Not a 3 Bedroom
We stayed at Whale's Tale Cottage in the beginning of June. We selected it because it was advertised as a 3 bedroom home. When we arrived we were disappointed to find that the 3rd "bedroom" was simply a twin bed crammed into a non air-conditioned laundry room. No one was able to sleep there. There was no breeze and the room was never cooler than 85 degrees.
Additionally, we came by boat and asked several times for directions to the dock. We were finally able to get GPS coordinates, but the approaching channel is not well marked and there was no fresh water at the dock.
We were excited to have a golf cart offered to us, but we were hesitant to go down many of the beach access roads because the brakes were nearly ineffective.
The home was in a good location near a beautiful beach that allowed our kiddos to collect a lot of sea glass. It was also nice to have a washer and dryer.
Whale's Tale Cottage was not as advertised.
