Don't waste your $$

  • 1 of 5

Property is lovely on the surface but once you settle in you realize you've been taken. House is filthy and flea infested. We woke up itchy and confused. Then I saw hundreds and hundreds of fleas in the bed. The clusters were so huge at 1st I thought something from the comforter was shedding. Then I saw them moving and jumping!

Kitchr is poorly stocked. Linens are threadbare. We had several problems and no one would respond without multiple calls over several days. Actually tv not working took 2 weeks before s response. Ran out of propane and couldn't cook for 2 days before they replied. Construction going on beside us and in back. We couldn't sit at the pool because of the noise and dust. Construction noise woke us every morning at 7. The had to be aware before they rented that this was the situation and never informed us

They deducted $450 from out sec deposit to heat the pool. We never used the pool and we're not aware that it was being heated and we were being charged. There is nothing in the rental agreement about this. We are filing a claim with the Small Claims Court

They nickeled and dimed us on quite a few things

We rented after that in Sarasota and had none of these issues. They went above and beyond to insure our satisfaction

There are lots of rental properties in Florida that are extraordinary. Unfortunately, this is not one of them

Renter beware

  • 1 of 5

Renter beware. Property is not what it appears. After the initial impression that it is lovely , you realize that it is not what it seems. Home is filthy It is completely flea infested. We woke up covered in fleas. I still gag remembering. Although we were told that fleas are a huge issue in FL. But we did not have this problem at the next property we rented

House is poorly stocked. Management is unresponsive. We ran out of propane and couldn't cook. It took 2 days for management to address

And the final icing on the cake , $700 was deducted from our sec deposit for various utilities that we were unaware of and are not part of our rental contract. We are filing a claim in small claims court.

Meget pen bolig!

  • 5 of 5

Vi var 4 voksne og 4 barn som tilbrakte 14 nydelige dager i dette huset. Tiden gikk altfor fort. Med 4 soverom og 4 bad var dette en perfekt bolig for oss. Boligen tilfredsstilte våre forventninger utfra beskrivelse og standart. Huset var stort, rent og veldig pent. I andre etasje var det en stue med en stor behagelig sofa et mindre "spillebord" soverom med altan, garderobe og bad. Ellers var resten på plan 1. Huset lå i ett trygt strøk med vennlige naboer og vi følte oss veldig trygge. Bassenget ble fort varmet opp med gass og var en passelig størrelse for våre 4 barn i alder 3,6,8 og 12 år, til og med for oss voksne. Med to sykler i garasjen hadde vi noen fine turer til butikkene. Publix(litt dyrere) lå bare et par km unna og Walmart ca 6 km unna. Ellers var det en fin lekeplass i nærheten og marinaen var også bare en liten gåtur unna. Mike svarte godt og raskt på spørsmålene våre, og agenten Ingrid kom innom med mange tips og var veldig behjelpelig. Vi hadde biler som vi anser som et must på et slikt sted:-)

Kjøkkenet var stort og flott og hadde alt vi kunne trenge.

Vaskerommet var stort, men syntes ikke vaskemaskinen var tilstrekkelig god til å rengjøre plaggene. Bolig tilfredsstilte våre forventninger utfra flotte bilder og anbefales!

Vi var på Sanibel, Fort Myers Beach og Naples. Alle strendene var nydelige men de to sistnevnte var nok våre favoritter. Ellers er det mange kjøpesentre og outlet rundt i nærheten. Anbefaler Sanibel outlets, miromar(naples) og Eddison Mall.

Wunderschönes Haus in Top Lage

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren eine Gruppe von 6 Personen über Weihnachten 2016.

Das Haus ist sehr schön eingerichtet und bietet alles, was benötigt wird.

Es ist, wie beschrieben, ausgestattet mit 4 Schlafzimmern und vier Bädern.

Einzig ein Schlafzimmer und ein Bad liegen nicht beieinander. Das ist das Poolbad.

Das dazugehörende Schlafzimmer liegt am anderen Ende des Hauses.

Das Haus selbst ist sehr geräumig. Alle Räume bieten genügend Platz.

Für amerikanische Verhältnisse ist nur der Aussenbereich etwas beengt.

Es ist ein Tisch für 6 Personen vorhanden jedoch nur Platz für 2 Liegen.

Es standen zwei Fahrräder zur Benutzung zur Verfügung. Das war sehr angenehm.

Auch liegt das Haus in Gehweite von Cape Harbour.

Der einzige große Nachteil ist der mit Propangas beheizte Pool.

Auf Grund der Gasheizung ist er zwar sehr schnell warm, aber am Ende

des Urlaubes kommt dann die große Gasrechnung. Leider ist das auf keiner

Buchungsseite vermerkt.

Der Kontakt zum Property Manager war sehr angenehm.

Bei Fragen wurde uns schnell geantwortet.

Alles in allem ist das Haus empfehlenswert.
