Just got back from renting this property. We stayed for four nights, and we did not have to worry about packing all the "travel extras", having traveled from New England. The pictures and descriptions are accurate, except there is no motorboat included. The picture shows one as well as in the included list. No big deal for us. I guess if it was there we would have used it, but was not our reason for renting. The cottage is clean and well equipped. Although we only ate breakfast at the cottage, it appeared that there was PLENTY of kitchen items for all meals. The time we were at the cottage we spent on the deck. It is a real bonus. However, again, the pictures do show all the "clutter". Lots of chairs, tables, "bric-brac" that gives you a cluttered feeling. For me, less would have been more, however, my husband and our local guests thought it was "funky". Different strokes....
Any questions I had right before we arrived and while we were there were quickly answered. This cottage is located in an older neighborhood along the canals. Many homes in better shape, and some not so good. Safe neighborhood, all ages. Our friends lived approx. 2 miles away, and we did not rent a car so some days/nights we walked to and fro, and never worried. Close to some great places to eat (breakfast,lunch, dinner, and ice cream), small local beach, and the wonderful gulf. Come on down, you will love it! I am the first Trip Advisor review, however, there are many more on VRBO. Check them out.
