not an ethical owner

  • 1 of 5

The property is generally a nice place. We have stayed a several different places in the Coastal Cottages collection over the past 10 years. .

Upon arrival at this one, we notified the Property Manager of rotted parts of the WOODEN spiral staircase leading to the crow's nest.

Nothing was done about it during our stay.

Within a few days after our departure, the Owner filed a claim on our Travel Insurance that blames us for her years of neglect in maintaining the rotting staircase. Obviously an attempt to have the Insurance subsidize the replacement of the staircase. Additionally, that we somehow caused the kitchen sink to separate from the counter top???

Owner's Response: In over two years of renting our home, we have never had any damage or insurance claim. The steps were inspected before this rental and deemed safe. Of course, beach homes are subject to weather damage over time. However, we had no reason to believe there was an immediate concern. I could post pictures, but I believe it is inappropriate to litigate a private matter on line or call one's ethics into question.
