I want to start by saying the property we stayed in was just lovely. Well appointed, great beds, luxury property-100 percent. However, the management company managing the property was a disaster. Issues started day one. Received a email about arriving to the property. The only issue.... when it had the section “Getting into the property” it was left blank. No lockbox number or entry instructions to the house. Called the 800 Vacasa number was on hold 30 minutes then got disconnected Strike One. Found a local Kiawah number then
Got through at 455 pm just five minutes
Prior to closing. They stated the property wasn’t ready yet. I stated that can’t be right as check in time is 4 pm and we have been driving for seven
Hours. Need to check in now, they stated property wasn’t cleaned but they were on the way. House wasn’t ready until
630 strike two. I also ask them how to get into the house they put me on hold for 10 minutes and the girl came back and said she “thinks “the Lockbox code is xxxx but isn’t sure. Strike 3 -Ok I stated if it’s not where do I call, she told
Me to call the 800 number - I told her I had held
For thirty minutes and got disconnected. She informed that’s common and just to keep calling and trying. Strike 4.
Once inside the home- it was just lovely with one exception. Remote in living room didn’t work. Received a text from Vacasa stating if we needed anything to text a number. Well I texted at 820 am and got
A response at 430 that afternoon. Stating they were sorry they just saw the message.....Strike 5. They told me they would have someone call us. A lovely and helpful
Woman named Jill called profusely apologized and tried to walk us through a fix, even went as far as calling the owners to trouble shoot. She did inform that getting a
Maintenance person to the property could take a day or
Two due
To
Covid which we understand.The tv remote still didn’t work great but worked better. The one in the bedroom
Was not working correct as well, so we just gave up and decided to forgo the aggravation of dealing with the Mgmt company. If I were the owners I would get this beautiful property out of the hands of Vacasa and let a luxury Mgmt company handle. People paying the amount of money to rent a luxury property such as this one will have little to no tolerance for the terrible
Service of Vacasa. Really loved the property but the Mgmt company turned a great property and vacation a bit sour.
Manager response:
We sincerely apologize your stay was so negatively impacted by us being short-staffed due to COVID-19. We are working as quickly as we can on the phone and in the field to keep up with our guests and certainly look forward to being back to fully staffed very soon. We hope to have a chance to impress you again in the future!

176 Governors Drive was a home away from home for a gathering of friends for R&R. The house itself was comfortable, beautifully furnished and designed, immaculately clean, and very conveniently located for our beach walks and explorations by car. We had a wonderful time largely thanks to the comforts of the house.

It was a sibling and spouse get together for us , four siblings and spouses and the house was perfect. The 4 suites were perfect, the living and dining areas had everything we needed and the kitchen was perfect. All of like to cook and the kitchen has everything you could want. We are planning a return trip to this property.

This was a wonderful vacation rental. I really enjoyed staying in the home. The home is very luxurious. Great kitchen for preparing meals and beautiful porches front and back to enjoy the warmer days. Plenty of room for games or puzzles and dining. I loved this home. Very relaxing great place for groups or a well mannered family. (Hopefully they will light up the steps for the evenings.)

Wonderful girls trip for a wedding weekend. We had the best time on this lovely island. This house was spectacular with absolutely everything you could need. I am quite positive this home was professionally decorated as it was beyond beautiful. Would recommend this home to anyone wanted the very best!! Also, Vacasa was top notch to deal with and exceeded our needs. Thank you!!

A beautiful, well-stocked home with a very comfortable vibe. The porch was glorious. The folks at Vacasa could not have been more helpful.

Beautifully decorated home with all the amenities. We felt right at home with all the kitchen utensils, the artwork, and the excellent reading material thoughtfully placed throughout the home. With two kids under the age of two to take care of , I don’t get to read much anymore but just perusing the book titles while I rocked a baby to sleep was entertaining. We loved the location and can’t wait to come back when the kids are older.

The views from the home, including the enormous wrap around porch, are absolutely beautiful. The inside layout and furnishings are simply gorgeous. The beds are incredibly comfortable. There are just not enough superlatives to adequately describe this home. Additionally, this was our first time dealing with Vacasa, and our experience was very positive. We will definitely return.
