This owner will use ever reason to keep your deposit and the system within VRBO is broken to help. Do not rent from this owner. This property is in need of repairs and don't let him tell you otherwise. He will use every reason to keep your money so make repairs that should be done. Also, in the winter the pool is not heated and the sun is shaded to the pool so it is very cold. There is a rat trap in the back yard. This guy had the nerve to ask me how long I was taking a shower and that was the reason the drain didn't work. I was speechless. His claim is my hair caused the drain to plug from Day 1.

Here are the reasons why he will not return my deposit in the first response: I noticed outside lights left on the living room cable tv was knock off signal and not working the way I gave it to them

the large window in the staircase blinds cord had been all screwed up in notts, I even tie them high, and hang on a nail, just so guest would leave it alone:

the large blue bathroom on 2nd floor someone actually punched a hole in tile around the bathtub:

theres another crack in the tile in the master bath Jacuzzi, they said the Jacuzzi wasn't draining fast, before they came there was no drain problem, but after my maids cleaned Jacuzzi drain, the was a lot of hair

I assume it was from the most recent guests, I would like to receive full security deposit, to cover all damages, and problems, Thanks Ben Howard

Here is what he changed it to, very sneaky good thing I copied and pasted the original version!!

We are just about finish cleaning and inspecting property, I found that the living room tv has lost it signal and not working the way I gave it to you, the lights on the outside, side of house were left on, somebody got the curtain cord in the large window in the staircase all screwed up, had it tied to a nail so guest would leave it alone,, somebody broke the shower tile in the blue bathroom, and somebody chipped another piece of tile in the bath master bath Jacuzzi, Thanks Ben

He spys on the property. So be careful how you use the electricity, don't use the windows, don't shave your legs, don't wash you hair, don't hook your computer to the TV and don't use the blinds or he will find something wrong

Very disappointing

  • 1 of 5

Hi, I stay at this house in August 2016. My vacation was perfect until it was the time to recover my security deposit that I never got even if I was meeting all the points of the contract. Very disappointed about that stay. Be careful

Excellent house!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 were very pleased with the everything that this house had to offer. The location, back patio and pool were amazing. Ben was very responsive to questions. House is in walking distance of everything. The street is very quiet.

Thanks again Ben! You will be hearing from us about next year!

Great Location, Relaxing Spot.

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults come to Lauderdale and we were very pleased with the villa condition, location and back patio seclusion. The owner was very responsive to our communications and questions. The pool was too cold to use and that was a big disappointment and we only found one wash cloth but everything else was great. Publix is 400 yards down the road as well as great dining and shops. We ran the intercostal in a friends boat and had a very balanced weekend of fun and relaxation. The beds were average and I may be more picky about bedding when I travel but it is important to a good rest. The street is very quiet and if peace and quiet is your focus then this is it and if fun is your focus then it is ideal also being so close to the beach, bars, food and shops. Thanks again Ben, we may shoot across the state again in the near future. John

Quiet and Safe Location

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4, including 2 teen aged sons, vacationed for 5 days here at Villa Oceana during spring break 2016. The home is situated on a quiet road within reasonable walking distance to the beach and fishing pier. Publix and other shopping options are even closer. Our sons also walked nightly to a close-by city park to play outdoor basketball. This beach area has several good restaurants, ice cream shops, and souvenir stores. We had good meals at Aruba's and Mulligans, and good dessert at Sloan's Ice Cream Shop.

The townhouse was spacious for the four of us. All appliances and equipment were operational, including the washer and dryer. The air conditioner worked flawlessly. Only thing lacking that we needed was a hairdryer, unless I just couldn't locate it. I picked one up at Walgreen's for $15.00. We grilled steaks one evening on the back patio and the grill worked great. The boys used the pool a couple of times, but the March water was a bit too cold for the adults. The townhouse is very clean and beautiful. Well lit with lots of windows.

We drove into Miami (about 30 minutes) one evening to see the Heat play the Nets. Nice experience for the family. We also drove to the Everglades and experienced a night time tour on an airboat where we were able to see alligators up close and personal. We took a day trip to Hollywood Beach and rented motorized bicycles to ride on their amazing paved boardwalk. All of this was in celebration of our son's 16th birthday, which was the day we saw the Heat play. It was a memorable vacation and birthday celebration. I recommend this property.
