Old charm needs modern updates
Rating Details: I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was happy with the location. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. The property manager was adequately helpful. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This old charmer was quaint and the view was great. Out morning coffee gazing at the sunrise over the Choptank River was great. The private dock is perfect for water sports/fishing/crabbing. The salt water pool was well maintained. Towels, bed linens, and kitchen utensils/dishes/pottery were all provided. The gas grill was convenient. The dishwasher, washing machine and dryer were outdated and not working to potential. The remote location was inconvenient, grocery stores were some distance away. At a cost of $5000, this rental desperately requires some MODERN updates. The lack of water pressure and hot water reserve in the bathrooms made one very cranky, especially after a long day of activity. Yes, we certainly took turns showering and made sure the washing machine and dishwasher were not running simultaneously. The master bath windows were not dressed for privacy. Trash cans were not provided in bathrooms. The first floor bath had a hole in its window. Mgmnt was informed but there was no follow up. The bed linens had red stains. Mgmnt response was "was it the bed sheets or comforters?" Everything should be clean, no questions asked. The couch cushions smelled funky. Trash collection cans provided were too small. We resorted to storing trash adjacent to the cans. Plus, there was no outlet for recycling so, trash filled up even faster because we were three families. Though there was internet connection, wifi was extremely slow. Overall, disappointment describes Indian Fields. Though the grounds were well maintained, the interior was not. As a costly rental, it needs some modern updates. Kitchen and baths should be updated with up-to-date appliances and fixtures. The plumbing system needs an overhaul. The linens should ALL be clean and fresh. The sofas (and cushions) should be steam cleaned or replaced. Trash collection must be revised. Manager responded on 9/1/2014: We are sorry you had these concerns and agree this rental is definitely for those who value the grounds, view, privacy and feel of an older home vs. a newer rental. Some of your concerns are easy fixes (window treatment, repair, couch cleaning, more trash cans). Some are systemic with the home -
