The owner takes great pride in making this a home away from home. Cozy and comfortable and well furnished. Neat and clean and the area is quiet. So nice.

Winter get away

  • 3 of 5

The owner's of this place were very pleasant and helpful and this is a cute little house with a very comfortable bed. There was a good supply of dishes, pots and pans etc. We enjoyed the shade of the live oak trees and the warm weather. My biggest complaint is that after airing our clothes out for two days in below 20's weather I still had to rewash everything to get rid of the musty smell from the house. I would recommend professional cleaners for the house, especially furniture and carpets. There is also a soft spot in the floor around the toilet. This may be caused from leaking water and could pose a mold threat. My other complaint is that it was to have wi-fi acess. This was accessible only in certain parts of the house and then not full acess.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that your stay in the "little house" was not a good experience for you. I have been renting it for about 15 years and this is my first complaint. We easily could have fixed the Wi-Fi issue but you didn't let me know there was a problem. The floor around the toilet will be repaired. I keep the a/c on when the home is not occupied and I'm sorry about your clothes. I know both of you don't much care for Florida in the first place. Maybe you will find something more suitable next time. Mary Parker

Cozy, comfortable, clean

  • 5 of 5

The little house is cozy, clean and comfortable. It is very convenient to shopping and major roadways.

We were pleasantly surprised by all the little extras provided by the landlady, Mary: soaps, paper towels, paper plates, cups, napkins, tissues and laundry detergent
