So the 3 stars are primarily owing to miscommunication on booking.
So the 3 stars are primarily owing to miscommunication on booking. We were given this 96 S May vacation home in lieu of another one. We were very happy with the home overall. The space was clean, big, and family friendly and all of us were comfortable including kids! There were plenty of supplies, games, entertainment options that added to our pleasant experience. There were couple problem areas - the mild and mildew smell as soon as entering was obnoxious. We were worried about it since we had kids but we just opened windows and let some fresh air and sunlight do its role. That helped! But definitely something to look into - especially on the first floor. Then, the entrance door wasnt easy to unlock and lock; we figured our way but that could use some fixing too. Other than that, the place was great! The deck and roof ate especially a treat!! We had good weather so we were able to enjoy the property pretty well!
Loved the house last year
This year when you walked in you were hit with a strong mildew smell. The oven had so much crud on the bottom it smoked whenever you used it. There were feces on the toilet. The spreads and blankets were filthy and needed washed. I have been renting beach houses for 30 years so I understand it won't be as clean as my house but this was the worst I have ever dealt with.
Acquiring the accommodation was easy the house itself was not all that great.
Acquiring the accommodation was easy the house itself was not all that great. All of the blankets and spreads needed washed. They were very dirty and disgusting. The downstairs smelled of mldew. It smelled that way last year too. The garbage disposal didn't work and the dishwasher backed up into the sink. The house was not very clean. The tv in the one bedroom did not work 2 years in a row. When you spend a lot of money for vacation and it is not what you expect, needless to say we will not book this house again.
The grill was filthy.
The grill was filthy. I paid over $5000 for a one week rental and no sheets or towels were provided. The furniture in the main area was old and covered with the equivalent of sheets. There was a distinct cat pee smell in the dining area. Not real happy.
Perfect beach retreat
The house was great. The beds were very comfortable. Plenty of room and not far from the beach. We loved the screened in porch but the rooftop was our favorite place to hang out.
Awesome Gina. Thanks for staying with us!
Beautiful home but not clean
We had a great week but there were a few thinks to the house that was not appealing! When we got there the house had a lot of sand in it! Bathrooms had a blood stain on the wall & wet toilet tissue in the other one! Broken screen on porch that we took down so kids wouldn't get hurt! Also smoke detector in one room was removed! I have pictures of them all! Let me know how to sent them to you!
I'm glad you enjoyed the home in spite of some of those issues! I wish we had heard about the sand etc. as soon as you discovered it. We would have been happy to have sent the cleaners back. They're human too and they miss things sometimes. Thanks for staying with us.
