"I was really on the fence with this... I'd give it more of a solid 3 1/2 stars rather than 3 or 4. The condo itself was nice enough, definitely as far as furnishings one of the better one. It was smaller than the pictures portrayed but definitely good enough for 3 of us.
My complaint really lies in the cleaning of the condo. We walked in at 3:30 (check in said any time after 3pm) and the gentleman who was cleaning was still there. So we put our stuff down and decided to head to the store to pick up groceries. We knew he was rushing because we were there for a minute or 2 checking it out and then as we got into the car, we saw him running out. We went back after shopping and checked the place out and I was pretty grossed out to be honest.
The shower curtain had a 6 inch "band" of mold that went along the entire bottom, it was just nasty. The garbage can had food stuck to it, underneath the top, on the top, everywhere. The couch had a few bigger stains as well as actual dried on caked on food on it. So I emailed Steve, the owner, and he even though he was on vacation himself, he was more than apologetic and told me that he would send someone back. I told him no, because at that point, I'd rather just clean it myself. So I did.
Fast forward 2 days later - we had found so many more unclean and "broken" items - the toilet - we opened the lid and it was caked on with black lines and "gunk". The sink didn't drain, the dryer didn't dry, I could go on, but you get the point, lots of little things I hadn't seen before I emailed him the 1st time. So I just cleaned it and fixed it myself - because that's what I like to do on vacation - clean and use drano (insert sarcasm here).
Monday we went out for the day, came back and found the shower curtain removed. So, basically someone came anyhow even though I had requested them not to. That didn't sit well with me but hey, I dealt. They didn't leave a shower curtain though, just the liner. Wednesday we came back from a day out and then voila...a shower curtain. So that is twice that someone came in and we didn't know about it. So basically, they were just coming and going when they wanted and that bothered me not knowing.
To make a long story short, I felt uncomfortable and I never really got past the lack of cleanliness that I saw and had to clean myself. I just never really felt great being there. Steve was great and the condo comfortable, but I wouldn't stay again."
