traveler reviews for this marathon house rental

Yes, it's too good to be true!

Review submitted: August 14, 2014   Date of arrival: July 5, 2014

1st, ask yourself why there are no reviews since 2011?? Then wave your big red flag and look for another place! We still have the emails of correspondence with the owner to show the poor communication. Some of our issues were…… broken bed in one of the bedrooms, lights didn't work on back porch and it was pitch black at night so no outside sitting by the dock or pool. Both of these things were brought to her attention the first few days of our stay and were not fixed for us.(we have the email she sent back if you'd like to see it) (she said it was probably a breaker and will look at it when we leave…..the breaker is locked up so we couldn't check it ourselves) Grill grates were so rusty that we couldn't use the grill.(we have a pic of it) We were told a week after we got back that she was taking $150 out of our account to fix a piece of trim we pulled down with our boat trailer AND because the figures in the signed contract weren't figured right. The repair was a few screws to put the trim back up. ($25 on the highest end!) So she refigured the contract with different figures (which we still didn't get a copy of) and took the $150. At this point we cut our losses, told her to keep it and choose not to even correspond with her anymore about it. She answers emails with 1 liners and doesn't fully explain anything. We stay in Key Colony Beach every year and wanted to try a place that had a closer pool for my sick wife to get to easier. I'd rather carry her on my back to the pool at KCB than to put her thru the kind of service we got here. We have NEVER left a negative review before in all the years we have been to the keys but felt the public should know the truth because what they did is WRONG. I don't know if the owners can delete these reviews which makes you wonder why there are no reviews since 2011. Run away now……

Owners response: We have guests that are pleased with this property and return every year. Happy guests don't always take the time to write an online review They put their comments in the house guest book. It is an unhappy guest that will want to post a review. This guest had a deduction from his security deposit to cover damage to the carport. He was very happy until that happened....

This guest tore out a 10' section of the carport roof trim pulling his boat trailer out of the carport. His trailer guides were too tall. The interior ceiling is marred from the guides but I only charged him to reinstall the trim. A neighbor notified me that he damaged the carport, the guest did not. I notified the guest by email with pictures and he did admit to the damage.

The guest did notify me on the second day that the porch fan lights were out but said it didn't need to be addressed. On the third day the guest emailed to say they had no problems with the bed the first two nights, but on the third day there seemed to be a problem with the box spring. They wanted to let me know so they would not be blamed for it. Again, they said that it did not need to be addressed. I respect our guests wishes for privacy. The guest never mentioned any problem with the grill. The grills are replaced every two years.

Owners risk receiving a bad review when a security deposit is charged. Unfortunately, the damaged item must be repaired and the guest charged accordingly.

A little paradise on earth

Review submitted: April 12, 2011   Date of arrival: February 26, 2011

We really enjoyed our stay, the pool is just fantastic, fishing from the deck so funny. It is a very quiet area, we just felt like at home . Cindy is a very nice and reliable owner. Everything is clear, there is no bad surprise concerning the amenities, the dishwater may seem a bit tired , that's all. But the most important : the house was clean when we arrived and ,when we left we met a charming housemaid.

There's not wifi system, nevertheless one can get a connection freely with a laptop from the library close to the house. Easy !!!
We are looking forward to coming back next year ...
