Harry Johnson Jr. MIAMI Home Away, Flipkey, Vacation Home Rentals Shady Realtor (LaGorce St. Vacation Home) Miami Florida
We booked Mr. Johnson's vacation rental home back in April of this year for our upcoming trip on 8/1/13. About 2 weeks ago the curious bug in me prompted me to go back to the Home Away website and look up the property to start planning for our trip and to my dissappointment there were many negative reviews on the property located on La Gorce Street in Miami Florida. I quickly emailed Mr. Johnson and left several voice mail messages and he didn't get back to me till a few days later. I expressed to him that I was overly concerned given our trip was 3 weeks away and the negative reviews mentioned that the home had mold, leaky roof, plumbing issues and a non-operable hot tub (this was the main reason we booked this home). He confirmed that the home needed a lot of work and attempted to convince us to stay anyway. He claimed that the reason he had not attempted to fix any of the issues was because it was too costly and the property HAD BEEN SOLD!!!! The new owners aren't expected to move in until later in August 2013 therefore according to him we could still stay there. [continued below]....
Needless to say we aske him for a full refund which he did a few days later. We managed to book another property and are expecting to have a stress free vacation. I am so thankful for the reviewers because if it wasn't for them we would have been stuck at this horrible property. I looked up the property today 7/16/13 and he lowered the rates for booking this property to fool more people before the property is officially out of his hands. This is the reason why I am writing this review and hope it avoids someone the huge pain from dealing with a realtor of this magnitude. So PLEASE PLEASE stay away from booking any of his properties. Avoid yourself a huge headache and book elsewhere.
