A disaster from the beginning!

  • 1 of 5

Our family of 5 - 3 kids including 1 year old twins, and 9 year old requiring home cooked meals because of allergies, arrived on Sunday only to find out that the stove top is not working - the only reason we picked a condo instead of a hotel.

After calling Bob I found out that he knew about it since Saturday. No phone call beforehand to inform about the issue.

He said he will try to send someone over asap. No one came.

Monday morning (11am) I txt Bob threatening to leave if issue not address within 3 hours. Not being able to feed your kids is not something I was imagining when we booked this condo. Over the phone I was promised that the issue will be fixed very soon. Later that day Monday a 'professional' shows up trying to replace that cook top.

After over 2 hours running between condos (breaker box is in the next unit) he said that the stove top is broken and he can't get another one till Tuesday. At that point I was forced to buy small electrical appliances at a nearby Kmart just to be able to feed our kids. That helped out our situation and after being reassured issue will be fixed on Tuesday we had decided to stay.

Tuesday-'professional' shows up attempting to replace the breakers since apparently he can't get a replacement stove top. After another 2 hours, we are told nothing can be done to fix it because electrical line needed to be replaced.

I txted Bob about that and he said he is sending electricians to work on the issue on Wednesday. I don't know what was he thinking, but obviously his idea of perfect family vacation is staying in a condo where electricians open up walls to replace electric lines. I refused to allow for that to happen. Fix it on your own time.

We left Friday stressed out more than we arrived. Bob refunded the cost of the appliances only AFTER I demanded a refund. No partial refund offered for ruining our first vacation time with our twins.

There are more issues with this condo: portable AC in the living room - exhaust hose kept popping out of the window keeping the room at the cozy 95F - I had to use tape to keep it attached to the window.

Place NOT clean as other reviewers claim: dirty dishes, fridge dirty, floor dirty - spent 2 hour cleaning.

Bedroom AC full of mold - could not use at all with kids. Hair in the tiny shower. Mattress...more like plywood. Laundry next door-VERY loud.

NO INTERNET - claims to provide it

WIFI offered by condo (pay to use) - NOT WORKING in the unit

One huge disappointment!

Owner's Response: I was told by my cleaning person at 6:00pm on Saturday the the cooktop wasn't working. I tried to get someone there immediately but all the repair places were closed unit Monday. The renter checked in on Sunday. I told him I would get someone ASAP. The repair place couldn't get anyone down until Monday (closed on Sunday). He texted me on Monday at 11am threatening to call credit company to cancel if it wasn't fixed in 3 hours. Repair man showed up around 3pm to install new cooktop. He couldn't get it working and came back the next day. It turned out to be an electrical issue that couldn't be fixed without shutting down power to the whole building for 6 to 8 hours. The condo association wouldn't allow this to be fixed until after the rental season. We purchased a portable stove to use but the renter refused to use it. Renter was going to get a partial refund after he check out. He check out early before I could offer it. He never once complained about the other supposed issues, this is the first hearing about them. I have a cleaning person that cleans every week and denied that it was dirty. There is internet, I gave him the login and password. He never told me he couldn't get it to work. This renter was so rude about the cooktop issue. We understand the inconvenience it caused (which we are truly sorry) but he was very confrontational right from the beginning. He threatens to leave if its not fixed in 3 hours and then says to fix it on your own time. Stuff breaks and we try to fix it as best we can. Our condo is very clean and we always have repeat renters. There was no working with this renter.

Terrific Location

  • 3 of 5

Location couldn't be better as you're steps from the beach. Our teenagers loved the pools, although one was closed several hours twice during the week. The unit was spacious for being a 1 bedroom and 6 of us stayed there, although it would have been better for a family of 4. One down-side was the funky moldy smell in the place, especially in the room. We bought tons of air fresheners but they just didn't work. The unit needs a dehumidifier in the bedroom and a good cleaning of the living room furniture. Some upkeep in the bedroom would help. The bunk bed is useless. The shower is so small that if you're overweight, you shouldn't stay here. Overall, it was a pretty good deal and we had a good time.

Owner's Response: We had a specialist come and check about the moldy smell. There was no mold found in our condo.The smell came from the washer/dryer next to us. The vent hose came detached and the smell was entering the condo. The condo association has fixed the washer/dryer issue.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic rental. It was even better than described. 2 adults and three boys (14, 11, 8) for one week.

What we liked:

1. clean, clean, clean!

2. even the building was very clean.

3. grills were cleaned each day (!)

4. the owner even left little things that you tend to forget - bandaids, sunburn spray, even hotel shampoo!

5. great communication with the owner. very professional.

Am referring friends to this property, and will probably rent here again!

A++++++
