Missing many ammenties
I have to say that I was a disturbed that I had to call to find out how we would get into the property which was the day before we were to arrive. Upon arrival we found trash in the trash can that had obviously been in there for a while because it smelled and was filled with fruit flies. I would say that the house was cleaned but not very well...... Food was left in the refrigerator as well.
There was no instructions on when trash or recycling goes out so the recycling bin was over flowing. Thankfully the neighbor told us it was trash day so we were able to get the smelly trash out of the garage.
We were told that a key to the community pool would be left for us but it wasn't.
I found it nice that the dining room table was staged to look nice but it left nothing but plastic dinnerware to eat off.
No screens on the sliding doors out to the patio made it hard to leave them open without bugs or critters coming in. None of the furniture was set up outside to enjoy. Maybe it is to early in the year. The same thing was true of the front door which the screen didn't cover the total door.
Lighting and the ceiling fans were all hard to figure out how to turn them on.
Just a few small things like Kleenex, a few extra bath towels, extra blankets for the beds, information on wifi and how the TV works would have been helpful.
The neighborhood was very quiet and the neighbors were pleasant and the location of the house was convenient to many locations.
Overall there was not a warm or welcoming feeling from this property.
Dear Irene - We are sorry to hear that things weren’t satisfactory for your stay. We appreciate your comments and have added additional tips to our welcome instructions regarding the ‘how to’ for lighting and entertainment.
There are plenty of glasses, dishes, and silverware in the kitchen. We like to include some plastic cups and plates because some of our guests have children.
Our property manager, Sheila, lives close by and is very accessible. Had she known you were having trouble finding things like the pool key, she would have taken care of it right away.
Sincerely... /Derek and Moneiva
It was all we hoped it would be and then some!
This property is very well maintained. From the moment we walked through the door, we were pleased. The furnishings are tasteful as well as comfortable. The master suite is spacious with a beautifully appointed large bathroom. The well equipped kitchen has everything you might need. Enjoy your stay!
Dear Marguerite - We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to provide us with thoughtful feedback about your visit. We look forward to having you back again. /Derek and Moneiva
A great place to relax
We LOVED our "home away from home" and can't wait to come back next year! It's a recent property so everything is still like brand new. The dishes, cookware and bakeware were top notch. The furniture was AMAZING and one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in There was only 1 television which was a bummer, but I made do with my tablet and laptop. Shelia thought of everything, She was quick to respond with any questions or issues that we had. Very conveniently located to restaurants, grocery & gas stations, as well as 64, 301 & 75! A very quiet neighborhood with the community pool across the street.
Dear Jean - We are glad you and your family enjoyed your stay... and that it felt like home. Thanks so much for your thoughtful review. We look forward to having you back again next year! /Derek and Moneiva
Everything as expected!
Property was as beautiful as the pictures. Location was ideal for our family of 6, 3 adults and 3 children 5 and under. Plenty of space and conveniently located to all the stores, shops, beaches and other attractions. Neighborhood is quiet, park is a a few steps away with a gated pool. Friendly neighbors who greeted us our first day of arrival. Home owner and manager were friendly, professional and were easy to reach and work with. They accommodated us even during the Holidays. Highly recommended property!
Dear Jackie - Thank you for the nice review. We are glad you and your family enjoyed the holidays in our home. We look forward to having you back. /Derek and Moneiva
