“Sandy Gloomy was not comfortable.”

The former reviews led me to think we would be getting our moneys worth, even though the rate suddenly changed from $150 to $180 per night. Also a $100 cleaning fee would imply a very clean house. The house was clean, but the beds had a very used smell. I suspect the comforters had not been washed in a long while. The couch was small and heavily stained. No need to sit on it though as there were no movies, no DVDs, no usable stereo and very few readable books. We brought food to cook, but the kitchen was without upper cupboards. This made finding things very had unless you enjoying crawling around on your hands and knees. Down below, we found pots and pans, plates etc. Do bring your own knives though. There were no spices, cooking oil, except some long gone rancid. A garage sale selection of flatware and miscellaneous odd things could be fond in the drawers. To this day I am haunted by the extreme tackiness of the decor, a combo of weak motel Pueblo prints with a nod towards nautical/seashore, with unattractive shells, and a couple of little lighthouses. These all dwarfed by huge hideous fake flower arrangements. There is not a water view, unless you climb the sand dune behind the place and walk for a while. This is the one plus. You can walk all the way to the beach through the dunes We were so depressed by the place we left one night early.

I regret your experience at the cottage. Your opinion is yours and I will attempt to address your comments. I know we exchanged emails before your stay regarding the daily fees. Possibly this set the tone for your experience and comments regarding the cottage. The amenities for your stay were the same for all the previous guests.

“A haven in a perfect location, fabulous outdoor fun.”
Reviewed 4 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Sandy Glove was fantastic, the pictures don't show how great it really was . The backyard was a sheltered stretch of grassy space with room to engage with outdoor activitys . Well resourced kitchen, perfect for cooking on holiday. Great proximity to the forest and the beach. Had a great family holiday for a week there in July . I have no hesitation recommending this rental . Thanks Bob.

“Lovely, comfortable, & affordable!”

We loved staying at this lovely house while visiting Fort Bragg. A short walk and we were on the beach at McKerricher State Park and only minutes from the quaint downtown area! The beds are comfortable and the owners have all the amenities we needed including linens, dishes, towels and even beach toys and chairs! Really a great find at a great price! Only a few changes would make this place perfect - the bedroom with the king bed is too cramped with the headboard leaving about a foot to walk to the further side of the room with the closet and slider. Handicapped or people who have a hard time moving about won't be able to use. I just missed hitting my head against the flat screen on the wall at night. The kitchen cabinets need some pull handles, we struggled at times to open them. The griddle part of the stove didn't heat up. But that's it! Otherwise super nice and we will return!! Oh, and Blackberries to pick and eat!

Everything was wonderful. My dad is 82 so I loved the ramps that made it so easy for him. I say outside every morning and watched the deer and the hummingbirds. We hope to go back next year.

“Very nice place tovacation”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Samdy Glove. The cottage was perfect. We barbecued at night and walked to the beach to watch the sunset. My granddaughter played on the sand dunes. We had camp fires also in the evening. I will definitely stay there again. It was so much better than a motel. It was perfect for my family.

“Great Fined...”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This house came with everything you would like to see in a vacation rental. Not just inside but outside also, chairs and lots of fire wood. The location was good, just a little out of town but not to far. A little walk to the ocean and to watch the sunset. It was a great get-a-way. Looking forward to doing it again.
