Guestbook comments from the owner

The guest move in and were micromanaging the house taking charge of the all the services like pool service,lawn care,and general maintenance constantly looking for things that were not up their standards.

After exchanging 60 emails with the guest.I understood that no matter what i did trying to make the guest happy it will not be possible to keep the guests happy.

The guest stated to me that he was micromanaging the house he rented from someone else last year and the owners were bad.

I would think twice before renting to this guest again.

Great place for our family vacation.

  • 4 of 5

Our family with 2 adult children and their significant others stayed here very comfortably. The home was very clean and conveniently located. One bed was a little uncomfortable but otherwise it was well suited for us.

Retreat Home

  • 2 of 5

The home is very spacious, immaculately clean and nicely stocked with every item a house may need. We did however get the feeling that we were being watched, the renter does not have the option of changing the temperature inside or outside of the home, the pool water is set at a locked temperature as is the AC within the home. There is no option to open the home's windows should you feel warm in the middle of the night when the AC doesn't feel like its cooling. We also received two emails the first day regarding amount of cars coming and going from the property and then followed the second day by a neighbor claiming that a car parked in a completely vacant home needed to be moved as well. If you don't mind constant control of pool water temperature, home AC temperature and parking at or near the property then this is a fabulous retreat.

Owner's Response: I rented the house to Maribel for the weekend for 6 adults. After they arrived there were 6 cars parked in front of the house, 2 on the lawn literally on the grass and other cars at neighboring homes without the neighbor’s permission. Obviously this was not a weekend gateway for a little rest. The guests decided to have a party at the house and invite as many guests as possible. There had to be at least 20 people in the house that where constantly coming in and out.When you have that many people you get noticed. The door to the pool as well as the front of the house was open therefore the AC system was not able to keep up cooling the house. As far as the ac I had it checked by my ac service and they found no issues with the system in addition every bedroom has a ceiling fans. The pool is well maintained and during the winter season heated to 85 degrees. When I contacted the guest about the situation she lied to me and said that everything is ok there is nothing going on and she will remove the cars from the lawn. My house is located in quiet residential neighborhood .The rules for prospective guest clearly state No Parties or any kind of Events are allowed. The guest should have been evicted for not following these rules ,but I trusted Maribel and gave them the benefit of a doubt. My house is a vacation house not a party rental.

A great "Golden" place to stay in Naples Park with many beach options

  • 5 of 5

This was an especially great place to stay because we could have our Golden Retriever with us. It is in walking distance to Vanderbildt Beach (no pets). Very short drive to Delnor-Wiggins Beach (dogs allowed on park trails).The house comes with a park pass. It also is not far from Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs (no pets). There is also an off leash beach at Lover's Key. Our favorite beach where a dog is allowed to walk the beach on leash is Fort Myers Beach, about 30 minutes away. The house is comfortable and spacious and provides everything needed for an enjoyable stay. Our grandsons especially enjoyed the pool. Having rented vacation homes for many years, it is especially noteworthy that everything (appliances, washer/dryer, kitchen and bathroom fixtures) worked perfectly. There was a generous supply of beach chairs and pool toys too. We felt that this rental was a terrific find. Also very satisfied with Len's very quick response to questions in the application process.

Naples Park rental

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for clean, well-appointed rental in Naples, this is it. Tile floors throughout made the the place feel super-clean and cool. A large, well-equipped kitchen, ceiling fans, tidy bathrooms, lots of TVs, great Wi-Fi and a Nest thermostat that kept the place at a comfortable temperature. Pool was a little chilly, but clean and refreshing. Place came stocked with towels (even paper towels!) and had a washer/drier which would come in handy for longer stays. Owner was very responsive before our arrival and made sure we had the instructions to gain entry. The only thing you need to bring is shampoo and soap, otherwise the place has everything you need. THANKS

Great house with big pool in a lovely neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The property was even better than expected. Kitchen was fully equipped. We even made smoothies, popcorn, and baked a cake. We had absolutely no problems. Len was a pleasure to deal with. Very quick response! I loved that outdoor area was completely covered by net. I always ate there with no bugs. There are enough bedding for everybody. We had 3 families in the house with kids and everyone felt comfortable and not crowded.

Beach is just 15 minutes away and we actually loved walking there and back. Someone would come with the car just to bring all the stuff and you can park for $10 entire day (you can leave and come back too) behind a little grocery store. Beach is amazing so as sunsets there.

Grocery stores are within 5-10 minutes drive - anything you'd like: Costco, Trader Joe's, Walmart, Walgreens, Whole Foods. Even a beautiful mall with movie theaters within a 5 minute drive. Great location!

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

Thank you for allowing us to stay and enjoy beautiful sunny Florida.
