I was expecting a "clean" property.
I do not mind the dated decorating, but the general cleaning standards were sub-par. Loads of dust on light fixtures, vents and headboards. We had a fruit fly problem until the two women of the house cleaned all of the kitchen cabinets. I chose to "stop looking" for fear of finding something I could not tolerate. We were also disappointed that the house did not have a vacuum available.
My recommendation is to change the flooring to hard surface and hire a new cleaning company.
Gosh, I wish you had called with any housekeeping issues. We have not had any complaints with this housekeeper and the owner has used her for over 2 years. Next time, please call our office and we'll address the issues right away.
The fruit fly problem has been in about 1/3 of our homes this summer. it is not a cleaning or pest control issue, but rather a nuisance bug of the area and this particular summer. We have them in my own home and found a terrific solution. We googled what to do...take a glass and fill 1/3 of the way with apple cider vinegar and add a little dawn dish soap. This attracts them and then they sink and die. We emailed all of our guests to alert them to the abundance of fruit flys this summer.
As for the vacuum, if there is not one there when I check it this Saturday, I'll bring one out. We stock every home with a vacuum and broom/dust pan.
While we appreciate suggestions on improvements, it is not feasible to just ask an owner to replace their carpeting with a hard surface. That can be very expensive and may not be affordable.
Thank you for your comments and I will forward to the owner once I have checked the home personally this Saturday.
“What a wonderful place to stay!”

My family and I have been staying at rented houses for many years. All my previous experiences were good, but I never wanted to return to any one place again. That is not the story for Kc's Retreat. I absolutely loved staying there and would love to go again anytime. The house was very comfortable and with multiple family units that included young children and a baby, having a downstairs that gave these families privacy and a place for the kids to play was wonderful. I must admit the very best feature of the house was the wonderful wide covered porch. My 84 year old mother spent most of her time on the porch reading and relaxing. My sister and her husband even set up their blow-up mattress on the porch at night to sleep with the ocean waves as their lullaby. The beach was also really great. We had it much of the times by ourselves or with just a few other families and those that were walking the beach length. We could see many sunbathers to the left of the house about 1/2 mile up where the island hotel was situated. A comfortable place with a great view, easy wide beach access, an absolutely wonderful porch, great ocean breezes, and frequent fly-overs by the brown pelican population.

Start to finish this was a wonderful getaway. The service from Seaside Getaways was top notch. They even have free Dvd's to use while there and a free beach bag!!! Just by stopping by their office.
The house had everything one could want for a vacation. The bedrooms are nicely appointed and the kitchen well stocked. Having two separate kitchens is an added bonus, especially the second fridge.
The best part without question is the location and the porch. Sitting on the porch early in the morning watching the dolphins and the sun rise and sitting there in the evening enjoying the breeze...it just does not get any better. We had beach all the time although I can see when the tide would be higher than normal there is the possibility that might not be the case. However it would not be a problem for us as we would just go up to the porch and enjoy the beach from there!
I would not hesitate to recommend this house and we are already planning our next visit!
