I booked this home for my own low-key bachelorette party of around 11 ladies. The kitchen / dining room / living room was a great space for us to cook, drink, and hang out in. We also eventually figured out the bluetooth stereo and got some music going.
- big space, plenty of room to spread out
- the pool and hot tub were lovely. Super easy to heat and adjust settings (lighting!). We didnt use the sauna/steam room thingie, but it looked lovely
- big kitchen, lots of counterspace, great collecting space
- Living room couches that folded down into beds were comfy
- We heard nothing from the neighbors - we were pretty quiet, but no neighbors is always a good thing
- Really beautiful view from the back yard / pool area
- The house was not as stocked as everyone expected it to be. I'm new to VRBO so I was flexible, but some of my lady friends are very opinionated and they felt pretty indignant. Examples: we cooked our whole first meal using ONE dull, smaller-than-a-cheese knife, knife. We eventually found the full set of knives in the dishwasher. There weren't enough sheets to go around, but after emailing with Bruce and looking 3 or 4 times, we finally found the new sheet sets in the bottom of the box at the very bottom of the linen closet (happy day!). We never found more than the 5-6 bath towels around, which made showers and pool a little difficult. My friend bought Duck Dynasty towels at the store to supplement ($3.95!). The kitchen was missing some pretty standard things: cheese grater (we brought, thank god, since we made fondue), dishwasher soap (we purchased), dishtowels (we purchased), and more than 1 cutting board (we had someone else bring).
- Also it took more than 2 and a half weeks to get my sizeable deposit back. This might be standard processing time, but it felt like a long time to me.
Bruce was communicative throughout the booking process, answering my questions and sending the detailed rental agreement.
I'd recommend this house for anyone looking for a getaway with a beautiful view and some lovely pool/spa amenities.
