Trip Report Eleuthera Rental: Pebbles at On the Rocks

Jump to last reply

We love Eleuthera. It is a wonderful island and we have stayed at a number of places on the island. We decided to rent Pebbles after finding it listed online. The pictures on the listing looked great, so we booked our stay in April 2010 from Patricia Leigh-Wood. We rented the unit for approximated $200 a night. What a mistake. After we arrived we quickly found what was not clear from the pictures. Pebbles is dirty. Pebbles is not well maintained.
There were a number of things that made the unit uninhabitable. The rugs on the floor had mites/bugs in them that kept biting us all night. There were electrical problems.
When we got in bed, the sheets had bugs in them that were crawling all over us. Usually, landlords ensure their rental unit has either functioning screens or proper doors that prevent bugs from entering. The screens and doors were all in terrible shape and would not keep anything out. After barely sleeping and realizing that nothing would be done, we left. We scrambled to find another place to stay last minute to try and salvage our vacation. This meant paying twice for the week. The owners refused to provide any compensation and told us they see nothing wrong with the unit.
Stay away from Pebbles or On the Rocks in Eleuthera.
