Very Disappointed

  • 3 of 5

I arrived to one of the Villas (The Palm) to find that the steps to the porch were cracked. Upon entry, the place smelled. When I looked up the ceilings in the bedrooms was peeling and falling down. There were spaces between the ceiling wood panels We found pieces of the ceiling on the floor by the night table. In one of the bedrooms, was a 2 inch roach crawling on the ceiling over the bed. The yard was creepy looking and unkept. The villa faces a parking lot and there was major road construction in the surrounding area. Both were an eye sore for sitting on the porch. the kitchen and bathroom were clean and well equipped. The beds were comfortable except for the view of the peeling ceiling. We were shocked by the view from the windows - peeling paint and the washing machine. The online pictures were very deceiving. What we paid for a nightly stay, we could have stayed in two separate rooms at a hotel with breakfast included. We could have stayed at channel side and taken the trolley to see Ybor City. Don't recommend this villa to anyone especially our friends and family.

Owner's Response: We are more disappointed! Disappointed we had a unsatisfied guest and a guest that was truthful and honest. For anyone interested in a wonderful & unique experience please read on. We have been offering these historic homes to travelers for over 10 years and this is our first bad review. Explanations of every issue are below but they will not help our previous guest which we feel terrible about. These are NOT excuses just explanations. These homes are over 100 years old and we are currently repairing the exterior wood siding & repainting. Unfortunately we can only work on these homes when they are vacant so we do not disrupt our guests and we are always full. The inside of the home is entirely wood and we had moisture from our air conditioning unit in the attic that made the paint peal. This is being repaired right now. We have regular pest control but we are in Florida and cannot control 100% The construction mentioned is actually major road & sidewalk beautification that will link us directly with the entertainment district with wonderful walkability and bike lanes. This will be complete later this year and be a great addition to the experience of staying with us. We do disclose the construction situation to everyone before anyone stays with us. This is a vibrant area, alive with activity and is not for everyone. We offer an experience unlike anything else.

My son and I have stayed in the area for a number of years and I have to say it's the nicest one all round.We rented the Cigar House. We felt comfortable the minute we we walked in the door. Everything that was stated on line and it was even better. The location was perfect, house spotless and the service impeccable.

Incredible historical home, great experience

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely charming and beautifully decorated. We stayed here while attending a wedding- me, my mother, and granddaughter each had our privacy. The hosts brough Cuban coffee and made sure we were settled in. The house was so lovely that many of our kin dropped by to see or to spend time with Grandma sitting on the porch rockers. We got a feel for Ybor City and a way of life that's long gone.
