Guestbook comments from the owner

Edie was a great host from beginning to check out. We visited Yellowbird during Thanksgiving, and it was like a home away from home. We had everything we needed and more to accommodate our 10 family members and prepare a huge meal. If we forgot anything, Edie was so gracious to think of the small details i.e. rolling pin. She even extended herself in the event we needed anything for the duration of our stay. The house was clean and location was beyond our expectations. We were steps from the beach and water. Awesome all the way around!

Thank you Mr. Jacobs for sharing this home. Best vacation ever! If we go again next year, I would love to stay here again. Very clean and well cared for home. I hope anyone who stays here will take good care of it while there. Thanks for the use of floats in the bottom storage room.

Very Close To The Beach And Away From The Condo Madness

  • 3 of 5

Overall, not too bad. Very roomy but a few things that we noticed and things that happened.

Front door lock broke. We had to tape it so we wouldn't get locked out.

Found 20 or so nails on the ground and driveway. Fortunately not flat tires or injuries.

Saw several LARGE cock roaches in the kitchen area.

The bed in the downstairs bedroom VERY squeaky.

Upstairs bedroom facing southwest stayed on the warm side.

Needs floor mats at the front door. We had to put a towel down to keep the sand at a minimum.

Top of refrigerator was filthy.

New deck downstairs is nice. If the rest was concrete, would be very nice.

New grill very nice. Never did find the chain to lock it.

Overall I would give it a B - B-

Thanks

Owner's Response: We strive to make each of our guest feel welcome and to have a 5 star experience. Up to this point we have not had a guest that we could not work with to civilly resolve any issues at hand in a timely manner. We believe this is evident by the previous ratings of our visitors for this property and our other property as well. We normally use guest reviews as a constructive avenue to make necessary changes and possible upgrades. We generally respond to any items mentioned in a review that might have been a major issue of concern to let future guest know how that issue has been addressed. In this case, each of these issues were minor and were addressed in a timely manor. We hope that future guest will come to visit with the intent of enjoying their stay and not arrive with the intent of posting exaggerated minor issues. Our customer service is our top priority but unfortunately we can not please everyone all of the time...

We enjoyed our stay at Yellowbird. Everything was nice and clean, plenty of space for our group of 10. Lots of dishes, linens, silverware. Blender works great, we used it to make milkshakes :) Just steps to the ocean! Theres a couple of restaurants pretty close by, Sassy Bass was great! Wasnt highly impressed with Tacky Jack's We will definitely be staying here again!

Relaxing time at Yellow Bird

  • 5 of 5

It really does feel right on the beach. There are a couple of buildings a teeny bit in the way of your view, but from anywhere in the house you can see and hear plenty of ocean surf. It's a comfortable, spacious place, relaxing as it gets, not commercial-feeling, really pretty beach. Mellow people all around. The owners are great people, too, really dependable and communicative. I recommend this house for multi-generational family visits, which is how we experienced it. A nice big gathering area for everyone, right when you come in. Go Yellow Bird!
