“Loved it so much I kept extending our stay...”
We live in Tampa and were in the process of staging and selling our house. We needed a place to escape on the weekends for showings and inspections. We fell in love with the proximity to the beach and the surroundings. it was quiet and our family enjoyed it so much. You aren't in a condo scenario (which I've stayed in plenty of times) it is so private. It feels so much like a home and the rooms are large and the bathrooms are nice.
“Perfect Location; comfy and cosy”
The beach is literally at your doorstep. The condo itself is quite comfortable and "homey" and is well equipped for almost all your needs. And it is pet friendly! As well, Liz Barrett, the rental agent is very attentive to your needs and checks to make sure everything is to your satisfaction.
“House and property poorly maintained.”
Trash, cigarette butts, branches and debris scattered across property. Tree braches so low they scrapped the top of our vehicles. Grass and plants overgrown along side of house...had to push through a thorny bush. Gates for outside shower area don't latch. One bedroom has a curtain for a door...had to walk through that bedroom to get to another bedroom. Full/twin size beds - no queens. Only one bathroom in the house and it smells like urine due to poor plumbing...it's directly above the toilet in the garage. Shower curtain rod hung with electrical wire attached to the ceiling. Banister about to fall off. Some of the electrical wire routing is sketchy and likely not up to code. Screens and windows in Florida room in poor condition letting in bugs and humid air continuously. ONE A/C window unit for entire downstairs. Florida room furniture very uncomfortable. Dining area furniture OK. Contract poorly written. Some of the verbiage will make you feel like your 12 years old and getting scolded by your parents. Owner not customer friendly. I've rented houses all over the southern states over the past 15 years. BY FAR, this was the worst owner and property. I'll end on a positive note - lots of room and it was on the beach.
Response from the owner We appreciate any feedback that is honest and not exaggerated. Our area experienced record setting rainstorms the past two weeks at end of July 2015. Unfortunately these guests were here for them. There is a direct correlation between frivolous complaints and bad weather. So yes the grass, yard was a bit unkempt as the landscaping service couldn't come out in this weather. Perhaps trash blew in off beach in the storms with but our house keepers pick up the yard as well as clean the house. Unless the guests were over 3.5 feet wide they wouldn't have had any "thorny bushes" touching them - there are two sides of the house to get to the backyard plus two doors from the living room area to the backyard/beach. This property is 1/3 acre beachfront. The driveway has room to park on south or north side of driveway. The trees are over the northside. These guests easily could have parked on the southside and avoid tree branches scraping their vehicles. The outside shower door has been adjusted so now it does latch. Yes there are queen beds in the house. According to the maids, these guests did not have good aim and that is what caused the urine smell. This house has been rented all summer and no other renter has complained about a urine smell. The banister has been more tightly secured. Each bedroom has its own AC window unit and one very large AC wall unit for downstairs with fans have worked well for other guests with no complaints. This is an "authentic Florida Beach House" from 1950s. It is not luxurious - it is CLEAN and very spacious for a low price! A GOOD VALUE! All pics of this property are clearly shown on our website of furniture, bedrooms, yard etc. Since 1994 I have been doing real estate rentals and sales in this area and have an excellent reputation. I have never had guests complain about my reservation agreement "making them feel like a 12 year old being scolded by their parents". I think that says volumes of what type of people these guests were along with these exaggerated complaints. I live 2 blocks south of this rental home. My self and staff do anything we can to help make a guest's stay a wonderful one! If there are any problems we are only a phone call or text away. We have a super fast response time to address any issues during someone's vacation. I invite anyone to call 727-455-2832 for an Appt to view any of the properties LIZARD REALTY manages and see for your self. THANK YOU for the taking the time to read my side of the this review. Sincerely, LIZ BARRETT Broker LIZARD REALTY
Although the house it's a bit out dated, it's well Equipped and spacious.
“Steps to the beach!”
Walk right out the door and the sand is in your toes. Gorgeous white sand beaches on the Gulf. Super casual and comfortable on the inside with a/C in all the upstairs bedrooms. Love the outdoor shower! Great for large groups. Full kitchen allows for cooking meals throughout your stay. We've been visiting this great home for 15 years. Ice cream store, coffee shop and 7-11 all within walking distance.
The backyard of the beach house is right on the beach. You have the white sands and beautiful beach to view. The outside shower lets you clean off before entering the house. The house is airy, bright and has all the conveniences you need to have a fun and enjoyable vacation. Conveniently located to restaurants if you prefer to eat out. This is a great house if you are looking to relax and enjoy the sun and the water.
“sit on the beach, relax!”
The house is awesome for easy access to the beach asap! It is one of the only homes I have ever been in where you literally open the back (front?) door and walk out onto the sand. There is a huge tree in the back (front?) yard that gives great shade between the beach and the house. Just a few yards from the house, your toes are in the sand and you are looking at beautiful water. The house itself is clean, lots of beds upstairs for the guest and aC works great! Really neat outdoor shower which we used the whole weekend instead of indoors. b.c why not? your at the beach?!
“Wonderful beachfront home with everything you need!”
We've been coming to this house for years and it truly is one of our favorite places. Walk out the door and straight onto a gorgeous beach with beautiful sunsets. The kitchen has everything you need so you never have to go out to eat, but there are plenty of great restaurants near by if you want to. The bedrooms have lots of space and can sleep up to 11 people. One of our favorite parts is the outdoor shower. Its fully enclosed to ensure privacy so you can take all your showers outdoors! My kids love it and get mad when they can't shower outside if there's a thunderstorm.
We had a family reunion at the Beach Bums House and could not have had a better time. When you open the door, you are literally right on the beach! This was the ideal spot for us to take our young children because we didn't have to lug all of our beach items down any elevators or across any streets. The kids loved being able to run right out the door after breakfast to play all day long. The large windows looking out over the beach are great! I was able to watch my husband and kids play while getting dinner ready, etc. We already have started planning when our next trip will be and cannot wait to return!
