“Owner keeps security deposit, lies of condition and then lies in his responses”
Reviewed 4 December 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Kazi Ahmed/owner has still NOT returned our security deposit. As directed in the reservation instructions sent to us, we mailed our security deposit check for $799.38 made out White Ibis Inn, LLC and mailed it to the address he provided (125 Colson Dr-which is the property address) and NOT to the booking company (VR Connect). We checked out on time; took our trash (as well as the already filled trash cans when we checked in) to the curb; cleaned our dishes and picked up cigarette butts from his workers (bobcat crew) to ensure we would get our full deposit back.

The property was NOT ready at check-in (4PM on 10/19/2017). Following the hurricane we checked the status of our reservation. The Owner replied that the property was in perfect condition (even says this on their main website). However, even at 8PM Mr Ahmed and his staff were still stocking rooms, making beds and cleaning while we waited on the balcony/porch. We were the first to stay following the hurricane.

During our stay the Cable Co had yet to restore services so no TV, Internet or Phone. The Stereo did not work; none of the irons worked; no ironing board (we needed them to get ready for a wedding ceremony); coffee maker did not work. Rodent(s) in the kitchen enjoyed the can of nuts the owner provided as a welcome gift. The pool was not clean at check-in. The pool cleaning guy shows up on Saturday (10/21) and says there are two holes in the pool so there is nothing he can do. We did not get to use the pool during our stay. Smoke detector in the master bedroom was missing, the detector on the main floor started chirping. The caretaker was asked for a battery and we were told he would just replace the unit (he never did). The A/C in the main floor (yellow) bedroom was missing (had not been replaced from being damage during hurricane) so that room was brutally hot. The A/C in the upper bedroom did not work (needed a remote to operate).

When we complained to the booking company, the owner responded with lies. He said there were more people at the property then he knew about. We have the email showing the names and ages of every person that was on the property (12 names) as required during the reservation process. He said he did not know we were bringing our dogs. Again, we have the email showing that he was informed weeks before our arrival.

Problem to the lodging industry > How to deal with scams of > "More guests stay than actually booked"!!! Here is one recent example.

Frank Gillespie and Sonia Gillespie, husband and wife from Holiday, Florida recently tried to use the same technique with White Ibis Inn, find out more and as a vacation rental owners be cautious of these kind of scams.

Here is one prime example how guest cheat and deceive White Ibis Inn from paying the correct amount when they make a reservation for an accommodation showing by less guests but later bring double or triple number by hoping no one will noticed.

I am the property owner of White Ibis Inn. The property has two houses with a total of 6 bedrooms, and can accommodate up to 14 guests. We charge a flat fee for each night with 6 guests, and $17 for each additional guest per night. We normally do not allow any dogs, but for anyone with special needs, we are willing to make an exception.

Mr. Frank and Ms. Sonia Gillespie rented our home for their daughter’s wedding for 3 nights and with 9 registered guests. They know that our house is a 2-acre large estate with a lot of privacy, and is fenced and gated. They ended up bringing nearly two dozen guests with 5 large ‘Cane Corso’ breed dogs for their daughter’s wedding, believing that it would pass unnoticed, since the property owner usually stays in Canada.

We recently experienced the Category 4 Hurricane Irma two month ago, and our property went through major devastation like every other property in the Keys, and had sustained damages. We had 10 feet of ocean water on the property, 180 mph winds that ripped off the power pole, ripped off the roofs of many houses, and no one had electricity or even cell reception for a solid month in the Keys. Our swimming pool was full of seaweed, lobsters, crabs and fish.

But through our best efforts, we were able to pull the property back to virtually normal standards and make the house ready to properly welcome the guests, Mr. and Mrs. Gillespie. Upon their arrival, we served them fresh coconut milk, almonds, and chocolate. They were happy and express their gratitude for making the house available for their daughter’s wedding. The property manager and myself also made clear to them that the house and property was not quite as perfect as it was before the storm, but if for any reasons they changed their mind, and were not happy, they were welcome to stay one night, and next day they could move to a hotel or a place where they would be more comfortable and we will refund their full money back, as we want our guest to be happy and have a good experience with White Ibis Inn.

But they stayed and enjoyed the property, and after went back home, they began to ask for a 25% discount, stating that the property was not as it was before the hurricane. Based on our CC camera, and according to the witnesses, (the house keeper, myself and the manager), we noticed they had brought 18 guests than they had paid for (they paid for 9), and in addition, they brought five dogs and left the house a big mess with trash. After calculating the facts in accordance with our rental agreement, it turned out that the guests owed White Ibis Inn an additional $2,300, but they deceived us in their reservation forms when they booked our property, and then began spreading malicious statements and false information on the internet, while trying to distort money.

No doubt, they do this to other homeowners as well. In their conduct, these people feel no shame and have no limit to their vile behaviors, and everyone should be aware of their names the next time that they try to take free vacation at others’ expense.

“Very good place to stay in the Keys”
Reviewed 24 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This house was perfect for our large family to stay. We used the whole property and Kazi was great to work with. We had perfect weather and we had a great time in the pool. I would recommend staying here as it's private and well placed in regard to traveling to Key West at night. Fun entertainment!

“We enjoyed our trip”
Reviewed 14 January 2017 for a stay in November 2016

Kris and Adam both of our fabulous host were fantastic! When we arrived Kris was there to welcome us and made our check-in easy, answered any questions and any issues right away.

He even shared some guava and coconuts from the wonderful trees. This home was so beautiful the a large private estate! Everything we could have possibly needed was there - cooking supplies, stocked kitchen, and more!

Nice pool also with the spa. AC if you need it but being top floor unit we just left both of the sliders open all the time for an awesome ocean breeze. Nice French doors with balconies were amazing and romantic.

Two good sized TVs, but who watches TV in Paradise? Great value for such a good spot. Owners were amazingly helpful, even when we locked ourselves out. Super clean and well appointed. Nearby there are few restaurants, specially square grouper was the best. Highly recommend.
