  • Wonderful weekend getaway


    This was a wonderful quite place to stay. Enjoyed the walk to breakfast. Jim was a great host and very knowledgeable on the area with suggestions of things that could be done as well.

  • Perfect!


    The home is a quirky mid century modern oasis close to everything. Parks, beaches, Publix. The fires in the firepit were outstanding. The little fresh yellow tomatoes were addicting. The grounds were well kept, lush with local Florida treasures. Outstanding assistance on call with a simple text. I've stayed at many home rentals and this by far met and exceeded all my expectations.

    The host was pleasant and friendly. You can tell that he takes great pride in providing an inviting, clean and delightful environment. I I wish I could've stayed longer.

  • Pictures look a lot better than the property


    My wife and I were very disappointed in this house. It looks great on the VRBO website, but In actuality the house is poorly lit, the furniture from the sixties is old and unappealing, the bathroom is dated (the drain doesn't work very well), and the yard, while very well kept, needs attractive landscaping. The washer and dryer are located in a crowded work shed outside the house. The caretaker is nice, personable, and responsive, but clearly, the house owner has put little money into the property. We tried to stay away from it as much as possible during our vacation.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Richard, thanks for your review. After going over your feedback with the homeowner, we wanted to address the items that you mentioned:
    - Evolve uses professional photography for the home, so all decor and furniture you see on the listing are as advertised, but we're sorry if this caught you off guard.
    - The bathroom is the original 50's style by design with modern fixtures and is also accurately shown in the listing photos. As soon as the drain issue was reported, the Guest Contact addressed and resolved the situation.
    - The floor to vaulted ceiling windows offer plenty of natural light, and there are also multiple lights to provide additional lighting.
    - Since the washer and dryer aren’t available for guest use, we don’t market them as an amenity in the listing. The Guest Contact kindly offered the laundry as a bonus amenity to help your group.
    - The yard is well-maintained and full of natural Florida live oaks, moss, lush green plants, and citrus trees. It's intended to be a peaceful, clean, and natural retreat.
    The owner and their team work hard to provide an ideal stay for all guests, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests!
