better shape, and some not so good. Safe neighborhood, all ages. Our friends lived approx. 2 miles away, and we did not rent a car so some days/nights we walked to and fro, and never worried. Close to some great places to eat (breakfast,lunch, dinner, and ice cream), small local beach, and the wonderful gulf. Come on down, you will love it! I am the first Trip Advisor review, however, there are many more on VRBO. Check them out.

Liked least: The clutter on the deck, and the yard needed some maintenance

Thank you for your kind review. After reading your review I just want to point out a couple of things so our future guest would not misunderstood about the motorboat. The picture shows a pontoon boat basically to show our guest that a big boat can dock here. If you click on the photo it will have the caption "Bring your own boat and dock it here" and in the list that said Motor Boat, if you put the cursor over the "[?]", it will pop out a message "One paddle boat with trolling motor". The trolling motor is in the laundry room. Thank you for pointing this out, now our guest will know. We do have guests that stayed here a month or two, have friends, families and grandkids over, and for that reasons we put more tables and chairs so they can be comfortable and have a good time. Once again thank you very much for keeping our place clean and we really appreciate your review.
