From New York, dentist.
Nice guest and welcome anytime back!
The Marin Family
Yuri and Mat.were very friendly considerate guests .They left the room in excellent condition and cleaned up whenever they used the kitchen .They are very focused on their diving and fishing ventures and are very professional .They are most welcome back at any time .I highly recommend to any hosts .
It was very nice to meet Yuri. He took advantage of the outdoor lifestyle Florida has to offer, fishing and boating most days. He was very polite and quiet while here.
Yuri was notified days before arriving (twice in emails plus from the House Manual) that the regular check-in is at 3pm since the place needs to be cleaned after the previous guests. He acknowledged this . However, the day of his arrival, he phoned at 1pm and said, "I'm here.(URL HIDDEN) I told him the place wasn't ready but he could leave his things and come back at 3pm. He raised his voice, " I TOLD YOU I WOULD BE HERE AT ONE." I met him out front at which point he decided not to leave his things. He left and returned at 3:30pm.
Check-out was worse. He informed me he had to leave early and his friends would check-out with me at 11am. I came to the house at 11am to find the front door partially OPEN, UNLOCKED, and the keys inside. The key was visible and accessible to anybody that opened the front door.
It is unfortunate that Yuri did not find complete satisfaction. I am sorry he was unhappy because essentially, all of our reviews have been positive. What you see in the listing is what you get. At no point was I informed about the sink or the smell he referred to. He was there for three days. It could have been handled if brought to my attention. If the sink was ripped off and loose it wasn't the case when I checked him in. I cannot accommodate someone's needs if they are not made known to me.
During his stay nor upon check-out was I informed that someone had gotten tar stains on one set of sheets and a comforter. They will have to be replaced as the stains are permanent.
The house is a craftsman cottage from the beginning of the century and we're very proud of it.
