The condo was in a great location. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our trip very much. The bedroom to the right when you walk in needs repairs done to the closet door. It does not shut and is off the hinges. Also, a small tv in that room would be great. The kitchen needs some maintenance on the cabinets. The drawer pulls are off on some drawers and the cabinet doors are in need of repair. We had everything we needed for our stay. The property was cleaned very well but the elevators didn't work most of the time we were there. Three young boys were stuck in the elevator for a long time until the fire department showed up to get them out. When we called the property manager, he said he was over 30 minutes away. I feel someone should be a little closer if they are going to maintain a place that large. Overall, the place was very nice and very quiet. This is definitely a place for a wonderful family trip. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. We really enjoyed eating at Duffy's restaurant.
Owner's Response: First of all, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. To your concerns, the closet doors in both the back bedrooms are sliding, not hinged, and I'm constantly putting them back on their rails. I'll have to eventually replace them. Hopefully this fall I will be able to add cable to the back two bedrooms (not easy in a concrete and steel building, can't just pull cable without making multiple holes in the wall) and then will add another TV. Drawer pulls? We arrived the day you left and all of them were in place, but it has happened that renters would have them come off and just throw them in a drawer rather than put them back on. What can I say? As to the broken cabinet door, I've repaired that at least three times and it keeps getting broken (someone will open the bottom freezer door with the cabinet door open and tear it off the hinges), this trip I screwed it permanently to the frame and put a lock on it, plenty of other cabinet space for now. I planned on doing new cabinets, counter tops and appliances this fall but will now wait until we move there and no longer renting it.
This is the first I've heard of elevator issues, they were both totally overhauled in the Spring of 2012, but I found out during our visit there has been issues over the last few weeks, I'll be checking with building management on that. As to having no one on site, what time did this occur with the boys being stuck? There is supposed to be a maintenance person there every day, but they start about 5:30 so they may have been gone for the day.
Hope this answers all your questions.
Thank you again for the mostly positive review.
