Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! The location was ideal for walking to restaurants, shopping, and the beach. The condo was small but comfortable for our family of four and the area was very quiet. Beds were comfortable and furnishings adequate. Our only complaint would be parking. It was a bit of a struggle on the weekend especially; although we always found a spot, it could be half a mile from the condo. All in all, we highly recommend!

If you love to clean, this is the place for you!

  • 3 of 5

Pros: The property is as pictured. Nicely decorated, well equipped and in a good location. Parking is a pain, but if you know the town well you can easily find free parking nearby.

Cons: Upon arrival I immediately had to began cleaning. There was dust everywhere, the kitchen faucet had built up grime, the couch was covered in hair, dust, food bits and unidentifiable dirt (nail clippings?). The interior of the pull out bed was thick with dust. Under the couch was a treasure trove of food and dirt. The bathroom was disgusting. The tub was clearly dirty, the floor was sickening and the toilet needed cleaning. Thick dust on the headboard, lamps, fan and behind the bed and doors was months old. The kitchen light shades were greasy and dusty, the dishes needed rewashing and the wastebasket was too small and in need of a scrubbing. There was more, but space is limited.

After spending a few hours cleaning, I contacted the owners via text and photos; including one of the vacuum that was packed with dirt and crud that had to be cleaned before use. I told them about the state of the property and acknowledged that they live in Texas and can not personally over see the rental. I shared that I hated to complain, but the cleaners were not doing their job and I thought they should know. I also politely told them it was unacceptable that I needed to clean in order to stay. I got no response.

Not wanting to deal further with the situation during my vacation, I waited until I got home to email the owners and ask if they got my text about the dirty condition of the property. They responded, "Yes, thank you for your concern. We have forwarded them to our cleaning crew. Hope you enjoyed Rockport as much as we do." I replied, "I would enjoy at least $100 for my efforts. It really was not acceptable." The reply was: "My husband takes care of all things related to the condo; I just send his messages on my computer. I will show him your request. He is, however, hospitalized at this time and I am not sure when he might be released. Sorry" I responded with best wishes for a speedy recovery and that has been the end of communication.

Bottom line, I had a great vacation. However, I paid good money for the rental, should not have had to clean and do not feel my concern about the cleanliness was handled properly. Heck! It wasn't handled at all!!! I am happy to say that I left it in better shape than I found it. To my fellow renters who follow; "You are welcome!"

Exactly what we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this apartment was what we had hoped for and more. It was in perfect condition and amazingly well equipped. Rockport is a lovely town and the location of the apartment could not be better. We stayed for nearly two months and hope to go back. The owners were helpful in all respects and seemed to have thought of everything.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to have a honeymoon. Wonderful views, characteristic property with quality amenities. Linen through to decor was elegant but enough personal touches to be a home away from home.

Great central location a stones throw from the beach. The waves could be heard in the apartment and we enjoyed each sun rise view over the Atlantic. We were a short walk to the Sandy bay Yacht club, and a mi ute to a lovely book store. The weekly farmers market is ashore walk too.

We would highly recommend this property and will certainly be back again.

Disappointment

  • 2 of 5

First, I will state that nothing was mis-stated in the ad, the location was close to everything and walkable. When walking in, we noticed sand/dirt under our feet and thought it must have somehow been us. However, putting away our things, we realized that the 'fridge hadn't been cleaned, the oven and stovetop were dirty, dirty socks were in the drawer under the bed and used tampons in the bath. The towels were musty and damp-smelling but the biggest surprise was when I realized the pillow in the case was brown. A trip to the grocery for detergent was made to wash all the sheets/towels and alleviated the smells but when the bed was stripped, no mattress cover was there to cover up the stains, gross. The owner seemed nice but his response was "We live in Texas and have to depend on 'good faith' that our cleaners meet our standards"..."so sorry". Obviously the cleaners never came. I've never had to clean a rental when I got there. Since we arrived on a Sunday in August we had to park 1.3 miles away in the town lot and take a bus back, so you really can't use your car on the weekend as you'll lose your space nearby on the hill.

Owner's Response: Dear potential renters, We try to respond to all concerns in a quick and responsible manner. This is the first and only negative report we had received. This customer rented from us six months ago and had legitimate cleanliness concerns about the property. After discussing several options with her, we refunded her expenses for the cleaning she did. We have reviewed the cleaning procedures with the cleaning service and strive to provide our customers with a great experience during their stay.
