Spacious, comfortable & a great deal!

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious home, and a great deal for the money!! The view is nice - right by a canal, where we routinely saw aligators, lots of birds and even a bobcat! There's a small park walking distance, great if you want to take a morning walk. The neighborhood is quiet, peaceful and very safe. Plenty of restaurants, shops and beach all 5 to 15 min drive away. Would definitely recommend it if you want a quiet retreat!

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this beautiful home. The view from the lanai is gorgeous & relaxing. House is spacious & very well stocked with pretty much everything you would need. Located close to the neighborhood park, playground & tennis courts. Close to several beaches & restaurants. Vanessa was wonderful to work with & responds quickly. Loved our stay here!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful comments. We try to exceed expectations... you can always rent a place but renting a home away from home is something special. We try so hard to ensure that items like toilet paper, soap, paper towels, additional clean towels, and extra linens are available upon your arrival...the grill is clean and ready to use...extra dishes, glasses, coffee mugs, bowls and even a wine opener is available for our guest to use... My husband and I have stayed at other homes and B&B's in the past and it's amazing how you might have one cup, one dish, one set of silverware per person, very limited supplies and then something like soap and even toilet paper is overlooked...nothing worse than a long drive to get to your destination and then realizing the basics are missing...we try not to let that happen...however if something is wrong tell us and we will try to correct the situation... Communication is key and thank you for sharing any issues you noticed with the house...for example the one toilet that kept running (we have 3 full bathrooms) ...without you telling us this we couldn't have made the necessary repairs...these thing happen but we try to correct the situation whenever possible...for the record this has been fixed...you were amazing guest and we hope to see you again in a future visit to the area.

Property is beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

The pool is not heated and with the cool January temps the pool was so cold we couldn’t get in. That was a big disappointment! The stove needs replacement since 2 burners do not work and the oven and broiler do not seem to get up to proper temperature. The pantry was well stocked with salt, spices, flour etc.. The bed linens were top grade and there were lots of towels. It was well worth the cost of the rental.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Our property is spacious and we have considered our guest for things often over looked at places that I've rented in the past. Extra plates, pots, pans, ample silverware, cups, glasses, wine opener, can opener, coffee maker, etc. these items are always at our vacation home...it's amazing that some vacation homes that my husband and I have stayed at in the past offered just one roll of toilet paper, one dish per person, one set of silverware for both of us...etc. I'm sure that if you've traveled and stayed at other homes you have experienced the same thing...washing my dish or cup or pan for that matter is something I don't want to have to do all the time prefer to load the dishwasher and out the door you go...a nice lobster tail or steak prepare it on the grill when your back from the beach and your ready to eat. Of course the food you have to provide the grill we have... As far as the heated pool we have decided to go the direction of solar heat ...this will be available before next winter season possibly even sooner. Concerning the stove...was only aware of one burner not working this issue was corrected. With this maintenance issue we offered to fix the situation during your stay but you declined having anyone in the home for scheduling reasons. We respect our guest privacy during their vacation and we do attempt to schedule repairs between renters. If it's a more serious matter repairs are made immediately. We are always looking for ways to make our home more user friendly we recently added 2 adult bikes there are so many trails in the area and 2 chaise lounges to catch some rays on the lanai... Hope you consider our home for future trips to the area of course with your furry member of your family...Sophie...

Owner's Response: Thank you Mary for your response. We have never stated that we do have a heated pool. But we are considering adding solar panels when it is in the budget. When visiting Florida during the winter months its sometimes chilly. For this reason, we don't often consider getting into the pool. But we pursue other interest like exploring one of the many trails with the bikes, searching for shark teeth on the beach, or taking a day trip to Sarasota or Naples. Cooking a steak out on the grill anytime, especially in the Winter Months of December-March tastes amazing and gazing into blue skies always warms the soul. With or without a heated pool, Florida beats the often gray gloomy skies of winter up North for us and our guest.

Truly a Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Once again another great stay at our home away from home. It's a very well kept home with all the amenities and more. We love eating outside on the lanai and looking at the canal and watching nature. It's very peaceful.

Thank you again Vanessa for being so very accommodating. Can't wait until our next visit.

Positives and Negatives

  • 3 of 5

In the credit column....

The property was clean, light, airy, comfortable and spacious. It was well equipped, so easy to cook in or barbecue when not taking advantage of the numerous eating out opportunities.

The property benefitted from recent redecoration and re-carpeting.

Set up was good with three good double bedrooms and a twin.

Plenty of TVs & good wifi.

On the debit side.....

The pool and lanai only benefitted from direct sun early & mid day, so not ideal for relaxing outside. The unheated pool was just too cold to use.

Old style TVs and outside furniture provide opportunities for updating. Strangely, there were two TVs in one bedroom.

The absence of a home phone was far from ideal when you want to make local reservations.

Provision of a garage door remote would also be useful.

The owner missed a couple of opportunities to exceed customer expectations - declining early first morning access simply to drop off luggage & declining last day lunchtime checkout. There were no other renters occupying the property on those days.

More responsive communication from the owner would have helped the experience.

To address the functional debits should be relatively easy. What would really make a step difference - in the highly competitive Rotonda rental market - would be provision of customer friendly service and communication.

Owner's Response: Customer Service is very important to us and we do respond to request in a timely fashion. However, a request such as an early check-in or check-out can often not be accommodated. Our check-in is after 4:00 pm on the date of arrival and the check-out time is no later than 11:00 am the date of departure. This is clearly stated in the Short Term Lease that you had signed. Concerning this particular stay we did try to work with you, by offering you an earlier check-in at 1:00 pm. Which was not acceptable to you since you wanted access at 7:00 am. If being in the home at such an early arrival was very important to you and the 3 other guest, traveling with you, maybe it would have been better to have booked arrival for the day prior. Concerning the late check-out that was denied, we needed to have the house cleaned and ready for the next guest that would be arriving the following day. Having our own business we support small business owners whenever possible. Our cleaning staff is an independent and owns their own business...and we schedule way in advance to prepare our home for other guest. Although a call was made to our cleaning service, our home was on their busy schedule for 11:00 am the day you were leaving. For this reason, we once again had to deny your second request for a later check-out around 1:00 pm because it would be more convenient for yourself based on your flight time. There is no garage door opener available for our guest. In the past, these do not end up being returned and we need to reset the code and purchase another opener. Unlike many homes in Florida we actually have use to our garage and so do our guest. So for the slight inconvenience we will not be offering a garage door opener. In addition, to having the house cleaned, there is often maintenance that is needed, this is usually scheduled between rental stays and we never know what issues with our home with 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and a pool might arise. We always want our guest to have the best experience possible so that means clean towels, sheets, bathrooms, toilets that flush, water that runs, a coffee machine (I'm a big coffee person can't function without it), access to wifi and cable and many other amenities is more important. With the low rate that you had during your stay and a comfortable stay for 4 Men sorry if all expectations were not met. But thank you for your feedback.
