Vacation Rental Summary
nice plain cottage w inconvenient layout; the rear bedroom bathroom access was THRU the main bedroom. The unit had two DVD players in the unit, bout neither had a remote control making the use was inconvenient and not good for us.
Would have loved air conditioning, but they brought us (2) more fans after 5pm which is probably not considered an emergency but they accommodated us quickly and never said a word about after hours. Sleeper couch needs updating for sure. Queen bed was more like a little bigger twin, but very comfortable beds. The TV in the living room went out while we were there and they brought us a brand new 32 inch flat screen TV. Wi-Fi on the island is hit or miss, we did get it quite a bit at the house BUT since it is hit or miss you may want to turn your phone on airplane mode. We sure will return and hope in years to come we can afford to move to the island.
Nice clean, comfortable place with a great shower. Good location. Rented another cottage about 2 years ago and the place was shabby. 336 Descanso was a good price as well.
Janet at the Civr was terrific. The unit lived up to our expectations in every respect. The beds were very comfortable and the living/kitchen space adequate for a short stay. One bathroom and lack of bedroom privacy were not major factors for us (family) though next time we'll try a larger unit. The location is excellent -- 2 1/2 blocks off the beach, on flat land and central.
Had no issues with service, housekeeping was right on time when it was time to check out. Location was good, it serve our needs. House was dated, dining area was not level, but in good condition. Not bad for last minute availability. Would book again with Civr.
The cottage met our needs, was clean,the neighborhood was quiet, and every thing we used worked. We stayed to attend the Jazz Trax Festival.
This is a good small house overall, has nice new bamboo floors but there are two issues which make the almost un-acceptable. First the bathroom is very old, needs a major upgrade. There are openings/cracks in floor coverings,and walls that are a perfect place for insects. We saw several small roaches in the bathroom. Second, the couch is the family room is very old, and smelled. We preferred to sit on the floor most of the time.
It was a very cute house and my family and I loved it.. House was very comfy and it was clean. A very simple house and we felt at home right away. Civr's customer service was great as well! One of the downside was the Check-in and Check-out system of Civr. The system was okay but it would've been much better if the check-in was earlier than 3pm and the check-out was later than 10am. We stayed one night and we felt like we were on the run because of the check-in, check-out system. We arrived early on the island because we wanted to explore the island early but we have luggage so we had to drop off our luggage at the "luggage center". We then walked around the island and when it was time for the check-in we had to walk all the way back again to the "luggage center" and walk all the way to the house. It was a hassle but we didn't really mind. I just wished they would have the check-in early or maybe they could work it out with their customers. Anyway! No worries! It was a very cute house and we plan to book this house again in the future.
