This property needs some work!!!

  • 1 of 5

I have rented many homes all over the country, but this one by far was the worst. Upon arrival the cleaning people were just finishing up, one would think the property would be nice and clean...but it wasn't:

-High chair still had dried food on it from the last guests

-The stove and oven still had grease on it

-Windows, doors and all glass tabletops were dirty and had fingerprints all over them

-From hairs in the several of the bathrooms, to sheets that were stained, to the floors that you could still see the dirt on, this place was far from clean!!

-The pool was a milky shade of green when we got there, the pool man did come on the second day and put a bunch of chlorine in it, which we then couldn't use for a while due to the chemicals.

-There were holes in the walls that had colored duct tape over them and random nails sticking out of the walls where pictures once were.

-The furniture is run down and broken, laminate peeling off the beds, vanities, cabinets

-Nails poking through the dining rooms chairs, when you sat down

-The stove and oven still had grease on it

-The kitchen is ill equipped, no garbage bags, no salt and pepper, not enough utensils. Glad there was a store closes, as we had to buy pretty much everything.

-Dishwasher broke and dumped water all over the kitchen, dining and living room floor...there's nothing like washing dishes, by hand, for 12 people while on vacation.

-The "game" room was a disappointment, as the games were all broken. There was also no air hockey table, as the picture online showed.

-There wasn't nearly enough linens in the house for 12 people, especially after having to change out all the dirty ones upon arrival

-Garbage cans outside were all full, so there was no place to put our garbage.

-Only 2 of the six outlets in the kitchen worked

-Patio furniture was worn and broken

-Drywall tape falling off the patio ceiling

-No BBQ grill at this property, even though it states there's one in the description online.

If you're looking for a "FABULOUS" vacation rental, keep looking.........THIS ISN'T IT!!!!!!

I can say for certain, I would never rent anything from "Sweet Home Vacation rentals" , and I may never use VRBO again.

Great Place, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for a wedding and it was great! We loved the location and the place was gorgeous. We did pay extra for the heated pool/spa, and it wasn't as warm as we thought it would be, and if you are staying for a longer time, make sure to bring your own toilet paper and dishwasher soap- the resort provides your first set but after that you are on your own. Overall we had a lovely time and would recommend this place to anyone! :)

Owner's Response: We thank you for your feedback and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Unfortunately, all of our vacation homes are self-catering and daily items are not supplied. However we do provide the complimentary set of starter items to assist our guests for an easy start. We apologize for the inconvenience you had with the pool/spa heating, we do set it to a standard temperature in correspondence to the on-site weather. Please let us know if you are looking to book a future stay, we do offer a return guest discount. We hope to host your stay again in our home! Thanks again for choosing us and it was a pleasure hosting your stay!

Highly disappointing!!!

  • 2 of 5

A very dated property, in that it has not had maintenance in over 5 years (last time a member of our party stayed here). There are holes in walls where curtain rods have been pulled out of the walls and the brackets reinstalled a few inches from the original location. The bar stools in the kitchen have broken legs - we would not even allow a 5 year old to sit on them! There are no consumable supplies in the kitchen or baths, other than cutlery, plates, cooking utensils in the kitchen, and miniature bars of soap in each bathroom. (I have stayed at many other rental properties, all of which provided basics such as salt/pepper, sugar, coffee filters and coffee, bath gel, etc. To have that not provided was ridiculous. The power outlets in the kitchen on either side of the stove do not work, nor does the light over the stove. The furniture is worn; beds are low - box springs and mattresses sit on the floor! The grout in the 1st floor master bath is chipped, discolored, and just NASTY! Upon arrival, the outside trash and recycle bins were both full of trash; it took multiple calls to get them taken care of. The pool looked as though it had not been cleaned in weeks; even if it had been heated (additional fee for that) we would not have used it for fear of catching some disease. The on-premises company was not helpful, always referring us to the 'company we rented from.' The resort property promotes happy hour at the tiki bar; no one was working it the 2 times we went to enjoy it. All said, I would never stay here again, nor would I recommend it to anyone else.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your precise feedback. We are sorry you had a less than perfect experience on your stay. We have notified our cleaning team about the cleanliness of the whole unit including the bathroom in the 1st floor master bedroom and the pool, so this will no longer be an issue. We have also replaced the broken stool in the kitchen as well as the light bulb over the stove. The power outlets in the kitchen have been taken care of by the maintenance team. We are sorry to hear that you felt uncomfortable with our beds, they are purposely designed in a certain way for a contemporary look as seen in the photos. In regards to providing starter supplies in the unit, we strictly limit to minimum items for hygienic reasons. As for the tiki bar at the resort, we have passed on the notes to their customer service. We again apologize for the inconveniences and we would be glad to offer you a special return guest discount on your next stay. Thank you again for your feedback and it was a pleasure hosting your stay. Regards, Sweet Home Vacation

Needs some TLC

  • 2 of 5

This trip was a work trip for 5 coworkers. We rented the house for the private pool and spa , the game room, and the private rooms with bathrooms. IF you rent this place understand that you must call or reach out to the owner to have the pool/spa heat turned on. It did not mention that in the listing and so we showed up to a not heated pool & spa. Called the on site property manager that referred us to the owning company sweet home. Email is by far best way to reach sweet home. I made payment to sweet home and heater was turned on, but of course it takes time to heat up so just a warm spa for our stay. The game room was a little rough. Pool table had only one usable cue, the other cue available had no tip. Foose ball table and air hockey table are of Walmart quality. The house needs some overall TLC as there are many places where things have been moved, but not patched and painted. It looks like the living room curtain rods have been hung three times with the holes left from the other two times. The thermostat has been moved, but the old paint under the old thermostat remains. Looks like there are speaker wires hanging out of the ceiling on the patio area. Speakers or a TV out there would be great. Although the screen door on the patio area was cut around where the lock/opener was located. The place was fairly clean, but by no means hotel quality. Lots of dirt dust in the tracks for the sliding doors. Hairs found in showers and sinks. This could be a very nice place, but seems to be owned by sweet home vacations located in the UK possibly and just not managed well at the local level. It worked great for us even with all the disappointments. Just rent with low expectations and understand you are renting a great house in OK condition.

Owner's Response: Hi Joseph, Thank you for your valuable feedback. We have passed all the feedback you have provided to our property managers to have all the items addressed. I am happy to say, with pictures from them that all the rough edges have been ironed out. We would like to welcome you back to one of our 2000+ vacation rentals in the area in the future. Please mention your booking ID, and we'd be glad to offer you a special discount. Warm regards, Sweet Home Vacation

Well maintained vacation home in a lovely resort

  • 4 of 5

Like most people, where were excited to rent a vacation home in Florida but were a little hesitant because of some of the horror stories you find on the internet. When we passed through the gates at Emerald Island Resort, all that nervous-excitement went away (to my great relief). From the gatehouse, to the grounds this resort is well looked after and far more resort like than we expected. We were surrounded by like minded families, you MUST stay here!

Good relaxing pace

  • 5 of 5

When we booked this villa, all we wanted was a good vacation experience and weren't expecting much else given past experiences. We were so close to Walt Disney World, the kids said they could smell the churros lol The on site staff were friendly and helpful, they even found something we hadn't experienced before Crystal Springs manatees! We got to spend the day with them, swimming and cruising down the river system. How humbling it was to see how gentle these creatures were, we are going to make it a yearly trek!
