“Arbitrary Retention of Security Deposit”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017
person found this review helpful

Unfortunately, the owner arbitrarily retained our security deposit. She alleged we were over capacity, treating the security deposit as liquidated damages for any perceived 'breach of lease' (her words), rather than protection against damage. I suspect retained deposits are a second source of income for her. Further, we paid the owner $200 to have a noon to 1pm check in. Our rental was not ready until 2:30 or 3pm and the entire early check in fee was retained. The owner stays on the property until very late at night. If you stay here, you are very clearly the next check. Move on.

Would you recommend this hotel to a friend?   No.

Rest assured we do not view Security Deposits as a way to obtain extra income. As our rental contracts indicate, we will deduct Deposit funds only for specific things such as reimbursement for damage, breaking house rules, creating unsafe conditions, bringing extra unauthorized guests over the limit, misrepresentation or lying to management, disrespecting the property or the neighbors, extra cleaning that might be required beyond normal sanitization, smoking inside or leaving butts strewn on the grounds, illegal activities, and if the police are called to the property because of guest activities such as middle-of-the-night night noise complaints.

This guest attempted to sneak in 16 or more guests instead of the 10 he had told us, which was the occupancy limit allowed in the particular rental he had chosen and booked online through a third party service. Rather than evict the renter and all of his guests, as specified in his contract and as nearly every other hotel and property rental on the island (and probably around the world) would have done, he and his entire party were accommodated. However, extra charges were deducted from his deposit to reimburse costs of facilitating special arrangements for the unscheduled guests, as well as for additional utility costs and wear and tear on the rental.

We are sorry that this guest chose to disregard his contractual obligations and that he is upset by the charges; perhaps he can ask his extra guests for remuneration. However he must understand that we are a business and that there are regulations, rules and policies (such as occupancy limits) that are in place for the safety and protection of our guests, and that we and our guests must both follow these rules or face consequences. If nothing else, this review will send a message to this and future guests that violation of the rental contract will not be allowed.

Regarding the remainder of this review, we manage multiple homes and rentals in the immediate area and do try to have representatives available at the properties or close by to ensure our guests the best service available and in case of any issues. This guest inquired about early arrival less than one day prior to the start of his rental, but nonetheless arrangements were made to shift the cleaning crew to start working on his unit immediately upon the 11 AM check-out of the prior occupants. However, this person and/or his guests also began to arrive at 11 AM, hindering the process rather than speeding it along. They were allowed to hang out on the premises and our staff stored their personal items out of the rain while they waited, and the unit was ready for them to enter by the stated time.

The owners, management, and staff of these ideally located historic island homes want all of our guests to have a great time. We try to allow our renters to do what they want to do, within reason, and many of our guests come back and stay with us again and again. In return we ask for respect and consideration of the properties and the neighbors.
