When we arrived at 11:00 a.m., we asked for an early check in, and was told that we could for a fee of $150, which we declined and they told us to come back at 2:00 p.m. and we could check in. We called at 2:00 to check in and was told the house was not ready.....(was it ready at 11:00?? For $150?). We explained this couldn't be correct, was put on hold and then advised that why, yes, we really could check in at 2:00! Amazing! We get to the house, the grass and weeds are up to our knees literally, there are no towels, none of the t.v.'s work and there are no kitchen towels either. Before we called maintenance, one of the guests killed a large cockroach on the headboard of their bed.....We called maintenance and they came up and fixed the t.v.'s, Housekeeping then delivered towels (except for the kitchen) and they put in an order for the grass/weeds. The pool was dirty, which we told them on Sunday and Tuesday we went back to the office and told them we wanted the pool cleaned, period. They came on Wednesday, which was good. They came and sprayed for bugs - our other guests would not unload their cars until they sprayed - they didn't want to take home any uninvited guests!

The house itself is nice and has a good lay out - we enjoyed it after all of the issues were taken care of.....the bathrooms were very very small, and the countertops dated, the carpet in the bedrooms was indoor/outdoor, I think?? The pool is EXCELLENT.....there are plenty of utensils and dishes and overall it was a nice stay -

We have been renting from Resort Vacation for years and years, but due to their new policy of charging $150 for an early check in of 3 hours - nobody was in the house the day before us, so it was ready at 11, we may check out other rental companies and VRBO. We've always been able to check in early with no problems - except for one time, we didn't get in a house until 6:00 but they were slammed that spring break. I guess what's disappointing is the $150 for 3 hours, and the issues once we were allowed to check in - the house is good though and families would enjoy it - but I'm not exaggerating when I say the bathrooms are very very very small.

We always urge our guests to call our office immediately so that we may correct issues quickly!

Dear Mark & Shelia,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Gone Coastal. We are pleased you enjoyed the home and the location. We did have a leak in the kitchen during the Summer so we had to make quick repairs to the ceiling and match it as best we could since the home was booked back to back. The homeowner is aware of the repair and when they repaint the interior in the future, they will address the ceiling. The property also receives lawn care services, but additional landscape is at the owners choice. We appreciate your report of the condition of the decks and stairs. For the safety of our guests, our maintenance department has performed an inspection and any issues found were corrected. We hope to see you on the island again soon!

Sincerely,

Resort Vacation Properties, of SGI
