"Did not meet our expectations"
My husband and I and our grade-school kiddos and new baby along with both of our parents booked this house for five days. We were so excited about it from the pictures and reviews, but it was disappoi… More
I sincerely apologize for your expectations not being exceeded. I pride myself on customer care and am disappointed in myself for not making you feel better about the situation. I found out about the pool pump over the weekend prior to your Tuesday afternoon check in and was under the impression by the pool service company that it was being handled by the pool builder due to pool pump being under warranty. The pool is only 8 months old and the pump was faulty, apparently, and is still under warranty. Anything that is within my scope of work gets handled immediately, including contacting the appropriate companies that handle certain issues. Not to point fingers or blame anyone else, however, the pool company who built the pool did not follow through as they were supposed to. I was unaware that it would take over a week for the warranty work to be completed. Some things are just out of my control. Had I known I would have let you know. I am working with the owner as to some type of compensation for your family for the inconvenience of the pool not running properly. I did all I could do on my end to handle the situation and I am truly sorry the pool company did not follow my lead and handle it in a timely fashion. I did make sure the pool service was done twice that week so the pool could be used. They provided service the day of your check in and the day after you checked in. The crabs and bugs are native to Florida and are impossible to get rid of, especially when you have an open pool without being screened in. Guests typically just scoop them out with the pool screen provided.
Our housekeepers are exceptional and they know now where they failed to meet your expectations. New guidelines have been put into place for them to follow. The home is bright during the day and since they clean during the day they do not turn lights on and so the light bulbs being burnt out was an oversight. They now know to turn all the lights on and check for burnt out bulbs. Again, I sincerely apologize that you had to purchase light bulbs and we will reimburse you with provided receipt if you have one. The cleaning crew stocks the home with plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, laundry soap, dish soap, etc.
We do hope you visit us again in the future and see that this home is not neglected and that I am a pleasure to work with. We have many return guests every year and this is a very popular home to book. Take care and I will be talking with you soon. Thank you for your review.

Sorry for the problem with heater with pool, it was an electrical problem with the breaker, it was during the holidays so it took the electricians longer than we wanted to get it fixed, but it is resolved. Owners are working on replacement of some the items mentioned, the unit has been well booked so when it slows down after season, these items will be addressed. Carpet issue has been dealt with.
We do agree with the guest that this unit is in an excellent location, the beach right across the street and the unit has all the amenities for relaxing stay. We do encourage the guest to come back, to see that some of their concerns which we appreciate have been dealt with. We thank them for their stay with us, and enjoyed meeting with them.
