Improper safety railings on stairs
On second day there I fell and fractured my humerus and required 5 staples in my head. I ha surgery on my arm after returning home. I still cannot use my arm or hand. Recovery is estimated to be a minimum of 3 months. The railing o the inside stairs is not continuous making it where you have to let go of one to reach for the other. We will be contacting you.
Vicki - Posted: 7/20/2022
Thanks so much for your comments and feedback. Although we would have much preferred being made aware of such an incident immediately, we do appreciate you sharing this with us now. After a thorough inspection of the stairwells, they are found to be in good condition and meeting both the County’s Short Term Rental Licensing requirements as well as Florida’s Building Code. In addition, this property does offer a residential elevator as a courtesy and convenience for guests with mobility issues or trouble navigating stairs safely without assistance. We wish you well in your recovery.

Tarpon Sound - Stay in June 2022
We stayed at Tarpon Sound for a week in June 2022. The house was beautiful and a perfect size for our mix of grandparents, parents, kids and grandkids. The only issues we found included the kitchen storage - there was none. I'm sure the pantry was one of the owner's closets which were locked, but that did not leave anything but counter space to put our groceries. Otherwise, the kitchen was great. We enjoyed all the appliances and openness to the living area, plus the full size wine fridge (that was awesome!). We also enjoyed the marvelous view of the water. Another issue was the WiFi which went out and took 2 or 3 days to get fixed. This would not have been a huge deal, but my daughter and son-in-law had to do a virtual court case for one of their foster children. We ended up using a lot of our phones hot spot data, but it worked out okay. The tech finally came and it took him over 2.5 hours to fix the issue, whatever it was. The stairs to the beach look intimidating when you first see them, but it really wasn't that bad making the trip. There is an elevator - it's small and very slow, but it got the job done. All of the bedrooms and bathrooms worked out great. There is a lot of space in the house and it's not only laid out well it's decorated beautifully. This is a trip we'd definitely book again.

Beautiful
The property is clean, spacious, and bright. Exactly as advertised with a bonus. Perfect location for swimming and boating. Easy communication with property manager. Close to a few good stores, and completely relaxing. We had a group of five adults and three children and it was no problem to have space to yourself or gather in the large front room. Beds were clean, kitchen well stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals and clean up. Overall it was a great week for us. We will be back!

Great Fun, Great Fishing and Great Food
Our stay at Tarpon Sound can be summed up as great fun, great fishing and great food. The house was very accommodating to our party of nine. (five adults and four teenagers). The location on Indian Pass is somewhat secluded as compared to the Cape and directly across from St Vincent Island. The house is very well maintained and everything was in working order. The bunkroom has 6 bunks, which was perfect for our four thirteen year old guests (grandson and his three friends) and located on the second floor separate from the adults all on the third floor. The kitchen is as advertised, all high end appliances and well laid out for a large group. The views are amazing of Apalachicola Bay, St Vincent Island and the Gulf of Mexico. Having the boat launch so close made it very easy to drop our boat in and out of the water allowing us to fish St Vincent Island daily and eat fresh fish several nights during our stay. The home has an elevator, which is centrally located, making it very easy to manage luggage, groceries and special guest. Overall, the house and location did not disappoint. Our family and guest all felt very comfortable and very welcomed. If there was one thing I could suggest, it would be the addition of a private pool for the younger group because of the depth and strong current of the water behind the home. We would stay in this property again. Thanks Rick and Jennifer

Everything was perfect for us.
Quiet and private but close to anything you might want. Our dog did not want to leave and neither did we. Top of the line in every way and sparkling clean. Did I say perfect?

Beautiful home; beautiful location
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Everything was great until we left and I called to reserve for the same time next year. We stayed here last year as well.
They must have thought I wanted to make a downpayment to purchase the house ... the rent nearly doubled. Very disappointing.

Exceeded all expectations!
The house layout is wonderful .... PLENTY of room to spread out : ) All accommodations are first rate and everything was impeccably clean. Lots of stairs ... thank goodness for the elevator!! Beautifully located right on the Indian Pass waterway, which is subject to fluctuations depending on tides and winds. This can affect fishing and kayaking. We enjoyed the beach and decks and will definitely be back next year .... same time, same place!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a wonderful time! The house was perfect...clean, plenty of space for 12 people, and gorgeous. We spent our days relaxing on beach and evenings on the upstairs balcony. The bunk room was absolutely perfect for our 6 kiddos and they loved having their own space. The bugs can be an issue in the evenings but we knew that from other reviews. Definitely bring bug spray!

Beautiful home!
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The home was absolutely beautiful! It was very clean, well stocked & with top of the line appliances , comfortable beds & linens & a great, private beach front location. We loved the fact that we could bring our dog to such a well appointed home & that he was allowed on the beach & in the water. If I would suggest one thing to future guests, bring bug spray!! Not so much on the beach, but on the decks or area where you park your car, the mosquitoes are rampant at all hours of the day. We loved the easy access to the boat ramp, just steps from the home, so bring your boat or jet skis. Truly a beautiful home!
