Once in a lifetime Experience

  • 5 of 5
Let me start out by saying, I was compelled to write a review about this outstanding property especially after reading the 1 negative review that rambled on and on. It seems totally made up, because it does not reflect anything we experienced to say the least.
As soon as we arrived at the property Mark gave us a tour of the entire home in detail. You don't usually get that in vacation rentals. And if you do it is a rare find. As soon as we walked in we knew we had picked the right vacation home. Everything was in place right down to the toiletries, we won't be bringing as much on our next trip because everything was right there for us... : ). Every room was clean and spotless, "love the mosaic stone tile floors". This house has a Mediterranean feel to it, right down to the dark emerald granite countertops in the kitchen. The part that made this vacation worthwhile and will keep us coming back is the TROPICAL PARADISE in the backyard. The pictures don’t do it justice, it looks even better than the photos online, gracious host and wonderful vacation spot. My family and I plan on returning to this property early next year for our second visit. I hope the one negative review does not affect your decision to choose this rental because if you do, you are missing out on a wonderful experience.

Ants and high temperatures indoors ruined vacation

  • 1 of 5
From day one this was an awful experience; day 1 of arrival there were ants and a dead palmetto roach in the tub. He did call in an exterminator however the ants continued marching the entire trip. Its clear this is an ongoing issue at the house but never once did the owner disclose the infestation to us prior to arrival. Then the required a/c temp was not disclosed to us prior to arrival that you could not drop the air conditioning temperature below 78 degrees this made for an extremely hot vacation while indoors! This home is from the 1950's era and the air conditioning was retrofitted so it does not cool properly at all! Even though it was set to 78°it never actually could bring the temp indoors to 78. It was almost always at 80° inside while on vacation in Florida, come on! It's hot and musty in the home. Totally uncomfortable at night when your trying to sleep. The ice maker in the kitchen fridge is bacteria ridden, we notified the owner to no solution offered. A simple shrug of the shoulders was all he offered! This ice stinks so bad that one could become ill very easily. In a 1 week stay no pool cleaning was arranged nor did he offer despite being requested at check in a vacuum to clean it ourselves. The pool or spa were not ready upon arrival. The owner had just started draining the spa upon check in. Once day 3 rolled around the pool started having dead worms etc building up at the bottom. Since no vacuum was provided, only a skimmer, there was no way to clean it. Many items in the pictures are no longer there, completely different master bedroom set, no entertainment center, no TV in the kitchen etc. We come to Fort Lauderdale every year and this by far was the worst experience we ever had to the point where we feel scared to rent a home again! At the very end of our stay even more issues which I will be legally disputing! It was disappointment after disappointment! The home was attempted to be updated but falls short in too many ways. Overall the property isn't worth the price because the owner is sneaky due to
non - disclosure of known issues which make staying here uncomfortable or unhealthy. The deposit policy is exorbitantly high and unlike any other property I have seen on homeaway or stayed at prior. There is a reason for this. This is an old home and things break down in this home that are a owners responsibility! The indoor heat was unbearable! The insects everywhere was disgusting! Just contact me if you need to know more!

Owner's Response: My original intention was to not respond to this ridiculous and childish bashing of our property, however at the request of some guests that have contacted me I’ve decided to do so.

Unfortunately this guest and their group were the renters from hell and a problem from the moment they arrived. First I’d like to address some of the points in this review. We are in Florida. In the summer time when it rains a lot, ants will find a way inside. We took care of that situation right away. There is nothing wrong with the Air Conditioning, we had it checked. There are 2 ice makers, one inside and one in the outdoor kitchen and both work well.

These guests even received a discount on the rental because they booked on short notice and initially didn’t want to put the deposit. However that is not negotiable.

Ultimately they left the home a mess and clogged the main sewer line with toilet paper. Two adults and one 6 year old child used 8 rolls of toilet paper in a 7 night stay. We had to call a plumber to clear the main sewer line after they left. It cost $150, which was deducted from the deposit. I sent a copy of the bill along with a refund for the rest of the deposit. She got mad because of that and wrote a negative review.

We clean and service the home after each guest leaves. The guests before her had no problems and the guests that came right after she left, had no problems, and there hasn’t been any issues since.

In the past I’ve had to retain part of a deposit for a broken screen door ; $75 and now this time for the clogged sewer. $150

I have satisfied guests that have come from all over the world to stay with us. We take pride in our property and the way we treat everyone. Our reviews are an example of that.

What an amazing home 5 adults (soon 5 children after using the pool and slide) stayed here in comfort for part of our vacation everything was perfect from the home to all the amenities on offer just wish we had more than 5 days there,, A big thanks go out to Mark who waited for us to arrive after informing him we were looking at being at least another 4 hours late from our initial arrival time it was no problem for him to arrive at home about 11pm on a Sat night to welcome us and to make sure we all settled in well,, thanks again Mark. After posting pictures on internet for friends to see many have already been asking for details of home so hopefully I will be returning here again soon one day

The pictures do not do this house justice!!

  • 5 of 5
Staying at this house was amazing. Mark was so gracious and helpful and the house was clean and cozy. Everything we needed for our stay was there and its location which was close to the beach, shopping, restaurants and south beach was great. The back yard was everything it appeared to be and more. We spent 75% of our vacation back there. As an adult getting to play on a water slide was one of my highlights. I have already told everyone I know about this house and plan to return there. The backyard has everything you can imagine and we used it all. From the grill, to the pool,slide and fireplace it is perfect of entertaining or family fun time. You will def. have not regrets staying there. Enjoy!!!
