This was a good house and great location that fit the needs for our large family. Hilton Head Rentals was responsive to our needs. Major issue with the air conditioner that went out on third floor for two days. Had happened before according to repair company and owner had not fixed in the past. There are three bedrooms on the third floor and we had to move 9 people to couches and the floor for one night. Also, refrigerator leaked the entire visit, causing a mold issue on the floor in the kitchen. The refrigerator has needed to be replaced for several years, according to other reviews posted below. Rental company did a good job addressing other minor issues and getting service companies to house, but to have ongoing issues that do not get repaired by the owner is inexcusable for the amount of money this house costs. Hilton Head Rentals called us back throughout the night as they worked to get repairs completed...great customer service. We would not stay at this house again unless these issues were addressed. Would work with rental company again.
First of all, we would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review about your week at Guscio 7, a wonderful oceanfront 7 bedroom, 7 ½ bath property which sleeps 24 people. We also appreciate your comments about Hilton Head Rentals & Golf being very responsive to your needs and how great our customer service is. If it were possible every single vacation would be the utmost we could offer our guests. Sometimes, unfortunately, this isn’t possible. Mechanical things such as appliances, AC/heat units, swimming pool heaters, etc. wear out and break. Most of the time they are worth repairing, sometimes not, but always, the first thing is to address the problem and access the options available. These things do take a little time and 24 to 48 hours is not the least bit uncommon. We realize that being inconvenienced is nothing any of us would want on our vacations, but we honestly do try our very best to handle issues as quickly as possible and resolve them to everyone’s satisfaction. You stated that according to the repair company, the problem had occurred in the past and the owner had not repaired it. If it had not been repaired, it wouldn’t have worked for the first few days you were there. So they must have repaired it for it to have broken again. I wonder sometimes how quickly our guests think they can get a repairman to their homes and get something fixed. Usually takes several days, doesn’t it, between scheduling, getting parts, doing the actual repairs, etc. Well, it happens here too! I truly believe that sometimes we forget, this is a resort area with thousands and thousands of more people here during the summer months especially, when the strain on appliances such as air conditioners is at the highest levels. We humbly apologized for the inconvenience you experienced, tried to do our very best to get it fixed as quickly as possible, worked with you to resolve the issue and gave a partial refund. I don’t know what else could have been done. Also, the refrigerator in the kitchen had leaked off and on, however, there was a brand new refrigerator in the garage, purchased just before your arrival date.

We've been coming to HH for years now. Best home we've ever stayed in. Well maintained and perfect for our needs.
Could use a more efficient refrigerator/freezer given the number of people in the house.
Hi and thank you for your review of Guscio 7. Yes, it is a remarkable home and has just about everything you'd imagine in a vacation rental, sorry for the inconvenience of not having a shower on the ground level....there is that outside shower for rinsing off though when you come up from the beach...
