Poor neglected house!

  • 2 of 5

The location is lovely, a short walk to beach, walking distance or 5 minute Drive to the boardwalk at restaurants. The main reason we bought this house was because of the extra amenities: paddleboat , pool table and hot tub. The paddleboat was a beached, not tied up at the dock like the picture showed. The pool table was in the very musty garage (couldn't open the door without snaking). And based on the cleanliness or lack there of in the house we did not trust getting into the hot tub.

There were rroaches. and leeches. Shower stalls were dirty (dirty wash cloth found in one.) Most beds were uncomfortable.

Home advertised 2 1/2 baths. For first two days, 1/2 bath didn't have any water. It apparently fixed itself as we were never able to connect with maintenance crew. Who knew they would come at 9 o'clock on Saturday night? We didn't leave key out when we left for dinner.

Safety issues include broken newel post cap, which is only an issue as this is the only thing to hold on to when climbing stairs to the house. More importantly, the bathroom window didn't close. My guests were very nervous about intruders.

We paid extra for the linen package and were supplied with bare minimum towels. With 16 beds and a hot tub, I expected there would be plenty of towels. We bought toilet paper, hand soap, and paper towels, all of which I would think would be included.

Finally, with only one picture on the dining room wall, the home lacks charm!

Owner's Response: The house has NEW MATTRESSES, and HOT TUB is professionally serviced in between each and every rental. There are 16 sets of towels. Toilet paper, paper towels and soap are provided! Unfortunately, during hurricane season when it is soaking wet outside and the wind is howling, certain guests seem to find fault with everything about house, while other guests love the house and return year after year. The paddle boat is cleaned and covered in between rentals so that rain water will not collect and pulled up on the bank so that it will not get pond scum on it! The neighborhood is extremely safe and very upscale. The house is tastefully decorated but not cluttered. And finally, we do not have bugs! We value our guests and are always working to make sure that they have a pleasant experience!

Great weekend stay!

The house was perfect for our family. It had plenty of gathering space, and was a very close walk to the beach!

Lovely area, close to beach

  • 4 of 5

This house was nice. The beds were comfortable and the house was spacious. There are a few things that need to be done though. The air could not cool the house til morning. 77 degrees while cooking and relaxing was a bit warm but there are lots of fans to aid in that. The neighbors are very kind and helpful. With our large family though, this was great.

The weeds growing up the back of house need to be cleaned up and the siding had been melted by someone using the grill. (Assumption)

The perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from my vacation in Virginia Beach. From the moment we arrived and the time we left, Terri maintained an open communication and addressed the complaints listed by previous renters.

First off, I don't know what the previous renters were talking about. Upon my arrival, I immediately checked out the King and Queen beds. They were comfortable and clean. Regardless, Terri had two brand new mattresses delivered to the house on the 2nd day we were there. I wanted to ask the delivery men if I could keep those mattresses they were removing lol. Although I never used the futon, my adult son did spend two nights on it as we were playing "musical beds" as more family came in from New York for a brief stay. My son had no complaints about sleeping on the futon, However, another brand new futon mattress was delivered later that week.

The house was spotless when we arrived. The beds were nicely made up for our stay. The yard was clean and the hottub was ready and inviting. The jacuzzi tubs were wonderful after a long day at the beach.

We hosted a family reunion with family coming in from NY and Pa, and family that live in Virginia Beach. The house and property was perfect. Between the short walk to the beach, the hot tub, and the paddle boat, there was more than enough things to entertain the kids. We found plenty of boogie boards in the garage for use at the beach, saving us the expense of purchasing our own.

The carpet wasn't new but it was clean. Theres not much more I can say about this.

Overall, my family and I had a good time and enjoyed our stay at our rental home. The only time I had to contact Terri was due to the television setup in the master bedroom. My sister and her husband stayed there and didn't know how to access the TV due to the cable hookup. Terri had a serviceman there the next morning and he fixed the problem and explained the setup to my sister and brother-in-law. HBO was available in the great room as advertised but none of us watched it. We were always doing something and spreading time with eachother. Even though we all watch TV at bedtime, I don't think anyone was awake more than 15 minutes once our heads hit the pillow.

Thank you Terri for renting your home to us. I would definately consider staying here again.

Great location but house needs MAJOR cleaning and updates

  • 1 of 5

So, the 5 minute walk to the beach is awesome. The house needs a thorough cleaning, all new mattresses, and the carpet is pretty gross (unless old gum/sticky spots in the fibers are okay with you).

I traveled with my extended family, including young children, and stayed a week. The check-in times I received were different, but it didn't matter because the house wasn't ready until after 5pm on my check-in day due to the extended cleaning time from the previous guests. We arrived to the cleaning lady hauling a ton of trash out in the yard, including a broken lamp and bedding.

So that was annoying. But then the carpet seemed not all that clean and the sofa bed was broken, every mattress was terrible (part of my family left a day early because of this) and all the vents were dusty and I saw cobwebs all over several walls. Plus a bunch of lights were missing or didn't work and all the TV remote batteries were gone. The handyman came by twice to pick up trash and change lights/batteries but still, some lights just didn't work.

The good things - LOCATION! And we never ran out of hot water taking showers. We did have to buy trash bags and toilet paper before the third day (1st time I've ever had to do that with a VRBO listing) as well as an air matress on our second day. Towels were not bad and there were lots of them. Kitchen was nice too and the size of the house was fine for our group of 14.

Really, this property has potential. But the beds at the economy hotel we stayed in on the drive home were a million times better the beds in this house. And they were all terrible, including the futons. Also, there wasn't HBO which i didn't care about but others in my group did.

Overall, most of my family was pretty unimpressed with the house. And with the lack of quality sleep due to the crappy beds, it kind of ruined our vacation as the week passed. By far, the least comfortable VRBO stay I've booked. (Sorry, family!)

Owner's Response: Everything in this review has been addressed--cleaning, NEW MATTRESSES, new futon, etc!!! We do have HBO and always have! We only have a 5 hour turnaround time and rarely we have disrespectful groups that wreak havok on our home--but it does happen RARELY. When it happens, it causes the next group checking in to be unhappy with the condition of our home TEMPORARILY but rest assured that we value our guests and want everyone to be comfortable and happy!
