Management Response
Aug 20, 2014
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION, that is what "Keys Ocean Drive" rental delivers, plus this rental is WELL stocked- read my MANY reviews that re-enforce these 2 points as well as many other favorable features! We have the MOST Guest Reviews on our Island of KCB (now 64!).

I received this TA/Flipkey guest review today, 8/20/14. This family checked in on 7/19/14 and never contacted me about anything- our A/C, dirty air vents nor "somewhat clean" home. We cannot address issues that we are not advised about! When guests contact me or my 24/7 Contact Person, we immediately resolve any issues such as these. And the fact that we rent to dogs AND we also rent to guests without dogs speaks volume for our MANY great reviews for "cleanliness"! I will now address this with my cleaning staff and survey other guest for their opinion on this subject!

Let me address these issues:

1. on 7/17/14 our A/C company installed a new condenser coil, evacuated system, recharged and checked operations. This coil was still under warranty, labor $600. Since this checkout on 7/26, no one else has called with any A/C concerns.
2. On 8/16 my cleaning gal text me that she had had a handyman come in and clean our air vents.
3. It is always difficult to deduct from a Guest's deposit. This Guest violated the garbage policy and I did deduct for this violation, one of very few deductions since starting in 2004.

As a rental, unfortunately signs are necessary: "many signs posted everywhere for reminders" as it pertains to her comment:" Just remember to pack your last bit of garbage up with you when you leave or you will be charged."

First, the signed contract has guidelines for garbage:
• RENTAL AGREEMENT: "All garbage “bagged” and deposited in garbage cans to curbside must be completed xxx before checkout, xxx Place empty cans (NO exceptions) back under carport before checkout. (deposit deduction for non-compliance strictly enforced). xxx owner will return the security deposit less any deduction for damage to the property, violation of xxx Non-compliance of the garbage will result in a deduction as this requires an additional trip by our Property Manager. xxx"
• Then I address garbage again when I mail out a Packet of Information including: CHECK IN INSTRUCTIONS and CHECK OUT INSTRUCTIONS

1. CHECK IN INSTRUCTIONS: one of many items addressed is- CHECK OUT INSTRUCTIONS: xxx ALL bagged up trash taken out to CURB prior to 6AM Tues. and/or 6 AM Sat. NO exceptions.
2. CHECK OUT INSTRUCTIONS: one of many items addressed is- Dispose all bagged garbage into large cans in outside garbage cans (no recycle bin) under carport. Non-compliance will result in a deduction from your security deposit as this requires additional visits by our 24/7CP. We have been having many problems with trash pick up days/times- please be sure to remember! "

• Then I again address garbage "CHECK OUT INSTRUCTIONS " posted on the refrigerator, it is unfortunate that this guest did not follow contract or reminders. "Dispose all bagged garbage into large cans in outside garbage cans (no recycle bin) under carport. Non-compliance will result in a deduction from your security deposit as this requires additional visits by our24/7CP. We have been having many problems with trash pick up days/times- please be sure to remember! Any trash accumulated or forgotten after pickup needs be taken with you when you leave the Island (throw away in gas station or restaurant trash receptacle)! No guests should be welcomed by stinky trash from the previous guests!!! "

I hope that I have addressed all of the comments on this 3 Star Review. Regrettably, I will deduct when a guest ignores the contract and the many mailed out as well as posted reminders! Even if I do get my first 3 star... Patty

We worked with Patty to set up a week in April (2014). Our dealings with her were outstanding and when we arrived everything was perfect. We were amazed at all of the things Patty had included in the rental. It is located in one of the nicest parts of the island and the included access to Inch Beach and The Cabana Club were wonderful extras. We are looking forward to returning in the future.
