Unbelievable bad. Please refund half my money.

  • 1 of 5

(Excuse choppy style--trying to fit it in the word count.)

Great location, was thoughtfully decorated and supplied with books and movies for renters which might be the last time the owners thought about it. Shredded Welcome mat is first clue to age/care of condo. Who expects to need to clean before using a rental? We'd include pictures if allowed.

Owner referred us to property mgmt guy, Fred, whose response to “missing 7 vertical slats in master bedroom, thick dust around and lots of mildew in the shower” was “Listen, it’s a great place. Don’t worry, just enjoy the weekend.” Umm…ok? He said he’d ordered new slats, but they hadn’t arrived, and he’d be by the next day. Which next day?


It needs a regular & deep clean, especially shower and bathtub (including grout), front door and refrigerator door handles, sliding glass doors. Dust—or get leashes for the dust bunnies. Shampoo 1st floor carpet and sofas. How do you plop down a new bar of soap, but not see the mildew in the shower? Coffee spills in utensil tray: ick!

You’re asked to run dishwasher before leaving, but not left with any detergent, hence caked on bits of food on spoons. Is it too much expense to leave 3-4 dishwasher tabs, garbage bags & a small (refillable) container of dishsoap?

Despite baby equipment there, stair rail spacing wide enough for child under 3 to fall through (3 story unit). Re: safety: Does uncovered smoke alarm work?

Master bedroom sheets covered in rust and blood stains; bath towels worn, some holey.

Teenage son’s review: It was advertised as a get-away, but was more like staying in your distant cousin’s dirty, grimy place. (Note: teenage boy calling it dirty…)

One appeal to location is semi-private boardwalk w/semi-private bathroom at the beach. Bathroom code they gave doesn’t work.

Since parking passes are required (and the unit generously provides 3), although it probably isn’t their car, why not have the city haul away the car parked in front of this unit with a registration that expired a year ago, mildew on the steering wheel and parking brake, visible insurance form expired 4 years ago.

Nice stuff:

Short, lovely walk to great beach.

Several keys & parking passes.

Hose thoughtfully placed near front door for sand clean up.

Kitchen well-stocked (who needs 2 large bundt pans though?)

Thoughtfully stocked w/books, movies, magazines, information about local stuff.

Amenities we didn't use (grill, x-box type, beach wagon?)

Owner's Response: Very disappointed that this guest has taken to writing a negative review about their stay in an effort to hurt our our chances in booking guests in the future. I did receive 2 calls from this guest on the first night and referred them to our property manager as we live out of state and are not able to handle issues like this remotely. Upon review we did have some misssing slats in the vertical blinds and I have expressed my anger with our current management company over this along with the need to review cleaning concerns with the cleaning company that he uses. I made it clear if these issues are not resolved we would be changing services. These actions will address the renter’s concerns. I would also point out that we are not the Ritz Carlton or Marriott and are very upfront about that. What we are is a very affordable family vacation location that has NEVER had a review like this before. This guest clearly wanted to damage our future business by pointing out meaningless items like a dirty car in the parking lot with expired tags. Seriously? We have never had guest complain about the spacing in the railing on the stairs. Once again, trying to damage our future business. I wish this guest luck in future stays elsewhere as they are clearly high maintenance and expect 4 star hotel service from a low priced vacation villa. You will not be welcomed back at our villa and we will be passing your info along to our network of renters as well as a clear warning of the type of guest you guys are.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We have been coming to HHI for 20 years and have stayed at many different places at South Beach. This condo like many need some updating but for the price you can't beat it. Everything was great except the only change would be new towels. The towels had stains and holes on them. We almost went out and bought a set to use they were so bad. But I also realize that this is more of a management issue than an owners because many times the owner is never aware of the smaller things. It was our first unit that had a wagon and that was a huge plus. Overall I would come back to the same unit because the price and location are perfect.

Reasonably Priced, Spacious 3 Bedroom Condo near the Beach

  • 4 of 5

Should have sent this once I returned home, but better late than never. I rented this unit for the entire month of March 2010.

Location: Across the street and a quick stroll along a path to the famous HHI beach. Directions and photo's were very accurate.

Accomodations: Owner was very helpful right from the start. Also past along a phone number of the care takers if ever required. Package c/w keys were ready for pick up when we arrived. Finding the place was simple, especially since I have been to HHI previously. The 3 bedroom condo was exactly, maybe even better than I had hoped for. There is two pools, but not available for use in March, accept to sit around and sun bathe. Parking was plentiful and right outside the unit. The deck located out back has enough room for 4-6 people to sit on and a very nice gas barbeque. Out there in the courtyard is a pond with a fountain. The interior is very roomy for 4-6 people, possibly even more. Bedrooms are spacious and we enjoyed the upper bedroom layout.

The appliances are fairly new, especially the washer/dryer as we know they were brand new.

The kitchen is kind of small for the unit, but still had everything we required.

Opportunities for Improvement;

1. Need to get a new vacuum cleaner. First off there was not one when we arrived. the one that was delivered by the caretakers, was poor at best as it must have been 25 years old.

2. The entire place, accept for the bathrooms and kitchen were carpetted. Shag carpet and very hard to keep clean, hence the need for a vacuum. Actually the carpet needs to be replaced in the living/dining room.

3. The cleaning staff didn't do a great job with the outside (the deck, the balcony and sliding glass doors needing to be cleaned).

ALL in ALL, I still found it to be a very nice unit and the location was very good. You can ride your bike and walk to anywhere you need to go. Restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, bars/taverns were less than 1/2 mile away on Pope Ave near and at Coligny Circle. The beach was a short walk across the street and down the path/boardwalk. Favourite Restaurant is Flora's Italian Cafe - 841 William Hilton Pkwy. Within about a 1/2 mile, we found a public tennis court (4) (Woodhaven & Cordillo) which we used every day. If you love to golf (we sure do) there is no limit to the amount of courses in the area. Still, nothing is better than either a bike ride or stroll on the beach to get you feeling very relaxed.

Thanks again

My husband & I, youngest ...

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I, youngest daughter, son-in-law and 5 yr old grandson spent a week in this very homey property. It was close to the beach, there are 2 pools at the property, the villa itself was laid out very nicely and provided us with an extremely relaxing and fun vacation. We went to the pools, to the beach, had meals, played games, relaxed... all when we wanted. It was a super vacation for all of us and allowed us to mellow out before we had to go home and send my grandson to REAL school! Thank you for providing this comfortable home-away-from-home, w/o all the 'stuff' you have to do when you're home! We hope to be guests again!
