Great beach house
Great place..however, there were some things that need addressing. In the pictures, it showed to be a beachfront property, small beach in pictures. No beach..The shower in the master bath did not function properly. The water did not come out of all the heads properly.., just barely sprayed. The. Toilet closet in the green shower roomed smelled of urine. I tried all kinds of things to clean it... May have a leak . It was a Great place for a vacation. I feel that those things I mentioned just need some maintenance. The picture of the beach needs to be taken off the site.
Owner's Response: First of all, thank you for your review and for staying at our home. We really appreciate any advice we can get to make the rental experience better for the next renters. With only 7 hours to clean the entire home, wash linens/towels, pool/hot tub maintenance, etc... It is very difficult for us to improve the home without renters input. We have not had a single day of vacancy in the past months and everything needs to be done within those 7 hours per week when no renters are in the home.
Re- Urine Smell: Perhaps the cleaning products the maintenance crew used were too strong.... sewer leak would not smell of solely urine and would have gotten worse over time... never had a complaint for this before or after this rental…..
Re- Shower Pressure: The previous renters had turned down water pressure with the adjustable valve, issue is resolved. Thank you for bringing this up to our attention.
Re- Beach Area: The photos from the website were all taken by a professional photographer in town. I have no problem giving any interested renter his contact information to confirm he did come to the house to take every single photo listed. We did not take a picture of someone else’s backyard... Anyone concerned, please just Google map the property. Of course, when the tide is high, you have less sand and more water..... and with the strong summer storms almost daily, it is hard to prevent erosion. However, we do not alter our backyard (removing seaweed birds feed on, adding purchased sand, etc…) Please keep in mind this is not an "artificial beach in Dubai" with 0 wildlife but rather a real habitat for birds, fish, mangroves, etc... If you want a huge white sandy beach with the tourists, perhaps renting on Siesta Key or Lido Key would be a better option.
Thanks again for the heads up on the shower issue and all the best to you and your family!
