Booking and check in were great. But that was about all. We got into the house the first night and just went to bed. Upon waking up we noticed ants everywhere. No food left in the open. This was an infestation. I contacted owner immediately. They only want to have communication privately not through VRBO. I started out being nice and trying to help them. They told me to buy ant traps from Home Depot which I did. Did not help. Three days later they still did not get an exterminator out. So I had to leave. This was supposed to be a vacation not a lessen on exterminating an ant infestation. I spent three days of cleaning non stop and killing ants. Which I did not get paid to do. I was told full refund, Ha they gave me barely half. I had to launder all of our clothes because we had ants in all of our luggage. No food in our luggage either. Beware. Some of the features like the bathroom were not as shown in the pictures listed. Neighborhood is safe but far from everything.
Wir können nichts dagegen machen, dass es sehr, sehr viel geregnet hat! Aus diesem Grund sollte man aber kein Mobiliar beschädigen. Es sind Ameisen ins Haus gekommen. Am 13.8. bei der Endreinigung - wenige Stunden vor der Anreise - waren keine Ameisen im Haus! Bei den Gästen zuvor - keine Ameisen! Was ist passiert? Wir haben eine Firma beauftragt, aber da hatte der Gast das Haus verlassen. Wir haben ohne rechtliche Grundlage 60 % erstattet, nicht nur die Hälfte - man sollte bei der Wahrheit bleiben.
Sorry, but we cannot do about the many, many rain. For this reason you should not damage any furniture. Ants are coming in the house, but on 08/13 was an endcleaning, few hours before arrival - no ants! By the guests before - no ants. What's happened? We send a company, but you leave. We have legally refunded 60 %, you should stay with true.
Beautiful Place!!! Will definitely be back soon!
I’m always a little nervous renting places. This place exceeding all my expectations! The property is beautiful on the outside and inside! Bedroom space was perfect! Great size walk in closets. It was very nice having basically two living rooms. The pool was beautiful! Perfect size! The temperature of the water was very comfortable. The little waterfall in it was a nice bonus. At nighttime the pool lights up and is gorgeous. So relaxing. We ate outside by the pool a lot on the outdoor dining table. The pool area was screened it to prevent bugs from coming in but we still could lay out and get some sun!
I was worried about driving distance to the beach but it was so easy! A short 30 minute drive.
Monika was very easy to work with and very accommodating. She always got back to me in a timely fashion and I felt she genuinely just...wanted us to have a good time. That is exactly what we did! This was a great family vacation!
I highly recommend this beautiful place to anyone!
Thank you so much, Michelle! I hope you come back again.
Disaster- would give it a minus 5 star
Pro: 1. Quiet and safe neighborhood with small lakes to go for a walk and relax.
2. Cleanliness of the home was adequate.
Con: 1. The street was too dark to identify the home at night.
2. Lots of Cockroaches right as we walked in. Killed them all by crushing.
3. No hot water. The owner was informed. She wanted us to call their plumber!!
4. The home is pretty old complete with green carpet, spray on stucco ceiling, gold paint in the master bath, "holy" bedspread, frayed sheets, etc.
5. After 4 days of no hot water or response from the owner, we had to leave as my bones became extremely painful due to my cancer
6. They had no space for a car park as the garage had their car parked inside. To make matters worse, there were ceiling mounted storage which would prevent an SUV like ours from being brought in.
7. Missing garage door opener. Despite my advice to get another one from Home Depot (prior to our arrival), nothing was done.
8. Bottom line: we are seeking the advice of our counsel. Given the fact, there are hundreds if not thousands of properties available under various renting agencies, make sure you can walk out with such neglected poorly maintained places.
Can you believe it? No guest before and no guest after this time has a problem with the water. The own problem is the way from the water-heater to the master-bathroom - you must wait. But we have all time hot water! Yes, indeed, we are very angry that the last guests had take the garage door opener away, but you can open the garage door by electric. Sorry for all inconvenciences!
Nice Quiet Niehborhood
Nice home in a quiet neighborhood. Owners were very helpful. Pool was nice once it was fixed.
Lovely and relaxing
Visiting from the UK ,although the weather was a bit cooler than expected,it was much better than back home!!
We played golf 4 times and just wandered and chilled out around the area.
Very convenient to supermarket and other areas
Beautiful place! Great vacation and location! Monika was great to deal with and informative as well! Will definitely stay again!
The stunning kilometer-long white beaches on Anna Maria Island can be reached in about a 30 minute drive. Pure swimming fun. Not rare: dolphins in open nature! Anna Maria is always a secret tip! The villa is located in the community of 'Branden River Lakes'. In addition to the communal pool, our small guests can play on the playground, a tennis court is available free of charge. Supermarkets (Publix, Wal Mart) and small restaurants (Chinese, Mexican, traditional hamburger) are nearby. After a 15 minute drive, you can reach the outlet mall in Ellenton (among others, Hilfiger, R. Lauren, DKNY, GAP) and a 30 minute drive to Florida's cultural capitol of Sarasota, including Ringeling Museum. The amusement parks in Orlando, Disney Land, Sea World, Universal Studios or Kennedy Space Center are just under a 2 hour drive. Don't forget: Busch Gardens, about 1 hour. Nearby you will find multiple golf courses.
Other Activities: ride motorboat, directly from the dock
