|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
This adorable updated country cottage is located just 1.5 blocks from the beautiful Gulf white beaches, 1 block from Treasure Bay Casino and walking distance from our favorite restaurants. Recently refurbished from top to bottom with all new amenities, (soory, no dishwasher). This quaint home features top of the line appliances and all the comforts of home. It comfortably sleeps up to 5 guests and has free internet and cable (minimal channels). The kids will love the lush yard and easy access to the beach! Pictures don't do this adorable cottage justice. You'll never want to leave!
PLEASE NOTE: This property is located near an operating train track and although all widows are double pane, you will hear the train go through and does blow the horn through intersections. Only 1 Guest has complained, but after a couple days use seem to get used to it.
We stayed there for cruising the coast. But on the night before we left the sink drain pipe exploded and I called the owner she proceeded to tell me she was going to give me a night back that was in October. And we left it cleaner than what it was when we got there. I don't like being told that you are going to do something and don't. And also some of the outlets didn't work either.
There was a train but did not bother me or my family. We had a great time. The house had everything we needed.
We do not feel this property was represented correctly and we found no mention in the description of an active train route. With this information, we could have made a decision as to whether we wanted to chance the noise level. This is a negative that must be disclosed since it affects the peace and quite of the vacation. After the third train in the middle of the night we found sleep was out of the question.
In addition to the trains, the clothes washer did not work; there is no dishwasher; no ice-maker and the cook-top has one setting...HIGH, so don't expect top-of-the-line appliances as listed in this attached description: (Recently refurbished from top to bottom with all new amenities, this quaint home features top of the line appliances and all the comforts of home.) The economy/ basic cable was such there was nothing but a few network stations and the oldest of the old (Daniel Boone) reruns. So no cable sports or children's programming and a bedroom television was not even connected to the cable. In addition, the grass was overgrown and the neighborhood is at best questionable..
The only refund we received was for the upcoming nights but not the actual nights we stayed. She attempted a breakdown which is irrelevant to us since we still had the same out-pocket of three nights.
Overall, it was a very disappointing experience and we felt it important to offer a review for others to have more disclosure to make an informed decision.
This property backs up to the train tracks and although the double pane windows do some filtering, you will hear the train go through at different hours of the day!
