Big house, bigger issues

  • 2 of 5

The house is spacious and has multiple beds for large groups. It is very outdated but that wasn't a big deal to us. However- we had issues with wifi-couldn't access it during the week. This is an issue when people need to work. The a/c went out downstairs. We found multiple roaches. We understand that all of these things happen. Our issue is that we called and emailed multiple times starting the day after we arrived. No one would return our calls or emails. We heard back on Friday evening-the day before we left. Not acceptable! My husband had to repair the a/c-it was easy and not a big deal but that isn't the point. Wifi was an issue the entire week. When we finally heard from them they asked what we felt was appropriate for reimbursement. We asked for the 2 days without a/c refunded-2 nights. They refused, giving us 10% back which was half of one nights stay. Considering we were also without wifi the entire week, my husband repaired the a/c, and the lack of communication, we felt this wasn't appropriate. They refused any further refunds.

*Note-when I booked this house for our families, I noted that 2 people would be working and would need dependable wifi. We were told that wouldn't be an issue.

This is the first time of booking many houses/condos etc with VRBO over the years that we have had such an issue. It certainly makes think about how we will book next time.

Our family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Wahoo was perfect for my family. We had plenty of room, lots of kitchen space and everyone loved the pool. We had 9 people there most of the week and no problems. The only drawback is that you cannot see the ocean, but it such a short walk getting there is easy.

We love Wahoo

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year to stay at Wahoo. We love it so much we go back every year! Gulf Trace is a quiet neighborhood.You may even see a deer when you drive into the neighborhood. The beach is low key with plenty of spots to put up your umbrellas or tents and stay the day while the kids swim in the lake or ocean. Wahoo has everything you need when you return from your day at the beach~a porch to play cards, a kitchen to shuck oysters and prep shrimp, a pool for the kids to play in, or plenty of bathrooms and hot water to rinse off for your family bike ride to Seaside and beyond. The leaving instructions are some of the easiest I've ever seen; just pack your things and go after starting the dishwasher. We love wahoo!
