I liked having more than just a hotel room and having a kitchen. I didn't like that you never are able to get anyone on the phone and you do not have someone on sight (or even in town) for troubleshooting.
When I first reserved the unit, 4 months before my stay, I spent weeks trying to call the owner/managers, calling the # listed on the ad. I left voicemail after voicemail, for 3 months, trying to obtain info about the property, like keys, access, parking, etc. No one called me back. It got to the point that 3 weeks before my stay, I called Expedia to cancel, since no one was giving me access info, and no one would return my voicemails (at least 18). Expedia contacted the owner (apparently using a different number than listed) and had them call me. They never called me.
I called Expedia to give me the # that they called to reach the owner. I called the different number and was finally able to speak with them. I asked them why they never return any of my voicemail messages, and they said that they never got any from me. I gave them the # I called 18+ times and they said that was his old phone # and that he hasn't had that # in months. I told him that the voicemail still says it is your #.
At arrival, they had to move me to another unit because my unit was flooded. The new unit was nice. I had 1 incident where I wasn't able to enter the unit b/c the lock box was malfunctioning. I spent hours waiting for a locksmith, b/c the owner didn't have anyone local to assist.
