Beautiful home, but very dirty

  • 3 of 5

First, let me say that this house is beautiful. It is exactly what we were looking for. Unfortunately, we discovered on the first day, that it hasn't been really cleaned in quite some time. At first glance, it looked like the basics were done by housekeeping before our arrival. By our first night, we experienced several issues with the lack of cleanliness in the house. The lower bunks in the family suite downstairs smelled very strongly of urine and we had to wash them just to sleep there. It was awful! One of the King beds on the third floor had a dead bug in it. Within 30 minutes of walking around the house, our socks and/or feet were completely black. These floors were absolutely filthy. The showers had mold in the corners and along the shower door rails too. It is so unfortunate, because it really is a great house for a huge extended family or friends to stay in at the beach, but due to the lack of cleanliness, I cannot recommend it.

Owner's Response: We're so sorry to hear about the cleanliness. If you had informed us we would have sent a new crew out immediately to address your concerns and make sure it was spotless for you along with free lunch while you were out letting it be cleaned. Thank you for the positive home review, it really is a wonderful home and the cleaning concerns are already being relayed to our crews and staff to ensure this doesn't happen again.

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

The minute you pull into the driveway, you are impressed. Utopia house met all of our needs and beyond! We had a large group of high school graduates for their senior trip, and they were thrilled with this house! Many expressed they had never stayed in a nicer home. Utopia does not disappoint! Very close to several restaurants, even in walking distance.

The house was gorgeous along with the surrounding neighborhood. The pictures and description of home were honest from the website. I loved the convenience of a code to unlock the door instead of worrying about house keys. We all loved the private gate access to the beach. The pool was also lovely. It was a great time had by all 20 of us! We didn't want to leave.

Perfect House by the Beach

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I are staying here in spring and absolutely love the visit. The house is next door to tennis courts, the pool, and a short walk to the beach. We also can walk to nearby restaurants, but have been using the grill at the house. The home is large and has a bright beach feel to it.

I recommend this house to anyone wanting to be close to the beach in a beautiful home.

Horrible disappointment

  • 1 of 5

Rented for 3 months (Dec, Jan, Feb). Very poorly decorated with cheap furniture. No view. Vynl flooring. Small kitchen. 13-14 houses from the beach, not 8. Worst part was the false claim that accross the street was a "heated pool". The pool is not even in sight from the house, and it is not heated during our stay, and we could not get a response to emails and phone calls from the managers to resolve the issue. Definitely not worth the price.

Owner's Response: To our future guests please see the previous reviews are all a 5 star experience and this is a repercussion to not giving a free 3 month stay. This guest tried to scam us and used the VRBO review system as attempted leverage. They stayed happily and quietly for 2 months then wanted a full refund and still be allowed to stay the 3rd month for free as well. No real reason provided other than the pool was only heated for 4 weeks during their stay and they wanted the HOA to heat it the entire time just for them and didn't get their way. Offered a discount as recompense but that was declined and they only wanted a full 3 month stay for free and even tried to dispute the card charges, which were of course denied by the credit card company. To clarify there is no laminate in the home at all. It's either Tile, Hardwood or very expensive seagrass carpet in every room and bedroom of the home. All were installed brand new at the beginning of 2014 and are in immaculate condition. All the furniture was also purchased at that time and is exactly as pictured in the listing. It's not cheap or worn and the kitchen is also exactly as pictured in the listing. The pool is heated during winter and spring holidays and that is laid out and explained in the listing as well. There has been some recent construction in the neighborhood so if there are now a few more homes built in between this and the beach it will be looked into and the details updated but it's still the same distance and around a 3 minute walk to the beach.
