Pervasive, Musty, Moldy, Unhealthy Air in Entire House

  • 1 of 5

When my family entered this house, we were shocked by its pervasive, moldy and musty odor. This horrible smell filled every room, making it uncomfortable and unhealthy to breathe as well as enjoy any time inside the property.

This horrible odor was very prominent in the one & only bathroom, the kitchen, as well as in the air coming from all the window air conditioners. The distinctive mildew, moldy smell was so strong, it made it very uncomfortable to breathe at times.

Living inside this unhealthy environment was not what my family expected when renting this vacation property.

Our guess is this house has a long-standing mold and mildew problem from extensive water damage (because it affected every room in the house) and old A/Cs whose filters have probably never been changed.

When we told the realtor, she offered to find a new house, but then later claimed she had none available. The owner, when contacted, offered a dehumidifier (which by the way, removes only humidity, not the effects of rotting, wet wood and sheet rock).

If you rent a house, cash the check weeks before the actual vacation date, then you (realtor and owner) have a moral and contractual obligation to provide a house that is not only as advertised but also one with a healthy, livable environment.

Final advice: Rent from a different realtor and property owner. Staying here will make you unhappy, unhealthy, and unable to work with people who knowingly rented a house in need of serious repair.

awesome family fun week!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here last summer, the week of my daughter's 10th birthday. We hosted both kids friends for part of the week and had a big family party on the deck for her was her best birthday ever! Plenty to do in the area and we found a great beach near the Ocean Mist that we could park on the street and walk less than 5 minutes for free. The house was nicely decorated with all the conveniences of home, clean and the outdoor shower was great for rinsing the sand off. Will be booking again this summer. Great location close to shopping but still a nice quiet neighborhood for the kids to walk the dog. Our new favorite restaurant, Arturo Joe's, is less than 5 minutes away.
