    The house is grand but does need some updating. The carpets need to be replaced. Sure is a nice big housethat was grand in it's day.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Gail, we take guest feedback seriously and have reviewed your comments with the homeowner and we would like to share the following:
    We strive to provide our guests with a great guest experience, so we were disappointed to hear your feedback and want to take a moment to address your concerns.
    - The property is designed as a French Chateau, which gives it a unique and timeless charm. While it might differ from modern aesthetics, we believe it adds to the property's character. The house, built in 1987, has recently undergone many updates, and we are committed to continue making significant investments to improve our home for future guests.
    - We use a cleaning team to professionally clean the home before each guest's stay, and they ensure it is spotless and safe prior to each guest's arrival. Carpets are professionally cleaned regularly to maintain cleanliness.
    - We were disheartened to find certain areas needing attention after your stay. Spilled drinks and damaged items were unexpected. We value respect for our property and are addressing these issues to maintain the grandeur of our home.
    We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests.

    This location is breath-taking! The pictures don't do this place justice! The beautiful decor, marble floors, soft plush carpet, beautiful antic pieces, beautiful chandeliers, and so much more! Amazing! It was EXTREMELY CLEAN! Came with everything you need for a stay in a little peace of Paradise! Extra towels, paper towels, even measuring cups for perfection of an entree you desire to create in this perfectly constructed kitchen. Quiet, gorgeous, exquisite, a palace! I will be staying here everytime am in Winter Haven. This was a home away from home! The host were Incredibly! I recommend this location and give it 10 Stars because 5 just is not enough!

    4 people from our company had to train for a crane certification. We treated them to this house vs hotel rooms and they loved it. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

  • Gorgeous home. Definitely coming back.

    5/5

    We were happy to receive a few emails before our stay with instructions and videos about various things like how to use the front door lock, using appliances and ice maker as well as how to turn on some lights. When we arrived, the lock worked as described and we were inside. We had 3 couples, and the large home along with 5 bathrooms and 4 showers made it so easy to get ready to go out and do stuff. Lots of fun was had around the Pool - the Pool is spectacular! We rented a pontoon boat at Marine Supply and boated around the Chain of Lakes one day, which was so much fun. The house’s private dock with covered boat slip was great to have in the afternoon when it rained.

    There is so much to see and do around Winter Haven, everyone had a great time. One night we stayed in and cooked, Publix is less than a mile away. The kitchen has many brand-new appliances including a cool drawer microwave which we had never seen before. We enjoyed happy hour one afternoon and invited a few friends over. Everyone loved the house and hanging out on the pool patio. One of our friends played a couple songs on the piano, which was marvelous. Our mornings were relaxing with the amazing view overlooking the lake. We all Loved it! We’ll definitely be back this summer for more fun in this awesome home.
