Pay attention, owner withhelds refundable damage deposit without damages !

  • 1 of 5

Very disappointed about owners behaviour, trying to withhold damage deposit without any

damages, giving reasons as laundry and towels were not washed by us, water left in a tea pot, a stinking bucket was left on the balcony. No explanations were given about using aircon, no landline phone in the unit - we had to use our german mobiles for even only local phone calls,

ironing plate was not put back into a cupboard where bedding linnens were stored together with

cleaning equipment like a hoover- indeed not very hygienical. NOT ANY DAMAGE REPORT from owner, only silly comments. We paid for departure cleaning and in spite of that, we should have washed

used towels and linnens ourselves upon departure !? This is cheeky indeed.

The pool was not usable, as it was not heated. Poor and old kitchen utensils only, so we had to buy some ourselves to be able to prepare meals for just 2 persons .

We will contact American Expresss about the shortfall on contractual refund and inform LBK`s chamber of commerce about this. This is unacceptable and will have consequences.

Owner's Response: The renter somehow charged pay per view movies to my unit in the amount of $60. A new AC system was installed couple days before renters arrival and when spoke to him informed him to call as I could control remotely. Remote monitoring showed they had AC and Heat on when needed. Often setting thermostate to 86 when outside temp was 70. Some reason they closed all the vents probably impacted air distribution. Yes unit has no local phone. All cords that were configured to light switches were pulled out, all table decorations and small wall decorations were moved or put in drawers. Laundry required to be done was not, dirty dishes were left in bedroom. Items for inside were moved to outside Lanai area. When outside temperatures are 60 degrees or less the pool heater has no value, so the condo association turns it off, pretty standard is not a Jacuzzi. Claim knifes not sufficient, have 19 cooking knives including a hand sharpner. There are enough kitchen utensils to cook a thanksgiving material. Our can openner was missing, had to through away a coffee pot ($25) that appeared to be left on heat virtually empties, had dried coffee. The tea kettle was place back into cabinet with water in it. After initial communcation on WIFI, they never responded to my text messages. Over 3 man hours moving items back to original place. Incurred extra cleanning expenses due to not following policy on laundry and leaving items every where. We would not rent to this party again.

Top Notch!!

We wanted to find the perfect waterfront, relaxing, peaceful place, where we didn't have to drive to the bay or gulf. We found it! In the mornings we watched the glorious sunrise from the lanai, and in the evenings we walked over to the gulf side to watch the sunset. One morning when we were sitting on the dock of the bay, a manatee slowly passed by, sticking his nose out of the water every few minutes. We also saw dolphins in the bay and gulf. There's a nice Publix right down the road and plenty of good restaurants right on Longboat Key. Our favorite places to eat were Dry Dock Grill, where we sat outside on the bay and watched the boats; the Lazy Lobster, which is a short walk from the condo. We walked across the road to the gulf with our leftovers and fed the seagulls, while we watched the sunset; Tide Tables, which is very casual. We sat at a picnic table on a dock and ate the best fish tacos...the condo is clean and comfortable. The pillow top mattress on the king-size bed gave me a week of great sleep. It would be our delight to stay here again.

Beautiful property and GREAT location!

  • 5 of 5

Having never stayed on Longboat Key, and always wanting to, I am so glad that we finally had the opportunity to do so. This condo has gorgeous views and is right across the street from the beach! Very comfortable dock for viewing, visiting or fishing too! Really well maintained unit with everything we could have wanted in an accommodation: 3D TV with DVR, super comfy bed and great shower heads!! I highly recommend it!
