“Average I guess”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2017

The whole situation was a mess and couldn't be avoided. Mrs. Jills daughter had a baby so she was unable to clean the cottage. I was under the impression after speaking with her that the sheets just needed to be dried and we were so excited to get there it really wasn't a big deal. She even offered to let us check out late. Once we arrived I realized bathroom was dirty and everything was dusty etc. So I went ahead and vacuumed and tried to help out do To the circumstances. Mrs. Jill is a very sweet lady and quickly responds to any concerns while there. She offered for us to come back for another weekend get away for a great deal. So again we brushed it off and were thrilled to go back. We even washed all linens and vacuumed again before we left just To help. As we were heading home we text Mrs. Jill we were gone and about her offer for us to go back. No response. So I waited a few days and tried again and no response. It was pretty disappointing to be so understanding I cleaned up twice and didn't ask for anything in return but she offered and got our hopes up just to ignore us when we were gone. P.s even the shower wall was falling on us the whole time. All in all mixed feeling about the whole trip. Location was cool though.

“Amazing Getaway”

Reviewed 30 May 2017

Mrs. Jill goes above and beyond to make her guest feel right at home. I have never been so pleased with a vacation getaway. I will rent her place again and have already recommended her place to others.

“Owner Jill Goes the Extra Mile”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2014

I think this will go down as one of the best experiences we have had with meeting the owner, feeling welcome, enjoying this comfy, lovely condo that has great amenities - and way better than a hotel room. We loved every minute and then went to the National seashore (fantastic), the nearby fabulous restaurants and enjoyed the ambiance of the island. Thank you Jill! Robin and Mike

“Beautiful Cottage + Amazing Hospitality + Perfection”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2014

This cottage is everything you want in a beach vacation. Décor is beautiful, comfy furniture. Lots and lots of extras you don't normally find in a rental. I've rented $2m beachfront homes that don't provide a fraction of what Jill gives you in this sweet little slice of heaven. From paper products to kitchen staples to dish and laundry soap to toiletries, plus a fully stocked kitchen, linens, books, movies, snacks... you really need only bring some groceries and swimsuit and you are all set for a great vacation. Nearby beaches are beautiful. Pool at the Purple Parrot was relaxing and un-crowded. Can't say enough, don't hesitate, book this one!

Response from the owner Thank you so much! Your review made me really smile because I have worked hard to think of everything to make my guests feel at home and comfortable. I love my cottage, the Purple Parrot Resort and especially the absolutely gorgeous beaches of Perdido Key. I hope that you'll consider a return visit one day - I would love to have you as my guests again!

“Exceptional home and experience”

Reviewed 9 May 2014

Jill, the owner, made our stay absolutely wonderful! The home itself was just that, a cozy and comfortable "home" with every possible amenity one could think of. She thought of everything from chocolate covered strawberries and champagne upon arrival to beach chairs, a cooler, natural soaps and laundry detergent. There were recommendations for where to eat, what to do and special souvenirs to take home with us. Jill was very helpful and met us at the home to show us around when we arrived. The location is ideal as it is walking distance from the beach, great restaurants and the amenities including pool, hot tub and tiki bar are luxurious and fun. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone who wants a touch of home away from home.

Response from the owner Thank you for your kind words and especially for sharing how much you enjoyed your stay at my cottage. I'm glad you appreciated all the special touches I've included, which are all things that I want and need when I am on vacation at the beach! Please come back again soon and enjoy our beautiful beaches and staying at "The Sand Dollar."

“Perfect honeymoon getaway”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2014

We enjoyed every minute at our stay here! The sweet owner made our honeymoon so comfortable right from the get-go by driving us late at night to go pick up groceries for the week. The condo was cute, clean, and well-equipped with just about everything we needed. Very close to beautiful beaches and a lot of fun places to eat like Fisherman's Corner and The Jellyfish. We highly recommend.

Response from the owner Thank you for your comments and I am so glad that you spent your honeymoon at my cottage. When it is time to celebrate your anniversary, come back and celebrate at "The Sand Dollar!"

“Labor Day Reprieve”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2013

The Purple Parrot condo was exactly what we needed to start our Labor Day weekend. Wish we could have spent more than just one evening, but we will be back. Jill was an absolute pleasure to work with. The condo has been very well decorated with all the comforts of home, and Jill has taken special pains to welcome her guests with a gourmet basket of snacks, tourist pamphlets, and a wonderful array of area information on restaurants, tourist attractions, etc. The cozy, calming cottage is great for a couple or small family. And the gated beach access was annual owner's pass was so convenient and not overcrowded...only a 2-minute drive with clean restrooms, pavilion, etc. Thanks again!

Response from the owner So glad you enjoyed your overnight stay at my cottage and I do hope you will come back again. I'm also pleased you enjoyed all the special touches that await my guests - everything from goodies in the kitchen, a bottle of wine, starter toiletries, beach chairs, towels and toys and all the basic necessities such as laundry detergent, paper towels, dishwasher detergent, etc. My goal is to have everything you would want or need to enjoy a relaxing and enjoyable stay. I hope you'll plan another visit in the future. Thank you for sharing your positive experience and feedback.

“Comfy, clean, cute cottage just minutes from white sugar beach”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2013

What an awesome find this cottage was and although we didn't meet the owner, Jill was extremely helpful and ensured we had a wonderful stay. The condo is beautifully decorated with a beach theme. It is very clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. There are laundry facilities in the condo. There is an indoor and outdoor pool just a minute's walk. The pool area is very nice with many sun loungers, and a tiki bar and grill. There's also a small waterfall over the pool which is a nice feature. It's just a few minutes drive down to the closest beach and about five minutes to the awesome Gulf Shores National Park. We visited three times during our weekend as Jill provided use of her annual pass. We enjoyed dinner and and lunch at Fisherman's Corner just across the bridge - the food was great and the fried shrimp about the best we've had. It was wonderful to relax at the Sand Dollar and we will be back as soon as we can.

Response from the owner I am so glad that you had a wonderful time and enjoyed everything! I absolutely love, love, love my little slice of paradise and also really enjoy staying there myself. I've worked hard to have everything available that I would need, want or enjoy using on a beach retreat. I just purchased beach chairs, an umbrella and a small ice chest to use for a day enjoying the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Coast. And I tried Fisherman's Corner, based on your suggestion - and you are right! Great food! Thank you for sharing your experience and again, I am pleased that you had a great time. That's my goal! Please do plan another visit to my cottage soon - I'll have everything ready for you!

“Tea for Two”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2013

The Sand Dollar was just perfect. It had everything that you could possibly need, we barely ate out as it was so easy to cook at "home" and it really did feel like home! Jill even ensured that there was kettle to boil my water for my tea :) The weather was fabulous and the beaches which were about a two minute drive away weren't crowded at all. We will definitely be back again, put the kettle on !

Response from the owner So glad that you enjoyed your visit to Perdido Key and your stay at "The Sand Dollar" cottage! It's nice to make great memories with family and I'm delighted that you were pleased with the special touches in the cottage. Nothing makes me happier than having guests who enjoy their stay and leave happy, already planning their next trip to our beautiful Gulf Coast beaches! Thank you for visiting our area and hope to have you as our guests again soon. The tea kettle will be waiting just for you! :) Jill

“Great Fun, Great Cottage, Great Memories!”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2013

Really enjoyed staying at the "Sand Dollar!" Everything was nice and cozy. Loved swimming in the pool and listening to live music at The Tiki Bar. Liked the village of cottages at Purple Parrot - really a unique atmosphere. The Sand Dollar cottage has many extra special touches and the owner is a local person who was easy to work with and made sure we were comfortable. And the beach was amazing!!! Hated to leave and I'm sure we will be back!

Response from the owner So glad you had a wonderful time!! The beach is calling you to come visit again soon and the Sand Dollar cottage will be waiting to welcome you back!
