Property was as pictured, no surprises, until we departed
The property is as described and the owners very easy to rent from and very good at all booking communications. As for the owners cleaning crew, both prior and post our stay, that team has a lot to be desired. Picture this, ... upon arrival we found a 6 inch ball of human hair on the coffee table and Q-Tips and dental floss under the guest room bed. Both bathrooms were only moderately clean, towels and dishes where in the dryer and dishwasher. So upon departure we left clean towels in the dryer and clean dishes in the dishwasher. After our departure, the cleaning crew complained that we left the house dirty and stained the driveway with oil (parked in the garage btw.). All of these claims where false, as we swept cleaned the entire home and did most of the laundry for the crew. The owner, per the crew complaints, held a portion of my damage deposit for extra cleaning and drip spots on the driveway. Lucky, we had taken pictures of the property upon arrival and could support my claim that the damages to the drive where already there and that the cleaning crew was also inept. With this proof, we lobbied that my deposit funds should be return immediately. I recommend you cover your bases with before and after pictures. So, if you want to rent this home, just beware of the high damage fee, as it maybe kept on trumped up cleaning or damage charges. Lastly, to his credit, the owner did refund the entire damage fee. But only after VRBO managed our dispute.
In all the years renting this house only have had 1 security deposit refund issue which was quickly and satisfactorily resolved with guest which they agreed with. Having been in the rental business for over 30 yrs have seen and heard just about everything, so nothing surprises me.
Damage refunds typically are more effort than they are worth. Security deposits rarely fully compensate when time & effort required to resolve are factored in. Since deposits are not large sums of money it is meant more as insurance to effect behavior, not as a profit center.
It clearly states in rental agreement if any issues including cleanness upon arrival to contact me immediately, which I was not. Now if there was a 6" ball of hair - get a tape measure out and see how big 6" is, and on top of coffee table? As for floss and Q tip under bed, not sure why anyone would be flossing/brushing their teeth under the bed and not the bathroom. Should have called immediately, which they did not. Also did have communication with guest after arrival and no mention was made.
Also clearly stated in agreement & is posted on wall above washer/dryer that after beach visit to air dry beach towels on rack & shake sand out (hopefully outside) then wash/dry, so as not to clog pumps on machines. Lg amount of sand was found in dryer vent clean out. So have to conclude that the washer pump has some as well which will affect its life cycle.
With regards to parking in garage. Again clearly stated that rental time period is beginning of hurricane season all furniture from lanai is in garage so if storm blows up they don’t become projectiles to hurt someone or damage property. They are welcome to move (it’s all very light) to lanai just ask that it be moved back into garage when finished. When I arrived at property the furniture was as I left it, as no room in garage for car with furniture there.
With regards to our cleaning lady, we have used & known her for some time and respect her opinion. With only 1 issue (satisfactorily resolved) with this house shows objectiveness. Also people's definition of clean - can and does vary.
Also only requested a portion be withheld to cover additional cleaning costs. Again these monies as mentioned do not fully compensate for time, effort and resources to address these situations.
Considering what I have expended on this for the partial deposit decided not worth any more resources spent for outcome. Respectfully Owner.
House was just as advertised,even better. Lots of room,clean no surprises. Golf courses all within 10 minute drive, good condition ,enjoyable to play . Communication with Rodney(owner) prior to trip was excellent and follow up upon leaving was good. Would consider staying there again
