Good Value for BHI
The house was well stocked and it was great to have enough beach towels so we didn't have to bring our own. Kitchen had spices and some condiments which was helpful when we cooked. Only thing I would change was house was not as clean as I would have hoped. Owners might want to keep track of housekeepers a bit better. Showers and trim around stalls were thick with grime. Under beds and under sofa cushions were COVERED in sand and hair, trash, etc. we did not notice this until we had to search for a lost item that had rolled underneath. Yikes! Housekeepers Must be rushing through during turnover days and this house has not had a deep clean in a LONG time. Back porch was especially unkempt w weak/ rusty fan, rugs had strong moldy odor and lights on front stairs were not working. This was a big safety issue after dark.
I appreciate your feedback. This is the first time we have had any comments or calls regarding the cleanliness of our home, hence I have immediately brought it to the staff's attention. Since we employ a full time management, cleaning, and maintenance staff on the island, they can be contacted anytime during your stay to address any issue you may have. They will be happy to handle any and all issues ASAP. We take pride in our home and want each guest to have a great experience. There are signs throughout the home with the number to call at anytime to address any and all of your needs .... from light bulbs to cleaning issues. Just let them know. In fact the fan has been replaced as well as the rug in question which was in the storage area but must have been moved by a renter. This happens from time to time, even though we ask people to please leave things, furniture, etc. in the same place. I have asthma myself so the home is checked regularly for any signs of any type of smell, etc.
Perfect central location!
This house was just what we wanted for its central location on the island -- convenient to both clubs, market, etc! Everything was as promised, and the owners were a delight to work with. We will definitely keep this in mind for future stays!
