The place was very nice And confortable. Very clean also. The house does need a little maintenhance. The hallway bathroom the tiles on the bathtub needs to be replaced the are falling off and have mold around that area, water is leaking to the bottom room and will creat a problem in the long run. I urge you to fix it ASAP to avoid water damage and extensive mold on The wals. Also the bottom room needs to have an AC even if it is a wall unit. It's pretty hot down there in summer even with the fans. Everything else was great and the owner are extremely nice letting my whole family stay for the weekend.

Owner's Response: We are happy that your stay was comfortable. I do urge all travelers to communicate maintenance problems when they notice them so repairs can be made. Because we do not live in the rental house, we have no other way to know. The bathroom problem will be fixed this week between renters. Thank you for staying with us and for your kind words.

Photos don't do justice!

  • 5 of 5

This home is very nice. This is the first time using home away and we are very happy. The home was very clean, comfortable and cozy for our family of 6. The pool is crystal clear and so warm. We miss it already. The location is close to many beaches. Our favorite by far was Siesta Keys. I can't say enough about how wonderful Debra was during our stay. She was in a different Country and made sure any thing we wanted or needed was done that day or a day after. Thank you Debra. We will definitely stay if we go back to Florida. You will definitely be happy in their home.

PROPERTY IS AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

We came out to Florida for a family reunion and stayed at this property. The house is immaculate and big, with a great air conditioner, which is absolutely essential for this part of the country. Our kids enjoyed swimming in the pool on a daily basis. The rooms are big, the beds are comfortable and the family room has a huge couch for everyone to lounge on. If you're going to Palmetto, Florida, I highly recommend renting this property!!

Nice home that needs TLC

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home in Palmetto, however we did not use the pool area because it is a mess. The inside of the house is nice and just needs a good cleaning. It was comfortable, nice beds and nice comfortable family room. Some of the dining chairs were wobbly and needed the legs tightened which we did with our fingers (that's how loose they were) because we did not have a screwdriver. With a little TLC this home would be great. It is in a very convenient location. It is close to stores and shopping and restaurants. Beautiful beaches at Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island are worth the 1/2 hour drive (that is without traffic). We did not use the pool area. It is in need of a good power washing. The cage has mildew all over it. The waterfall has a visible mess behind it of a pile of concrete/sand mess that needs to be cleaned up. Also in need of nice pool lounge chairs. There were 2 ok lounge chairs but there were 5 of us staying in the house. We actually went to another pool and spent time at the beach. We did not sit out on the deck either because the floor boards were black with mildew and deck furniture was very dirty. So would I recommend this property? Yes... if some much needed TLC is taken this would be a great choice.

Owner's Response: The exterior of the house has been pressure washed and all the comments addressed. We are always open to improvements and can respond immediately to any guest's request so it is a shame that we were not contacted during the visit.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of 7. The area has a variety of options for families, but our goal was to relax! The kids used the pool daily - very nice pool/patio. We used the grill a few times when Florida family visited. Property is in a nice neighborhood we were comfortable walking in. The kitchen has everything!! We did not eat out but a couple of times because of the convenience of the kitchen. The downstairs was private & the bath was convenient for use when lounging by the pool. The upstairs deck was a favorite for our toddler who loves to be outside as well as adults enjoying the screened area looking over the pool! The owner was a phone call or email away always with a prompt response. We also appreciated the WiFi & folder with area information. The garage made loading/unloading nice in out of the weather. Thank you Debra for a wonderful stay!!

Map

The home is in a quiet residential area where residents enjoy their own private boat ramp. You will have an'at home' feeling while enjoying the convenience of a central location. We are near to Sarasota which abounds with activities but primary are the beaches--an easy 17-20 mile drive for miles of white sandy beaches with no parking fees including the #1 beach in the U.S.--Siesta Key Beach. Sarasota has theater, museums, historical sites, restaurants, festivals and events of all kinds. Sarasota was recently named #1 arts destination for a city of its size by American Style Magazine and Bradenton #2. St. Petersburg was named #1 for its size and is right over the Skyway Bridge. During the winter season you can enjoy opera, ballet, the symphony and polo. There are golf couses all over in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. Boats, kayaks or jet skis can be rented or book a sunset cruise on the Manatee River, just 5 minutes away. You can shop at a nearby outlet mall or upscale St. Armand's Circle or the boutiques in downtown Sarasota and Bradenton. St. Petersburg has the spectacular Dali Museum and shops, restaurants and other museums. Tampa has Lowry Park Zoo, Florida Aquarium, Busch Gardens amusement park and Adventure Island water park. Disney World west gate is just 1 hour 45 minutes away. Legoland and its new waterpark are just 1 hour 35 minutes away.
