Do it yourself...

  • 2 of 5

Spent first night cleaning dirty bathrooms. Filthy shower doors; black hair everywhere (we are all blonde); pee on and under toilet seats; socks turned brown after walking on tile floors. I literally gagged cleaning it up. Trash left half full under counter from prior guests. Texted owner with pics of it as soon as I arrived. He informed me that it was too late to do anything about it and nobody else ever complained before. Unbelievable!

After paying a ridiculously high cleaning fee, we had to clean it ourselves - and buy the cleaning supplies too. Mop on site was non functional, so we had to mop by hand too.

The house is right next to a bar with live bands and very loud music on weekends, so not as private or quiet as expected. Airboats roar by frequently all day. Perhaps if you're a Disney tourist, this is all very fascinating but we are natives. Owner, or someone, lives in property just steps away, with a drive that adjoins on one side. We were awoken at 8 am (after being up til 4 cleaning) by two guys - one in a bathrobe - in the front yard yelling about the hose and setting up - and turning on - the lawn sprinkler. Well water smelled like rotten eggs in all rooms pretty strong for first two days. Nothing like what we expected for the price.

House itself was really pretty and spacious though. The kitchen and large porch are to die for. Owner was responsive at first, but seemed offended that I would dare to complain, even though I sent him pics and he knew we had just arrived at 9 pm, especially since several keypads must be accessed and can be tracked. He seemed to be suggesting I was inventing problems or something. Very upset about paying such an outrageous cleaning fee when it's obvious his cleaning crew is taking some MAJOR shortcuts.

Owner's Response: In the age of electronic media we all must be accountable. The hosts, the vendors and even our guests. With this being said, we also have to be practical. So in this short response, we ask our potential vacationers to read our customers review carefully. To be bullied into refund for a cleaning fee after so many concessions were given is not only a cowardly act but a clear and obvious trend of social decay in our time. It is our goal and culture to build relationships not fee structures. With this prefaced, on to our response. We are so glad that you loved our home, the back deck, which was to die for; and the spacious kitchen. We absolutely take pride in our home and want to give the best expierences and memories to all that we are lucky to have. As you said, you arrived late which was around 10pm. Our normal check in time is around 4pm and if available we let folks arrive early if the home is not occupied. At 10pm the cleaning personnel that we have contracted for quite some time could not come out that late. They would have immediately the next morning. We have alerted the staff not to leave anything in the garbage cans, even the two pieces of paper that you sent us a picture of. We were not aware you went to the store and will gladly reimburse you for any supplies. :-). After complaining about the maids: and the cleaning fee, and the two pieces of paper in the garbage can, and the noise, and the landscapers, and the smell, it appears the daily discounts we gave you and your family on food and drinks which was more then the cleaning fee our vendor charges us, wasn't enough. Again, we take pride in our home and will do everything in our power to help you and your family experience the best memories. We are not a hotel; we are better. Our home sits on the lake and boaters do go by. Music does play from time to time, sometimes by a live band. You can hear people laughing and dancing at our lazy gator restaurant if you listen carefully. Birds, alligators and wildlife wander around in the backyard uncensored and untamed. You can cook full meals in our spacious kitchen and save hundreds on restaurant costs on your vacation. Most importantly, you can live like a local and enjoy the sun on our huge back porch which is, "to die for." Please come back and see us soon.

Well appointed, clean and cozy. Absolutely breathtaking setting. Amazing find. Would easily sleep a few more people as we only had four in our party.

Clean and away from the crowds.

  • 5 of 5

Great value. Was able to bring boat and fish in lake Jesup. Would recommend gator tail to anyone with family or someone just wanting to getaway. Very quiet and secluded.

Beautiful House- great experience

  • 5 of 5

Joel was very easy to work with and everything went smoothly. The house was very nice and clean and had a lot of space for parking. I rented the house for 2 weeks for a couple of employees as we had some work in the area. There are lots of restaurants, stores etc within about 15 minutes. They also have a restaurant and airboat rides right next store to the home.

I would definitely rent it again.
