  • Awful - Not even close to a 'paradise'


    No number at property to help with locating-checked in after calling host to ascertain property location-was showering when water stopped coming out of showerhead-called host and explained that we were in our 70's and could not stay with immediate issues occuring-advised host we would need to leave immediately in the morning and we discussed that I would get a credit/refund-we left right away in the AM. Host had indicated he would contact Evolve in the AM regarding refund. We never received a refund and have been advised that without a video and/or pictures to support our claim, there would be no refund (about $1300!) Other issues upon arrival: musty smell in areas with older carpet, main closet had no room to hang clothes, I would not have even considered bathing in tub in hall bath, advertised dock was destroyed and not usable, shower door in main bath needed good cleaning. Evolve is a third party and will not be addressing consumer needs in my opinion. There are there for the host. This stay has changed my opinion of using VRBO for vacation stays. We left there and went to a hotel so we ended up paying double for our time in FL. Very bad taste in my mouth over this.

  • Riverside Dump


    Pictures do NO JUSTICE! This place was a dump. Ac barely worked vent in 2nd bedroom didn't work at all and it was open. Ceiling fan in 2nd bedroom was broke. Home was filthy,dust and bugs everywhere. Florida room windows was so filthy you couldn't see out to see river. Carpet mixmatched. Beds hard as rocks. Dock rotted and washed away.riverbank full of weeds.weeds growing out roof of porch, scrap metal piled up,barrels of chemicals around yard, nothing of what we expected! We Contacted rental company and was blown off..Never again..

  • Perfect get-away!


    Loved the house but really enjoyed the river and nature around us the most. Very responsive owner and our stay was fantastic. My only complaint is that we couldnt stay for a few more days ;)
