1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Unfortunately the 1st "day" of the rental was not as expected. When we arrived the place was a mess and had not been cleaned. Several hours were wasted waiting for the cleaning crew and then finally they came and cleaned the house but by then it was already dark. The owner was apologetic and did the best they could under the circumstances. The house was much smaller than the pictures appear on FlipKey web site. "Sleeps 12" is a misnomer. To "sleep 12" two people have to sleep on couches. And, one of the sofas in the living room was cloth and it was filthy dirty. I mean grungy dirty. Otherwise house was clean and has been remodeled inside. "Across the street from the beach" means a 1/2 mile walk each way so we had to rent 2 golf carts ($330.00). NO CELL SERVICE AT ALL.

I just felt things were misrepresented.
For $2,100.00 + cart rentals though clearly not worth it. Would never do it again.

Management response:

It it unfortunate that our home did not meet your expectations. Beginning your vacation in a home that wasnt prepared was unacceptable. We responded promptly to rectify this unforseen error. Our photos accurately depicted our home: it sleeps 12 in beds (including two on a sofa couch which is a Queen). The home is truly the distance to the beach...
