  • Wonderful location
    4 of 5

    Our stay in January of 2019 was wonderful with one exception. The property is very nice and well supplied, we had plenty of room for the 9 of us. We saw manatees in the canal daily. The only issue was the pool, when we arrived it was 80 degrees. We turned the heater up to 85 and the temperature started dropping. It dropped to 75 and stayed there even though the heater ran constantly. Since we chose this property because of the heated pool this made the pool unusable. We called Debbie the local contact, she stated that she was the house keeper and didn't get paid for extra services but tried to help the owner out. She said she called the pool guy and he said it was working fine. We then made 3 more calls over the next 2 days and could not get anything done. I finally sent a message through VRBO to Tim Adkins, I never received a response but the pool guy did show up, he found that the heater had no freon in it and also repaired multiple leaks in the filter system. He said he had to send the AC company out to put the freon in, which they did on Tuesday. The AC man said that the heater has issues and that the freon would continue to leak out. The pool took all of Tuesday to heat up and was usuable on Wednesday and for the rest of our week. I sent another message through VRBO to Mr. Adkins about the fact that the pool was not usable for 4 of the 7 days we were at the property. I feel some adjustment in the rental price is only fair as we chose this property because of the heated pool. I never heard anything back, but received only my 500.00 deposit as promised. I will recommend this property but just know there are issues with the pool. The water level drops constantly and you can't depend on the heater, and depending on the time of the year and the temperature this may be an issue. While I feel that the attempt to fix the problem finally happened there was no communication from Mr Adkins as to what would happen or even as to the fact he received my messages. We spent a good amount on this rental and the heated pool was one of the reasons we chose this property, not having use of it did effect the vacation.

  • Perfection!

    This was by far one of the nicest places I have ever stayed at. Beautifully furnished and very clean. Elevator was a definitive plus as the house is three stories. Phenomenal location right on the ocean. Private pool located right next to the home for the use of the 14 houses that comprised this gated community. The views from the patios, roof and hot tub were great. We saw manatee, iguana and sea birds galore. The owner thought of everything from fully equipped kitchen, hair dryers, shampoo, laundry detergent and garbage bags. There were fishing poles available to fish off the dock. Larry was very accommodating and made the whole process seamless. Great middle of the Keys location so we could visit both Key Largo and Key West, and all points in between with ease. You will not be disappointed.
