ITrip Rip Off and ZERO Customer Service --- AVOID AVOID AVOID
1/5 stars
Red Flag # 1 - I am in a situation where I needed to make a last-minute reservation for 20+ days. I called at least 3 times during the day and only got voicemails to pick up. Red Flag #2 - I asked for an earlier check-in, which was declined. However, I got the check-in instructions about an hour and a half later and only after I called. Customer Service Issue - I literally unlocked the door - checked the master bed, which is hard as a rock, and paying as much as I am for a condo on the water - they thought it was a good idea to put plantation shutters on the sliders - where half of the view is covered - making the property super dark and dismal. For 20+ days, I immediately called about 5 minutes after check-in to request a different unit or refund --- "upper management" declined both requests, and RED FLAG #3 - the contract states NO REFUNDS and that was stated to me as a deciding factor. SORRY, but I've signed many agreements where things weren't as thought and have been able to get refunded or moved with ZERO ISSUES. STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY --- do yourself a favor and book through AirBNB and VRBO - Both ZERO problems helping accommodate not as expected situations. I will be contacting the BBB, the owners of the Condo, amongst other parties to assist in getting a refund unless this company makes it right.
- Julie Cole

Julie we are responding to your comments with facts - You are correct in stating that you booked last minute...which means you booked late morning for a same day check in. Last minute bookings require some documentation to be submitted for us to check to make sure stolen credit cards and or identities are not being used. This was provided to you in writing and by the time you provided the necessary documentation it was check in time. We do not allow early or any same day check in without verifying the information - Making multiple calls over a very short period of time without immediate answer does not constitute poor customer services. Our team is always professional, courteous, friendly and helpful - This home is clean, beautiful and bright in beautiful beach decor, nothing about it is dark - Blinds, drapes and shutters are commonly used in beach communities to allow guests to regulate the amount of sunlight into the property as well as for privacy - The mattresses are hotel quality and comfortable, we have never had a complaint regarding their firmness - You demanded that we come to the property to remove the shutters and replace the mattresses. For obvious and multiple reasons we would not do that. You also demanded to be moved to a different property and again...for multiple reasons we would not do that as there is nothing wrong with this property, it is as advertised - You failed to mention that we offered to refund all but 3 nights + fees if you want to check out before the end of 3 nights, if not no refunds will be granted - We market this property and our other properties on the web sites you mentioned Sincerely, iTrip

This 3 bedroom condo is beautiful. It has everything we needed. The location is perfect. It is close to everything we wanted to do, yet away from the craziness of the cities. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony during the day and watching the dolphins, and at night to enjoy the peace and quiet. Perfect vacation getaway!
