Three months in Margate.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable three bedroom two bathroom home. There is a full kitchen at the back of the house with windows looking out onto the private backyard. The door from the kitchen leads into the backyard where a large overhang from the house provides a shaded area with a patio table and barbecue. And just outside the reach of the overhang is a beautiful swimming pool with crystal clear water. The yard is a comfortable and private place to relax and is surrounded by a high fence and trees. The living room is at the front of the house and includes a large screen television. The wifi signal is strong inside the house and around the yard. The bathrooms are clean and functional. There is good water pressure and plenty of hot water capacity. The bedrooms have comfortable beds and closets with lots of hangers. There is a full size washer and drier. The neighbourhood is quiet and a nice place for a relaxing walk. There is a good selection of grocery stores close by. It is a quick drive to many beautiful beach communities such as Boca Raton, Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Hollywood. Access to the Turnpike, Sawgrass Expressway, and I95 are close by for trips to Palm Beach, Miami, and the Everglades. And if you have a chance visit some of the local jewels such as the Fern Forest, Butterfly World, Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, Wakodahatchee Wetlands, and the Green Cay Nature Center.

The listing, location, layout and amenities of the property was exactly as described. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner of the property and the manager provided excellent customer service very caring friendly and professional. When we first arrived at the property it was like a second home. The home was very clean, very affordable, the bedrooms were very spacious, and I cannot say enough nice things about this home. The backyard and the pool area was very nice and spacious. I would definitely recommend this vacation home to anyone who is looking for a second home. I just want to take the time to say thank you to the owners and the manager. They were very thoughtful and caring, also anytime I called the owner or the manager they were very quick to respond to my needs and concerns.

Great communication NOT impressed with the property. The best feature was the salt water pool!!

  • 2 of 5

However, upon arrival to the property we realized it's in a older neighborhood than we initially thought. When we went into the house it was clean. Some of the tiles on the floor were cracked and some that have been repaired in the restrooms etc were done by anyone who wanted to try as they were mismatched and fit ill. The bedrooms closest to the main restroom did not have lights on the ceilings and the ceiling fans did not work at all. The master bath has a stand up shower that was clogged so as we are showering the water just filled up. There is no vent in either restroom. The screens on the master bathroom were broken and the crank to open the window was not there so there was no way to open the bathroom window either, causing it to get extremely hot in there while showering. The sofas are black leather and not what is depicted in the photos. They are more of a futon style and very hard at that. There was another room in the house but it was locked and we had no access to it. Although it states linens are provided what they mean is they leave you many many sheets but only one thin throw blanket on each bed. These blankets sucked they left little blue fuzz balls EVERYWHERE, they are so thin that I had to go buy blankets to keep warm. It's been almost a week since I have returned home and washed everything and the blue fuzz is still on our stuff. When they say towels provided what they mean is they leave exactly one towel per person staying in the home and no washcloths whatsoever. The dining room states it seats 8 people but, the table only seats 4. Now, there is a small table in the kitchen near the window that seats 2. Apparently lizards etc just make their way in the house all the time. I put numerous lizards, salamanders outside and kept finding them inside. The outside grill hadn't been cleaned in quite some time. The yard really needs to be maintained. Grass needed to be cut, it just looks rough. The amount that we paid was a little steep considering the flaws in this home. Also I could understand having to pay a deposit on the home if it were in excellent condition but with all that was wrong with it the deposit was kinda ridiculous. We stayed 15 minutes from Disney the week before and rented a 4 bedroom 3.5 bath town home that slept 10 people, with a pool/water slides etc and paid less money than this home. You guys should reevaluate your rates and get rid of that deposit.

Owner's Response: As you can see people complain about different things all the time. No one has complained about the neighborhood, and trivial things. We Are suggesting, upon arrival, to check the place, if something is wrong, or not as they expect. And they say that they can rent other places better and at a better price. Please do so. We don’t push anyone to stay in our house, and we charge only the nights they stay in the house, and we give full refund for the rest of the days. There is lots of places around. One more thing. If there were lizards inside the house, it is because they left the doors open for long times, and that’s why we had our electricity bill really high, because the air condition, was trying to cool down when doors were open. That’s lack of consideration. If somebody else rents this house, please don’t feel that you have to stay all the time, just be reasonable and let’s make arrangements for things to be good on both parties. Thank you.

Disappointed vacation renter

  • 2 of 5

We started off enjoying our stay at this home. For the price it was a good home at first. By day number 3 the pool was unusable. There were hundreds of dead flies and debris in the pool. I tried contacting the owner after spending a long time trying to clean it myself. The Branches, twigs, and leaves did not bother me, as I would expect that in any pool. The real problem was that the filter was not working, and the pool was unusable. After many attempts to reach the owner, they returned my calls. They were apologetic but they didn't help me at all. In addition to the hundreds of dead flies, by day 4, there were hundreds of live tadpole (or some sort of fish), swimming in the pool! I was quite annoyed and disappointed, as the main reason we chose this home was for the pool. I even contacted the owners before the trip to make certain the pool would be clean/usable. After the trip I tried contacting the owners several times about some sort of reimbursement. They have ignored my several attempts to contact them. Inside the home was clean and nice, nothing fancy, but for the price it was good. Some bugs, but nothing too bad. I would say to rent this home, ONLY if you don't care about using the pool.

Owner's Response: We try to accommodate everybody, but there is some picky people, that are better off on a 5 starts hotel. The pool is in an open area, with lots of trees, and of course there is some little mosquitos that fall in the pool. Can you imagine a pool where the water pump/filter does not work !. I thought the water pump burn out. The water pump works 6 hours a day. The company in charge clean the little bugs, chemicals, etc. the next day. then two days after the same thing. After this person (guest) left the house, he started to ask for a refund. I have seen some people looking for any excuse. Just to get money back. I have seen that only the people who want money back, are the ones who find something to complain about. I had other people complaining about the pool being too cold, but they did not want to pay for the pool heater. Then day complained about the pool being dirty.
