Sorry Al- All the reviews we read mentioned what a nice guy Al was and it was true, hes very nice. However, the rental was far from nice. First of all the home is on a busy road. There is a very large condo complex next to the rental and all of the residents speed in and out all night with music blasting. This may have bothered us more if we had been sleeping but the beds are so old and uncomfortable we were not getting much sleep anyway. All the windows and sliding doors have old vertical blinds and EVERY time you open or adjust them several will fall off. The gas burners on the stove top dont work. Well one does and the other 3 do not. There garbage disposal has no blades so the plumbing has rotting food in it and it stinks. You have to be careful not to let any little bits of food go down the drain.The disposal side wont drain but a toilet plunger will fix it temporarily. When using the shower in the master bath I had to use my body weight to turn the water on and off, my wife simply couldn't use it. If it rains do not go under the awning. The gutters have not been cleaned in years so the water collects on top and the whole roof sags and creaks and soon it will collapse. The house is full of geckos but this may be a good thing as it keeps the roach population in check. Oh and we found a used hypodermic needle in the front yard. This is not a complete list of my complaints about the property but just the things that stand out the most. Al is a nice man but Id rather spend a week in an army barracks then spend one more night in that house!
My wife and I stayed in this lovely villa for 4 weeks from mid September until mid October. The weather was not too good for the first two weeks but the villa was great. It was spotlessly clean and tidy and very roomy as there was only the two of us. Al and Eileen were very friendly and with their little dog Buddy were vey helpful, also included in this was their grandson Mike and his young lady. We had a very nice relaxing time at the villa and god willing may be back next year A lot of the kitchen equipment has been updated from the pictures and all was there for you to use. The pool was fab and fishing from the dock was very good entertainment.
We loved everything!!! Location was great - Very clean inside and out - Pool was great! Spacious, Accommodating - We will be back!!!
We had a blast staying here. The home is spotless and very spacious. (appliances are updated from what you see in the photos) The best part for our family was outside. Our family spent many hours in the pool and out on the floating dock. Thanks to Al and Eileen, and of course to Buddy, for providing such a comfortable and absolutely fun place for our family to spend the week!
We had a wonderful time staying here.The location was great for beaches and shopping, the house and pool were excellent. We saw dolphins in the gulf and enjoyed local restaurants.The owners live next door and by end of stay we considered them family. We look forward to staying again this winter.Thanks Al,Eileen and Buddy for a great time.
We had an awesome stay and sure enjoyed the owners living next door. Great accomodations, no issues and a fishing trip just added to the fun we had. We will definitely stay again. Thanks Al and Eileen
