Good location for the 'Adventure Coast', everything supplied for a family stay.

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at this house. The location is perfect for us as it's just ten minutes from family who live in Brooksville. We also like the location as it's so close to the 'Adventure Coast', with plenty of stuff to do up and down the 19 freeway. We have two young children, and they loved visiting the nearby beaches, Sun West Park, Boyett's Grove, Weeki Wachi Springs, Honeymoon Island, local cinemas and shops, and using the pool every day. We will definitely be back again! The only reason this is four stars instead of five is simply because the house is a little dated, and there were occasional issues with things needing repairs during our stay: the bedroom blinds fell down when our 5 year old tries to close them, the microwave blew a fuse, and one of the toilets had an issue with the flush which needed tending to. We also saw numerous cockroaches during our time there, but simply gathered them up in a glass and threw them out into the garden. This is a great option for a fully equipped family holiday house.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house and location for what we needed! We were visiting family in Homosassa and this rental was close to everything. Close to shopping, Weeki Wachee, Homosassa Nature Experiences, restaurants and not too far from all the tourist stuff like Clearwater, Johns Pass and St. Petersburg. The house was neat and clean and very well stocked with all necessities. The pool and screened in porch are just fabulous! I would rent here again and again when visiting this area. Thanks Brian!

Greatest vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! We actually liked being away from all the busy stuff! Loved having our own pool and the house was clean and perfect! I would recommend anyone to stay here! We actually made the hr drive daily to honeymoon island. Didn't seem like that long of a drive with sight seeing on the way! I hope we can make it back to this house! Definitely a vacation to put in the books!

Owner's Response: Many thanks Megan for your kind review. Our house is located in a quiet area which we love also. You can completely relax and spend time locally at smaller attractions or drive for an hour or so to the theme parks in Tampa/Orlando . Best of both worlds ! The free Wi-Fi in our house also makes sure you can work online or use your phone/tablet just like home to keep in touch with everyone. We used the house just after you and have changed a few things outside and in - new pool furniture, new beddings, linnens etc and the pool is due to be re-surfaced. So hopefully if you are back with us you will see some changes.

Fun in the sun..

  • 4 of 5

The house was great, we all enjoyed the pool daily. The neighbors where very friendly, there was all kinds of wildlife the older gentleman next door pointed out to us , from peacocks squirrels and others . The cleaning lady lives next door and dropped in , which seemed a little unusual, and she seemed a little out there but overall a great time.

Owner's Response: Thanks Bob for your review. We're pleased you enjoyed your stay , our old gentleman neighbour is very friendly and has many a story to tell. We have just been at the house ourselves for our vacation and learned of his time in WW2 when he served in the Canadian Navy. Our housekeeper treats the house like it was her own and she does go out of her way to check that our guests are settled and everything is ok.

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

Want to thank Brian for the awesome accommodations on our stay in his lovely Home. We enjoyed the Pool every night and the beaches all day. Pine Island which is a few miles away from the Heather is very beautiful and fun. Every thing is close by, we felt at home.

What my wife and I experienced from 10/1/15 to 10/21/15:

"Villa" is not located in a "gated" community. There is no secured entrance to the Heather community.

"Villa" located adjacent to dusty dirt road.

Worn carpet with multiple stains.

Circuit breaker in off position for hot water heater resulting in an extended period of cold water.

Large amount of lint found in lint trap of clothes dryer.

Killed six cockroaches in the first two days, Probably due to previous occupants not washing greasy skillet.

Bath/shower fixtures missing in master bathroom.

Faucet valves leaked water in master bathroom.

Coffee maker and toaster quit working.

Could only use swimming pool the three times it was cleaned due to large drowned centipedes at bottom of pool.

Odors from peafowl next door.

Villa located approximately 7 miles from main shopping area.

Owner's Response: Mr Willis, We can only apologise for any issues you may have encountered during your stay with us. We aim to provide our guests with a standard of property that we ourselves would expect. We cannot foresee any electrical appliances breaking while guests are in the property and we understand our housekeeper did replace the items for you. We think the breaker must have tripped due to one of the appliance failures. Our property is treated 4 times a year inside and out with bug spray so we can be pretty sure there are no reasons to believe there is a problem with roaches etc within the property. There will always be insects around the garden due to the close proximity to woodland so an odd insect may get in if garage or external doors are open. Our Villa is accessed via the "Heathers" golfing community main gateway. You are correct that it does not have a barrier gate but has a manned kiosk at the entrance. Google maps can be used to confirm this. Google maps will also confirm that our villa is located barely 10 yards off the roadway so I'm surprised this was used as a negative feedback. The pool is professionally cleaned weekly by our contracted maintenance agreement but between times an odd insect does does get into the screened pool area. Again due to the villa being located adjacent to a woodland this has to be expected that an odd bug will get into the pool area, possibly under the door to the garden on the pool screen. We were at the villa ourselves this July and had an odd bug but used the pool skimmer pole to easily remove. The pool water is chemically treated and filtered and agin checked weekly by the pool maintenance company. Our neighbour has Peacocks as pets and we have spoken to him regarding them venturing onto our property on an odd occasion. We agree this is not ideal for us but we have no other way to control this other than having made our feelings known to the neighbour. There is no issue with any of the faucets in the bathrooms, one of the faceplates that covers the overflow has a damaged fixing and we cannot find the replacement to renew this. The showers and taps work perfectly. Our property has been rented for years and this is the first poor review we have had, so I can only reiterate that appliance faults during rentals can't be foreseen and any issues our guests have when at the property are always dealt with swiftly by our housekeeper. Valid reasons for complaint will always receive our full attention. Regards, Brian
