About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This beautifully furnished four bedroom, three bath house spans over 2000 square feet (7000 lot total) and is only a block from the Beach of the Atlantic Ocean! The master bedroom has a pillow-top king-size bed and French doors leading out to the 18ft round heated pool and relaxing jacuzzi.

The second bedroom has two single beds placed together, the third has a queen-size bed, and the fourth has a daybed. The living room is furnished with a leather couch and love seat, 60 inch HDTV, and there is an alcove off to the side which has an office area and seating with two chairs. The dining room has seating for six.

In addition, there is a Florida room which is like another living area. It has a sectional sofa, two chairs, a television with VCR and a dining set for four. It serves as a great play area for the kids. We are children-friendly and happy to provide crib, high chair, and playpen. Another great feature is that the home is a one-story, split, bedroom plan which means you have two bedrooms and two baths on one side of the house and two bedrooms and one bath with its own entrance on the other side. Perfect when traveling with the kids and the nanny, or a large family. Pool has a removable safety ladder and spa has a cover.

All of the comforts of home are provided: dishes (serving for 12), utensils, linens, eight cup coffee maker, blender, baking pans, cappacino maker, towels, beach chairs, cordless telephone with answering machine, barbecue grill, and much more. The backyard is completely fenced in for peace of mind with the kids or your pet. There is also a dock about 50 feet from the back of the home which is a great for fishing or watching the boats.

Some of the extras include spa robes, spa soaps, Pur water filter in kitchen, and a high efficiency antimicrobial AC filter to ensure clean fresh air. Maid service, groceries, and activities can also be arranged at your request.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

Booking a vacation rental online and from a private owner is something that we were somewhat hesitant about. However, this home is everything it promises to be! Even with nine people (six of them teens), we never felt crowded. It is very spacious and clean. The beds were fabulous and all the furniture is very nice and comfortable. We all thoroughly enjoyed our much too short stay here!

My family and I really enjoyed our stay even though we had a little problem with the kitchen lights.

  • 4 of 5

My trip consisted of my family of six, and a small dog. Therefore, we had plenty of room, since the house was setup to sleep 10. While there we encountered a problem with the kitchen light and Mr. Ken came over to fix them. He was very nice and we enjoyed talking to him.

Nice house close to the beach with pool and hot tub

  • 5 of 5

My family of six had a great time here. The kids loved the pool and hot tub. The kitchen and grill made going out to eat not a must. Two blocks from the beach where you can rent chairs for the day or the week. My wife liked that she could do laundry during our stay and that the kids, ages 8, 9, 9, and 12 could play in the pool without much supervision. I would definitely like to stay here again.

House needs good cleaning!

  • 1 of 5

The layout of the house is really good for a large group. The backyard also has a nice layout.

However, the house was just not clean. The kitchen cabinets had drips and food smudges. The garbage pail was dirty on the top and the outside. The silverware container and the silverware needed a good washing. The small appliances(coffee maker, blender,etc) were dirty. There were a number of appliances in the lower cabinets, but they looked unclean and disfunctional. The cookware was in bad shape, especially the non-stick kind. They were pitted and scratched and unusable.

The mattresses were OK, but the mattress covers needed washing. I spent hours the 1st day cleaning & washing. We also bought a coffee maker, some pans, towels,etc. While the backyard seemed very pleasant, the cushions on the chairs were moldy(4 of us have allergies and couldn't use the backyard table for that reason). My youngest grandson wanted to use the pool, and spent a long time cleaning out the bamboo leaves(they never stopped falling)

Property not as advertised

  • 2 of 5

The property is not as presented on the website--it is shabby and in poor physical condition: pool does not adequately heat and remained too cold to use during our entire one month stay; walls and furniture are scratched and stained; refrigerator had no rails on the door and had a badly broken drawer with jagged edges; hot tub is badly warped and had no cover. House was very dirty and grimy when we arrived; toilet seat broken, TVs not operating; clearly not readied by owners for our occupancy. At our request, cleaning person was sent three days after we arrived. Location is farther from beach than one block, but it is a short walk. Two stars because beds and furniture are comfortable and location is quiet; otherwise, one star. Overall, the house is not worth the rent charged.

Owner's Response: Dear Sparkie, I am sorry that our home did not meet your expectations. As I explained in my email response February is high season and the pricing is at its peak. Regarding the items that you feel were misrepresented, I have to disagree. The couches that were in the photos on VRBO were both replaced with leather seating and would be considered an upgrade by any standards. The white leather sectional in the living room retails for $2500 at Z Gallerie and was placed there a few months ago. The dining chairs are also from Z Gallerie ($690) and are just 2 months old. The capiz shell chandelier ($400) in the dining room replaced the old ceiling fan. We also replaced the area rugs in the living, kitchen and bedroom at a cost of over $1000. We are also in the process of painting with master and living/dining area complete as of your stay so yes the home looked a bit different than the photos but it was because we were upgrading those items! As far as the the tile, counter top, cabinets (yes they do have some wear) and there are the rooms that still need to be painted but these are NOT items that would impact the enjoyment of the home in any way. I did not advertise the home as having granite countertops or top of the line stainless steel appliances! The refrigerator is missing a shelf and drawer but was in working condition and cooling properly. We have since replaced the refrigerator with one that has an ice maker. As you mentioned in the memo that Ken was able to repair most of the items and tried his best with the pool heater even purchasing a new pump for $275. The spa although not perfect aesthetically was fully functional and was heating properly. In fact Ken noted it was on full heat during all the times he was there. I also apologized that some cleaning issues needed to be addressed and you stated you were satisfied after they returned. As far as the walk to the beach I was happy to provide exact address for you to see the home on a satellite map and the home is about 2 blocks (2 minute walk to the sand) and the intracoastal is just seconds from backyard. It is my goal to provide a home away from home that serves as a great retreat for those who want to enjoy the south Florida weather, ocean breezes and the beautiful atlantic ocean. I am truly sorry that the home did not live up to your expectations and I appreciate your feedback. Regards, Lisa

Relaxed Stay

  • 4 of 5

Excellent and relax house to be there. Very close to the beach ; close bythe house there is a strip center where you can buy all your forgotten staff.

Only regret is one shower didn't work, but owner was so kind to try to fix it.
