Guestbook comments from the owner

Jerry and Sue

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us the second time. We has such a wonderful week and will miss Longboat Key when we head back to Lexington. Our favorite thing was your fabulous pool and deck. We spent our days outside. Hope to return again some day. Thanks

Overall Experience in LBK great....rental property needs some updates!

  • 3 of 5

The location was great! The views were AMAZING! The property and amenities could use updating and maintenance.

Kitchen appliances, bathroom shower fixtures,outdoor furniture,grill etc....All need updating.

Made mention of all to owner upon our return home about 2 weeks ago.

As of today, no word back from him.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest Thanks for your constructive comments. All the appliances are older top of the line GE/White and work as expected. The grill gets damaged by being so close to the water and is replaced periodically. We are pleased you enjoyed the Amazing View and the wonderful decks for relaxation. Jerry

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this clean, bright, well situated house. We loved the heated pool. The hot tub is perfectly placed over-looking the canal and bay. It's really nice at night. We spent hours relaxing on the deck just taking in the views. We even saw a few dolphin. The outdoor sound system is a nice plus. The pretty beach is just a short walk away and we always felt like we had it to ourselves. The house is comfortable and has everything you need. We will be back!

Longboat Key beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this absolutely wonderful home. The pool, the views, the house were more then we expected. Our little yorkie spent many long walks to Durante Park and we spent many days on the gulf. The sunrises were spectacular with a great view from the home and deck. We all enjoyed the pool immensely on a daily basis. This home was well equipped with everything that you need. The owners were very gracious and accommodating welcoming us with fresh flowers and fruit. We will most definitely be returning to this absolutely lovely home. Thank you Jerry and Sue for allowing us to vacation in your beautiful home

Das Haus ist schön, aber....

  • 1 of 5

Wir können das Haus leider gar nicht weiterempfehlen und waren sehr entäuscht. Wir (Paar, 40 Jahre) haben das Haus 2 Tage vor Anreise gebucht. Die Bilder im Internet sind veraltet, denn als wir dort ankamen, realisierten wir, dass links und rechts vom Haus eine Baustelle inklusive extremem Baulärm war. Der vor Ort ansässige Hausmeister des Hauses (sehr freundlich) entschuldigte sich bei uns und war ebenfalls sehr überrascht, dass uns der Eigentümer nicht auf diesen Umstand hingewiesen hatte. Wir waren natürlich nicht die einzigen, die entweder frühzeitig abreisten oder eine finanzielle Entschädigung erhalten wollten. Diese sagte uns der Eigentümer dann auch zu. Zurück in Deutschland erhielten wir zwar eine Rückzahlung, allerdings nicht die vereinbarte. Auf unser Nachfragen hin, behauptete der Eigentümer, dass er uns nicht die gesamte, vereinbarte Rückzahlungssumme erstatten könnte, da wir das Haus in einem sehr verdreckten Zustand hinterlassen hätten. Alles in allem: es gibt sehr viele schöne Häuser in Florida und wir haben während unseres Aufenthalts unglaublich viele freundliche Menschen und Gegenden kennengelernt. Diese hier können wir auf keinen Fall weiterempfehlen. Der Eigentümer hat uns die Baustelle verschwiegen, die Aussicht wird, wenn das Haus fertig ist, auch nicht mehr die gleiche wie auf den Bildern sein und alles in allem fühlen wir uns um die Zeit und auch unser Geld betrogen. Nun verstehen wir, warum wir Vorkasse leisten mussten.

Owner's Response: I rented to this couple with a small child at the last minute because they were from Europe with no place to stay. I was in the airport on my way to Europe. I told them about the construction but they rented anyway. After two days they were dissatisfied and I offered them all their money back to vacate. I had my site manager go to the house and offer them their money back but they insisted on staying for the term. Big mistake on my part not to interview my guests in advance as is my procedure.
