  • Smaller than expected


    1. The check-in process was smooth and the house was, for the most part, as good as described.2. However, it was so much smaller in real life than it seemed on the photos. A pretty small cabin indeed.3. The beach was so tiny and we are not allowed to get on the bridge. The two kayaks were not there, either. Not much to do at the house besides watching TV.4. The towels are really old and well used. The mattresses in the small bedroom were super uncomfortable I had a very bad sleep during the two nights there, and it pretty much ruined my experience at this house. The kitchen equipment (pots and pans) were old and scratched. There was no dishwasher nor dish rack and tray.5. The kid loved the bear themed interior, though.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Pachara, thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay. After reading your comments, the homeowner wanted to share the following:
    -"The pictures taken by Evolve accurately represent both the size and décor of the home as well as the beach area.
    -Regarding the dock area, it is important to mention that it can become a safety liability when children do not follow safety guidelines, especially given the presence of boats stored there. Access to the dock is primarily intended for boat owners.
    -For your convenience, the three kayaks and yard games are stored in the garage, which some other guests have found without any trouble.
    -The bedroom features a twin over a full bunk bed, which we hope would cater to different tastes.
    -The pots and pans in the kitchen were replaced with new ones less than four months ago, ensuring a well-equipped cooking space.
    -As for the towels, we replace them as they become worn, maintaining a high standard of cleanliness and comfort.
    Our commitment to all our guests is to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests as evidenced in all other reviews."

    Lovely little home! Very clean, well maintained, and furnished beautifully. The house itself was family friendly and there was plenty of space for our family (2 adults, 3 kids, and a baby). The deck was huge, great for outdoor relaxing. The shared private beach was very close and the shallow water was perfect for small children. Highly recommend staying here!
