Bare Bones Rental house
This house is fine if you can put up with a pool without a patio,walking on gravel in bare feet is uncomfortable.Furthermore, if sitting broken plastic furniture dose not bother you this is the house for you.Most of the kitchen pots silverware and small appliances are very cheep, if you rent here bring your own! The overgrown trees and shrubbery in the driveway make it very difficult and down right dangerous to exit the driveway.In fact one of our guests did have a car accident leaving the driveway.And what ever you do never spend any of your own money on the house expecting to get re-embursed from the owner,even if they say they will.For what the rental fee is you can do much much better if you look around.
Owner's Response: It is worthy to note that this Tenant is not a VRBO client as he has always rented the property through a local Realty, thus his primary and only point of contact to resolve any issues rest with the Realty and not the owners. This Tenant has rented the property for 6 consecutive years, why then did it suddenly become unacceptable and of lesser value when compared to other properties in the area. Surely he had ample time to secure another property over a 6 year period. Then the answer becomes obvious, because it is beautiful and spacious home in a great location with excellent amenities competitively priced.
The TRUE FACTS why this tenant wrote such inaccurate and demeaning review are as follows: During his 2011 stay without obtaining prior approval the tenant purchased a household item for the sum of $150.00 for his personal use and comfort. The expenditure is not reported until 6 weeks into his 2012 stay at which point the Realty is notified and in order to please their client he is offered a credit of equal value towards his 2013 visit. The tenant rejects the offer and demands reimbursement in the form of cash or check or he will not return the following year.
(1) Silverware and small appliances they are in good shape and meet or exceed industry standards. However he fails to mention that major appliances are top of the line Sub-Zero etc.
(2)Trees and Shrubs: unlike other area properties that use pebbles and low ground cover and shrubs, we are nature lovers and enjoy being among trees, consequently over the years we have created a keys Hardwood Hammock that enhances the property and provides privacy and shade.
(3) At the time the pool was added Local Code prohibited a deck do to Storm water run-off; however stepping stones and a small paver deck has been added. The pool furniture is plastic and it is replaced as the need demands. Due to the salt air environment any other material would just oxidize prematurely.
How ironic that after 6 years his unreasonable demands are not met and suddenly the property becomes unpleasing and unacceptable
