Good location BUT ....
When I booked this cottage well in advance, the reviews had been OK, when I checked VRBO, a few days before my arrival, I saw Maria G.'s 1 star review. I called the property manager Gregory and asked if the review description was correct. He didn't seem to think it was. I mentally prepared myself for condition of cottage. Maria G.'s 1 star review was very accurate, right down to the "still cleaning" even though I left & came back 3 hours later. This property has so much potential. I gave 2 stars instead of 1, because Gregory is a very kind human being. He was nice enough to offer ride to get groceries & showed me how to work TV/cable. and because the safety/location of the neighborhood is great.
