Awesome views, the house itself is incredible… breathtaking!!
Roy B. Sep 2022
The house needs some work. The house is an older one yes, BUT it had black mold inside the vents and around various places on ceiling. One bathroom upstairs paint and ceiling repairs needed and coming down. There is no place to sit on the lower level other than bedrooms, outside shower needs fixed, some porches didn't have any chairs. No hose under the house to wash down. VERY Disappointed

We have been renting this house for years. It is the best location in Avon, but it needs some repairs. There are water stains on the ceilings, the floor is rotted in the dining room, and the shower drain in the downstairs room needs to be fixed. The outside lights need new bulbs and to be fixed as the pool was in complete darkness which was never the case before.
Manager response:
Christopher, thank you for sharing your feedback and bringing these issues to our attention, we apologize for any inconvenience. Your feedback has been passed to the local maintenance team to address further. We look forward to hosting you for a great stay in the future!

Great location for those who love quiet places; sunsets were breathtaking and the surrounding marshes gorgeous. House is spacious with good amenities for those who like to cook. Pool and pool table were nice to have

The cleaning was not on point. If you are a clean freak this might not be your dream vacation place. We rated the cleaning as a 2/5 for various reasons. We recleaned surfaces and washed covertlets upon arrival to make ourselves comfortable. Vacasa did have a maintenance person come out to deal with the mold around the air vents vents. The house as a whole needs a little attention do to weather and large amounts of use but is great for a bunch of people.
The rental does not provide any beach chairs or extras for the beach. Outside seating for individual decks is very limited.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Anita. We apologize for the cleanliness issues you had while in the home. We appreciate you reaching out for assistance and we have made sure to inform housekeeping of areas to improve on. Our hope is to host you again soon in the near future!

The location is beautiful but the house needs a lot of maintenance. There was a lot of mold around the vents. Many of the bar stool chairs are broken and unsafe to sit in. One of the bathrooms has a ceiling that is leaking water. We paid for pool heat and never received it.
Manager response:

We will follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience to discuss preventative measures and ensure the pool heating and other maintenance issues won't happen again in the future. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have a chance to host you next time.

The view from the home was spectacular along with the pool, clean and refreshing. The home is spacious and fun was had by all. The house was not described as stated, no king beds or ability to put together, double beds with king frames. Not able to push beds together for queen or king bed. I called on Monday about the WIFI and mold issues. The gentleman who came out for the WiFi was extremely professional and was able to correct the problem. Mold issue was never addressed, called again on Friday to inform about mold again and to let them know the front door lock was not functioning properly. It seems like mold has been an issue for some time. The kitchen counters were not cleaned and dust was evident throughout. The walls and ceilings all had black mold. It looked as though every window in the house was leaking. We have been coming here for 20 years and never had this type of issue with a rental. Not worth the $10k you pay for the week. Disappointed at Beautiful Sound!
Manager response:
We are delighted to read you enjoyed the view and had a great time, though we are sorry to read you found some disappointments. The mildew is getting cleaned by housekeeping, and the black spots from old leaks will be painted during the off season. The windows will be addressed at that time as well. Thank you for letting us know how we can improve.

The view and size of the home was great. The outside space was wonderful. The advertisement for the home was a little misleading. It advertises two king beds but they were really two twins pushed together with a king base. The problem with that was we had children sleeping with their parents and they would fall in the crack of the bed. Another reason we felt it was misleading it talked about water sports but nothing was at the house. I think the advertisement should state you would need to rent anything you needed.
The house was large and had plenty of space but it only had a very small outside grill to grill for all the people that could stay there. It took forever to grill a meal for everyone.
We had multiple issues with the house. There was black mold everywhere, bathrooms, walls and curtains in bedrooms and flooring in kitchen area. The black mold was so bad in one of the bathrooms we had to move everyone out of the room. The shower head and the bathtub were full of mold and when you went to take a bath there were black floating mold in the tub and if you took a shower black mold was falling out of the shower head.
It did rain while we were there and one of the downstairs bathrooms with all the mold ceiling leaked. It was so bad it ran on the carpet in the bedroom. The kitchen windows leaked so we had to put towels down. We did contact the reality company. They responded fast and sent out a person to fix the repairs. His first response when we showed him all the stuff was that the air conditioning was sweating because it was so hot. Not sure what that had to do with the leak in the bathroom or the kitchen but eventually it stopped raining and the problem fixed itself.
There was also a running toilet that he did fix while onsite.
With the beautiful view and size of the home, would I recommend it, most likely not. We paid right at $10,000 for the week to stay there. That’s a lot of money for what we got. There are so many nicer homes out there to rent, I think I’d try another one instead.
Manager response:
Thank you for letting us know how we can improve, Theresa. Guest feedback is very important and valued so we can help each guest have the best vacation possible. We apologize for the error on the listing and have ensured it is corrected. The mildew is being taken care of by housekeeping; the growth happens very quickly due to the extreme heat and humidity we are experiencing, and we will do better to stay on top of it. Hopefully we'll have a chance to host you in the future!

Lovely home situated on the sound side with gorgeous sunsets. Home is modern and big and can comfortably fit a large group.
Wendy L. Apr 2021
Perfect setting for sunsets, accessing the sound for watersports, and general vacationing. We loved how easy it was to be at the water’s edge. The house is well equipped and the upper loft was a perfect place to enjoy the morning sun and a cup of coffee. We’d definitely stay there again.
