A Wonderful Family Week

We just returned from a wonderful family week at this beautiful home. We were so glad that we found this home, because there were 6 married couples (us and our 5 married children), our teenage son, and our 5 grandchildren age 3 and under and this house was perfect for us. We were able to sit all 13 adults and children around the table for meals (with 3 high chairs). The kitchen was fully equipped which we appreciated because we ate all of our meals there. I was worried after a couple of the "negative" reviews, but everything was wonderful -- the house and pool were spotless, and the air conditioning and DVD player weren't hard to figure out. We used everything that the house provided over and over, from playing ping pong to the pool table to the hot tub to the pool itself. Our grandchildren played on the lawn and caught crickets there. Not mentioned in the ad is that there is a fire pit in the backyard, and we built a fire and roasted marshmallows a couple of evenings which the kids loved. The air conditioning was a little uneven, with some bedrooms a little warm, and others a little cool, but it wasn't too bad. We used every bedroom and bathroom in the house, and they were all great in terms of cleanliness and space for all of us. One side note -- the first night in the middle of the night, there was a defective smoke alarm which went off and set off all of the others in the house. We were able to disconnect them, but called the maintenance guy that Kristie gave me the number for. He came over immediately (in the middle of the night) and checked everything out and made certain that we were all safe. He sent out an electrician and air conditioning person the next day to fix it, and they couldn't have been nicer or more professional, and we didn't have any trouble the rest of the time. You might think that this is a negative, but I was really impressed by how responsible the owners were in fixing a problem immediately (and they couldn't have known that the problem was going to occur, so we didn't blame them). This was a wonderful house to rent, and were glad that we came together here for the week.
