Mary Lou, We are sorry you were not satisfied with the property. I understand there were a few issues that was brought to our attention. For example, you stated that the home was dirty. We had the property professionally cleaned a couple of days prior to your arrival. We also had a separate person inspect the home before your arrival and did not find that the home was dirty. We found this to be disturbing because, as evident in our past reviews, the most common statement about the home is how clean it is. We offered to have it re-cleaned to your satisfaction but you refused. In regards to the other maintenance items, the slider was readjusted to open better. It was not broken. The slats were reinstalled and was working fine. The toilet was repaired. The pantry door was adjusted. The palm was trimmed. This review was made within a couple of hours after you checked in and before we were given the opportunity to resolve the issues. We pride ourselves in great customer service. And when something is not right, we make every effort to remedy them to the best of our ability. We believe this 1 star review does not fairly reflect the home nor our customer service. We haven’t heard from you since this review which was written before we even had a chance to address your concerns. We hope you are now enjoying the home and we wish you the very best on your vacation.
