We were extremely disappointed in this home as compared to other properties we have rented over the years. The property is not well maintained: many light fixtures either didn't work or required new bulbs, kitchen not well stocked- no paper towels, no hand soap, no dish soap, very little dishwasher detergent, no kitchen trash bags, glassware was in very poor condition. The ice maker did not work. The floors and rugs throughout the house were dirty. The family room sofa was very old and uncomfortable. The pool area was not clean. The landscaping around the pool was overgrown with weeds and the gazebo was in major disrepair. The pool itself had damaged and missing tiles and vegetation was growing where tiles were missing at the spa. There were some good points as well: Air conditioning system and pool equipment worked very well, location is excellent and close to village and beach, pool area is very private and pool water was well maintained, good supply of linens and towels, master bed was comfortable, no sign of any bugs in the house (not uncommon in Florida). The house could be made much more appealing with very little effort.
This house is great. We were 6 adults and three two year old boys. We had hoped that the room with the bunk beds was bigger and we could have put a couple of pack n plays in there, but I guess we didn't pay enough attention to that, so we ended up not using that room at all. The furnishings were comfortable, although some of the chairs around the pool had some wear and tear and some hardware had worn through the material so they probably need to be replaced soon. They have toys for the pool and plenty of shade for some very fair skinned little boys...and their parents. There is a large fridge and a small fridge for adult beverages perhaps. The kitchen is very nice, although a little narrow. Everything was very clean on arrival and the location couldn't be better. A short walk to Olafs for ice cream or the beach for sand castle building. There is a charcoal grill which served our needs well and there is a hot tub, but it does not work. This worked out really well for us as we used it as a kiddy pool.
I did not know what to expect having rented this off the internet. I have been as unsuccessfull as I have successful doing this. Even though it is our first day I felt impelled to review this rental house. It is a VERY nice size house. There are 7 adults in my party and we have so much room. The house was clean upon arrival which is nice. The pool had been cleaned but I will say it appears to have some wear and tear with tiles missing and because the yard is full of trees, alot of leaves etc. fall into the pool. But hey, we have our own private pool/gathering place. I have yet to figure out the outdoor lighting. It seems only two are currenly working. Location, location,location!! Short walk to the beach and easy walk to the village so you don't need a car. The public beach is only about a 3-5 minute walk but why do that when you have direct access a block away.
Back to the house, plenty of beds, bathrooms and living space you just can't go wrong with a large group. Someone on another review complained about the furniture showing wear but I think it is just fine. I have seen much worse. The appliaces are clean and nice as well. All in all, there are tiny, itty bitty things, but great house, great location, definately recommend.
We recently stayed at this house and the location is great. You are very close to the village and the beach as well. The location is quite as well. The house accommodated our family of 6 adults well with enough room so that we never felt we were on top of each other. However, the house is quite dated. The furniture in the living room, den and dining room were good and not too worn however the bedroom furniture did show a lot of wear with scratches. The kitchen has your basics but is not overly stocked with a lot of extras. The duct work for the A/C has some issues and our rental company was prompt to send someone out; consequently we were given to portable A/C units to help with the issues. The issues are primarily in the bedroom with the 3 twin beds and the bedroom with bunk beds; both rooms got pretty warm and comfortable to sleep in. The bunk bed room also has no TV and no closet and the bottom bed slants/leans so it could be uncomfortable for someone. The pool area is surround by a lot of trees and therefore you get along of leaves, flowers, etc. in the pool daily and you have to scoop them out before swimming each time. The cleaning company that is used does a fair job cleaning; just the basics so a lot of dust on blinds, ceiling fans, lamps, light fixtures, shelves, etc. On the day of our arrival the pool area was pretty untidy. There is a lot of outside lighting which does not work and there is no indication as to how to turn them on. There is also outdoor speakers but here again they do not work.
For some these may be minor issues/concerns but considering that our family rents each summer one week normally somewhere on the gulf coast of FL our experiences have given us properties much nicer than this.
My wife and 4 boys, and my wife's sister, her husband, and their 3 boys all stayed in this vacation home for a week. We had an absolute great time! The house is made for gatherings like this. The two main indoor gathering spaces were perfect for our family, the bedrooms were comfortable, and the pool area was greatly enjoyed by all 7 of our boys as well as the 4 adults!! We never had to move our cars for anything once there, the village and beach are both walking distance. Speaking of the beach... wow! This will be our vacation destination for years to come. I fully expect to use this house again, I just hope it is available! My only negative at all is that we couldn't get the TV in the master bedroom working, but honestly, we didn't need it. The TV in both main gathering spaces worked fine. And besides, we didn't come to watch TV! All in all, an excellent vacation home! Thank you, home owners, for sharing your home with my family! Blessings!!!
