Thought I could believe the description, photos & reviews. Awful. Vacation ruined on first day.

  • 1 of 5

I booked this "villa" as part of a long awaited vacation. A friend from Europe would join me. The owner emailed me that I could stay at this home the night before our actual rental week began. My stomach dropped when I pulled in the driveway.

The exterior looked worn and dirty, I opened the front door & the smell inside this house was horrible, I was physically sick & in shock. The furniture was worn & dirty, carpet damp & smelly, the terrazzo floor was chipped up in the living area. The icemaker was rusty, dirty & didn't work. The interior of the freezer was covered with rust. There was a vase with 2-3 dead roses. I would later be accused of stealing this vase & roses. I texted the property manager, Erika. She said she had just been in this home, had put out vase of roses & that maybe some air freshener would take care of the odor. I won't even go into ALL the other issues. I told Erika we could not stay in this hellhole & would go to a hotel, I wanted a refund as this place was not as described.

I told her to contact the owner, whom I thought lived locally. I then had to find a hotel for that first night & then a hotel with two rooms for my friend & myself on a very busy weekend in the area. 22 hours later the owner called me from Sweden & she would not listen to me. She said she'd arranged for us to stay in another of her units. I said I don't trust that this other unit would be any better. She was not pleasant to deal with. She also said she'd sent an inspector who found contaminated ground water had permeated the home. I told her I'd already paid for two rooms at a hotel & for her to wait until 3 pm on a Friday was not right but she talked over me. Neither she nor Erika listened when I said I was sick (nausea, coughing, migraine) from spending less than an hour in this smelly home. The owner called me again, she told me I cost her so much money, as I'd already contacted my credit card company to get a refund. She also said she'd hired a new property management team, so there is the proof she had incompetent management who should have been taking care of this house.

Don't blame the guest for uncovering your health hazard mess & staff problems. Even my friend got nowhere trying to reason with her. It was ALL about her. No apology. Our vacation was ruined.

Homeaway told me to leave a bad review & that they'd investigate. Wish I could have "captured" the smell in the house.

Perfect relaxation for big family or group of friends!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for quite long and we felt like home! Both bedrooms, kitchen and living room area are very spacious. It is fresh, clean and nicely decorated. The outdoor with dining area, pool and sun deck by the water are great! A big family or group of friends can enjoy and relax both in the house and the surroundings. The location is perfect, close to beach, stores and restaurants. The management and staff are very attentive and service minded. We really enjoyed staying here and I highly recommend renting this house!

Nice Spot near Las Olas

  • 5 of 5

House has everything you would need for kitchen and bath. Three King Rooms all with their own bathrooms makes this a great spot to bring a family or a group of couples.15min walk to the las olas restaurants and just over 20 to the beach. Neighborhood is very nice. Outdoor patio area with grill and pool are very nice. Canal lovely although sparse on fish. Homeowner group very easy to deal with. Outside of needing a little paint here and there, furnishings are modern and very nice. All Pictures here are accurate. Inside table fits 8, outside 6 plus two lounge chairs. BBQ grill, extra fridge in garage, nice laundry. Would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing vacation with our 4 young children. The kids played in the pool all day, "fish" in the canal, take walks to look at the boats, and have dinner on Las Olas. A very nice vacation.

Review of Villa Fiesta

  • 5 of 5

Superb location - walk to everything in Las Olas. Very child friendly and clean. Great layout. The pool and dock space were particularly nice amenities. This was a great home to spend an amazing vacation and I would definitely rent it again. The owners also have done a nice job in making sure the color palate and decor are suitable to all renters. Very comfortable!

Dreamy family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Fiesta last May and loved every minute of it! Beautiful house, perfect for the kids and with a great location, close to the beach and Las Olas Blvd. Linens and towels are fresh, house is well maintained and clean, kitchen is well equipped.

Sitting by the poolside while the kids are playing in the garden after a nice barbeque dinner enjoying the lovely warm evening climate - dreamy! We are definitely coming back!
