We stayed in this home for a week in February and enjoyed the comfortable furniture, beautiful views, and swimming pool. There were some issues we had to call the caretaker for, such as a broken door handle, and some things we wish were different, , but overall we were pleased with our experience.
For the first time in all of my many years of renting houses we were told several days after we arrived home that we would be charged for damage to a coffee table, a stain on a mattress, and a broken chair.(They ended up not charging us for chair damage, but $150 for the other damage.) We reported when we left that one of the recliners was in need of repair, but it was broken when we got there. I waited until we were leaving because I didn't want to be a pest to the property manager.
None of the furnishings in this house were brand new and all showed a bit of wear and tear but we have no way to prove that the damage they are charging us for was done before we arrived, and they have no way to prove otherwise. Who is going to take the sheets off a mattress to look for stains when they check in? One family member did say he remembered there being a stain on the coffee table when he moved a magazine right after we got there. .
I understand that people can damage a home or break things. In fact, I broke a water pitcher there and replaced it with the same exact pitcher. We own a rental property which makes us super sensitive about the being careful when we rent.
So, the home is nice but I suggest you do a very careful examination of everything when you arrive and report any little problem so that you don't have the experience we did.
