There was a total lack of communication. We had issues with the television. It never worked. The hot water was hit or miss. The caretaker disappeared on us. We discovered money missing from our bag. I thought maybe I hadn't put it all in the bag. There was $200.00 missing. I counted it the next day after leaving the beach house again for a few hours. $200.00 more dollars were missing. The house was locked. My guess is the caretaker took it since he had been in trying to fix the TV. Lesson learned keep your money on your person. I have rented before in Mexico. Never have I had a problem. I tried to contact Michael when we got back to the states. No response! The house is nice, but not really clean. The pool was dirty until a few of the other owners showed up. Michael needs to pay more attention to what is going on!
We rented this condo in December, for late March vacation. We arrived late Saturday night, after a long day of travel. Roger, the caretaker, met us and gave a BREIF overview of the condo and its amenities. It was late, and we were tired, so we went to bed, to start our vacation on Sunday. Air conditioning, in Mexico, is customarily room specific. The only AC in the place that worked properly was the master bedroom. Not a big problem, but kind of annoying. From my limited Spanish, I determined Michael hadn't paid the cable bill, so we had no TV. To rectify, Roger said he had to call Michael (which would prove to be done several times over the week) only to disappear till the next day. Also, we had to ask for hot water. That proved to be crapshoot. If you were washing dishes and got hot water, it was time to stop and take a shower. All week, I never took a completely warm shower.
On Monday, my wife checked her funds in one of our bags, and was missing $200. Our first thought was maybe she misplaced it. Tuesday, we were missing an additional $200. Very suspicious. I don't want to accuse anyone without proof, but it would appear Roger was the culprit, as we kept our money on our persons after that, and no more problems. Roger and we were the only ones with access to the condo.
As a three bedroom condo, capacity is figured to be six people. There aren't enough dishes for six people. The kitchen was overrun with ants. The pool is not well kept. The beach is uninviting. There were no tools to keep clean, like a broom which we bought and left. Michael needs to decide if he wants to be in the rental business or not. Get it right or get out!
He responded to the last review by claiming they were bad renters and damaged the place. We are seasoned travelers, and property renters. This isn't our first rodeo. I can only say, buyer beware! If you rent from this guy, you are in for a bad ride!
