This home was to be rented for our June 2018 trip.
So we planned on renting this home for a couples getaway, vow renewal, anniversary retreat. We saw the home was big enough for then 10 people but since we were a couple of 5 we decided the location and the property was beautiful. In requesting the home 3 MONTHS in advance we had put in our deposit and excited for our trip. We were also going to rent the extra boat from the owners for 3 days. It is end of April and our trip in 1st week of June and the owners emailed us saying the property was over booked. How do you do that to people when emails were sent before booking and periodically over time? That question we may not know but we then had to scramble to find us a new home which we were 1 month in. Worst communications ever with this owner. Be prepared to be screwed over as they are not reliable and unorganized with their home. There was no other deals or offers they gave us besides a house too small for our party. What a disappointment these property owners are. I know this may not happen to allot of people but the way we were treated was pretty unfair. Just wanted to make sure everyone knows so they don't fall in the same boat as us.
Great fit for our family of 10, 2 adults in master suite cottage, 2 adults & 2 kids in main cottage & 2 adults & 2 kids in family cottage. A 3 minute walk to private dock & beach. Boat came with rental & we rented another boat from owners so all 10 could enjoy beautiful water & scenery. Also rented 2 cars, suggest arranging in advance for better selection & prices. Kayaks, paddle boards & snorkel kits were great extras. Everything we needed was at house. Caretaker Monica very nice & quick to respond to any issues or questions, Good time of year to go, weather good & no crowds. Suggestions-take cash as a lot of restaurants, etc take cash only, take water shoes to walk from house to beach, be familiar with operating boats & with tide tables as water levels can vary, also note current of water for safety, groceries & eating out can be expensive so plan accordingly. Had a local take us to swim with pigs, feed iguanas, see turtles, etc, Ate at Chat & Chill, Santanas, Splash, Peace & Plenty, Shirleys & Catch a Fire. Trip & location met all expectations
