Very nice area with beautiful accommodations .
One of the nicest VRBO places we have stayed. Condo is is clean and well maintained.
Siesta Key condo
Our experience for 5 weeks at this unit was that of minimums. We arrived to find non-functioning AVAC, missing screen in sliding glass door off master bedroom, other screen had worn out rollers preventing screen from moving, clogged vanity drain, dirt hanging from the ceiling in bedroom and living room, internet back up battery and smoke detector battery were weak and beeping throughout one whole night, and the list goes on. The pictures on the VRBO site glorify a very tired unit. Although the owners attempted to fix broken items, it was obvious that they knew about most of these problems before we arrived. We will definitely NOT return.
A CASE OF VIOLATING THE CONTRACT RULES -- THESE GUESTS BROKE SEVERAL RULES OF THEIR CONTRACT. WE HAD THE RIGHT TO EVICT THEM BUT WE DIDN'T. (Our mistake). As usual, the condo was in excellent, clean working condition since every detail is checked and rechecked personally before our guests arrive. Piece by piece these renters destroyed our condo equipment: froze up the air conditioner, clogged the sink, broke the fridge by overstuffing it, spread super glue on the granite counters and manipulated many other parts of our condo including parking their bikes in the bedroom. In addition they misrepresented the number of guests in their party. This contributed to overcrowding the condo well beyond its capacity. When we advised them about the rental contract they had agreed to, they demanded their money back by phone and threatened to use an attorney. Fortunately, most all of our guests are trustworthy, fair, honest and present the facts as they are. The following is an excerpt of the email we received from Home Away after asking them for help in regard to these issues including the breach of contract by inviting several other relatives and strangers that were not listed in their contract. "Dear Sue, …The owner called us because he is concerned that you are not enjoying your stay and feels that he has made all reasonable accommodations to help you enjoy your vacation… He is also concerned that there are several breaches of the rental agreement you agreed to when booking, specifically the number of people staying in the house. I have attached the agreement for your reference. Please advise that the rental agreement is a legally binding document. If you are found to be in breach of this contract property owner is in full rights to evict you without refund. He would prefer to avoid any further escalations and would like to find an amicable resolution as soon as possible…"
Bring your earplugs!! (Or plan to move out)
I have never written a bad review on vrbo before but we had such a disappointing experience that I have no alternative. The location and condo are great, and we really appreciated the welcome baskets and beach toys. That said, it is a ground floor unit, and the upstairs neighbors were the loudest people I have ever heard- think frat house except without the part where everyone passes and sleeps it off. There was furniture moving, stomping, talking, and dropping things all night long, which kept all of us up and frustrated. Although the hosts recommended that we call security, harassing security and not sleeping was not how we wanted to spend our family vacation. We ended up finding another home and moved out early. We requested the hosts to refund our money for the nights we were not there but they declined. We were very disappointed by being promised a serene vacation home and being confronted with the exact opposite.
Our guests are a beautiful quiet family that were bothered by not so nice or quiet temporary renters when they had trusted and honored us by choosing our condo for their vacation.
We are sorry that this family went through this experience. We do understand the need for absolute quiet for getting young children to nap at various times of day. It was too late for us to react and help by the time we were notified of the problem. They had already left the condo without notifying us until a day later and also did not return the key at the time they left. We did offer them a free stay in the future so the family could experience the normally serene setting of our property which they said was "BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT".
This situation is really about communication and not about the condo's condition or amenities. We provide contact numbers (ours as well as the resort and local authorities) to our guests for just such circumstances and we reside on the island so we are able to respond as soon as we are notified about problems.
If we had been given the opportunity to act, the following solutions could have been offered to our guests:
1. Report the unruly renter to the condo security to remedy the situation. They are very good at that. (We did this when we were notified of the problem.)
2. Relocate our guest to another condo more appropriate for them.
3. Offer our guest free accommodations in the future if the above options were not available. (We did make this offer since we were not provided the opportunity to make other timely arrangements for our guests.)
4. Or with advance notice and the return of the condo key, we would refund the balance of the days they did not stay in our condo.
We pride ourselves on going out of our way to ensure the satisfaction and comfort of our guests (as is supported by many of our other reviews). Give us an opportunity to do so.
Siesta Key heaven
Superb setting, good for everything we needed from the.beach to the golf course. The quality of the home was first class and the little things left on arrival, were very much appreciated especially the fruit bowl. We would recommend this site, and hopefully will be returning in the future. Mike
Great place to unwind!
Spent four days here with my family and everyone had a great time. The beach was nice with plenty of chairs. My kids enjoyed the pool when they got tired of the waves. There are several great places to eat nearby. I would highly recommend!
We had a really great vacation, I will recommed that place to my friends 100%. Owners had everything ready for us at the time of the arrival, they were really friendly and attentive with us. I will come back for sure. Thank you Vickie and family!. We love your apartment.
