Beat Up House with an Unresponsive Owner!

  • 1 of 5

Not accurately described. Pictures and writeup did not reflect what I experienced upon my arrival. I came up with my family (wife, 2 kids and a nanny) and staying a full week trying to make the best of it.

Overall setup and location of the house is nice. Neighborhood is quite and no complaints on adjacent neighbors. Easy to navigate through the house except for the spiral staircase which was a bit of a pain to get luggage up. Deck areas are nice and in abundance.

Upon entering the house the AC was completely shut off and the temperature of the house was well above 90 degrees which made it extremely uncomfortable after a long drive with children. I was soaked after transferring all the luggage from the car and in combination with what was going on with kitchen, didn't make a great welcome. Took roughly 6-8 hrs to cool it down.

Even though the "appliances are new" the kitchen was not. Worn cabinetry, broken handles, and a stale smell coming from many of them. Kitchen was not at all cleaned - even though Jeff claimed it was. Dirty range with boil over cooking stains, fridge with food spillage throughout the shelves, oder coming from the fridge which was beyond repulsive. My wife had to clean up the fridge otherwise our purchased groceries would have spoiled. Ice maker wasn't working and the ice tray had brown/black spots all over it. Grease stains on the walls and was just in overall terrible shape. Roof deck fridge is busted. No apologies from Jeff and his solve was to bring in the cleaning crew the next day, which was a huge inconvenience while my family was trying to relax.

The entire house has the feel as it has been rented quite a bit with chipped painted on almost every door, very visually displeasing. All walls have scuff marks & splattered mosquitoes embedded into it. Cobwebs were found in numerous areas as well.

In the driveway Jeff left his boat hitch making it impossible to maneuver with a large car.

Overall Jeff was not responsive and at times replied after a few follow-ups. During our stay the pool pump stopped working and the water level dropped. Alerted him twice and in response instead of an apology told me i hope that it didn’t effect the pump - “you should have alerted me earlier”. Not cool as I had to clean the pool daily with all the stuff that didn’t filter - bugs, insects, foliage, etc.

There are ton of other things to mention but iIll leave it as is. Not worth reliving this nightmare and recommend avoiding.

Owner's Response: This review really caught me by surprise since the guest and I were in constant communication leading up to his arrival. Having hosted guests in this house for the last 6 yrs, this is the first time I’ve had somebody not fully enjoy their stay. I would suggest that anyone considering the validity of this review examine the others here on this website and the other leading vacation rental website. The tenant seemed to believe he was going to be vacationing at a brand new house. The reality is that this is a 30 yr old beach house that I am continuously upgrading, as I live here year round when not renting out in the summer. The house is professionally cleaned every spring and again after every guest departure. Is it possible that my cleaners may have missed a cobweb in one of the corners, 10 ft off the ground? Perhaps a smudge on the range top or in the fridge might have been missed, but it was never an issue for any of the guests I’ve hosted in the past (best seen in the very next review on this site). When some of this was brought to my attention in great detail the night of this reviewer’s arrival, I responded immediately with another cleaning the next morning. I followed up with another conversation to make sure that the guest was satisfied. I pride myself on being in touch with guests and taking care of any issues that may arise ASAP…you can read about that in other reviews as well. As a result of this review, I will be taking a more proactive role in setting the expectations of the guest (i.e. this is not a new hotel). In addition, I am planning on repainting the house (interior and exterior), refinishing the hardwood floors, and deck/railing renovation so please inquire about the status of the Spring 2016 renovation.

The prior reviews are right on. The location is walking distance to nice bay beaches and the views are great. Jeff could not have made it easier to enjoy a nice relaxing week.

A very relaxing week in the Hamptons

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this beautiful house. The owner (Jeff) provides great customer service, is available and attentive to the needs and concerns of his guests. Any little question we had was answered immediately. The house is beautiful, the pool is amazing, the kitchen, bbq, beds all make for great hanging out and relaxing. The roof deck is the perfect place to end your day while watching the sunset. We will be back and recommend this property to anyone. The pictures don't even do it justice. This house is great.

Great retreat, away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a most wonderful stay at Jeff's place. Jeff was an absolute pleasure to deal with and a wonderful host. If a quiet restful week away from the hectic daily grind is your objective, this is the place for you. You simply can't beat the sunsets from the rooftop deck. Nicely furnished, comfortable and relaxing; look forward to returning.
