Horrible Experience at Island Shores #157

Elizabeth J. does not recommend this vacation rental.
We stayed in Property # 816903 Island Shores 157 on July 25 thru 28. I have used VRBO several times in the past and was highly satisfied. Our properties were always clean, updated, and furnished with everything we needed for a relaxing stay. THAT WAS NOT THE CASE WITH THIS PROPERTY. I was appalled at the condition and after seeing the RATS running in the sand outside of the condo relaxation went out the window! I have already filed a complaint with VRBO and plan to contact the local health dept and consumer protection agency Monday morning. I work for a State Legislator and handle constituent complaints like this all the time. Now it is time to file my own. <br/><br/>I have listed the rest of the issues with this property below:<br/><br/>Property was not as described, pictures had to be photo shopped or taken immediately after the last renovation which had to be 15-20 years ago. <br/><br/>Apt was dirty - in fact filthy! cob webs on the ceiling and walls, walls were covered in dust and had not been vacuumed or touch with a rag for years. <br/><br/>Yes there was an gulf front balcony. But within a couple moments of checking in, my husband saw a rat in the sand by the balcony. With that went the idea of enjoying the evenings sitting on the balcony watching the water! So much for the gulf front idea. Does the local health dept know about the rats? They will on Monday! I also plan to contact the local Visitors Center & Consumer Protection Agency. <br/>The apt was decorated nicely, the rest was outdated and gross and the dirt outweighed the decorating. We also had an 8 month old infant with us. We could not let her down on the floor to play due to the dirt! Says it sleeps 6 because of sofa bed. We had two couples in the apt. the sofa bed was horrible, old and the mattress cover was dirty as was the mattress. The one couple had to sleep separately in the twin beds. <br/><br/>Ceiling paint was peeling in kitchen and bath, we found a chunk RAN OUT OF ROOM TO FINISH C

A guest from McCalla, AL recommends this vacation rental.
Overall, it was good. It was easy to book and they sent plenty of emails regarding my stay. The place was right on the beach. It had full time security. It had easy access to the washer/dryer. The condo itself needs updating. The toilet seats are very chipped (doesn't cost much to change out), paint needs updating, toaster was from the 70's, bathroom around shower tub has water damage, dishwasher/oven were just ok, need better/larger towels for the bathroom!! The positive: it was on the beach. The cleaning job BEFORE we came in was not good!! Dust on dressers, mirrors not cleaned, floors felt dirty.

A guest from St. Peters, MO does not recommend this vacation rental.
Overall it was a nice stay, the location was perfect for easy access to beach, shops and good food. There were a few details that do need addressing and I am glad I was asked. <br/>1.) extra cooking items would have been nice: crock pot & bagel toaster.<br/>2.) the shower liner in the master bath had orange pink mold at the bottom.<br/>3.) rats live on the other side of the balcony in the sand dune. They were visible from the balcony of every floor. TOTALLY unacceptable and very gross!<br/>4.) they are only 3 chairs at the table for eating, four would have been nice, ad it advertises to sleep 8.<br/>5. only 'initia'l supplies are included: 1 roll of TP per bathroom, no napkins or paper towels, 1 dish cloth and 1 dish towel. <br/>6.) extra blue blanket was full of holes and worn.<br/>7.) items recommended to bring would have been helpful: dish washer tabs, napkins, paper towels, toilet paper, beach chairs and umbrella.<br/>GOOD POINTS: great location, decor was current, beds were VERY comfortable, kitchen appliances were all new and the ice make was great!

A guest from Vicksburg, MS recommends this vacation rental.
We highly recommend Island Shores #157. It is conveniently located within walking distance of shops and restaurants. The beach is not crowded and the staff is excellent! Island Shores #157 is clean and has plenty of room for a family to enjoy. Love that this unit is on the first floor. We will be staying here again in the future.

Well pleased

Charles H. from Florence, AL recommends this vacation rental.
The condo was very nice, few steps to the beach, great view from the 1st floor<br/>balcony. Has a place to rinse sand off before entering room from the beach. Even had toys for playing in sand for children. Recommend this condo to anyone. Will stay here again if available. <br/>
