Dear pbishop,

Thanks for letting us know your thoughts on Carolinian II. We apologize that the property was not what you expected, but appreciate you reporting that we did in fact correct everything that was brought to our attention during your stay.
The dryer was indeed repaired, but evidently it was fixed on the day you departed. The dishwasher as well is in working order.
We look forward to serving you again in another property soon.
All the best from the beach!

“Not What I Expexted”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

person found this review helpful

We had a good time with the family. But we had a bed that was not made, pool alarm sounding every ten minutes the first night, dish washer would not work, water had never been turned on, I crawled under the counter and fixed that but then no hot water and dishes would not dry. Some trash cans had no bags, and two rolls of toilet paper for 6 baths?? Up stairs had not been dusted, coffee pot was gross. Could not use the hot tube(this is one reason I rented the place) sand all in the bottom jets and lights would work sometimes and foam when you turned it on, not clean enough to get in, very disappointed. Outside chairs not washed white would come off on your clothes.List goes on. They came the next day and brought toilet paper, and the guy just disconnected the pool alarm. Just was not as clean and ready like it should have been.

Ms. Redford,

Thanks for taking time to fill out a review on this property. We apologize that the stay at Carolinian II was not what you expected.
We of course did get your call about the pool alarm upon check in and we dispatched a man to the property within minutes. It was our impression that the matter was fixed, but of course we returned the next day and resolved the matter the next morning. The issue turned out to be a wire corroded behind a wall that was inaccessible. We do apologize for any inconvenience regarding this.

As you know we put toilet paper in all of the bathrooms, replaced the sheet that was missing off of one bed, and provided extra towels to you the next morning once we knew of these issues.

We were unaware of any issue with the dishwasher, hot tub or water heater. I don't believe you contacted us about that matter and we agree that the hot tub should have been fully operational during your stay. We have had guests in the property since your stay and the hot tub is functioning properly now so whatever the problem was seems to be short lived.

We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay at this wonderful property. The homeowner recently replaced some of the cabinetry and counters in the kitchen and is always trying to provide a good value for his guests.

All the best from the beach!

“Continuing to deteriorate”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

As another reviewer stated, the furniture and bedspreads are stained and worn. I have been here for a number of years in a row and they are the same each year. The house has good amenities (including elevator) and a good location but be prepared for a house where the furnishing make it seem older than it is. The hottub jets are on their last legs, there are only 3 sticks left for the pool table. The TVs are all old tube style TVs- no flatscreens. The wireless router even had to be rebooted multiple times to keep it working. The price for a cottage with an elevator is good, just be prepared for what goes with that low price.

Dear dasmith,

Thanks for letting us know of your feelings about Carolinian II. We apologize that the house was not to your expectations. Since we have received this review we have advised the owner of your feelings, and the bedspreads and drapes have been looked at closely and the items that needed correcting were indeed taken care of.
As you can see by the other reviews posted your experience is not the norm and we hope you come back soon to see that.

All the best from the beach!
