We spent one week here and would return in a heartbeat! The cottage is beautifully maintained and had everything we needed for our stay. By far the cleanest rental we've ever stayed in! The front porch allowed for us to spend so much more time outside because of the shade. We were so close to the beach which we loved. Our teenage son was even impressed with this cottage. Joey and her husband were very attentive during the rental process.

Many issues added up to a stressful vacation

  • 2 of 5

The correspondence with the owners during booking was easy. Joey even permitted us to bring our three terriers (adult, well-behaved) since we made it clear that they're our "furbabies" and we take them on all vacations. The property itself is lovely. I've never been in a more well-appointed rental. However, it got weird very quickly. After our 12 hour drive, we couldn't wait to let the pups walk on the beach (on a leash). We were met with "NO DOGS ON THE BEACH!" by several onlookers. I've heard of dogs only being allowed if they're on leashes - but Indian Shores is a NO DOG AT ALL area. We were heartbroken. I Googled for the information beforehand and it wasn't mentioned anywhere. I felt the owner, having understood how important it was for our dogs to come could have been forthcoming with this information. I called her that evening and received no response.

The first morning after our arrival, I woke up at 6am to let the dogs do their business in the little sandy area outside the cottage. My husband came with me. The door, which has an electronic keypad was left in the 'unlocked' position. We turned around and realized the door was locked. Neither of us had locked it. We scrambled to figure out what to do and wound up at the local coffee shop. We called a locksmith and about 5 hours and $175 (they refunded this after we returned home) later, we were back in the rental. The locksmith told us the lock malfunctioned because it is being used in beach conditions. We did not hear from the owners until 10pm that evening. When I finally spoke with the owner's husband, he told me I was not using the lock properly. My point is, he was argumentative. To his guest.

After that, we tried to relax, but started noticing cameras everywhere. There are two or three cameras mounted on the front porch which, if you can't take your dogs on the beach, you'll spend a good amount of time sitting in the porch area with them. After a few days, we decided to use the gas grill...an hour later, the owner calls to ask if I've used the grill. Isn't that strange? It was thing after thing at this place...we will not rent from Joey again.

Cute ocean front cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place - a few yards to the beach, perfect for long walks or any other beach activity. Home is well appointed with modern appliances - bathroom is efficient in a small space. Beds are very comfortable. Walkable to a coffee shop and Salt Rock Grille. Very cute - would come back if we have the opportunity!

Perfect for what we wanted.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cozy cottage right on the beach. Our expectations were exceeded in every way with this place. Great customer service; there was a problem with the A/C when we arrived and the owners had it fixed before we could get back from lunch. The owners have done a great job decorating and making sure this cottage is as nice as it can be. I'm a cook and I loved this kitchen. The profile pictures don't do this place justice. We couldn't have been more pleased!

PERFECT in every way

  • 5 of 5

We just left and will definitely return. LOVED the direct beach access right out the door. Cottage was adorable. High end furnishings. Already missing it. Ate at GUPPIES and that was amazing.

A Sea Side Treasure

  • 5 of 5

Words can not describe how wonderful this beach cottage is. It was impeccably decorated and everything was immaculate. Joey is so caring. She made every detail of booking so simple. From her speedy answers to emails to suggestions about the area, she was the perfect host. The beach is just footsteps from the door and it felt like our own private beach. I can not wait to go back next year and enjoy this jewel of a beach cottage. Thanks so much Joey for making our stay so special.
