Wondeful family stay!
Our family (3 generations, ranging in age from 4 years old to 73!) had an absolutely wonderful time here. The house is spacious, clean, and even better than the pictures online (take note of the stairs though- my mom did ok, but someone with mobility issues might have a problem) . We had everything we needed there (chairs, towels, beach toys, etc) , and more! Colleen was extremely responsive and helpful with our questions. The kids were in the pool almost every day and had a blast, the pool was clean and we had no problems at all. We loved being so close to the beach and it was especially a great beach for kids. Can not say enough about what a great time we had...we hope to return soon!
3 and 1/2 couples from KC take on Indian Rocks Beach
The property was exactly as was advertised! We had plenty of room. The kitchen was perfect for having meals together and even inviting friends over! We had everything we needed and when a problem arose, Colleen had it taken care of! The guys enjoyed the plunge pool and having a barbecue grill. The only thing we would change would be the 3 days of colder weather; Colleen couldn't have helped us with that!
Perfect for family reunion , but chemical burns from pool
I wish I could write an excellent review, this house has a perfect location for our family reunion of 5 adults and 4 children. Very spacious and well equipped.
Unfortunately the pool caused chemical based burns to all of our children. They were crying in pain, had trouble wearing certain clothing, sleeping and had to avoid the pool and bathing during the entire trip, with the exception of our very last day.
We were told that the pool was cleaned and serviced the day before and during our stay. Upon informing Colleen of the problem, she sent her pool service provider to the house right away. He confirmed that the chlorine level was high and the pH was 10. The pH should have been at 7.4-7.6 so this was definitely the cause of our children’s pain. Colleen questioned whether the problem was our turning the pool temperature to 90 degrees or the sunscreen we use. The pool service man asked us to stay out of the pool for the day and part of the next morning. We could not use it as we were afraid of further burns and the children’s skin couldn’t even bear the shower or bath. We did use it for a few hours on our last day, but had to stay out for the majority of the trip to heal. Kids were so disappointed.
Despite this awful problem, Colleen did not offer any reimbursement to our group.
I’m glad you enjoyed the house and we are terribly sorry about the pool chlorine level being off. This has honestly never happened to us in the 5 years we have owned this house and used this pool company (our homeowners association has used them for all the houses in the gated community for years and years.). I was very surprised that this happened. I’m even more surprised by this review that you wrote here, for a number of reasons:
1. I spoke to my pool man and he explained to me the allowable chlorine level is 10ppm and our pool was maybe a 6 or 7.
2. You arrived on Saturday, January 25 (with an early check in at noon per your request). You never called or texted me anything about the pool until Tuesday January 28. And when you did text me you never made it seem it was as bad as you wrote in the review. You just asked if the chlorine levels could be adjusted. If it was that bad, why did you wait 3 days to text me about it?
3. When you did text me, the pool man was there in less than an hour and dechlorinated the pool immediately and then came back the next morning to check it again. I asked the pool man how the children were doing when he was at the house and his exact response via text said, “they were talkative and happy.”
4. The bottom line is you felt the need to make the review sound like this was so much more of a problem than you did to me and that’s what’s upsetting to me! If you would have called me the very first day, we would’ve had this resolved and everything would have been fixed in a timely manner as it was when you texted me three days after you had this issue with the pool. I’m very, very sorry that the children had this reaction, but it was no way my fault. I did everything that could have possibly been done to resolve it immediately.
Easy walk to beach
This is a nice large house that is a minutes walk down the courtyard to the beach. Our family enjoyed our stay very much and Colleen was fast to respond to my question.
50th Anniversary Beach Trip
My brother and I decided to surprise our parents for their 50th wedding anniversary with a trip to Florida. We rented this house sight unseen and we were blown away. Spacious, clean and just steps from the beach, you won’t regret your decision to stay here. Colleen (the owner) was super friendly, accommodating and just really great to work with. We will be back again most definitely!! Thank you Colleen ❤️
Amazing family vacation
We were so fortunate to rent this beautiful house and spend some quality time with family and friends! Colleen was super she replied right away if we needed anything but we are very low maintenance there were a few small things but nothing that affected our time in the home and at the beach.
The location and size of the home exceeded our expectations. There was plenty of space for us to spread out and enjoy our time. The access to the beach is simply about 50 steps away and there were beach chairs, umbrellas, tent, towels, toys - pretty much anything we needed! The interior of the home was clean and set up well, we would have liked a few more outdoor chairs when hanging on the patio but no big deal. Beds were amazing we all slept like babies!!!
We were so lucky to have a manatee swim right up to us and we saw dolphins jumping daily!
Make sure when visiting you go to Crabby Bills, MadBeach Brewery and Proino for breakfast!
