Very nice property with a few shortfalls
Submitted: February 6, 2013
Stayed: January 2013
This property is very comfortable for a family of 4 but may present some issues for larger groups. It was presented in first class condition, very clean and comfortable and in a great location close to all the attractions of Clearwater.
Whilst the property can sleep 6-8 people, the furniture both inside and outside is more suited to 4 people ( for example the balcony and roof top only had 4 seats). Only 2 wine glasses were provided but the kitchen is otherwise well equipped
My main complaint as expressed to the owner Gia at the end of our stay was the fact that the pool is unheated and as such was not in use. Had I known this situation in advance I would have booked elsewhere.
I am sure that you would have no complaints renting this house outside of the main winter months but if you like to swim then I would go elsewhere from November to March.

Owner's Response: I was saddened to receive this review from the party of 2 that stayed in our home. George and his wife had booked our home through our VRBO/HomeAway listing, from which I have a detailed description, and 16 photographs clearly depicting the rooms, the furnishings, and size of our 2,400 sq. ft. home. The pool for our town home is mentioned on our listing as a communal pool within the list of vacation rental features. Our pool is not listed as heated, is maintained by a pool service and open for use year round. Had I been asked if the pool was heated in any communications prior to securing the reservation, I would not have hesitated to inform them that the pool was not a heated pool. And in addition, would have been more then understanding if they had decided to book a different property based on that factor.
I was happy to hear that the party of 2 felt our home “was presented in first class condition, very clean and comfortable and in a great location close to all the attractions of Clearwater”, however, very disappointed they felt it necessary to suggest in a review to potential guests that our home was not suited to a group larger then 4.
Most of our guests (many of which are repeat guests), have been larger groups that fall within our sleep capacity range of 6-8, and have been very happy and comfortable with our accommodations and furnishings. The main living area (as you can see from the photograph) is a combination dining/seating area, with 6 dining chairs, 2 bar stools, a leather convertible sofa, 2 armchairs, and an ottoman. Our rooftop terrace has a dining table, 4 dining chairs, and 2 loungers, and there is an additional table and 4 chairs on the balcony off of the main living area. Our kitchen is well stocked, including plenty of utensils, dishes and glassware. We normally have at least 6 wine glasses on had, but will occasionally need to restock due to breakage or disappearance - and I would like to extend my apologies to George and his wife for only finding 2 during their stay.
I try my best and will continue to try my best, to make our home a comfortable, convenient, and relaxing place for our guest to be. Communication is key, and I am open to answering any questions or concerns that one may have when considering our property, and open to answering any questions or concerns while they may be guests in our home.
