Its Not the Place for You!

  • 1 of 5

I messed up. I had a budget of $1500 for a stay in the Clearwater area with my family and sisters family. 8 people total. I found this house and it seemed like a 6-7 out of 10 from the pictures. The pictures are not a fair appraisal of its current conditions. We got there and the ground level had mold and a strong mold smell. The upstairs was clean but one bedroom had bedbugs on the comforter. My sister's family was pissed because I booked it. We ended up staying in the Sarasota Area for a little more but it was a much better area and less crowded. Pass on this place, look around Johns Pass or St Armand's.

Owner's Response: Brooke, Had your returned ANY of my calls or emails, I would have been able to talk to you. I'm hurt and offended by this malicious review. I was shocked when your husband left me an email. Right away the property managers sent a company to inspect the house. There were NO bed bugs. There was NO mold. I have the letter from the property manager's company along with the company that checked for bed bugs and mold. They went in THAT day. Since you didn't stay there I also refunded your money entirely right away. As far the pictures are concerned, we change the bedding on the beds and replaced the upstairs patio furniture. That's the only difference. By your last sentence in your review, it sounds to me that you wanted a different area and made malicious comments about my house even with everything I tried to do to help and refund your money. Should you ever decide that you want to see the report that there was no such thing in my house. Please feel free to contact me. In the meantime, have a wonderful Fall. Lucie Hunter

This home was just perfect for our Florida vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The swimming pool and private beach were amazing. We were close to any shopping that we needed. We rented a pontoon boat for a day and had a great day on the water fishing and collecting sea shells. We even spent one day in Disney with our 2 and 4 year old granddaughters. Super holiday !

Lucie was always readily available if we had any questions.

We definately hope to return soon.

Family vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

We visited Lucy's house in April 2017, looking for a nice family vacation where we could go out and have some family fun days at the beach, water park or boating. Or just relax by the private pool, we were able to do all of this on our trip to Florida.

The house was perfect for our family of 8, we rented with my sister and her two kids along with my husband and 2 kids. The house was perfect and the pool was a great source of fun for the kids and adults. The management company was friendly and helpful, we would highly recommend renting Lucy's house for your family vacation!!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 seniors renting the house for March 2017 to escape the Canadian winter and do some golfing. The house is very spacious, lots of room for 6 or even more. It was clean when we arrived, is open and is bright. We made good use of the heated pool which is large compared to many. The private beach belonging to the development is clean and very pleasant. The house is well-equipped including the kitchen, bedrooms, pool accessories etc.

The location is convenient for shopping and walking. It is close to many restaurants and golf courses are relatively close and inexpensive (at least by Canadian standards). On street parking is not allowed but the driveway will accommodate 2 vehicles and there is a huge garage that could hold another 3 vehicles if ever required.

Lucie is pleasant to work with and responded quickly to the few inquiries we had. I have no reservations in recommending this house.
