40 day stay summer 2017

  • 5 of 5

My family of four--including me, my husband, and my kids--ages 7 & 4--could not have been happier with Tom and Jackie's place. It was clean and had everything we needed for a perfect summer get-away! There was a pool within 2-minutes walking distance of the condo as well as several other pools on the compound. We felt very safe and were impressed by the security of the compound. We went to the pool(s) every day and enjoyed the FOUR TVs (one for each of us!) in the condo. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and it was wonderful to be able to stretch out. It is also only 1/4 mile from Vine Street where there is everything you could possibly want for eating out/shopping. We live overseas in South Korea and come home every summer. We have stayed in different rentals and this has been, by far, our favorite. We almost don't want to highly recommend it just so that we can continue to snag it for ourselves in the future!! Thanks for a wonderful stay, Jackie and Tom!

A pleasant place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Unit 35-103 at Venetian Bay Villages was a pleasant place to stay. We were there for 2 months escaping the Frozen North. On our arrival there were some mechanical problems, namely the furnace didn't work (yes, it can get cold in Florida), the dishwasher flooded the kitchen and the garbage disposal leaked. All of these were put right immediately, despite us arriving at 5PM on a Friday. We've been spending a little in the winter for 8 years now, and it's not so much what's good and what's not, it's more how well it's corrected. Our problems were reacted to immediately despite the day and hour.

The rest of our stay went well. There was a nice big HDTV and usable cable, and the wi-fi was fast and reliable.

I would stay there again.

1. Killed cockroaches in every room on first level on the first day and every single day until we left 58 days later. Found roaches in all kitchen cupboards, bathroom vanity, tub and shower curtain.

2. Contacted the property manager Donna on day one, whose initial response was to laugh, then inform me it was Florida and this was a common occurrence and no big deal

3. Mike, the pest control guy came next day, baited and sprayed and returned 4 others times at my request. ( good guy)

4. Kept all our food in fridge and dishes in oven and microwave

5. Never saw a sustained decrease in number of roaches

6. Cancelled 2018 reservation and still have no place for next year

7. Tom the owner sent us $200 gift card

8. Nobody ever called us to see how we were doing, I was always the one to initiate the communication

9. With 2 weeks remaining, I sent Tom video of the current conditions and asked him to determine an appropriate partial refund

10. Tom's response was to argue my use of the term "infestation" , suggested "strongly" I assaulted his integrity and good name when I stated that the unit did not match the description on the HomeAway website, mentioned how many times they had sprayed HIS unit ( I guess that was a perk) and stated I should have left if I wanted a refund

11. Informed Tom that because the people we travelled with depended on our support whlile travelling due to health issues, leaving early after a few days was not an option

12. Left 2 days early got 2 day refund

13. I wish pictures were allowed in these reviews

14. Until I requested a partial refund, my experience with the owner was exceptional

15. Carpets were filthy, Tom had them cleaned next day. Still stained but cleaner.

16. Lastly, I believe the person experiencing the situation earns the right to define it.

17. Although the owner and property manager knew there was a cockroach problem the unit was rented out the next week. See the review of April 7 on HomeAway site where the renter mentions cockroaches and dirty carpet. What a coincidence!

Needs improvements

  • 2 of 5

The house was nice, beds where comfortable, nice location to the parks. However dirty floors, roaches, mold in bathroom. When complained the owner returned messages but the whole time we had the home nothing was fixed except for the carpets which got scrubbed the day before we left. The cleaning crew the owner has cleaning does not do a very good job as we had garbage under our beds,the one twin bed smelled of urine. Also it states the house will be prepared with small samples of laundry and dish soaps also paper towels and garbage bag, which nothing was there for us, so we had to go buy everything.
