stay away from this one!!!!

  • 2 of 5
A great location and potential to be a wonderful property, but sadly a renter must deal with owners belongings boxed up and stored in rooms, sticky notes all around the property that says "do not touch and do not use", outdated and cheap furniture and furnishings, and broken items throughout the house (tiles, light switches). The advertised "cottage" attached to the property was invested with bugs and without a working air conditioner. Our 10 year old daughter called it "disgusting" as the furniture is literally 30 years old college throwaway type of stuff. We gladly shelled out the thousands of dollars for the week only to find a dirty house on arrival (hair in the showers, food crumbs in the kitchen), towels with holes, and a non-working air conditioner while the owners enjoyed a Caribbean cruise (ie no where to be found to correct any of the above issues). In the end, the owner charged for broken items that were broken upon arrival and was upset we used his personal towels and lawn equipment to clean up his property. Guess he forgot to say thanks for the couple of hours we spent cleaning up the yard and the new towels bought him. Highly recommend anyone looking at this property find another one as the experience was less than enjoyable dealing with the property that's not taken care of (pictures are outdated btw) and an arrogant/entitled owner. And the 400 dollars in "extras" he kept from the security deposit was the icing on the cake. Bottom line: pass on this one!

Owner's Response: We would like to thank the Renter for their feedback. We have added an Inspection report of the property prior to any Renters arrival, to ensure that everything has been properly prepared.
- It is disheartening to contact Renters the day after their arrival and be in contact several days later, and being told that they are “having a wonderful time”, and then hear about complaints after the fact, as part of an attempt to obtain a rent reduction. Had the Renter informed us immediately that the Cottage A/C unit had stopped working we would have had a repairman out straight away. The first time we have heard about a “bug problem” is upon reading the Renter’s review. Had the Renter informed us of a problem, the pest control company who treats and maintains the property would have come right out.
-Unfortunately, the Renters statement that we retained $400 in “extras” is simply untrue. They were informed and the rental contract clearly specifies that the charge for electrical usage and the standard cleaning fee would be deducted from the Security Deposit. However, we did retain $138.66 for damages (wrong gas used in the new blower that is not for tenant use); add’l cleaning; cleanup of a trash mess; as well as the cost of groceries which we purchased for the Renters at their request.
-Similarly, the comments about broken items and cheap furniture is also untrue. For example, while we have 4 large flat screen HDTV’s, we do also have 3 older technology T.V.’s, which most Renters appreciate as most of the rooms in the house have a TV. We have very expensive leather furniture, a Billiards Table, several pillow top Stearns & Foster beds with very high quality bedding. There are no ”broken switches and tiles”!
-This property is our primary residence when it is not rented out, so it is a “home” with all the benefits of excess of furniture, kitchen cookware etc. In preparation for a Renter arriving, we pack up our MBR, emptying out a dresser, night tables, medicine cabinets etc. and stack all of those personal items in one closet with a note on the door asking Renters to not enter, while leaving a 2nd closet empty for the Renters use. This reviewer has stated to us that unless we lock the door “nosy rude people” will enter .…and indeed this renter and his family entered our closet, went thru our personal possessions, and removed some of them for their own use.
-The pictures will be updated as the front deck was replaced and some furniture has been upgraded.

Amazing getaway paradise

  • 5 of 5
I just got home from spending a week here with my Dad. This is indeed an amazing place. There are spectacular views from many of the rooms in the home, a gorgeous pool with waterfall, small private enclosed beach, dock, hammock, shade and sun -- everything. It's quiet and secluded in a residential area with places to walk. When you want some noise and nightlife, great food, or historic attractions then Key West isn't all that far away! The photos don't lie!
