“Good overall property let down by carpets”
Reviewed October 9, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

Carpets dirty throughout the property, owner emailed on day of departure to say previous guests had left family room carpet a mess, but it didnt appear to be just from previous guests, the stains were embedded. Under plant pot a huge bright orange stain. MAIN reason we left our previous rental property after a number of years was dirty carpets. Good selection of DVD's/games and baby equipment for guests use. Good sized property, close to parks about 20 minutes, nice location. Clubhouse on site has gym (basic but ok) pool table and a playarea for the kids, plus tennis court. Gated community.

“I expected more.”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Upon our arrival the entry gate did not work. In fact it didn't work at all until the day before we left. I liked the idea of it being a gated community, but if the gate is open all day it's not really gated. I called the Management company and left my number to return the call. The management company never called. When we entered the home we were impressed by how spacious it was. What I was not impressed by was the dirt around the handles of every kitchen cabinet. I understand the cabinets are white, but these should really be wiped down after the last guest leaves. The wall under the breakfast bar was covered in spilled food. Again, I would expect this to be wiped down before the next guest arrives. When we entered the upstairs master bedroom I noticed a few stains on the comforter. Upon further inspection some of these look to be bleach spots, but one was crusty. At a hotel I would have asked for maid service or another room. Here we were stuck. On Thursday my mom decided to stay at the home with my sisters baby. During the day the power went out three times. My mom had a crying baby, no power & then the alarm going off constantly because of the power going out. FYI the book says to enter the code, the alarm company informed us that the code must be entered twice in order for it to be effective. Poor Grandma was at her wits end. Then the pool cleaner showed up unannounced. Again being given warning as to the day & time would have been nice. On an up note after the power was finally restored the gates to the community started working. Overall it wasn't horrible, but I expected better. If I'm paying for cleaning after I leave I expect the home to be clean when I arrive especially considering after we take out the trash & strip the beds a lot of the cleaning is already done. The patio door is off the track which makes it difficult to close to set the alarm properly. This made going out to the pool a hassle. I would expect the basics to be supplied- like toilet paper and extra trash bags. They were not. There was an open, used bar of soap in the upstairs master bath shower which really had my stomach turning, but I cleaned the shower and pushed forward. The home next door had quite a few people staying in it when we arrived and cars parked all along the street and in the extra spot at this home. There doesn't seem to be anyone who patrols or monitors the property to make sure on home doesn't have six cars parked and loads of people staying in the home.

Management Response
10 Jul 2014
We had some discussions with our guest prior to the review being posted, and offered our thanks for the feedback. Of course, lightning knocking out the gates to the resort, and the alarms to the home isn't something a homeowner can influence, but we do try to be as responsive as possible,and previous guests have always commented on that in their Flipkey reviews. Our managers dealt with the situation as soon as we informed them, as is customary for them; they live close to the resort and can attend quickly if we need them to.

The items we could influence have all been rectified, and our managers did keep our guest informed of what was happening and any visits to deal with repairs they had been kind enough to notify to us. We were surprised at a couple of items, such as the lone bar of soap, but our managers have this in hand now, and we know this will be looked after. We have now refreshed the master bedroom to give it a new look which we are very satisfied with. Consumable items such as bin bags and toilet roll we do try to keep topped up, but occasionally these things do run out, but Publix is only a half mile away for any provisions the guests need during their stay.

Our guest would have appreciated some notice about the pool lady appearing for her weekly pool and chemical check of the water. We probably ought to let guests know when our pool lady arrives, as was mentioned in the review. We have the pool cleaned weekly to make sure it remains pristine, our pool girl is quite particular about making sure it is just right for our guests. So our directions and notes telling guests about the home are now updated to inform future guests, so we do appreciate the suggestion. This is our first mediocre review on Flipkey from all the guests we have had staying in the home, and it disturbs us that a guest has left dis-satisfied. We were on to the issues before the guest had left, and since, and if our guest decided to stay with us again, they are sure to have an excellent experience. If "more is expected", then we will do our utmost to provide more.....Thanks for the feedback and suggestions, and for being a caring guest in our home.

“An extremely well equipped and spacious property”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The house and pool were exceptionally well equipped. Every useful comfort had been considered, and for a family there was every piece of equipment you could possibly need.

The lounge had three large sofas, which gave our group plenty of seats, and the dining table seated 10 of us with the addition of a couple of outside chairs. Three bathrooms meant there was always a shower or bath free somewhere and the beds were large and comfortable

A lovely comfortable house and a joy to return to at the end of a long hot day
