                                                              We found everything about this stay exceeded our expectations.The condo and the grounds are very well maintained and we loved all the wildlife that we could watch. Other renters were very friendly. This condo is within walking distance to the grocery store, a short ride to G.T. Bray park where i played pickleball most days. Sarasota, Riverwalk and the beach are short drives.

                                                              Allen, was a very attentive owner doing whatever he could to make our visit great. I am confident that anyone would enjoy their stay.

                                                              The condo was perfect for my stay there...kitchen amenities, comfortable beds, big TV, patio with lake view, beach and restaurants nearby, walking paths and peaceful atmosphere.

It was truly a pleasure to host you for the month of January and I enjoyed meeting you. We hope to have the opportunity to host you at sometime in the not-too-distant future.

                                                              With best wishes and warm regards,

                                                              It was excellent and would stay again.

                                                              Thank you very much for your review Koula it was great to get your note just after you left to say how much you enjoyed everything.

                                                              We appreciate you staying with us and look forward to hosting you again and keeping in touch.

                                                              All the very best for 2018.

                                                              Best regards,

                                                              Allen

                                                              Good, but opportunity to improve

                                                              john c w.

                                                              The community pool & hot tub as well as the surrounding areas were always clean as shown in the still pictures & video clip. Both were heated all the time which was great. Although we didn't use the other community facilities (pool table, etc.), we found them to be in good condition & clean. Very close to food stores & lots of golf courses. We had two areas of concern. When taking showers, the second person would run out of hot water about 1/2 way through & it was luke warm thereafter. The 3rd & 4th family members of the had to wait. Frustrating. Second, the thermostat was set at 74 and we were able to lower it to 72 (but not lower) temporarily after which it would jump back to 74. As someone who likes it at 70, this was frustrating & not noted in the ad. The main kingsize bed & the sofa bed were both of excellent quality however, I feel there's a misrepresentation in the pictures & video of the unit regarding the second bedroom. It says there are "two bathrooms with king sized beds" which really isn't accurate. Yes, there are 2 bathrooms, but the second bedroom has 2 small single beds and although you can push them together, it's not the same as a king bed as anyone who's tried to do so. You'll note in the video & the still pictures that there's isn't a clear view of the two singles. As for the "luxury condo" description, I'd revise to say it's a well maintained, exceptionally clean condo. While some furniture is of high quality, the cookware & silverware are the inexpensive quality you get at Walmart. Would we recommend? It depends. First, the water & AC issues would have to be addressed. Second, based upon what I know of the rental market in the area, I'd put this unit closer to the $90-$95/night rate.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              John thank you for your review. We were naturally very disappointed and sorry to hear about your concerns, especially as we focus on being client centric, rely heavily on guests returning and take feedback seriously.

                                                              The issues you raised have not been raised before and its a shame you did not provide any of this feedback at start of or during your stay, giving us the opportunity to address same.

                                                              With regards to the hot water, we have already checked with our current guests who have indicated that the hot water is OK. We will have our plumber check the system between guests. Naturally we appreciate the importance of adequate hot water and had we known we would have dispatched our plumber immediately, to invesigate and fix any issues found.

                                                              The AC temperature is set the to a minimum temperature in the winter of 72, which is based on best practice. In the four years we have been renting our three vacation homes in Florida, we have never had a complaint and I would have been happy to make the adjustment for your stay, had you let me know.

                                                              I am not sure I fully understand your comments or concerns about the second bedroom, but just for clarity the beds were made up in the second bedroom as two singles, as per your request. When they are made up as a king bed, the size is actually a little wider than a traditional king, albeit slightly shorter – the industry refers to the size as California King. We actually use a conversion kit to make the holistic bed seamless. Again it’s a shame you did not flag up your concerns regarding the bed at the beginning of your stay, when we communicated, because we could have changed the bed over to a California King if you no longer required single beds in this room.

                                                              With regards to the cookware, and stainless steel silverware, it is from Bed Bath and Beyond and are the same brands that we use in our own home. We have never had any complaints before, and when anything gets worn it is replaced immediately.

                                                              Whilst you may have been able to book somewhere a little cheaper, in peek season, we believe that we offer outstanding value for money and we know we are competitively priced. This unit is booked over 44 weeks of the year and we are currently ranked by VRBO number 80 out of the 7434 properties in our market, based on independent guest reviews.

                                                              We hope our comments help and again we are sorry that you felt the experience did not measure up to expectations.

                                                              All the best for 2018,

                                                              Great condo. Very well organized and felt like a home away from home. Close to IMG and other places

                                                              Debra L.

                                                              We were very impressed and felt like we definitely got a great deal. All linens and towels were clean and lots of extras.

                                                              The owner stays in touch with you and really wants to please you.

                                                              We will definitely stay there again and appreciate the owner for making us feel welcome
