Water View not Water Front, Nice, Clean, Town house

  • 3 of 5

This is not beach front property it is water view, the pictures give you the impression that you can walk out of the townhouse and you are at the beach but it is a short walk to the beach. The unfinished buildings are an eyesore and am sure a sore spot for the owner. There is a field you can walk across and it has a nice dock, some outdoor folding chairs would be nice for sitting there. There are two restaurants on site and a tiki bar all on the water, all were very good and are in walking distance. Bill was a great help. Some more bath towels and washcloths would help the ones there are old and is not enough for four people, toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, would be nice , at least enough to start off with since most visitors are flying we can't bring with, dish soap should be a must have even though there is a dishwasher with soap supplied there was no dish soap to hand wash items we were using everyday. This is a lovely townhouse and we did enjoy our stay.

Owner's Response: Answer to unknown. Thank you for your comments we are glad you liked the town house and enjoyed your stay, but our records do not indicate any check in to this town house on January 18. All town houses are waterfront they are located straight on the waterways/canals adjacent to the bay on a lot with a sea wall. We always supply a startup kit to our guests that include a roll of toilet paper to each bathroom, a paper towel roll to the kitchen, a couple of dishwashing tabs to the dishwashing machine, laundry tabs, bar soap and shampoo/lotion to each bathroom. The above startup kit is supplied by the cleaning company to all our town houses. Sincerely Yvonne

Great anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for making our 20th anniversary a dream vacation. My husband & I loved your townhouse. It was a great place. Nice & clean, with a fully stocked kitchen. We only left to take romantic walks on the beach, which was just a short walk from our place. Thank you again, Richard & Jane Simmons

Nice townhome, but be prepared for extra fees!

  • 2 of 5

Review #9334587 “Nice townhome, but be prepared for extra fees!”

The home itself it nice enough and pretty well kept for being a rental.

Thats where the good portion ends. This particular unit is facing a 7 year old dilapidated building, in fact the pictures of the outside of the unit shown on this listing are NOT the unit you will be staying at. The interior pics are correct though. If you click on the map, then choose satellite view, you can see the building thats an eyesore.

The gentleman who met us to give us access, was 40 mins late for our meeting time, and he gave us a personal family reason/excuse for being late, but the woman I spoke to on the phone claimed he was "with another guest" when I called to inquire why he was late. He absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke which took all evening to dissipate out of the unit.

You have to pay a substantial cleaning fee in CASH right then, but only to find out when you check out YOU are responsible for everything you would think the cleaning person was getting paid to do.

You have to remove all trash.

You have to do all the dishes.

You have to wash the sheets.

If you use the comforters, you have to pay an extra fee.

So you pay a large fee for them to let you in, and then put fresh towels and make the beds for the next guest.

This is on top of the fact, YOU have to pay for any electric you use....seriously. My bill was not huge, but it the principal, and that they hide this info in the fine print.

The resort itself is OK...but be prepared for rules, many of them. I was lucky to find a new dock thats just been built in the mangroves a few hundred feet from our unit. After I had driven around and saw no fishing signs everywhere. I rented fishing poles and bought bait from the marina and was enjoying sitting on the dock of the bay waiting for a bite when the security guard came and ran me off, telling me, "I know there is no sign, but there is no fishing here". He demanded I leave right that minute, and when I asked why the dock was built, he said "I really don't know, I realize it looks like a fishing dock, but in the month since I have been working here, there is no fishing". Clearly they don't want people on vacation here. As it turns out, the area he took me to that was designated for fishing, I was later told by the marina was ALSO a NO FISHING area.

Owner's Response: Dear Rental Guest. Thank you for your comments but there seems to be several misunderstandings. Answer on your posted review; 1.The pictures of the outside townhouses are a street view that show a row of town houses, not a particular one as they all look the same. There is also a picture of the Gate Cottage used by the Security Guards, assuming you did not believe you rented the Gate Cottage. The home has 4 balconies with different views. There is a non-ready construction at the end of the street but the balconies from the living room and master bedroom are not facing the street, they are facing the waterway & Tampa Bay. 2.Why the lady from Guest Service was unable to check you in and instead sent a replacement we have no knowledge about and we need to investigate further. 3.Reading the information on the website. Our advertising clearly states additional fees; cleaning fee $115.00 and electric usage fee. The same information is also stated on the reservation confirmation and the rental agreement that you received, signed and returned to us. 4.As all vacation homes are self-catered and don’t have daily maid service you as the renter are responsible to take care of your own trash, laundry and dishes during your stay. All beds have a comforter/bedspread and there is of course no usage charge. At checkout guests are requested to remove their household trash to the dumpster, that’s all. 5.Fishing are allowed at the 250 feet long community Fishing Pier stretching out in the bay located next to the waterfront Restaurant and Tiki Bar down at the beach plus on other locations in the community. We wish you had called us at the main office during your stay, one call could have resolved your issues. Sincerely, Visit America TG & VS Inc. Property Management Company Chris & Yvonne
