Very nice house. The only real problems were that the downstairs window unit does not blow cold air. UnFortunatly our other 2 guest end up backing out so the downstairs unit was not used very much. Upstairs the A/C is program to set no lower than 70. My wife and I are hot natured and could not keep the house cool enough for us, especially at night. The outside temp was in the mid to upper 80s. The box fan they provide for the house is what kept us from calling in to fix A/C. Other than that, we had a great weekend and we really like the under water lights to view the fish at night
Thanks Chuck, we think it's a nice place too! Glad to hear you had a great weekend with some fun night fishing! As for the A/C, we'll take a look into that. All seemed to be working when we checked the house right before your stay. Perhaps, it somehow got set to 'economy' mode. In the future, please don't hesitate to give us a call, shoot us a text, etc during your stay. We promise we don't mind, we're here to help.
At first I was a little disappointed. I thought there would have been a separate bathroom for me and the hubby since the description showed there were two. There are two, but the second is down below with utility room and you have to go outside to get to it. The outdoor deck made up for it though! Not a lot of privacy in the upper house. When we first arrived we could not get the exterior lights to come on which made it really hard to navigate around the dock and my mom fell. We called the owner the next day and they were quick to come out and unlock a door that controlled the lights so we could see to fish the remainder of our stay. We had a fantastic time once we got all the kinks worked out. I would recommend this property. The only other thing is the property is pretty small. We have stayed at other properties in the same neighborhood that were larger for less money. Decorated super cute too.
Thanks for taking time to write such a thorough review on one of our latest vacation rental additions. We truly hope you and your group enjoyed your extended holiday weekend getaway! Appreciate you choosing one of our homes! Regarding the 2 separate bath locations, we do have a section in our all home descriptions for exactly that - sleep/bath configuration. We try to be very upfront, as we know each home we represent is truly unique and different things appeal to different Guests. In this case, it states "~ 2nd full bath on lower level next to laundry & game room, separate access from main area." Perhaps we can adjust the wording a bit to make even more clear. Appreciate your feedback.
This home was very comfortable for 2 couples and a toddler. Watching fish swim over the canal lights at dusk from the expansive deck was a real pleasure. Parked my boat in the the boat slip which made for easy bay access for fishing in the morning, plus a short walk from the house to fish a large canal during the out going tide was really fun. Trout city! Wive(s)and kid enjoyed the park a short stroll away. Overall we all really enjoyed our 4 night stay. Price is also attractive enough for us to come down again as just one family! Looking to book another weekend here soon!
Delighted you so thoroughly enjoyed your stay and took advantage of all the activities available at our home! We'd love to have you back again!
Brought our boat and used the available slip, super simple. We thoroughly enjoyed the plentiful outdoor spaces incl massive deck overlooking the canal and lower area with fishing lights and cool tiki bar. Inside is clean, tidy and comfortable. Wish the weather would have been a bit warmer, although it is Feb.
Delighted to hear you got to take advantage of the unique outdoor benefits and activities available at this home despite the cooler temps. Also, thanks for taking good care of our home during your stay. Please come back again!
