Was delighted to find time share so close to San Diego [38 miles south ] and the Temecula wine country [15 miles north]. Checked reviews and it sounded favorable. When I arrived I was told that the unit assigned [Gypsy 238] was one of those renovated. However when I got there with my guest I was very disappointed in the condition. As you can see from the attached pictures not only was the furniture in poor condition, the unit was dirty and there were immediate serious maintainence issues. The kitchen sink would not drain because the garbage disposal was clogged. The tub in the master suite would not drain and I had to take a shower standing in four inches of water. It turned out that when it was fixed it had been totally clogged with hair! [disgusting]. Clearly neither of these drains had been attended to by cleaning team when the last renter's left or both of these issues would have been caught. The rugs in the living room and master bedroom were so filthy I would not walk around barefoot. They were to be cleaned during the day [on Tuesday] while we were out. However the service man showed up at 7:30PM on Tuesday to shampoo the rugs! Didn't happen that night or ever during or stay. The plantation blinds in the living room need to be adjusted as one set would not even stay in place shut [had to force them in place to stay], the couch is in need of replacement as is the damaged ottoman. Mattress of poor quality. Very sad condition. On the flip side the resort has nice amenities and the location is a good location for touring southern CA. Had little interaction with staff and what I did was ineffective. Went to spa and could not even get in. No sign indicating hours only telling me to sit outside and someone would come - but lights were out. It did not seem very professional. Looked like someone only came if there was an appointment. Very confusing.
