    The vents in the house needed cleaning badley, lots of dust and I have allergies. Their were multiple years in the pool screens letting mosquitoes into the enclosure and the house. The guest and myself had multiple bites. The house is on a canal which apparently drawing the mosquitoes to the area. I did enjoy the house in general, it was large and for the most part clean. I would not want to rent it again unless the owner had the area sprayed for the mosquitoes because a person could not be comfortable while constantly being bitten. The area was a good location for going to the beach, restaurants, shopping and such.

    Manager's Response:

    From the owner: "Hello,
    The pool screen protects mosquitoes but doesn’t work well on no-see-ums. As the house is on the canal, dusk and dawn time are the worst to be outdoor as no-see-ums are most active during those times.
    Scheduled maintenance was completed for AC units recently to address your vent concerns. Thank you"

    Lovely home. Right on the water for easy access with kayaks. Manatee were out in the water daily, lots of birds and wildlife to watch. We all enjoyed the pool, and just minutes from the beautiful beach.

    The property had all the amenities. Kids enjoyed the kayaks and we enjoyed fishing off pier behind the house. House was clean and kitchen had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again
