Guestbook comments from the manager

The cottage was very comfortable and I could tell the owners put a lot of thought in the little things that made us extra comfortable. The owners are very nice people and helped us with local knowlege. The location is exactly as they described it. We walked everywhere. I recommend it highly!!

Charming and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This place was charming and in a lovely area of historic bungalows. It's an easy walk to Burns Court and to downtown Sarasota. We stayed in the "right" side of Mangrove Cottage. The place is inviting and warm.

Very Nice Stay, Thank You.

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had a very nice stay at the rental in Sarasota. We liked the fact that we could park in the driveway and walk a few steps to the front door. Easy access for physically challenged people. No steps. The shower was a step over the tub though. Very clean, bright and cheery. We will recommend highly to friends.

The Mangrove Cottage was perfect for our needs.

  • 5 of 5

The wife and I stayed 1 week at the cottage for the third time. We have come back every year for 3 years now. WE choose this cottage because we like the location which is close to downtown. We walk to entertainment and to all our meals. The cottage is fully outfitted with everything we need. Clean and well maintained. We are friendly with the owners who attentive when we ask- otherwise give us our privacy. Just the way we like it.

Great location-cozy and charming

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Mangrove Cottage. The location is in a very interesting, quiet historic neighborhood filled with great architecture and landscaping. (Take the neighborhood historic home walking tour - maps available in Laurel Park.) Just a few blocks from Burns Court Cinema and all of the great downtown restaurants. The cottage is nicely decorated, with everything you need. A very good choice!

I found this rental to be very comfortable. It was very well organized, supplied all the necessities needed for my 1 week stay. It was clean and well managed. The managers were helpful and very responsive. I mostly enjoy the location. Easy walking around town with well lit streets.

Not One, But Two!

Rats.

Mangrove is ideally-located.

After move-in, unpack & settle, we found Mangrove to be filthy with soiled, dishes, flatware, cookware & countertops; human hair was scattered about. Cupboards, doors & drawers were sticky & grimy. The WiFi-marginal at best & P/W UNK. Call to owner obtained 17-digit P/W. During conversation, was asked of comfort & mentioned how unit really didn’t appear prepared for occupancy; owner aghast. To their credit, we were asked to give a window for a cleaning re-do over next several days & offered hotel room until cleaning crew finished in our absence. Once provided a window, owner revised plan to include their inspection first. We found revised plan unacceptable due to our cleaning effort. Then rain; followed by a leaky roof. Owner notified; again, aghast! On return from outing, my suspicions of unwelcomed guests was confirmed several days later with greeting of a RAT as he scurried from closet to bed to under living room chair. Later found mouse dropping & food-store under sofa cushions. More droppings to be found behind the washer. Once again, aghast, the owner indicted the exterminator would be there soon. Later, an unidentified man appeared at door. Assumed him exterminator & asked his name, introduced himself as owner. Owner’s call to exterminator found they’d cancelled rodent extermination, based on review which found the property to be rodent-secure. Subsequent owner visitation removed DEAD RAT; RAT traps re-set on the FOOD PREP surface of kitchen. Professional review again verified site as rodent-secure. More rain; more water-soaked living area. That night, another well-fed RAT was captured by the dryer. Were promised a partial refund; later revised to an exchange of 2 nights in a hotel & partial refund for discarded food at leaving. Owner DOES NOT do meet-&greet as they indicate in many Owner Comments. Professional cleaners were overheard talking about needing 45 minutes to thoroughly clean a cottage

Mangrove Left is currently under investigation by VRBO.

Owner's Response: Of all the hundreds of guests we've enjoyed over the past few years, this was the first guest we had to ask leave! He was very disruptive. The review he has summited is full of untruths. It stand to reason, this review is not true based on all other 5 star reviews. We can supply references from many past guests who come back every year. All 5 of our cottages remain among the highest rated rentals with VRBO and HomeAway
