The property overall was nice, however the listing didnt say if it was handicap acsessible or not and being a rental close to the sand dunes does not mean the o ly reason someone may stay there is to the activities around there. Because the property was not accessible we only were able to stay one night, we were not there even 10 hours total and 1 hour of that was spent cleaning up. When i asked the property manager for a refund of only 1 day and nit 2 because it was after 11 am when i got back out there to clean up and i told him we understood he could not refund us 2 of the paid for nights we did not stay because it was already to late in the day probably for him to relist so he could rent it out. It took him over 1 week to get back to me about and we he did he told us we left the cabin unclean and used areas of the cabin that was impossible for my employer a 66 yr old disabled women ( im a caregiver) who had a stroke leaving her unable to use her ledt side, making it impossible for her to go up the very wide ladder used to go to the second floor, were the owner accused us of leaving lufhts on doirs open and stsined sheets in order for him to not refund us for 1 out of the 3 nights we paid for
OK this is a weird one. First off I don't advertise as handicap accessible. Kae and Judy and her 3 kids rented my A-frame for 3 nights in August. They notified me by email that they were leaving early. They asked if I would consider refunding them 1 night but would understand if I couldn't. I responded that I would consider it and asked them to give me a mailing address or credit card number. I went to check the place out on what would have been their 3rd day. I think they left late on the 2nd day but I never checked my email until the morning of the 3rd day. When I get there I find the door unlocked, the upstairs balcony door wide open, a bird in the house, a bunch of lights on the ceiling fan going. The place had not been cleaned at all. There was an un removable large black/purple stain on the upstairs bed linens, the vacuum cleaner was damaged trying to access the bag, a large black melted something on top of the dryer and a missing face cloth. I decided to not offer the refund and I did not make any charges against their security deposit for excess cleaning and damages.
To this day I have never received a mailing address or credit card number to issue a credit. I got an email from them about a week later asking for a refund for 2 of their 3 night reservation. I explained to them what I found and they said that was impossible and that they never even went up stairs to those 2 bedrooms and that they slept downstairs in 1 bedroom and the couch. They said they never used the vacuum because they used their own shop vac that they had with them, when they cleaned up on the way out.
Now I suppose it is possible that some one else came in after they left and messed things up, but highly unlikely. I live next door and have been renting this place for 21 years and have never had any thing even close to that happen. They are required upon leaving to turn every thing off and lock the doors. They would have been smart to give me a call when they decided to leave and not to send an email which might not be checked until the next day. Any way it's weird and unfortunate. I probably would have issued a one day refund if the place wasn't so disrespected even though refunds do not have to be issued unless I can re rent the time. That is by far the most damage I have had to any of my places in quite a while and they were only there 1 day.
This was the first time we rented a house. The house is on a beautiful little lake that reminded me of my parents summer house in Massachusetts. I caught a few trout and a couple of small yellow perch. If you have your own ATVs,Mike has a garage to store them on the property. We rented ATVs just down the road at Dune Bugs ATV rentals and had a great time.
Rented the house for a job crew, more like vacation thN work
Awesome house! Dune access! We started our week out camping and then came to the house. We were able to hang out and play games with family. Fish off the boats provide and even caught some trout! Brother in law rented the other rental above us so we could all be together and just enjoy good family time and eat too much. Hope to come back and recommended to others! Thank you!
Excellent place to relax and get away
We have stayed here many times and enjoy everything about this place. Dune Haven really lives up to it's name :-)
Rustic, wonderful peaceful spot. Off road heaven but we enjoyed it too. Beautiful view.
We loved staying here. It was just like my family cabin back east. Mike was a great host. We enjoyed the lake and the boats. The stairs are a bit steep so beware of that for anyone older, just make sure they use the room downstairs. We could hear the off road vehicles but it didn't keep us up or bother us. They are allowed to ride until 11:00 PM and often do. Wished I had one! The dunes are right off the driveway.
