Vacation Rental Summary
The house needs some repairs and TLC. Upstairs screen door and sliding glass door can't close together; upstairs fan is loose and noisy in the ceiling; glass shower door in master has no closure and water escapes all over; the beds are SUPER soft and broken down and probably need a mattress replacement. There is also no A/C in the house, and the weekend we were there, VERY HOT in the entire house, especially the upstairs loft bedroom and bath. No way to cool it down - just miserable to get ready in or sleep in so be forewarned. This unit also shares space with another rental unit, it's part of a duplex. We unfortunately had to deal with a very drunk, rowdy group of tenants over the two days we were there and they were up well past 1am drinking, smoking and cussing on the shared top balcony, so that wasn't a ton of fun. On the plus side, the golf cart with the house was great to get around in. The location is convenient and the room with the 6 bunk beds is a great place for the kids - we had six of them with us on this trip and they loved it. For a knock-around beach house it works, it's just a steep price for the rental considering the issues.
We have been renting this unit for over 10 years. It has grown worse and worse in need of repair and a good cleaning. Last year the property manager reimbursed us part of the fee due to multiple issues in the unit. There is a new owner that added gaudy furniture and some pretty ugly stuff; like faux fur sheets...Ewe!!! We managed to find some cotton sheets that fit and replaced them along with the fake satin pillow cases. Did I mention it was 88 degrees? Bbq was filthy and we had to clean it, shower heads screwed up, floors made our feet so black it will have to,"wear" off. To name a few things. We love the location and the golf cart but at these prices this place should b pretty cherry... And it isn't.
CIVR is working with the new owner of this home to keep improving the property with paint, furnishings, and improved housekeeping staff. It continues to be one of our most popular rental.
The best review of this property is that we've been returning for the past twenty years. What else can I say!
We were missing second sets of towels for about five of us. The supplies were delivered in a timely manner. There was dirt all over on the back patio outside the upstairs bedroom. Dirty mess left on back patio. And this was brought to the attention of your office. Also a fishing pole and clothing was left under front bench on the entrance patio. The hall bathroom toilet tiasue holder broke and my husband had to fix it. Also the plug/plunger of the hall bath sink would not open or close, so again my husband had to fix it so we could use the sink! The location couldn't of been better. Just awesome! We loved having the golf cart. Just kind of noisey when the upstairs occupants moved their heavy chairs.
We had a mixed-age group of 10...grandparents, parents, and grandchildren, who were ages 8 to 25, and I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the property, and Catalina. The bunk bed room is a perfect dorm for children, and the two sitting-room areas in the living room, gave everyone some space. The openness of the dining/kitchen/living room meant that we never felt crowded. Everything was clean, and attractive. The location was perfect for meandering through town, and the golf cart was an extra fun plus. The service we received was excellent, so easy, helpful, and friendly...it is the place we want to be when we return!
We loved the house at 211! The location was amazing! Close to the beach, stores and the ferry. Very clean and comfortable for ten! We cooked, barbecued, and lounged happily. Golf cart was old but very convenient. We were blissfully happy until the upstairs 211 guests arrived! The noise was horrific! The rental agency might look into carpeting that place! We hear every footfall and scoot of chairs! That was awful! Other than that it was wonderful! I would recommend this place! (just check to see 211 "up" is available (vacant) and all is good!)
This is the best house on the entire island. My wahine girlfriends and I have been coming to this island since 1989 and we love it. We got older, and richer, so now we can afford the "Best seat in the house!" It is pricey, but well worth it and when you share the cost, not so bad. Recent improvements made and even nicer now. If there is an issue at all, they hurry right down and fix it. Cant say enough, we have rented a ton of homes on this island and we have been using this one for about 5 years.
