Positives: Fantastic location, beautiful sunsets, clean, friendly staff.
Comments: My family and I stayed at west willows in cottage #1. I have a 6 month old and an almost 3 year old. When we arrived we were very happy with how clean the cottage was. We did have problems with our satellite which was not working for 4/7 days. We let Scott know and he did everything in his power to fix it and ended up refunding us some money as well as he gave us a free boat rental . By reading other reviews I must say you don't rent a cottage somewhere as beautiful as the Sandbanks to sit inside and watch tv. The people that own trailers in the park were very friendly. We really got to know some of them during our stay. We would chat or wave to them daily. There was always someone at the front office to help us. They are walking distance to the dunes which is $16.50 parking for the day. We walked, saved the money. If people are not happy with their stay I strongly recommend that you email or speak with Scott to let him know what changes he can make to improve otherwise he will never know. You have to remember your renting a cottage that many other families use so things are bound to not work

Positives: Location, Clean, close to the Water
Negatives: Close to the water Jet ski need to have silencer
Comments: Had a great stay at West Lake Willows. The staff are always available if needed yet never around when not needed (great skill to have). The site was very clean, the permanent campers made you feel welcome. This was our 4 time at this location, will defiantly be a 5th. The only negative was needed a handrail on the steps up the deck. Work on that for next year Scott

Comments: We arrived late but Scott was there to greet us the instant we pulled in. Cottage was beautiful...luxurious actually. It was dark at night but the morning view was amazing. Cottage right in-front of the water, all amenities we could think of ALL PRIVATE too, met amazing people, who might we add have gone up there for 18 years and going strong, and service like VIPs!!! Scott, we'll definitely be back!! We loved it! Andrew & Catherine

Please ignore my Ratings.
I am the proprietor of West Lake Willows Resort. Although I recognize I can't please everyone and everyone is entitled to their option. The above customers are one and the same and after several stays at our property were denied a reservation in April of 2010 due to our past experiences with them. After denying their booking I was given a profanity laced tongue lashing ending in a vow to defame our name online.
I could share my experiences with this customer but will chose not to.
When reading the above reviews please consider the history with this customer.

Positives: Beautiful location.
Negatives: Very poor customer service, lousy accomodations and expensive $$$$$ for what they charge & what you have to put up with.
Comments: Beautiful location; however, poor customer services & poor accomodations (a lot of problems with trailers). Staff is very unavailable to respond to concerns/complaints & even when you contact them -- they don't follow through. Also, staff proceeded to do renovations in front of my rental trailer in summer: very incosiderate & noisy. What kind of vacation is that? Have some "backup staff" available when owner is not there to address your concerns - but the "backup staff person" is elderly & somewhat incompetent. He doesn't relay your complaints/issues to owner, as he often "forgets" and he often says that he can't help you & that you must contact the "Big Honcho" (owner of the park) instead. How frustrating is this?! If you don't mind paying this place's inflated prices $$$ to rent a trailer/week ($800-1500) & you can put up with lousy accomodations & poor customer service -- this is the place for you!!! Good luck to you!

Comments: Gee, I wonder who posted the last posting giving West Lake Willows 10/10 on everything!......sounds a little overinflated. I think I have a good idea who wrote this posting...Anyways, I have stayed there renting one of their trailers & I definitely wouldn't recommend it. The only thing going for them is that there location is great -- everything else just didn't measure up.
