...because if the unit is not ready to rent - DON'T RENT IT!!!!
We have stayed in this unit several times previously and have always enjoyed it, very pleasant and perfectly suited for a mature couple.
I understand there was hurricane damage - 14 months ago! BUT, if the glass is falling out of the door to the balcony, do something, don't just tell the renter that "the parts are on order"!!! I suggested that the maintenance people please seal the glass to the door frame with duct tape, ugly as it is, to stop the wind whistling noise and erratic climatic control. Also, the entry door had no weather stripping - I used my own masking tape to seal the cold out. This is NUTS!!
And finally, from the owner's locked closet - in the night - came a static sound. Ultimately it was a portable radio which had shorted out and "turned itself on". And the front desk said, too bad, we don't have a key. I picked the lock and removed the batteries.
The point here is, as I said, if it is NOT READY, DON'T RENT IT.
Still love the place, but very disappointed in the last visit.
