Great get away! A place you can truly feel like a local.

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families staying- everyone had plenty of room. The golf cart was a huge bonus! The deck provided a great place to hang out and the outdoor shower was perfect after a day at the beach. The owner was wonderful to work with- answering all questions and checking on us during our stay. I would highly recommend staying here!

Family R&R=Summer Fun in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay!! A week was not long enough. The house was great, close enough for a nice walk to the Beach (which was wonderfully not over crowded) but the Golf cart made hauling the kids and supplies a breeze and they loved driving us around. The shower outside was used frequently and was a nice way to remove the sand and help keep it out of the house!!! I would love a return stay here someday. Rhonda is a wonderful person, helpful, knowledgeable of the area and quick to respond to any concerns or questions. I would highly recommend this place to anyone I know going. It was far enough to be out of the "party scene" (as we had small kids and teens; that was important to me) but close enough to hear the waves every night as I relaxed under the stars on the large deck!!! We all 12 hated to leave.

When I booked the beach house I didn't realize it was on Fort Morgan rd, about 20 mins from the main hang out which was a misunderstanding on my part. Nevertheless we had a wonderful time in a beautiful, private beach house.

We had a great time! Enjoyed the laid back atmosphere at the beach! No crowds!

  • 3 of 5

The house was just as described except it did not have Direct TV as it was stated on VRBO. While we came for the beach- with 6 kids under the age of 5 and 4 teenagers who are all used to watching more than just local channels- this was not ideal. The remote for the main TV was also missing. The back door had been broken into the night before we arrived and the repairman had to fix it with us there. This was not a comfortable feeling knowing someone had broken into the house. Golf cart was wonderful and the non-crowded beach was awesome.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your response, the door was broken by prior guest and maintenance had to repair it. Remote was missing and had to be replaced. Creole Cottage offers internet TV, we no longer provide cable TV. Thanks for your feedback.
