The cottage is beautiful and kept very clean. Weather did not co-operate but, it still was lovely. Had to shorten stay. Was supposed to be there a week. Only stayed 2 days. Had to also cancel the following week. Unfortunately, I would never book through Flip key because, due to my husband being transferred and plenty of notice it still cost us a lot of money to stay. We had to cancel the final week. Flip Key is an agent and it is a business so no allowing for emergency cancellations. I would stay at this cottage again but, because it is through this agent, and our circumstances, we will not be going back. I would not recommend to friends for this reason only. Not due to anything at the cottage.
We liked the quaint cottage, privacy offered by the location and proximity to hiking and sight-seeing. The threat of poison ivy was concerning for is in relation to our dog. Close running trails were not available and running on the scenic road was not that enjoyable. While the water was beautiful, walking on the slippery rocks discouraged swimming.
“It is was okay.”
Overall we had a pretty good week. The privacy and seclusion of this location was great. It was just what we wanted. We got good use of the 2 person kayak as well. We were, however, a little disappointed with the poorly cared for grounds. The big windows at the front of the cottage would afford an excellent view of the water, if the shrubs etc were trimmed occasionally. We were here late June into early July so we had a few chilly nights still. It was nice to have the fireplace to warm the cottage a bit. We encountered cockroaches several times in the cottage as well, which of course wasn't a pleasant experience. The coffee maker was broken when we arrived so we purchased one in Owen Sound and left it there. We have had no offer to be reimbursed to this point yet. The adirondack chairs were in a precarious state of repair as well. For the price per week we would definitely not return here.
This quaint and inviting cottage had so much charm and comfort and was our home for a wonderful holiday week. We enjoyed our morning coffees and evening wine on the lovely stone patio and the rocky shoreline always begged for more exploring. We really enjoyed swimming - the water was so crystal clear! With so much privacy and quiet, we felt a million miles away from the city. Such beautiful scenery everywhere! We highly recommend this cottage and will return.
“Wonderful, relaxing experience in a paradise like environment!”
I would highly recommend this cottage and hope to return again next year. Perfect for an adult couple- or two. Stoney waterfront -so bring your water shoes. The cottage was so quaint and comfortable. Beautiful property- total privacy.
“Peace and Tranquillity”
This was exactly what we wanted, peace and relaxation. The cottage was nestled on the waters edge. It was extremely private. The inside of the cottage was very cozy. Everything was clean and we felt right at home. There was a lot of poison ivy around but never once was it a problem for us if you stayed away from unchartered territory. The shoreline was very rocky but there were spots of sand to sit and relax on. The water on Georgian Bay is so clear and beautiful. Just wear some water shoes because the rocky bottom can be slippery. All in all a great stay!! I highly recomend it.
We spent a week at this delightfully secluded cottage and enjoyed it very much. The location is fabulous, the area around well worth exploring and the sound of the water and the wildfowl greeted us day and night. We grew particularly fond of the resident seagull, Heathcliff we called him, who wouldn't allow any other gulls in his private bay. We brought a kayak and used the one provided - the water is so clear you'd think you were in the Caribbean. Loved it.
“Simple Life in the Sound”
Turquoise cottage was just what the doctor ordered. We arrived to a peaceful private setting, clean and well equipped cottage and views to die for. The beautiful stone fireplace and nautical inspired decor gave a real cosy feel to the cottage. The central location of Turquoise allowed us to cycle and or do half day trips to Wiarton, Southamton and Owen Sound and still have the afternoon to lounge on the beach or read under the trees. We enjoyed all those cottage experiences we remembered from our youth, beach fires under the stars, skipping stone competitions and going for an evening paddle.(Around 8:00 PM you might hear the bagpipes echoing across the water).
We were really satisfied with the on line service that we got when we were looking for a place to go. The personal, were really pleasant and helpful since this was our first time.I would and have recommended the site to my friends. As for the cottage We had a peaceful two weeks enjoying Turquoise cottage 577. The cottage was well kept and roomy and very private which we really liked,no really close neighbors. There was a lot to see in the surrounding areas, hiking, waterfalls, and nature in it self. Even thought the beach was rookie, we had a lot of fun with the canoe and kayak that was at the cottage. I think the one thing that I would change, would be the brush that is near the sitting area. It blocks the view when one is still at the top of the stairs. It needs to be opened up a little more. Other than that we would love to go back and spend more time there.
