We spent a week in the 3 bedroom cottage. We needed to bring our hypo allergenic Siberian cat along, because she is a people cat and would have been a psycho cat if we had locked her up in a cage for a week in the kennel. I am allergic to most cats and dogs, so I was unsure if I wanted to stay in a place that allowed pets even though I own one, because the dust and dander make me sneeze badly. So when we walked into this place we were very happy to see wood floors, actually engineered wood floors to be precise, which provide a tighter fit so it is easy to clean. So no carpet for all the pet dander and fur to hide in. The flooring look very new too and I did not sneeze once the whole time I was there. Which is saying something for how clean the place is!
The inside of the cottage was very clean and nice looking. The bedding was decent too and clean. Even the covers were clean which in some places do not wash often if ever.
The kitchen has a microwave that works. And the stove worked, but the vent above it does not. Actually, the vent is the only thing I would criticize in the whole setup since there is no screen on it from the outside so the flies can and do come in. It took a couple of days for us to realize that is how they were getting into the place. This is the only reason I did not give it a 5. I should have mentioned this to the staff so they could fix it, but I forgot. Me bad.
The beach is a short 2-3 minute walk from the cottage. It was easy to cross the street to get to the beach access. There is no sidewalk on the street right there, but there is a bike path and parking lot across the street to walk on safely.
The beach was excellent. About 100 ft of dunes and 100 ft of sand before the water.
Parking was easy.
Tammy and David were very helpful and cheerful! And we did put David through some work. We had to replace a door lock to the front door. The sand/beach had destroyed it, and he had it replaced in a couple of hours of being told about it. So the staff is very responsive.
Overall a very enjoyable experience. And we plan on going back!
