for me be at this beach made me feel like being in Europe, on the French Riviera, the department which I select to stay every year was Robert H department. Always well organized, clean, tastefully decorated and perfect value for money. I've certainly thought a lot before writing this summary recommendation because I have 3 years by going to this department as a secret place for inspiration and write my stories, is a place with harmony that inspires you and fills your soul of art, this wonderful place in the world is 100% love and harmony.
this place is where lives the inspiration !
First if you are considering staying on Hollywood Beach I recommend the location highly, but there are lots of options to consider other than this condo. The photos of the condo are very misleading. There is no photo of the bathroom. When I asked for a photo twice I was told there wasn't one available to show me. After we got there I found out why. The bathroom was disgusting. I had to go to the grocery store and buy Cleanser just to scour the tub. The tub fixtures did not work and they leaked. There was a hair top in the tub drain and it was still full of hair. The toilet seat was one of those old cushioned seats and it was so awful I petitioned the owner to replace it. We struck a deal that I would buy one and replace it myself which I did so that my Daughter and I had a clean place in the bathroom. I am 5'9" and when I sat on the toilet seat my knees would hit the bathroom vanity. The toilet also leaked which they paid me $100.00 plus parts to fix. I fixed the toilet and the ceiling fan in the bedroom but they still have not reimbursed me for the parts. I included the notice letter I sent to them the first night we arrived. The wife of the owner told me to turn off the fan if I did not like the noise it made. As you can see from the photos I included they are vastly different than what they have on the vacation rental site. I will be sharing my evidence and photos with the Florida AG to see if there is a fraud case. They should not be allowed to misrepresent their property so blatantly, take peoples money, and ruin their vacations.
I am writing this email in the middle of the night because I wanted to document our conversation. Right now my daughter is in tears because she can not sleep in either the pull out sofa or the main bedroom. We will most likely have to look for other accommodations if we can not. This means a huge expense on my part. I realize now why there were no pictures of the bathroom. Those photos would have exposed how dated your condo bath really is. As it is I have to stand sideways in the shower to use it while the showerhead leaks from it connection point. The swivel on the showerhead is frozen and I am afraid to apply too much pressure to it for fear it will break or further aggravate the leaking issue. The reviews I read about all of the cooking utensils being old and dated were accurate after all.
Here is a list of what we found:
1. Sofa bed support is broken and does not support even my Daughters body weight
2. HVAC system will not cool the bedrooms without running the units fan all the time. This generates noise so loud it is difficult to sleep.
3. Ceiling Fan in main bedroom makes a loud clacking noise and is unusable.
4. No dishwasher in the unit which would be okay, but there is not even a basic drying rack for dishes.
5. Peephole in main entry door does not allow for viewing which is very unsafe.
6, When the HVAC condensate pump cycles on it is so loud and it rattles and vibrates like it not secure.
7. We found food particles on the floor next to the oven ( pictures attached)
8. The fixtures in the bathroom are dated and rusted.
9. The commode leaks and it is placed so close to the vanity that I can not sit there without my knees running into the vanity.
10. As I stated above the showerhead leaks and it is frozen in one position.
11. I have to stand sideways in the shower because it is so narrow. That wouldn't be such a problem if I could adjust the showerhead and use the back half of the shower stall.
I know rental property can take a beating from year to year, but this unit needs some basic maintenance.
We could probably live with everything else except for the fans, and the sofa bed. Both my Daughter and I need to get some rest and we can not do that with the current conditions. As it stands now I will have to buy an inflatable bed to sleep on because my back hurts so bad from just a couple of hours of sleep on the main bedroom mattress. We are reasonable folks and I appreciate the discount you gave me, but this is a bit much and we would rather just have a clean and habitable vacation rental. Also the cooking utensils could use an upgrade, and the drying rack would be helpful. I have documented all of the above with photographs and video where necessary.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter,
