Great for a weekend with friends but wouldn't be thrilled having my family there
The house was good but needed some tlc. The neighborhood is great. The rental exterior needs a deep cleaning and some things could use replacing. Door locks were corroded and difficult to lock and unlock. The screened in porch had several holes in it and some of the patio furniture was rusted. Bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean.
Great house - could use a little more owner attention
This house is large inside & out, with numerous decks offering views in nearly every direction. Two decks offer superb views of the Indian River Bay and marshy grasses (which are loaded with egrets, heron, and osprey).
The only complaint is that the house could use some periodic attention from the owner or rental company to address nuisance issues:
- Water lines don't seem to be hooked up to the outdoor shower
- Ice maker doesn't work
- Fans don't work in the master bath
- Light bulbs are missing in numerous places
If you don't mind these minor hassles, it's a great house.
Not well taken care of
There are a number of positives about this unit:
The numerous balconies
It's pet friendly
But there are a lot more negatives:
The oven was filthy, we had to clean it ourselves before using it
The dishwasher wasn't attached to anything and kept tilting forward
The exhaust fans in the master bath were both disconnected
The garbage disposal wasn't working and a repairman had to come out
The internet is open and unsecured (we bought our own router and hooked it up for the week)
The pool is tiny, but we could live with that alone.
There were five light bulbs that needed replacing
The outdoor shower didn't work
The master bedroom fan starts buzzing (annoyingly) after just a few moments of use
The bathroom wallpaper is peeling off the walls in numerous locations
The icemaker doesn't work
We had to tighten three of the door handles so they would lock
The realtor was very unresponsive to inquiries and not very accommodating to our requests
Our vacation was great, we LOVED the views from this unit and that it was on the water but I don't think we'll be renting this unit ever again because of the lack of maintenance and lack of care from the realtor.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I looked back on our maintenance records and we do have a recorded call requesting service for the clogged garbage disposal, light bulbs and fan. The property was a model unit and for some reason they never wired the fan in the master suite! We called an electrician to do so, but he informed us it was a major undertaking and could not be done at that time. I understand the light bulbs were in a tall ceiling requiring a ladder - which we did address. The garbage disposal had something lodge in it. This was also fixed. As for the dishwasher. The counter is granite and there is no way to easily attach it without causing possible damage to the counter. No vendor that we called was willing to risk breaking the granite. I am still working to address this issue. I have no knowledge that there is anything wrong with the outside shower. Not all homes have icemakers. This property has a refrigerator with an ice maker - but the icemaker function has been turned off. We attempted to have it fixed (it is defective) and the only option is to replace the entire unit. The owner does not yet see the need to spend $2000 on an icemaker. I apologize that you felt we were unresponsive. I do show that we sent maintenance to address your issues when you called. This unit has a high occupancy - year round, which makes it difficult to do the larger projects. We try to make sure that all of our units are clean and well maintained. We strive to meet and exceed all expectations when it comes to customer service.
