Less than picture perfect
Less than picture perfect
Greeting us upon our arrival was a huge pile of garbage stacked against the completely full garbage receptacle, only part of which the garbage truck took away the following morning. We put the remaining garbage in the receptacle ourselves to wait for the next pickup three days later. As we entered, we noticed that two of the fence pickets beside the sagging side gate had fallen to the ground. We rented this property based on a number of factors, one of which being the photos of the pool area. The pool area looked nothing like the pictures -- it had obviously been photographed many years ago. It was devoid of the lush, decorative plants and the beautiful teak table and chairs and market umbrella in the photo were now nowhere in sight, except for two of the chairs which were literally falling apart (one of which was in the corner of the back yard under a pile of debris). The wadded, dirty pool cover sat in another corner of the pool area. Not shown in the photos was the mold that had accumulated in the corners of the back of the house. The "steak lover's dream" of a gas grill was more like a nightmare; broken, rusted, with food caked on the cooking surface. It made a lovely companion to the tiny, flimsy hibachi still loaded with the ashes from the last renter. It took my husband several hours of cleaning to make the back yard presentable. The inside of the cottage was somewhat better; however, four light bulbs were burned out (three in kitchen, one in bathroom) and there was only one extra roll of toilet paper for three people. Furthermore, the only frying pans were scratched and pitted teflon pans. We had to purchase light bulbs, toilet paper, and a frying pan. There was a broken kitchen counter chair, and only two kitchen tea towels. The bathroom was cramped and fanless. There was dried brown matter on the tile by the toilet paper holder, discoloration around the bottom of the toilet and paint peeling off the bottom tier of wall tiles. To address all these maintenance issues and for lack of a local telephone number, I phoned the "emergency" number listed on the wall, leaving detailed messages -- twice -- and received no call back in response either time. On the plus side, the dishes, glassware and silverware were more than adequate, as advertised. There were plenty of towels, but not one, single washcloth. Neither was there bath soap or shampoo. The cozy dining room was as pictured.

I had high expectations for this house, based on the reviews and the photos. When we first arrived, it was clear someone had been smoking in the house. This is listed as a non smoking unit, hence the reason why I chose it. The smell didn't leave for two days and it was hard to be in the house because of it. The cleanliness was just ok. The bathroom needed more attention than it had received, dirty tile walls and the floor around the toilet was dirty. There was dog hair in the window sills in the living room. And to top it off, after being told we would receive our deposit back, she only sent part of it back. Claiming that she kept part of the money because of PayPal fees. She had written previously that pending no damage to the property, we would receive our deposit back in full. She never stated she would take money out because of fees. When I brought this to her attention she said she would look thought the emails and if what I was saying was true, she would send the rest of the money. I have emailed her twice sending her the emails she had sent with no response. I manage a couple of properties through VRBO and I find this experience to be very dishonest and disgraceful.

Perfect....Wonderful....last minute vacation. First the house. We were five. My three daughters, my wife, and I. The house was perfect. Something very important to us is cleanlinest and this house was spotless. The rooms were as nice in reality as they are in the pictures. The pool was great for an early morning, before dinner, or a night swim. What I am trying to say is that it didnt matter the time of day, the pool was great and perfectly private. Teenage daughters loved it. For a week it was our home. Not to mention our 2 minature dachsunds enjoying the fenced in yard who spent hours playing along side us as we swam in the pool. Beds were super comfortable. The kitchen was very chef friendly. The outdoor grill was a steak-lovers dream. Outside the house: We wanted to be close to it all and we were. The location was great. Literally 3 minutes to the Ocean. Parked right at the stairs down to the sand. Our days at the beach were perfect. The Intercoastal is a short walk from the front door, and a great place to take a walk, jog, bike ride, or roller blade. Wanted to go for Italian one night and the internet showed several within minutes drive. The closest one was unbelieveably good regarding quality of food and service. The Cafe Sapori, ask for Carlo as a server he was great. As an appetizer we had the thin crust pizza (thinest I ever had) and like the entrees it was fabulous. Spent a night exploring CityPlace. Great night life, shopping, and restaurants, all of 10 minutes straight down Dixie Highway, if it is even that far. Went arcading and Go-Carting another night, just 20 minutes away. Got to show my kids what a pin ball wizard is like. Of course I came in last place on the go-carts. Lion Country Safri 20 minutes away and the animals were active and very photogenic. Airport-Daughter called when she landed and that is when we left the house. We both got to the pick area at the same time. Our last day we were all sun-ed out. We headed up to the Gardens Mall. (About 20 minutes) One of the nicest malls I have ever been in. Worth a day shopping. All in all our last minute vacation was a total win for our family and it all started with the great little house with that very inviting atmosphere.

My family and I enjoyed a week at this lovely two-bedroom one-bath cottage with pool. Built in the 1950's, this cottage has been tastefully remodeled on the interior with crown molding, wood floors, modern appliances / electronics, and furnishings. We knew this cottage would be considerably smaller than our own home, but the "cottage" setting and cozy confines actually made for great family time. We loved the pool and very private tall-hedge backyard where we enjoyed relaxing day and night. The cottage is located close to most everything in WPB and resides in a safe quiet neighborhood with a mix of similar older homes and million dollar estates. If you are looking for a spacious home or an opulent property, this will not suit you. But if you want a cozy, family-friendly atmosphere with all the basic comforts of home that is located close to all WPB has to offer, then we highly recommend this property.

What a great place to stay!
What a great place to stay!
I was lucky enough to rent this home for a week and it was wonderful! I had a few friends over for dinner and everything I needed to entertain was there. My little boy had a great time as well. There were toys available to him as well as a bedrail in the guest room. I found myself free for a few hours one afternoon to lay on a raft in the pool and it was pure bliss! Total privacy and a wonderful way to enjoy a day in the sun. One of the friends I had over commented that it was such an inviting house that she felt like she was visiting me in my own home. I agree with her the home is just that inviting. I find myself in Florida about 3 times a year. I hope this home is available the next time I travel to the area. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with me.

Manager response: I am so glad thatyou enjoyed your stay. Thanks for taking such great care of the house. We would love to have you back!
My sister and I wanted to share our vacation with our two precious dogs. After researching for a few weeks, we found Cristina's cottage (which looked to good to be true) and we decided to take a chance and rented it. We were pleasantly surprised to see how beautiful and clean it actually was. This place had everything we could possibly need, a gorgeous pool,a pretty big backyard for the girls, privacy, a great barbecue grill and many many more things. Publix is near buy, a great pizzeria and a good diner within walking distance. We had no need to leave the house nor drive. It was a great mini vacation. I have told all my friends about it and we will definitely rented again. Thanks Cristina for sharing your beautiful cottage with us. Love, Monica, Janet,Teddy & Bella
