Unfortunate hidden fee

Rating Details:

The property manager was somewhat unhelpful.

The vacation rental was spotless.

I was very happy with the location.

I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

I was charged $99 for booking via HomeAway, although there is no mention anywhere on the Gulf Coast Rental website nor anywhere during the confirmation nor payment sections. I called both Gulf Coast Rentals and HomeAway (VRBO) and the lady at Gulf Coast rentals, said that VRBO won't let them/Gulf Coast disclose the fee. Seems like a very unfair business practice on both of their parts. -I will not rent from Gulf Coast again, nor will I book anything through VRBO/HomeAway. -On the updside...Portofino property is gorgeous with fantastic views! The apartment "looks" good, its clean, but not modernized - so be careful touching anything, as most of the stuff is old and archaic - the blinds are LITERALLY falling apart, the smoke alarm was going off and there's no one on staff to assist during a weekend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review as we value your feedback. We apologize for the misunderstanding regarding the VRBO/HomeAway fee. Gulf Blue Vacation Rentals did add verbiage to all listings regarding the VRBO/HomeAway fee; however we were subsequently notified by VRBO that the listings would be removed if we did not immediately delete the info about the new fee. When booking online through VRBO/HomeAway, they charge the traveler a service fee on a sliding scale of 4 to 9% based on the cost of the rental (we do not know how the final cost is calculated). Gulf Blue does not receive any of this income. And, thank you for calling attention to several issues in the condo. We have notified the owner to suggest they be remedied. The blinds are being replaced (tomorrow) and other work is ongoing. We hope you enjoyed your stay on Pensacola Beach and hope to welcome you back in the future.

Reviewer Comments:

HAD A GREAT TIME WITH THE FAMILY. I WAS A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED IN THE CONDO CONDITION. I HAD TO REPAIR THE TUB FAUCET AS IT FLEW OFF THE FIRST TIME WE USED IT AND SPRAYED WATER ALL OVER THE ROOM, THE ICE MAKER DID NOT WORK, THE TUB SWITCH FROM TUB TO SHOWER DID NOT WORK AND THE DOOR HANDLES WERE LOOSE AND THE LOCKING MECHANISM TO THE ROOMS WAS NOT SECURE. OTHER THAN THAT WE HAD A GREAT TIME. THE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY, THE LANDSCAPING WAS WELL MAINTAINED.

Reviewer Comments:

Our rental experience was pleasant. We enjoyed the pools at Portofino, but we didn't know we would have to pay for all other amenities (like beach chairs- luckily, we'd brought our own). The unit was nice, but the furniture was huge and made the space feel cramped. We had a great time and would return again.
