The place is very roomy, in a super quiet neighborhood, very close to the beach it and has a comfortable charm, style, etc. It was perfect for three high school friends that just wanted to hang out and enjoy each other's company.
It was described by her as exquisite...not so in reality. We relied upon other people's reviews, as you must. But I feel they were misleading. Saying property was immaculate is a stretch. I wish I could post pictures.
Front door locks were sticky and rather difficult to use. Wireless LAN was not working ever. Info said you could reset it, but there was no power on the porch to it or the sprinkler. Unlike other rooms where the wall switch has to be on for the outlets to work (no warning about this), there was no visible wall switch on the porch. Beautiful garden? Full of weeds/crabgrass and dead grass. Table @ L in picture not there. 6 garden & 6 deck chairs promised: 1 chaise and one 2 seater iron item was there but grimy from weather. No shade anywhere. Had that table been there, with an umbrella over it, would have been nice. Ancient kitchen range, dirty grout surrounding and dirty burners. No sponge or dishrags were noticed in the kitchen. Dirty grout in 2nd bath around shower soap dish and sink top and rusted drain stopper, toilet paper was mounted inside the sink base cabinet next to old pipes. Creepy to reach into. Thin, old comforter in 2nd bedroom. Stained towels in bathrooms. A tiny hotel bar of soap was provided, but no shampoo or conditioner toiletries so had to run out to store. Stained carpet in bedrooms and dirty around the edges. Sofa in living room is really a day bed and not very comfortable seating.
We enjoyed having the space compared to a hotel, ability to have coffee and a little breakfast, the view of the water was lovely and the flat screen tv worked fine, but it was like staying in my grandma's house that hadn't been updated for many eons and was not very well maintained. The living room area with hardwood floors and a decent tv were the best part of the house.
We have stayed in B&B's and used VRBO in Paris, but this experience has left us wondering if we should use Airbnb again. This was not cheap and we could have stayed in a nice hotel for less. It was a few blocks away from a wedding reception we were attending, so the location seemed perfect. But our whole experience and then rereading other people's reviews left us wondering, how could we have had such different experiences? Old would be one thing, but dirty grout, black mildew, stained carpets...not our idea of an exquisite property.
As we arrived, we were quite impressed with the neighborhood and the well maintained homes in the area. As for the home itself, we had viewed the many pictures that were made available to us after our reservation was accepted. We had hoped that they would accurately reflect the property.
Unlike some previous experiences, in person the property was even more attractive than the pictures. This was a very pleasant surprise. The property was immaculate, with all the amenities we had hoped for and even more. We felt like true "guests" in the home, sharing the use of so many of the item items that were the personal property of the owner. The bicycles were an amenity that was important to us, and all 4 bicycles were in very good shape, and we used them every day. Though we had brought personal computers and iPads, it was amazing that a "house" computer was available for our use.
The binder in the home was very comprehensive, and described everything necessary regarding the home itself and the surrounding area.
The main entry door had been broken the week before we checked in, and a temporary lock had been put in place, certainly adequate. The contractor and management personnel worked with us to replace that door at our convenience. This was important, since we did not want to be tied to the house at a time of their convenience instead of ours. Another nice touch!
All in all, this property far exceed our expectations.
Ute's beautiful Florida beach house was lovely ! The house itself, located in quaint and quiet Indian Rocks Beach, was extremely clean and comfortable. It's huge windows provided wonderful sunrise views over the bay from the screen porch each morning. The surrounding neighborhood has some of the most charming bungalows, and there are many delicious and reasonably priced restaurants within a mile or less. The private dock off the back of the house was amazing at dusk. I would absolutely recommend this listing to anyone on any occasion. Big thank you to Ute for sharing your space with us!
Nice house on the water, 2 min drive to the Indian Rock Beach. We had a great time.
Ein wunderbarer Platz als Ausgangspunkt für zahlreiche Ausflüge aber vor allem um einfach zu entspannen und die Natur zu genießen. Ein traumhafter Ausblick, Delfine, Seekühe, Seeadler und viele andere Tiere direkt vor der Haustür, ein Platz wie im Paradies. Dazu ein gemütliches Haus, in dem wir uns gleich wie zuhause gefühlt haben. Es war ein schöner Urlaub in entspannter sehr privater Atmosphäre. Wir kommen gerne wieder.
