What makes this House unique
Private setting with Private suites for provide independency for family members with water sports events at the door step.
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Very ample sleeping room.
Easy access to other parts of the lake.
Plenty of room in this house. Bedrooms are huge with extra rooms for the kids to play in. Small kitchen made it hard for more than one person to maneuver. Problem with the garbage being picked up. We had to pile it in the yard. We rented a boat and docked it right off the back yard. Very convenient. Overall a good place to stay. Just needs attention to a few details. Could be made excellent.
We had fun but!!!!!!
Property manager was unresponsive before and during our stay. Previous renters had filled the garbage can plus housekeeping had put 5 additional bags of garbage in the garage. By Sunday the 90 degree heat had brought out the stench and maggots. We rebagged and put outside. No garbage pickup all week, previous plus ours stacked up outside smelling up the neiborhood. My brother-in-law took some home on Tuesday, Instructions told us to wash, dry, and fold our bedding, never heard of such a thing in a rental before!!! Exterior lighting maintenance must be non-existent. Moldy shower. Broken toilet seat. Told not to use one room due to issues when it rains! Large tv did not work! Photo of property shows a vacant boat slip but was not available. Phone calls to the property manager went unanswered before our arrival aand during our stay!! Otherwise the house fitted our needs.
Let's go with the negative things first. Spiders, spiders, spiders. Inside and out. The exterior of the house, and the interior window sills, door jambs, baseboards, and under furniture. The house needs a thorough spraying for spiders. (Although, because of the spiders, we saw no other insects. ) We had no cable the week we were there. The internet was connected 4 days after we arrived and we were able to watch a Smart TV in the living room using our personal Netflix account. We noticed the property manager bringing in Roku units the day we left. The water softener does not appear to be working correctly. The tap water has an odor and a taste so we suggest using bottled water and bagged ice. Owner's clothing and personal effects were in the closets and some drawers. Would have preferred those items had been removed prior to our arrival. There are two toilets that share the tub/shower in the Jack and Jill bath on the second floor. So it is more like 2.5 baths instead of 3.5 baths. The house needs a bit of TLC to fix a leaking roof, broken gate and broken kitchen cabinet door along with a bit of painting to repair some previous drywall patching. We spent a few hours the first day cleaning the outdoor furniture and the back yard. On the plus side, the house is large. Plenty of towels and linens. Bedrooms are huge. Kitchen and laundry appliances are great. Kitchen is well stocked with plenty of dishes, utensils and cooking supplies. Parking is ample. Location on the channel is quiet. The neighbors are all very nice. The property manager was quick to respond to our issues.
Great location on the Manatee channel. Grandchildren swam in the channel up to the time we left. The place was very spacious. I would stay here again.
Visited this property in the past and was very pleased, not so much this time...
Overall the property was very satisfying.. Except for the visible dust that can be seen under the chairs in living room and dining room, cob webs thru out the house, cleaning personal definitely wasn't doing their job, then expects you to tip them at the in end of the stay....
Obviously the renter was looking for something to complain about after paying for eight people and.having 15 stay that didn't pay
