Beautiful Peaceful Location BUT Lacking Upkeep
The numerous 5 star reviews helped us decide to choose this home located on Eastern Bay. The location and view is definitely 5 star. The inside of the home on the first floor and the bedrooms are very nice however my reason for the 1 star poor rating is as follows: We found bedbugs in the yellow bedroom. The occupant of that room had numerous bites but didn't actually see the bedbugs until the final night so we thought they were mosquito bites. We left a sample bug wrapped in a tissue for the owner so he can get his home exterminated. A previous reviewer mentioned bugs in this bedroom but failed to say bedbugs. Check in is 3pm - cleaning people did not finish until 4pm. When we finally got in the home was full of flies, we killed over 100 during our 3 night 4 day stay. The cleaning people told us the dishwasher was broken and Rick was made aware of it. He offered to replace it during our stay but we were only going to be there a short time so I told him to wait until we checked out. The cleaning people also failed to leave us a key to the home and Rick never answered my text regarding the fact we had no house key so we had to leave the home unlocked when we went out. The downstairs toilet stopped flushing and the plumping throughout the house was gurgling leading us to believe the septic was close to full. The chairs in living room are dirty and torn. Both porches were dirty and don't look like the pictures. Previous reviewers mentioned ripped screens and broken windows. They are still not repaired. The upstairs porch (with the swing bed) now has 3 beds (picture shows 2) therefore very limited walking space; it has an AC window unit boarded into a window with a plug that can't reach the receptacle without blocking the entrance to the porch. Also, this porch has a screen door which lets all the AC out?? I texted Rick to make him aware of all the above mentioned issues. I told him the home is in a gorgeous location however the home itself is showing a lack of upkeep and repair. My biggest concern is the bedbugs found in the yellow bedroom. I know for a fact that's what they are and now we are all worried about bringing them home.
Gorgeous Waterfront Location, comfortable with a lot of room!
