Too many annoyances
Too many annoyances
We stayed a month over the Christmas Holidays 2012–2013. We were given 48 hours to find/mention all the problems with the property or we'd be held responsible for their repair or replacement. So naturally, we made a list, that included a toilet that wouldn't stop leaking and a broken seat, a freezer and ice dispenser that gave us a great deal of trouble the entire time, and that, clearly, Ingrid, the caretaker/manager, knew about but wasn't prepared to have fixed, the master bedroom mattress that had been turned over in order to keep it clean (for when the house owners visit?). We slept on the frame for a few nights until Ingrid revealed the cause of our discomfort and we turned the mattress over; cheap, uncomfortable furniture that merely looks OK, many burned lights. The main TV set has satellite but the other 2, in the bedrooms, don't, and none is HD. The wide angle photos are deceiving as they give the impression of much larger rooms. The 3 secondary rooms are tiny. We had to pay extra for a child’s crib and high chair and were charged inordinately for electricity, even though we turned off the AC all day and most nights, dined in infrequently and kept lighting at a minimum. The pool was heated daytimes but the weather was toasty so we weren't fighting any cold fronts. The lanai and pool and view are truly lovely and the house is well equiped and maintained. But Ingrid avoided us most of the time, not returning calls or e-mails time and again, and not keeping her promise to come over for a post-inspection of the premises on the eve of our departure. If she is too busy, then she should hire help! At those prices, we expected adequate service. Even the repair guy was grumpy. The house phone number that was posted was wrong so nobody could contact us for almost 2 weeks, yet Ingrid kept insisting it was the correct number. We finally got the right number by acquiring a cell phone with caller ID, and calling our cell from the house phone. Would I recommend this property? No...too many frustrations. The house is in an ordinary neighborhood and, unlike the impression the photos give, it is tightly wedged between houses on either side. And be prepared to do most of the house straightening yourself before leaving: linens and laundry, floors, kitchen appliances and counters, barbeque, and so on, OR ELSE you will pay a hefty surcharge. So with all of the incidentals, don’t expect much money back from your security deposit.

Manager response: I have read this review thoroughly and am both shocked and amused at the content. When comparing this review to one received from a previous tenant just 4 weeks prior this current review seems very strange. The previous tenant from 4 weeks ago in their review expressed how wonderful Villa Bellagio was in all aspects; location, furnishings, well equipped and went on to give a very positive comment on the property management and my personal service. I hardly think the neighbourhood has changed drastically in the past 4 weeks nor my service. As well, many previous tenants over the past several years ask to rebook their visits to the Villa Bellagio for 2 months or more. Because of the gross inaccuracies reported in this review, I feel compelled to correct some of the statements. With respect to the toilet seat, upon arrival it was fine. 2 days into the rental it broke. It was replaced without question or charge to the tenant. As per tenant request, we changed 60 Watt bulbs to 40 Watt bulbs because the tenant complained the 60 Watt bulbs were too bright. We had to repair the garbage disposal due to the fact the tenant had dropped spoons and bottle caps into the disposal. Again no charge for this was assessed to the tenant. With respect to the satellite and TV, the internet provider was changed 2 weeks prior to the arrival of the tenant and I personally gave the tenant the correct phone number to the house on the second day of their stay. The system does not operate on a satellite but rather, the service is provided by Comcast. The complaint that calls could not be received from Canada is baseless. I had people call the house from Europe with the number I provided the tenant. There was absolutely no problem. Why calls were not incoming from Canada is a mystery. To suggest that there was an extra charge for a baby crib and high chair is false. The charge to rent these items was clearly stated to the tenant before signing the rental contract to which the tenant agreed. For the tenant to suggest that I misused their security deposit I take personally. This is an outrageous accusation and an outright lie. The tenant was given all information with respect to electricity use and was charged only the extra electricity consumption in accordance with the rental agreement. The tenant’s suggestion that they used very low amounts of electricity is not substantiated by the electricity provider (LCEC – Lee County Electric Company).

This rental was fantastic! I have stayed in 3 vacation rentals (that I booked myself) and have been a guest in at least 3 other vacation rentals that my parents booked. All of those were really great, but this one was the very best!! The house was beautiful, spotlessly clean, and supplied with everything you might need from kitchenware to plenty of towels & blankets, all the way down to books/movies/magazines. The yard was lushly landscaped with lots of tropical flowers and tress. The pool and spa were also immaculately clean and maintained. The views and sunsets from the lanai were amazing! We even went kayaking right from the dock in the backyard. The house is located in a very nice, safe and quiet neighborhhod. Our host, Ingrid, was super!! She was very quick with all responses, very friendly & outgoing, and extremely effecient. Not to mention her thoughtfulness! She even left us with some delicious chocolates & a bottle of wine with a card/note! The entire experience, from booking to having our security deposit returned, was flawless. Would definitley reccommend Villa Bellagio & Ingrid to everyone!!!
