Naast de pretparken kent Florida ook veel natuurparken. Het zal u verbazen hoe mooi de natuur in deze fun en sunshine state is. Van natuurlijke stranden, mangroves en moerassen tot bossen, meren en watervallen.
The Ivey House is clean and simple. Staff are courteous. They have a laundry room where you can wash and dry your clothes but no drop-off & pick-up-later service. Their breakfast buffet is pretty standard. They have a gift shop but it does not include things you might need, such as bandaids or a snack.
I have stayed at the Ivey House 3 or 4 times and always enjoyed our stay but this 3 night stay was disappointing.. Having sympathy since they got hit by Hurricane Irma 5 months before I was expecting things to be not so perfect. My first complaint was the breakfast which I always raved out to others was sub-par. The fruit (watermelon and orange slices only) was limited and the watermelon was tasteless. The eggs were terrible. My second complaint was that after making a reservation for 3 nights they insisted we check out of our room on the third day because they overbooked(luckily I had a copy of our email confirmation and I refused to leave!). If the manager had offered another room somewhere else or compensation for a dinner we would have left but nothing from the manager just insistence that I leave. She was rude and very unprofessional. I'm hoping things will improve...
"Cancelled our reservation without telling us and have not refunded deposit."
I booked a room 11 months in advance for our Everglades vacation. Evidently Ivey House suffered hurricane damage and cancelled our reservation but failed to inform us of the cancellation and never refunded our $226 deposit. We learned this at check-in. They turned us away and made no effort to find us a room elsewhere or to buy us dinner or compensate us in any way. We were told we could use their free Wi-Fi to find our own lodgings. Had to travel 2 hours to Homestead for a room that night. I had even emailed them a week before our trip asking a question about whether the room had a hair dryer and they emailed back and told me yes they had hair dryers. That would have been a good time for them to mention there was no room for a hairdryer to be in. Very unprofessional!
"With a few fixes, this could be a good place"
Really wanted to love this place, but it fell short in a few areas. Our room was spacious and clean. Saw a few tiny ants in bathroom and in the Ivey House notebook. But they are clearly cutting corners. And for the price we paid, only a few dollars less than the luxurious B and B we stayed at in St. Augustine, it was a disappointment. Breakfast was ok. There were a few hot offerings...potatoes, sausages. They could have gone the extra step and put out a microwaved omelette like they do at other hotels. Watermelon served both days was kind of soggy. Caulking around bathroom sink was badly peeling. Front desk guy was not particularly friendly when we checked in, and he handed us over to a young lady, who did the deed. I think they can get away with less than stellar accommodations at these rates because there are slim pickings in Everglades City. The screen-enclosed swimming pool, which we didn't use because of chilly weather, seemed nice and clean. There are too many rules and regulations posted around...not very friendly.
"Excellent location for visiting the Western Everglades"
I've stayed at Ivey House several times (always in January) because it is convenient for the Western Everglades and you can walk to restaurants and attractions nearby. Breakfasts are good and they will provide a tasty packed lunch (sandwich, snacks, fruit, drink). This time, I tried kayaking for the first time ever (I'm in my 70s!). The "Kayak into a New Day" tour started at 7:30 and lasted 4 hours, with 3 hours on the water. It was easy and it was fun - we saw alligators and terrapin on the riverbank, trees, plants and birds above us - and all in the clear, early morning light. DJ was a good teacher and informative guide.
