Island Getaways handling VBRO rental at Ocean Club West?

We stayed at Ocean Club West in 2011 (and loved both it and Grace Bay Beach) and are planning to return in April. I checked VBRO because I liked the idea of being able to pick a specific unit - last time we booked flight and a one bedroom via Expedia.

This unit looks great and has some good reviews from previous guests

http://www.vrbo.com/317269

And Island Getaways is the agency handling this property - has anyone else had experiences (good or bad) with Island Getaways?

It appears that we can have a beachfront unit for roughly the same price as one further back by giving up the maid service (which is a fine tradeoff). Anything else I should consider about going this route instead of renting through the resort?

If you have any problems with the unit... the resort will not be responsible. So try to get a contact # just in case... ask a lot of questions. What happens if you loose your key, Ac doesn't work etc......

Might be different at OCW, but most resorts if your not in their rental pool they are not responsible

Manager of this unit is on island. Know the owners and the condo. Great location at the resort. Just be sure you have her phone number in case there are issues, I am confident she will take care of you.

That's good to know - both that the manager is on island and that any maintenance issues (not that we had any during our last stay) would be the rental agent's not the resort's responsibility.

Thanks

Island Getaways is actually the property manager to our villa. She's phenomenal!

You can access Island Properties 24/7 (that's sometimes better than the resorts themselves!) She will respond immediately during your stay.

You're in good hands.

I'm exchanging e-mails with them right now to get the rental agreement - I am *so* looking forward to a return trip to Grace Bay Beach!

Thanks so much for the personal recommendations on the property manager - it makes all the difference.
