About Melissa McCarthy
I am a French teacher and a business consultant for 2 local companies. I grew up and currently live in St. John's, Newfoundland and take care of renting this property for my parents. It was a vacation spot growing up for my family and now that we are all grown my parents only stay there once a year. I spent a lot of time in this property growing up and it is more beautiful and homey than the pictures give way. My family and I are hospital and friendly people and are hoping to share this location and all its adventure with you all! I speak English and French, please contact me for any more details!

Warm weather retreat
Location is convenient to shopping, dining and activities. Enjoyed the warm Florida sun around the pool with friendly neighbors. Lots of golf available in the surrounding area. Outlet shopping is good also. Don't miss Maxwell Groves for orange ice cream! CCC museum at Hammock State Park was very interesting.
Cozy villa great for a winter getaway.
Thank you Jennifer, you guys were wonderful thoughtful guests. We appreciate all your comments and have made arrangements to update the minor fixes you suggested.
We used this property as a base to visit family in central Florida, friends on the gulf coast and to visit the theme parks near Orlando. It had two king bedrooms, each with its own bath and it also had a convenient washer and dryer. This worked out well for our purposes. Although we did not use them, there is plenty of golf nearby. It is a quiet area, but there are plenty of restaurants and stores very close. There are a couple of fun restaurants right on Lake Jackson (Don Jose and Sunset Grill). The owner is very responsive and helpful.
Older but nice
The property is nicely located with easy access to the main thoroughfare. Quiet community. The interior could have used a little more cleaning prior to our arrival. We also noted some of the lights were not working, along with the bedroom TV. The space was more than adequate, and the access to the pool was just a few steps out the back door...very nice!
Thanks guys, you were wonderful guests.
What a difference a year makes, Did not enjoy this stay
We booked this condo as we had last year for a two-week stay. Things had gone well the previous year so we expected as much this trip. When we arrived we were greeted at the door by a large Wasp nest complete with wasps. After we managed to get inside ..we found some spray. We had to buy more. Got the nest taken down after some time. We were horrified to find the place dirty and not in good shape for guests. The oven isn't something I would want to cook in...dirty with a frying pan,and mixing bowl left in the oven with the decaying food still in it.
The kitchen sink was leaking and someone had placed a pizza pan and metal tumbler underneath to catch the dripping water. The floors were not swept, the dining table had food hardened on it. The kitchen light came on and off at will. Some dishes left in the sink, the microwave was dirty as was the refrigerator with food in it and not wiped out The coffee pot had been used but left with coffee and used grounds inside it. Had not been cleaned and readied for new guests.
The silverware drawer was full of unclean utensils. Killed 5 roaches.
The dining room ceiling fan did not work as well as a living room lamp. The beds were without clean bedding and the comforters haven't been washed in a very long time. We just removed them..got sheets from the dryer and made our beds, without comfortors, We brought our own pillows..their's are filthy.
We tried calling the owners without much luck ..so we called the realtor and asked what to do. Yes after we got there we see the place is up for sale ..maybe that's why there is no interest in preparing well for arriving paying guests? We decided we had no choice but to make do since so many family members had planned on our gathering for months, We couldn't let everyone down and just leave. So we rolled up our sleeves and spent Monday and half of Tuesday cleaning the place, sanitizing and washing soured smelling towels, . I spoke with the owners a few times. They tried to make me feel as though I was overreacting. The neighbors arrived home later and I explained all this to them. The grounds were not kept up and the pool area was dirty...The neighbor power washed the condo and worked in the yard and around the pool for two days after we spoke. The owner reimbursed us a partial cleaning fee, at least. Found the WI-FI had been disconnected somehow and so no internet and the tv channels were awful.
We cleaned very well before we left.
We reimbursed you fully for the cleaning fee and gave an extra 100$ on top of that. When we left our home this year there was some mess before you arrived as our cleaner forgot to go in and do the deep clean after we left. We handled this matter personally, not sure why you had to write a review.
Really enjoyed our stay. Our rental was really nice. Everything you need was provided.
Melissa was great to work with. Neighbors are awesome n friends for life. Highly recommend staying there. Just a couple things need to be repaired but overall loved it....Lots of restaurants n shopping are close by. Enjoyed golfing at the several golf courses in the area.
We’re so happy, thanks so much you guys! We’ve upgraded a few little kitchens appliances as per your recommendations. Thanks again!
Nice home and neighbours. Very warm and comfortable. It had everything we needed including great golf courses, restaurants that were not busy and had good food. We would love to come back again !
