While both the views from the back and the house itself are very beautiful, the poor management makes this place not worth your time and aggravation. You would be much better off renting from someone else, or going through a rental agency that offers a better contract for your protection.
Upon checking in the house was found to be very clean, but temps were very frigid. This is due to the fact that the heat was set so low, with notes instructing to keep temps at a certain number. Thank god for the fireplace!! The ad says the owner will supply you with toilet paper, trash bags, towels, etc. BRING YOUR OWN, there is no where near enough. You may also wish to bring some AA batteries seeing as all of the remote controls for the TV, DVD players did not have any. The pool table is missing the cue and the eight ball so bring your own if you want to shoot pool.
The moment you check in I would go through the entire house and make a detailed list of anything you find to not be working and notify the owner right away. If you don't you WILL end up paying for it with your security deposit. Even though the contract clearly states that normal wear and tear are covered, that does not seem to be the case. Just imagine if the hot tub were to have an issue during you stay. Could get very pricey.
I never had the feeling of being relaxed in the rental unit. The amount of post it notes all over telling us to "do not use" makes you feel as if you are invading the owners personal space. I have never experienced anything like that before in rentals in the past. It seems to me that the owner is on edge about renting this place out. Does not make for a good situation.
The bottom line is that management make this place that is truly amazing non rentable in my opinion. I would pass on this unit. Notice how many reviews are left on this unit compared to a lot of the other units in the area. You will do much better elsewhere. I must say that this was the worst experience I personally had in a rental home.
Owner's Response: It disheartens me your vacation experience, at my home, did not meet your expectations.
Thank you for your input, I provided the recommended supplies. I will add extra.
The Post-It's, again were recommended to assist in the use of the house.
The contract states, the renter will be liable for damages.
It is nice to know you enjoyed the amenities of my home.
May every vacationer have a wonderful experience!
