Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely! The condo was beautiful and it was located right by the hot tub which made it easy for us to cook dinner while watching our kids in the pool. It was also easy to access the beaches that were about ten minutes away in Mexico beach. The water at the beach was perfect and the beaches were well kept. Also, I did not miss the traffic of Panama City or Destin. The only problem we had was that the cable was on the fritz. We also could not find the tv remote so we could not watch any DVDs. Thanks for the stay. We had a blast.

Definitely not a place for our family again.

  • 2 of 5

My husband and I rescue dogs. A friend of ours had posted on Facebook about three small dogs getting left behind in a rental property. The listing agent in Port St. Joe just so happened to find them and take them in, until she could found them a home. We choose to cancel our vacation trip to Orange Beach and make a trip to Port St. Joe to rescue these dogs. We arrived at the Cottages on a Sunday. Check in was 4:00 pm, so we already lost a day there. We brought our big fur baby a boxer (which was on my reservations) Wednesday evening we meet the lady with the dogs, brought them to our cottage. Keep them in a cage (because they were scared to death) only let them out to do their business. The neighbors beside us where residence (smoked all day on their porch and it smelled terrible walking by) and they called and complained twice that our dogs were using the bathroom everywhere and they were running around the entire community. Which was a complete lie because they were scared to even walk down the steps much less farther than our front porch. We always cleaned up after them. So on Thursday Elizabeth came to our condo, wasn't happy at all. Said she was going to charge us $150 fee for having them there. She didn't ask any neighbors around us if they had even seen our dogs or poop anywhere! Our reservations were to check out on Friday, upon loading the car the cleaning people showed up at 9:40am to clean! So we lost another day and had to rush out (with my 80 year old grandmother we brought with us)! Needless to say we will NEVER be back. I must say we absolutely loved it up until Thursday! We discussed coming back the following year and bring several family members but, how the way they handled it was uncalled for and not professional! There were people in the pool past time every single night, people drinking at the pool late at night, a lady screaming at her husband we could hear all the way in our room. But, we choose to put 3 small dogs ( all under 8lbs) in a crate for 24 hours and we were the bad guys!

Owner's Response: Hi Stephanie, Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of your stay at License to Chill. I am sorry to read that you were upset with the enforcement of our policies during your stay. Our pet policy is made very clear in the rental agreement and also in the guest information book located in the unit. There is a two dog maximum for this specific property, unless you have prior approval from the rental company. When the reservation was made, it was noted that only one dog would be on the premises. You took it upon yourself to add another three dogs without informing us and obtaining permission. Unfortunately, we only found out when we received complaints from two of the surrounding neighbors and followed up on those within the hour, talking to both you and them to quickly resolve the issue. Only during our investigation did you reveal to us the additional 3 dogs on the property. At no time prior to the complaints had you called and requested permission for the additional dogs. The rules and regulations are set in place for a reason and are followed so that our community and home can remain pet friendly. While I was at the property you never mentioned any issues with noise. If you had, I would have worked diligently to solve the issue as we are on call 24/7 and strive to make your vacation as enjoyable as possible. I apologize that you felt rushed when our cleaners arrived at 9:40 a.m. Check in is at 4:00 p.m. and check out is at 10:00 a.m. to allow us time to get in and prepare the unit for the next arriving guests. Sometimes our cleaners do arrive early, but only so they may begin promptly at the check-out time. Those times are posted in both your check-in instructions and also in the unit. It is my sincere hope that you will visit the area again, and if not our home, find one that will better suit the needs of you and your family. Warmest Regards, Elizabeth

Beautiful, peaceful place to enjoy a vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Ideal vacation spot for my teenage children, my dogs, and me. Peaceful and quiet but with people around... Lots of local beaches and pleasant drives to each one. We watched fireworks from St Joe Beach and got to see both the ones from Mexico Beach and the ones from Port St. Joe. We loved the beaches at Cape San Blas and at the Park at the end of Cape San Blas... But we spent most of our time at Salinas Park and even swam within feet of dolphins there. The only issue we had (which I rated them a five anyway because I am sure they would have rectified the issue if I had mentioned it) was the fold out bed was missing sheets... Can't wait to visit again soon!!!

Awesome Property and Even Better Management!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5 + 1 "Grammie" recently visited Unit B24 at Barefoot Cottages. Our impressions are that the location exceeds expectations, as you have the pool/hot tub right there at your front door. The beaches at St. Joe Bay are easily accessible, as are Cape San Blas, Mexico Beach and many more. We even took a quick day trip over to Apalachicola and St. George Island, including a GREAT lunch at the Owl Cafe in Apalachicola. The cottage itself is spacious, spotlessly clean, and decorated in a manner that is beachy/relaxed, without going to the usual tropes of too much color and so forth.

Exceeding all of this is the outstanding service you'll receive from Coastline Vacation Rentals and their agent, Elizabeth. During our stay, we had a small problem with a "sticky" dishwasher button, rendering the appliance temporarily unwilling to do its job. Though this is clearly a "first world" problem, Elizabeth and the team responded better, more personally, and more quickly than many MUCH more pricey properties we've stayed with, having the item immediately fixed, tested and back in commission.

Bottom-line, there's a WOW factor here. Wow, this is a great value. Wow, this is how I remember Florida being. Wow, this is a nice property. WOW, somebody working with me and my family REALLY cares. You should check it out. I guarantee you'll be back.
