Great Home and a magnificent Stay with Great Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Rolf and Ingrid were extraordinary. The home was comfortable, modern and had everything you can possibly need. It was truly amazing and don't listen to the negative review about the bed. It was totally fine. Rolf made us some great drinks and provided great recommendations while we were there. I will return without question and recommend RolfHause to all my friends. Look forward to returning real soon.. Thank You!!!! Marco Catania and Daniela Occopinti

Excellent vacation home with great owners

  • 5 of 5

We (2adults and a 3 years old girl) stayed in this apartment for 2 weeks. The property ist wonderful and great to relax and calm down. It's only a short drive to beach, nice restaurants and grocery stores.

The apartment itself is clean and cosy. All necessities and even more are provided. The pool area with waterfall and jacuzzi is awesome. Our daughter loved it even more than the beach.

The owners are great and very helpful hosts. If we ever make our way to Florida again we would definitely try to stay here. ***** 5 stars from Germany

Roam Like Home

Rolf and Ingrid's apartment was perfect for our needs. It is in great shape, clean and most importantly had everything we needed from beach chairs, beach toys, a parasol and all the way through to cooking and clothes washing facilities. Myself, my wife and our 18 month old daughter stay there for a week and it was stressless experience.

Access to their private pool and jacuzzi was an excellent perk for an evening swim or taking a break from the beach after too much direct sun.

Rolf and Ingrid are the very definition of fantastic people that were helpful hosts in recommending restaurants, activities and attractions. We are extremely grateful for their warm spirited hospitality.

Great rental

  • 4 of 5

Let me start off saying, for the price of the rental, you would be silly not to book.

The pros: THE POOL!!! I love love love their pool. The fact that you have the benefit of using it and not have to share the pool with a hotel, its amazing. They have kept their property in such great condition. It was perfect. The rental itself is super cute, well maintained. The owners, I only got to meet Rolf and he is such a nice guy. Great person to talk to.

The reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the mattress. God it did a number on my back and my husband's. We are so use to memory foam mattresses I suppose that I just couldn't tolerate the spring of the matress we slept on. Also the lack of cookware. I know what you are thinking, who cooks on vacation right? lol However I do like to cook when the mood strikes and one pot didn't cut it for me. Another plus is the shower pressure...omg it was so good. I feel that if there were a few upgrades done here and there, I would more than happily pay more.

As a home owner and a person that wants to protect your investment, I would put a barrier between the rug and the tile of the bathroom, because if you have people that aren't careful or careless, water can seep into the rug and it would be a mold issue later on.

Thank you for having such a great rental. I can't wait for the opportunity to stay again. Take care :)

Owner's Response: Hello and thanks for your review. Sorry you didn't find all the pots and pans in the drawer under the oven. I wish you would have asked, as we'd be happy to point them out. We even have a wok there. We appreciate your observations about the mattress and the rug and will look into making those adjustments.
