Steal of a price

The price is unbeatable. The place is huge with great views. Everyone I stayed with was commenting how comfortable the beds were and how soft the comforters were. The bedding was unbelievable. We were blessed with great weather. Overall we had a great stay and we would stay again.
It would not be good feedback if we did not leave areas of opportunity. First off, I read the last review and my only concern was that the pool or jacuzzi would not be operational. Well of course my luck the Jacuzzi and pool was not warm when we arrived so the pool man was called and he came out the next day. The pool man said he set the pool so warm that water evaporated and the heater stopped working. The pool man assured me this would be up and running in 24 hours, which would make the pool warm my 3rd day. Well Day 5 the pool was the same as it was and the pool man said he is only a "cleaner" and not a maintenance man and he thought he had already lost this job , which he said only made him 30 bucks a visit which he spends in gas. Meanwhile the rental agent was emailing me saying the pool man said I was satisfied and the pool was 80 degrees. I explained to the broker the pool was 60 degrees and the pool man was not being truthful. When I asked the pool man what happened to the pool being warm in 24 hours; the pool man told me it would take 3 days because this is 30k gallons. My impression since another home we visited did not have a warm pool was that these heaters break and the money is not spent to fix the heaters. The agent offered me 2 extra nights which I was not interested in since I had booked my flight and 7 days was overkill already, as I am usually ready to come home after 4-5 days anywhere. Luckily we did have a couple that extended their stay so this was acceptable.
A couple of minor issues with a TV that would not turn on that looked like it was recently installed. I did not have any issues with any updates or lack there of. I thought the decor was fine. We were able to figure everything out for the most part but I did notice some other homes have a reference book tabbed with who to call, how to work the remotes, thermostat, pool, trash, etc.. You can not beat the price. Maintaining a rental to 100% satisfaction when you are not there is near impossible especially a bigger home since there is more to go wrong. if you are considering this place, then stop thinking about it and book it before someone else does. You wont find cheaper for this size.

Owner's Response: The pool situation was resolved by keeping the water levels above the skimmer, the pool heater can not heat the water if there is no water to be heated. The tv has been replaced by a brand new plasma.
