Nice Apartment but with safety issues
This is our 4th vacation using VRBO. This was my first time booking a place that had minimal reviews but the resort & similar rentals in the resort had good reviews. First impression the property was clean and well kept. Lots of free parking spaces. On arrival our access instructions had still not been sent to us/uploaded to VRBO and we had to endure the long distance fees to call Yvonne to obtain it. Once we got into the Condo it was clean and quite nice. The condo has a heavy odor from mothballs, and you can smell this even before entering the condo. Bed was comfy, it is right at the front door and we had a gentleman coming by the corridor and up the stairs by our room everyday between 8am and 10am with a leaf blower, that was disturbing for when you wanted to sleep in, it was mentioned to the reception staff. Bathroom was nice, clean, lots of towels/handtowels/faceclothes. No soaps at all. Small blowdryer. We did use laundry, brought our own laundry pods and bounce sheets, it worked fine. The kitchen was poorly equipped compared to previous stays we've had. A set of plates/bowls/cups/mugs. The frying pans are awful, there are pots and one pan to use in the oven - no oven mitts. There is a kettle and coffee brewer - no coffee filters, so bring your own. We were not provided with a garbage bag on arrival, just used grocery bags. No dish soaps or any cleaners provided at all. There is a dishwasher but we did not use, again you would need to provide your own dishwashers tabs. Living room had cable tv, pull out couch but we had trouble pulling it out, may have been broken but wasn't a big deal for us. Patio was nice and A/C worked. Some concerns - the back door has no lock. It is above ground level but still accessible from beside and from below. The in room safe did not work. On our 5th night (friday) we returned to our room at 10pm and the keypad on our door was dead. We were not provided with a key in our room at this place so we had no way to enter our room and could not make contact with anyone, reception is also closed at this time. A total PANIC for being off resort. We ended up getting in a few hours later, we had security find us a ladder and the 2 men climbed onto the roof and got to our room and entered the back door, which was not locked because there is no lock. We were told by Yvonne a key would be held at the sales office for us but the sales office was closed sat/sun, so no help. The next day the batteries were changed on our lock
Thanks for your review Ms. Brault and for staying your FULL days of your vacation with us despite what you describe as safety issues.
To be very clear, this resort has never had any incidences nor complaints from any guests about issues such as described by Ms. Brault, who despite staying for her full vacation and utilizing all the resort's facilities and resources, demanded a refund for her vacation, which was denied. She was offered two free days on her next stay and she refused same.
Miss Brault did not give us a phone number with which to text or contact her (as she said her phone was not on roaming). She told us to contact her only by e-mail. We encourage all our guests to give us a working phone number so that we can contact them in case of any emergency. This is the first guest who did not do so. Instead she sent us an e-mail minutes to midnight when the key pad went dead which we understand does no occur frequently.
The problem was rectified by our repairman Gregory. Although the condo office has extra keys we now leave a set within the apartment.
To address the issue of oven mitts, dish soaps, cleaners and coffee filters, again no other guest has complained about this. To be clear, this is not an all-inclusive hotel, it is an apartment rented by the owners. However, we are more than happy to supply our guests with anything they need prior to their visit. We aim to please and ensure that our guests have a memorable and carefree vacation. Without the information we will not be able to supply your needs. Also there are tons of restaurants within walking distance.
We are glad Ms. Brault stayed ALL the days of her vacation and we thank her for all recommendations made by her which we are moving to remedy.
Again, we encourage our guests to have a working phone so they can at least receive texts from us! We aim to please and wish all our guests a wonderful stay in our home.
Very good location, lovely apartment, nice complex building!
We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was very nice, spacious, lovely terrace, clean. Easy to walk to the beach. Price/quality: top! Yvonne was super reachable for any question. Thank you Yvonne!
It was a pleasure hosting you. We are happy you enjoyed our apartment and the lovely jewel that is Turks and Caicos. Please come again!
Beautiful grounds, well kept, clean and safe.
The unit we rented was excellent. Perfect size and layout. It was clean and well equipped with much of the things we needed for the week. It had a beautiful, large and private terrace. We did not get to the pool this visit but the pool and deck were very clean and inviting. I will definitely rent here again on my future visits to Turks & Caicos.
Thanks for being such great guests. We look forward to hosting you again.
