Beautiful view! However, there are a few things that made me not give the house a higher rating, to begin with the water here STINKS like rotten eggs, (not to mention that it is slimy) you cannot drink, brush your teeth, shower, nor cook with it, it smells so terribly that we all had to buy extra gallons of water to cook, and shower, if you decide to use it be prepared to have a very smelly hair, body and house for a good 2 hours. The first morning we spent there we woke up to no water, apparently there are lizzards and little insects that get in the way and cause for the water to stop running that's what we were told by the gentlemen that went later on that day. The management is very attentive and replies extremely quick before your getaway, but after your stay, good luck, i have sent Martina approximately 3-4 emails with not a single response, also if you go and leave a clean house, bbq, clean linens and towels hoping to get your deposit back, DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! They do not return it! They keep it! No matter how clean you leave the property.
Our stay was very comfortable. The home was very clean and had all of the kitchen items we needed. Our favorite part was the pool and hot tub. The lanai area is beautiful. Only two small things to mention; as others have stated the water did have a strong sulfur smell but there is filtered water in the kitchen and while we managed to use the outdoor grill it could use some repair. Overall a great experience! The owners were very responsive. We would definitely recommend this home and would return again ourselves!
We stayed for 2 weeks and the house suited our needs perfectly. Quiet neighborhood, close to town but far enough away to be private. The house is well stocked with an abundance of kitchen items for your use. The pool and hot tub are beautiful but you do need help getting the hot tub to work. The heating is extra and not in the contract or anywhere else until you speak with the property manager. There is a very strong sulfur smell when you run the water. We did contact the manager about it and they sent someone out to look at it because there is a water conditioning system for the house. The only thing that helped with the smell was that the more it was ran the better it was.
This house is set up perfectly for a vacation house. Each of the 3 bedrooms is en suite. The master and one of the others lead directly to the lanai pool/hot tub area. It's at the end of a cul-de-sac and very private. It's not within reasonable walking distance to anything, but that wasn't a problem for us. Our kids don't care for the beach, so a 1/2 drive once during the week reminded them why they prefer a pool and great set up like this place. All in all it was, like I titled the review - a nearly perfect vacation home. The - and I'm not exaggerating ONLY draw back that we found was the water. The sulfur was literally overwhelming and nauseating. My kids refused to use the showers and my pre teen daughter was dry heaving the one time she considered it. I suppose it's one of the drawbacks one has to deal with being at sea level with little to no soil in which water can be filtered; however, I have to believe there is some kind of treatment available. Since there was a drinking water filter, the nasty water was not a deal-breaker. With that single item being the only potentially negative thing I could say, I wouldn't let that stop you from renting this place - it was FANTASTIC and exactly as advertised.
The home was exactly as described. Very open, airy and comfortable. There were a few minor issues to be corrected and Martina, the property manager was exceptionally responsive in aresolving these. The kitchen is quite well stocked with flatware, glasses, china and cookware, requiring less dish washing..though there is a good dishwasher. The water purification tank in the kitchen was delightful, since the Fla sulphur water is less than tasty. The pool is quite lovely as well as the spa, the weather was quite cool so we could not enjoy the pool. However just sitting beside it in the sunshine with a book was most relaxng. A good , remote , private home for total relaxation. Some of the major appliances are a little "dated", but serviceable. Overall quite a nice experience. PE Blairsville, GA
The home was exactly as advertised, very clean, and a perfect location for the family event we had to attend in LaBelle. The pool is an excellent size for a weekend get away and the kids thoroughly enjoyed that aspect. The appliances and cookware/serving ware were all accessible and easy to find. The outdoor space was lovely and the sunrise coming over the water was fantastic.
It was unclear that we had to plan ahead for the heating of the hot tub, but the owner responded within a reasonable time and it was up and running fairly quickly.
Recommendations for the owner:
Supplies to suggest renters bring: soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, paper towels
A "checkout" check list would be great. Meaning, it wasn't clear if what we should do (if anything) with sheets and towels, dishes, etc. While we did makes sure that all the dishes were done, we just weren't sure what to do about linens. That would be a great "add" to your binder for future renters.
Thank you for a great trip!! Your rental made the family event much easier for many of us! If we were in the location regularly, we would definitely rent it again!
The sunsets over the nature preserve are spectacular to watch from your private pool area
