Stayed in other rental

I was really stressed about renting from something like this site because I had never done it before. I was scared it was a scam however it was not and I loved the property and the owner was great as well. If you are going to be out most of the time and you dont require to do cooking then you will be fine with the pans provided however if you are a big family like mine was and you brought food or bought food to cook you should be aware that it is not well equiped with pots and pans. You have a noodle pot and soup pot and a pan that is big enough to fry one burger at a time at the location. I was lucky to know people in the area so I could borrow what I needed to cook with, would if you can bring crock pot, rice cooker, and large frying pan and large pitcher for kool aid etc. You should also bring your own dish soap and dish washer soap and laundry soap and bathroom cleaner and trash bags.There is a local wal mart not to far from rental and we found a dollar store close by for supplies as well. The rental itself was bright colored which was great it made everyone cheerful. The furniture was in great shape and the rental had tons of room. The owner of the rental is great and I never had any problems with him. I aslo recommed that if you are bringing a tot bring your stroller unless child is under 6 months or so because the stroller provided is very short in height and does not recline so my middle child had to push because of that fact. The pond outside was clean however there is not dumpster right next to building but its within walking distance, I say this because the kitchen trash can is rather small and reminds me of a bathroom trash can. There were always people in the complex so I would say that its more year around renters than vacation people. I never seen police at night in the area and never had a problem. I have already passed this rental to someone I know that will be going on vacation to FL as well. If you are looking for a great deal and to feel more at home this would be what I suggest. I will rent from again when we go back to FL no quesiton about it. the rental was roomy and clean upon arival. If you get the rental I had make sure to check in the upstairs bedroom closets that is where to find the high chair, stroller and play pen. My overall experince was great
Owner's Response: Hello, Lisa,
Thank you for the comment you wrote. first thing, please allow me to correct your title for this review to “Stay in this rental “not “other rental”, because you have rating my property for 5 stars, I thank you again that you also care of my injured back, you are such nice and kind guest I ever had, you keep my house clean and tidy, you asked the mop for cleaning, but my management did not answer you immediately, you was panic for looking for the high chair. I apologize all of that, also the kitchen equipments was not meet your need, those kitchen stuff bought by my management, I really do not know all the details, that was why I could not provide the list to you, I can tell if guest asked me something specifc,but I still do not know what is that for something because the culture difference, my guests came from all the world. I always told my guests that you can buy some kitchenware if the value under $30,if over $30,you have to send the quote to me for approval, keep the receipts, send it to me after your vacation, I will reimburse it for you.
I have a guest who bought a coffee maker last September, because the old one did not work good, I was happy for that, I sent the money to her right away, some guests are handy man or handy woman, they even fix something for me, I always paid them the cost for material plus a some money for coffee to show my appreciation, I am so proud I have so many good heart and nice, kind guests.
I think this is your first time using vacation home, so there was stress in the beginning, but please remember always good people more than bad people, think more positive will make you more happy and long life.
Thank you for passing this rental to your friends and I am happy to see you come back in the future, you will feel my property better than better.
Have a wonderful weekend!
