LET THE RENTER BEWARE.
I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was clean.
The property manager was more than helpful.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.
Factors that may be principle to your choice of this rental are misleading and not disclosed. Factor 1) Security: The house shows evidence of a break-in or attempted break-in. Factor 2) WiFi: the house features a Smart TV (connects to the internet via WiFi), which offers a Netflix movie option to those with an account for same. However, if you use this Smart TV option your are charged $35.00 a day for one month of bandwidth (disregarding any bandwidth used by prior renters)and the WiFi is turned off with the option to continue the service for an additional $35.00 each day. Factor 3): The outdoor grill had only enough propane for 20min.s of cooking time, and was unclean. Factor 4): The shower/baths had a plethora of dead insects. Please don’t get the impression that we did not find the resort pleasurable, we have spent over $65,000.00 in past rentals and will continue coming back. Next time I will hope for a more favorable experience

I understand that you had some issues with the Wi-Fi and that Miss Barbara has already explained those charges. I would like to address your other concerns. We have NEVER had a break in at Irish Beach at any of our homes. However, a renter locked himself out of the house while in the hot tub, sans clothing, and broke the door down to get back in. Unfortunately, the door costs thousands of dollars to replace it. The Owner refuses to put a claim in for his home owner's insurance and there we stand. You've rented with IBRA enough times to know that if you had notified the Office that the propane tank ran out, we would have gotten it refilled at the local KOA immediately. If you rent Cypress again, there is a spare propane tank kept on a shelf in the garage. Although, housekeeping report states the BBQ grill was clean, if you found it not to your standards you could have notified the Office so that we could have had it re-cleaned for you. And, yes, the sowbugs appear daily at the houses in Irish Beach. It is a Coastal nuisance. The Owner, himself, occupied the house prior to your arrival and says he wiped the dead bugs up out of the bathrooms prior to his departure. I'm sorry your stay was unsatisfactory. Hopefully, y
