As a one-time resident of Downtown Melbourne, I know first-hand the joys of the quaint area. The Downtown District is host to Friday Family Fest (2nd Friday each month), Fall Art Festival (Nov.), FIT Homecoming (Oct.), Candlelight Holiday Shopping (Nov./Dec.) and other events such as car shows, farmers market and the Sip & Stroll event this April.
Also, the District is home to the areas best restaurants, specialty shops, and night-spots.
In candor, our stay was not to the standard we have always had before from AirBnB. When we arrived for an 8-day stay, the condo was dirty -- the floor so dirty it made our bare feet black. Glass-top tables were smeared, microwave door greasy. We had no bath soap, no tissues, only 1/4 of a roll of toilet paper, enough dishwasher detergent for possibly one or two uses. We were unable to operate the TV (it's rather quirky) and couldn't lower the window blinds. Karen was apparently out of town for the week-end, so we spent two nights before she came to lower the blinds, fix the TV and bring the housecleaners back. The condo itself is on a beautiful marina with lovely views. It is minutes from the airport and beaches. I would hope this was a unique experience.
I am glad to hear that you have had great experiences in general with Airbnb stays and sorry to hear this was not a good one for you. No doubt the cleaning crew dropped the ball and their is no excuse for that.
Please know that every effort was taken to mediate all of this once it was brought to my attention. The cleaning crew came back and re-cleaned all the areas you mentioned, additional toilet paper was taken from the storage bin, in addition to the dish soap that was there a new bag of pods was provided, you were given access to additional bath towels when asked, the TV was re-programmed (trouble shooting directions are also provided in the condo), the light bulb on the porch was replaced after it broke when you tried to screw it in, a shower mat was provided (although we now have a damaged tub due to the suction cups) but I understand the need for a shower mat and for the window blinds, we figured out simply turning the wand would allow you to lower them (they were never broken, sorry I couldn't get there sooner to show you this).
Again, I apologize you did not have a good experience, this was certainly not a reflection of the standard we upkeep and one we will try very hard to not let happen again. Also, thanks so much for the recommendation for little soaps and lotions. We once provided them and no one ever used them but we have now started to provide them again (it is a great added touch).
The condo was great and clean. The whole place was updated and perfect for us and our dogs. Check-in was easy and we enjoyed the recommendation of The Mansion for dinner!
We received all the information that we needed from Karen before arriving. I was pleased and surprised to see how well the kitchen was stocked, how clean everything was, and the decor and view were lovely. The harbor and causeway area are full of bird life and dolphin viewing and it is so close to walk into the delightful Melbourne center district with its many shops and restaurants. Unfortunately it was a little too cool for us when we were there to take advantage of the pool but there was so much else to do that it didn't matter.
Nice condo, fully equipped, we had some issues with the keypad number at the door (we forgot the number), but karen was available at the phone and helped us out, positive feedback!
Loved our stay at this apartment! Cozy & with all the right extras - Karen really thought of all the "Florida Beach Vacation" details when listing this place on AirBnB, like coolers and beach chairs and cold water in the fridge for when we return.
The place was exactly as described, very clean, and very well situated.
Thanks so much for having us!
