AC controlled by owner and Property Mgr. offered no help when house flooded.

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival, the house was 80deg. and 78 at night. After a miserable hot sleepless night, I was informed that the owner controls the thermostat and there is no way for the renter to adjust the temp. The AC filter was very dirty and the vents in the M. bdrm were black from a lack of cleaning. Prior to booking, I specifically asked the owner if the AC was controlled by the Renter due to a review that I read?. He replied, "The AC is controlled for your comfort. The obscure review that you mentioned, I think, was from an 80+ gentleman who was very confused". This was untrue. The owner controls the temp. remotely which is unacceptable! The hot tub was empty despite paying extra to use it. I was told "to fill it up with the garden hose" which to me meant that the owner did not want to provide the required chemicals to maintain it. The propane tank was empty and I was told "the owner expects me to fill it up and pay for it myself". The owner gave me directions to do so. Only after arguing, he delivered a full tank the next day. One of the two trash cans were full upon arrival. All of the bikes had flat tires. The kitchen faucet was barely attached to the sink. The M. bath had small bugs crawling on the surface every day of my stay. The house was decorated with fake plants/flowers which were covered in dust and the outdated vertical blind slats fell off onto the floor every time we opened/closed the blinds in the living rm.

The nightmare came on the 3rd day of my stay when the washing machine overflowed from the top and flooded all 3 bdrms, the hall, and both bathrooms. I immediately notified the prop. mgr and owner of the emergency and requested that they send some one(maid service or anyone) to come clean up all of the water as the house was uninhabitable and unsafe to wade around in water. To my astonishment, the prop. mgr told me "to clean it up myself with the towels provided". She eluded, that it was somehow my fault! The owners response was "that the rental is self-catering". I could not believe what I was hearing from these people! My family spent hours sopping up water and didn't hear from anyone until the next day when they confirmed the washing machine failed and that both appliances would be replaced. I then had to wait for the delivery interrupting yet more of my vacation. No apologies nor refunds were offered. I travel from S. Korea twice/yr and rent in Gulf Harbors to visit my family and would not recommend this property!

Owner's Response: The A/C is set to 78 degrees in the day time and 76 at night as per the utility provider recommendation. The thermostat on the wall inside the property can be operated by renters and an instruction manual is provided. I can also adjust this remotely from my computer. On speaking to the lady on her first morning at the house, I exlpained this but she asked me to set it to permanent 73 degrees which I did for her. We do not advertise free propane gas and this has never been an issue with previous renters. As a goodwill gesture, the property managment co provided a full cannister FOC. I learnt about the problem with the washing machine around midnight on the Friday night. On the Saturday morning I found a supplier who could deliver and install within 24 hours. I decided to take this option rather than possibly wait for parts to arrive for a repair and inconvenience the renter even longer. I called the lady and apologised for this unforseen occurrence. She said that would be fine as she had no plans to go out on Sunday. She explained that she just panicked when she saw water on the floor. The machine was delivered and installed on Sunday morning. The renter emailed me to confirm this had been done.The next communication I had was 8 days later, the day she left, when she accused me of switching the thermostat off that morning, which I did not. I spoke on the telephone to this lady 3 or 4 times. Each time it was a very civilised conversation and at no time did we disagree or argue. I was lead to believe her attitude was - these things happen. I was clearly wrong judging by this rather exaggerated review.

We arrived on Saturday afternoon and shortly after our arrival Steve called and walked me thru his amazing home.

Telling me where to find anything we would need and tell me how to turn on everything. That was so great. Everything was clean . The house was equipped with everything to cook with and real glasses to drink from. The sheets was great no wrinkles to roll under you. I can't Thank Steve enough. When we return to New Port Richey I rent this home again. I would recommend this home to everyone.

  • 5 of 5

what a fantastic villa and location. villa was clean and comfortable, pool was lovely and clean and warm, Hot tub was fantastic. everything you could want was there. and the owner rang on the day to check all was ok.

about 40 minutes from Tampa airport, we went to Busch gardens which took about and hour. we went to Disney which took about 2 hours, and we went to Clearwater beach which was about 30 minutes,

fished off the private dock at the back and went to the private beach which is beautiful.

lots of shops and restaurants close by and Old New port richey is lovely.

would definitely return here.

thank you for sharing your home

Great relaxing home

  • 4 of 5

As advertised and photos right up to date.

Had the need to contact the management company for a minor detail. The response was outstanding and the service provided excellent.

As a family of 4 with kids at 11 and 8, we had a fantastic time in the pool and fishing from the dock. The kids also loved the various HD kids programmes on the TV with surround sound in a very comfortable living area.

Beds comfortable, sufficient hot water, AC set at good temperature, garage access perfect when the rain is on!

Very close by, less than 10 mins in car, was a mall, good food, cinema and supermarkets. Bait shops available close by but we just picked up at Walmart sports section.

We drove to Clearwater for the beach as the local beaches weren't for us. (small, quiet etc) and we drove to Busch Gardens, both 45 mins from the house,

Car essential, neighbours very friendly and twice weekly garbage uplift.

Owner very responsive and a pleasure to deal with.

Stunning Waterfront Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I hd a wonderful time at this stunning waterfront home. The photos do not do this house justice! Close to all the restaurants, golfcourses and malls, it is great! We saw amazing sunsets at the beach, which is a pleasant short walk from the house. My husband is now a converted fisherman after fishing off the private dock whilst i relaxed by the pool. Highlight has to be seeing dolphins swim past the house...TWICE!!!! The house has all you could wish for and more, the owner even phoned us on the day of our arrival to check that everything was ok. Thank you Steve for your recommmendation of Cody's, best steak i've ever tasted!! We'll be back, thats a promise!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

a wonderful vacation home with everything that you need for a wonderful holiday. Located in a central part of the gulf coast with easy driving to both central Orlando and the various beaches. Fantastic waterside setting and dolphins swam by in the evening to welcome us. Our children and us alike loved the pool and the fab fishing off the back dock. In contrast to other vacation homes that we have stayed in which are nice but can be sterile and obviously for rental only this was not the case it was a real home from home and we were all sad to leave. The owner was fantastic calling to check we were settled in and gave us some great tips
