"McLain Properties failed me!"

Dear Mr and Mrs Caile,
You request for a full refund was answered during your stay with in 24 hours of your request. Your refusal to agree with the decision that was made by the owner does not consist of us ignoring your request. This property was never misrepresented online or by one our agents. You never spoke with a rental agent in our office about this property prior to booking. You took it upon yourself to book this property online with out any assistance from our office. The property is beachfront; however all properties located in Encinitas are on a bluff and generally rely on the nearest public access. Unfortunately we had no idea you booked a property prior to this and canceled because there was no beach access as this was not done through our office. If direct beach access from the home was of major concern for you had you booked this with one of our rental agents and explained what you were looking for they would have never placed you in this property; or had you contacted our office by phone or email and specifically asked if it had direct beach access from the unit prior to or during the time you reserved the unit we would have told you it did not. We do also provide full addresses as well on our website so that people may further research the area and google map the property as well to see satellite views. Due to the fact this is a nice unit and we never represented it to having beach access from the property the owner was not willing to refund your money for your stay. We apologize that you felt this was our fault and you were not satisfied with the owner's decision of a non-refund for your stay.
