Read the fine print!!!
The pictures were exact match to the INSIDE of the property. However this is NOT a condo as I know the definition. This is a three story walk up apartment building with 3 or 4 apartments on each floor. There are 18 steps up to each level so know your limitations before booking.
I’ve seen a few rave reviews about this Dave and how awesome he was, we never saw him so can’t comment.
Check out time is 9 am. We were out at 5 till and property management was there at 10 after. Kinda felt a little like he was looking for something wrong.
Some people complained about having to make beds or clean up after departing, we have no issues with this. This is about the fifth VRBO we have stayed in and they pretty much all ask you do basic clean up.
We had what we needed for the first night and shopping at rite aid was right around the corner for anything else..
We never needed to rent a car as trolley and Amtrak took us where we needed to go. Ubered airport, and a few other spots.
Condo near the beach
Dave was a gracious host and the condo was very nice with all the comforts of home but we had a few issues with the listing on VRBO. Saying it wasn’t wheelchair accessible was accurate but the listing should have included “no elevator.” My wife has a breathing issue and when she saw the 36 stairs to get up to the condo we considered cancelling and going home. Also, the listing of air conditioning as an amenity was only partially correct as it should have said “bedrooms only” with no A/C in any other rooms. Fortunately, we had a rather cool week but I have an old dog and he needs to stay cool. Amenities should be listed with all details.
You should also mention that while there is no smoking in this unit, other units have year round tenants and they do smoke.
Overall it was a good week and a nice place but I’ll not sure that I’ll use VRBO again after this experience.
Description of property misleading
The description of the property listing is misleading. There were numerous issues that I have. First of all, when on vacation, I do not want to have to clean, dust, do laundry, etc. I had to ensure that the place was as clean as it was when I got there (which by the way wasn't very clean). The apartment (not condo) was located on a 3rd floor. This was not stated in the description. Knowing that, I would not have booked since my husband had knee and back surgery and every time we wanted to leave, had to go 3 flights of stairs. There were not any extra blankets, even though the house manual said to fold and leave blankets at the end of the bed. A comforter and a blanket are 2 different things. We stayed for 1 week. They left 1 set of towels per person (there were 4 of us). So needless to say, we had to wash the towels a few times. They wanted the dishes washed. There was not a sink stopper, no dishtowel, no paper towels, no dish washing detergent. I purchases dish towels and dish washing detergent and left these items there. There were 2 rolls of single ply toilet paper for the 1 week for 4 people. I had to purchase additional toilet paper. When we arrived, the comforter was on the bed and pull it back, no bed sheets. They were folded in a plastic bag at the end of the bed for us to make our own beds. Window sills, medicine cabinets, baseboards, stove inside, were all dirty. The lights in the kitchen and bathroom were both burnt out. The description of having air, made you feel it was central air. However, there are 2 units, 1 in each bedroom. No air conditioning in the living room/kitchen. I will never rent this "condo" again. I will definitely ask allot more questions since they didn't have a handbook prior to me renting like some of the other places I have stayed while using Home Away.
We deeply apologize for not meeting your expectations. I would like to point out the property being misleading is troublesome. The listing does not state we would supply paper towels, toilet paper, shampoo or hand soap but as a courtesy and a starter pack we do. Also, based on feedback from previous renters, we have moved from making beds to supplying linens that are packaged directly from our laundry supplier (this ensures the beds sheets are actually fresh) as well as 2 bath, face and hand towels per person. I will agree with your comment regarding the condo being on the 3rd floor, when writing the description of the unit, Homeaway asked us specifically what floor the unit is located on (3rd) but is not present in the guest descriptions - this we will call HA about a resolution.
What a great place to stay! Thanks Dave!!!
Amazing location ( right behind the pier) still able to see the sunset etc. Dog park right next to condo. AC and nicely decorated
