ROACHES, FLIES, ANTS! BEWARE!!! AVOID!!! CAUTION!!! STAY AWAY!!!
Our family had a horrible stay and experience here and I truly say this with the utmost respect to those who rented us the home. I would love to give two stars just for the sincerity and accommodating from the management; but I think when renting at a place, accommodations is what you are paying for . What was so horrible about the home...BUGS and ROACHES! My family was absolutely terrified at the enormous size of the roaches in this place! I captured around "15" giant size roaches (about 2.5 inches long) and flushed them down the toilet. Those suckers are fast and ugly looking. In fact, when I was trying to capture one of them, it literally scrambled up my pant leg. My wife and kids freaked out, but I made sure I checked everywhere each time we came home and made the place friendly. Also, there were tons of smaller roaches on the kitchen counter, in drawers, cupboards, on frig, etc. We just made sure we left everything sealed and in the refrigerator! There were also many tiny ants crawling across the kitchen counter. We made sure our dishes were always cleaned and the counter washed each night. And then there were the flies! Tons of flies flying around! We found out our last night, that there was a good size place for them to come in through the kitchen window screen over the sink. The last night, it rained good and somehow, our rental was inundated with about 100+ fruit flies of some sort. I closed all the windows and saw an accumulation of "hundreds" of these little suckers between the window and screen over the kitchen sink. Cooking was scary and terrifying, because you were always being cautious and worried that a fly, roach, or any would get into your food. I highly recommend not cooking here! The place lacked some essential kitchen items (baking rake/sheet, tongs, can opener, fly swatter); however, when requested, the management was accommodating to bring these item to us. The pros about the place: We like the off-the-beaten-path location and the coqui frogs at night. There was plenty of living space! Advice to the owners: ROACH MOTELS!!! STICKY HANGING FLY PAPER STRIPES!!! FLY TIGHT SCREENS!!! CLEAN REFRIGERATOR!!! SPACKLE THE CREVASSES AROUND THE WALLS AND CEILINGS SO THOSE GIGANTIC ROACHES DON'T CREEP IN! Maybe you should advertise that there was roaches and bugs; that way your renters know what to expect when renting here; although, I guess no one would rent if they knew these insects were present.
