Our vacation at Claddagh House

April 23, 2016

We had a wonderful and relaxing vacation at Claddagh House. It is a beautiful home. Very comfortable and had everything we needed. The heated pool was great to relax by. Both the pool and grounds were nicely maintained. The neighborhood was very nice and quiet. There even was a family of Sandhill cranes that walked the neighborhood. In regards to the owner, "wonderful". Couldn't have asked for anyone better. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay and enjoy your lovely home. We were sad to leave. We would of liked to have be able to stay again. Unfortunately the house was sold.

Claddagh Home

January 4, 2016

My family and I stayed at the Claddagh Home during the Christmas holiday. It is a beautiful home. It was well equipped even including beach towels were used at the swimming pool. My daughters (16 and 6) loved this home and even made comments that is was the best placed we had ever stayed. We did have a small issue with tiny ants but I emailed the owner and she was quick to send out pest control. There were a few things that needed attention but nothing that took away from our stay. The owner was prompt in responding to my concerns which had more to do with thoughts that service providers might be taking advantage of her since she was no longer close to the property. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels and other basic supplies. Overall, we really enjoyed this beautiful home and would love to be able to stay there again. I would recommend this location for any Sarasota stay.

Great Location

January 7, 2014

The location of the rental could not have been better. 1 block to the beach and 1 block to all of the shops in St. Armands. However, the unit seemed dirty and dingy. It needed a good scrubbing.

Family vacation

May 27, 2013

We rented this property based on the five star ratings on your site, the location, and private pool as we were having our children and grandchildren down for a special family vacation. On a positive note, the house was comfortable and well suited to families with young children. The neighborhood was lovely and safe and the little ones had a great time enjoying long walks, swimming in the heated pool and we were close to many fun activities. However, for the adults, the home was far from 5 star quality. The owners live in Ireland, and while very nice and easily reachable via email and phone, there is no "property manager"in the area to monitor the property. And there were many issues. Pros: Lovely living room with TV and comfortable furniture and hardwood floor. Comfy table and chairs poolside. Heated pool. crib, stroller, and play toys for the little ones. Baby monitor, secure lockable door to pool area. Cons: Broken lanai screens, broken umbrella (the owner had us buy a new one and we were reimbursed), broken plastic lounge chair, dirty and rusted out grill, several broken pool tiles which made the pool edge sharp to touch, stained comforters and old stained pillows without pillow protectors, mismatched towels, many stains on carpet and some furniture, dirty stained throw rugs, loose toilet seats, bathroom fans not working, side on port-crib broken, upstairs TV's not working (these were fixed the day after grandkids arrived), old, damaged pots and pans, dirty kitchen drawers and cupboards, and an old stove. Additionally, there was no light source above either dining table. My husband had to clean the vacuum and filter before he could use it. The worst part was that we had adult guests arrive the same day we did and after they left I went to change the linens and found the stained comforter and pillows on their bed. It was very embarrassing to say the least. When a property is rated 5 star, we expect it to be very clean, have high end amenities and linens, and have everything in working order. This is where the Claddagh Home fell short. While we had a great vacation, I hope future ratings will be more accurate.

Palmer Ranch

March 20, 2012

This home on Palmer Ranch in Sarasota is in a great location for all the Sarasota attractions. Close to shopping. We travelled to Long Boat Key, St. Armand's Circle, Venice, and Siesta Key. Very nice pool at the home. Other than a few minor issues this would be rated a five star.

Owner's reply:

Thank you Cheryl for your review of the Claddagh home. I appreciate your feedback and be sure that I have now taken care of the minor issues you raised with me around the housekeeping and storage. I would be delighted to welcome you back to the Claddagh home again should you decide to travel to Sarasota in the future.
