Amazing house but needs some TLC

  • 2 of 5

Amazing house. Attention to detail in the house itself is second to none. However, the house was in serious need of attention. Responsive property managers. Awesome welcome package. Amazing beach. House has incredible water pressure for great showers.

Only 3 of 9 fireplaces worked for us and it was cold outside. Of the 3 that worked, neither was in the master bedroom or main living room. Our plans of sitting by the fire were nixed. No warning of this either. They knew about this problem.

Upstairs hot tub, big issue. The hot tub had no lid and did not heat up. I was given half of my heating fee back. The hot tub leaked making for a moldy and slippery tile on the roof. The leaking tub then dripped on you in the pool.

Running toilets x2 at least. Poor flushing mechanism in master toilet.

2 of the 4 rooms on the 2nd floor did not have showers in them. Just tubs. This was inconvenient for guests.

Ice machines. One did not work at all. The other had some mold inside but was usable. Mold on the sprayer faucet in the kitchen sink was present.

Half the blinds in the master bed room were nonfunctional and did not go up. Half of the view in the master was therefore blocked.

Wifi. SUPER slow. Unable to stream anything. Essentially unusable.

Now the worst part. The last day we saw a large rat, almost one foot. It scurried away under the island in the kitchen! It tore through some garbage. Also, the rat also destroyed garbage in garage removing a poo-poo diaper and scattering the contents around. One cockroach sighting on floor 3.

Although this is probably the best beach house I have ever seen or available, it has been neglected to some degree. I would rent this again ONLY if all the above were guaranteed fixed and functional.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Capitano is a spectacular home. It was such a spacious home and easily fit our group of 15 people. Everything that Five Star did for us during our trip was great. We absolutely loved hanging out in the hot tub on the roof of the home! Such an amazing view of the beach.
