Nice place - would stay again
- laundry detergent and dishwasher soap provided (very helpful)
- Very nice owners
- pool and pool area was clean and steps away
- good parking
- pool was cold
- no hair dryers provided in rental (I wasn't prepared for that :-))
- Very limited cable service - basic channels - not much for kids
- darker blinds for bedrooms so the l light doesn't wake up the kids
Cute, but needs updating
Location was great, owners were responsive, but it was too much money for what we got. The pictures are very outdated-property was very over grown, pool house is not available to use, hammocks are no longer allowed so they weren’t put up. The “bar” outside is a nice thought, but it was used as storage, and the grill is on the other side of the pool, so the bar becomes rather useless. Kitchen and bathrooms were updated, but the decorations were not-mismatched window coverings and chair/couch covers, and no room darkening window covers or even blinds-just sheer curtains. There is not enough sitting spaces for 12 people, so if you are stuck inside you are literally on top of each other. The owners seemed to show up every time we were there-once to weed, once to vacuum out his car, once to move furniture-which he asked our young children to help with, a few times to check on the pool. He was very nice, but we felt like we were being watched. Even though the condo was for 12 people, I mistakenly only put that 4 were coming. Ended up costing quite a bit more for 3 nights-not worth it
Poor management - stay here if you want to spend your time cleaning
** BOTTOM LINE - I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY TO ANYONE - read on if you want details***
I’ve stayed at this property twice now. I gave it a second chance because of the pool and the location. Those are the only two reasons to pick this property. Believe me ... completely NOT worth all the other headaches.
To begin with, the check out policy is unrealistic. They expect you to be out the door by 10am, with all the dishes, towels, and linen washed and put away, and have the floors swept and vacuumed. It says in the manual that they do not employ a professional cleaning service and expect the place to left exactly how it was upon arrival. Imagine how difficult that is when traveling with kids. I spent the entire last night of vacation doing laundry and cleaning the condo.
Having said that, I don’t think everyone does that. If you read other reviews most mention the linens not being washed, floors sandy or dusty, or the place just not very clean. In our condo, our dishwasher did not work. It must have been broken for awhile because the dishes in the cupboard had dried food on them, the mugs had coffee rings and there was lipstick on a couple of the glasses. Not only did we have to wash all the dishes before using them, we had to hand wash the dishes our entire stay.
Check out time is promptly at 10am. We had all our belongings out of the condo at 10:02 ... and had the car packed and were ready to go at 10:15. The cleaning staff was already in the condo. My 13 year old daughter ran back in to make sure she hadn’t left any electronics or chargers, etc and to do a final sweep. We drove out of the parking lot at 10:18.
The following day I received an email that only a portion of our deposit was being returned. Monies were held to pay for 6 missing white towels and a broken bathroom mirror. I assured them that the mirror was NOT broken when I left the condo at 10am, nor did I find any towels in my laundry when I got home. Their reply was that they spoke to the cleaning ladies who said we checked out late and the last person in the condo was my 13 year old daughter who was “running frantically around the place obviously looking for something .... most likely her PACIFIER ... “ and that I needed to check with her about the broken mirror. She has stopped responding to my emails.
Bottom line - the pool area is nice and relaxing ... the location is close to everything ... management is rude and not helpful. It just is NOT worth it.
if it is rude to expect people to watch their children and have them be respectful of other guests, and to check out on time for the next guests to come in, to not leave food stains all over the furniture, and to to pay for the broken bathroom mirror, the broken coffee pot, and the towels that they took home, I guess I'll just have to live with it. I know she thought threatening to leave bad feedback would mean she wouldn't have to answer for their behavior, she was wrong. we run a respectable business, in a neighborhood with both rentals and and full time homeowners. I expect everyone to behave like a adult, and monitor their kids. claiming that the "Mexican Maids" broke everything their kids had just spent the week abusing in the 6 minutes that they were there before we arrived was just racist bigotry and bad parenting.
This place says it sleeps 12 so 11 friends and I had a girls weekend there. It was tight, but it does indeed sleep 12. The location was great and we felt very welcomed and safe. Pool was clean and we had a great pool day. After reading other reviews we brought out own sheets and towels and good thing, bc there was no way we could've washed them all and checked out on time. We walked to Borrowed Time, Back Alley Pizza and Coastal Society. I would definitely go back!
Fun weekend getaway!
We came to Douglas for a bachelorette party and had the best time! Any issues that came up with the condo I addressed with Sarah and she responded quickly and offered any help that she could. We appreciate the quick response and the convenience of the house location!
Amazing place to stay. My family of 6 adults and 4 children spent four days here as a family vacation. The beach is close but we spent more time at the pool. The pool is a great size for the kids, not too deep but deep enough. We had a blast watching the kids have fun. Used the grill and just hung out for lunch and dinner. Very short drive into Saugatuck where we did a little shopping and had dinner one night. Fredrick and Sarah were very nice and very friendly. We enjoyed visiting with them. We brought our own sheets and towels so cleaning up after ourselves before checking out was pretty easy. This could be a yearly vacation for us.
