    The house was nice. It had newish furniture. It Looked clean but it wasn't. My bare feet got So dirty walking Inside the house. The bottom of my pants and the dog beds, blankets picked up a lot of " hitchhiker" weed pods. So the cleaning service Clearly are not using a vacuum or a mop. There aren't any waterproof mattress covers. The body fluid stains on the king size bed are Frightening, from top to bottom. I took a picture but I can't post it here. I found trash under the bed and a dog toy full of moldy food. I dropped my hair tie on the floor beside the master bath vanity, picked it up and it was covered in dust/ filth.We had to wipe down the outdoor furniture to use. The pool needs to be cleaned even though it's too cold to swim. I was going to do a load of laundry but the washer was full of dirty towels. That's probably where most of the wash clothes were. This was my first time renting a vacation home. I'm not sure we will do this again. It Clearly was not worth the money that we spent on it. I recommend getting another cleaning service and please get that mattress steam cleaned with Bleach so your future guests won't be as grossed out as I was.

    Manager's Response:

    Owner's response: "Michelle, the right vacation home is everything, and we're disappointed that we did not give you the 5-star experience we are accustomed to providing our guests.
    - There is no excuse for the home not being 100% guest-ready clean and sanitized. We are in the home now and doing a deep clean to ensure that nothing gets missed in the future. We have had some issues with our cleaning crew and will be looking at new cleaners. I can't say I'm sorry enough to make this right but I want you to know that I will do what I can and if you were to return please know that this would not happen again.
    We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests. We will continue to deliver the 5-star experiences we know we can deliver."

  • Pool home at a great price!


    Interior was as pictured, pool lanai had aged but screens were replaced while we were staying, so all new. Quiet neighborhood and easy to I-75. Only points off were just location being far from Ocala downtown. Property manager Kelly went out of her way for us and returned every call/text. That extra bit of service made this a 5* review from our family!

    The pool was a refreshing temperature with the screened in porch. It made for a relaxing stay!
