Take a step back in time to old Florida as you drive up to the home tucked away at the end of the short packed dirt road covered with live oak trees and beautiful palms. Serenity Now is peaceful and serene and only a short walk to a beautiful private beach deeded to the homeowners in the neighborhood. A wonderful place to get away from it all and recharge your batteries. You can enjoy as much peace or fun as you wish to make of it - it's all available for your pleasure...
We arrived at the Summerplace home with comments from our group such as, "Awesome!", and "Have you seen the kitchen?". We are a particular and peculiar group of friends and this home met the needs of every person on our excursion. This property is quiet and located in a beautiful live oak covered lot with plenty old Florida charm. Do not mistake the Old Florida Charm with old and run down. This home is quite the opposite!
There is less than a five minute walk to the private beach- that we had mostly to ourselves. The property owner was kind and helpful and available to assist those of us who are less technologically inclined than the rest.
The property is very clean and has more than we could have asked for. The gourmet kitchen was fully equipped with every gadget a cook would use... I brought a microplane zester with me to help execute a key lime pie, there was already one on site(as well as an electric juicer)!
Unfortunately, we were struck with bad weather and the only thing this High Tech Home could not do was change the weather for us....However, there were plenty of movies to watch on the home theater. Oh yeah, and cook and eat some more. Luckily there is a gym on site for the motivated.
Once we arrived there was no reason or desire for any of us to leave the property. When our trip was over we did not want to leave. This home is certainly on our list to visit again.
At the time of my final payment on the rental was due, I was blocked from making it online to VRBO and directed back to the owner. After a couple of e-mails and phone calls, the owner finally got back to me. Over the phone I gave him my credit card information for the payment. The charge hit my account 3 days later from owners "business" account not VRBO/Home Away but it took 3 months for the Owner to credit my VRBO account. During that time since my VRBO account showed that I was in arrears, I was blocked from being able to access important check-in details and I became concerned that I was the victim of a scam. It took repeated e-mails from me and a complaint to VRBO to get the Owner to post the credit to my account. At that point I thought everything would be ok.
At the agreed upon check-in day/time we arrived at the house only to find the previous tenants still occupying it. A 6 hour delay in gaining access to the house ensued. This forced the relocation of a planned family dinner at an added expense to me. When we finally settled into the house, although clean, it was obvious that repairs were not being made. Leaky faucets, random broken lighting in the house and absence of lighting on deck, front stairs and driveway, peeling paint, broken door locks, much of the decking planks warped and popped up, and damaged outdoor furniture were immediately evident. Unkempt landscaping, a pile of old wood, and a rickety For Sale sign out front contributed to the house appearing to be abandoned. It is definitely no longer in the condition that is depicted in the photos on the website.
I have repeatedly requested payment for the lost rental time and extra expenses that I incurred, but have gotten no response.
Don't let the outside scare you away. The inside of this house is very nice! Mostly updated with many upgrades and a wonderful kitchen. Our only critique would be the outdoor lighting and the 2nd floor shower. We couldn't find anywhere to turn on proper lighting outside so we had to use our flashlights to see at night. The shower on the second floor is difficult to turn off and we struggled to get hot water. Outside of that, it was a fantastic house and a perfect place for our family to stay while attending a local wedding. Walking distance to the beach was a major plus! What a great alternative to a hotel...If ever in Vero Beach area again, we would definitely stay here!!
Stayed in this perfect house back in the Spring. Still don't have my deposit back! No arguments that I'm not owned the money. In fact we bought more towels and left them for the next renters. Owner keeps promising that the check is in the mail. BEWARE! I won't use VRBO again, either.
The house was amazing. There were seven of us. Two couples and two singles. We all had rooms to ourselves. The amenities the house has is wonderful. The beach is within walking distance, which is a plus.
We sat outside on the patio at night and you could just hear the waves, it was so relaxing.
We would love to stay here again.
Our family started a tradition of getting together every Memorial Day weekend several years ago when we were living all over the state of Florida. We spent three nights of quality family time this year at this unique Summerplace, Vero Beach property. Our desire is to be "at home" away from our own homes. The large common area served our purposes very well. The kitchen is remarkable, although much of it went unused for our stay. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. The showers are interesting, although somewhat disappointing due to low water pressure during our stay. The walk to the private beach takes 4 minutes and requires crossing Highway A1A. We had a great time and hope that the property will be maintained well into the future.
