“View was great, house was just okay”
Reviewed 25 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We rented the house with friends. The size of the house was great, the views of the ocean and location were great, but some repairs are desperately needed. There is still mold in the downstairs bedroom closet that was commented on by a previous guest from a few months ago. We paid almost $300 extra for the elevator which was extremely slow and didn't work when we first arrived. It had to be "reset" a few times during our visit. After maintenance made a second trip out, they showed us how to reset it ourselves. The dishwasher didn't work. We called maintenance again. They were in no hurry to fix it. We first called on Sunday, it was finally fixed at the end of the day on Tuesday, and getting them to accomplish it in that amount of time was challenging. When they came in we asked if we could at least be provided with a dish drainer so we wouldn't have to use all of the towels we rented to put the hand-washed dishes on to dry. The garbage disposal stopped working on Thursday, but we were tired of trying to get things fixed, so we gave up on it. The house itself was fine, but when you chose a rental based upon its amenities you expect them to at least be functional or repaired with a sense of urgency and in a timely manner.
