LEAVING NON-FOOD ITEMS BEHIND? - Posted By: ninaco on 11/22/2017
I used to bring lots more stuff from home than I do now. (Softsoap, dishwasher detergent, aluminum foil, dish liquid, etc.). But, although they’re not provided, most rental homes have these items left over from past renters. In recent years I haven’t brought any item of that sort & just buy what’s not in the home. While I use what’s there, I always leave anything I do purchase behind. In... [Read Full Post]

RENTAL HOUSE DOESN'T HAVE A GARBAGE CAN? - Posted By: 2boysmom on 11/22/2017
Title pretty much explains it, but the house we are renting this week doesn't seem to have garbage can for trash pick up. My son took the trash out and can't find one to put it in. Do I call the PM tomorrow? After we look again, in the daylight. I haven't noticed cans but I wasn't looking for them either.

OCEANA'S BISTRO - Good Food, Reasonable Prices
Just went in the off season, and had their Friday night special (fried oysters) and they were delicious! Prices are reasonable and a good selection of beers on draft.

KETCH 55 SEAFOOD GRILL - It was okay
Was disappointed that the shrimp in the shrimp and grits were on the small size and shells were still on. Service was good, and appetizers were okay. We went in the off-season which may have affected menu choices.

TORTUGAS' LIE - Great Meal After 12 Hr Drive
We needed a quick and easy meal after our long drive from Cleveland. Tortugas' was just down the street from our cottage. We opted for burgers and fries. My mom has the Swiss Jerk Burger and I had a basic cheeseburger. The patty was large and cooked to perfection (medium). The fries were amazing. The salt and pepper they put on the fries is awesome. The tomato and lettuce on the burger was... [Read Full Review]
