Large, comfortable and well furnished
Centrally located to everything with plenty of space for everyone with the 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. Soaker tub in 3rd bath is lovely but a shower would have been more functional. Owner is very responsive to inquiries.
We had a great week!
comfortable house, great location, attentive owner
Upholstery furniture is torn and unsightly and property needs general TLC. There is no public access to beach within walking distance. We were told to walk thru condo property across the street and say that we were on "saint judes". Fortunately, we were never stopped.
Owner was attentive to our request for extra toilet paper and trash bags - both should have been in rental and he dropped them off when requested (kinda awkward to have to request tho!)
Island was great but we won't stay at this property again.
We stayed 4 days, 3 nights in August 2015. This property was everything I expected from a rental at this price point. The pictures posted with this listing accurately represent the property. The house was spacious enough for the 8 adults in our party and was nice and clean. We were very happy with the selection of pots and pans in the kitchen; there were plenty of plates, cups, etc. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. Management responded promptly to our (minor) concerns while we were on-site.
The beds did not have top sheets or blankets – just fitted sheets and the comforters pictured – but we were able to find the extra linens without a problem.
The house is listed as a 2 bathroom, but the description in the listing includes 3 – I would consider this 2.5 bathrooms, as the 3rd has a tub that is not outfitted with a proper shower head or curtain.
Off-steet parking is limited to 2 cars, probably 3 if you squeeze smaller vehicles in the driveway, which could be a problem for parties of 8. We were able to make it work.
I removed one star from the rating for the following two reasons:
1. The property did not have extra TP, which I considered standard for a rental.
2. The beach is ½ block from the property, but this access is privately owned by the beachfront condos. You are crossing private property to access the beach, and we did meet with one unhappy owner on one of our three trips to the beach. According to beach access points listed online, the nearest public access is just over 1 mile from this property.
The Good, Bad and the Ugly
We rented this home for the month of February, 2015. Starting with the "Good": This private home is used by family when they come to Longboat Key. The location is great, short walk to Bay or to the beach. The layout is good, especially the private suite. It is located on a quiet street with great neighbors. Bathrooms and kitchen, mattresses, ceiling fans in all rooms, internet access, all are good. The "Bad": Cookware in kitchen is old and worn, no outlet in suite bathroom, sink doesn't drain, TV's are dated, furniture is living room and sitting room is worn and torn. Several light bulbs were burnt out. Some window treatments need to be replaced. The "Ugly": The house was not clean. Dead bugs, crumbs all over, most windows would not open, screens torn. I spent 4 days cleaning it. I paid $150 cleaning fee and it was clearly not cleaned. There is way too much clutter in all the rooms: 2 vacuum cleaners that don't work, dresser drawers and closets full of Christmas wrapping, shopping bags, 14 old telephone books (!!), 2 old TV'. The backyard is a mess. Laundry room was dirty and cluttered. The house smelled when we arrived and eventually we realized the garbage disposal was leaking and bowl was placed under it to catch drips, which was what smelled. I realize this is a family home but it needs to be better attended if they plan to rent it out. It has great potential but I wouldn't rent it again unless all these things are addressed.
Thank you for your comments judt to address some of the issues you addressed the house is not as bad as commented the couches were not seen to have toend in them the hskp issues will be addressed and taken care of the house well equipped with lots of household goods the backyard there is nothing back there the sink that was leaking and the one that didn't drain the Plummber had an appointment to come over however the guest did not want them to come so the appt was cancelled then could not get in touch with guest to reschedule the house is not as bad as it seems think the review was a little harsh and unfair
