Just returned from our week on AMI.
We really loved "The Great Escape". Exterior is immaculate including the landscaping. It's about a block and half from the beach & we either rode bikes down there or walked, no problem. We did find that this is 1 of 2 rental units under the same roof, but that wasn't any problem at all. Interior of the house is as good as the pics or better. We thought that the all tile floors would be cold, but that wasn't the case. Really was nice. We loved the pool, the living area, the kitchen, the bathrooms, the bedrooms, everything!. Only had a couple of issues. The HVAC system is designed such that it doesn't get enough air flow (according to AC guy). So, it is necessary to keep the thermostat set at 75 or higher. The rental instructions provided by Duncan even state that, which is fine. But evidently the renters before us ignored that because the unit was froze up and leaking water all over the hallway floor. We called Duncan, spoke to the manager at about 5pm or so on Tuesday evening, and he had a repair guy there that evening. The guy thawed it out, checked everything out, & just said we needed to keep the thermostat at 76 or so. We did that, & surprisingly that felt pretty good. Didn't seem like the rooms were balanced very well though as the Master bedroom was really cool, living room a few degrees warmer, while the front bedroom just stayed hot. But overall, that was a pretty minor thing.
I did also have issue with the breaker for the master bathroom. I had to go out and reset at least once every day. I reported it to the manager and he suggested that we might be overloading it with hair dryer and other things. He asked me to just pay attention and report back if needed. We found that it wasn't the hair dryer. I think the breaker is just bad, but it really wasn't a big deal. Noticed a little paint issue next to the shower in bathroom 2. And, the grill would never get over about 250 degrees.
Kitchen was well stocked with things needed to cook. Might be nice to have some nicer coffee cups but they were certainly sufficient.
So, altogether, I'm really close to rating it as excellent. I think the house is brand new construction. We would definitely rent here again.
