We spent a week here over the Holiday period after our rental in Naples fell through. The house is spacious and in a great location for the St. Pete's area, unfortunately these are the only positive things about the house. Upon arrival we found the house not as clean as we would have expected and spent over 2 hours sweeping and wiping down surfaces, there was still trash left in the compactor from the previous guests who had been there 2 months prior. The house is very dated and in desperate need of some TLC. The furniture in the downstairs bedrooms was coming apart and the furniture in the upstairs bedroom looked like it was taken from Liberace's house. The toilets in all three bathrooms would constantly block, good job there was a plunger by the side of them. The shower areas were in need of a good deep clean, one of the showers leaked, soaking all the bathroom floor and bath mats. The pool was a nice addition to the house, just a shame it hadn't been warmed up prior to our arrival. The rental agent did send out the pool guy to us as we had some questions on how to use the pool heater, he was great and set the pool to maximum temperature and took the timer off - something that I feel should have been in the instructions to renters for the colder months. The pool took about 2 days to heat up, which was a big disappointment for the kids. The pool area could also have benefited from being power washed, the furniture was dirty and the plants around the pool also needed a good trim. We made comments on our renter's checklist about our concerns and the cleaning lady called round and offered to clean the house, thanks but no thanks we are already in the middle of our vacation and don't particularly want to deal with this when we are on vacation. The owners of the house really need to spend some money on their property or lower the rent significantly, it's not what I would class as a "Luxury" rental. We've rented many properties from VRBO and this was by far the worst, unfortunately you can't really do much about it once you are already there so take my advice and spend your money elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Response: The only thing we can say is, "you just can't please everyone"!! We always strive to keep our property in excellent condition. Houses such as this are constantly being repainted (done last year), renovated and refurnished (wood floors redone and new living room furniture also 2013). Nevertheless, Florida has an extremely harsh climate resulting in a lot of wear and tear and it is simply impossible to keep every nook and cranny in brand new condition.

We made special arrangements for these people to pick up their keys because they wanted to arrive on Christmas Day. We explained and they agreed that we would call them the day after Christmas to see how they were doing and make sure everything was OK. Meanwhile they had our Rental Agent's phone number if they needed anything on Christmas.

As to the cleaning, they were told to call the Rental Agent if things were not up to par, and the cleaning people would be sent back if they had missed anything; they did not call. When we did talk to them the next day, and asked specifically if everything was OK, we were told yes.

They called early the next day to say that something was wrong with the pool. We called the pool guy who arrived in a timely manner to find out that they had not set the dials according to the instructions they were given upon arrival. The pool is heated by a heat pump which by design cannot generate heat above 50F, a temperature that we frequently get at night in the winter, even in Florida. Then it is often impossible to heat the pool to an acceptable level. That is a fact of physics. Furthermore, heating a private pool this large is extremely costly (and thereby un-ecological) process. We do provide a heated pool to allow our guests to enjoy the pool in the winter, but it does take time to heat up if we are having an unusual cold week.

We always address the concerns of our guests, and quite frankly think that this guest's complaints are unfounded. We welcome our guests to satisfy any concerns they have and are always available to answer any questions before and after they arrive.
