Very good value
Clean and comfortable villa in a great location. Restaurants, beach and shopping all within walking distance. Would recommend this villa.
We love our British and other international guests! So glad you enjoyed our amenities and walking distance to the Avenue and beaches. It was a pleasure hosting you and chatting about the world.
Fabolous family vacation
First of all - that was great vacation! Villa is superclean, and spacious, no problem for 4 adults. Pool area is kept very well, pool is so nice. Villa has great position, you can walk to the downtown (10 mins) or to the beach 15 (mins) if you want. Wallgreens behind the backyard, Publix 300 meters and Walmart 5 mins by car. Bill and Susan are great hosts. We had a little issue with wi-fi but Bill made everything to resolve it (and he resolved it). You have everything you need to live in Villa - just take a toothbrush. We were there for one month and we want definitely back. Best Villa we ever rented. Thank you Bill and Susan, hope to see you soon. Lukas & Family.
Glad we met your expectations given your trip from home in UK & Czech Rep! It was a pleasure to host your family and get to know you. Very happy our pool, grounds and Villa accommodations suited your family well and you enjoyed walking to everywhere. See you again it looks like!
Very clean, good location with a nice pool
When we first arrived we first noticed how everything was very clean. Then we noticed modern appliances and nice small outside patio with table 4 chairs and Weber gas grill - nice! Later we went to the pool. Nice small pool. Location was great! Easy to get to downtown or beach - just as advertised. We noticed a few lights out and a toaster that didn’t work right. So I contacted the owners who immediately came to fix the lights and provided a new toaster - impressive! Nice people and great place. Nothing more than I could have wanted - everyone loved it!
We are clean and maintenance fanatics as we stay in vacation homes as well! Thanks for the feedback and glad you enjoyed our amenities and location!
Nice and clean property, but some issues
We just returned from our stay at this villa in Delray Beach. Here are the pros and cons:
Very clean unit - one of the cleanest I've seen in our travels
Lots of bath towels
Good hot water system
Pretty pool area with lots of loungers and chair, and shaded area
Nice backyard with table, chairs and BBQ (in 2 bedroom villa)
Easy booking and quick replies by e-mail from owners
No dishwasher, washer or dryer
No heater in the pool - the water was quite cold
No blender - this is first time I have seen a Florida rental without one, so no margaritas or daiquiris
No plastic cups to take drinks to the pool area - which means you need to bring glass outside
Not enough hangers - 8 plastic hangers per bedroom (there is a huge bedroom closet, but too few hangers to make good use of it)
Non-opaque blinds in the master bedroom - the sun streams into the bedroom in the morning, which woke me up early each day. When you lower the blind in the master bedroom, you can still see the trees in the backyard and the patio furniture perfectly - that is how see-through it is. Oddly, there are much better blinds in the kitchen and family room than in the master bedroom.
Loud noise from passing trains - This is not something that is unique to this villa. A railroad track runs through Delray Beach and a rail crossing is not far from this home. The trains come through at all times of the day and night (e.g., at 11:00 pm, 3 am) and honk their horns very loudly at all railway crossings.
Thanks for the feedback and glad the Pro's made your stay worthwhile. Disappointing 1st 4/5 given (37) 5/5. The other item's we discussed prior to booking, the Site description and all emails were clear on what we do/don't provide for the rate you definitely loved over all others. The w/d is not for very short stays as you already knew.
We advised no blenders (safety issue) before booking. The unusual winter cold snap/rain affected pool- we try to schedule sun daily! On sunny late mornings, you were disturbed- go figure! Trains are a nuisance & an all DR issue with lawsuits vs. the State.
The two bedroom unit was spacious with a full size kitchen, generous living room, and eating space for four. There was a private patio with barbecue. The unit was newly and tastefully decorated. Pool for sunbathing/relaxing is shared by 4 units. Definitely a cut above any other rental we have had. It could use a bit more lighting for reading and a ceiling light in the master bedroom.
Thanks for the review and feedback. Wish you had told us the 3 times we spoke. We did add more lighting The fan light was removed due to other guests saying too bright! Great to see you folks enjoy the unit but you missed most of the outside sunshine!
