Not happy

  • 1 of 5

deposit placed weeks in advance.Was reminded to pay in full a week in advance with a hurricane approaching the area.Payment was made by agreed deadline ,but no check in instructions were given until verbal contact was made with the owner 1-2 hours before check in time.Bed was really uncomfortable and shower was not draining properly.I attributed this to excessive rainfall.After leaving I had to verbally contact owner after a 10 day interval to get my deposit returned .Accomadations and owner responses marginal @ best

Owner's Response: Donna, I sincerely apologize for the delays that you experienced. I take great pride in proving high quality customer service to each of my guests. Unfortunately, Hurricane Hermine hit my residence in Tallahassee on September 1st. With the power and internet connectivity loss it did take a week for me to recover and get back to normal operations. I am thankful that Mexico Beach was on the west side of the eye where the effects were minimal, allowing you to enjoy your trip without cancelation or delay. Again, I apologize for the delay in response. Sincerely, Kim

Peaceful perfect Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our beach adventure! It had plenty of room for my family of 4, plus it was clean. It was a great location for us to be able to drive and spend our days at Crooked Island. Really enjoyed our stay!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was exactly as described and was a cozy stay in a quiet campground. Kim was very prompt in responding to all requests and she made the entire reservation process go very smoothly. This was my first reservation with vrbo and I'm very pleased with the whole experience!

Owner's Response: I am so glad the rental process was a breeze and that you enjoyed the cabin! I love the seclusion while still enjoying close proximity to the powder white sands of the gulf. Mexico Beach is my favorite get away, I am so happy that you enjoyed it also!

Cozy and good location

  • 4 of 5

We were happy to find a cabin in a central location that accepted dogs. There was ample parking, the campground friendly, clean, and fairly quiet. The cabin decor was both functional and attractive. The kitchen and bathroom were clean, modern and the queen bed comfy. The kitchen was stocked full of various appliances. The reclining loveseat was very comfortable to watch the flat screen tv. Minor complaints were sporadic wifi except at the office and lots of dust in the cabin. The cabin is 2 km from the main beach (which does not allow dogs). We had access to miles of pristine dog friendly beaches just beyond the city limits. Our host Kim was very easy to deal with and we liked it so much that we hope to return in years to come.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed the cabin and the campground. The cabin is 2km from the beach on the main road, but only .31km on the back roads provided in the check-in instructions. The panhandle beaches are beautiful and Mexico Beach is a great little beach town surrounded by miles and miles of white sand. I am so happy you found the cabin comfortable and well equipped and I look forward to your next visit.

Weekend Getawayers

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely wonderful for my wife and I's weekend getaway. It was nice to be able to sit on the screened porch and enjoy the Fall weather as well as listen to Randy and Art make music. We really enjoyed our stay and have already been talking about when we could go back in the future.
