3 Bedroom 3 Full Bathroom (Sleeps 8) In Old Florida Village
Minimum age of primary renter:25
Home away from
I have nothing negative to say about this property! Check in was simple and speedy. Rooms, toilets, and linens were all crisp and clean. So many extra blankets and pillows! We also found zero problems with the plumbing, and the washer and dryer being upstairs close to the master bedroom was such a welcome surprise! There is no “governor” on the thermostat like someone previously mentioned in their review. In fact, there is duel thermostat in this home! One for the top floor and one for the bottom. The entire house stayed cool the entire week we were there! Another added plus was that each bedroom has their own private balcony. Home is close to the swimming pool and the neighborhood is within walking distance to the beach, Goatfeather’s restaurant, an ice cream shop and a beach gear rental company. I absolute love love LOVE the neighborhood. This is our second year to book a home on Hidden Lake Way and we are HOOKED! Thank you for a wonderful week! This truly was a wonderful home away from home.
Best vacation house
The house was absolutely amazing!! Perfect location close to shopping, groceries, beach you name it. The house even had board games and movies for the kids that we didn’t even think of packing, our family of 10 had more pillows and blankets than they knew what to do with, the neighborhood guests and owners were so polite and friendly!! Must say we will be back
Plumbing was terrible. Had to call for maintenance twice on commodes. Response from property contacts was close to rude. Place not clean. Mold and mildew over all decks and railing. Place needs complete upgrade. Air conditioning has what I can only describe as a governor like on go cart. TV’s in rooms are small computer screens. We will not ever book “Robins Nest” again.
There is nothing wrong with the plumbing in this home. You clogged the master toilet twice while here, no one was rude to you, however you kept calling our office every 30 minutes asking when maintenance would be there to fix the problem caused by your party. Each time you reported the problem, maintenance was there in less than one hour the first time and less than 2 hours the second time. The air conditioner works fine and there is no "governor" on the thermostat. Any issues you mention here would have been easily fixed had you bothered to report them to our office while you were here.
Great location but house could use updates
We enjoyed our stay and the location was great. Easy walk to Gulf Place and beach access. Cute family neighborhood. We had an issue upon arrival with the master bedroom linens. We were turning down the bed that night and discovered the comforter clearly had not been washed and had some blood stains on it. Also, the ceiling fan above the bed had large cobwebs hanging from it in clear view. The dishwasher had not been emptied from the previous renter either. I called the after hours maintenance and left a message. They responded immediately the next morning saying they would have the head of housekeeping check in with us. A lady called me literally 5 mins later saying that she would come by, bring a new comforter and do another walk through. I was very pleased with the speed in which the problem was met and both people I spoke with were very courteous. The house really just needs a good cleaning and someone to oversee it better. The other problem was that all the porch furniture was EXTREMELY old and dirty. We would have loved to use our master bedroom screened in porch but the furniture and cushions were disgusting. Porch furniture is very cheap to replace and simply changing it out with new cushions would make a world of difference. The outdoor shower also does not work and the hose connected at the front walk had several holes in it and didn't work.
All in all, it's a nice neighborhood and good location but we won't be staying there again due to all of the issues. They are all simple inexpensive fixes that definitely need to be taken care of. It would definitely change the rental experience. Details such as those are important and shouldn't be overlooked.
It was beautiful and slept everyone comfortably.
Plenty room. Very nice on the eyes. Quiet area and had plenty extra pillows and bedding to hold all 10 of us comfortably. The only problem was the trash that was left by previous vacationers was left and we had no room for trash but they fixed that very timely. The washer also didn't work and the shower outside didn't work and the gas grill was rusted and we couldn't use it. But other than that it was a beautiful experience.
Had a GREAT Stay!
We just recently got home from our stay in Santa Rosa Beach at The Robins Nest. My family of 3 shared this house with a family of 5 and there was plenty of room. The bunk room had an extra pull-out bed on the bottom bunk, so it fit all 4 girls perfectly. The beach was about a 10 min walk from the house, so most of the time we walked, as it was hard to find a parking place at the public beach entrance. Old Florida Village had 2 different swimming pools and had lots of families with children - the girls loved making new friends at the pool. We took advantage of the free paddle board and bike rental, and it was a great plus!!
