Vacasa- We have rented every year at Summer House for many years consecutively. Until this year, all condos had been rented through Kaiser realty which was bought by Vacasa recently. So, this year we decided to go through Vacasa. Customer service is NOT GOOD. If you call their main line, you will be told (paraphrasing) that the wait time for a rep is 30 min (on two occasions) and over 2 hours (on another two occasions). Condo was not clean (we cleaned it ourselves after not being able to get in touch with customer service upon check-in), dining room table had a large glass top that was broken on the edge (literally broken and the glass piece just sitting there). After I cut two of my fingers on it, I went out to buy packaging tape just to tape the broken piece so my kids would not hurt themselves. All three bedroom closet mirrors on the doors had cracks in the glass mirror and one of the door mirrors was completely detached from the door frame. The ceiling had a water leak at some point in one of the bedrooms and was never repaired leading to a mildewed/molded residue on the ceiling. After multiple calls to customer service (both locally and the corporate #), I was told maintenance was unavailable on Sunday (the day we checked in and discovered all this) and would be out first thing Monday morning. After no one showed up Monday, I called back and they finally came out and removed the glass table top and closet door on Tuesday. It's clear no one inspected this condo prior to our check-in on 6/14/20. We were left to deal with whatever issues presented themselves (even the safety concerns) until almost 72 hours into our trip. Furthermore, as mentioned above, we stay at Summer House every year. We pay roughly the same each year for 7 nights. This year was on par with the rest costing almost $3,200. Unfortunately, the condo this year was not on par with the other condos we have rented in past years. I would be cautious renting from Vacasa. As a large company it doesn't appear they can handle the business they have and are willing to leave safety concerns on the back burner for days at a time. For those that read this and say there were pics of the condo, you are correct. But none of the issues we encountered were seen in any of the pictures posted. At absolute most, this unit is worth $2,000/week during peak season. $3,200 for broken glass, broken closet doors, mildew/molded ceiling areas, dirty floors, stained couch cushions and curtains, etc. is extremely frustrating to me. Unfortunately, we spent some time looking elsewhere for our next condo rental. This year, Summer House and Vacasa really left a bad taste in our mouths with unit 306A. I have pictures of all the issues noted but cannot attach to this review. Ultimately, I do not recommend this unit and advise caution when dealing with Vacasa.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Mike! We appreciate your feedback and truly apologize for the issues you encountered during the peak of the pandemic. We are pleased to note that we have added plenty of additional staff with virtually no phone wait times. The glass has been removed from the dining room table, the home has been professionally deep cleaned, and maintenance issues have been addressed. Thanks again and we hope to get the chance to impress you in the future.

The balcony on this end unit was outstanding. Beautiful view!

Great location, floor, balcony and amenities. Could have been cleaner and cleaned on time, we arrived around 430 of our check in day with the cleaning crew still there, we waited in the den for 20-30 min before what looked like mgmt asked us to politely leave so they could finish up, we went to get groceries and they were gone when we returned. The cleaning looked like it was rushed.
Manager response:
Ryan, thank you for your feedback following your stay. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced due to our housekeepers running behind schedule. We appreciate your patience as they completed the clean, though we are sorry it looked as though they were rushed. We have passed your comments along to our local manager who will follow-up with the housekeepers to ensure the units are cleaned and ready for check-in. We hope we have the opportunity to host you again in the future.

Loved it

It wasn’t as clean as it’s been in the past. There was no mop to mop the floors
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world class service.

The beach was good. Condo had everything we needed

Condo had everything we needed for great week. This is petty, but the comforters on the bed are so heavy and were uncomfortable to sleep under. Nice but not comfortable.
