Achilles Sun DogAchilles Sun Dog, Grand Isle Review

Dirty, Smelly, Ants, and Poo – These are just a few words I’ll use to describe our stay here at the Achilles Sun Dog in Grand Isle, Louisiana.

Run by Century 21 Island Realty, Achilles Sun Dog left a lot to be desired. The photos on their website do not even compare to what the home looks like in person, which is extremely misleading. The house is in deplorable condition with several safety hazards and an overall dysfunctional cleaning crew. As bad as some of the conditions are, I’m surprised no one has gotten seriously injured.

Starting with some of the most serious complaints: Cleanliness

On our first day of arrival there were fleas on the floor and a smelly, overflowing cigarette depository on the balcony. I called Century 21 and they sent a cleaning lady who proceeded to dump the cigarette container over the balcony and onto the grass below. This left a residual stench surrounding the area until it rained a few days later. It also left hundreds of cigarette butts and miscellaneous trash on the yard to be cut by the lawn mower.

The entrance was filthy dirty. Just a precursor of what was to come.

On the inside of the house things didn’t get any better. The bathroom had feces blown on the wall behind the toilet and seems to have been there for quite sometime.

The bathroom sink was also dirty.

One of the windows leaks, so this is their repair:

Ants were a major issue. They infiltrated most of our food which made it very frustrating to enjoy a sandwich. In fact, they were so bad at one point, we had to purchase all new food and seal it in tupperware containers.

The next major issue is the condition of the house and its belongings. Paint chipping, electrical outlets could easily be pulled out of the walls, every piece of home decor was broken, the sofa bed/couch was filthy, and then the rotten wood…

And then the decor and other broken misc. things:

There are so many things wrong with this place, I can’t even list them all.  I took nearly 100 pictures and each one is a different issue. For as much as they are asking a night (nearly $350) there is no reason why they can’t maintain it properly. Responsibility falls on Century 21 Island Realty, not the cleaning crew, to oversee the condition of the properties they are ultimately profiting from. Especially when they are only a few camps away…

I wish there had been a review online for me to read before booking this location. I would have never subjected my young children to this had I known. Unfortunately, the only source I had to go by was the Century 21 Island Realty website that provided completely false or very misleading information.

Hopefully this review helps someone before wasting their hard earned money on this dump.
