When we looked at the pictures and reviews we were really excited to be staying here. However, upon arrival we were unable to get into the clubhouse and there was no one about to greet us or ask how to get in. We did eventually get in so it wasn't a huge issue. The pool is said to be heated in the high season...why not in the off season when people likely want to use it most? The wifi is incredibly slow...again not a huge issue because we are not glued to our internet and we did find it elsewhere when we needed it. What was most apparent was the condition of the unit we were staying in. While clean for the most part, many things were not working. The remote for the TV, the fridge had a leak which left puddles of water on the kitchen floor, the unit was advertised as being capable of sleeping 4...2 is a push and the fold out in this unit was so old it was hard to even sit in it let alone1 person sleep in it. There were no extra blankets in the unit so we had to hunt around in the clubhouse for more. They advertise fishing pole rentals and bike rentals but there was no one around to do so. Couldn't figure out how to turn on the dock light, propane tanks on the BBQ's were either leaky or empty, no phones available...just so many little things that we got completely turned off. Don't get me wrong, we appreciate the older, rustic cottages rather than the condos that are mostly found around Florida. However, this particular cottage #1 is in need of some attention and TLC and the grounds are a little dumpy looking. Will not go back and will not recommend it to anyone.
