About Stockton Realty, VTrips
Hi! My name is Steve Milo and I started Vacation Rental Pros in 2006. Our family stays in vacation rental homes whenever we travel, both domestically and abroad! I own several vacation homes and listen carefully to all our guests' feedback. Our greatest compliment is when folks refer Vacation Rental Pros to their friends and relatives. We now manage over 1,800 properties in Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina. We have homes in Ft. Myers Beach, Orlando, St. Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast, Ponte Vedra Beach, Hilton Head and Gatlinburg. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2016. Please call if you need help booking your dream vacation!
Exactly as described
This property is a great spot on the beach. It's surrounded by beautiful homes and this is an older beach house amongst them. The pictures are exactly as posted so it was no shock. (In fact, I was shocked at how new the other homes looked!) I felt we might pass the house as it's a fast street and you're just looking for the number on a mailbox. Upon finding the house, it was surrounded by vegetation unlike other properties. Not an issue for us, but was interesting compared to other houses in the area. I confess I was a bit worried upon arrival as shorts had been left on one side of the deck - still not sure where they came from - and I had a little bit of difficulty accessing the keys, but once we got in, the house was nice and clean. A note was left about some housekeeping details and I was bit disappointed that the oven wasn't working while we were there as that hindered some plans for meals.
My daughter informed me the first night that her shower did not heat up. I figured I would call the property management the next day since it was late (and they were very helpful with the Wi-Fi when we arrived - that was my error). Upon waking, I tried twice to make coffee and it wasn't working properly. I called property management and they responded quickly, fixing the water heater and bringing a coffee maker! I was NOT disappointed with the service from property management as they were quick to assist and made certain I was satisfied. My kids liked the house but my daughter said the guest bed was not that comfortable. My son, who can pretty much sleep anywhere, slept fine on the couch. I would consider staying again because the beach is heavenly and the views were great!
Beautiful beach for shelling
Beautiful beach. Had a blast shelling. The home needs some upgrades but was nice enough for a 3 night stay
We are so grateful to have had you stay with us during your vacation. If there was anything else we could have done to make your stay more enjoyable, it would have been our pleasure. We pride ourselves in being able to bring our guests budget friendly options. As they may miss some of the frills and thrills, it is perfect for those seeking adventure. There is always room for improvement and we will be sure to let our guests know as we make updates or changes. Again, we thank for your feedback and we look forward to seeing you next time.
Worst property ever
If you have family and kids, this is definitely a house not to consider. The house is full of spider webs and deck is full of splinters. This property is very unsafe, even after reporting, V trip company did nothing to make our stay better. Also beds are horrible.
During our stay, kitchen had no oven or exhaust, A/C did not work properly.
List goes on and on... We stay every year at 2 Properties and Trust me when I say this, we will never recommend this property.
Also the beach is very Shelly not much sandy but it doesn’t bother after a Day.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOUSE
This is definitely not what we want our guests to ever think regarding their vacationing rental experience. We apologize for the inconveniences that you endured. Understanding your frustrations and discontent, it was not our intentions to cause you any stress. Guest safety is something that we take very seriously and do not take lightly. We extend our deepest regrets if you felt that there were pressing matters that were not addressed. We are fully committed to making things right and have begun the process to review each complaint thoroughly. It is our goal to reestablish your trust and you will be glad to know that we have resolved the kitchen situation and are on track to rectify any remaining issues. We again want to thank you for your feedback, as this is how we can improve and make sure that we are providing the best accommodations for our guests as possible. Whilst we understand that you may be reluctant to return, we hope that you will reconsider.
A great vacation!
We were very pleased with our stay at Coastal Charm. The beach was just a few yards from the back patio and shelling was abundant. The house was open and uncluttered with lots of space for our guests to visit. The washer and dryer room downstairs had another room behind it which was plenty big enough to set up our ping pong table for our sons and their friends to enjoy. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and plenty of utensils, plates and silverware. The kitchen appliances all worked beautifully except the toaster (which by the way should be condemned). The nearest grocery stores are 10 miles either way on Route A1A so if you are grocery shopping prior to checking in you should be aware that you might need TP, paper towels, hand soap, shampoo and body wash, dish soap and a sponge, laundry soap as these are not provided. There was parking enough in the driveway for 4 cars as well as plenty of street parking on the other side of the road off of the bike route. The posting for this property is incorrect though, it is not in Jacksonville beach as the map shows, it is on Ponte Vedra Blvd. next to the Guana River. It was a beautiful open area that is peaceful and quiet with an unpopulated beach and plenty to explore for all ages. Thank you so much for sharing your house!
Perfect location, could use some home improvements
The location of the home is perfect. Right on the beach with VERY minimal beach "traffic". The back deck was a great place to watch the sunrise each morning. The house has charm and was good for our short stay. The Master BR was large and nice. But the guest room could use a new mattress and some updating.
The only real issues I found were:
1) the yard....or lack of it. With this being a pet friendly house, there is no yard area for the dogs to "do their business". The front yard is mostly palmettos (lining the entire drive) and a large patch of waist-high weeds (a mix of stinging nettles and beggar's lice). My dogs were covered in "beggar's lice" off the weeds every time they went into the "yard". I actually pulled weeds from a large portion of the "yard" just so I could stop picking the "beggar's lice" off my dogs each time they went out. A little mowing and weed-eating would do wonders and make things a lot more pet-friendly.
2) Housekeeping- the house keeping looked like it was rushed. Though the bedding and towel were clean and neat- There was "left over" dried toothpaste on the counter in the the master bath and there were several sticky spots left by the previous guests on the kitchen counter (kind of gross). The floor didn't feel very clean, but it is a beach house.
This house was great for our short stay, but I probably wouldn't enjoy a 7 night stay here - mostly because of the needed improvements (blinds on sliding glass door fell off every time I opened them, deck on the verge of needing repair (had to remove 2 splinters from my hand), batteries in all but one remote (tv/dvr) were dead, yard is REALLY over grown and has trash laying about.)
A little TLC to this house and it would make for a great place to stay for an extended period of time. Location can't be beat.
Skip this rental!! So many things wrong upon checking in, faulty wiring, lights constantly flickering when various appliances run, even as small as the broken toaster. Incomplete kitchen utensils, lights that don't work all over the house. Their solution is to drop off bulbs / did not even take the time to install. Broken RUSTY grill, deck table and chairs cheap and broken, top of table not even secured. Furniture so stained it appears to have been used at a frat house in a former life - called several times for resolution, never got resolution; instead got employees that talked over me and gave me the run around. Filthy floors upon check in, bare feet black, I had to mop floors myself. Mold in the showers, cigarette butts and trash all around the property, some hurricane debris on beach that should be removed. Screen ripped on patio door, door handle on entrance door hanging by a thread, lights hanging from their housing....simply unbelievable that they represent this as coastal charm. Coastal nightmare is more accurate! It is a shame because the property could be quite charming with some tlc. The Mgmt company is inept and uncaring - impossible to get in touch with the decision makers to get resolution. I would like 50% of my money refunded and they should fix all of the items that are broken or missing before renting to another client. The maintainence man that came on Wed said many of the items that needed repair had been that way for several months. Pull out sofa is back breaking, so horrible that we purchased an air mattress to sleep on.
