This house was great for 10 people (it could have been 12 with comfort). The house was clean and the kitchen well stocked for making breakfast and dinner. The hot tub was nice to use too! We would rent this home again in the future!
This was a great place for a girls weekend away to celebrate a couple of "milestone" birthdays. There were 10 of us and there was plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen and dining room were spacious enough for a large group. The bedrooms upstairs did get a little warm, and no covers on the skylights made for some earlier than planned mornings! Also, the low bed downstairs is a little harder for "mature" people to use (great for kids though). It would also have been nice to have a table outside (we understand there usesd to be one, but it was destroyed in an earlier storm). The living room worked well for all of us to get together and catch up. Good place for a large group. We enjoyed our time in Galena!
We had a great time at the Three Gables house. The house was very nice and clean. It was spacious enough for all of us. The yard was huge the kids had a great time playing and the deck was great for all the adults to sit and visit. The Petersons were very easy to work with. Overall, it was a great weekend at a great house.
Beware! We have frequently rented through Home Away and VRBO in several states as well as in Galena previously. The rental this weekend was our most disappointing experience by far.
When we arrived, it became clear that the hot tub had not been in a working condition for quite some time based on the green mucky water that was sitting in the bottom of the tub. We rented this place for a special occasion to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday with friends and family. We specifically selected your rental because it had a large hot tub. Owner only contacted us day before to let us know it was broken.
The kitchen was dirty when we arrived and there is an ant infestation. We had to clean the kitchen and purchase ant trap. Unfortunately, the ant traps were insufficient for the infestation and we had to battle ants all weekend. The house also had many other bugs including earwigs which got into clothes hanging in the closet.
The patio did not have a table as featured in the photos which impacted our plans to dine outside. There were not enough chairs for 8 adults to sit on the patio. The patio furniture was filthy and we had to clean it before being able to sit.
The patio has a hornet's somewhere which meant we had to contend with 3-5 hornets when we did sit outside. Given the ant and hornet spray under the kitchen sink, I am guessing that you may already be aware of these conditions.
The bathroom on the main floor has a horrible stench coming from it. I do not know if anyoone has reported this, but it smells like a mouse or something died in the wall.
Here are some of the other problems we encountered:
- Several of the blinds are in bad shape and do not function
- 1 small kitchen garbage bag provided for the entire weekend
- 1/2 a roll of paper towels (we had to buy this basic that is usually provided with rentals)
- no kleenex in bathrooms (we had to buy this basic that is usually provided with rentals)
- no garbage cans in several bathrooms
- insufficient towel racks to hang 2 wet towels in bathrooms
- No salt shaker (we had to go buy this basic that is usually provided with rentals)
- Stained towels and stained bed linens - gross orange stains on towels and pillow cases
- No pool towels provided
We paid for a deluxe home for a long weekend rental that had many unacceptable, easily addressable issues. The cleaning fee seems insulting given that we had to spend time ourselves when we arrived to clean
A couple days prior to arrival we were informed that the hot tub at the property was broken and would not be fixed by the time we got there. Initially we thought the gentleman was very pleasant and willing to work with us given the fact that it was an inconvenience. When we got to the property, the broken hot tub was not covered, full of nasty green water and was clearly a nest for mosquitos. Yuck! To top it all off, in the main room there are a few glass tables with sharp edges. We ended up taking the glass out immediately so that our children didn't hurt themselves after having a very close call. We carefully placed it in the closet off of the room. Completely my fault I forgot to place the glass back before I left. Two days later I received an unwarranted accusation from the owner very sarcastically stating "looks to me like you had a really good time huh?" I responded by saying " Yes, we did thank you" He then says, sarcastically of course, " No you had a reeeaaaally good time" I finally caught on and said, "excuse me?" He says " Well you shattered the glass in all my tables" He didn't take the time to ask how our stay was or what had actually happened. He was not concerned that those tables are unsafe for children. We were willing to say not the best, but the stay was ok. But after being treated like that we would never rent from them again. Hope this give you some insight as to who they really are.
