The Mona Lisa house was even more beautiful in person then in the pictures,ideal quiet residential location the entire process was simple and easy Will definitely vacation there again
The home is beautiful, well stocked, and clean. Unfortunately when we arrived the home was not ready for us. The bedding in both the master and 2nd bedroom were dirty. We also could not find any binder with instructions for the home. Apparently there was some confusion between the rental company and the cleaners as to when we were checking in. The rental company said they would send someone the following day. That meant we either had to make up the beds ourselves with dirty sheets, or improvise. I ended up sleeping with our young son in the 3rd bedroom that appeared to be untouched and my husband slept on a couch. The next morning the cleaners came and we had to stay there while they cleaned waiting to be "checked in" to the property. We requested a credit for the first night of our stay but were disappointed when told we could only expect a $75 discount on our $180 rate. Additionally, the downstairs powder room toilet clogs very easily. We had to plunge it several times. It also runs some times (as a previous reviewer mentioned). The 3rd night of our stay, it ran and overflowed, flooding the entire bathroom with about an inch of water and spilling out into the hallway. (We were outside eating dinner so did not notice it was running.) We cleaned that up and washed all of our towels. We had to use the upstairs bathrooms until the next day when the management company sent someone. That wouldn't be such a big deal unless you're swimming and hop out of the pool to use the restroom!
All of that being said, the home is really lovely and we did enjoy most of our stay. The pool and spa were terrific, the beds were very comfortable. I loved sitting out on the boat dock and watching the turtles, catfish, and ducks swimming around. The catfish leaping out of the water cracked us up every time! The view at the corner of the canal is even better than we expected. The kitchen has everything you could need except that the ice maker does not work.
We have been renting vacation homes twice a year for the past 15 years. No place is perfect but this one is pretty darn good. If it hadn't been for these issues we would have given it 5 stars. It's hard to say if I would recommend this property to a friend. Had everything gone smoothly, I would definitely recommend it.
The house was very nice and comfortable. It had everything that we needed, the pool and spa got lots of use as the weather was perfect. The beds were comfortable and master bath was perfect. The only drawbacks was the downstairs toilet ran and the ice maker didn't work. Over all I would rate it a 10!
