Cute little home in Ocean Lakes! Loved communicating with Glenda!
The first day of our arrival the next door neighbor came out hollering as soon as we arrived and was very rude as there was limited parking for the ONE vehicle (Tahoe) we drove in. We overlooked this, even though this neighbor that lives there year round thought it was appropriate to call grown folks names. The home was clean. Must provide sheets and toiletries which is standard at most OL homes. We rented three different houses for our entire family vacation week ranging from this house price to 4000.00 for the week without any problems at the other two homes. On our way home apx 40 minutes into the drive we received an email that there would not be a return of the $100.00 deposit for this house with a note that “items were stolen, the house was dirty, and trash was on the floor”. We cleaned the house prior to leaving, sweeping, mopping and ensuring the house was clean, including the porch outside as well. We took pictures to ensure there was no issues. Since no one would answer the phone we turned around to go back to the house to find out what the problem was as it wasn’t about the 100.00 deposit to me but being wrongfully accused of something that did not happen. Once we arrived back to rectify any concern, Glenda was completely disrespectful and unable to maintain control of herself hollering. Harry on the other hand was a complete gentleman and was able to talk calmly. Once I asked what was ‘stolen’ Glenda spoke up and said ‘paper towels and toilet paper’ yet we had to go to Walmart as soon as we arrived to buy these items cause there was none in the house which was also okay as that is standard at OL. Harry said to Glenda ‘I never told you they stole anything’. On a side note - we would never take anything that does not belong to us. Of course Glenda got madder. She was completely unprofessional yet I would not allow her to get an arousal out of me in return. I asked what was the trash on the floor as reported and Glenda said ‘potato chips under the table’. We did have two children - age 1 and 2 - and it is completely possible they dropped some chips before we left without me realizing it. I offered to immediately get it up and help with anything but Glenda said rudely ‘I have it up now’. It was really sad to see how Glenda was talking to Harry in the disrespectful and condescending manner she was talking to him in as he remained so humble and acknowledged her inappropriate behavior. Overall we love Ocean Lakes but not this home.
We would like to apologized for the statement that was made about items being taken from the beach house. It was a misunderstanding and could have been avoided entirely. My husband was wrong about things missing. He should have checked again before making that statement to me and I apologize for what was said. With all that being said she would be welcomed to stay at our house again. Thank you
Awesome place to stay
The place was super clean and had everything we needed fir a wonderful week away with the grandchildren
Great for 2 or 4 guest
Very nice, clean place. Furnished with everything you need except linens. Located in neighborhood past South Gate entrance of Ocean Lakes. Need a golf cart though or bikes to get to pool and beach. Owners Harry & Glenda are great people!
I could not have asked for anything nicer than this absolutely spotless home away from home. Beautiful accommodations. Beautiful kitchen and extremely nice furnishings. I would tell anyone this is one of the best places to stay in Ocean Lakes.
Home away from home!!
My best friend & I wanted a girls get-away a couple years ago as going to the beach has been an every summer thing for us since we were little. We found Hankins Paradise on VRBO and we weren't hesitant at all about staying here after speaking with Glenda. The Hankins are two of the nicest people I've met, and made us feel very comfortable doing business with them. They have done a wonderful job with their little vacation get-away home, always updating things and changing things around. My husband & I also took a weeks vacation that same year, and we stayed there...We enjoyed our stay here so much, we spent our honeymoon here last September! If you're looking for a cozy, but fun, home away from home...this is it! It isn't huge, but it's "homey".. We will not stay anywhere else at the beach ever again! I give this place a 5 star rating.. I can say the only thing it's lacking is parking space! It has a beautiful front porch sitting area, every time we've cooked here, we've ate outside on the porch and it is so relaxing! This house is best for couples/couples with small children, and/or friends get-away with a few people. Not too mention, the price is amazing! You definitely get what you pay for & more! Love this place!!!!
