Cat smell and obnoxious neighbors tainted our stay
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
My first impression of Brookhaven was the cat pee smell as I entered the door. Initially I thought that it was due to the home being locked up for a while, but as the day went on, and I sat in the chairs and couch, I was hit with the odor even more intensely. There was cat fur and cat smell, which, if a renter has allergies to cat, he or she would be miserable for the entire stay. The smell never went away or got better during our 7 day stay even though we had all the doors and windows open all the time. The lack of privacy due to the rental units nearby on property was disconcerting. I did not enjoy hearing other's conversations or have people cut through the front of our cottage on their way to their friend's rental. Also, bring swimmer's itch preventative. Our whole family got it really bad. Other than the smell, lack of privacy and swimmer's itch, we thought the home was well appointed, roomy, and beautifully landscaped. The owners put a lot of thought into this home and it shows. Our family would recommend this home to other renters, but with a strong warning of the mentioned issues.
