Great house, but there are some issues
The layout of the house is great. There was plenty of room for my family of 6 plus my parents. The kitchen is well equipped, and the house is clean. There are some issues you should be aware of before you rent, though. The lanai is falling in. I'm not sure if this is hurricane damage or lack of upkeep, but there are several places where the screen was falling in or missing. The skimmers were also broken, or almost broken when we tried to skim the pool. While we were there, the pool heater was broken. We were refunded our pool heating fee, but that was after several days of asking the owner to look into the issue, and reporting what we were seeing/feeling. It was very frustrating, since he kept giving us excuses and telling us it was, in fact, working properly. My husband also got locked in the master bathroom on 2 separate occasions. The sliding door to the bathroom won't stay shut unless it's locked, but then it's impossible to open the door from inside the bathroom. Finally, the thermostat is behind a plastic box, so you are not allowed to adjust the temperature to your liking. When we first arrived, the weather was cool, but the thermostat was set to the air conditioner so the house was very chilly in the morning. If some of these things are fixed, it would be a fantastic place to rent. The location is also really good, but there are definitely things that need to be changed before I rent again.
