  • Amazing family trip


    Amazing vacation. House was awesome. Fully stocked with all amenities. Great location. Pool was warm and beautiful. Owners communicated quickly regarding AC issue. Owners were Very considerate. They dropped off 2 bottles of wine to make up for any AC inconvenience. Would definitely stay again!!!

  • Enjoyable stay


    Property was very nice. A few issues. The toaster was broken and the water filter in the refrigerator was outdated.

    After contacting our property contact person the issues were taken care of within 24 hr. Very good service. The pool was very nice also!

  • Great place, close to everything


    The place was wonderful. I am glad that it was close to beaches, bars and restaurants. The house was very clean also.

  • House was dirty and not worth what we paid.


    I rarely give negative reviews but I feel it is necessary here. We were disappointed with the overall condition and cleanliness of the unit for what we paid. Furniture is uncomfortable, house was NOT clean. Open first aid kit with wrappers in kitchen cabinet, shower had mold, used napkins and left over food under kitchen trash can, stains on comforter, cigarette wrappers in dining area, cushions on outdoor furniture do not fit furniture and master BR is hot compared to the rest of the house. On a positive note, Kitchen was updated and well stocked and pool was nice. Most likely will not rent again for the $$.

    Manager's Response:

    Jennifer, we take guest feedback seriously and passed your comments on to the homeowner who would like to share the following:
    "We value guest feedback and we can honestly say that we were surprised to read your review.
    -We pride ourselves on cleanliness and of the many glowing reviews we've received, the cleanliness of the home is always the first thing they comment on. We wished we had been notified of your concerns, but we only heard from you once about the wrapper you found on the top of one of the cabinets. Our cleaners do an amazing job in the limited time they have but if a wrapper was placed out of sight, it's certainly possible they missed it. We apologize for the oversight.
    -Regarding the furniture, this is also the first time we've had a guest comment on the comfort of the furniture and not found it to their liking. We regret if it did not meet your preferences.
    We truly go above and beyond for our guests and are confident that future guests will have excellent stays!"

  • Amazing
