Location is the only thing this property has going for it.
The pool was not usable for the first two days. And even after it was vacuumed it was disgusting. The air conditioning was not cooling the main living area very well. We checked the filter and it was so clogged up so bad it looked like it hadn't been changed in a year. There was a box of filters next to the unit so we replaced it. There was a roof leak in the main bedroom. The landscaping is out of control and a bit overgrown. You cannot sit on the deck and see the beach. There is about a four foot drop off the deck but there is no railing. And it is not four bedrooms. It is two bedrooms with a huge loft. The side of the loft with the bath room has a double bed and the other side has a twin day bed with a pull out underneath. There is no privacy in the loft. The location and secluded feel of this home is amazing, but the property is very run down and not well kept.
We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy our Beach House. The Beach House like many properties on the Key, is a more natural landscape with native plants indigenous to our Key. We have a landscaper come each Saturday morning to maintain the property. Our air-conditioner is under a service contract and is serviced every 6 months. Looking back at our invoices, the last maintenance was June 29, 2019. Under services provided, changing the filer was listed. We have a pool company come each week to maintain the pool. Should you find something that is not what it should be or not to your liking, our caretaker is available at all times to handle whatever your concerns might be. Each guest has our caretaker’s phone number. We are sorry you didn’t find everything to your liking, we make every effort to make your stay enjoyable. Susie and Mike
Family Vacation July 2019
We were very excited to try a new area on vacation this year and we were even more excited when we arrived. The views of the gulf, access to the beach, pool which was our girls favorite, were only a few of the highlights of our vacation. Terry was great to speak with and recommended some very good restaurants for us to try. If you are a shark tooth hunter you picked the perfect house as on the beach by the house our girls found plenty.
Thank You So Much for the Great Memories our family was able to make while vacationing at your beach house. If we can make our schedule work, we plan to return later this year.
Thank You From Our Family,
Mike, Tanya, Madison, Alexandra and Arabella
We are so happy to hear your family enjoyed the Beach House and all it has to offer ....and went home with great memories! You are welcome back anytime!
Susie and Mike
Great place very quiet, very relaxing.
Had a great time found tons of sharks teeth. Place was awesome!
So glad to hear you had a great time and found lots of sharks teeth! We love to hear that, vacations are such an important time for families! Thank you for choosing the Beach House! Susie and Mike
Best vacation EVER!!!!
From the moment we pulled back the long, private, tree covered, shell driveway we knew we were in for a private vacation. We walked in the house and pulled the curtains back to the most amazing view I have ever experienced at the ocean. There was lots of room in the house and it was very welcoming. We couldnt get enough of the ocean. Between looking for shark teeth, playing in the waves, the pool, looking at new turtle nest each day and napping in the lounge chairs our days were full of fun. The ocean was breathtakingly beautiful. We can not wait to come back. The house had everything we needed. We brought food and our clothes and we were set. Thank you for sharing your home.
You are so welcome! We love for our guests to feel as if they have just walked into their own home on the beach! We look forward to having you return to the Beach House. Susie and Mike
The house location is awesome you feel like you are on your own estate on the beach. Beach access is fairly easy and all there is all basic amenities. The problem is that the place is extremely dated, and by dated I mean the important stuff like bedding, dirty pillows, and extremely old mattress. The place is for sale and it feels like the owners are dedicated to putting zero investment back into the rental to keep it up to date or even change out dirty pillows and old mattress. Little to no beach amenities and the internet is useless (only works intermittently). Also, because they are selling this property we were constantly being bugged by a aggressive realtor to show the house while we were staying at the property. At the rates these owners charge for their rental its extremely tacky and unfortunate that they expect their renters to also be their real estate agent having prospective buyers invade our time.
It's our goal to make our guests as comfortable and satisfied as possible. We only wish they would have let our caretaker know they were not happy with the pillows and mattresses. We would have had new delivered. Linens, bedding and pillows are replaced on a constant basis. We have Comcast high-speed wireless internet at the house, which is the best service on the Key. We do have beach chairs and beach towels for use at the house. While these guests were at the house there was one showing.The realtor called 24 hrs. ahead to scheduled the showing, which only lasted 20 minutes. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused. We do try to go the "extra mile" to make our guests comfortable. We know how important vacation time is and always strive to make it a wonderful experience for our guests.
Beautiful Location - Not a 4 Bedroom Home; 2 Beds with Loft
This is a lovely location, private, close to the ocean, beautiful views and a nice pool with hot tub. However, this is a not a 4 bedroom home. This is a 2 bedroom with a huge loft. This is a great property for 2 families with children - parents in the bedrooms, kids in the loft. The problem was we had 5 adults and 2 kids. So, my husband and I had to sleep in the loft with our 4 and 6 year old. Not what we wanted. Even 3 bedrooms with a loft would have been fine. The loft is divided in 2 halves with a twin with trundle on one side and a full size bed on the other. I will say, the loft is not noisy. The wood paneling absorbs quite a bit of sound. It was lack of privacy and the expectation of there being 4 proper bedrooms. Otherwise, a very nice property.
We are so sorry the rental didn't fully meet the expectations of our guest. We always send a detailed description regarding the layout of the home and sleeping accommodations. After sending the description to the family, we received a reply stating it will work perfectly for us. We are happy to hear they liked the location, the property, and the pool and hot tub. We always strive to meet the needs of our guests.
Manasota Key is known for fossilized sharks teeth and you will find lots of them on the beach!
Fishing is also a favorite past time here! There are also many good restaurants nearby!
