The house was beautiful. It met all of our needs. Great communication throughout the process. I will book this house again.
Nothing worth returning to
The home is whatever but besides the esthetics of the home. The beds are extremely uncomfortable and loud. Also, you get ONE toilet paper roll per bathroom, one garbage bag, one paper towel roll, No soap, nothing to clean with. You have have to wash your dishes and put them back in their original place but yet no soap or sponge to wash anything with, you have to remove ALL sheets and towels from the beds and put in the laundry room. Take out the trash from house, Which is fine but you have to pay a clean up fee which is obviously a RIP OFF. And if you’re a planning to go with a large group, you can’t Park more than 4 cars. This is all Just a Heads up. On the positive note, the Communication with the house owner was good, they respond quickly.
What a MESS - Beware!
My family and I arrived late in the evening. 11:00pm to be exact. 17 hours of driving with 2 small children a 7 month old and 2 year old. The house was in disarray. The carpet was filthy. I laid my granddaughter down to crawl and dirt and grime immediately was sticking to her. It was bad. There was a vacuum there fortunately and we did use it. At the same time trying to get everyone ready for bed. This house was advertised to have a baby bed. There were 2 "disassembled" baby beds in the game room!! There was 2 pack n plays - we used both of them. One had a child's medicine cup in it... This was a bad situation. All the beds were made. One of them though had NO fitted sheet on it. The towels didn't feel clean and it was very limited on towels, silverware, pots and pans, ect.. NO trash bags anywhere. The walls and framing are beat up and in bad shape. I could go on and on.This it the worst experience I have ever had from a rental home. The next day I did contact the owner James & Michelle Chen via email. He apologized and gave me a number to call about the condition we found the house in. It was the couple who cleans the house. Marcel said he was there the day before and the house was clean. Clearly he wasn't at this one. Then when I mentioned the cribs - he said yes he didn't have all the parts to put one of them together. Just keep in mind these frames and other junk is just stored in the game room an accident just waiting to happen. This man just wanted to argue with me. No help at all. I contacted the owner again to let him know that we cleaned the house that night and straightened up best we could to feel comfortable staying there. HE didn't respond or offer any money for the cleaning fee. Which I felt would have been fair. I was really disappointed in Mr. Chen. He was very responsive when I was renting his property - but Buyer Beware!! You will not get a response if something goes wrong. Also the Emerald Island Resort didn't care either. Again - I do NOT recommend renting property from James & Michelle Chen. False advertising at its best.
Added note here - James Chen double booked this home and gave me another property that is in Emerald Island Resort. He is NOT to be trusted.
Spacious, room for the entire extended family
House was set up well, plenty of activities available, kitchen was well stocked with utensils, etc. Some slight updating required but overall a very good experience!
Amazing vacation rental!
Every year my family gets together and we travel to Florida. We arrived to the home it was immaculate. The furniture in the home was nice, the rooms were well decorated. We had 3 families in total 9 people, the home accommodated us perfectly with room to spare! After vacationing in Florida for the past 9 years I've come to realize every home will not be perfect I guess if you look close enough you can find fault with every home. The home needed new patio window blinds, we paid for pool heat it wasn't on but the moment we called the management he came out and turned it on for us and was sincere in his apologies! The resort is wonderful, it's a small community, but has a lot to offer its guests. We were so impressed with our stay we are returning to this home again March 2017!
Thank you for renting our home and appreciate your review. Welcome back in future.
House was a nightmare
I have been coming to Solana for the past 10 years. This home by far was the worst. We arrived at this home at midnight after driving 14 hrs. Problems that we encountered:
Lights in foyer, stairway and upstairs were burned out.
House smelled of old smoke and feces.
Sheets in bedrooms had brown stains and were not washed
Patio blinds could not be closed properly
Floors were dirty
Had to throw out food because refrigerator was warm.(I pulled the grate and found dust and hair an inch thick covering the grill and cleaned it).
Freezer had ice and frost build up so that you couldn't close the door properly.
Rusty outside furniture, rust in the pool also moldy around pool area.
My wife and I started cleaning that night, cleaning sheets . Woke up late the next day and bought cleaning supplies to clean the floors kitchen area and the bathrooms and sprayed the house with air freshener. Called mgt. the following day, Indifferent at best, condescending, and at which point, I unloaded on him. I have pictures to verify our experience.
