Plenty of room for our extended family of 15.
Ernest T. | May 2022
We loved our stay at Mill Cove Cottage. The sunset views overlooking the water are stunning and the home has excellent proximity to downtown.

House is located conveniently. We rented the entire house but wasn't given the code to the basement area. The door from the kitchen to the basement unit was locked on both sides which makes it very inconvenient for a family staying together as you have to go outside to get to each section of the house. I called Vacasa as we needed a code for the basement unit and they had to contact the "local person" to call me back. Kevin called me within the hour and was very nice and helpful. He showed us how to get the units unlocked so we could connect inside the house by walking through the basement. The laundry is also downstairs so not sure how people who rent the upstairs would ever do their laundry without access? The password sent to us via the Vacasa app was wrong and we had to call Kevin again. He gave us the correct password. Lastly, we were told we could park on either side of the house(by the Vacasa person, not Kevin) but a neighbor came over to chastise us for parking in the wrong place. Too much confusion that can be addressed by more organization and planning on Vacasa's part. Not the smoothest rental. 4 stars are because Kevin was quite responsive and explained that they just took over this property by another management team so things are still being worked out. We left a couple of things behind in our rush to leave by 10a checkout, and they want $25 to ship a small portable battery for charging a phone. :-( Oh, the basement is a bit musty if you need to sleep in that bedroom so consider that if you need more than 4 bedrooms.
