Some pros and quite a few cons
Michelle is lovely to communicate with and responded quickly. She also accommodated and early check in for me and a late check out (with a minimal fee)
The house is in a great location if you want to walk to town or down to the public park with a small beach.
The house is quite gross/dirty and very poorly stocked if you plan to cook and eat there. The smell of musty carpet permeates the house - if you are sensitive to smells, it’s a problem.
No wine glasses or any short glasses to use as wine glasses.
No large mixing bowls or serving bowls
Very dangerously chipped glass plate and bowls
4 forks total!
Very dirty. Very!
Bugs in all window sills
Strong odor from carpet
Stains on sheets and carpets and shower curtain
Food on dishes - everything had to be washed prior to using
Dish tray - disgusting and had to be scrubbed down
Dish brush had food left in it from former renters
Fridge and freezer - gross
Light in laundry room out
Grill - very gross and not cleaned. Brush was so dirty it couldn’t clean the grates well
Screen in bathroom is ripped, allowing bugs in if that window is open
Everything with in walking distance.
Charming Old House
Rent this every year - we feel at home there. Place just needs a little loving care, good overall cleaning. Yard could use some work but the location is great!
Great small vacation spot.
Compared to the other cottages on this property, this building has not been remodeled inside. This makes it a very serviceable space, but not as luxurious as Mama Bear and Papa Bear.
House needs better maintenance and manager!
Dated and run down place. Could definitely use some updating. We rented it through VRBO for the weekend. Sierra, the orientation lady didn’t show up for the appointment. When I called her after 15 mins, she was very casual about it. She said something came up. She should have texted about it. I have seen other similar reviews.
Overall, the house needs dusting and cleaning. The freezer was disgusting and we ended up not using it. Comforters and pillows were old, stained and lumpy. They tried updating the living room by putting some new couches but would have rather had better bed rooms.
Also, in the ad, it says walkable to beach...which is not entirely true. The closest beach on 150th street was muddy, so technically it was not a beach. we had to drive down to south side for beach access.
I won’t recommend this place for the price. You could better book a room or cabin in ideal beach or blue water resort for cheaper with private beach access.
