  • Great stay!

    5/5

    We had a great stay! The house was perfect for us. Parents in one bedroom, kids in the twin beds, grandparents in another. Everyone raved about the comfort of the mattresses. The extra door to the living room gave peace of mind when littles went to sleep so the adults could still watch tv. The pool was fabulous and having green space to kick a ball was great. It was so nice to not have to worry about extras, like toilet paper, plastic bags, laundry detergent, all those little extras you have to worry about when renting a house. Stuff for the beach, toys and books for the little kids, this house had it all. Great base for all of our Tampa, Bradenton visits. The only con I heard all trip was that the bathroom was a bit through the house if you need to use it while in the pool.

    Owner's response: "Mark, We go out of our way to offer exceptional hospitality to our guests. We appreciate your feedback and welcome the opportunity to address and clarify your concerns.
    - The sliding doors do lock, I'm sorry if my explanation was not clear. These are old doors and they lock differently than what most people expect. We do have new doors ordered but they did not arrive before your trip and could not be installed.
    - The pool is listed as a "private outdoor pool" in the amenities it is not a heated pool. We typically have warmer weather so a heated pool is not necessary and most people do not have heated pools. We have experienced some cooler-than-normal weather as it was while you were here.
    - While we try to accommodate all guests' comfort, we're sorry the mattress didn't meet your preferences. The queen bed is brand new and we were unaware of any issues with the sleeping accommodations. We purposely have 2 firm, 1 medium, and 1 soft mattress in an attempt to accommodate different preferences.
    - We are happy that you utilized the 2 stall garage to store your large truck inside and apologize for any inconvenience due to the temporary storage of commercial boxes related to our family business. The majority were moved out on day 4 of your 17-day stay. We would have been happy to move the remainder if we were aware that it caused concern. This was a temporary situation and has been resolved.
    - We are located in a beach town and the traffic increases during peak tourist time each year. The local traffic has also increased due to the growth in our area. We are sorry that you found it inconvenient.
    We truly go above and beyond for our guests, and we are confident that future guests will have excellent stays! We will continue to deliver the 5-star experiences we are known for."

  • Beautiful Home

    5/5

    We were in town for a family wedding. The home we rented was extremely clean and well laid out for what we needed. It was close to everything in Apollo Beach and felt very private.

  • Long weekend

    4/5

    This property suited our needs perfectly. It was clean and in the location we needed. Very responsive hosts. My only recommendation is to have more toilet paper on hand. There was an extra roll in each bathroom, but it was not sufficient for the needs of three women.

    From the owner: 'We are happy that the Flamingo House suited your needs perfectly. We would have been able to respond to your need for more toilet paper if we were made aware. We provide the welcome letter with our contact information for this reason, and we are very close by. We base our supplies on data from past guests to ensure adequate supplies. The reservation was for 3 adults for 3 days, so we were unaware of your specific needs, and we are very sorry for this. You also requested to check in earlier and check out later which we were happy to accommodate which could have contributed to your additional needs. So very sorry that this happened. Thank you."
