The photos don't do this place justice. This is an outstanding house in a beautiful area. We enjoyed it so much that we are planning on trying to book this place for our vacation again next year.

We enjoyed our stay. It is a very beautiful home.

  • 1 of 5

We have stayed at this property for two years and had verbal commitment accepted by the tenant for the third year. We call Home Away to make our payment so that we can be sure that we totally understand the process because the emails come to us in German.

After our verbal commitment for the third year, we received notification for payment via email in German. We noticed that the tenant had raised the rent and shortened the stay. At the time of verbal agreement, there was no mention of a price increase or a change in the length of stay. We emailed him just to clarify and he said that Home Away had invoked an addition fee, but he did adjust the length of stay to the same as previous years. We wished he had been forthcoming at the time of verbal agreement; however, this did not deter us from wanting to stay the third year, it was just a point of clarification.

We were in the middle of our second year at this location and got an email very early one morning that the first half of our rent for the third year was due by 10 am that day. The owner gave us the option of either paying Home Away or paying cash to the house sitter. I emailed him immediately to explain that we were leaving on a side trip that day for two days and would not have access to phone Home Away, email Home Away payment or pay cash as we were on a ferry in the ocean and had no cell or internet access. He put us in an unreasonable position. We asked for a two-day extension to get back to the mainland. He denied the extension and said he hoped we would understand. Understand what; he was breaking his verbal agreement? We told him that we did not understand and never received another communication from him.

The suggestion to pay cash to the house sitter was inappropriate and was bypassing Home Away procedure. We know that he had not contacted his house sitter concerning this because we received an email from her thanking us for leaving the house in very good condition and was looking forward to seeing us next year.

From our very first stay, this tenant has pressured us for payment earlier and earlier. We have always paid timely. We have always left the home in better condition that it was upon our arrival.

Excellent vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The online pictures of the house do not do it justice. The home is spacious, clean well equipped, and very comfortable. The location is residential which is lovely for walks and guaranteed a peaceful quiet stay.

Located on a canal the views from he lanai were lovely and tropical. The river was also nearby and the sunrises were spectacular. Close enough to shopping and beaches, very easy to access everything needed for a great vacation.

Local house manager was excellent to work with and the process of accessing the house was simple and straightforward.

We really appreciated the comfortable beds, not something you find in all rental locations. Also had excellent wifi.

Only recommendation we would make would be the tv package. We appreciated the kids channels, but there was limited choice of other channels. Not a big deal but would have appreciated cnn or bbc news. Highly recommended, didn't want to leave
