"AMAZING" is the best word to describe this home

  • 5 of 5

The bay front setting was the best that we've experienced in 10 years of visiting the keys! We arrived to a spotless and extremely comfortable home that was tastefully decorated with an island charm. The AC made the house comfortable on hot summer nights, while the WIFI made streaming movies and checking in at work a breeze. There was ample parking for our boat trailer and cars and the dock was adequate for our 25' center console.

After reading a previous review we were hesitant to rent this property, but we found it to be immaculate and up to date with every amenity you could need.

You can't go wrong with this property and we will continue staying here in the future.

Thank you Todd, for allowing our family to enjoy your home and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Bay Front open water luxury

  • 2 of 5

I am writing this review because we feel that future renters of this house should be aware that this is not a luxurious home! It is located in a magnificent setting with gorgeous sunsets. The owner describes himself as "a seasoned world traveler who demands comfort and quality, I insist on offering my guests the same level of quality." We were impressed with that statement, and the photos seemed to imply this also. Our experience did not reflect this at all!!! I would describe the interior, including furnishings as 'tired, in need of major updating and TLC'. The kitchen has pink formica, a leaky refrigerator and faucet, a dishwasher that one had to play with the bottom rack in order to close it along with a dearth of (or old) cookware is a long way from exuding luxury. The bedding was old and faded, not as the picture portrayed. Vertical blinds were faded, rusted and broken. We arrived to a house that had the plastic porch furniture piled in the living room and the electricity turned off. The internet access and cable TV had been discontinued, so it wasn't there as described in the list of amenities. A basic cable and internet access were reinstated per our request. The property manager was quite responsive and quickly replaced the outdoor grill (that had also listed in the amenities) that had been thrown out. I could continue, but I will say that we made the best of a very disappointing rental because it was so below what we expected, and we considered ourselves fortunate to have warm weather and surrounded by a beautiful vista.
