Could get a five star after badly needed maintenance and repairs. Manager good to work with.

  • 2 of 5

Hernando Beach is a good location for an extended stay in Florida. We spent a month and enjoyed being in a non-touristy area. The natural beauty of the area is wonderful.

We had problems with this rental. The manager, Carol, worked so hard to help with the issues. We think she is limited in what the owner has allowed her to do to make the necessary improvements.

First of all the house apparently flooded in late 2017 and there is mold in the bathrooms and kitchen. The house had not been cleaned when we arrived and I spent time wiping down surfaces and washing the floors before we could unpack. Some of the cabinet shelves needed to be cleaned before we could unpack our food.

There is not a 3rd bedroom as advertised. The room they refer to as 3rd bedroom is a sunroom with twin built ins that connects to the master suite, pool area and family room. It is fine for parents to be close to children but not suitable for adults.

The bed linens in the master and second bedrooms did not fit the beds and some had holes. If we had been there for a week it probably would not have mattered but we were there for a month. We would wake up to find the fitted sheet had come off on the edges.

The pool area needs to be power washed to remove the mold that is on the floor and walls. The screen enclosure has many loose areas and let a lot of bugs in over the course of the month. The kayak ropes are old and shredding and need to be replaced for safe tie up on the dock.

With that being said the pool was wonderful and we enjoyed our time on the lanai. Be aware that the pool is heated with propane and could be costly to heat. The roof over the lanai needs to be replaced or repaired as grit washed from the roof into the hot tub and pool. There is also a small but nice fenced area for a dog’s “business”.

This could be a terrific rental after some badly needed maintenance and repairs. The location is great on the canal and near the Gulf. We appreciate all that Carol did to try to remedy the problems we encountered.

Owner's Response: Our continuing goal is to provide a clean and welcoming environment and to make sure our guests are comfortable and satisfied. We are disheartened by this guests review we wish them well and tried to address their every concern. I hope their next vacation rental will more closely meet their expectations. We exterminated prior to their arrival . The third bedroom has two FULL size beds . After the last hurricane the house was fully remodeled and treated for mold. This is the first guest we couldn't meet their expectations. We have always had good reviews stating how clean and nicely kept our rental is. Kayak ropes have been replaced and that was pollen on the lanai. which we get this time of year,No evidence of mold and doors need to be kept closed not opened so bugs can go in. We can't get all the bugs outside though this is Florida ! Sheets fit fine and replaced with extra new ones. The cost to heat the pool/jacuzzi does get expensive if the heater is constantly running when not using. Shouldn't be left on when no one is home all day. House is clean and sanitized as always. Please read our other guest reviews.

The house definitely shows its age a little, but over all it was very comfortable and well maintained. My family really enjoyed their time here.

Check in and check out easy. Amenities as advertised and functional. Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Pool was great. Potential safety issue with stairs down to sea wall from patio- could use a railing. Location great. Near great restaurants. Sunsets phenomenonal. Kayaks a bonus. Screen section missing on porch should be fixed to keep bugs and leaves out.

Owner's Response: Thank You Paul for your response. We had the screens repaired which got damaged a couple days prior to your arrival during a storm. We appreciate your feedback. Thanks again !

Family get away đź’š

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! We had daily adventures on the canoes. Saw dolphins and fished around the clock. The kids spent all hours in the pool, and my husband and I enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub at end of day. Restaurants and shopping were close by. Lots of parks around to which, as nature bugs, we loved.

Amazing week!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of six. The two bedrooms that were attached worked well for myself and two young children. The grandparents had a side all to themselves. Plenty of living space to be together or spread out. Pool and patio were absolutely amazing. We had all our meals on the patio. Dock was great for fishing and boating. We even saw dolphins swimming between the patio and dock! We are already talking about coming back next summer.
