We are a Swiss family that love the ocean. This beach front cottage is our second home.
We always dreamed of a beach front property, this is our dream come true!
We love going for long walks on the beach, especially at sunset and crescent beach has the most divine sunsets. We also enjoy watching dolphins, birds etc. Our children like the location, close to restaurants and bars. Fun location for young people.
Arrived 7:45 pm. No outside lights! Keypad. Wrong pass number! Had to call office. ! Standing outside with me 80 year old mom! Embarrassed! Holding cellphone light to type in new code!! So inside. Nice place clean. Comfy beds!! Go out to eat. Meet my son who is a student at FGCU. Have dinner come back! NO WATER! Call again. Hmmm construction from main road. Water shut off at the main valve!!! Ok!!! Wake up to make coffee! Not working. Rinse out. Major black moldy stuff come out. Call again. They are horrified! Go grocery shopping buy French press! Come back unload groceries. Make coffee and breakfast. Bathing suit on , go chat with umbrella guy! "Luke". Had 2 chaises need one more. and 2 umbrella. One for mom and one for deck! Oh did I mention windows and doors all sealed for our protection🙄But no outside lighting! The house inside was great. Had a great time! Luke was our saving grace! Knew where to shop for whatever and knew the right people ! A GEM!!! We ended with 4 umbrellas. Cushions and tables !! Shared coronas, dinner and laughs! Priceless! Bad start. Great ending! Property managers were fantastic. Great house needs TLC from owner and a lot of upgrades. Competition Is over the top and less expensive !
We spent 1 week in this updated, clean and perfectly located house on the beach. It was a wonderful location (less than 10 minutes to Times Square), and there was plenty to do. The chair and umbrella rentals next door were very convenient and the guys running it were more than accomodating!!! The Hooters behind us was without issue or much noise and the neighbors were all kind and friendly. We have found our new paradise!!!
Good: If you are just looking for a house on the beach/close to downtown, the house will meet your needs. The house has nice wood floors, a big kitchen, comfortable mattresses, & plenty of beach/bath towels.
Bad: When we arrived, the main side door key code was broken so to enter the house you had to use the back door. An email was sent to say it would be fixed in 1-2 days, but no one came. This wasn't a big deal except there was no outdoor lighting. We had to use our cell phone light to enter the code to open the door. You had to have the 9 digit code on you at all times if the door closed. We tried to change the code to something easier to remember (per instructions), but that didn't work either.
When we arrived, the tv did not work. We were on the phone with the cable provider for 45 minutes to get it to work. The cable provider stated the box was old & the cable package was the most basic of basic cable packages. We are big sports fans so not having ESPN/sports channels was a big disappointment. The owner did agree to pay for an updated package for the week, but the billing was complicated so we just decided it was easier to pay it ourselves. This may not be a big deal for some, but it was for us.
The beachfront "sliding" doors/windows DO NOT open at all. They are sealed shut. We were told this was for safety purposes. Then why is there no functional outdoor lighting for safety purposes?
There is a Hooters directly in back of the house. When we arrived, there were people hanging out in the parking lot, but it was quiet the rest of the week besides the loud early morning food/beer delivery trucks on several mornings.
Very few of the light switches were connected to the light fixtures. When we first entered the house, there was a broken toilet paper holder sitting on the table which doesn't make for a good first impression.
There is a beach chair rental place next door which was not pretty. At around 10AM every morning, the music came on. Luckily it was mostly 80s music which we like. However, at around 3PM, the music of Korn, Rob Zomby, etc came on. Some quiet time during the day on the deck listening to the ocean would have been nice.
Beach chairs are not provided. There were only broken tables under the house along with a dirty diaper found under one of them (not joking).
Some will feel this house is perfectly fine, but I wanted to let others know of our experience & just some of the issues we had with this house.
The house had the perfect location for our family. We could have not asked for better weather, mid 70s to low 80s all week! We loved the fact there was NO carpet in the house making the sand easier to vacuum up. It was nice to look out at the ocean as you were standing at the stove cooking. Louie's rental is right next door and willing to assist with chairs and umbrellas. Jet skis, banana boat, parasailing, etc., are all in front of the house. There are is a beer garden three doors down to the right, another a couple places down to the left. Hooters is literally behind you. The square is about a 10 minute or less walk, we enjoyed walking down for dinner then walking it off back to the house. Yucatans and Steamer's Oyster Brewery (SOB) were our two favorites.
Absolutely loved the beach house. It was sparkling clean and beautifully furnished. The views out on to the sea were just what we needed and the sunsets were amazing from the deck. We couldn't get any closer to the beach, the house is right on the sand and we had our own private piece of sand in front of the house that the chap from the sunbed hire kindly put two sunbeds and a sunshade there for us. Parking was great too, right at the side of the house. We could walk up the beach or the road and find restaurants and bars in both directions. All in all, we had a beautifully relaxing holiday. Thank you for having us.
Absoluetly gorgeous views of the Gulf from inside and out! Extremely clean and spacious. Great communication with owner. Would highly recommend this property to stay in!
