Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you again for a wonderful stay at your property! Our family had a great time on our holiday adventure! We were surprised at the vast, open size of this home! We had everything we could want and then some. We found management and maintenance staff to be very knowledgeable and helpful with any questions we asked and they made sure our every need was met. This was a five star stay for us! We will be returning in the future for a stay at this tropical oasis!

Good vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a really good time in Holiday, Florida. The home was plenty big for our group, and there were plenty of towels and washcloths, and an enormous amount of beach towels for us to use. Absolutely loved going to Howard Park Beach which was really close. They had stand up paddleboards and kayaks to rent, and it was not nearly as crowded as going to Clearwater Beach. The only real issue during our visit was getting the dryer to dry our laundry, especially beach towels. I called Beverly, and her brother came out to check it out. He cleaned out the laundry hose behind the dryer, and it helped, but only a little. A bigger concern...I have been back for two months, and still don't have my deposit back yet.

The house was large enough to accommodate multiple families. Was a nice bonus that there was a crib.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fun family vacation. Enough things close bye to do and see. The kids loved the pool. The picture in the ad is deceiving. It made the pool look much larger than it was. However we had young kids so perfect for them. Especially the little shallow step down area. The outside grounds could be picked up a little better. Safty hazards with really young ones. We picked up a lot of cigarette buts around the pool. The pool instuctions are confusing so ask for help. We would reccomend to others in the future. Thanks for the fun vacation.

Really nice house, needs some maintenance

  • 4 of 5

First off, the property manager is very attentive and immediately responds to any issues.

The house is actually beautiful and has a great amount of space.

It is in need of some major maintenance (cracked tiles, warped floors, broken chairs, rusted grill).

I was a little disappointed when we arrived to find cigarette butts on the deck outside. The grill unusable and the dishes in the cabinets all needed a good cleaning. As soon as I brought it to the attention of the property manager, she was immediately there to clean the grill and replace the baffles. She also picked up the cigarette butts. I rewashed all the dishes before we used them.

One thing to be aware of is that 1 bedroom is actually a dining room converted so don't anticipate being able to have much privacy in that room. It has doors and drapes, but just not very private and gets a lot of house noise when people are in the kitchen, game room or family room.

Also, be aware that 1 bedroom is actually an extension of the closet. It has bunk beds that are really not suitable for anyone over 50 lbs.

That being said, there was an air mattress available as well as several couches and space to put people.

The bedrooms are very nice and roomy. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of bathrooms for a large group.

The pool/hot tub continues to have issues. I read about them in previous reviews and the owners of the house still have not addressed them. We were able to get the hot tub to heat on the last day we were there. They were clean and maintained but just not warm enough to swim when the weather is less then 75 degrees. We were told that it is very expensive to heat the hot tub and if they continued to use the gas to heat it, the house would run out and not be able to heat the water for showers and stuff. It would be helpful if renters are made aware of the restriction so they do not anticipate being able to use them.

My full security deposit was refunded immediately after my stay (within 48 hours).

Again, I want to state that the property manager I felt went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. She is great to work with and I do not believe the lack of maintenance is necessarily her fault.

For the cost of this house, I would definitely rent again knowing a few of these things in advance. I think it would benefit the owners to 1, do a little better job with maintenance and 2, be a little more honest in the advertising so that people know exactly what they are getting.

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

Me and some close friends had a great time at this property for Me and another friends bday. We travel to different places annually for our bday. The house is beautiful and besides a few hiccups we encountered that were taken care of we had a great time. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and to also be together. The backyard was beautiful and the wildlife flying in and out were awesome. Thanks Beverly for being a phone call away.

Not All That Great

  • 2 of 5

We stayed here with 5 other couples. Let me start by saying the house is a haul from Tampa airport. Here are the positives - the first floor is very comfortable. The living room is large with a huge screen TV. The kitchen is also very nice. It was easy to serve meals. The master bedroom looked very nice. The game room has a pool table which was nice. The pool area is landscaped beautifully. There are three bedrooms upstairs and they were nice as well. The bathrooms also were good and there was always hot water. The negatives - the house needs a lot of maintenance! There are a bank of lights in the kitchen that were shorted out. Two lights out of four in one of the bedrooms upstairs had burned out lights. One bathroom fan does not work. My wife and I stayed in a room with bunk beds. The bottom bunk had a box spring for a mattress. I had a cockroach crawl on me just as I was going to sleep. It was not the first and only cockroach we saw. The pool never got warm. I will cut the owners a little slack because the air temperature never got above 73 but still we had no use for the pool or hot tub. The air filters are filthy. I have no idea when they were last changed but you will notice them pretty easily in the vents in the living room. There were 3 spoons in the drawer. We had to buy plastic spoons. We have stayed at several VRBO's, many far cheaper than this one, that were much nicer. It is not easy finding large houses for 12 people but I can't recommend this one for the price.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your input, it is greatly appreciated as it is easy to miss items in need of attention with the high volume of guests we host. We have maintenance staff available to address any issues during a guest stay but we are unable to resolve them if the guests don't let us know. The short in the kitchen was repaired immediately upon our discovery. Light bulbs have to be checked weekly as there are over a hundred in the home and unfortunately we cannot control when they will exhaust themselves however we do keep extras in the laundry room or are always happy to come change them for our guests. We have monthly interior and exterior extermination but it is difficult to guarantee no bugs in Florida as guests tend to enjoy keeping the french doors open so they may enjoy out beautiful climate. The home has hepa filters which are changed quarterly according to manufacturers instructions. When checking the silverware drawer there were over a dozen spoons in the tray so we are not sure as to why only 3 could be located during your stay but our apologies. It is our goal to insure a wonderful stay and experience for all of our guests and always encourage them to let us know if they have any issues so they can be addressed immediately. The home can sleep 20 people comfortably but the down side to that is the amount of traffic that comes through. It's a bargain at that price as hotels to house that many would cost far more. We hope you will consider staying with us again in the future!

Nice get away.

  • 4 of 5

10 buddies from around the country settled in to celebrate our 50th birthdays.

Home was nice and spacious. The pool and somewhat warm jacuzzi was nice.

We enjoyed nearby bars and restaurants Captain Jacks and Rusty Bellies Waterfront Grill.

Close to grocery and liquor store.

Drove down to Clearwater Beach about a 45 minute drive.

We would recommend!
