Florida Vacation Fisherman’s Cottage Rental Review, Part 5

broken door on refrigerator
Annoying Broken Handle on the Fridge

After dealing with the horrible water, among other things (broken fridge door handle, etc.), at our Florida rental home I couldn’t wait to contact Great Ocean Condos and let them know how unhappy we were. I didn’t take my computer on vacation – I don’t work while I am on break, but the first time we went back to my son’s house to do laundry I used his computer to shoot a letter to the rental agency, and I told them how disgusting I thought the place was. They ended up refunding $75 to my credit card. That’s it! For putting up with lousy water a week. And we left a day early because of it.  Fortunately I had some place else to go – my son’s house.

dirty rusted coffee pot
Let’s have coffee…. maybe not.

My past two posts have been about the ♦bad water and ♦nasty boat house at the Fisherman’s Intracoastal Cottage we rented this past June. It is located in New Smyrna Beach on the east coast of Florida – right along the waterway, which would ordinarily be a fabulous place to stay. Trouble with the water in the house should definitely have been made clear up front, and it wasn’t. In fact, why agree to rent a place at all that has such a drastic problem? And I do consider horrid water to be a BIG problem. We couldn’t drink it, cook with it, or wash clothes in it. It turned everything yukky – like the coffee pot we found in the kitchen. Seriously? You expect me to make coffee in that? Continue reading “Florida Vacation Rental: Fisherman’s ICW Cottage, Part 3”
