PLUSES AND MINUSES

  • 3 of 5
Unfortunately, this property did not live up to our expectations. We differ from many renters in that we stayed a month in this home. I can image that someone staying for a week would not have been as bothered.

On the plus side, it had a good location, within easy walking distance of the ferry and the shops. The sunsets could be viewed from the front porch, and were breathtaking. The best feature of the house was the kitchen, which is modern and has several small appliances. The internet service is great. We had an electrical problem and a serviceman showed up that day and fixed it.

The homeowner was very easy to reach by email. She always responded within a day and sought to be accommodating most of the time.

However, considering the rental price, we expected a better maintained property. The hand rail for the steps leading from the street to the yard was broken and duct tape had to be placed over holes in some screens (on the porch and the second floor balcony) to keep the mosqitoes from coming in. The clothes dryer made loud grinding and screeching noises. We dried our clothes on the porch and an outside railing. It was fixed during the third week of our stay, though the owner was notified during the first week of our stay. The VRBO entry advertised satellite television but it was basic cable with about ten channels. One of the king-size beds was two twins pushed together, unevenly at that. Be advised, the fourth bedroom can only be accessed by going through another bedroom, and is a tiny space. We expected the home to be clean when we arrived. The glass doors were dirty, the kitchen counter tops had crumbs and dust behind and under canisters, and who knows how long it had been since the baseboards behind pieces of furniture or the floors under the furniture had been dusted. We have never rented a house in this condition in the 30 years we have rented vacation homes.

In fairness, it is an adequate property. Compared to other properties we have rented in resort areas through the years, this property is not as well maintained.

Owner's Response: It is our consistent practice to have the house professionally cleaned just prior to our guests scheduled arrival. In six years of renting we have never received a complaint about the condition of the property.
