Very good house, poor after service

  • 1 of 5

The house was great and we really enjoyed our stay. We even talked about booking again for the following year. Unfortunately we had a few issues with the pool temperature and also the pool filter which meant we could not use the pool for some of our stay. We contacted Sabine but in the end we never heard anything and just used the pool at the clubhouse instead.

Subsequent emails were sent but no response. We had a delivery to the house arrive late and we have emailed and called numerous times but no answer which I find to be very poor service and thus the poor review and rating.

I will keep trying to contact Sabine as I would like to know what happened to the delivery. UPS says it was delivered and not returned to them. Maybe you can get in touch Sabine??

Owner's Response: Dear Paul, I replied to your inquiry regarding the pool on April 18 and then with the result of the pool company on April 24 (although I just realize that I sent the replies to Mark as the booking was under the name of Mark): The pool did not have enough water to include the skimmer to allow a proper circulation of the water. As of the pool company this happens during dry season and when people jump in pools so water gets lost. In our ring binder we kindly ask our guests to either fill the pool up with the hose provided or report to us so we can take care of filling pool up. The pool heat was set to 82F as of the contract, we drove by the house and set it up a little higher when we stopped-by and delivered the FOB. We did never receive a phone call nor a message on our phone nor an e-mail in regards to an outstanding delivery. If we would have found something we would have asked, as we always do with our guests. If UPS delivered, then someone must have signed, but neither myself nor cleaning crew did so. Following guests did not report anything as well. Perhaps it was delivered to a neighbor? I am so sorry that I cannot help there at this point... Sabine

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We love our stay at the Pellican House. The house was clean and well equipped. The pool was great, we used it a lot. There were a couple of issues, the refrigerator was broken, but replaced within a couple of days. The cage around the pool had gaps, allowing salamanders and bugs to get in, but I believe a repair was also in the works. The barbecue had seen better days. The beds were comfortable, but was glad we brought our own pillows. The only thing I would change are the couches in the family room which are uncomfortable for older people. Sabine is a pleasure to deal with. She replied promptly whenever I emailed her.

We have rented this house again for next year and really looking forward to it

This house was perfect for my family. We were able to be close to our mom and enjoyed the holidays. She loved seeing her grandkids and great grandkids. It was a special time. Thank you so much and we look forward to returning.

Wonderful to Work With

  • 5 of 5

Sabine, from the management company was excellent to work with. We changed our dates to stay longer prior to arrival and she was very accommodating. We arrived and were greeted with a snack of chips and salsa and a bottle of wine (although we don't drink alcohol), the gesture was so nice. The location isn't in the middle of busyness, but it is close enough to shopping, food and the major highways. We drove to Anna Maria Island a few times to watch the sunset (something you want to fit in your schedule if possible). Not too far from a mall.

The bedrooms are spacious, the bathrooms sufficient. The couches in the living room kind of hug you, so for older folks it was hard to get out of once you sat in. It might be good to have another arm chair to sit in, in the living room, other than the couch and love seat. The beds were comfortable. The home was nicely decorated.

We were there two weeks and told the pool would be cleaned during that time. If it was, we aren't aware of it. It might be good for the pool cleaning service to leave a slip on the patio table somehow so we know it was cleaned.

Something to watch for, that is different than the state we live, is that when you are at the stop light, you can not go over the white line or traffic cameras take a pic and you get a surprise in the mail! A few weeks after we arrived home, we received a $158 traffic ticket. We drove through the yellow light, but it had turned red as we were getting through it. However; we had no idea it had turned red because we were already through it. We called the city, they said he could see how we missed it but the only way to get out of paying it was to appear in court. Seeing we are 1500 miles away, that won't happen.

Overall, staying at the Spacious Vacation Home in Ellenton, was a wonderful experience. We hope to return to the same home and have already told others about it. Can't beat the price in comparison to a hotel.

Thanks again Sabine and her management company, Prime Property Management. We appreciate your quality of service.

The photos do not do this home justice. It has all the amenities you would need to enjoy your holidays. We very much enjoyed out stay. The house is spacious, modern and clean. The neighbourhood safe and the properties well maintained. The house is close to many good restaurants, 20 minutes to Anna Maria Island, 30 minutes to Sarasota, 10 minutes to the Ellenton Outlet Mall. The heated pool is a bonus. We are staying again next year. We had a great time! Thanks, Sabine!

erholsamer Urlaub in schönem Ambiente

  • 5 of 5

In der Villa Pelican haben wir einen sehr schönen und erholsamen Urlaub verbracht.

Das Haus ist sehr gut und komfortabel ausgestattet, sehr sauber und verfügt über sehr großzügige Räumlichkeiten und jede Menge Platz. Wir konnten gar nicht alle Räume nutzen. Auf der Terrasse mit kleinem gepflegten und beheiztem Pool hat man eine wunderschöne Aussicht auf den angrenzenden See mit seiner vielfältigen Vogelwelt. Durch einen „cage“ ist man dort sicher vor allen wilden Tieren. Zur Ausstattung des Hauses gehören neben einer großen Küche mit allen notwendigen Gerätschaften und einem riesigen Kühlschrank, zahlreiche Fernseher, eine große Garage, Waschmaschine und Wäschetrockner. Die Klimaanlage ist in den USA sowieso Standard. Im größten Bad der drei vorhandenen finden sich eine geräumige Dusche, eine Badewanne sowie zwei Waschbecken, sodass man auch zu zweit das Bad bequem nutzen kann.

In der Umgebung finden sich zahlreiche Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, insbesondere eine große Shopping-Mall, und viele Restaurants. In etwa 30 bis 45 Minuten erreicht man mit dem Auto die schönen Strände der Golfküste.

Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder!

Marcus Z.
