I would have written this review in August 2013, but the property mysteriously disappeared from the website shortly after our stay. The property shows beautifully on the website, but it’s what you don’t see that’s the problem. The house was infested with spiders and cobwebs were everywhere! So much that it felt like bugs were crawling on us while we slept at night. The basement was extremely muggy with ceiling panels covered with mold as well as molded pillows on the basement bedding. One of the pillar posts on the first floor balcony had a bird nest on top between the two balconies with black drainage from the nest running down the pillar post onto the picnic table beneath so, we weren't able to enjoy breakfast on the balcony. The first floor bathroom had rotted water in the washing machine drip pan which caused a foul odor. The master bedroom bathtub stopper was broken and would not allow water to fill the tub so, we weren't able to enjoy the jet tub. Most of the window knobs in the dining area were broken with "do not open" signs so, we couldn’t open the windows. The private pier was hidden in a jungle of bushes and surrounded by rotted water filled with debris so, my husband was unable to fish. Although, I paid a cleaning fee, the checkout list posted in the kitchen had a long list of cleaning tasks for guest to complete prior to departure. Two of which were to clean and put away all of the dishes and ALL linen used during your stay. I finally contacted the '"on-island hostess" who had no cellphone reception while on the island. She promised to send someone out to the property but, never did.On the day of departure, I requested to stay an hour after checkout to complete the list. After an exhausting hour, I did not finish laundering the linen used by my family of six in the compact washer and dryer so, I gathered the unfinished linen and put in a pile in front of the washing machine. Once returned, I had to track down the owner for my security deposit which was returned within 23 days as oppose to 14 days per the contract and low and behold, it was minus an additional cleaning fee charge! The owner is out of touch with his property and relies on a dishonest hostess/housekeeper who poorly maintains his property and is in the business of swindling his guest out of additional cleaning fees.

Owner's Response: We deeply care about our property and have had hundreds of people stay with us with glowing reviews. These can be found in our in-house guest book...

As you can see from this review, this client had issues well beyond what is written about our home. The complaints noted are contrived and completely overstated. They were never even brought to our attention until we had to charge them extra for cleaning. Then suddenly, all the complaints came in. These people left the house a complete mess. Our cleaning crew spent many extra hours cleaning up after them....

This house is beautiful.

Feel free to call us directly to discuss any of these issues....

UNSANITARY AND UNSATISFACTORY

  • 1 of 5
We arrived to find a home that was as beautiful as the pictures showed, however, the pictures would never let on how many rats were running above our heads in the attic. I opened up the attic door to go up to the widows walk and was showered with rat feces. We reported this to the owner and he did come to look into the problem and clean it up. In addition to the unsanitary conditions we faced, we were also blamed for a window crank that was inoperable from the time of our arrival. However we were very busy with a family wedding and didn't have time to address every hassle we experienced here. As a result the owner took advantage and charged against our full security deposit. Despite many requests for an explanation and invoice for the repair, weeks later we did receive an invoice which was outrageously high for replacement of a window crank which I've done at my own home for a tenth of the cost. This owner is not operating under ethical standards and all I would say to anyone considering renting his house, buyer beware - have a lawyer on retainer to look at any agreement he presents, and make sure to thoroughly inspect the home upon arrival, report any defects you find, or ultimately you will pay through the nose. Better yet, find another property where the host is dealing with a fair deck from the beginning.

Owner's Response: We have had hundreds of guests who have simply loved this house and have submitted wonderful comments. The wedding party noted in this review was loud, obnoxious and inconsiderate with our property. They caused more damage in two days than what we have had in 5 years.

This house is beautiful from top to bottom... and we have always answered any requests for repair or concern the day received. We take great pride in our property and service. Let us show you...
