Best stay ever!
Staying in a beautiful upgraded house on the water is a treat! Everyone was comfortable and th owner responded very quickly to our every need! Will return next year!
Miami summer trip 2018
We had a great vacation experience staying there. The home lived up to all the amenities listed and more for our big family. The home is centrally located we flew into Ft Lauderdale and explored a different beach everyday plus South Beach ,Little Havana ,Bayside area. Wish we had more time to do more but we look forward to staying there again next year.
Pulling up to the house from the outside it looked small but once inside it was very spacious
It was perfect for me and my buddies we barely were at the house but when we were there it was everything we thought it would be
THIS IS A SCAM RENTAL! BE CAREFUL.
My husband and I rented this home for our General Manager and Office Manager of our company and for their family. We were mortified when they called us Saturday night and said that they couldn't stay there beyond that first night and that we should get our money back. The air conditioning wasn't working. The owner told our managers to give it a few hours and it should work. However, we own an AC company and our general manager knows that if it is barely blowing air and the air that is coming out is hot air, then it will NEVER randomly cool down. The AC was only a small issue though compared to the condition of the home. It was basically being renovated and the dishwasher wasn't hooked up, just pushed into it's spot. Two vanities in one of the bathrooms were not hooked up at all, simply staged in their future permanent place. Ceiling fans (which were a necessity due to lack of AC) weren't wired in & were hanging out of the ceiling with wires exposed. The owner knew that our managers were arriving at check in time (4:30) & had a 7 hour drive time from home to the rental. However, he didn't make them aware until about 2:!5 that it would not be ready by 4:30 for them to check in. They had 3 children with them & a dog. They had no where to go, etc. When they drove by the home to check it out, there were contractors on site with ladders etc doing repairs. Cleaning people were there as well; in total there were 7 people at the home when they arrived. My office manager made the statement that she was uncomfortable checking in & being there with strange people on site. The owner of this property, Sheldon, would later be the one to tell me (in writing) that those were her words....."strange people". Sheldon proceeded to tell me that he found that to be racist. I do not & will not play that game!!! "Strange" is not a race & my employee is not a racist!!! This tactic will not work on me as I will not be silenced because the term "racist" is thrown around completely out of the blue & without anything to back it up. The term "strange" was referring to them being unfamiliar to her & her children, thereby making them strangers. By Sheldon's standard, anyone parent or police officer who tells young children not to speak to strangers; they too would be racists to Sheldon! Give me a break! I resent the mud throwing as an attempt to deflect that this guy attempted to pass this "under construction" property off as a viable rental!!
Thank you for reading my response to this review. Please allow me to respond to several of the main points made. First please know that the Skylake Beach House has been a full time vacation rental on VRBO since 2009. We have lots of great reviews from each and every year. Yes, we have two poor reviews out of over 50 and I would be so happy if you gave me the chance to explain more in detail if you care to call me at 9143254383.
I was there personally and I did apologize several times upon their arrival, which I asked them to delay only one hour. One hour!!! They gave us only an extra 30 minutes and yes, me and the entire cleaning crew were still in the driveway packing out. The diverse cleaning crew must have looked dangerous to them because they refused to get out of their pick up truck when they saw the “Strange People”.
Anyway, yes a $40,000 kitchen renovation had been completed that week, leaving a dusty mess. Normally groups renting for thanksgiving want to use the kitchen so we were just gotten the house perfectly cleaned after the kitchen remodel. Please see the updated kitchen photos to confirm. You will see there are now two dishwashers. Not sure why one not working would be a problem since one was working perfectly. Also, yes there were two extra vanities in the huge master bathroom. We thought they looked cool but they didn’t like them so we moved them out. All original bathroom fixtures were all working normally but they didn’t mention that in the review.
Finally, yes the AC in the main area (we have two AC systems as well and the other was working perfectly) was not blowing cold. Turned out that the breaker outside at the compressor had tripped. It was reset within hours but by that time they had decided that they wanted a refund. So I gave them a full refund. Not that I would expect a guest to reset the AC breaker outside on the unit but they did say they were AC contractors.
I would be happy to show you the text exchange with them so you can see for yourself the true nature of the discussion.
Everything is in perfect working order now and I am on call 24/7 to address anything that breaks.
Thanks you for your time and consideration.
Rented house for a group of guys going fishing. very spacious and lots of room to spread out. Caught some fish out of boat ( bass ).
Kitchen furnishings were a little skimpy and had to improvise a few things since we were doing a lot of cooking.
