Location! Location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved being so close to the beach in our little cottage. It was comfortable and cozy and we could see the water from inside. However just a small investment in such things as new window shades etc would give a big impression of being better cared for and a more pleasing interior.

This Cottage Needs an Upgrade

  • 3 of 5

My wife an I rented this cottage in June for an anniversary. The best quality of this cottage is the location to the beach. Very nice location. Everything else about tis unit was adequate or below. Most of the beach chairs available need to be thrown away, and I would suggest they be replace every two years (since they are so cheap to purchase). Ditto with the umbrella. The kitchen was really bad and just plain "crummy" looking. It all just seemed old, outdated and unappealing. The bed was comfortable, but the headboard to the bed was oversized and looked cheesy. The "tube" TV (yes, an actual tube TV) in the bedroom should be replaced with a flat screen or thrown away. Some of the blinds throughout need to be replaced and do not work properly. Cheap wicker chairs in the living area are not worth keeping either. The tub squeaks incessantly when showering. I assume it isn't supported underneath the bottom of the tub.

We will try another unit at White Caps in the future, but not #1.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we appreciate the feedback. White Caps 1 has continued to be updated on a regular basis. Flat screen TV's have been in the living room and bedroom since late 2015. A new mattress, box spring and bedding was added in 2016. New living room chairs were added in January 2016. Beach chairs are replaced several times each year as the proximity to the gulf/salt air leads to rust and corrosion. Interior painting has added additional color to the cottage. We hope these continual updates provide a great experience for our guests !

Adorable Cottage but beware of bed!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for two weeks. This is the third time staying at White Cap Cottages, first time in Cottage #1. We love how close you are to the beach and the cottage is perfect for two people. We brought our two small dogs and they loved the beach! The only downfall is the queen size bed. The mattress needs to be replaced. The silverware had rust on it but after emailing the vacation rental office they prompted responded that they will buy new silverware. All in all it was a great vacation!

Excellent location.

We had a wonderful time here. Right by the beach. Very close to bike baths and many activities. This was the place for us to relax away from our busy lives. Will be back next year. Thanks all!

This cozy, florida/beach themed, private property directly faces the gulf from the living room and enclosed screened porch which is a really, really nice feature as compared to other properties who don't have the direct gulf view unless you step outside of the cottage. The enclosed screened porch has chairs and a table to enjoy the view. There is no outside shower to wash off of the sand prior to stepping inside the cottage, so have your water buckets ready to wash off outside before your step inside the cottage of they will be sand everywhere. A big plus as that cottage has direct, private beach access and the beach is kept really clean.
