Great size property, small quiet community. We arrived at night so it would have been nice to have some lights on when we arrived. Property is spacious and we enjoyed our time. The back was not cleaned well from previous renters, pool was dirty and equipment to clean pool should be upgraded my husband had to repair the net to clean out the pool several times a day as the palm trees were not trimmed. Cord to the pontoon (electric) was hanging in the water. Pontoon never worked or the back lights. One of the security blinds broke and the owner did have someone come out a few days after and fix it and the repair person stated he had been there before. Owner was responsive and accommodating. It sure beats a hotel with great views and privacy. Could use some tlc and needs to stock daily supplies better like scissors, and the can opener doesn't work. I have seen similar reviews hope the owner takes these to heart as you could have a great rental with some improvements.

3/5 Okay

Should Have Been a Better Experience
This house shows well in the pictures and has some nice things going for it but there was a nagging variety of little problems that took away from making this a better experience. The Pros: 1. Big pool with a 5.5' deep end. 2. Nice view across the lake. 3. Pontoon boat with small electric motor. 4. Good AC. 5. Nice fridge. 6. All appliances work. 7. Beds were comfortable. 8. Nice little restaurant down the street. 9. Two single speed bicycles in garage. 10. Electric steel window coverings for security. Cons: 1. Ripped out chair sitting outside the front door. 2. Two broken drawers hanging out of dresser in master. 3. Shower knob didn't work in hallway bathroom. 4. Pool gets dirty quickly and hand skimmer was torn out. 5. Landscape bricks were jumbled around palm tree. 6. Old garden hose was strewn around on one side of pool. 7. Broken wind chimes laying on the ground. 8. Electrical by lake was non-functional. 9. Christmas lights on lakeside not functional, looks trashy and should be removed. 10. Non-functional Christmas lights on pontoon boat had broken bulbs on the carpet - dangerous and looks trashy, should be removed. 11. Carpet under shade area smells horrible and should be cleaned or thrown away. (We rolled it up and moved it during our stay) 12. Dirty blue pool covering was apparently our responsibility to put on and take off. This is an interesting house that has been expanded which explains why some of the electrical is in odd places and why there are elevation changes on the floor. We don't mind quirky but the cons we encountered are more from neglect, so our impression of this property is that it was a lower quality than we anticipated.
