Spectacular Home, Cant wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

I must admit I was a bit concerned while looking for a house to rent for my family vacation. Will it be as nice as the pictures show? Are there bugs? Is it clean? Will there actually be a house there when I show up? These were only some of the concerns I had, which can not be validated until you step foot inside the home. I personally don't mind a mess, as I have small children, but I don't like filth and cannot stand bugs or bad smells. I became even more concerned when I looked again at the website and found the horrible review above. I had already booked and paid and it was too late to find another.

I am now happy to say that review is absolutely inaccurate and most of the pictures do not do this house justice! The place was beautiful inside and out! This is not just a house, it is a home! A very inviting home at that. My family of 15 aging between 7 and 61yrs fit very comfortably. In fact we could have easily housed more if needed. This is not a brand new home but it has been updated. The rooms are spacious along with plenty of room in the bathrooms, esp the second floor bathroom. The small loft that may not be suitable for elderly, in my opinion was fine for just about anyone else as the stairway was more of attic type stairs not a ladder as I previously thought. There was not a bug one to be seen, which I would assume there would be in that area. The house was very clean including the fridge/freezer, dishes in cabinets, bathrooms, even down to the ceiling fans which could be seen while standing on the balconies. All appliances worked great and the stove did not have to be lit by a match as stated in previous review. (Although if it did, I wouldn't find that scary) The beds were comfortable and clean, no bad smells or anything to cause concern. I did not see anything falling apart in this home nor did we get interrupted by any visitors, service people or phone calls. Air conditioners worked great and there are portable fans in the house for those that may be hot natured. The pool appeared dirty in the pics online however, I found out it is just the color of the actual pool. The water was clean, pool size and depth were perfect including the hot tube. If the kids weren't in the pool they were fishing off the dock or in one of the Kayaks. I can't say enough about this property and can't wait to return. If you want to go on vacation and still feel the privacy and comfort of your very own home, this is the place.

Thank you for sharing your home!

Owner's Response: Glad to say this is not a real review, as you see they are anonymous and supposedly stayed last year and wrote a review a year later? Also not sure where all my other reviews are..... . Regardless, I am also on Vacationhomerentals that has reviews and more photos. Thank you, DeeDee

Nearest Airport : Tampa International at 25 Miles Car: recommended

We are only 10 miles North of Clearwater Beach in a Gulf front

town called Crystal Beach. The vacation home is located in one of the

oldest little towns in Florida and truly what old Florida was like

and will easily and comfortably accommodate 2-3 families.

Watch the million dollar sunsets while relaxing in the Gulf-front

heated pool, (in the Spring and Winter of course). Catch trophy Red

Fish, Snook, or Speckled Trout from you own dock, where dolphins

swim by.

We have a karaoke machine, and games, and plenty of outdoor living

space.

Nearby Attractions: We are located in between Clearwater beach and

Tarpon Springs (famous Authentic Greek Community) an area of Multi

million dollar homes, very

Centrally Located, we are a very unspoiled community with its own

little pier, park, Nondenominational Church by the Sea, close to

golf courses, more beaches and all the attractions like parasailing,

jet skiing, swimming with manatees, etc. There are plenty of gourmet

and family dining and FUN restaurants and lots and lots of

shopping!!

Fun places for night life in famous Ybor City. You can ride bikes on

the Pinellas Trail over to Honeymoon Island, Dunedin, or Tarpon with

all the its Greek Culture

and also to Caladesi Island, and Clearwater Beach,

are within bike riding distance, which are two of the Nation’s top

five beaches. Walking distance to the Pinellas Trail - or you can

use our bikes! Not to mention Disney, Bush Gardens, Sea World,

Universal and MGM Studios within one hour 50 minutes.

During the latter part of the summer, end of July and August, sea

grass sheds in the Gulf of Mexico and if there is no rain or storms,

it will accumulate on the shore. But there are local beaches that

service the beaches and remove it from the shores.

This retreat is great for families with children who love to play

and explore the shore

for fiddler crabs, horseshoe crabs, sea horse, all kinds of sea

life. . This vacation retreat is located in a Gulf front town

with some homes on the Gulf that have their own private shore access

which makes it perfect for the parents to be either in the kitchen

or at the pool sipping a cocktail and you don't even had to leave

your chair while the kids are running around playing tag, roasting

marshmellows, having a bon fire right on the Gulf while the sun is

having a spectacular sunset.

Notes:

  • Tropical executive vacation home with own private pool/hot tub right on the Gulf of Mexico with beautiful Due West sunsets. Own dock to fish for trout, Red Fish, flounder, or just catching pin fish is always fun for the kids. We have a couple bikes that can be used to go on the trail or over to the larger beaches. We have a bonfire pit, and also tiki torches near the pool area. We do not supply the fluid for the torches, we do supply a small stack of wood for the bonfire, if more is needed we do have available for a small fee.
