We loved the house, its comfortable and attractive furnishings, its location and the associated pleasures; beach access and temporary membership at the Cedars Tennis Club. We were disappointed by the lack of follow-up by the VacationRentals staff on the few items about which we asked for help; a gaping hole in the screen around the pool which was not repaired during the entire week of our stay; additional placemats and dining chairs (the house is advertised as sleeping 8- we were 5 but there were chairs for four, placemats for four, etc.). Generally we loved it.
We were extremely pleased with our stay at Eb and Phiff's Place. The home was extremely spacious, comfortable, and clean.
The private beach for the neighborhood was only a 5-10 minute walk and the membership at a club further up the key was used repeatedly by both of us. I felt like the management staff bent over backwards to ensure that our stay was a memorable one. We had a servicing need for the refrigerator that was resolved within one day's time. The best part of renting this home was the location along the canal and having the pool out back in the lanai. My husband spent hour after hour on the lanai reading while I sat by the canal waiting to see dolphins and, to my surprise, I did! The surroundings were breath taking.
We had a few wonderful meals at the Dry Dock Grill only a mile away which we would highly recommend. More importantly, we would recommend a stay at Eb and Phiffs to friends or family anytime!!
