My husband and I wanted privacy for our honeymoon so we rented what we thought was an intimate chalet up north. We only had five days and wanted to spend them in peace and isolation with each other...The chalet (#14) had all the amenities, nice hot tub, indoor jacuzzi, big screen tv, dvd, stereo, kitchen etc. It was beautiful and clean on the inside but what we didn't count on was the intrusiveness of the staff.
EVERY single day we were there the staff were on or in the property we rented for one reason or another. The first day they cut the grass...or most of it. Then again on day two, then they came with the weed whacker. Still didn't get all of the lawn. There was a storage "cave" in the basement and we heard people coming and going at all hours of the day and once in the dead of the night while we were sleeping. Kinda creepy. Once to install a window screen....They came on the LAST day we were there to install two citronella torches at the hot tub, one was filthy with resin, and broken to boot, and they didn't bother to fill them up. The balcony was never cleaned and I got all kinds of spider bites.
When we went to the office to tell the manager that we were on our honeymoon and really just wanted to be left in peace, and didn't want anymore unannounced and surprise visits... the response we got was purely argumentative and we were surprised at the attitude, when all we were asking was to be left alone!
We were also surprised by the $99 a night sign that was posted when we paid twice that via internet reservation....and the complete filth that was the outdoor pool...oh and no phone.
So all in all if you are not on a honeymoon or a romantic getaway and don't mind maintenance men wandering around at random when ur trying to take a dip in the hot- tub or get some sun in that new bikini.....go for it.
