Everything We Expected and More

  • 5 of 5
First off, the owners were incredibly responsive during the reservation process and super nice. The house was great, very clean, and it was obvious that the owners considered this place another home, as there was obvious care taken in furnishing and maintaining it. The kitchen had everything you could think of, even a convection oven - we cooked several meals there.

We have a dog and the house was super pet friendly - there were even dog dishes (though we brought our own). The dog run is nice and big and all you have to do is open a door from the screened in porch and let your pup loose.

There were only 2 of us (and the pup), but there was plenty of room for many more.

We spent a lot of time outside roasting marshmallows around the gas fire pit. That was probably our favorite part of the house.

Bryce itself is a great little quiet resort tucked away in its own little valley. I spent most of my childhood summers there and it was really nice getting back. A lot has changed since over the years, but the important things are very much the same. Its just a great place to take in the outdoors and chill and it made for a perfect weekend.

I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone. You won't be disappointed.

Sub-Par

  • 2 of 5
I have a mixed review, but mostly negative due to the customer service experience.

The positives. The cabin itself was as described and comfortable to stay in, clean and well-maintained, as well as well-stocked with what you need. The location is about an hour away from Skyline Drive, which wasn't too bad but also not a quick hop over. The owner also allowed us a late check-out per our request, which she honored.

The negatives. Prior to arriving, she called 2x to make sure we arrived on-time, which might be seen to some as good customer service but to us, it was overbearing. When we arrived at the house, we saw multiple signs with directions and instructions about what not to touch, what not to move, how to clean, etc. That was very unwelcoming and overbearing; every time you opened a cabinet to take out a glass, you were confronted with a "Do Not Touch! Owner's item!" sign. (Why do you have 'owners items' that are not to touch in a rental property?). Lastly, our check-out experience was very rude. We were running a bit late (because we wanted to ensure a thorough cleaning job) and about 15 minutes after our checkout time, I started getting phone calls and texts asking when we were leaving, telling me the cleaning people were waiting, etc. It was all too suffocating. We departed 25 minutes after checkout. After we left, the owner started texting me saying we didn't clean out the fireplace ashes, and asking me if I knew where item X was or item Z was and if we could check if someone packed a washcloth by accident.... Very rude. For a washcloth?! Really? After all that, she emailed me saying that since we checked out late we should pay the cleaning crew extra money since they had to wait 25 minutes. She asked for more than I thought was reasonable, and I agreed to a reasonable amount, to which she never replied. When I got my deposit check back, she had deducted the full amount she asked for from my deposit ... without discussing it with me and without my permission. I felt this was very unprofessional. If you have that much contact when YOU need something, then you need to maintain that much contact when the other party needs something. That is not good customer service.

Bottom Line: Not a nice enough property or location to deal with the hassle. I would not recommend.

Owner's Response: We work hard to ensure that our guests have a good experience at Woodside. But sometimes the people to whom you make the most generous accommodations are the ones who complain – and that seems to be the case here.

Most importantly, the guests who wrote this review did not depart 25 minutes late; they departed six hours and 25 minutes after checkout time. As mentioned in the review, we provided the renters with a six hour delayed checkout at no cost. This added considerably to our time pressure because new guests were arriving that same evening – it was very important to start the cleaning process at 4:00PM. In short, despite a free 6 hour extension, the guests still could not get out in time even though they knew the cleaning staff was waiting and were indeed under considerable time pressure.

It is our policy to check that guests have arrived safely and to make sure all is in order – this is the first time the follow-up was not appreciated.

There are indeed signs around the house to clarify the proper switches for lights and fans, how to operate the TV/video, music, and gas fireplace systems, and such. These evolved to make our guests’ stays easier and more pleasant. Because our family occasionally uses Woodside, there are three small upper shelves in the kitchen and one in the master bedroom for personal items. It is very common for rental properties to contain “owner’s closets” or other areas where personal property is segregated – this is the first time anyone has raised a concern about this.

The small $50 hold-back related to out-of-pocket expenses to pay a cleaning crew that waited for half an hour, and then had an excessively dirty house to clean. Additionally, our call was not just about a wash cloth, but rather several broken and missing household items, trash throughout the house, and property strewn about. There were so many contractual violations that we would have been justified in retaining the full deposit, but we limited it to reimbursing the cleaners.

In short, this review appears to result from the fact that we gave our guests a free half day at Woodside at no cost, and we were rewarded with a violation of almost every aspect of our contract. All of our 32 reviews of Woodside have been Five Stars because we go the extra mile for our guests, many of whom are return guests - this is a testament to how seriously we take our guests' satisfaction.

Great for Weekend Getaways

  • 5 of 5
My best friends growing up and I rented this house for a weekend getaway so we could catch up, grill out, watch college football, play poker, and enjoy the outdoors. We could not have been more pleased with the accommodations. The owner was very hospitable and made sure that our stay was satisfactory, and also was extremely responsive during the process of renting the house. The house is in great shape, in fact the pictures did not do it justice in our opinion. The main living room has a great setup with access to the deck, nice TV/home theater system, foosball table, wetbar, and very comfortable wraparound leather sofa. The kitchen was spacious and accommodating so we cooked dinner in both nights and a big breakfast on Saturday morning. There is an outdoor charcoal grill on the deck and under the deck a nice outdoor seating area with an outdoor gas fire pit and ping pong table. Overall we loved our stay here and had zero complaints, and will likely book this house in the future as we plan to make this an annual tradition.

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to a clean nicely furnished and decorated house. It was just as described. Fully furnished with everything you would need, dishes, linens, books, games and so much more. Loved the living room/ TV room with all the windows, Had S'mores on the fire pit and played ping pong on the covered patio. The area around was nice and quiet and easy to get to. Recommend to anyone wanting a nice escape, for families of all ages! Looking forward to another visit again.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Three generations of my family spent a fabulous long weekend here and would definitely return. The bedrooms and living areas were comfortable and gave us more than enough space. We especially enjoyed the screened porch and the gas fire pit. It was a last minute trip and we forgot to pack entertainments for the kids and a few kitchen supplies, but were happy to find everything we needed was already there. The kitchen in particular is very well appointed.

Thanks!

  • 5 of 5
I agree with all the good things that other reviewers have already written!
We had a great time with 4 adults, 2 teenagers, 3 children and 1 dog.
We contacted Lisa desperately after we found out that the house that we initially booked (different owner and different website) was flea infested. She responded right away and 1 hour later we had a new vacation home. Thanks!!!
