It is always our top priority that our guests experience a stress free and enjoyable vacation while staying with us. Occasionally, there are hiccups, but we always do our best to fix any issues a guest may encounter. The same is true of your trip. I am sorry on behalf of iTrip that you had any issues at all! I can also acknowledge that we fixed every issue that was reported to us in a timely manner. We sent in professional cleaners to clean the carpet and remedy the smell. We had the AC unit professionally serviced and fixed, and once it was identified that the breaker was the issue with the stove, we fixed that as well. All of these issues became apparent during your stay. If we were aware before-hand, they all would have been handled prior to your arrival. While one of our maintenance team members mentioned this is an "on-going" issue, it is NOT an ongoing issue in this home. This type of AC unit is notorious for leaking based on it being gravity fed and does not have a motorized pump. Because of this, from time to time they tend to get clogged which then causes the very slow drip. So, this issue is not an ongoing issue specific to this home. I am sorry you felt you were told there was an issue we knew about and didn't fix, that isn't the case. As for feeling the home was "horribly dirty", as with all the other details we came and fixed for you promptly, had we been notified you were unsatisfied with the level of cleanliness, we would have gladly sent someone over to remedy that for you! As I mentioned before, I'm sorry your stay had a few issues and hope they didn't overshadow a great week in a beautiful home and location! We appreciate your feedback as we are always looking to improve and do our best for our guests!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we very much appreciate your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, and we are looking forward to having the opportunity to host you again in the future!
