Very spacious, well equipped and family friendly property!

  • 5 of 5

My family vacation couldn’t have been better. We were allowed to bring our family dog along for a fair non-refundable pet deposit fee. The king sized bed was big enough to comfortably fit 3 people. There were plenty of blankets and pillows to keep us comfortable. There were also things like beach chairs and towels available for us to use which was a relief because we underpacked a bit for the beach. The host was very friendly and acommodating to our questions and needs. He was very open with us and understanding about a minor damage incident. The backyard was beautiful and spacious. There was a table and seating with an overhead umbrella in the backyard, as well as a grill (which we didn’t use but was nice to know was available). The backyard has a nice spot on the left side where there’s a lot of tropical leaves, perfect for family pictures/little jungle inspired photoshoots. The front porch had comfortable chairs to sit outside and enjoy a beautiful view with the lovely weather. Thank you so much for having us, Carey! Look forward to possibly staying here again someday

Fun in the Sun

  • 4 of 5

Thanks to Carey and Elsa for allowing my family to stay at their home. The house was spacious and provided enough indoor and outdoor space for all to enjoy. The house had enough of the basic supplies needed for our stay. The house was convenient to all of the places we needed to go and extremely close to Ft. Lauderdale International.

I especially appreciate that the home came equipped with a beach umbrella, towels and chairs that were great for our multiple beach trips. The laundry was great also. The mango trees in the yard provided fantastic snacks during our stay.

Nice place to stay!

Nice house in good location, some minor annoyances

  • 4 of 5

This house made a great "base of operations" for our family. Beds were comfortable and lots of linens provided. The house was roomy enough it worked well even the night we had both bedrooms in use and a person sleeping on the fold out in the living room. Property owners were attentive and texted often to check in.

My suggestions to the owners to improve the experience for vacationers would be:

1) Type up a list of things they want people to know about the house so guests don't have to spend 10-15 minutes on the phone immediately upon arriving to hear the run down

2) Put thick curtains on the east-facing bedroom windows - we found we woke up as soon as the sun came up and could not fall back asleep even though we were jet-lagged

3) Include in the property description that you expect guests to strip the beds the morning they leave - as we had an early flight this was not convenient to find out after arriving. This is not a big deal and it is not unusual for VRBO owners to ask this of guests but usually it is in the description so you know before you book.

4) If you have people staying for a week make sure to leave ample supplies like toilet paper and hand soap so guests do not have to purchase these items when they run out.

5) If you place breakable decorative items next to bedside lamps, realize they may get knocked over when a guest reaches for the light. It was kind of insulting to be asked to leave a $20 replacement fee when I reported that I accidentally broke something when reaching for the light.

All in all we had a good stay here - the house is spacious and nice enough and the neighborhood is nice and well-located - but the VRBO experience would be improved if the hosts did less "checking in" and more preparing the house for guests to not need to contact them during their stay.
