Perfect for family gathering!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 18 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shangri La. There was plenty of of room for all. Having two kitchens and two living rooms also helped us spread out and enjoy our weekend of game playing and eating. This house is roomy and comfortable and only a short walk to a beautiful beach. We hope to come back again to make more amazing memories together.

Lots of issues

  • 2 of 5

My family and I stayed at this house for Spring Break March 11-14, 2017. We picked this house because it was large and we had a group of 18 people (adults and children). The house is in a good location. Only a short walk to the beach. The beach is beautiful! There are a lot of activities to do (most popular is renting bikes, if you have your own bikes I recommend you to bring them!) people rode their bikes to a little "downtown" area where they have lots of restaurants, food truck and shops. It is only 6 miles from the house. The house needs a lot of upgrades! If you are looking for a nice modern house, this is not the house you want. If you really don't care about the comfort and just want a place to sleep then this would be a good house IF they fix all the problems. On our first night, we had a leak from the upstairs master restroom. My daughter was taking a shower and suddenly I hear my nephew screaming from downstairs saying that there was a leak in one of the downstairs restrooms. When I went downstairs, there was a stream of water coming down from the vent and the ac vent... it wasn't just a leak, it was as if the water was coming down directly from the drain into the restroom downstairs. I did call the Manager, Ashley, and she explained that "this happens sometimes, it has not happened in a while" She was very polite and prompt and sent out someone to "fix it" the next day. Although she did explain to me that she had sent out plumbers in the past but nothing could be done about it and probably nothing was going to be done about it unless the owner replaced the whole restroom. Well the plumber did come out the next day and did not fix anything. The manager did text me to tell me that she was going to send someone else the next day because the plumber could not fix it. By that time, we really did not want to be bothered with it. We were there to relax and enjoy, not stress and worry about a leak. We just didn't use that restroom for the rest of our stay. Another thing was that one of the days that we were there it rained almost most of the day so we ended up staying in to watch movies on our firestick- but the internet connection was horrible, even after all the kids logged out of it, we could not watch the movie because it kept on losing the connection. One of the couches upstairs was broken so we could not pull it out to covert it into a bed. There are lots of bored games in the house.

Owner's Response: Well where do I start with this one...I'm not sure what would have indicated to this guest that this home is "modern". The pictures nor the description describes a "modern" home. I would highly disagree that it is not "comfortable" I think it is very comfortable particularly for families. In regards to the plumbing issue, let me first say that it was taken care of the first day after this guest left & we have not have an issue since. When she did first call, I thought she was referring to a much smaller leak we had had in the past & until she described to me the size of the leak, later in the conversation, I realized that this was not the same situation. I immediately contacted a plumber & they came that same day (after hours) & he could not find where the leak was coming from. So, they had to send a technician from another company out that had a tool to determine where the moisture was & where the leak was coming from the next morning. The guest did not want them to come that next morning. If you have ever been a home owner, you know these things happen. I feel that my response was VERY timely and it could have been repaired that following day if allowed. I respect that it was an inconvenience and they wanted to wait till after their stay for me to fix it but then to complain about it and accept a generous discount that I gave them was pretty tacky. I have not received any complaints about the internet service. I check it often when I am there & have received a full signal. Often it is spotted or out if there are storms, this is not under my control. Mediacom is the local service provider. They also did not notify me of this problem, so I was not able to contact Mediacom to even see if there was an area outage or if a technician could fix the problem over the phone.

Good location, but property needs some attention.

  • 3 of 5

The house was spacious, but needs some updating. The outside is not very inviting, dirty, needs painting...Possibly ok for the price, but sticks out like a sore thumb compared to neighboring properties. We did like the location and the beach was beautiful! The landscaping on the property doesn't look like it has had any upkeep in quite a while; unkept greenery and shrubs, grass not cut, ant beds, etc. made it impossible for kids to play outside. Needs to have some improvements.

Owner's Response: In response to the issues about the outside: the entire exterior of the property has been painted since this review. We do primarily have natural beach landscape, it is not a landscaped suburban yard. It is mowed every other week & we have taken care of the ant beds. Many of the neighboring homes are newer VERY large homes and many are still old beach cottages like ours, there is a mix which is common in the 30A area. I think it's a great deal to pay the reasonable rate for our property & have close to or the same proximity that the mega mansions have to the beach!

Beautiful and cozy Shangri-la

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 18 with 3 couples and 2 single aunts and 10 kids and the sleeping Accomedations worked out perfectly. The house had everything we needed to cook. Plenty of Towels and even a full cannot of games and puzzles. I would definitely recommend this house to friends and family. We can't wait to come back . The walk to the beach is beautiful and the walk over bridge is perfect for pictures. There are also plenty of stores near by as well as restaurants and places to get a drink. We Loved Shangri-la.

You get what you pay for

  • 2 of 5

The VRBO reviews for this place were highly favorable, it was near where we needed to be for my daughter's wedding, it accommodated our large party, and it was close to the beach. That was good, so we booked it. And the photos on the website looked good. But in reality, it was shabby, very shabby. Showers with duct tape around pipes to hinder leaks (but not stop them). Stopped up drains. Several electric outlets that didn't work. Interior and exterior that had not been updated for years and years. Tired furniture. I would rather spend more and get a better house.

Owner's Response: I really appreciate the feedback from this renter, however the photos are very representative of the property. I have taken new ones as of 2/1/2016 to show as much of the property as possible. They are taken right from my camera & put onto vrbo, so you should know exactly what you are getting. This is not a brand new beach home with all new furnishings by any means, however it is a very comfortable & clean home in an incredible location that the majority of the renters thoroughly enjoy and many continue to return & rent each year. There were plumbing issues that we had to order parts for and those have all been long repaired by now (this renter made this review 7 months after booking). As far as stopped up drains, in every email I send to renters with check in instructions, it says to notify me with maintenance issues and I would have had someone out asap to fix them, I was not notified of any issues during these guests stay. I am sorry this guest had this experience, I think their expectations for their wedding week were set high and their budget did not match that expectation.

Great place for big family

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I had rented Val Lane and I was very pleased! The manager was very pleasant and helpful. This rental is great for big families. We had 7 adults and 11, yes 11 grandchildren and they all had a blast! They're ready to come back. Loved the easy and short access to the beach. They had just about everything needed for cooking. Beach was great, not crowded and was clean. We will be back!
