“Beautiful home....but beware of the security deposit”

Reviewed 22 May 2017

Let me start with saying the home and location were absolutely ideal... however just beware of the $750.00 security deposit and consider the part of your rental fee and don't count of getting it back. The owner kept $575.00 of my deposit for the following reasons. Read carefully since all the "claims" are normal maintenance. $95.00 for replacement of pool filter because too many people using pool and spa with sun screen on. There were 4 to 6 people at the house for most of the month I had the house with the exception of three days when there 8 people. There are no signs stating that suncreen is not allowed and no outdoor shower, I believe most use sunscreen and enter pools and pool filters need to be replaced periodically. $100 extra cleaning over and above the $150 cleaning fee that was in the contract. This house needed vacuuming, dusting and floors washed when I left. I consider that normal cleaning. The house was not trashed, all dishes wer done and put away so I'm not sure what "extra cleaning" was required. $120 additional carpet cleaning to remove stains. No proof was provided for these said "stains", with the exemption of one picture with a very small black speck., that I'm not sure we even did. I was charged "$30 for cleaning lanai cushion with grease stains", again I have no idea what stains, they are referring to, no evidence or pictures of the said stains were provided to me. While we were there one blinds fell out of the vertical blinds when we opened them. I I believe this was do to the age of the blinds, We were charged $50 for blind repair. All we did was open the blinds. We moved a coffee table within the same room and were charged $20 to move it back to the original location. I was charged $10 for two door stops. I believe one might have been broken during our stay but really what are door stops for? I have no idea where the other door stop was. In the contract the owners included 75.00 for heating the pool and spa, but then decided to deduct $100 from our deposit due to the high heating bill. I don't believe this is even legal since the contract did not include an electricity clause it was just flat $75. If the owner learned after the fact that they didn't charge enough I dont believe they can legally deduct from a security deposit. May I add while we were there a pool repair guy came and switched the values which cause the pool to heat to 91, I reported this right away, but I believe I'm paying for this error. May I add that when I got there one of the beds had dirty red sheets on the bed and there was very clear evidence of use of that bed, need I say anymore. Also in the same room there were hand prints on the mirror, on the back of door, let your imagination take that wherever it may go. The tub in the master bedroom was filthy. I had to clean it before I could use it. I feel I have paid for all normal maintenance items and what other renters may have caused since the owners were there last in September 2016. I also believe the cleaners were put out because I reported the lack of cleanliness of the home when we arrived. I know I will probably never get the reminder of my security deposit back but i just want others to be warned ahead of time. I have probably rented 20 homes across Canada and the US over the last 10 years and NEVER been accused of damages. In fact two of houses I have rented have been repeats and the owners wanted to rent to me again since I was considered a good tenant.

Owner's reply: We have pictures and witnesses to prove all of our claims. Owners, please be advised to not rent to these people.

“Best vacation EVER!”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2015

Enjoyed this property loved the location easy access and private. Was like going home everyday. The pool, hot tub, and lanai were awesome. Definitely rent again if we return to Ft Myers. Only downside we had was wish the direction on how they wanted things done when we departed were better and wish it had Internet. GREAT place would definetly recommend!

Owner's reply: Just wanted to say thank you so much for the great review, it's always nice to get those! I did want to ask you if you could be more specific regarding "how they wanted things done when we departed". If you could email your response to me it would help us to provide future renters with a better experience. Thank you, L. Volterri

“Family vacation 2015”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2015

This home looks and is decorated like a model home. It was perfect for our family of six. Had our own private pool plus a community pool .Also a hot tub which unfortunately wasn't hot. My family wished there would've been wifi. Very nice landscaping, private and secure area. Would rent this property again if my family could all get away again at the same time. Oh and one other thing-the floor in the master bath is very slippery.

Owner's reply: Thank you or your input. So glad you enjoyed your stay! In regards to the hot tub, the remote for the pool also regulates the hot tub. Hope you will return!

“Beautiful home”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2014

This is a beautiful totally furnished home in a gated community with just a short drive to the beach. My family and I stayed here for 10 days and have no complaints! The house has everything we needed just like we were at our own home. There s a pool and hot tub on the lanai and also a workout room and another large pool just 3 min by foot! We will def be back! Thank you!

“Wonderful vacation”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2014

We found the house very comfortable and in a nice location close to many attractions. The bedrooms are big and the neighborhood is very quiet with nice neighbors. We would love to visit again!
