Quick summary: this is a top-notch property with many pluses. The booking was a little confusing in parts, but I would book here again without hesitation.
The house itself is wonderful -- well-maintained outfitted (e.g. very clean; high quality kitchen equipment, bed and bath linens, furnishings both inside and poolside; dinnerware.) Lots of extras to make your stay comfortable: pool toys, beach chairs, beach pass to the neighborhood beach (read: nearby parking!!) Nice, convenient neighborhood.
A local manager checks you in and out when you leave, which is very handy to show you around the house. She is also available for any issues.
There are two bedrooms, one with a king bed, the other with a queen - a third is kept locked for the owner's office and stuff. Two full bathrooms with double sinks and roomy showers.
The Wifi, HVAC, and pool worked quite well. Lots of TV channels.
Great location - near to beach, restaurants, shopping, west of Tamiami HWY.
My only caution is that the booking here is a bit more complicated than other properties we've booked on VRBO, but this should NOT discourage you -- just note the details. Some costs I expect, such as an extra fee to heat the pool. The owner also charges a per-day utility fee, some of which might be reimbursed if you are efficient (we were, and got some back. No issue - I sympathize with the owner about guests who might over-use AC and not be careful leaving windows open, etc.)
Others details: the "top line" listing says "sleeps four," but the base price is shown for two people -- additional people are additional daily charges. While this is indicated in the listing, avoid any confusion and reimbursement needs by contacting the owner and indicating when the "extra" people" will actually stay (my sisters were not there the entire time that my husband and I were, and we were reimbursed the difference.)
Also: the owner is based in Europe. Paying through VRBO will incur foreign currency transaction fees with his bank, even if your own credit card has no foreign transaction fees. (I wish I had known that - we have other ways of paying for things overseas.) The renter is also charged VAT, which should not happen with a US citizen renting a property in the USA. VRBO should take the lead to facilitate an accurate billing system in such cases.
One more thing: we bring tall beach chairs. Theirs are low sand chairs - seniors note!
So -- we'd be very happy to book again.
