Amazing time! Needs a bit of Maintenance, but well worth the stay! Didn’t have to get in car at all, and kids had endless activities.
Nice Location! Issues with Property Manager
Loved the location and area, but I was annoyed with the property manager. For starters, I never received any information from the property owner. From the time I booked it, I left messages on VRBO and she never responded to any of them. I did call her about a month out. She told me she would call me the next day, then she never did. I texted her about a week before our trip to get the key box code. She did send it, but it was always me initiating it, never her. When we got to the property, there were no check in instructions. We had no idea what the WiFi was or even what was required of us. Had to text property owner to get wiFi password. Our first night in I get a call from the property owner asking if I would mind if some potential buyers came over to look at the property. She did apologize, but asked if it would be ok. I told her “no”, but they could by the next day. I’m new to VRBO, but I’m pretty sure it’s not customary to have showings of your property while guests have paid you to rent it for the week. She never offered to give us some of our money back, in fact all she told my wife was “we’ll owe you a drink”. Wow thanks!!! Still waiting on that drink!!!! The house itself was big and parts of it were really nice, but it needed a lot of fixing up. Broken screen doors, broken handles, broken locks on the gate. Outlets not working. On our last day, I confirmed with the property owner that we would check out by 12:00 PM. Much to my surprise we had people show up at 8:30 in the morning. They were potential buyers of the property who were there with their contractor to take measurements and do a brief inspection. I explained to them that we were on vacation and had rented it, they told me the property owner told them they could come by Saturday morning and no one would be home. This would have been a nice heads up from the property owner. Horrible communication issue with the owner. I doubt this review will matter much. I’m sure this property will be sold soon. If you have booked this property in the future, I would reach out to the owner and make sure it is still available. I can’t say enough about how awesome the area is. I love Mission Beach and I loved being in walking distance with the bay and beach. However, I will pass on renting from this owner again!!!!!
Great location, contemporary home!
Loved this modern and spacious home. It has two living rooms and a big patio for outdoor entertaining. Best part is it is so close to both the bay and the beach. Convenient parking. We walked to Thanksgiving dinner at the Bahia resort and strolled to the delicious and funky neighborhood taco shop. No need to get back in your car. Very modern kitchen and open floor plan. Easy check in and out even after hours. The three bedrooms easily accommodated our group of 5 adults. One of the bedrooms had not been remodeled yet but was still OK. Towels and linens show some wear and need updating but can't beat the cool floating staircase. Would stay here again.
Beautiful home in a perfect location
Our stay couldn't have been better. The host was very easy to coordinate with and super responsive for our check in. The place was better than the pictures show. We just loved it and will definitely come back.
Good for pet owner
I have used VRBO several times with very good results, but not so this time.Some of our issues were: No hand soap in any of the bathrooms or kitchen sink, half a roll of toilet paper with no back up, bbq grill did not work well and ran out of propane halfway through cooking and had no back up tank. House maintenance was not kept up, hole in wall in bathroom, towel racks barely hanging on, not able to use, flooring chipping up, rain came through Arcadia doors. The house was advertised as having a 2 car garage but could only fit in 1 car becaus they used other side for big storage. I also left my jewelry bag there (totally my fault) but was extremely difficult getting it back and of course 2 rings were missing, one my wedding ring and the other my mother's wedding ring. These items can never be replaced and am left with very little recourse. The only good thing I can say is that it is a good location.
This is really disappointing to hear. Rita send us several messages along the way how lovely and beautiful everything is.
More importantly, she claimed that she forgot her jewelry bag with two wedding rings. We spent a lot of time going through the house and searching for it. We found the bag, which was just an open bag, that could not be zipped or closed in any way, needless to say, it was not meant for jewelry or anything else that is of worth. Anyways, I sent it back to her. There was no thank you.
She accused my cleaning lady of taking them and threatened to file a police report. I find it classless that she accused someone to take her jewelry that she lost. Someone she doesn't know, that is very hard-working and she has no ground to assume that she took it.
It sounds as if this review was written out of frustration that she may have lost her own jewelry. While I can understand that this is very frustrating, it is very disappointing that she choosing to retaliate against innocent people.
Hosting is something we take seriously and we want to ensure that our guests enjoy their stay. However, as a landlord I would not want to host Rita again, it is a unwarranted liability for any landlord.
