Pictures don't do it justice
This house is probably the cleanest home we have ever rented. The pictures don't do it justice. It's quite large and very comfortable. Highly recommend.
Wonderful property. Quiet area. Owners are readily available if needed. Prefect place.
Perfect, absolutely perfect
I was looking for a location that would entice my grands to step away from their electronics and this little place did it!
Truly a lovely home, tastefully decorated, comfy furniture and beds. Plenty of room, inside and out. A step or two out back is a tropical oasis with a huge picnic area, relaxing chairs, lounge chairs and a pool. So very pleasant! Pool toys for the little ones, beach towels for poolside.
Bed and bath linens were excellent quality!
Well stocked kitchen for meal prep and a nice screened in back porch for the afternoon Florida monsoons!
Wi fi worked beautifully. We did have an AC glitch but owners responded promptly to get it resolved/repaired.
We all fell in love with Rudy, the neighborhood cat. She loves to talk and we really looked forward to her visits!
Bartow was new to us, and it’s downtown (just a few blocks) is quaint and charming. There was a Friday evening downtown street gathering with a band, cake walk, vendors, crafts, etc. Even the teenagers loved it!
Our hosts were available when we needed them but not at all intrusive.
Groceries and Walmart within minutes.
Can’t say enough good things. Can’t wait to visit again!
The owner is very welcoming and understanding. The home was very clean. Beds comfortable and all amenities were excellent. Recommend.
House is great but zero communication during our stay!
The house is absolutely perfect and was a great place to stay during my co-worker's and my work trip to Bartow. The only problem we had is that we had ZERO communication with the homeowner during our stay, including instructions for check in and Wi-Fi username/password. We got lucky and found a key in the mailbox (also the front door and side doors were wide open, which could have been a problem had someone broken in before we arrived and trashed the place) and were able to get in, but we were unable to use the Wi-Fi the entire week and there was no welcome letter or anything else indicating this information in the house. The morning of our check in, I called, texted, messaged through the VRBO site, and even called VRBO customer service. Despite these measures, we did not hear from the homeowner the entire 5 days we were there and still have not. VRBO customer service told us that we should receive a welcome email at 4 PM (check in time), but this email did not include any relevant information and the app I downloaded specifically for this stay did not include any check in information either. In conclusion, we got lucky and had a great stay (minus the Wi-Fi), but if anything had gone wrong, it could have been a much different story.
We apologize for any miscommunication. We live next door to this property and are available 24/7. Our WIFI does not need a password and is always available and there is a secured version also and the sign in information is on the desk.
I had talked to the guest when they made these reservations originally 3 separate dates but cancelled two of them. I was traveling in Canada and had no cell reception. My wife was home the entire time.
Again please accept our apology for any inconvenience this caused you.

No one vacations in Polk County?
I loved the guest book at this home, because I did wonder how a VRBO could exist in sleepy little Bartow. Most people appear to be visiting family (like us), and as families grow and change sometimes you just need extra room. That said, this home could be a vacation destination in itself. Immaculately clean, drop-dead gorgeous inside and out, filled with all the amenities you might want and the cutest pool ever, we did not want to leave. The owner stopped by one time on check in with more clean towels and to make sure everything was all right, and was just the perfect host. I wish we knew more about VRBO norms because I'm not sure we were the greatest guests, but we sure appreciated this option and hope to be able to use it again.
