My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
Unable to use solarium first 3 days, due to flooding. Dinning room chandelier didn't work and half the kitchen lights were burned out. Palmetto bugs (cockroaches) got into our food stuff in the pantry. Sliding glass door impossible to open/close and just got harder and harder. I could not close it enough to lock it only my husband could. One night it fell while trying and knocked the screen off the track and hurt his arm.<br/><br/>We arrived late Sat evening and called for maintenance Sun morning. Tues afternoon someone showed up, accomplished nothing and left with promise to come back next morning. Nobody ever ever came back.
Our Number One priority is always to be close enough to see, hear, and smell the surf -- and Vilano Dolphin gets a 5-star rating for that. With only minor regrets we have to honestly downgrade 'general condition' to a 4 because of neglected maintenance including a damaged sofa, burned out bulbs, minor bathroom plumbing, and a dining room chandelier that we think has a burned out wall switch since new bulbs we bought ourselves didn't fix it. We also downgraded 'cleanliness' to a 4 because of some obvious litter on the property and in the garage, plus windows that we had to wash ourselves when we arrived -- for the $250 cleaning fee we expected better. It's not the owner's fault, but we regretfully also downgrade 'location' to a 4 simply because the beach is too rough to enjoy walking barefoot -- the sand is almost nothing but crushed and broken shells -- unlike the silky smooth sand on the beach 5-10 miles further south. All that being said, there was so much to love about this place that we could forgive those defects. After adding points for the 5-star property management staff, we couldn't come up with less than an overall 5-star rating. It was a fabulous vacation with almost perfect weather. The bottom line is that this was by far the best property we've tried in St. Augustine, so maybe we'll give the Vilano Flamingo unit at the other end of the same 3-unit building a try next year.
Perfect location.The house has all necessary amenities and nice furniture (except one couch arm needs repair). There was a problem with the oven not working but the whole unit was replaced the next morning. One set of sheets & moldy shower curtain all had to be washed before 1st use (sheets clearly had been used and not washed). Dining room chandelier and garage remote don't work, and the sliding door is extremely hard to open. Minor things that should be fixed and should have been caught by the cleaning crew. All this aside we did enjoy our stay.
I LIKE THE LOCATION AND THE HOUSE BUT THERE WERE A COUPLE THINGS I WISH HAD BEEN DIFFERENT.<br/>WE PURCHASED ALOT OF FOOD TO BE PREPARED USING THE OVEN WHICH UNFORTUNATELY DIDN'T WORK AND WHEN WE CALLED ABOUT IT NO ONE CAME TO FIX THE PROBLEM. THIS MAY NOT SOUND LIKE MUCH BUT IT COST ME CONSIDERABLE, WITH WASTED FOOD THAT WE BOUGHT AND THEN EATING OUT THERE IS NOT CHEAP. THE LOVE SEAT NEEDED REPAIRED OR REPLACED. THE MASTER BED ROOM CLOSET LIGHT ONLY WORK SOMETIMES. THE VACUUM CLEANER BARELY WORKED. I DID ENJOY THE VIEW AND THE SUN ROOM, GREAT PLACE FOR A MORNING CUP OF COFFEE.
the unit was beautiful, especially the solarium that overlooked the ocean. My wife and I spent many hours in that space looking at the ocean. We just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay in this unit. You can use my comments but I'm not wanting any competition for this place next year!
Consistent, clean, and high quality. BBQ and outdoor shower needs repair, but since we were not there for either of those, it was not a factor.
