“Flaws that can easily be fixed with some TLC”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Just leaving this rental and feel compelled to leave a review for management and future potential renters. You can tell the unit was once very nicely decorated and loved but it is in desperate need of an update. The upholstery, wallpaper, (dusty) faux potted ivy plants, etc. are dated. The bedspreads are in dire need of laundering as they all have a hint of brown to them (dirty), in addition to white crusty stains on more than one which can turn any renters stomach. They were the very first thing to get pulled off upon our family's arrival. The carpet was horrendous! We actually vacuumed after finding dirty snack wrappers, dirty socks, Lots of debris, dead bugs, in addition to terrible carpet stains, and a three inch nail in the middle of the floor that our 2 year old found. After that, we ended up calling and they sent a cleaning person out to wipe everything down and vacuum again. The second day of our vacation, our family of 5 including an infant (in a car seat) piled on the golf cart to take a short trip to the beach and the cart died on us on the main road. It had charged all night and it was our first trip in it. It was 4th of July so we were sure nobody would be available to help. Luckily, Melly from Goode Vacation rentals came to pick us up in her personal vehicle and was fantastic. That was the highlight of our trip. She certainly went above and beyond! Thank you, Melly, if you read this. Later that day, the cart was returned and a maintenance person checked the charge box and all seemed fine. The cart never worked for the remainder of our trip and we made two additional calls to GVR to inform them but nobody came to repair it.
A major tip for future rentals is be sure to bring your bug spray. Every member of our family, in addition to 4 more in laws who visited, were eaten alive by Mosquitos every time we walked out of the door which was unfortunate because it seemed to be a lovely spot to explore with our young children but we were forced to stay indoors when at the unit.
The unit is well equipped with dishes, pans, utensils, etc. but almost every cabinet is completely filled leaving zero space for your pantry goods so we needed to move items around and I took the time to somewhat organize them as there was no organization to the items in the kitchen cabinets-ie, bowls, plates, various measuring cups in all cabinets instead of just all together/stacked neatly in one spot. I recommend the owner arrive to tidy up these areas, including drawers and cabinets in the laundry room. They were all cluttered and full. My 6 year old found some sharp tools and an exacto-knife in a low drawer on top of a cabinet with games. Kind of dangerous for a family friendly unit. I will add that several plug sockets had child safety plugs in which is a nice touch. As another reviewer added three years ago, the furniture is not very comfortable (mainly the queen and king mattresses) and bring your pillows if you/your family prefers to sleep with more than one per person.
The TV in the living room is nice, the sunroom was great, it was nice to have the two pull out sofas which we used. Overall, the space in the unit was great for all of us. For families considering this unit with young children/infants, I did not find any equipment (high chair, pack n play, etc) which is not expected but we often find those in other rentals. There is also no rocking chair/glider in the unit.
Lastly, we had to retrieve and return keys to the unit from an office that is in the opposite direction of leaving so upon departure today we had to back track. Most rentals have lock boxes so that was a minor inconvenience, as well.
I usually do not feel compelled to leave a review that is anything less than positive but felt compelled to today. It certainly made do for us but next time we will search a little longer. Hope this helps!

Management Response
17 May 2010
We have found that "metal sponges" do not do well in our vacation rental properties. Guests tend to use them on Teflon-coated pans and ruin them. Bathroom mats are laundered periodically but cannot be done every week due to a lack of time on busy turnovers unless there is an obvious need. They are however vacuumed every week.

We do not offer "beach chairs" with our rentals. However, guests sometimes leave the ones they buy and are often placed out of the way. We try to find them and throw them out because they are typically cheap and not meant for long term use.

All of our properties are on a high quality, pest control program and are treated regularly. That said, we are in a sub-tropic zone so despite the obvious advantages, we do have need for pest control.

The Links are some of the most spacious and sought after 3 bedroom villas on the island. 8B is no exception and is well-furnished as a vacation rental, which may not have as much furniture as one might find in a full time residency in more wide ranging climates. Brian Goode, Broker-in-Charge
