Living room furniture was dingy, shower head had no pressure . Had only one shower. Kitchen needs more useful pots and pans (like a skillet). Kitchen chairs' legs were all very loose , to the point one about collapsed. my husband had to get his tools out and tighten them.

Owner's Response: My property manager contacted me about this review as soon as it was received. Very concerned and with another guest arriving that day I hurried over to correct the deficiencies noted in the review. This is what I found. 1. Living room furniture: The sofa looked fine. The two large side chairs are very high end and covered in an expensive fabric. The fabric does have a muted look but that is the way the fabric is. I will clean the chairs after our next guest leaves as the arms do show some wear. As far as the furniture being dingy, the interior design is a soothing neutral color scheme not bright colors. The photographs advertised accurately depict the colors. 2. Shower head: The pressure is very good. I called the previous guests and they said the pressure was fine. 3. One shower: The house is accurately described and advertised as having one shower and one large claw foot bathtub. This fall we will be renovating one bathroom, removing the claw foot tub and installing a shower. Then we will have 2 showers and will advertise it as such. 4. Pots, pans and skillets: I checked the cabinet next to the range and found a selection of nice pots and pans with lids including a large skillet. In another cabinet I found a good size frying pan and a griddle along with another large pot, casserole pan, cookie sheets, baking pan, etc. Even so I left two more skillets for a total of 4. I called the previous guests and they said there were plenty of pots, plans and skillets. 5. Kitchen chairs: The legs on the chairs were fine when I checked them. The reviewer said her husband tightened them so I will have to take her word for it. We have never had any complaints from any other guests about the chairs. I called the last guests to stay there prior to this reviewer. They said one leg on one chair was a bit loose. They tightened it and didn’t report it. They didn’t notice any issues with any of the other issues noted by this reviewer and that the photos accurately depicted the home. Sandy Beach Properties is a wonderful property manager and always happily takes care of any guest issues immediately. They go above and beyond to make sure that everything in the house is in good working order and clean. Had this reviewer called, we would have gladly done whatever we could have to take care of. We take pride in customer service and in having happy and satisfied guests. I wish this reviewer would have given us the opportunity try to take of things.
