It was our 20th Anniversay and we were looking forward to a few days away. We love camping and staying in rustic syles places when we travel. The Seahorse cottages looked like a good optionl. Wrong!! There is a difference between rustic and dirty. These are quaint little cottages right on the beach. Great location. Four cottages face the beach. Knotty pine all inside. What a great place if someone gave it some TLC. There was an inch think dust and dirt in all the window sills. Old (I mean old) and dirty furniture. I tried to sweep the floor and the broom had so much hair and dirt on it I had to clean it before I even used it. There was a cute turtle made out of towels on the bed when we got there. I though the turtle had eyes until I got closer and realized it was a stain on the towel. The towels were so old and worn. Like "hello" Target $4.99???? We couldn't even eat at the kitchen table at night because the cord to the hanging light above was cut and hanging on a hook on the wall. Sitting outside by the Gazebo looking at the ocean seemed like a good idea until we looked down to find red ants all over our feet. These cottages could be a great place to stay if the owners would only take the time to give them a good cleaning. They are cheap enough to stay there but I wouldn't pay a penny to stay there again. Like I said old and rustic does not have to mean dirty. It's too bad because they could be something special.
