DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!

While the owner of this property is nice and tried to be accommodating, she lives way too far from this property to know what's really going on there. The house is nowhere near as nice as it sounds. It's extremely worn and dated, and marginally clean. The real inconvenience, especially for the price, is there was no paper towels, kleenex, shower or hand soap, coffee filters for the well used coffee maker, or laundry products, stuff that should be provided in a rental home. There was a huge rug rolled up in from of the washer and dryer that we had to stand on to be able to use the machines. Also, though the master was large, the other bedrooms are built in the lower level and don't have doors! Privacy is a curtain pulled across the entrance, which is large, and each has a double bed, pushed up against one wall making access available from only one side. Hard when you have 2 adults sharing a bed. The bathroom down there is TINY and certainly doen't accommodate all the people this add says it does, unless you're college students! It's also "in" one of the bedrooms. The other area has a pull out couch that is uncomfortable, and we had to hunt for the sheets, blanket and pillows because they were not where it said they would be. Good thing one couple cancelled at the last minuted. Also, the hot tub was filthy, even though it was supposed to have been clearned before we got there. With all the beautiful homes available in this area, we picked a loser. No wonder it was the last one available. Unless you're traveling with a bunch of kids, don't waste your money.

Owner's Response: Perhaps this is not the best choice for elderly people. It is contemporary and going up and down steps may be difficult for those too old navigate stairs. We certainly understand that older people would not be comfortable on a pull out sofa. Due to this guest's premature arrival in violation of the reservation agreement, it dissrupted the cleaning crew's normal routine. As the house had been rented the night before, there were only a few hours to prepare for the next guest. When this party arrived prematurely it startled the crew, so the cleaning ladies rushed out of the house without disbersing the supplies throughout the house and finishing as they normally do. The soap, shampoo, etc. were in boxes in the laundry room closet. The coffee pot has a built in strainer and does not require filters. The newly purchased linens were in the linen closet. I find it amusing that that they used the hot tub that had been completely drained and professionally cleaned the day prior to their arrival before complaining that it was filthy and wanted a refund. The bathroom downstairs is not huge, but it has both a full bathtub and a walk in shower. He was right about one thing, someone had left an Oriental rug in the laundry room and it did make it difficult to use the washer and dryer. If we had known about this we would have had it removed during their stay. It has since been removed. We were disappointed that they did not enjoy the home as much as most of our guests do.
