Vacation Rental Summary
The location is great if you want to be away from the crowds for most of your time. Being part of the Plantation means you get indoor pool, gym, tennis courts, etc. which is great. The house is very spacious and easy to keep clean. Unfortunately, there were a number of small things that added up to make me not want to rent here again given the price. Master shower door will not stay on track Bare exposed bulb on living room fan Cheap deck furniture Cheap bedding Poor/outdated wi-fi transmitter Grills found in outside "closet" were both covered in mold (ugh!) Complete lack of supplies (we had to run into town immediately to buy foil, dish soap, baggies, paper towels - typically we are used to these being around and we buy and leave any replacements) TV in living room did not work and it is a tiny, old, tube-type set. Did we come here to watch TV? No! But, if it is provided it should work (we called Kaiser and repairman came immediately). It was also the start of March Madness and we wanted to see our team play. Kids wanted to watch a movie and DVD player was not connected. Again, little things but they add up. Given the rates charged for rent I think the owners need to invest in some updates. Kaiser's service and overall cleanliness were great.
