Nice house we had a great time

How clean it was and the view.
Rachel T. Mar 2022
My family of 4 loved staying at this home! The house was clean and bigger than pictures depicted. The pool was wonderful and my kids played and played! We had grandparents come down for a short stay with us and they had a nice retreat in the lower level which was nice and private. The boat space was adequate for the length described. Plenty of outdoor living space which makes the property feel even larger! We have rented many homes in the past and this was a delight.

My feedback would be the house was not well stocked, at all. There was only one trash bag, one paper towel roll, a few detergent tabs, and salt and pepper. We ended up spending more than we anticipated on routine household supplies in order to get through the week. The cooking pots / pans were adequate and we didn't need anything additional. They did provide beach towels which was appreciated but there were not any pool accessories / toys. I did message Vacasa while we were there to see if any storage closets had additional supplies - and this was all that was stocked, period.
Manager response:
Rachel, thank you for the review of your stay at Sombrero Beach Retreat. We are so glad you and your family enjoyed the home , the pool and were able to have grandparents join in the vacation with you! We only furnish a starter package of items such as paper towels, toilet paper and trash bags. We also have soaps such as dish soap and bath soap included. When the starters are used the guest is expected to supply their own. We look forward to hosting you again. Thank you!

Perfect location! Very clean....Only cons were didn’t supply paper products i.e. paper towels, garbage bags or dish cleaning supplies.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Kevin! We are very sorry that there wasn't a starter kit of cleaning products and toiletries for your stay. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused during your time with us.

This house was the perfect place for us. We had my 19 year old daughter and our 12-year-old son. The layout was perfect for us. The girls got the entire downstairs floor which was great for them.There was enough room for everyone to have their own space. The pool was amazing. It had sun through mid afternoon and the rest of the day it was in the shade. There is a large amount of outdoor living space which was great. I would definitely stay there again.

The house is large with a separate kitchen upstairs and downstairs. There are two large outdoor seating areas which are both tiled, and can get very slippery when wet. The house is very close to Sombrero Beach and activities in Marathon.

What was incredibly disappointing was arriving to 5 garbage cans filled with trash, flies, and maggots. After a long drive, we had to move all of the cans to the curb. There is trash pickup 2 times a week, so clearly, Vacasa is not managing guests putting out the trash. This was a less than desirable way to start our vacation.

Also, the house is on a canal so the smell from the seagrass was very strong. Obviously, this is not something that can be controlled, but there will be a very strong smell outside during "seagrass season".
Manager response:
Hi Jennifer! Thank you for submitting your feedback. We sincerely apologize for the issues you encountered with the garbage cans not being picked up during your stay. We are so sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you during your time with us. We will follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. We hope for another opportunity to host you again soon, for a much more enjoyable stay!

Great location. The house included everyting our family needed for a relaxing base from which to enjoy all of our activities - kayaking, snorkeling diving and day trip to Key West
Allyn Y. Apr 2021
Great views, decks and pool. House layout is great for 2 familles .
Kay L. Feb 2021
The space was roomy and well equipped for eight adults for our week's stay. Great location! We used the heated pool almost daily especially when the weather cooled down. We loved all of the outdoor living spaces. Plenty of space to gather as a group or have alone time.
Harriet B. Dec 2020
The house was immaculately clean and well equipped for our stay.
The view was absolutely beautiful and we spent most of our time in the house just watching the ocean.
Sombrero beach is just a few minutes walk and is stunning with incredible sunsets.
We were 2 families with 4 children/teens and we had plenty of space. The pool was well heated for the time of year. We had a lovely time and were sad to leave.
Jeff R. Jul 2020
Spacious and well equipped home. The dock was a big plus for our boat. Close to many dive and fishing spots. Ample parking, and home was clean. The pool is a nice postlude to being out on the water.

Close to the beach!
