Not a clean house

  • 1 of 5

I don’t usually write negative reviews but this time I have to!

We stayed here for a long weekend (3 nights) and I agree with the previous review, when she mentions that the house was not rental ready.

The owner was very responsive when making the reservation and provided all the details to get to the house. However, when we got there, the house was NOT CLEAN!

All toilets had urine (and #2) stains, there was dental floss in one of the bathrooms and toothpaste stains on both sinks.

Regarding the kitchen, the refrigerator was not clean, there were some dishes on the counter (don’t know if clean or not). The tableware is plastic or melamine.

There was some clothe on the dryer, again not sure if clean or not.

As soon as we saw the condition of the house, I sent an email to the owner with some pictures, mainly from the toilets that were disgusting, there was NO response at all. Not even an apology for the inconvenience!

We were already there after a long drive, so we had to buy lot of Clorox and disinfecting wipes, gloves, disposable utensils, plates and cups. Towels and sheets, since we were not sure if they were clean ( thank goodness there is Walmart close by).

If you plan to rent this house, come prepared to clean it yourself and on top of that to get charged a very high cleaning fee!!.

Not a good fit for our family

  • 1 of 5

Sorry, but this was not a good fit. We had talked to the owner of this property (who lives in Canada) several times before we committed, and she did a good job on selling it. This property is getting premium price, but fell very short of the expectations. We have rented in SW Florida for 15 years and this experience has not been a positive due to the many inconveniences and items in need of repair. I had taken photos of everything upon arrival to ensure my damage deposit would be reimbursed at the end of our contract.

There is no pool heater….

The master shower was not useable when we arrived

Both bathrooms had toilets that ran constantly. (My husband fixed both the shower and toilets.)

There are no dressers in any of the bedrooms and it is difficult to live out of a suitcase for a month.

One of the bedrooms did not even have a clothes pole to hang clothes on.

The second bathroom is not caulked properly and water is going behind the wall – mold.

The kitchen was not renter ready. Food from previous renters completely filled the cupboards and pantry.

Not all windows had blinds on them and the ones that did, were broken.

The dishwasher did not clean the dishes.

The handle on the microwave had to be taped to stay on.

The washing machine had mold in it.

The Screen doors on the pool lanai have no locks.

The patio outside the lanai is in total disrepair.

The kitchen lacks pizza cutter, can opener, storage containers, etc.

Damage to doors and walls that have not been repaired.

Location… to far away from the beaches.

I could go on and on. This property needs an on site manager. Phone calls to and from Canada to get problems resolved were not adequate.

Beautiful private home!!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property. The house is in a decent location- not far from beaches, shopping, and many other fun excursions. The house was roomy, clean, and most of all private and at the right price.
