It needs a few updates but the owner Miss Sharon was so kind and helpful she explained all that to us prior to arrival. we had everything we needed for the most amazing time. I would recommend it to anyone. Brenda Myers/Texas

We stayed at this house in March. We take our grandsons fishing every year and wanted a nice place with a nice pool for them. This house was nothing like the pictures portrayed. The carpet was filthy, there was mold in the bathrooms and the outside furniture was completely faded and worn out. After all that, the owner didn't even return our deposit after telling us she had actually mailed it 2 different times. We left the house cleaner than we found it. I wouldn't recommend this house or owner to anyone for future stays! I wouldn't even give it 1 star, but I couldn't place the review without rating it.

We should have realized from the first exchange that this would not work out well. The owner did not have PayPal set up and wanted a bank draft sent from our bank to hers, which has a $35.00 fee attached to it, and her bank charged us an additional fee to cash the cheque.. We sent two cheques, a deposit and then the full amount plus a damage deposit which we were to get back as long as there was no damage and we didn't use excessive heat with the pool, which we did not. We actually took a picture/ reading of the gas at the beginning and end of our stay as proof. The house was not like the pictures. Obviously the pictures were at least 8-10 years ago because the carpets were completely stained, the cushions on the pool equipment were ripped and torn and should have been replaced years ago. The neighbor a few doors down acted as house manager/maintenance person and it honestly felt like our use of the pool and the heater was being monitored daily. Our kids are 13 and over so we were not using the pool much during the day as we would be out but we would use it into the late evening. The house was large but had not been well maintained. The pool was also large and very nice, the kids enjoyed it alot. We did not want to fill this out until we got our damage deposit back but it has now been two and a half months and we have heard a million excuses, currently, it is in the mail, but it has been several weeks and we still haven't received it. There was no damage done to the property by us and we have been led to believe that we will be receiving the deposit back in full. I should include our email exchanges so you can hear all the crazy reasons as to why the return of the damage/security deposit has been delayed. If you want this information I would be happy to forward these emails to you. I did not want to write this review until we got our money back but it looks doubtful that that will happen. We believe that this woman just plans to keep using excuses until we get tired of asking for the damage deposit back and just give up. Please take this house off your web site, you do not want to be associated with an operation like this. We have dealt with this web site twice. In 2012, I wrote a glowing report of the house that we had rented in Florida. This year's experience ws the exact opposite. Not sure if we will use your website again after this experience. I really feel like we have been scammed by this owner.

This lady and her caretaker run a scam business. This house was listed as 5 star yet when we arrived the carpets were badly stained, the house was full of dust, the walls were black, the patio door leading to the pool had a damaged track which made it very hard to open and close the door. The pool cover outside had no crank and was filthy. Half the pool lights did not work, the plug for the outdoor lights didn't work. We traveled with my sister and her family who also rented a house in Crescent Lakes and they would come over for dinner and swimming. Upon my arrival home I received an emailed from the owner stating she would not be refunding my security deposit because I used to much hydro and she stated I had more people staying at the home than I stated on the contract. My sister sent her copies of her rental home receipt to prove this was false and the owner then tried to say she was keeping the deposit because we did not clean the BBQ. I told her that we paid for the BBQ rental and included in that was the BBQ cleaning and were not given any cleaning tools for the BBQ. She then sent an email back saying we left garbage in the house so she would keep the large deposit for this. I would like to say that there was garbage left in the house BUT the garbage was in the garbage cans inside the garage. It was not garbage pick up day so I don't understand what she expected us to do with it? She then sent another email saying we broke the outside plug (LIE) AND we got sunscreen on a couch pillow. I was willing to pay for the cleaning of the small arm pillow because it was very possible one of my children did this but I was not aware of it. She stated that the house cleaner washed the pillow and it did come clean, but she wanted the full price to replace the pillow. She sent me a hand written bill for the hydro but refused to send me a copy of the ACTUAL bill to prove she was charged what she stated. She would send email after email claiming different things as to why she was keeping the deposit. I think she does this because she knows her home is not in 5 star condition and she tries to "get you" before "you get her". I would also like to say she states she has a management company looking after her home (LIE) its a neighbor who tries to sell you Disney tickets. She also told me that if I leave bad reviews she would black list my name with other renters. I did some investigating and found out that her home inspections have failed in the past, not surprising!
