the property was charming, but in very bad condition.

  • 1 of 5

1. It was mold in the bottom part of the house. It is not suitable for a person with allergies.

2. The construction of the building was in very bad condition.

3. The bathtube was dirty. I think it was impossble to clean it.

4. The mosaic in the pool was falling apart and also fell in to the pool. It was a risk for the children to hurt themselves

5. Part of the building was falling of when it blew a little

6. The sunchairs were in bad condition. Not all was whole

7. One of the blenders did not work

8. There were not enough with wineglasses in the house.

9. The kitchen was not so well equipt as you can expect.

10. It was impossible to lock the buildning when we went away.

The doors to the patio had rusted so you could not lock them.

We think that the owner wait for the next hurricane to come.....

I will not recommend this property to any family with children and/or allergies.

We have photos that show the propertys condition.

This is the property in worst condition that I have rent in the States and Europe.

I thought that it was some control of the properties that was for rent on VRBO. But now I know better.

Owner's Response: Wow, Bo, it is incredible that the property you describe got #2 five star reviews just prior to your stay. I am not sure that it can be charming, and the dump you describe. No, The Ocean Vista is not brand new, but it is clean and well equipped, and does have the "old keys' charm. And the pool chairs are new, and all in good condition except for the 2 that were broken during your stay, along with the ruined sheets, impossible to get cleaned, but no worries, we were not nasty or accusing, we just replaced the damaged things on the insurance that is included on each weeks rental. If you need something while you are here, but never contact me, then I cannot help you, and it seems a little suspect that you did not list all of these complaints until after I let you know I was replacing the things that you damaged at this home. Ah, well, you can't please everyone! Cheers!

We had a great trip!

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice, the bathrooms and decking could use some updating but it was perfect for us. Sherry is definitely a great rental manager and was always on top of things when we needed her. Thanks for making our trip to the keys great!
