Great location

  • 3 of 5

The house sits in a great location. We fished from the dock, saw a variety of birds, and even some dolphins. I loved having coffee on the deck and watching the water. When we walked in, the floors, bath tub, and handrailing was not clean. The property management was very prompt on trying to fix the problem. Someone came the following day to reclean the floors. We still had to roll up the carpets bc they were so old and full of grime. The furnitute is outdated and worn out. Three of the four beds were very comfortable with clean linens. The last was very squeaky. The outside needs some major attention. The grill and outside tables were covered in bird droppings, road dirt, and spider webs. The pool decking turned to a layer of black mud once it was wet. We tried to use the hose to spray it off but it wasn't long enough.

I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with little kids. The two smaller beds/rooms are on the bottom floor right by the outside doors. One leads to the driveway and the other the pool. With a good bit of TLC and the money from one weeks visitors, this house could be a gem!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your valued feedback. We are glad you enjoyed this truly unique location. The mentioned issues have been resolved and cleaned up. We had a tropical storm dumping lots of rain, creating messes and prohibiting safe outdoor work for property management.

Great location.

  • 3 of 5

The house was spacious and in a great location. Property manager was responsive to requests. There were a couple of issues requiring attention including the heating of and pump on the pool and an electrical problem which required repairs. Some of the beach equipment was in poor shape. We purchased a wagon to haul beach gear on our walk which I would recommend. The furnishings were not high quality but sufficient for a beach house. Plenty of room for a large group.

Older than you think

  • 2 of 5

Location is great, but the photos we used to make our decision were misleading. The home is older and in a poorer condition compared to the photos make you believe. Pool and hot water were cold upon arrival, after asking for warmer temps the mgmt group responded very quickly. Cleanliness of the home was very good. One of the beds made so much noise when you laid down you did not want to move throughout the night. If you don’t mind an outdated home with lots of miles on it location is great.

Location makes up for dated property

  • 4 of 5

Spent a week at this property in Feb 2018. Location is great; 5 min walk to the beach and at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. The house is well-stocked with a kayak, bikes, fishing poles, beach chairs, towels, grill, etc. The house was clean but some of the furniture is worn to the point of being uncomfortable and in some instances completely unusable.

The most bizarre part of the house (which is saying a lot because it's an octagon and has a quirky layout and the decor alternates from recently updated to 1980s chic room to room) is there are no clocks outside the kitchen. Also, the plumber who piped the showers in the house is passive aggressive towards tall people. If you're taller than 5'10" your head will be above the shower fixtures and you'll have to do a contortion act to wash your hair and you will inevitably knock your head.

Property manager was responsive to pre-arrival questions.

Perfect location and a great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week in Kings Kew and enjoyed it thoroughly.

The house is perfectly located in walking distance to the beach and despite this in a very quiet resiential area.

The house itself is nice and well equipped. Some equipment (beach stuff, bicycles) was in poor shape but this was really minor compared to the overall comfort of the house.

The management of the house was very helpful and forecoming.

Hence, we only can recommend a stay in Kings Kew!

Nice and relaxed stay. Very good location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice vacation in Bonita Springs. The house is already a little "used", but everything worked fine. The communication with Alexander Mayr was perfect and very fast. The Location with the beach nearby is also very good. Therefore we give 5/5 points.
