Unbelievable Home !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came from Philadelphia with a group of 8 for a long weekend. This mansion is unbelievable and truly breath taking. This home was extremely clean and well worth the money !! The pictures could never give this home the justice it deserves ! Bret was a pleasure to deal with and made our stay very comfortable. We will definitely be looking to stay here again next time we are in Lauderdale.

Fantastic Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Mom and Dad treated the entire family to a beautiful week at this unbelievable home in Fort Lauderdale. 5 families totalling 19 people enjoyed the week here!!! The home is clean, beautiful, and spacious - plenty of room for all of us. The description is a great representation of the home.

I HIGHLY recommend this property. The managers provided excellent service to us. They were hightly attentive to our needs.

I have no hesitation in recommending this property. We would love to return!

Not as Advertised - Management Company is Rude

  • 1 of 5

While the home itself is fine, we found our experience with the house anything but a "Masterpiece". There are stains on the carpeting, there is no working ice maker, the microwave is broken and a $50.00 microwave was bought and thrown in the corner for use. The week we were there the sidewalks were closed and it was very difficult to get across the street and get anywhere by foot. I spoke to the Management Company several times and he not only lied to me (saying the construction moves often when it does not) but he was hesitant to help us or show empathy for the problems. He never came to help and only sent people to do his job. Many of the nice features of the home can not be used like the driveway gate for security purposes. The pool is not heated - the hot tub is heated and flows into the pool. The "easy to use" pool remote they advertise was broke when we got there. We made the best of it, but I would never work with this Management Company again. They are a joke and a disgrace.

Owner's Response: The very first conversation that I had with this guest was when she called me to complain about the construction on the road in front of the beach BEFORE she even arrived at the house. Her complaints stem solely from the construction in the area and NOT from the actual house or myself. I would like to point out that the guests that checked out on the SAME day that this guest arrived posted a 5 star review of the property. They said: This mansion is unbelievable and truly breath taking. This home was extremely clean and well worth the money!! The pictures could never give this home the justice it deserves! Bret was a pleasure to deal with and made our stay very comfortable. We will definitely be looking to stay here again next time we are in Lauderdale. I would like to also point out that this property (in 4 years) has never had a review of less then 5 stars. In fact, if you consider all of my current listings, I have 33 Five Star reviews and 1 Four Star Review. The second time that this guest called me was to tell me that the ice maker was not working which she did so using profanity which was completely unnecessary (to say the least). I did not appreciate her foul language so I asked her to please put her husband on the phone (I dealt with him throughout the booking process). When he got on the phone he said "Let me step outside so that I can speak freely". After he stepped outside (away from his wife) he said "This house is gorgeous". To address her points: A temporary counter top microwave was immediately provided until the $1,800 Wolf microwave was repaired (within 48 hours) A new pool remote was delivered to her We ask that the outside gate remains open so that our private trash hauling service can come to get the garbage and recycling which is inside the gate. It is emptied twice per week and our guests do not have to haul it to the curb because the trash company comes to get it and brings it back on to the property. We are the only vacation rental managers (that I know of) that provide this private service so our guests don't have to be bothered. The pool is heated by a propane heater which is the most efficient (and expensive) way to heat a pool. We keep the pool very warm in the winter. The guest may have been using the remote incorrectly. I have who I consider to be the best property manager in the business. He manages properties for the billionaire, Mark Cuban. He was at the house upon the guest's arrival.

Vacation Home Beyond Words!!

  • 5 of 5

Aesthetics of the Property: The mansion is absolutely breathtaking! Like previous reviewers have stated, the pictures truly do not do it justice. There were a few minor damages when we arrived, but nothing that put a damper on our stay. We had a larger group so the kitchen being fully stocked with utensils, cookware, dishes, etc., was a definite plus. I will say, be careful with the refrigerator & freezer! The seals are absolutely child proof. J Beds are super comfortable, & the bedrooms & closets are all super spacious.

 

Cleanliness: Everything was perfect – bathrooms, bedrooms, pool area, etc. It added a nice touch that all bathrooms were stocked with hand soap & Kleenex, & the den area downstairs was stocked with a basket of clean beach towels.

 

Location: It’s in a residential area, but still had a secluded feel – which we loved. It’s literally steps from Fort Lauderdale beach & not a terrible drive from South Beach &/or Miami. It’s just around the corner from a Publix & Walgreens as well. We did a lot of cooking so we didn’t get to experience any dining in the area. There was construction on the main street, but we didn’t experience any congestion.

 

Customer Service: Management was great! They were very detailed with the instructions they left for us – checking out, elevator, hot tub instructions, etc. They made the process very seamless.

 

Overall: My family & I enjoyed our stay beyond our expectations & we will definitely be returning! I would recommend to all friends & family without hesitation!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the house. As for the "minor damages", we took the opportunity to fix them after you left. We didn't want to inconvenience you in any way during your vacation so we waited until you left. We would love to have you back next year!

Marvelous Mansion

  • 5 of 5

My family, friends & I had the pleasure of spending 2014 Labor Day weekend in Ft Lauderdale, FL at the Mediterranean Masterpiece.  What an exciting time we had! The house was exquisite everything flowed as though it was our own home. Everything we needed was available.  We had party of eighteen people there was more then enough room and space for everyone. There were some that went out and enjoyed the city, and some that didn't go anywhere because the atmosphere was so homey and cozy: relaxing in the pool, spa or a around of pool.

The rooms were immaculate and spacious, each with there own private bathrooms, the master bedroom is a penthouse suite  all its own. Overall we were satisfied and impressed, so impressed we have made a decision to do it again very soon.
