Best host ever. Mark and carmen 5 star treatment for guests.

  • 5 of 5

Mark and carmen are incredible hosts. We had a minor issue but they didn't see it that way. They went above and beyond what was needed. Thank you mark and carmen for making our stay great. My teens thank you also for the TV. Super host.

Was not a good place to stay

  • 1 of 5

The master bedroom said king size bed it had a queen size. Only 2 TVs were working out of 3 that was on site. The most terrible thing of ALL BED BUGS AND NOT TO MENTION DOG HAIR..Michael was nice but his wife was not at all.We were told all attractions were 30 min away it was 45 or more away. The condo was not in a good location. I would not stay there again.

Owner's Response: Hi Kelly, We were alarmed to see this review and we can confirm that there are no bed bugs in the unit. We had the mattress inspected immediately as we take these reports very seriously. The other items mentioned have been addressed and corrected. We take pride in the condition of the home and take all feedback very seriously. Our goal is keep guests satisfied from the moment they arrive until they check out. I am not sure who is Michael/wife you are referencing but hope your communication with us was to your satisfaction. We wish you well. Kind Regards, Mark & Carmen

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a little overpriced considering we were charged a cleaning fee and no one came to clean. If we stayed at a hotel we wouldn’t have been charged a cleaning fee at all and our rooms would be cleaned each day. I think for the $180 we paid per day, a cleaning fee in addition should be unnecessary.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving us a review! Just wanted to clarify the cleaning fee charged on HomeAway homes and all vacation rentals are to clean the house after your stay. Townhomes are much larger than hotel spaces and therefore require 2-4 hours to clean and do laundry. Hope this helps clarify the confusion, we loved having you and hope you visit us again. Regards, Mark and Carmen

Very nice town house. Perfect for families.

  • 5 of 5

The town house was perfect for our needs and very clean. Great for families. Property managers Carmen & Mark were easy to work with and very friendly (spoke only with Carmen during our stay). Little Harbor has everything you need to have fun in the sun and have a peaceful, relaxing time. Easy to check in, although I would recommend the pass code to access the town home be emailed or texted the day of check instead of having to call and obtain over the phone just prior to arrival.

Water at beach was not good (more like a lake beach), but we didn't come for the beach. If we wanted a nice beach we could have paid 2-3 times more for a good beach, but it probably would have been crowded and not as peaceful and relaxing as Little Harbor area. Pools were nice and other facilities e.g. restaurants etc were good. We came for the location and convenience to other family members close by. We had a wonderful mini family reunion.

Would stay here again. Thanks to the property managers and the owners for a lovely visit.
