Older rather run-down house in good location
We've used VRBO a lot, and this is the first time I've ever posted a negative review. When we arrived, the house had not been cleaned. I called the contact info, and the cleaners sent someone out within an hour. We waited while the house was cleaned; they did a so-so job and we found dirty dishes in the cupboard later. Once we were in, we discovered lights not working, and the house lacking basic amenities like enough dishes, towels, pot holders, trash bags, etc. We emailed the owner the next morning, and he came that day to provide dishes, dish towels, etc, and fix the kitchen light. The dishwasher, which the owner said was new, did not function properly, so we ended up buying paper plates and washing dishes by hand for our 4-day stay. On our way out, the cleaners arrived before the scheduled checkout and stood outside waiting for us to leave, which was a bit unnerving.
The backyard is lovely, but shared by two other units so not private. The house is on busy Gulf Drive, so can be a bit noisy in the front rooms. The house is nearly right across the street from a beach access and within walking distance of a 7-11 and a couple restaurants, so the location is excellent.
If you enjoy spending time in the house, then this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a place near the beach just to sleep at night, then you could consider it.
The property was just as the pictures represented.
This property is just like you see, nothing too precious to worry about here. Just a nice, clean well stocked w/essentials home base for going to the beach which was across the street. Plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. Broke n Bored across the street was a nice surprise as far as how delicious the food was. The kids had plenty of room to run amok for the few minutes we actually spent indoors. Will definitely recommend to others to stay there.
We enjoyed everything about our stay. The house was just as advertised. The back yard was a huge bonus. We would definitely consider this if we chose to come back to this area again. I would highly recommend this to everyone.
Clean place with a great dock and neighbors!
I would stay here again. I wish there were more restaurants within walking distance, but there are many means of transportation around. Thank you, Dick!!
Loved the location . Beach and intercoastal
not the worst but would not book again
The dishwasher did not work, had to take a plunger to the drain in the shower neither- one drained good. The bathroom with the tub had a musty smell to it, and the exhaust fans did not work in either bathroom. The HVAC system did not work as it should, dryer took 3 cycles to dry the clothes, the bunk bead squeaked loudly with every single movement the kids made. Also the parking was very limited, hard to park two cars in the space provided.
Overall this was not the worst place I've stayed at and it made an alright home base for the 8 days the we stayed in the area. It was walking distance to the beach and close to a very good pizza place called Beach Pizza.
I'm sorry for all the issues you had with the house. I only wish you would have contacted me about these issues because they would have been corrected immediately. Why didn't you mention anything? Unfortunately, many of the issues had not been a problem until you arrived. Murphy's law I guess. I will say that the bathroom tub and shower were cleaned extra as I noticed they musty smell as well. I will check the fan today as well.
as for the bunk bed.....I'll see if I can tighten it up a bit but I've never known a bunk bed that didn't wiggle and squeak a bit....
The dishwasher was JUST replaced. !! i really wish you would have let me know about that ! I haven't heard that it is not working from my cleaning crew or any other guests yet but i will go out and check it...
The parking in Redington shores is the BEST in any beach area. NO beach hamlet offers as many free offstreet parking spots. Everywhere else require permits or meters. I also allow guests to pull on to my grass if you needed more room. So I just don't know how you could have had an issue with only two cars.
The dryer will take longer if you don't clean the lint filter after every use. BTW I don't advertise the washer or dryer in my listing. I just provide it as a courtesy and its all FREE even the detergent. So I find it odd to complain about something that wasn't advertised and that is free.
Again, I wish that i would have been given the chance to remedy the issues you had rather as things do happen.
Boat or Beach!! situated on the ICW for boating or fishing and relaxing on the dock and directly across the street from the beach..Best of both worlds!!
