My family and I rented this place as a get away from everyday life. Unfortunately, from the moment we stepped into this terrible smelling lodge I have had to call maintenance. The mold and mildew smell was overwhelming. The windows are nailed shut so there was no hopes of airing the place out. The air conditioning was broken in the filthy dirty kitchen. The kitchen fan had so much dirt on it we never wanted to turn it on over the food. The floor boards are rotted out both inside and outside so at any moment you risk falling thru the floor. The ladder to the top bunk in the closet sized room was broken and rusty nails were sticking out. The doors in the home do not stay shut because nothing in this home is square. There is a decade worth of dirt on everything from pictures to souvenirs. The tv hutch leans to the left and had been glued back together. The main bathroom toilet seat was held together by masking tape. The a/c return had so much dirt, dust and grime on it maintenance had to clean it in hopes of getting the central air to work properly. Two of the bed frames broke during our stay so we had to sleep on mattresses on the filthy dirty floor. The only positive to this was I was able to remove the moldy bed skirt. When the bedding was removed in one of the rooms there was a dried out palmetto bug between the sheet and mattress. There are multiple dead palmetto bugs, ants, spiders and other critters inhabiting this property. The neglect is inexcusable and this place should not be rented until all the issues with safety and hygiene have been fixed. I have left multiple messages for the customer service department at the property management company but have not received a response. This rental properly
was over $2,000 and is in the worst condition of any place I have ever visited. Please do not waste your money on this home no matter what the rental rate is. It will ruin your vacation. There are many other well maintained homes/condos for rent in the St. Augustine area.
