Perfect for the six of us, easy to get anywhere.
Property was great
Great experience but could have used more items in the kitchen, definitely needed more wash clothes for the bathrooms and there was supposed to be a grill but no grill. Overall place was good.
Paradox: Comfy but impractical
This house was a bit of a paradox to my group. It was very comfortable: beds were great, room for everyone, enough bathrooms, great pool with the lanai, etc.
But when it came to the details this was a swing and a miss. The pool table is busted, not level, with not enough cues and zero chalk. Trying to cook breakfast was extremely frustrating - no knives to cut with, no salt or pepper. And there was only 1 trash bag for the entirety of our stay. ALSO - no dish soap or dishwasher tabs. Thankfully we ate out most meals, but trying to cook dinner would have been a nightmare, and that is one of the big draws of renting a house. Lighting was a bizarre mix of warm bulbs and cold daylight so it left the place feeling awkward.
With a few *minor* investments (knife block, matching bulbs, trash bags small dish soap and a few tabs of detergent) you could take this 2.5 star to an EASY 4.5 accommodation.
All in all it served our needs and we enjoyed it. We really enjoyed RusTeak and Sapporo Ramen, which were a close drive.
Thanks for your hospitality!
Zach, thank you for your review. Unfortunately, this home was hit by a hurricane earlier this year so several issues needed to be addressed. We're happy to report that everything has been repaired and resolved and there should not be any further problems. Best, the Evolve Team
The house served its purpose to provide a bed/housing for us but beyond beds the house was bare minimum. We were extremely disappointed that we immediately had to purchase plastic silverware. There were only 5 forks total. We bought plastic cups ... NO drinking glasses. There were 4 juice glasses. No mixing bowls. Not a can opener electric or hand. Not a pitcher in the kitchen. Really I could go in and on because there was NOTHING ... in the kitchen. Toaster had to be turned upside down to get toast out. Really it was so poorly stocked. The house has 5 bedrooms but furniture in livjng room only sat four people max. Really strange. I suppose if you ONLY slept there it would work. Also when we got there there were no towels or floor mats in any bathrooms except for the downstairs one .... found them in the dryer the next day when doing a load of laundry. We have stayed in many vrbo properties and this was the biggest challenge ..... I’d say it had beds but NOTHING else. Bare minimum.
Cheryl, thank you for your review. We've spoken to the homeowner who has confidently confirmed that all issues have been addressed and will not recur for future travelers. Thank you for helping us to improve and we hope to host you again in the future! Best, the Evolve Team
It is with regret that we have to write this comments.
Unfortunately the following items in the house were not available, broken, and impossible to be used. I was expecting a very different experience. We were not happy with this rental. Having experienced renting houses before, this is the first time we found ourselves writing an email complaint.
1. Upon arrival second floor AC was not working, we had a horrible night without AC
2. The BBQ was impossible to use! As it was DIRTY and UNSANITARY
3. second floor bathroom was not operational, all clogged! Disgusting!
4. The house was full of Caterpillars
5. The house is full of mold and this is dangerous! One of my family members respiratory system really got aggravated
6. And finally the house got fleas!
Catalina, thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear about the issues you faced during your stay. Unfortunately, this home was hit by a hurricane earlier this, causing several problems throughout the home. We're happy to report that everything has been repaired and resolved and there should not be any further issues. Best, the Evolve Team
Plenty of space but moldy sheets
The house size was great for privacy of all guests, but only 3 forks and 2 tiny knives, to use...really?? Had to use a grapefruit knife to cut up a honeydew melon! Not even a small starter pack of laundry or dishwashing detergent to use. Towels were stored in pantry of kitchen rather than bathrooms where they could be accessible. Extra sheets stored in top of downstairs bedroom closet actually had black mold along the creases where they were folded up. As if they were still wet when folded or had been dripped on as the ceiling in the closet above the sheets had water damage. All sheets in the house smelled moldy. My 15-year-old daughter actually got very sick during her stay and had to miss two days of school upon our return to California. I don’t know if that was because of the moldy linen or not. The house is in a great location and getting in and out was easy. The owners were flexible in meeting our individual needs when asked however, which was appreciated.. The mattresses in 2 bedrooms were very hard and one actually falls through frame when you sit on it and had to be propped up.
