Beware -- Owner is not trustworthy
I would normally not write a review of any kind, much less a negative one. However, I feel it is necessary to warn travelers to not rent this property from this owner.
On our 2nd morning in the house, we discovered that something had been eating our food in the middle of the night. I contacted Lorenzo, who proceeded to tell me that there were rats in the house, and that he had just discovered the situation 2 days earlier. He blamed it on the prior renters burning some eggs and then leaving the doors open to air the house out. Of course, that would have been nice to know up front. Whether his story is true or not, I have no idea (although I have come to doubt it), but I explained to him that there was no way that my wife and 2 children would be able to continue to sleep in a house that had rats running around in it. Because I was under the impression that he was put in a bad situation by the prior tenant, I generously offered to only ask for 4 of the remaining 5 nights rent to be refunded, along with my security deposit, and Lorenzo agreed to that. Of course, I then had to find alternative accommodations in Naples for the remainder of our trip, which cost me an additional sum of money, not to mention the inconvenience of having to pack up and move mid-vacation. All in all, not a good situation, but I told myself that things happen sometimes that can't be controlled, and we dealt with it.
However, after 2 weeks of waiting for my money to be refunded, I texted Lorenzo and he refunded my security deposit, but not the 4 nights of rent that he agreed to refund. Three days later, I contacted him again asking when the rest of my money would be refunded, and he did not reply. I texted him twice more over the next 5 days, and again he did not reply and has not replied to this day. He has apparently decided that he is entitled to keep all of my money for the 5 nights that my family decided to not stay in his rat infested house. I guess the one night's rent that I offered to let him keep wasn't enough for him. What a wonderful human being.
In summary, DO NOT rent this house from this man. The house is infested with rats, which I guess is appropriate considering the behavior of it's owner.
5 Stars only to ensure I get your attention!
I never expected that VRBO would offer such a poorly maintained property.
Rented this place for 4 nights, left as soon as we witnessed an infestation of RATS. The rodents have created a nest in one of the bedroom closets full of dirty boxes.
Woke up in the middle of the night with a rat attempting to crawl up my bedside table, then went to find many others running throughout the house, on the kitchen counters! In the morning there was feces scattered throughout the entire house. Holes located within the ceiling, chewed boxes of food in cabinets and many other signs of obvious rodent issues, disgusting property! After leaving the property after only two nights the owner did credit me for the two nights we did not stay. Although he decided to keep my $500.00 Security deposit, stating we created the infestation?!?! Great way to pay for your own personal issues you can’t afford to pay for yourself. Hopefully you will not be renting this property solely based on this brutally honest review, but, if you need more reasons not to rent this property keep reading: Old bleached stained sheets-really.., Lanai had no screens, 5-TV’s, only one worked, 4th bedroom is a garage, found a floating towelette in the pool, old boats scattered around the property, no grass, all dirt yard, house has never been cleaned properly, hope this helps you make your decision.
Friendly, spacious, great location
Lorenzo was a great host. The property is great for large groups. We had 8 people and still seemed un-crowded . The pool was perfect and the lanai space is excellent
We will look to rent again
Great, Great, Great!!
Steve was a pleasure to have.
They were clean, pleasant and great communication.
Thamk you Steve!!
It was perfect for us!
This place was awesome! We enjoyed all the open space in the house and the property is not crammed next to neighbors like a lot of places in Naples. The speaker system throughout the house was cool to have music playing while we hung out. Lorenzo made us feel welcome, would love to stay again if back in Naples.
Perfect house for a weekend trip
Spacious..nice pool..exactly as described.
Kyle and guests were great and. Very respectful of the house.. They're welcome back anytime.
Truly a Home away from Home
Lorenzo's home is perfect for your family to get away and have fun together. We loved the layout so everyone could have privacy. The technology (internet, tvs, etc.) were easy to utilize. The pool was relaxing and the firepit allowed us to engage in wonderful conversations. We will most certainly be back. Thanks a million!
All I can say is...Wow!!
Diana and her family were amazing guests. Although I have had a great all around experiences with all my guestes I have never recieved my house back as pristine as Diana and family left it.
Thank you Diana for the great communication and care. Hope to see you next time!!!
