Beautiful place

  • 1 of 5

The location and house amazingly beautiful. Discribed by a visitor as something out of a novel. Unfortunately they have a water leakage problem that is very clear has happened previously beacause of the patch work in the kitchen. We were not compensated for the hours of drying out the kitchen and laundry the two floors below the master bath. We were told the jets were not working but you could use the tub as a tub. We went down stairs in the night to find a kitchen full of water. Spent hours drying it for our wedding the following day. The only things the care taker said was "oh sorry". I also found the same communication problems as others reported on other websites. It took multiple calls to get anything out of care taker. On a good note they returned out deposit very quickly.

I had my wedding at this property. It was a gorgeous home and location. However, customer service was poor and the house was not up to par.

Firstly, we had a major ant issue in the kitchen which made it extremely difficult for my catering company to provide quality food to my wedding party and guests.

Secondly, the outside shower drain was plugged up with sand to the point where a ginormous puddle formed beneath the stairwell. On the day of the wedding, my groom had to dig out the stand with his hands so that I did not have to drag my wedding dress through the puddle.

Thirdly, the jetted tub was not working properly which was not communicated to me ahead of time. I see back in July of this year, a previous guest also noted this on his review.

These items could have easily been overlooked, if the management were respectful and kind.

I made several attempts to properly check in and out of the home with the head of cleaning, Carlos.

Ten days after I checked out of the home, I received a reply from Marie after requesting my security deposit back. She did not hesitate to point out that I left the home in “quite a dirty condition.” Marie sent me several emails back and forth threatening to charge me for the following items: excessive trash, extra laundry, stained towels and more! She was extremely condescending in her emails stating that “[she] will have to be more specific with young bride and grooms.” I guess a 24 page contract isn’t specific enough.

I asked if we could meet in person to discuss the charges. Finally, seventeen days after we evacuated the home, she agreed to meet with us with Carlos as well. Marie showed up to our meeting 30 minutes late with no apology. During the discussion, she argued with Carlos back and forth about how the home was left and what was appropriate and what was not. We were also chastised for leaving prior to 11:00am on check out day.

After weeks of exhausting and demeaning emails as well as an unprofessional face-to-face meeting, we finally got our negotiated amount of the security deposit back twenty-six days after evacuating the home.

I should have seen this coming as Marie was not prompt at replying to me prior to my stay at all. She was always coming up with one excuse after the next. She was extremely unprofessional and rude. I just wanted to give “young bride and grooms” a heads up about my experience. I was lucky enough to be local so that I could fight for my security deposit back.

The Perfect Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

You literally can not get any closer to the sand. This house is beautiful, very spacious and all the patios have the most breathtaking views. My boyfriend and I came over Labor Day weekend with 2 other couples and we all brought our dogs! Carlos and Dave were super helpful during the check in and check out process, giving us all the info we needed to feel right at home. We left the house only to go to the grocery store and then once on the last day for breakfast at the nearby Beachbreak Cafe. Seriously could have not asked for a better weekend. We all still talk about how we can't wait to come back. Definition of the perfect beach house.

Gorgeous location with fabulous views. Otherwise a major disappointment. The jetted tub was not working. The electronics were flaky, the dvd did not work. One of the toilets kept leaking. Cuesticks were broken or warped

Marie initially had us coming in 2 days later. When she did return calls, it was often after 10pm. On our last full day, she droned on how she is geeting too old to manage properties and then badmouthed her daughter-in-law

cannot recommend

Made our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had booked another property and planned to host my daughter's birthday party there; upon arrival we discovered the owner had double booked the property and we weren't allowed to stay. Marie to the rescue! I called her on Sunday morning and she returned my call within an hour or so. Miraculously, her gorgeous property right on the sand was available for just the nights we needed and she bent over backwards to make everything happen for us. She was so accomodating, generous and inviting! The location of the house is perfect, away from the crowds on a lovely stretch of beach. We saw tons of dolphins and sea lions right from our balcony and all of our family and friends had a fantastic time. We hope to be back again soon!
