Reviewer Comments:

Our family of 15 loved the location and home "Charisma by the Sea". Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for Avocet Properties'service. From day 1, it was lacking. My name, street address, zip code and email address were all entered incorrectly by the agent taking the reservation. I called since I had not received anything and requested it be corrected but again I never received anything so I had to call again and request it be updated/corrected again as they still had the incorrect information on file. As I said the home was amazing - location great and decorated beautifully. Unfortunately, Avocet Properties does not appear to be taking care of such a gem of a home. Upon arriving, hot tub had lid off, error message and full of sand. I sent a picture plus called twice and asked that it be cleaned for our use. They indicated they were aware of the issue each time I called but no one ever came. A smoke detector began beeping on day 2. With kids and dogs in the house and it too high for us to reach, I called and asked for maintenance to come change the battery. I was told someone would be out to do so. No one ever showed, so we managed to get on each other's shoulders to get the batteries out of the unit to stop the beeping. The beer frig did not work but since there were 2 full size frig, it was not an issue for us. The patio door came off the track multiple times and you had to be a weightlifter to get it opened or closed due to this. The elevator would have been handy for our elderly guests but the doors were so hard to get open and shut, we could not use it. I called and nicely relayed this information to the phone service on the Saturday morning we left at 8:30 since the Avocet office did not open until 9:00. The phone service indicated someone from Avocet would call me back within 24 hours to discuss things with me and well, it's been 9 days and I've still not heard from anyone.

Reviewer Comments:

We paid a high price for this property. Loved the location and slept the people we wanted to sleep. Loved the personal bathrooms in each bedroom. The property had great AC and kitchen utensils and dishes. Loved the ground floor and shower. However, only 1 slow ice maker and the drink cooler did not work. Sliding door needs to be replaced. Sand in hot tub. No chlorine for hot tub, no room or dustpan in the house, parking too small for that big of a house, could not get trash cans to Road for cars parked. Also all of the furniture and floors were sandy when we got there and sticky. Property management staff was not familiar with the property. Need better descriptions in their paperwork, floor plan, notes about steps going to master bedroom and steps down to the beach.

Reviewer Comments:

The photos online do not do this home justice! It was absolutely gorgeous and spacious enough for all 11 guests to enjoy their stay. The home is on a quiet patch of beachfront but still only a 5 minute drive from downtown. Every night we slept with the windows open to hear the crashing waves.

Reviewer Comments:

Avocet was a dream to go through. They were always friendly and willing to help with any request. Whenever we had an issue one call and it was fixed. The property was perfect, it's a little far from center street but that means less people in front of the house. All of our guests were amazed and we're already planning our rental for next year.

What a perfect name for this elegant manor on the beach. "Charisma by the Sea" was the perfect place for us for the week. We had our wedding here and nothing could have gone better. It ended up being the perfect venue for our event, and the week stay before and after the event couldn't have been more comfortable. Hopefully will get to stay here again soon!

Reviewer Comments:

The house was VERY dirty. The beds (outside of the master bedroom) were in poor condition which meant no one was sleeping great. These two factors alone are deal breakers. The kitchen was terribly stocked when it came to many of the basics (ie...knives, wine glasses, ect.... The back door from a downstairs bedroom would not lock. There was no umbrella or beach chairs that didn't leave rust on your clothes. There is no question we will not be spending $8400 for Charisma by the Sea again.
