Fantastiskt boende i välbärgat område

  • 5 of 5

Stort och jättefräscht hus med fin pool. Läget vid kanalen var mycket fint. Köket och utrustningen var perfekt. Mängder av sällskapsspel och pussel som vi kunde använda. Området var fantastiskt att promenera i på morgonen.

Nere vid kanalen fanns en brygga med bänkar där ett enormt träd skuggade och stal mycket av solen på eftermiddagen.

Otäta dörrar, framförallt i badrummet ut mot poolen gjorde att både ödlor och andra små insekter lätt tog sig in.

Bra och tydlig informationspärm i huset, det vi saknade var vilken dag trädgårdsmästaren och poolrengöraren skulle komma. De dök bara upp i trädgården när vi låg och solade.

AC i hallen bullrade mycket dygnet runt trots att vi stängde av den helt på off.

Jättenära till Sawgrass Mills och ännu närmare till Westfield Broward, om man vill shoppa.

Ett särskilt tack till ägaren för att vi fick stanna kvar länge i huset sista dagen pga sen flight hem.

Vi ville inte åka hem!

Wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

Location was perfect. Easy access to beach, dining, shopping. House is older but bathrooms and kitchen have been updated. Master bedroom is fine. Other two bedrooms have low mattress and smaller beds, would be better with twin size beds that could be put together or apart. House had a musty odor and we did need to sweep and vaccum. Kitchen pots and pans were greasy and had to be re washed. Suggest a new cleaning service. Grill was dirty and rusted had to be scrubbed out. Walkway to the house was black mildew in front of entrance and very slippery. Husband scrubbed that out. Small boat has motor that does not work even after charging battery. We considered all this minor and loved our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi, thanks for your valuable review. My apologies for the mediocre state you found the house in. I'm guessing the a/c was off accounting for the musty smell. The house had been empty for a few weeks before you arrived. I will instruct cleaning staff to leave it on when they leave, even in the "winter," and in the future, have the place cleaned closer to new arrivals rather than recent departures so dust doesn't accumulate. The grill is supposed to be cleaned on a regular basis by our gardener. He also is responsible for keeping that front area free of mildew as water tends to pool in that one spot when it rains. I will speak to him as well. I'm going to remove the boat from the ad. I think that's our 3rd motor along with our second charger. The elements just destroy them. Also, I would love to put twins in the second bedrooms, but they would have to be bunk beds. I might upgrade them to queens though even that will be tight. Once again, thanks for your feedback and happy you considered those issues minor and were pleased with everything else.

Pleasant house in a quiet and convenient neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

The house matches everything stated in the announcement.

It' s a very pleasant place, furnished with charming antique objects. I am sure that many of them have a history behind.

There' s plenty of space in rooms, and enough bathrooms for a big family.

Backyard has a good swimming pool and is open to a channel, what brings a feel of liberty and nature's touch.

Kitchen is fully equipped, beyond expectations, even for someone who enjoys cooking and has sophisticated needs.

Minor issues with appliances have been solved in reasonable time.

The place is off the main streets - so that you are free of noise - but in a good position to reach main ways in the area.

The owner answers messages quickly and is easy to deal.

After few days, we felt like it was our home.

Just perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We are golfers and the house is perfectly located a few minutes drive from the Jacaranda Golf Club ( 2 18 hole courses). We stayed at the house for 5 weeks. Our daughter and her 2 children joined us for the last week.

I cannot say enough about Carol and Mike - the owners - who went to huge trouble to make sure our stay was perfect. They have to be the most responsive and nicest owners of any VRBO house there is! No request was ignored and no request was too much trouble.

Since we were there so long we had the housekeeper, Anna, come in weekly to clean. She is a delightful person and it was nice to get to know her.

My only suggestion is that there be a listing in the house of all TV channels - the system was hard for us to negotiate and sadly the Golf Channel was not included in the package. We had Sky Go on our iPad but would have loved to watch the Golf Channel.

We would rent this house again in a flash were we ever to come back to the USA.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your valuable feedback. We truly loved having you as our guests. I wish I had known about the Golf Channel! It is in part a golf house (!), so I have updated the satellite package so that the Golf Channel is included. We will also make sure there is a listing of channels from Dish made available so it's not as confusing for future guests. Thanks again!

Perfect house and location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this great house. We come to golf so four guys fit well and the house is one minute from Jacaranda. Perfect.
