Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Villa Segunda - Avenida 23 - 100

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 16

This secluded, oak-sheltered enclave offers the perfect Sound side getaway for your vacation. The New Orleans style exterior of the home is warm and welcoming with its beautiful set of solid wood entryway doors and lush landscaping. The foyer is quite grand with high ceilings and an open stairwell on the left. The stairwell in itself is a work of art with unique wrought iron ivy details in the railing. On the right, the library entrance features another beautiful set of hand crafted, solid wood doors. The desk area is built in with high reaching custom bookshelves complete with rolling ladder. In here are also 2 sleeper sofas and a TV. Past the library is the glass bricked doorway entrance to the galley style kitchen. Cooking in this kitchen will be a pleasure with its polished granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, gas range top, and view over the breakfast bar out to the waterfront. Off the kitchen is a high top table and four chairs perfect for morning coffee and breakfast. The kitchen is open to the living area with lots of comfortable seating in front of the TV/entertainment center. Behind the living area is a more formal dining room with custom built-ins, a fireplace with carved wood mantel, and more picture windows for beautiful views of the water. The downstairs bedrooms are located behind the kitchen. Bedroom 1 has a queen bed and private bath. Bedroom 2 has two twin beds, and bedroom 3 has a queen-sized bed. These two bedrooms share a hall bath with a tub/shower combo. Laundry is also available in this hallway. The master bedroom is located up the staircase and down a windowed hallway. In here are 2 queen beds, a large walk-in closet with custom built-in shelving, and a huge spa style bathroom with a double vanity, jetted garden tub, and glassed walk-in shower with a shower bench. A separate lower level has a king bed and small kitchenette with a sink, microwave, coffee maker, and mini fridge. Large glass doors lead to a private waterfront balcony overlooking the pool. Imagine the peaceful mornings just being able to get up, make a cup of coffee, and step out onto your private deck, all without leaving your bedroom. With its high raftered ceilings and tons of natural light, this private suite is a vacation area all on its own. The home itself is wonderful, but it is the outdoor spaces that really make this house unforgettable. The living room doors open to a covered porch area with exposed beam ceilings and a comfortable seating area. This leads straight into the gated, sparkling private pool. The pool has a large deck area and with its artistic paver design, it will stay cool on your feet even on the sunniest of Florida days. Adjacent to the poolside porch is an enclosed, fully equipped outdoor kitchen and bar area. The huge outdoor kitchen has a refrigerator, sink, and two gas grill/cooking surfaces. The outdoor bar seating opens into a beautifully landscaped stone patio area with lush lawn and shade from the mature oak trees. Water side is a large deck leading to a private pier with more expansive decking for soaking in the sun. Truly escape reality with a vacation to this island resort of a home.

Reviewer Comments:

As a local who has rented from you before, I was actually appalled at the attitude I received when going to look at properties. Hope was downright rude to me. It was pouring down rain and I had seen 3 properties all in about 45 minutes, which in the rain isn't long at all. When I went back inquiring to see more she said well I could probably let you see one more with a rude tone. I asked why if you want me to rent from you would you not let me see as many as I wanted as long as they were available to see. She rudely told me there was a time limit. It was not close to closing time and there was no reason for her tone. I gave her the keys back abruptly and told her never mind. If I could have found a house with a different company that fit our needs I would have just due to this interaction. Unfortunately I did not. The property was what I expected because I went to see it before hand. It was important for me to have it be pet friendly. The location was great. There were dead **** roaches when we arrived and the floors were dirty, which wasn't appealing when a toddler is crawling around. The TV channel guide was also useless as it did not match the channels and several of the light bulbs were out. If I hadn't had such an awful experience dealing with your staff I would have probably called to ask for help with these things but on vacation didn't want to be brought down by anyone's attitude. As a local business owner I hope that this employees performance is evaluated and she knows she is representing not just herself but your name and reputation. ESPECIALLY WITH LOCALS.

This home is unique in that the first floor is at ground level and next to the pool and dock. Lots of outdoor space to enjoy including an outdoor kitchen for BBQ!

Reviewer Comments:

This was our second year staying at Avenida 23-100 and for the most part, the house is good. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms clean, and the pool well maintained. The kitchen is equipped with a nice stovetop, convection oven, and other amenities that you may need. However, if cooking is your thing, bring a cutting board and some sharp knives. Also, the outdoor kitchen grill did not operate, but there is a lovely new mini-fridge that worked wonderfully. The yard is terrific with plenty of green area for corn hole or bauchi. Wear shoes when on the pier, as it is weathered and you will get a splinter if not careful. Trust me. Also, the house is probably most comfortable for 8 but if you are a close group you may feel otherwise. Overall, we had a great stay and enjoyed the house and outdoor space tremendously

Reviewer Comments:

This home was perfect for our 7 day stay & outdoor wedding reception. The house sleeps 16 VERY comfortably & can entertain many groups in different areas with no problem. Pros definitely outweighed the cons. There are too many to list. The library=kids’ area. The outdoor kitchen was nice, but we only used the room (to house our buffet line for food during the reception), sink & table. Decking was enough for ten 6-seat oblong tables & a small dance area. Plenty of parking. Gulf is within walking distance & we caught lots of fish in the sound. Cons: The AC had a loud clanging noise for 2 nights. As two of the men who were staying in the home are licensed HVAC techs, they all were able to calm my nerves that this was a fixable issue & it could be fixed before our event. Few lightbulbs out but there was still enough lighting throughout the home. The outdoor stereo system had been tampered with & was not hooked up. There was a water leak from the master bathroom that leaked into the library. 1 ceiling fan didn’t work, 1 ceiling fan was on the blink. Remedies: Everything (except AC) was fixed within 24 hours of our initial call! AC repairman came & was unable to fix AC, but the next day he was able to temporarily fix it while waiting for the part. The office was able to provide us with a stereo system to use. The leak was due to the shower door needing to be adjusted- it was sagging & not able to shut all the way. The ceiling fans were REPLACED! The owners knew we were having an event & personally gave us new cushions for the outdoor area & offered to power-wash the entire decking & pool area! We were so pleased with how fast everything was fixed. The description is accurate, but there is only 1 sleeper sofa in the library. The other sleeper sofa is in the living room. All in all, we understand that this house is a popular rental & things DO happen. Overall, we had a VERY PLEASANT stay & enjoyed all features of the home. We’d definitely stay again!

The house and location are great. The house and the dock are in need of maintenance. The dock feels unsafe and part of it gave way with one of our guests walking. Fortunately no one was hurt. The property could be so much more with minimal routine maintenance.

Great place for a large family. We enjoyed having a private pool & having the beach nearby. The A/C went out during our stay, but they fixed it the same day. Some of the furnishings were broken. (one bed, the bar chairs were wobbly) Needs some updating and repairs. The floors were grimy, could feel sand on them. Overall we enjoyed our stay there. The outside common areas were nice for the family to gather.
