When you’re enjoying the great outdoors, mosquito repellent is not something you want to leave to chance. Sprays and citronella candles can only do so much — especially when you’re dining al fresco. But savvy shoppers have found the perfect solution to keep bugs at bay in the backyard: the Alvantor Screen House Room. It comes in four sizes starting at $120 — a small price to pay for a bug-free summer!
You can get one of these summer savers shipped to you for free if you have Amazon Prime, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Rave reviewers say this gazebo delivers on its promise to block mosquitoes. It's designed with panels made of mosquito netting which allows you to be outside without being vulnerable to bugs.
“I needed a screened in portable tent to put in my small sitting area,” a rave reviewer wrote. “The bugs used to chase us away. Now I can pop this tent up and enjoy our summer drinks and relax without annoying bugs. I fold it up when I'm done so I don't have to worry about it being blown away or dirtied from storms. I'm a senior and it is so easy and lightweight.”
Shoppers love how easy the tent is to set up. The smaller tents only need one person to pop it out. The tent opens automatically and is easy to fold up when you're finished.
“I didn't have to put it together. It unfolded and PRESTO! I had a tent,” a savvy shopper shared. “My three seater swing had end tables that are attached and I still have plenty of room! I just turn my fans on and now the mosquitos will have to work to get me!”
“I absolutely love this,” wrote a happy camper. “It popped right up straight out of the bag. I didn’t even use the ropes to secure the sides I only tied down the bottom and used sand bags to secure it. It was windy the other day and it didn’t even move. I strung solar lights inside and put an outdoor rug underneath. It’s my outside oasis free of bugs. It can easily be moved if I ever need to. I bought the smallest one and there is a ton of room inside for us and the dogs.”
Shoppers say the tent is very sturdy — it's held up with fiberglass "ribs" — but it also comes with sandbags (you have fills those yourself) to help it stay put. However, the manufacturer does not recommend using the gazebo when the wind speed reaches 24 miles an hour or more.
“I'm writing this review from inside my new screen room, and I am loving it so far!” an excited shopper shared. “It was extremely easy to set up; it feels quite sturdy on its own (I also filled the 7 included sand bags, and now it really feels like it's not going anywhere). The mesh is fine enough to keep bugs out while still allowing a nice breeze through. It's pretty much just what I was looking for. Now I can enjoy my back porch without being hassled by bugs!”
Now that we're socializing a bit more, our parties can expand. Of course, keeping your guests protected is a top priority and shoppers say their guests approve of the Alvantor Screen House Room.
"This tent served as our food/buffet house was the highlight of our get together last night," wrote an enthusiastic entertainer. "Everyone said it was so pretty and definitely served its purpose. Kept the bugs out."
