Reviewer Comments:

This little cottage provided us with a good amount of space for a week while we were dealing with family responsibilities. The cottage is strangely laid out. The kitchen is tiny with limited counter space (mostly covered with a large microwave) and a really tiny refrigerator (dorm size) To make the kitchen usable, bring the table in from the deck and move the microwave to it. There is a table in the kitchen where we ate and used for extra food preparation space. Otherwise, there is a small living room area, two very generous sized bedrooms, on small bathroom, and what would be a very useful sitting/work room off the master bedroom, except that it has a hot tub sitting right in the middle of it! This is in addition to the very nice hot tub on the deck. The master bed mattress is in fairly good shape, except that it needs a topper to moderate the firmness a bit. The cleaning crew prepping the cottage for us left a note warning about a minor leak in the kitchen sink faucet. Tara Property Management did not get a plumber out to check it for almost a week. It could not be repaired and had not been replaced yet when we left. Tara Properties also needs to rearrange their getting into the property instructions. The bottom key lock needs to unlocked BEFORE you try to make the somewhat weird pushbutton lock work. Once we finally got it to work (including a code number change), we just depended on the key lock. The cottage would have a good view of the lagoon IF someone would bother to trim the brush that blocks the view from the cottage.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we had a nice time. The cabin is very private and quiet with a nice view of a lagoon. There was plenty of room and the fireplace was nice! However there is a very large but. Neither of us were at all happy that the landscaper started working at 8am. We were ASLEEP. We chose this location because it was quiet and private. It was not pleasant in any way to wake up to someone walking by our open window blasting weed eaters, blowers and lawnmowers. Our last chance for some quiet relaxing time before we had to checkout was gone. We discovered after he left that our car was covered in lawn debris and leaves. Lesson learned, inquire about landscaper schedule when renting.

Reviewer Comments:

The best thing I have to say about the property is that the water pressure in the shower is great if you use the massage setting. Property needs a LOT of repairs and upkeep and updates! We were very fortunate to only have to sleep and shower there since we were on the island for a wedding.
