seven weeks in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Joan and I have stayed here for 3 years. In that time we have found Brian to be friendly, accessible, and willing to do what is necessary to insure a pleasant stay. We stayed here for 7 weeks this time. The unit was clean. the appliances all worked, and there were plenty of beach towels and beach chairs provided. The unit is 5 minutes from the United States best beach. We could not have asked for more from the owner or the unit. We also have two dogs and they are welcomed here which is different from most places on Siesta Key.

Owner's Response: Joan and Ron, are very kind. We are always happy to have them as guests and the years go so fast . I know they anticipate their return from the moment of their departure, extending the stay, year on year. I look forward to welcoming them in 2016 !

Absolutely Awful--We left after one night!

  • 1 of 5

My wife and I arrived to find the unit filthy--unmade bed, sink full of dishes, leaking appliances, balcony planter filled with cigarette butts and so much hair on the bathroom floor it resembled a shag carpet. The owner, Brian O' Donnell, was out of the country and had made no arrangements for property management nor did he return our calls or texts for nearly 48 hours. When he did, he was hostile and threatening. We met another family who also had problems--Brian hadn't returned their calls for FOUR days. Check the dates of the other reviews of this unit and note that none of them were posted after 2013. Maybe it was under different ownership. Booking it now would be a huge mistake. After months of negotiating with VRBO, we received a full refund but it still ruined our holiday. We've rented online dozens of times with great results--learn from our mistake and choose from the many better alternatives.

Owner's Response: Well !! I normally would be diplomatic and take the policy of the customer is always right .. Alas this time it would be grossly negligent of me. There was a very simple explanation to this fiasco. Our cleaner got her schedule mixed up and did NOT ' do a change over ' I was indeed, sadly unavailable, when the renter tried to contact me ( 30th of December ) I was on a twelve hour flight and with a five hour time difference and my phone on airplane mode, impossible to reach. As soon as I got the renters message, I contacted, apologized profusely, said I would immediately send the cleaner, could not understand the condition they found it ( the renter did not say about the unmade bed or I would have guessed ! ) They did not want that. I also said I would refund that nights stay and cleaning fee, as they said they had tidied up, they wanted more. I was left with the impression they saw an opportunity to have a free vacation, through a human error. I suggested, if they were unhappy and wished to leave at that point, I would refund them FULLY, they said they were not leaving and would have their credit card company/attorneys deal with getting a refund, meanwhile staying. They agreed to a refund of two days and they'd stay. I asked that they confirm this in writing, they did. ONLY to phone later and say they were leaving. The refund was issued days later, the mechanism/logistics of credit card transactions, I have no control over. The renter had in fact, only made one payment of 50% .. having mistakenly paid the second payment first and not paying the first one AT ALL. THIS may be the reason VRBO had a problem with the refund !! I have no problem with a guests right to review, however this particular one is not an accurate assessment of the apartment. Just for the record, I have owned this house for sixteen years, the current renters are here at the moment, for a period of seven weeks, were there last year for the same time, are already booked for 2016 for NINE weeks. I do not solicit reviews, leaving it completely to people to write or not. The pictures of the apartment contain no airbrushing. The unit received a COMPLETE remodel in 2013 and is a DELIGHT. Simple case of an oversight on our cleaners part that in my opinion, was seen as an opportunity .....

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This rental exceeded our expectations. Located minutes from Tamiami Trail with its various stores and restaurants but only minutes from the beach. The beach, a five minute walk from door to actual foot in water, was aboslutely beautiful, spacious and quiet. For more activities, walk on the beach for 10-15 minutes to the public beach. This apartment is well appointed and has been completely renovated and pleasantly decorated. Extremely clean and well stocked to meet any need from beach umbrella and chairs to flat screen, laundry detergent, toilet paper, grill, etc. The king size bed was very comfortable. This was a great find and we could not have been happier. It made our stay so much more enjoyable and really felt like this was my home away from home. We drove to Sarasota for dinner at El Grecos which served wonderful authentic greek cuisine. Closer by we dinned at Isan Thai Restaurant and were pleasantly surprised at their authentic home cooked fare, excellent. Brian was exceptional. He attended to all of our needs. Will return for sure and would highly recommend this apartment.

Kid Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and large space, especially for a one bedroom. Two queen size sleeper couches, and queen in bedroom made easy sleeping arrangements for our large family of 5 children! Large kitchen with fullsize W/D also very handy. Within 150 feet of the beautiful private beach, and safe enough to feel comfortable with the kids playing alone. This house is one of the few free standing buildings with a great 2nd level patio to perch on. Many of the neighboring buildings shared walls and only had street level patios, and we were very happy to be above the foot trafic. Close enough to the main strip to walk to the shopping and restaurants but removed enough to not be overwhelmed by other travelers. I would highly reccommend this property! Very nice furnishings, but not to the point we were scared to live in it!
