LOVELY HOME

  • 5 of 5
Many thanks! We had a wonderful, short stay (2 days). On our second day after relaxing a bit, we all wanted to stay through the week. This home is relaxing and homey. There were eight of us and we all had ample room to get around in the kitchen which is perfect for entertaining or hanging out. Two days was definitely not enough for us to enjoy the home and surroundings. This house sits high enough to get a spectular view of the bay where we spent a lot of time gazing out at the scene. Will plan on going again for a longer stay. I have already recommended this home to others. The owner was very nice to accomodate our early arrival from Oregon, which was a great help since we were attending a wedding in the area.

BACKYARD WEDDING

  • 4 of 5
We recently hosted a wedding reception at this house. It was perfect for a gathering of 55 friends and family. The balcony overlooking the pacific views is great! The yard was decent size to accommodate tables and chairs. We used the patio as our dance floor. The only tricky design element is the living and kitchen area is upstairs. We made it work good exercise!
Overall the stay was fabulous the rooms and the living areas all had just the right touch. Loved the giant kitchen perfect for displaying a buffet and cocktails. Thanks again Linda for agreeing to let us host our memorable wedding here! What a treat!

AMAZING HOUSE AND MAGICAL WEEK ON THE COAST

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this house with my family for 7 days and it couldn't have been a more perfect stay. The house is perched up on a little hill that had sprawling views of the ocean. At sunset the light that comes in can only be described as magical and the glow made all of us glow! The house had more than enough room for all of us to be comfortable and the kitchen and dining room is wide open, which made cooking together unbelievable. The owners were timely with their responses and helpful about information about the local area. We created so many great memories here and we will for sure be coming back!

DISAPPOINTING TO SAY THE LEAST

  • 2 of 5
Although showing some wear and tear, the overall condition of the house was ok but the housekeeping & yard maintenance left much to be desired. The odor in the entire upstairs area was nauseating! In hopes of finding the cause of the odor, a used prophylactic and wrapper were found under the dresser in the master bedroom. There was also quite a bit of different types of hair under all of the bedroom furniture. Homeowner vehemently denied an odor existed but their carpet specialist sent to inspect the upstairs carpets agreed with us and determined it was due to the previous renter's dog. Treatment of carpet improved but did not eliminate odor in master. Carpet specialist's attempt to remove odor left carpet in master wet enough to soak our socks for our final 2 days. Coffee and grounds left in coffee maker. None of the bathroom door locks worked. Although yard maintenance occurred the morning of our arrival, there was dog excrement on lawn in multiple places. The ratty patio furniture cushions had burn holes and tears and looked unusable. There were cobwebs on the interior and exterior that we felt needed attention. Not what we consider a model of luxury. In the end, a small refund was given to us which we feel did not begin to make up for the inconveniences we had to deal with.

Owner's Response: This guest reserved our home for 4 days. It wasnt until two days after this guest checked-in that we received an email regarding an odor. The following morning, we dispatched our carpet specialist to the home to eliminate the odor. The solution that was used was a "green" chemical, there was no water used. The odor was removed and to guarantee fresh air, an ioniizer was setup, it was quiet and out of the way. The complaints continued of "wet socks", which was impossible, as there was no water used. I also found the ionizer, unplugged.

The guest initially described our yard and landscaping as "lovely", but her review complains of poor landscaping, furniture and dog excrement. The gardeners cleaned & manicured the yard on the day she checked-in, so had there been any excrement, it would have been removed by the gardeners. The guest also complained about our patio furniture, however she broke a table and did not report it to me, I found the broken pieces.

The bathroom locks work, and the remaining complaints make no sense to me, I heard of them as I read this review, her visit took place nearly 2 months ago. I can't address a complaint if I don't know about it.

We perform a thorough walk through of the home prior to check-in and are proud to turn the home over to our guests.

It is difficult for us to understand the extreme negativity of this review as the home is exactly as it is portrayed on our site. Every picture and written description is exactly what is found upon arrival at the home.

I believe this guest confused the amenities of a 5 star resort with a vacation rental home.

It is a beautiful home and we are proud of the fact that almost all of our guests are extremely happy with the home.

I applied a $250 credit to her 1st night's stay and mailed a check to her for an additional $300, I believe this was more than fair.

Finally, it is our goal to have happy guests, but it is important to note here, as an owner, that if there are issues found in our home. we must be notified immediatey. There are occasionally unforseen issues that arise, but resolving issues with as little disruption to our guests and their visit is our #1 goal. Unfortunately, to first learn of negative complaints in a review long after check-out is extremely unfair.

NOT UP TO OUR EXPECTATIONS DUE TO CLEANLINESS ISSUES

  • 4 of 5
This property was not adequately cleaned prior to our arrival. For instance, the waste paper container in the master bathroom was full and there were used coffee grounds in the coffeemaker. The master bedroom had an odor and we bought some air freshener to deal with that problem (I would guess the carpets had not been cleaned very recently?). The hardwood floors in the kitchen and dining areas and stairs are in need of either deep cleaning or professional maintenance. That is a general concern I have, that is, the owner has some deferred maintenance that is needed and, if performed, would make this a much more attractive place to stay. Otherwise, we found the owner (or contact person) very helpful and the views of Half Moon Bay--esp. the sunset--from this property to be beautiful.

Owner's Response: Prior to our guest's check-in, we perform a complete and thorough walk through of the home, therefore, I disagree with this review stating "cleanliness issues". In addition, we retain a carpet/hardwood cleaning service, who takes care of our carpet & hardwood on a regular basis, to insure they are clean, at all times.

The initial inquiry from this guest, requested the cleaning fee be returned, if she were to clean the home, upon check-out. This request to clean our home, was most unusual, and a cause for concern, but I allowed the reservation to go forward anyway.

If cleanliness issues were found, I was not notified by this guest. We provide our contact information and encourage guests to contact us by cell phone/email with any concern, so they can be immediately addressed.

We had no idea this guest had "cleanliness issues" until we received this review, which causes me to question the authenticity of this guest's concern.

In a spirit of providing good customer service, this guest changed her reservation, several times, which we accommodated and we accommodated her request to check-in several hours early.

Finally, if cleanliness issues were to the extent she described, why would she rate our home a 4 out of 5, which is a nearly perfect rating.

Our goal is to turn our home over to our guests in "perfect condition", based on recent reviews, we are meeting this goal.
