House was nice but difficulty with check in
House was nice but difficulty with check in
The home was nicely furnished and had great views. However, the property manager, Sand 'N Seas Properties, doesn't allow check ins after 5pm (It wasn't noted on VRBO that check-in was before 5pm). We flew into Houston and were delayed in rush hour traffic. The property manager called us around 4pm and stated that if we didn't arrive by 5:30pm that we wouldn't be able to check in until 9am the next day. We had already prepaid for 3 nights and it was disconcerting and very stressful to think that we might not have a place to stay with 3 small children. We felt that the property manager would have been more accomodating with a late check-in. The property manager called us multiple times to see when we would arrive. Luckily and thankfully, she stayed until 6:15pm but we weren't sure she was going to wait to check us in until we actually arrived. We own beach rental property and would lose many clients if we only allowed check-ins before 5pm. We have stayed at many places that accomodate late check-ins by using lock boxes and electronic door locks. This property would improve its occupancy rate by offering late check ins like their competition. Also, the cleaning service isn't allowed to make bunk beds secondary to liability issues. There was a message on the bunk beds that said: "This bed is not made because our insurance carrier prohibits staff from making bunk and trundle beds. We apologize for the inconvenience." After paying for full-service, we expected all the beds to be made. I would recommend replacing the bunk beds with regular beds or finding a cleaner that can make bunk beds. Here are some tips that would have improved our stay. The cleaner needs to dust the TV cabinet regularly. No hair dryers were in the unit and it is nice to have a hair dryer in each bathroom. It would also be helpful to leave paper towels in the kitchen so that tenants don't have to run out to the grocery store on arrival. Consider adding bathroom towel racks since there are minimal places to hang towels especially in the front upstairs bathroom. Finally, this property is in a foreclosed resort and the pool and restaurant are currently closed. We discovered this after booking the property and were given a discount. These issues should be easily addressed making this a great place to stay.
