Everything started very friendly, when booking the condo. Richard did everything he could to make sure I sent the check.. (I should have known something was wrong when he insisted I make the check out to him personally, rather than an LLC or corp.)
Once the check was cashed, things started on the down hill turn...
The "welcome package" sent was an absolute joke...
Still looking to make the best of it, we got on the airplane and hoped for the best...
Entering the condo, the smell of mold and mildew was almost overwhelming.
Large (very questionable) stains throughout the entire carpeted area. Trying to walk on the carpet without shoes was abhorable because either your socks were going to be soaked from the dirty wet carpet, or your feet were going to slosh in the mucky mess. Over half of the light bulbs were burnt out. Bathrooms looked like they hadn't been cleaned in weeks.
The temperature inside was 79 degrees which I didn't think much of, because it was reasonably cool outside. The A/C was not running, so I turned on the A/C and turned it down to 76 degrees. Tried to turn on the ceiling fan, but quickly turned it back off because it shook and wobbled SO violently I thought it was going to come apart and harm someone...
Second day; Woke up, it was still 79 degrees inside. Stiff back and sore neck from the 35+ year old mattress, feet still sloshing in the mucky "carpet".. After using a whole bundle of Lysol wipes and whole can of Lysol spray to try to sanitize the filth, Hop in the shower... shower head leaking ALL over... Thinking the thermostat was probably like everything else in the place (a little off) I turned the A/C down a few more degrees and we went to the beach.
Third day; We decided to stay inside for the day. Now it's 80 degrees in the place... turn down the thermostat a few more degrees and we went bowling, to the arcade, and a few other air conditioned things, expecting that when we got back to the condo, it would finally be cool... WRONG A/C broke and the place was 81 degrees.
Tried to call Richard, no answer...
Emailed Richard, no response until late the next day which was then Friday.
He ran me around the bush, trying to get me to buy fans to "help cool the place down" while refusing to repair the A/C.
Asking for a refund, as any normal person would do, he calls me a scam because I didn't notify him of the A/C the minute we walked in the door... needless to say, I'm severely upset because I just totally waisted a week that was supposed to be vacation.
I still maintain that I'm owed at least a full refund..
Do yourself a huge favor, stay away from this condo, DBK properties and Richard J Lundblad.
This is a great place to stay i had alot of fun with my family.the kids loved that the pool is right outside of the door so while they played in the pool i was cooking on the grill i will be coming back
We loved this place. It was quiet and convenient to all things that we wanted to do. The grocery stores and malls were within excellent distance. The neighbors were nice and quiet as well. It great location for just relaxing with your partner, family or just by yourself.
We truly enjoyed ourselves. We will return again and again.
Took my whole family of five to the beach for a week for less than one thousand dollars. Awesome and clean accommodations! You have to drive to the beach, but we were ok with that.
Our stay at these condos was great for our family. I traveled to Myrtle Beach, SC with my husband and our 15 year old granddaughter. The property was up kept, clean , homey and convenient. The lower level was the best with the courtyard and pool being right outside our condo and the screened in patio area was a big plus.
We would return here in the furture with our family and we would recommend this property to others interested.
