Beautiful Cottage in a private setting!

Brought my blended family to stay here. The cottage was perfect for us. We had a wonderful time. The owner was in contact with us constantly with info we needed always. Will love to book this property again in the future.

Cottage was dirty upon arrival, no cleaning behind furniture,, lawn atrocious

  • 3 of 5

Upon checking in there was sand on the floor, dead bugs behind furniture. Our booking was done incorrectly, resulting in our having to get packed up and everything on the porch, as well as belting our two puppies in their car seats until we could pack our car and leave. I told Mr. Lucas our stay would by thru Saturday with departure on Sunday. I did fail to check the confirmation paperwork which was my mistake.

We were misled my Michael Lucas how far the North Beach was located to Berthas' Cottage.

Mr. Lucas called the police on us who arrived when all of our luggage, etc was on the back porch for loading. 4 cops showed up, and they were very nice to us, but not happy with whoever called them. 4 big cops called on 2 60 YR do women with 2 puppies. Mr Lucas did have his housekeeping staff retrieve a painting which had been painted and given to me by my daughter and a sound machine and had mailed back to me after I sent a $50 check to. Him. No one mailed the lawn halfway thru the week so we were walking the puppies in high grass and bugs. My husband and I spent the first 10 yrs of our marriage living on Wilmington Island, and I was so excited to go back to spend a week. I can honestly say if I do ever go back, I will never stay anyplace where Michael Lucas is the owner. That last Saturday night was very important as were going to dinner with a good friend, who he and his wife lived across the street and were best friends. My friend Deb dies from breast cancer and he had re-married and. I was getting to meet her. We did not even want to stay after being humiliated by having the police called on us and some rude man over house keeping yelling at us, as I was trying to let him know I had booked the place one. More night! So, so, very rude. I was lead to believe this cottage was close walking distance to the beach, which was a lie. Pretty unhappy with these accommodations and how we were treated. I melted down and said " we just cant leave today" as upset not getting to see Ron. Rude man from housekeeping (supervisor) was cold, and not caring. Never again.

Quick weekend fishing trip to Tybee house worked out pretty good.

  • 3 of 5

The house was very nice. The cleaning service wasn't done by the 4 pm check in time but they allowed us to check in while they finished. I think it's more suitable as a four to six person group or single family. It's nicely placed on the quiet north end of Tybee. Solomon Ave. is dirt road and you have to look for the house or you will drive passed it. But it was looks better in person the on the pictures. The covered patio was nice in the evenings. I am not happy the the price was wrong on the HomeAway.com website. The rental was actually $175 a night plus the cleaning fees and taxes.

Bertha's Cottage

  • 2 of 5

The house itself was nice. Exactly what I had in mind for a weekend getaway with immediate family. Our check in time was 4 pm on a Thursday. As of 4:30 pm we had yet to receive any information for check-in. I emailed the owner of the cottage who had previously replied quickly to other questions. After no reply, we called the help center for VRBO.com and were able to get a phone number for who I assume is the property manager. Thankfully he answered on the first ring and we were able to get in the house by 5:30 pm. Upon entering the house we discovered that the sheets on every single bed were dirty (hair, crumbs, etc. left behind). The freezer and fridge were clearly not cleaned, the floors were filthy. We paid what I consider a MORE than appropriate amount of money for this weekend stay which included cleaning fees. To be delayed entrance to the house and then find it in less than stellar shape is very disappointing. All of these problems were reported to the property manager, who took care of them immediately, however, it caused a huge inconvenience to our short stay.
