Beautiful house with disappointing but (part 2)

  • 3 of 5
The electricity bill was around 90 $ with a 40$ allowance that piece was not bad knowing being from Europe we only used the air conditioning
During two evenings out of the 11 days so expect a steeper bill if you use it normally. We were surprised to see the first day where we got in at 4 pm and last day of the rental
where we left at 11 am charged a full day electric bill, so glad to have paid for the next rental electricity bill, just leaves sour taste upon return home.
Hope you don’t mind being woken up by the sprinkler system early morning several days during the week as this was a lovely bonus and paying for it.
Finally, for the boat we were told we were 30 to 35 minutes from the Gulf, well the reality is that the house with the slow speed requirements on the canal and the channel is more like 1 hour if not more but we got used to that (exactly like previously stated in another comment).
So great house spacious, modern, tastefully decorated, just be ready to be taken advantage of upon deposit return like it seems a few customer did and as long as a clean house and high hygiene is not expected you should be fine.

Owner's Response: Villazo Ann comes with a smart electricity meter and the renter is charged what this meter collects, there is no discussion possible. We forward the meter readings and a graph. The house rental agreement comes with a $25/week free electricity allowance which normally covers the electrical expenses. Some people leave windows and doors open with AC at 70 degrees F. We have no control over that. Please ask us what the cost for electricity will be before signing the rental agreement, we will be happy to provide the info.

From Villazo Ann to the river, it is not more than 30 minutes at idle speed, we have done it many times. We explain which route to follow, you need to follow the GPS or a good chart otherwise you take the wrong channel and will double the time to get into the water of the Gulf.

Thank you,

Management

Beautiful house with disappointing But..

  • 3 of 5
First of all let me start by saying the house is very tastefully decorated with quality furniture and very enjoyable from a day to day perspective.
We enjoyed 11 days at the house and it clearly met our expectations. Before we decided to rent this particular house, we have to admit that we almost did not, due to some of the poor reviews the house had mostly due to the recovery of the deposit, the extra surprise cost taken on the security deposit after the rental and on the rental of the boat not being delivered as promised. Well, unfortunately for us, part of the things reported, we actually experienced ourselves and more.
For a house which charges a nice price for cleanup fee, we were surprised to see upon arrival, poorly washed bed sheets, filthy bathroom mats , a kitchen with sticky counters and floors. We did not complain we just did laundry as other guests seem to have done before us and a thorough cleanup of the areas upon arrival which obviously had not been taken care of.
Several of the back rooms had live lovely size cockroaches, we were surprised to see such neighbors in a house of that level. Also as mentioned in one of the house comments, we experienced the same thing, we had reserved the house boat for 6 days and two days after our arrival
we were notified like the previous customer that the boat was no longer available and that it would be tough to find something else that late in the game. Lucky for us and after 2 hours of phones calls we found a replacement for the week on our own without any help, so that turned out not to be a problem just an annoyance to be told that late as we had trusted them with the boat rental and were counting on it. The house was fun and spacious and we enjoyed our stay besides having our boat GPS stolen on the house dock while sleeping,
We had no idea the area was unsafe, we had to file a police report for that piece not something we were expecting to do in Cape Coral.Finally as also mentioned in a few of the comments we had a nice surprise upon return of the deposit, we were charged 40$ because the BBQ was deemed not cleaned, there were no BBQ cleaning brush in the house so must admit we did not brush it as we had nothing to do it with but 40$ grill cleanup was steep. It was nice to see this especially after we had to refill the gas tank after only 3 grills as obviously the tank was not full when we got in, the house instructions are clear so we provided a full tank for the next renters which we did not.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately out boat could not be rented out due to some problems with the bilge pump and other electrical problems. We notified the renter upon check-in that it would be unsafe to rent this boat and we advised him to go to Paradise Boat Rentals for another boat.
Because of higher charges by this boat rental company and because of the GPS that got stolen - not at the house but at a marina i heard later from the neighbor - suddenly the house was jot clean and other issues were found. The house is cleaned very thoroughly and has even new bed linens for all rooms.

We understand the roach and apologize for this. Villazo Annis under a guaranteed pest control program but these things can happen in the mid of summer.

We appreciate your stay,

Very nice home, management lacking prowess

  • 3 of 5
The home itself is a very well kept beautiful home will well kept grounds, minus pool. Pool was dated, seemed always cloudy and dirty lots of human hair in pool, don't know if the filter was undersized or what. The pool heater was dated and broken, lost 2 days swimming waiting for repair and water to warm up. Ordered the boat for 3 days, however; the day the "Captain's orientation" after waiting at the house all day for this "Captain" to show up with the boat, I called management. Was told the boat would not be available due to major repairs. I had to find this out by driving to the managers office, which was closed. Then called the management, which then informed me of no boat. Gave us a place to rent a boat "Paradise" boat rental. Forget renting the boat from the house, go to Paradise. Very good people, who treat you right for a better deal anyway. Never saw nor heard from management unless I called or emailed. They never called us to advise us of the pool problem or boat problem. Go Florida Investments you can keep... They give you $30 for the week electric use, anything over that comes out of your security deposit. So don't turn the pool heater on or do laundry and you'll be fine... Like I said it's a very nice home, it's the management who is out to lunch... Probably be great for an elderly couple, who needs very little. Not for large families with kids...

Owner's Response: We thank you for your comment. We regret that the mechanical failure of the boat came right during the time of your stay, this is something we cannot foresee. We had to do repairs on the bilge pump and the impeller, without this repaired we do not allow rentals for security reasons.
In regards to the pool heater, the pool company got it to work after the right parts were ordered and installed. The pool heater is only 3 years old is working fine now. In addition, we have painted around the pool and have now a new fresh pool deck.

Go Florida Investments is available every day from 9:00am to 5:00pm in the office, before or after there is an emergency phone that is on all the time. We are sorry to having lived up to your expectations, however we always try to do the very best to satisfy our customers.

Villazo Ann has recently done more updates: new pool table was added in the family room.

Thank you,

Go Florida Investments.

Nice property but somewhat disappointing.

  • 3 of 5
Overall we enjoyed our stay but we had 1 set back in the end that left a bad taste in our mouths. My family and I have rented FL homes many times and this is the 1st time we did not get our complete security deposit back thanks to higher then expected energy costs. This rental contract allotted us a small amount for electricity costs for the week. We did nothing unusual, just watched TV, did some laundry, left the AC at a reasonable temp,and cooked meals. Yet our electricity bill was almost 6 times the allotted amount for the week, eating up almost 1/2 of our security deposit. This was particularly frustrating since the dryer on site is ridiculously inefficient and takes forever to dry a load. I am sure this helped contribute to the high costs. In my opinion, energy fees of regular use of a house and its amenities should be included in the rent. Lesson learned.

Pros: Owner is efficient and professional about responding to emails and calls. What was left of our security deposit was returned efficiently. House was spacious with pleasing modern decor. Beds were very comfortable, soft and high quality mattresses. Ideally situated on the corner of 2 canals, beautiful landscaping and really nice outdoor space.

Cons: Floors were dirty upon arrival, bath mats were very dirty. We washed the bath mats and swept the floor ourself after arrival, a little frustrating when you pay for cleaning, but not a big deal. Outdoor living area and furniture showed much wear and tear...cushions stained and ripped at some of the seams, screen door kick board partially kicked out. I was planning to overlook all these things if it were not for the fact that I did not get my full deposit back, I felt nickled and dimed. If I am going to pay a premium, I expect everything to be top notch, which it was not.

Note to boaters: we brought our jet boat and were looking fwd to a week of canal life. This house is a very long boat ride to the Gulf. It took us about 30 min to get to the river and then about another 45min down the river to the Gulf. This really ate up our gas and time. Half way thru the week, we ended up taking the boat out, trailering it, and launching it each day at the Cape Coral Yacht Club, close to Gulf. Another lesson learned.

Owner's Response: Our rental agreements explain very clear the section SECURITY DEPOSIT. We take a security deposit against damages and extra electricity consumption. We include a $25/week free electricity allowance. The security deposit itself is usually $300,- to $500 depending on the length of the stay.
Villazo Ann has a smart meter which means that the electricity consumption can be read online. We forward the readings and the graph so you can see the readings for yourself. We suggest monitoring the AC, closing doors and keeping the lights off if not necessary.

As far as cleaning, we agree that the bath mats might have been dirty and the cleaning lady must have noticed this. In the meantime, we have changed the mats and bought new ones.

For all boaters, we love the area and the access to the Gulf is not more than 20 min. Our boat captain explains which canal to go through so the shortest way is taken.
I suggest all renters to look up the address of the house so you can see the distances for boating.

Thank you for your comments.

Pictures do not do this property justice

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time renting a house in Florida.Needless to say we were hesitant to expect the pictures to live up to appearance in person..Wow we were so impressed as soon as we walked in the door!!We were 3 couples and the house is so well designed we were not in each others way.Clean modern with loads of amenities.Everything listed was there and more!! Location is fantastic. Close to shopping and resturants but also very quiet and private. Next door neighbours very friendly and couldnt be more helpful recommending sites to visit. Cannot say enough about the house and locaion. Koen was also very easy to work with and accomodated all of our requests.We have just booked another house through Koen for 2014.Highly recommended, do not hesitate to book.
