I loved the fact that the place is spacious and can accommodate a large family with room to spare. The rooms were fairly cleaned. However, the carpet appeared old and soiled.

My main complaint is there were roaches sighted in drawers and in cabinets on day one of our arrival. Additionally, a rodent somehow managed to get into the ceiling space. It was evident by the noise we heard.
We did contact the house manager who stated they would take care of the pest problem.
Manager response:
Hi, John! We always appreciate hearing from our guests so we know where to improve. We have contacted pest control and will be addressing our other concerns. Thank you!

The home was amazing, it was clean and updated. It come with all the stuff we need for our stay like the kitchen Essential n grill. The view was amazing very closed to the beach and to the community pool, we will definitely stay there again.

Great location, nice and spacious.

My family absolutely loved this house...great location, 100 yards from the beach, very open, plenty of room, great patio on the lake.
I would have easily rated this 5 stars with the exception of a few items. There were only 4 outside chairs for the patio and one was broken. There are two large tables outside with really only 3 workable chairs...the upstairs shower in the queen room will not drain the water. There is literally only one small frying pan in the kitchen, which makes cooking breakfast almost impossible for 10 people.
All these are minor and very fixable...overall it's a great house and could be perfect if a few of these items could be addressed.
Manager response:
Hi, Tom! The broken patio chair has been replaced, and we will take care of the shower drain and perform inventory to replace any missing items. Thank you for staying with us!

The house is very nice and the view is beautiful. The bedrooms were large and fit our two families well. However, on our second night there the air conditioning went out and it was over 85 degrees on the main floor. We ended up having to sleep on the third floor in the same room as our kids (this was suppose to be a vacation). We messaged immediately and kept getting the same reply that they would contact someone right away and would be over to fix it. This went on for 5 days with no contact or repair. Also the kitchen sink kept flooding underneath when you tried to use it. Turning on the dishwasher also caused the sink to flood out underneath. It was such a mess and miserable to be inside the home. The slider door also would not latch well and left us feeling unsafe. I wish I could give this home a better review but it was miserable. We did get compensated $200 but that hardly covers one night of renting the home.
Manager response:
Thank you for choosing to book with us! We are glad you enjoyed the home. We sincerely apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay and we are sorry for any frustrations these may have caused. Since your visit, the air conditioning has been repaired, the garbage disposal and sink have been serviced, and the sliding door has been repaired so future guests will not encounter these issues. We hope you were able to have an otherwise enjoyable stay and we hope to have the chance to impress you in the future!

Beautiful place, we can call it home. The best part? The beach and location. Quite and clean.

I’ll give you an honest review. The house could accommodate a nice large group. There was plenty of room and nicely laid out. The location is an easy short walk to the beach and the beach buggy they had for you to haul stuff down was awesome. I wish we would of known we were not allowed to have beach umbrellas or tents at the beach because we would of left them at home. The private beach was awesome and not crowded because of it being private. Now the downside of the house is when we arrived it wasn’t clean it was pretty bad thinking we were the first ones to have used it in months. Cobwebs, roaches, everything was really really bad. The other thing that was bad was the AC. It was so hot in the house until someone came the last day to fix. I’ve seen other reviews claiming the same thing. When it’s 79-80 at night that’s hard to sleep in.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jon! We are so sorry you arrived to an unclean home and wish you had called so we could have corrected it for you right away. We always take cleaning seriously, but especially during this pandemic. The air conditioner is working well at this time. We hope to see you again!
