Wonderful beach house!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Definitely a 5 star house! We loved the layout of the house. The master bedroom was spacious and comfy. Wonderful living room. Best part of house is the beautiful and cool pool in the backyard. We couldn't get the kids out of it! Great grill, great outdoor seating. Lunch outside everyday! Wonderful beach --never crowded, almost seemed like a private beach. We rented bikes and headed to Coligny Square a few times. Lovely beach, pool, comfy house! Living room perfect for a movie night. Wonderful time!!! Laura was extremely responsive and attentive. Will be back in 2018!!

We did encounter some problems upon arrival but they were resolved with the help of the owners on a timely basis. The location is good, near the beach, the patio and deck from the house to the pool and hot tub was well maintained and well appointed with tables and chairs. A new grill was located on the patio. Will work well for small children as well as elderly guests since it is all one level.

Owner's Response: glad we were able to respond to your issues at the house and get the tv's online with the cable company and get the tech to take care of hot tub cutoffs; we hate to see those amenities break down as much as our customers do! the backyard is always a favorite place for our guests. appreciate your note

Mallard Beach House

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week in this house! The owner (Laura) was easy to work with and attentive. The house is in a great location, just a 5 minute walk to the beach and convenient to Coligny. The home is a comfortable size for two families (we had four adults and four children). We appreciated that the dining table seats 8, so we could all sit together for meals. The outdoor space is lovely - plenty of seating there as well and the pool is terrific! The beach wagon, chairs, and toys that were available for our use was a nice plus as well.

Owner's Response: Hi Maya, glad you have a good vacation with your families! the house is comfortable and we work on updating it every year; this year with roman shades and plantation blinds; new bedspreads; the outdoor areas are updated too, especially since the sun does a number on the area rugs, umbrellas and wood decking Come back next year to see what's new! Regards to all

Great home for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults and 5 children in this house and had a great week in HHI! Laura was great to work with from our first inquiry and during our stay. The house was clean, well equipped with kitchen supplies/pots/pans, etc. and ready when we arrived. The walk to the beach is a short 2 blocks and we loved the wagon to cart our beach stuff. The pool, hot tub and outside patio were very enjoyable! Overall, a great rental property and pleased with the owner checking in with us once we were settled.

NOT renter friendly, great potential, sad

  • 1 of 5

Wish we had seen the previous review earlier...

No sleeper sofa as advertised, new sofa, but not sleeper - due to the generational gathering of our family - we needed the extra sleeping areas for grandparents and teenage children of opposite sex. Upon arrival - refrigerator was full of food, even boxes of leftovers - the cleaning service was quick to respond, but we had to wait to have items removed and cleaning done so we could unload our food items. Pantry areas were also full of others food items, we were able to clean out one pantry area in order to unload our own items, but the other areas were overloaded with flower vases and excess dishes. Hot tub stopped working on Sat. evening - upon calling owners, we were instructed to check the circuit box, breaker had blown, did again over the next several days, even after the actual repairmen came out on Thursday. The cable did not work on Sat. @ check in and the WiFi was not stable - we spent 2 hours on the phone with the cable company - long story short, the technician show up on Monday on time, 2 hours later he reported that he had changed out all 3 cable boxes (one dated 2009) and was surprised that any type of signal was coming through, things were so out of date and misconnected. We had no other problems after that. But 4 hours of our time lost! Description & pictures (out of date) posted on VRBO & their website states that this property is "expertly decorated" - that is a stretch, dated borders are coming off the wall in some areas and the extra large Disney princess wall decor & fairies in the hallway were not welcoming - along with the extra large Minnie Mouse on the the twin bedroom door. All the fake plants are dusty & broken, dirty carpet, moldy blinds...TOO MUCH personal clutter, no place to "unpack" as renters. Lightbulbs missing from fixtures, backdoor light fixture didn't work, back door deadbolt handle falls off, 2nd master bathroom closet missing a handle, had to use the sharp end of the screw to open the door, ceiling fan light fixture didn't turn off, had to unscrew lightbulbs. Icing on the cake - mold in the ice dispenser discovered on Friday. During the course of the week, we spent time on the phone explaining the fact that there were some missing pieces in the house in order to make it a great rental. We felt we were due an additional refund, but were told that the owners felt that they had handled everything via the phone, so only the stated damage deposit would be refunded.

Owner's Response: very sad; we responded appropriately to the mechanical issues (tv and hot tub) and apologized for cleaning service overlook of fridge in spite of the numbers chats back and forth (including having our pool guy check out the hot tub 3 days in a row.....fine.....until the tech could stop in; it was a leak that was fixed), the assorted complaints were not noted (and obviously not brought up until the prior disaster review was'll note that was the first of 41 5 star reviews we've had over the last 12 years) 1. we appreciated your interior design ideas, but our pictures have ALWAYS appropriately shown accurate pix; most of our families have young ones and love the decals.....just a style issue 2. you booked for 6 adults/1 child; why a sofa bed would be an issue is beyond us unless you had extra folks staying (not in our contract); the brand new microsuede sofaset has a lounge area that we would only recommend if a group has more than EIGHT; we would only recommend for young'uns 3. we have had intense rains and, yes, there is one tiny corner of one border in the queen room.....when rains are done, that will be simply fixed; 4. you never mentioned "moldy" blinds or dirty carpets until you reviewed the prior review 5. handyman would have gladly popped in to fix the other miniatuia 6. same cleaning service that did not do a full job, could have come back to finish the rest 7. as far as clutter.....the one pantry has miscellaneous large plastic bowls and a few vases (as people love our flowers and cut them to bring in); can't imagine how much stuff you needed to stuff in there happy travels laura h

Nice yard and pool-That's it

  • 1 of 5

We had a 4:00 check in. A few minutes before we arrived I received an e mail stating the cleaning people had an emergency and had to leave before the house was completed and they were 99% done. We walked in to a sty. One bedroom was done. That's it. We couldn't unpack and didn't know where to put our luggage because the house was so dirty. The cleaning people arrived while I was on the phone with Laura and the owner stated he had been trying to get them out for 2 days before we arrived but they wouldn't leave. They live there for the winter so you can imagine what we came into. During my phone call with Laura she stated she would credit me that day.. She just contacted me and stated we would be receiving 1/3 of what she owes me. Our day was ruined.the cleaning people left one bed had to be completely stripped because the linens smelled. We found shoes and socks under the couch and more items under the bed in another bedroom. There is mold on the blinds and marks on the ceiling from a leak in another bedroom. The carpeting was dirty in all rooms and I have photos to prove it. We had to wash every glass or dish we used because they were not clean. The owner stated the unit slept 10. It did not. It slept 8. I wouldn't recommend this property to someone I didn't like much less a friend or family. I have used VRBO before and NEVER had a problem. This is the first. I don't know if you will not post this review but something needs to be done about the condition of that house so other renters don't have the same problems.

Owner's Response: Very sad to read this report; communication was impossible with renter on phone due to the chorus of folks; you talked to Laura Holtzman, the proud owner of 3 Mallard Street.......your comments about the "owner" unable to get the winter renters out was one of many misrepresentations 1. house was not ready; information I gave you at first was from the cleaning crew; obviously it was a bad start to your vacation and we apologized and went about correcting the situation 2. after it was corrected and you were able to stay the whole week, first thought of giving a whole day's rent back didn't make sense; hence $200 refund as token of your inconvenience 3. the house is not a sty; never has been a sty; never will be as evidenced by the lovely guests we've had at the house over the past 12 years 4. comment on sleeping arrangements incorrect; you booked a group of 6 adults/2 children; we have bedding for 8 folks in 4 bedrooms; had you planned to book more, you would have talked to me and advised one is a crib and the other is the lounge area on the brand new microsuede sofa Guess we have both have had a first bad experience Laura Holtzman
