Toller Pool

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt in Ihrem Haus. Die Lage ist perfekt, die schönsten Strände sind in wenigen Minuten erreichbar, Siesta Key und Nokomis Beach. Der große Pool ist ein Traum. Wlan war einfach zu aktivieren, funktionierte sogar am Pool. Mit der Solardecke konnten wir eine Temperatur von 26 Grad konstant halten. Die Betreuung vor Ort war super. Vielen Dank:)

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house in March 2016. It was more than adequate for our needs with two 4-year-olds and up to 6 adults. The housekeeper contacted us to see if we needed help and the owner responded quickly to any concerns when I emailed her.

The spacious layout allows for some solitude even when others are involved in more boisterous ventures. We had no problem following the instructions provided for entering and securing the property or operating the TV and stereo. The internet worked very well and we were able to use Chromecast and a Blu-ray player we took with us.

The pool is well-maintained and very large, unlike many Florida rentals. In the time we were there, we used about $500 worth of propane, but it is necessary to understand that the valves controlling the flow of hot water to the spa and pool must be adjusted manually. Heating the entire volume of water to spa temperature would result in a very large propane bill. We had the spa at 100 and the pool at 84 and used the solar blanket at night much the same as we would do at home. We appreciated the locks on all doors to keep the little ones safe.

The surrounding area is very quiet and virtually everything we needed was readily available without fighting Sarasota's crazy spring traffic. We walked the streets regularly and appreciated the slower pace. It's definitely a family neighbourhood.

It was great to have access to the garage for one of our vehicles.

Although the property could use updating in some respects, if it had been available, we would have been happy to reserve it for next March.

Beautiful Pool and Water Fall----------BUT

  • 2 of 5

We would like to say that the surrounding area is very safe and the neighbors are friendly, Upon arrival the housekeeper was very helpful as the owner only gave us the code to enter and alarm code. There was no information on the TV or stereo and none on the pool and spa, The next day after our arrival we waited until noon for the pool cleaner to explain operations. The down side of the pool is that if it needs to be heated-look at $5,000 in gas that the renter would pay. She never told us how much it would cost-hence no pool use. There were a number of items that were wrong inside the house. The outdated stove oven does not work properly-lights needed replacing -no gas in the grill tank-new refrigerator water filter needed replacing among a few items.

The worst thing that happened was the owner tried to blame us on the carpet stains that were being hidden under the sofas. also stains in an outside rug by the pool. it was a cool February so we never used the outside dining. She will try and rebut this, but this is realty. The house needs major vegetation trimming and stains removed from the exterior. The interior is not much better as it needs a complete paint job as the walls and trim are marked and dirty.

our family has spent 2 years at this lovely home. We were there for March and April in 2013 and March and April in 2014. During that time I had guests that included my adult grandchildren and my 104 y/o Aunt. The home is close to everything, good shopping, great food, easy to go to the beach or a cultural event in Sarasota. The home is well described, nicely decorated the pictures are true to life. The home is clean and well maintained. The owner is a lovely person and we had gotten to know one another over the time we rented. I would recommend this home to anyone and certainly to my friends and relatives. You will enjoy Bently's just down the road, they have great food at Morgans resturent and a wonderful Tiki bar outside at the pool.

nice house but..........

  • 3 of 5

we stayed at this lovely house for 2 months. the house is beautifully laid out for a vacation house and guests and entertaining. all the rooms except one open onto the pool with sliding doors that open the entire wall. the pool and hot tub and waterfall are beautiful as well.

had the house been clean and maintained, it would be a perfect vacation home.

however,,,,,while the inside of the house appeared clean on first glance, it did not take long to see that the whole house needed a thorough cleaning. the outside needed cleaning up as well. the lawn was mowed only once in the 2 months we were there.

only half of the vanity lights in the main bathroom were working and the kitchen lights worked only sporadically due to an electrical problem that the owner would not repair while we were there. also the fire place was not usable, which would have been nice for 2 weeks of cold nights.

the pool is able to be heated but it is an extra charge for the propane gas and is very expensive. the mechanisms to heat the hot tub and to keep the hot tub from draining was very confusing.

this house was not ready for rental.
