Great place for a wedding reception

  • 5 of 5

We have really enjoyed the house. It's been a perfect size for our group of seven, and the kids have had a lot of fun in the pool.

I've especially enjoyed the wood floors and fixtures upstairs - they remind me of my grandparents' home. And the AC is nice and cold, and much appreciated.

I have a couple of thoughts about a few things you could do to improve the experience for your guests:

We've really had a nice stay here, and we love the layout of the house - there are plenty of spaces for us to be together, and (also important) plenty of spaces for us to be apart! Thank you so much for your hospitality!

I hope you have a great weekend!

Brenda

The weekend that my family and I stayed at this beautiful house was priceless. The house had everything we needed and more. It is located in the best area. Close to awesome restaurants, the beach, and other fun activities. The house was very clean. The whole experience was exactly what I wanted. I wanted that tropical pool home feel and the house is wonderfully decorated to follow the experience that you want from a pool home getaway.

No Stars - Unhappy in Maryland

  • 1 of 5

I rented this property for Thanksgiving Holiday. The truth about this property is the pictures are not accurate the house has been neglected. The property was not clean or well maintained. The kitchen had dirty dishes in the cabinets. The owner said that other clients put dirty dishes in cabinets. He said he had cleaning people to clean the house so he should have asked them to clean the dishes to. I had to decide which dishes i was willing to cook in, borrowed the rest from my daughters house. I sat down to relax in the green room looked down and found feces on rug beside the chair didn't bring any pets. I traveled over a thousand miles and paid these people a lot of money to be their maid. The pool area has covering that the screening is flapping in the wind allowing debris to collect in the pool. The railing to go in the pool is not connecting to the concrete this could cause someone to maybe cut or injure themselves. There are numerous issue going on in this property. There is water damage in the kitchen, cabinets separating from the ceiling . Furnishings should be replaced because they dirty and stained. I could go on and on with the issues in this property. I would not recommend this property to anyone or these owners who are not being honest about their property. Read the contract well says he will charge your card $500 if you write a disparaging review.

Owner's Response: Anybody who seriously critiques this review will notice that this is not an objective review, but a retaliation over a dispute of being denied a discount upon finding some dishes which the previous guest returned to the cupboard dirty. I offered to send the maid over to take care of all issues, but this was turned down. They went on to exaggerate or fabricate issues. For example, even though these guests did not bring a pet they did have a quest who brought a dog and didn’t clean up after it. The pictures in our add are accurate and up to date. We maintain a staff of maids and a maintenance man to address any and all needs of our guests.

Lovely Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family had a reunion at in Gulfport,Florida this past month. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay.The price was very reasonable.

The property is lovely and very spacious.with 4 big bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. It has an old time charm even with the modern remodeling. The property was is close to everything and the beach was only about 3 miles away The owners attended any and all of our needs in an efficient, timely manner.

We highly recommend staying there to anyone with a large group for at least 6 people As I stated you cannot beat the price.
