Two Glorious months in paradise

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for sharing your lovely Sarasota “modern" home on Westway Drive. It was two glorious months. The location was perfect to the beach, shopping, walking about, and restaurants. And, I might add I leased it sight unseen through the VRBO listing that I found. An added plus was Giovanni, the caretaker who could not have been more helpful and accommodating to us during our stay. There wasn't anything that that we asked for that he didn't take care of during our stay.

Since I am a landlord myself I find that I am more tuned into keeping up a home and require many questions answered. Giovanni was most helpful and always concerned about keeping your home in excellent condition. It was nice not to depend on a Management Company. Looking forward to returning next season.

Second time we had the pleasure to stay at this property and again no regrets. The Property is just superb and the help from cartaker Giovanni is just great. He is there to greet and hand over the property and whenever there is something you need, he will just make it happen. The property, as last time , was in excellent condition and i have to say the Owner is very generous when it comes to providing everything you need. We spent an amazing 2 weeks there and the only negative was, that it wasnt 2 months. We will be back next year again as there is no need to look any further than this property. Thanks to all to make our stay so memorable.

Amazing Location with access to a Private Beach

  • 2 of 5
This review and my rating of 2 stars is based on our experience of staying at this property for 8 days in Early May of 2014. In my opinion as a renter and a landlord is that this property is best suited for a long term rental of greater than 1 month. This is a gorgeous home and was rented due to the proximity of the private beach and the amazing pool showcased in the photos. The beach lived up to and in fact exceeded all expectations - which I knew it would based on my knowledge of the area.

The pool however was under repair during the majority of our stay. The owners advised -- after the property was contracted -- that there might be a day or two where the pool was coming up to temperature but it would be ready for us. Unfortunately we had workers most days showing up in the private yard, putting in chemicals and attempting to get the pool to its optimum. Lots of mixed messages whether the pool was safe or not. Bottom line was that the pool was not clean and running at full capacity during one day of our entire stay. The owner is not local in the US and was getting information and updates from the contractor, pool company and the care taker. A note about the care taker, Giovanni is an awesome person and tries to be responsive, but he is not a professional care taker or firm. He is a neighbor and friend of the owner. He was empathetic about issues and advised he was doing his best - which we believe he was but in all honesty when you are renting a property of this caliber for these rates, expectations may be greater than his ability to service quickly the needs of a short term renter.
The ice maker was known to be not functioning, prior our arrival (multiple attempts to free the jam and clean ice up off the floor) Giovanni told me that it was a known issue and we had to bring in Ice -- he also informed us that it was being replaced. Also the furnishings around the pool are very old and tired and many of the chairs were either broken or in need of being replaced.
Renters should also be aware that this property may not be fully equipped with items like toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, or any laundry soap, etc. Again suited for someone staying a month or longer but when you only have a week, you really don't want to have to spend your precious time at the store shopping for home essentials.
I believe it is great for long term rental but if you are looking for a short term I would consider looking for other properties near by.

Owner's Response: Although I am told we should be very happy to have had only one complaint in the six years of renting our home it’s hard not to take it personally. As the owner I always welcome honest constructive concerns and suggestions. However, the inaccuracy of this guest’s complaint is most unfortunate.

This is our retirement home, located on what is well known to be one of he most beautiful, historic streets and neighborhoods in Sarasota. We maintain our home to the high level and standards of the community where it resides. We currently live in Europe but would rather be in Sarasota. For the time-being we have to enjoy our house vicariously through our guests – and we’ve had some wonderful experiences.

This guest requested a one week rental because his local home was being renovated. Prior to agreeing to the tenancy he was informed that we were planning a pool renovation that was expected to complete several days prior to his arrival. He accepted the rental with complete understanding of the situation. When he asked to move the dates forward by a day, I informed him that he could, but might find a partially refurbished or empty pool when he arrived. I thought I was doing him a favor, and in good faith discounted the rate to accommodate any inconvenience from the pool work.

I was surprised to hear that upon arrival he was upset about the pool. The resurfacing was complete and the pool refilled before his arrival. The guest was informed that though it looked ready there would need to be a two day curing process for the new pool surface. The pool was ready on the third day; however he felt it may have residual chemicals and chose not to use it.

Giovanni has been managing our home 6 years and has had outstanding and glowing reviews from every guest during this time. He knows every nook and cranny; greets everyone personally and organizes any special request. He's passionate about Sarasota and has lots of insights for our guests. Giovanni's reviews speak for themselves.

We provide our guests with all the needed amenities including high quality linens and bath towels, beach towels, chairs and umbrellas, bicycles, paper products, soap for all the bathrooms, hairdryers, a completely furnished kitchen, toys for the children, and a fully functioning office. We do everything we can to insure our guests are well cared for and enjoy their stay.

We are very sorry that this guest didn't enjoy our house and welcome him back to try it again in the future.

Another Memorable Stay.

  • 5 of 5
The house is very well maintained and the private beach access is fantastic. Giovanni, the house manager, is very friendly and available anytime. Beach chairs and umbrellas on site for your use, along with 4 bicycles that allow some great sight seeing opportunities. Wi-Fi and a computer with printer are available at no charge for your use. Sarasota is very bike friendly. This is our second time to vacation there and would highly recommend it for location alone. You must use at least 10-15 steps to enter the home, so it is not recommended for persons with limited mobility.

It's was a fantastic holiday experience. We are LBK regulars for 20+years so we know a thing or two about rental and the area. The property is just fantastic. Great conditions and I m thinking of asking the owner to put me on the waiting list to buy it, if he ever decides to sell it. We were expected from the person that looks after the property locally. Easy and very kind hand over and support in case you need something during your stay. Property is awesome, great location and I just could go on and on maybe I shouldn't write this review to keep it a secret but I m already sorting out my 2014 diary to be sure I have another chance to be there
