Beautiful home and pool! We loved it.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was clean and the property was beautiful. We loved seeing the horses and swimming in the pool. The house was spacious and the den was cozy. We were very grateful that we could bring Lola. She is a large American Bulldog and it can be hard finding people/places that will allow her to stay. She is a good girl and Michelle is very kind so it all.worked out!!

The only minor complaint was a bit of traffic noise from 95 and power lines in front of the property. We live in the Fl. Keys so perhaps we are a bit spoiled in that regard. Before renting we noticed that someone said the roosters and chickens were loud. We didn't have that problem at all. Yes, we did hear them in the morning, but it wasn't at all intrusive and we slept well.

The house had everything we needed and Michelle made sure to check in with us. Lovely place. We would stay again!

We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your rental home. Being on the outskirts of Melbourne on the roomy property made it feel a little like being in a quiet country setting but was still close to all of the conveniences of the area like shopping, golf, beaches, and restaurants. The private yard and pool were very relaxing, the home was clean and tidy and had everything we needed, and the owner (Michele) was very friendly and easy to work with. We also enjoyed seeing the various animals on the property (horses, chickens, turkeys, geese).

Large and very attractive.

  • 3 of 5

The landlord, Michelle was very responsive to any issue we had during our stay.

The property is attractive and the house is quite large. Swimming pool is very large and would be great in warm weather.

Chicken coops including rooster right under bedrooms.

Major issue as rooster starts crowing at 3:30 each morning so it is not possible to sleep much past that.

Owner's Response: Great pleasant guests! Clean and enthusiastic about the horses that reside on the property. As we are on the property twice a day to feed and care for the horses,chickens, rooster, ducks & goose, it would have not been a problem to relocate the rooster and chickens to the other side of the property. Sure wish I would have known. Their sweet lil dog, was friendly with our Goldendoodle.

Really enjoyed the open spaces and pond at the property. The horses and other animals at the property were very friendly. Would love to stay there again during our next visit to Melbourne.
