We had a vacation package through Expedia. Flight, rental car and cottage on 9/2021. The efficiency not cottage was really clean and properly stocked for what we needed. No oven, but a tiny 2 burner stove top and small microwave were provided. We were expecting a cottage with a separate was dining room and a shower/tub combo. What we got was an efficiency at best. One room with the bed, kitchen, tv area and dining room table. All in one tiny room. The shower and toilet in a small area right at the front door/kitchen. The owner just said I got the room I booked and that I should rented the right room. My paperwork, like there brochure and photos never said I wouldn't be in a single cottage. In fact, on numerous occasions it was referenced as a cottage with a shower/bath combo. Did we let it ruin our trip? Nope Would we stay here again? Nope Just be careful and read every thing before using this property for your next family trip. Had they been upfront about it all things could have been different.

Properly was clean with all the utilities needed. Outside and surrounding area to get to the beach was heavily flooded and unsafe. TV was down for almost an entire day and this was unsatisfactory since we couldn’t go outside due to the flooding.
