“My stay was OK.”
Reviewed June 7, 2012 for a stay in June 2012
person found this review helpful

My family and I just got back from our stay in Port Austin. My sister and neices just loved this beach and fell in love with it on first site. The house is wonderfully decorated, has wonderful views of Lake Huron and is cozy. In ALL the listings that I saw for this house on other websites ALL linens were to provided, a full kitchen and washer and dryer. Upon arriving and reading the house rules we could not use the washer and dryer, there was only 1 fry pan and no wash clothes when I went to shower. I might have high expectations when renting a beach home but I expect what i read in the posting and pay for to be available for use. The beach was beautiful but had you walk down a steep incline to get access to that isn't really clear in the posted pictures. My sister and neices would and do recommend this beach home wish to visit again. I however do not.

Thank you so much for you feedback -- we appreciate you taking the time to let us know about your stay, and welcome the opportunity to address some of the issues that you brought to our attention.

We are happy to hear that your family enjoyed the home, however we are, of course, disappointed to hear that you didn't feel the same way. I'd like to take some time to address your concerns.

I understand that you were unable to use the washer and dryer during your stay. This was due to an unfortunate temporary problem with the septic system, which was out of the control of the owner. We apologize that you weren't notified of the situation, but we do want to note that it is now repaired and will be available for use for future guests without problems.

Bed linens and bath towels are available at this home, however you are correct that there are no washcloths. We do want to note that the industry standard is ben linens and towels. The listing does not include information about washcloths, so we do suggest that future guests be sure to bring them if they are amenities they would like to use!

We are sorry to hear that you found the walk down to the beach to be a bit unmanageable. It does mention in the listing that the home is situated on a bluff above the beach. However, there are young children in the neighborhood who have no trouble navigating the path, so we didn't think it would be an issue for visitors. We sincerely apologize that you felt mislead.

Again, we apologize for the miscommunication about some of the amenities available, and we are sorry that you weren't thrilled with your experience at this beach cottage. Our hope is that travelers will always leave happy and refreshed after their stay here.

Please feel free to email me at jackie@evolvevacationrental.com if you would like to address any of your concerns further. Thanks again!
