NOT what I expected
This place is MUCH smaller than you think it is. The owners also added new items in the rooms which made the rooms feel even smaller although i'm sure that was not the purpose. The lock was awful. It stuck several times and was inadequate as the combination was so easy, a child could have guessed. This place was very hot at night time but there was only 1 window. The window in the bathroom did not open. The guest has no control over the temperature in the room. I received an email before i checked in stating that they could be reached at any time but when i emailed back, she took several days to answer. There were many towels but they ALL smelled DISGUSTING!!! The sheets also smelled bad; like mold. It is pretty clear that there has been water damage to the floor as the laminate flooring was all lifted on the sides. I could hear the other tenant, (i'm assuming another family member) talking loudly with their phone on speaker, yelling back and forth to each other at 1130 at night, slamming doors at 130 am, and opening and closing the garage door at 6 am (I'd like to sleep in on vacation). The "apartment" was VERY FAR from anything. 45 minutes to Sanibel Island, 40 minutes to Ft. Myers beach, and 45 minutes to the airport. The "beach" they stated was close by is a yacht club beach which the locals referred to as "gross". There are many places to eat within 10 minutes but they are all dives. The pool was not heated in the back yard but the outdoor furniture was very nice. There is NO sun in the back yard due to the house and the trees sitting so high. I was hoping to spend a day or two at the apartment to sun bathe but that was not a possibility. If it weren't for the fact that the owners lived right next door, and there was no 3rd party person to talk to, i would have called on day 1 to complain and leave. I did not feel comfortable complaining about this place when all of my luggage was in there while i was out trying to enjoy Florida as they had complete access to the apartment. I spent good money to be there for less than a week and it was too late to find any place at the last minute to stay instead that wasn't insanely expensive. I was VERY disappointed and would not recommend this place to anyone.
Would not stay there again
Felt the picture mislead us on the property, had to complain to get the ac working, was woken up a number of times in the morning by people in the house , very thin door between the two .
Lovely stay. Sonia, our contact person, was awesome, as was her father. Friendly & helpful.
The apartment is quite small, but very well kept and clean. The property, including pool, was lovely and most of my time was spent enjoying the outdoors. It was a pleasant experience overall.
Pretty good but needs a few things
Sonia the owner of the property was EXTREMELY accommodating. She went above and beyond to help us. I believe our family of 4 were her 1st guests. The apartment is attached to her home. It was very quite though. There are a few things me and my wife would recommend to make the experience much better.
1. The pool needs to be heated, this was a big draw to why we booked this place. We were disappointed that the pool was so cold.
2. The refrigerator definitely needs to be full size. if you are staying for more than 3-4 days you can't fit all the cold stuff in the smaller fridge.
3. it really needs a separate thermostat or a window air conditioner. Again she was very accomedating if you asked for the air to be turned up or down she would do it.
4. The toilet really needs help. It doesn't flush hardly at all. The float just needs to be adjusted for it to work properly.
The advantages to this property publix the grocery is very close. The beach is very close by. A gas station is close. CVS is very close. Lots of restaurants nearby. There are a lot of PRO's.
Me and my wife are not picky people at all. I read reviews where people complain about everything. The owner of this property truly tries hard just a few things that would have improved our stay. I would not hesistate to stay again if the stuff I mentioned above was addressed.
