Guestbook comments from the owner

Phoebe and Hank !



How rude of me !! It is nearly a week since we left your super home, after having thoroughly enjoyed two weeks exploring Florida....or at least what we could !





What a delightful area, and how pleased we were each day to take refuge in our home of 2 weeks. It was always such a pleasure returing to "1825 Bridgeview Circle". We all.....Sophie included!, thank you for "letting us in!" Thank you............thank you !





I hope we were able to leave your home to your liking.....we tried our best ! :-)





I will recommend the residence to anyone who asks me. Top class and just memorable. We are hoping to return, absolute latest Autumn 2015, so I will stay in contact for that time, but I am personally hoping to make it back sooner. We will see........i can hope ! :-)





I hope this mail finds you both well. Not too busy sorting out the Portuguese red tape. We wish you both health and happiness and hope to see you again in the not too distant future.





Our very best regards

4th Year in a row - Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in properties from these owners (Hank & Phoebe) on 5 different occasions. This is our fourth time to stay in this particular property including the last 4 years in a row! Along with a beautiful pool & spacious home, everything we needed was here. The property is clean & very well maintained with more than enough clean linen and towels provided. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything a family might need to cater for themselves. The internet was perfect and super fast! The home is located in a lovely quiet neighborhood which is convenient to all attractions and great restaurants & shopping. We would highly recommend this property and Hank and Phoebe are the perfect hosts.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here for our Disney trip this year! Very roomy for the 8 of us, and kids loved our private pool! The house was very clean and there was plenty of dishes for use.

Some improvements needed

  • 4 of 5

Although the home is beautiful and it is in a very good location, there are some improvements that need done. I booked through my travel agent and before arriving I was issued the list of things to remember when we arrive. Also stated that if I needed to address anything to text, email, or call. When we arrived the house had socks in front of the door, the pool area was very dirty. There were socks left by the pool area, there were beer bottle cans, and gobs of hair. I sent a text to the owner about the pool area. No response. The rules stated that the barbeque grill would be in the garage and if we used it to place in the racks in the dishwasher to be cleaned for next use. The grill was in the patio area and it was extremely dirty. There were cigarette butts inside the grill. And it looks as if the racks had never been cleaned. We did not use the grill. There was absolutely no hot water. I called the office line also texted, and left a message to see if there was a problem with the hot water. No response. The comforter on for the twin beds in the kids rooms definitely need washed. The one my daughter had on was filthy. Many stains on the pullout bed. The pros are the property is about 15-20 mins away from the parks and near many stores and food outlets. It's a great property just needs some attention and better communication between guest and owners.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for you input on the house, and I am sorry the hubs was not ready for you when you arrived, but the previous guest had destroyed the place including the grill that is normally in the garage. I will take care of the issues that you mentioned and I appreciate you letting us know the issue you incounted durning your stay. Thank you again for you input. Phoebe and Hank

AWESOME HOME!

  • 5 of 5

The home is BEAUTIFUL!! We couldn't be more please with this home. Great location to all the attraction. We are a family of 9 and this home was PERFECT for us. Thank you Phoebe Matos for our great experience in your home. One more thing the Pool is FANTASTIC my children love it so much that they would rather stay in the home than going out sight seeing!

Lovely property,well equipped and very nicely furnished. Super location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday thanks to the lovely accommodation by the lake and the hospitality of Phoebe and Hank who went out of there way to ensure that everything was right for our stay and we cannot thank them enough. The property suited us fine and was really comfortable and always nice to return to at the end of the day. This was our first experience of this type of holiday in Florida as we have usually stayed in hotels but that now does not look likely for future stays. If we are able to return for another holiday in Florida this will be our first port of call.
