        Reviews

        Good location - great pool - home in need of some attention

        We really enjoyed our stay at "The Nest" but the house is in need of some TLC.

        When we arrived, we quickly noticed that the house had not been adequately cleaned from the prior guests. We raised the issue with the property management company, and three (3!) cleaners were immediately sent out and they spent several hours giving the home the deep cleaning it needed.

        The house is showing its age, and there are several maintenance issues the owners really should address. It is not a luxury home, but it fit our needs.

        The highlight of the house is the huge pool. It is nicer than the pool at many hotels. And the location is good - not on the beach, but a pretty easy walk (5-7 minutes, maybe). The screened in porch was also a nice touch, once the rips in the screen were repaired. But even still, the bugs (mosquitos and "no-see-ums") were oppressive. This would be true of anywhere on the island, but please bring strong bug spray and use it!

        Also - its a small thing, but there is no indoor dining space. I don't know how we didn't notice that before we arrived...

        In sum - charming place with an amazing pool, and the management company could not have been more accommodating. They addressed all our needs quickly and professionally. - Anonymous, Falls Church, VA

        THE NEST 2020

        We love the location, the privacy and the pool. Those items are very important to us. The house continues to show its age, and so do I. With arthritic hands, that are getting worse each year, I am having difficulty with the 2 gates to the deck and the door handle to the pod. The gates have not lined up properly for the 3 years we have rented the house. You have to lift the gate up to unlatch them and they immediately drop down making it impossible to close without lifting them again. I am not sure I will be able to open them next year and with a dog and toddler grandchildren, this makes the situation not only painful but dangerous. For maybe $1,000 new gates could be properly installed. - Lorna G., Minneapolis, Minnesota

        The NEst

        We loved the home. It was quiet and works well for our family. the little children loved the walk around the houses.The swimming pool was a great asset!! It was well attended by San Cap Pool Service.The plantings were nice and we loved the osprey nest near the driveway.
        The cleaning staff needs to clean the window wells and wipe down the moldings in the rooms.Otherwise, we were happy. Wondering if TV could be connected in the extra little house. - Jim C., Menasha, WI

        March 2018 at the Nest

        We are renting again next March, so that tells you that we are very happy with our stay. There are many mechanical issues with the house, but when we balance that against the location, the wildlife all around us, the peace and privacy, who cares about the screens and windows not working! - Lorna G., Minneapolis, Minnesota
