Everything was smooth from beginning to end. Couldn’t be any happier with our whole experience. Thanks again
I’m so glad you guys have a good thanksgiving at the coast. Come back again!
Lovely home on a quiet street, equipped with all we needed, close to the beach!!
We had a lovely trip, home was cozy and quiet with comfortable beds. Shops, beach, restaurants close by!! Owner was very pleasant!
Not for me
Filthy & uncared for home. Stairs to second floor a hazard. Upstairs unusable, so hot you can't breathe. Used air mattress and slept on floor. Yard unkept with dead plants displayed in flower box. Washer fills with inches if h20 so can only wash 3-4 items at a time. 6 ft. shrub in front makes it impossible to see when exiting drive without getting in wreck. Use a lookout! People drive crazy down street. Doors so old/wrecked had to put towel down for weather and bugs. ETC. ETC. ETC.
I just received a copy of your review and I’m puzzled that if you were so unhappy why you didn’t reach out to me directly?
I have reached out to my yard maintenance people and jumped their case.
As you had only listed 2 guests I’m surprised you felt the need to sleep upstairs. The upstairs windows are new casement windows and fully operational. Unfortunately, weather is one thing I don’t control.
Also the washer is set on auto sensor and fills in stages. It’s one of the new ones and in re-reading the manual that is how they describe it.
I am very sorry you were disappointed with my little house. Again I wish you had reached out to me directly. Many times it is through my guests that I find out about deficiencies.
Great location. Great price. Marginal Execution
The owner is pleasant. That is always a bonus. The process to rent was quick and easy, too. After we booked, however, we never received any information regarding our stay. I had to contact the owner on the day of our stay to even get into the home. Also, there is no instruction or guide book at the house; this leaves guests to ponder how everything works, where everything is in the house and neighborhood, what restaurants are good, etc...
Our Stay: When we first opened the door we were met by no less than 40 massive flies buzzing throughout the house. There are two fly swatters which have had considerable use, leading us to believe this may be a known issue. We spent the first hour in the home literally chasing and killing flies. On our getaway vacation.
Although certainly not a deciding point for us, the DVD player was a centerpiece of the original description we read when we chose this location. As such we brought some old movies to enjoy when the little one was asleep. However, there was neither a DVD player or a VCR, which was doubly odd as there were about 30 VHS tapes under the TV.
When contacted, the owner apologized for both issues and we settled them somewhat amicably (*there is a teeeeeny tiny DVD/TV in a kids room upstairs). Overall, however, we were disappointed in the execution of the home. There is a sense that the house is not well stocked or maintained by the cleaning and/or mgt company they may be using. There were odd little things overlooked we felt were sort of bottom-rung. Like, there are no cookie sheets or good selection of bowls/dishes to use for cooking. The love-seat in the living room is a herniated disc waiting to happen. And the upstairs is cold during cold weather. While we were burning up on the main floor our son was piled into blankets upstairs to keep warm.
Now, all of this said, we appreciated the location and price-point. These are the drivers we imagine most people will likewise appreciate. Regarding the location: guests should know that a walk on the beach will be met with a LOT of concrete foundations settled into the shoreline - it's a very "industrial" walk along the beach here. We saw no natural setting in our walks along the beach - just foundation after foundation after foundation.
So it was a good stay, but not a great stay. Great price for the location.
Jay.....I appreciate your honesty and I am very sorry about the issues you found on your arrival. (BTW, those fly swatters have been there since I purchased the home in 2006!) Subsequent to our phone conversation I refunded your cleaning deposit ASAP.......
Most often I find out about issues when my guests let me know. I have addressed the cleanliness issues with the manager of the firm I use for cleaning.
I had been notified of the "disappearance" of the DVD player two weeks prior to your arrival and I had made plans on replacing it during my monthly visit, which was the week after you were there. I certainly should have notified any interim guests and that is my fault.
The fly situation was a new one and completely puzzling to me. I have contacted an extermination company who I will be meeting with when I get to the house. I've ordered several fly trap gizmos from Amazon, which are being delivered to the house as well BUT....I need to figure out what the root cause is as well.
Thank you again for your honest review.
