Renter beware - this property is not as advertised

  • 1 of 5

On the surface, this house seems great - but look any closer and you will be disappointed. First of all, the pool is not heated as is prominently advertised. The owner claimed that the heater stopped working right before we got there, but upon inspection, it hasn't been working for a very, very long time. The owner then lied about the situation, not knowing that we contacted someone else who had stayed at the property long ago and the pool did not have a functioning heater then either. We paid a premium for a property with a heated pool, but couldn't use the pool the entire trip due to very cold water. You could easily find a nicer house without a pool for far less money. Equally important was the lack of cleaning and general disrepair that has clearly been building up over a long period of time. The vents are lined with dust, the carpets by the doors and walls are filthy, cobwebs in the house and in the lanai, cushions on the chairs in the kitchen and dining room are ripped, one of the pool chairs was broken, there is a section of the lanai that is secured with duct tape, the list goes on... The owner has made it very clear that he is more interested in making excuses that he is in owning being responsible for the situation and reimbursing us for charging a premium for something that wasn't delivered. We were offered a discount on a future stay, which is laughable. We wish that previous renters would have been honest about their stays (if the ones listed here are legitimate reviews) so that we could have avoided this property. Note: We have pictures to document everything.

Great location, perfect floor plan for 2 families, gorgeous pool, canal front!!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

What a great location, close to shopping and entertainment, yet off the beaten path on a quiet, very private street. This home is the perfect layout for 2 families looking to stay together, while still having a bit of space and privacy in your own half of the home. Very open kitchen, living and dining area makes it a great space for entertaining and spending time with family and friends. The gorgeous pool and lanai area is quite inviting, with a built in table and seating area inside the pool itself, and a grill / bar area with ample seating all around. Thank you so much for accommodating us, Frank!! We will definitely be back next December (if not sooner!)!

Exceptional rental, location and value!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Beautiful home in Port Charlotte; directly on the canal with a dock in a serene, suburban locale. Wonderfully quiet! Plenty of room, great kitchen, very comfortable beds and furniture. House comes fully equipped with everything you need, plenty of parking, air conditioning, ceiling fans, television and DirectTV. AND A POOL! Pool was awesome - spent much of our time sunning or swimming. Local food and liquor store 4 miles away, plenty of small restaurants and fast food places also. Boca Grande Beach is 12 miles and Englewood Beach is 13 miles, both on the Gulf and both beautiful for swimming and family outings. Lemon Bay is great for dolphin watching and only 9 miles away. Many state parks and trails within 5 miles. Very easy to get around, super places for swimming, fishing, water sports, hiking and bicycling. Owner is very responsive - we had no problems, but when we did have a question got a response within an hour.

Highly recommended for a stress free vacation stay!

Beautiful Remote and Large

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We stayed here for 3 days. The place was everything we needed. It was big enough for my group of 10 since we used both sides. It was a little dusty when we got there and the internet was down for our whole visit...but the beds were nice, the place was spacious and the pool was wonderful (maybe a little high on clorine?). It is just a few minutes from a nice remote beach. Great! We barbequed on the 4th of July on the huge grill. This is a really nice touch.

Nice Experience!!! I recommend this place if you are staying in the area. Owner communicates in a timely manner.
