Thanksgiving of 2022 we rented from Brinkley Beach Realty. The heat did not work in the lower section of the house the entire week. First night the rooms were in the forties. We had no internet or TV all week. Could not watch the Macys parade or football. ABSOLUTELY no help from the realty company. Nothing they could do. The owners were not answering their phone. They have ignored all of my messages since Thanksgiving. I received one reply initially saying they were sorry that they did not live up to my expectations. We have been renting in the banks for over 30 years and I never had issues like this. Twiddy and Southern Shores have always taken care of us.

Sound Front home rental for a week. We lasted 3.5 days. Pool had a major leak only being kept full by the garden house running wide open. AC did work, we were told to open the windows. No screens on the windows (lots of bugs). We were told this was a pet free home, wife is allergic to cats. Turns out owner had 3 cats as pets that lived in the first floor owners rooms. Washer hose broke on day 2 while we were at the beach (it was not being used). Came back to two inches of water on the first floor. Realtor sent over a cleaning crew to clean up the water, they were there for 6 hours. About those cats.... I noticed some bits on my legs..... then I noticed some tiny black specs on the floor of the bathroom jumping around. Turns out the whole house was infested with fleas. Myself, wife and 1 yo old had flea bits. Realtor offered to put us up at a hotel for one night until they get fumigate the house. I said are your freaking kidding me? We ask for a full refund and then said no. We packed up and left at 9pm, drive thru the night with a crying 1 yo old. Our clothes and van had fleas everywhere. Nothing like stripping naked and leaving all of your belongings on your driveway at 4am and cleaning up outside because you don't want to bring the fleas into your house. I spent that day taking our clothes to the laundry mat, had to get the car fumigated.......
My wife wrote a long very elegant letter to CD..... we got our full amount on the rental back
THAT was the worst vacation rental
