It was the perfect getaway we were looking for. We brought a lot of our own stuff but the house is stocked with everything you would need. The pool was clean and where we spent most of our time. The house backs up right to a canal where we witnessed a dolphin that caught a fish, was so cool. When we got too hot we went inside and played ping-pong. There was a PlayStation and some other video game thing which we didn't take advantage of but I'm sure would be nice if you had kids with you. Everything is pretty convenient and close like Publix and Walmart. There's plenty of restaurants around but the house was so relaxing and had plenty of entertainment for us we didn't even leave. We would definitely stay here again!
I will start with the positives, the outside appearance of the property was nice, as was the pool, lanai, location and orientation on the canal. That being said, the most prominent item in the "living room" is a huge ping pong table, so if you don't play, it's a waste of space and not attractive. Commodes did not flush properly, sheets and towels were worn and old, the king size bed was not made properly upon arrival (hem of top sheet was on the side). The outdoor gas grill was not usable since it was rusted out, broken and hazardous. For the amount of rent paid for this house, a few fixes in the house would be beneficial and reviews would be more positive. When a guest feels the need to buy sheets for a bed during the stay, it's time to refresh the linens.
My first impression of the house was a good one. The outside of the home and it's landscaping was well maintained. The lock box was hard to open and it wasn't easy to open the door. The keys probably need to be filed some. You also have to shut the front door hard to make sure it shuts. Everything was clean and fresh smelling upon entering.
The MASTER BEDROOM has a king size bed that was firm and comfortable to sleep in. The pillows should be replaced as they were stained yellow. The sheets appeared a little on the old side. The master bath had a shower/tub. The other bathroom had only a shower so that's what we used. The other two bedroom looked nice.
There's a ping pong table in the house for your use. We did not. Can't tell you much about the pool since we were unable to use it due to the lousy weather we had during our stay. But it is cleaned once a week.
Our only problem we had was trying to cook in the kitchen. Due to the bad weather we had to cook inside more than usual. Dishes, flatware, and glasses were not a problem. but we felt it was lacking a lot in the pot & pan department and also cooking utensils. But we made due with what they had.
The location is great for any restaurant you may want. There are a lot of them in the area. We tried several of them and would go back.
