The property needed to be cleaned

  • 1 of 5

When we arrived I went to place somethings in the refrigerator and condiments from previous guest was hanging out of the refrigerator door. There was 7 half used bottles of syrup, an orange juice bottle with less than a glass of juice, used ketchup bottles, jelly and other used condiments. There was half a carton of ice cream in the freezer. When I contacted the owners their response was they gave permission to other quest to leave items if they were not outdated. It made the refrigerator look dirty and not cleaned. In all the rental properties I have stayed in this was the first one when we arrived we had to make up the beds. I have always stripped the beds when leaving but never had to find the linens to put on the beds. The dishwasher was full of dishes, I did not check to see if they were clean. I paid for clean up, but I still stripped the beds and washed the dishes we used. Founded cereal pieces on the floor in the kitchen. I live in Galveston and rented the property because daughter was getting married in Crystal Beach and we did not want to deal with the ferry. The property has potential but I would not recommend this property until they clean it up. Most quest will not use other quest used condiments. I gave the property 1 star because it was close to the wedding site.

This beach house is located in a most peaceful community no busy traffic, plenty of room inside and out, just a short walk to the beach, the kids loved the wi-fi when it rained, our stay was a perfect 4 days. The mosquitos didn't have a chance. This place is at the top of our list.
