Nice for the price.

  • 4 of 5

The only things were the gulf cart. Lights didn’t work and no air pump for the front drivers side tire that needs replacing. We got our own air pump and used the flashlight on our phones when we wanted to go at night. It was a fun experience. The screen on the screen in porch needs to be fixed, but the porch was where we spent most of our time. Luckily not to many mosquitoes out. Very quite and relaxing .

My husband and I were gifted a romantic getaway and we found this spot on VRBO. There were some issues with viewing the site online prior to us going there (it was like the site had vanished, which made us nervous). But we were able to contact Robin and she sent pictures of the cabin as well as informed me of recent repairs made, stayed in contact with me, and made me feel comfortable about proceeding with our stay!

It is a perfect spot for two love birds to stay in and enjoy QT! This cabin is a diamond in the rough and we will definitely return in the future!

Nice for the price

It was a nice quite place with a lot of character and charm for the price. Could use update on couches and more secure door locks and slider needs replaced.

Cottage was quaint and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

Robin is a delight to rent from. We both had unforeseen issues the day of arrival. Her golf cart needed to have repairs but she rented one for our stay! One of our friends had to work later than expected and Robin said it was no problem on our arrival time! Everything was clean and organized and the beds were very comfortable. It was booked from the 2nd to the 4th for a lil' getaway for my b-day with a few friends but we wanted to stay another night. I called Robin and unfortunately other guests had already booked. Thanks Robin for such a lovely little place to relax and celebrate.

We had a number of complications that disrupted our ability to get to the cottage. But Robin did everything she could to minimize the damage. Thanks so much.

Great Weekend, Great Host

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend at this cottage. After initially booking, we had to change dates due to a family issue. The owner was really great to work with & everything went great. The cottage was exactly as described and we really enjoyed staying on the water for the weekend. Sitting out on the screened in porch & watching the sunrise was spectacular. The cottage had everything needed to make the weekend carefree.
