ENJOYED OUR STAY AT THE BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
The property is private, quiet, spacious, and well maintained. We spent most of our afternoons in the pool. The owners were very welcoming and responsive to questions even though they were abroad at the time of our stay. We had a lot fun visiting Woodstock and other nearby towns. Overall, we had a great time and will consider staying at this property again.

THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE TRULY AWFUL

  • 1 of 5
The Good:

1. The house is clean, modern and well-maintained.
2. The kitchen is well-equipped.
3. The property is private and attractive.


The Bad:

1. The property is infested with mosquitoes. They die in large numbers in the pool. My son and I couldn’t play catch on the lawn without getting bitten up. Be prepared to slather yourself in bug spray.

2. Despite the private setting, you can still hear the neighbors. A party down the hill blared music from their speakers late into Saturday night.

3. The décor is suffocatingly urban hipster chic. If you’re into that, you’re in luck. I found it precious, cold and antiseptic.


The Truly Awful:

Shortly after we arrived for our week-long stay, we discovered a pair of iZon monitors - designed to connect remotely with an iPhone or iPad- inside the house. They were strategically positioned to take in the kitchen/living room and the stairwell leading up to the 2nd floor bedrooms. Never disclosed by the owners and not mentioned in our lease. They are noticeably absent from the listing photos.

We should have left immediately, but my wife got spooked and didn't want to make waves. Plus, I was afraid of losing our pre-paid rent and security deposit if we left. I blocked the monitors' view of the living space and we did our best to ignore them. But we remained very uneasy for the remainder of the week.

After we got home, I emailed the owners that we were deeply troubled by the presence of video monitors and wanted to understand their purpose. The owners sent a curt, unapologetic, and dismissive email reply. Monitors were present inside the house, they wrote, because the house was frequently unoccupied. And if I was so “deeply troubled” (they condescendingly put my phrase in quotations), I should have said something earlier.

Aside from their rudeness, it’s impossible to know whether the owners are only using the monitors when the house is unoccupied. The owners could easily be using the monitors to observe and record their renters. It's acceptable to put surveillance cameras outside a rental property to catch break-ins; it's outrageous to place them inside a rental property, where renters have a reasonable expectation of privacy. In fact, it’s illegal in many states.


Bottom Line:

Unless you are willing to blindly trust that the owners are not spying on and recording you, I would strongly advise you and any prospective renter to stay far away from this listing.

Owner's Response: It's disappointing to hear someone hasn't enjoyed their stay at our house. Unfortunately Mosquitos have good and bad years and months. This August seems to have been particularly bad but we had pre warned all of our guests about this summer in my welcome email. Over the years we've never experienced many around in the garden or pool, other than at dusk - we also have screens on every door and window and several bug catchers around the garden for people to turn on if needed.

In the six years we have owned the house, we have only heard the camp site (which is over a mile away) a couple of times. Even then, it's only been a distant sound, only audible from the garden. A random camp site party is unfortunate and unavoidable, and it's certainly not every night or weekend.

You can see clearly from our photos the decor and style of the house. You either like it or not.

The 2 security cameras at the property are only on during periods of time when the house is unattended. We have no interest in looking at our renters. If the guests had mentioned the cameras during their stay we could have set their minds at peace, but unfortunately they didn't mention it till after their stay when we had to contact them about the damage they had done to the property. We're sad that it ruined their stay especially as we could've easily put it right when they were there.

We have decided to completely remove the cameras during the times when people are renting the house to avoid this kind of confusion or upset in the future.

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the house! It was more than spacious enough for four adults and generally close to everything we wanted - HITS and restaurants. Would love to come back again and hope the pool will be open next time!

OUTSTANDING PROPERTY AND VERY WELL TAKEN CARE OF....

  • 5 of 5
I am writing this review on behalf of my boss who stayed there with his family from June 7-June 10th. He was very impressed with the house and said in a nutshell - the place is OUTSTANDING! He was very happy with the layout and so was his wife. She said it was airy and the open layout was a major plus as they have 3 girls. They loved the house so much they asked me to book it two more times in July but unfortunately it is already booked! In any event, I had the pleasure of interacting with the owner and she is great. Very responsive and welcoming to her home. You can tell she loves that house and it shows by how well they take care of it. I would highly recommend this place :)

A SERENE MODERN RETREAT IN THE COUNTRY

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at this property in August and to sum it up it was a wonderful experience that exceeded our expectations in every way - we cannot recommend it enough. We liked it so much we went house shopping in the area and are now going to be the owners' neighbors! (hence the long delay in writing this review...) We looked at about eight summer rentals before deciding on this one and what was so appealing to us was its modern Dwell-style architecture, its immaculate condition and the care the owners have put into decorating and furnishing their home. There isn't a single thing that they haven't thought of, and I don't just mean in their attention to detail but also in thinking of what might be confusing to someone new to their home. They are tremendous hosts, and I say that as someone not prone to exaggeration. Absolutely the only reason I can think of that someone wouldn't want to rent this home is if they don't like the modern open style. It is hard to explain in a short review all the features of the house but some of the biggies- The pool is one the nicest designs we have seen and is fully featured and of course basically brand new. The stone patio and deck are wonderful outdoor spaces, and fenced it for those of you with small children. The property has several "destinations" including a treehouse, the stream and a small field, with the driveway serving as your trail. The home sits at the end of a private drive so there is a strong sense of seclusion. The decoration of the house is whimsical and colorful, yet still respectful of the setting. All the furnishings are modern and well maintained and in pristine clean condition. Everything you would need is on hand, down to a speaker for the outdoor area and coffee for the coffee maker. Most importantly, the owners have created an instruction book which thoughtfully answer any question that might come to mind. I have traveled a lot and stayed at some really nice places - I can confidently say that this property is to the highest of standards. We felt very lucky that the owners were willing to rent their property to us and if you are also lucky enough please do take care of it.

PERFECT VACATION PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
The home is beautiful and extremely comfortable, clean and well-maintained and the pool is spectacular. The owners have truly thought of everything, making the home and property the perfect vacation get-away with or without children. We particularly enjoyed details like the umbrella in the shallow end of the spa (making it a perfect kiddie pool when the heater is off), the blackout shades in the kids bedroom (perfect for a middle of the day nap), the fire-pit for roasting marshmallows at night, the well-stocked kitchen (cookware, dinnerware, spices, etc.), the very clean and easy to use gas grill, the garden (complete with gnome), the hammock pool-side and the creek and tree-house on the property. The home is ideally situated between the towns of Woodstock and Saugerties, so there are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. We would definitely rent this property again and recommend it to friends and family.
