Very Disappointing Overall
One of the biggest reasons we went with this rental was the pool and hot tub being available to us. The pictures of the inside accommodations were accurate, they were very nice. The first day we arrived we heard constant hammering coming from the main house second floor facing the pool. In a text message we were told it wouldn't be for much longer and it wasn't. Unfortunately, for all but one of our days there after that workers were going in and out of the house via a staircase in the pool area. The pool was a mess when we arrived and had we not cleaned it ourselves we wouldn't have used it as it was full of leaves and sticks. Our last day there one worker was chucking planks of wood from the second floor where it would land by the hot tub and another worker would pick up handfuls, walk around the pool and throw it into a truck. Our hosts never introduced themselves or apologized for the inconvenience. Seemed like the rental was more to offset the main house renovations versus someone wanting to provide an enjoyable stay to guests. Oh well
We appreciate the feedback and recognize that the work on the main house impacted the stay was less than ideal. Notification of the start of floor demo was given to us a day before the guest’s arrival and we communicated both the work being done and our apologies right away.
We do work hard to maintain our pool and hot tub but the property is surrounded by a dozen beautiful, mature oak trees that provide needed shade (along with leaves). We utilize a continuous vacuum system to combat the leaves, and skim surface leaves often. We also have once weekly lawn and pool service to maintain the surrounding area and the salt water pool system to keep the water crystal clear.
We care very much about our guest’s quiet enjoyment of the pool house, which is evidenced by many reviews. Communication is key, so please always let us know if you have a questions or concern so we can address it immediately and not impact your stay.
Lovely pool house
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely, clean and updated pool house. Great for a couple and centrally located- we took day trips to Anna Maria Island, Orlando, Clearwater and Parkland where Tigers do spring training. It was located walking distance to Tampa Bay in a very safe neighborhood. The owner was prompt to answer any questions.
Charming pool house in gorgeous neighborhood
My friend and I rented this while in town for a conference at Amalie arena. The drive was only 15mins or so but was so beautiful! Amazingly quiet, safe and beautiful neighborhood! Owners quick to help make accommodations for us! I’d def recommend this for a couple or only 2-3 ppl. Considering renting again I’m future!!!
Nice little efficiency
Immaculate, lots of light, well appointed. The owners were very responsive. Ballast Point is a nice area, very close to everything. I recommend!
Clean, quiet space. Very comfortable. Had everything we needed. Hosts were available for any questions but kept to themselves so we had plenty of privacy. Would stay here again.
Comfortable, Clean and Convenient
Our stay at the Pool House was enjoyable. The Pool House was clean and comfortable. It's a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to Ballast Point. Check in was very easy. I would recommend.
