Nice house, nice pool
This is a nice home with a very nice pool. It is in a pretty good area with easy access to highways. The sofa in the family room is not all that comfortable but everything else was OK. We had a couple of issues while we were at the property and they were addressed well. The house was in pretty good shape and has most things you would need there which was nice. At some VRBOs, you have to go out and buy all sorts of things (spices, salt/pepper, toilet paper, etc.) and it was there. Also lots of towels and things to take to the beach. We were there for two weeks and enjoyed our stay.
We paid everything months in advance and a few days before our vacation the owner emailed us and stated we needed to bring cash for a cleaning fee that was not listed on their original pricing. As soon as we got to the rental property there was a note on the table to call so the owner can stop by and collect the money. The owner then texted me a day before leaving and stated we needed to make sure all the trash was taken out and all the dishes were clean and put away. In addition to the hidden fee, there was only 1 roll of toilet paper, a half of a roll of paper towels, a drop of dish soap and 1 garage bag. We had to go and buy everything As soon as we got to the rental property. Very disappointed in this rental.
Jesscia H. called HomeAway when got all documents for her stay because she hasn´t seen the fee cleaning while booking her booking. I called her, explained everything again and I even offered a cost free cancellation to make her happy. She emailed me after our phonecall "I truly apologize that VRBO called you. I called them just for clarification because I was just confused when the fee wasn’t listed upfront. Completely Makes sense after your explanation and we have no problem paying the fee."
Obviously that was wrong. I called her again after this rating because I didn´t understood it. She said everything was good but she was annoyed about the toilet paper. Yes, in the toilet was 1 roll of paper. And a complete pack with 20 more rolls in the storage room - but she didn´t look in the storage room. By the way: Our housekeeper wrote the note and he´s collecting the money for the final cleaning. Not me. I explained that 3 times to her. What should I say. This rating is completly pointless.
Villa is as advertised - manager goes above and beyond
Well furnished. Large and comfortable property.
Had an adventure - the ac stopped working while we were away from the house (a surprise given the home is well maintained) and they had just had it serviced recently. These things happen which is not remarkable. What was remarkable was that Mike, the property manager, even though he was on vacation made sure that a service person responded as soon as possible. We discovered outage at 6:30pm and due to high volume of calls (unseasonably hot and ac units were dying by the truck load) the service guy got there at 9:30pm. They needed a new fan which they did not have readily available. So we were w/o ac for the night. Discussed going to motel with Mike and he assures us if we did, we would get part of our booking fee refunded. We decided to tough it out and stay in the house +it was late and we were tired).
Mike made sure ac was fixed by 1pm next day, which was perfect as we had meetings from 9am to 6pm.
Great communication and follow through by Mike.
Owners sent us email letting us know they would discount our next stay due to the inconvenience.
Long and short - any property can have a breakdown in a key system at any time. What is critical is how the owner and manager work to resolve the issues and take care of the customer. Mike the manager and Oliver the owner did an exceptional job in this case.
Thanks very much!
