We have stayed in villas in Florida a number of times and last year we decided to pay a bit extra and went for a larger villa where the pool area was larger as was the villa itself.
While the villa and pool size did not disappoint us and it was very comfortable we had a number of issues:
Pool had not cleaning net and when we requested one from the agent, we were told that they could not be provided in case of theft! Considering the amount of money we paid for our 3 week stay, I could not believe that - my husband communicated to them that we were unlikely to go to the trouble of taking a pool cleaning net back to Ireland but they were adamant that they would not provide. WHen we asked for someone to come and clean the pool, we usually had to wait days which was totally unacceptable. The logic is also questionable here - surely the villa was furnished with items that would be nore vaulable than a pool net?
ANother issue was the pool table in the games room which was tilted to such asn extent that it was impossible to play on. Despite someone coming to fix on a couple of occasions, it was still the same. We requested that it be replaced (it was advertised iwth this and my son was very disappointed that he could not use it) but thye agent again refused.
Please note that we made numerous calls and requests to the agent about these issues but were left feeling frustrated and got no satisfactory action.
I hope that the owner is made aware of these since it would stop us from renting that villa again. Read more
Response from VillaDirect Vacation Homes - 06/18/2009
Thanks for your feedback following your stay at "Amazing Villa" in July 2008.
Clearly, although America and Ireland speak the same language, there was a miscommunication regarding the pool net! VillaDirect performs standard pool cleaning and services every week to each pool under our care. The pool technicians carry pool nets and tools such as brushes, chemicals and filters on their trucks. It is true that our policy is not to leave pool nets and poles at the homes because of theft - but we're NOT suggesting theft by our guests!
In our 12 years of operating experience, the only way to stop unscrupulous neighbors and/or other pool service companies from entering and removing the nets from the pool area is to lock them against the frame. If we do that - you still can't use them. So instead, we bring them with us when we visit to service the pool.
Regarding the ping-pong table. Unfortunately we are unable to replace items that the owner has installed without the owners prior approval. When we raised this with the owner during your stay the owner would not allow the company to replace the table and insisted that he replace it on his next visit. Under such circumstances - as are unfortunately typical with vacation rental homes - there is little that the company can do other than to try to repair the item.
We are sorry that you experienced less than satisfactory service from our company.
