“This Place is Awesome! What a great location and View!"”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016
person found this review helpful

We stayed at Marilyn's Cottage with our friends and found it absolutely wonderful. The house is beautifully decorated with lots of new furniture, very clean and has the best location and view ever! It is close to great restaurants and bars and because the house is right on the beach we could walk for miles or just take our chairs and listen to the Gulf of Mexico. We are very picky when we go on vacation - that is why Marilyn's Cottage was such a wonderful surprise.

We will definitely be coming back next year. The house really feels like home. Thank you for the great memories.

“Plaster bucket/liquor bottles”
Reviewed 27 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Hello....we checked into Marilyn's cottage Saturday evening...and there are many issues.First only 2 of the 4 TV's work.There were open empty liquor bottles on the porches , there was an area on the wall touched up with plaster and the bucket of plaster was just left on the stairs , our master bathroom the sink would not drain water and the toilet would barely flush if at all....stains on carpets and furniture...I understand everything cannot be perfect....but this is unacceptable for a vacation house....and certainly for $500 a night.

Management Response

Thank you for your feedback. We think it is important for you to know that the “Spring Break” guests that stayed immediately prior to your arrival had vandalized the property, causing a significant amount of damage. We spent many hours with a large crew cleaning the property – but unfortunately, not all of the damage could be fixed that quickly. Hence, we immediately contacted you and offered compensation for the items that were not able to be addressed prior to your arrival.
Thankfully, the house has been completely restored and is once again back to its fully renovated beauty. We completely understand that it was an inconvenience and we would like to offer you a discount if you come back to stay with us again. We promise, Marilyn’s cottage looks amazing! We look forward to hearing from you.
