“Location perfect, Characterful House, warm welcome, accommodation adequate”
Reviewed 28 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This is a delightful house in a superb location - walking distance to shops, supermarket & a short walk to Edison/Ford Winter Estates - so worth a visit. The house is old Florida Craftsman-style with a delightful porch perfect for watching the world go by in the evenings. The Property Manager is charming, efficient & very helpful. The apartment is spacious, but sadly not to a high standard - a wasted opportunity by the owners - this could be a stunning place to stay. The pool is newly installed, but shared by the 5 apartments in the house & apartments in 2 other houses, so in the high season there could be at least 20 people around the pool - the Naples kitchen/diner looks directly onto the pool area, so noise during the day & evening could become an issue. The bedroom is situated at the front of the apartment, so noise is already a problem with foot traffic for other apartments via front door & stairs. Floors are wooden, ceilings are not soundproofed, so you can hear every word & footfall from guests above. The bedroom also looks onto the car park. However, for the price it is great value for money, but with a few improvements it could be fabulous, though more expensive. This property is aimed at the young, European market used to house sharing - great if whole property booked by a single group, or you become friendly with other guests, not so good during the winter months when clientele is more mature, used to privacy & requiring a good nights sleep. As already stated TV is ltd, great if you want to watch non-stop weather or re-runs of MASH, Hogans Heros & Andy Griffith Show. Great choice of cinemas nearby & lots of places to eat out/take out. If booking this via Flipkey make note of other listings showing same pool to get an idea of the comings & goings during your proposed stay.

Thank you for the evaluation. Of course, we were happy to pass your compliments to our property manager. We apologize for any inconvenience you had f.e. because of the wooden floor - but the Villa Barra is our "old charming lady". We put already some carpets in the upstairs units but in a house with 5 apartmens you can´t avoid any kind of noises. Yes, as mentioned in the advertisement we offer only local TV and the pool is a shared pool. But, however just as in our other properties who has a shared pool we never had the problem of at least 20 guests around there because most of our guests use our Villa Barra as some kind of "home base" for many day trips...in the end I wanna thank you for your comments and suggestions as they are very important to us to guarantee the satisfaction of our guests today and also in the future.

“Acceptable Accmodations at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 6 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

First the good news. Although described as a studio apartment, it was relative roomy. A good sized bedroom and a large kitchen. Location was great-- close to the Edison/Ford winter estate and less than a mile from historic downtown. An old house converted into "apartments" in a quiet neighborhood. Ample parking and outside and porch sitting areas. Publix within a short walk. Bad news: an antiquated TV set up with--would you believe--rabbit ears providing an on again/off again reception and very limited channels. Main entrance accessed by a lock box set up with tiny numbers which were difficult to read, particularly at night. Could of used an extra set of sheets for a two-week stay. However, if you are not looking for luxury or upscale amenities, e.g. a pool, this may be a worthwhile alternative. People providing management support were friendly and responsive.

Thanks a lot for your thorough response. Your comments are very important to us and to our future guests. Regarding the tv we just have to say that it is the tv as shown in the pictures of the advertisment and as mentioned: we offer only local tv!
Thanks again and maybe you´ll keep us in mind for the future...
