“Unhappy Customer”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014
person found this review helpful

My family and I rented this home from 8/2/2014-8/9/2014 for the sum of about $5,000. It was absolutely not worth it. When we arrived, the homes was not cleaned properly. There was tons of sand left in the showers, not enough towels, and what appeared to be left over puke splatters around the toilet in one of the bathrooms. One of the bathrooms was missing a toilet seat cover which in my opinion is gross. We later found the the broken cover was placed under the sink. There was also only television in two bedrooms and the living room. There was a huge amount of roaches in the home especially in the kitchen. So much so that we had to buy cans of bug spray and purchase ties to secure our food every night so bugs couldn't get in. The freezer also did not work for the entire trip though we followed the direction in the brochure to the t. This resulted in us buying ice pretty much everyday of the trip. We even had to throw out all of the frozen foods we had purchased for the week because nothing would freeze. The pots in the kitchen were gross so we also purchased a set of our own and the drawers were not properly cleaned in the kitchen. The worst part was walking down the shabby stairs to the beach and stepping on a protruding nail. The only highlight of this trip was the view from the balcony which was beautiful and the privacy of the beach. We had high hopes for this property, but unfortunately our expectations were not met. Hopefully the next renters have better luck with Wave Watcher than we did.
