I have left a full detailed review of this property at HomeAway rental site. but would like to expand on further details. This house is not a property that is rental ready by any means, when you have to clean out drawers and clean before unpacking, vacuum, clean the oven, empty the nasty 2 month old ice in the freezer, find the towels you need to use, and finding in every bathroom even the kitchen used old tooth brushes, nope not!. The upkeep of the property is also in need of some TLC, weeds everywhere, lawn not cut, dock falling down held up by CBS, Hot tub not hot, never did get hot,,,, first night we lost lights, heat, and second day no hot water..... right cold showers everyone! when it was 50 degrees!,,,, the smell of propane/ gas coming out of the garage was enough to kill you or blow us up......! oh and the best part is your on candid camera!!!!!! audio and video inside the house.. yup did not read that in the listing! further the owner has decided to make the A/C-Heat a smart control unit, where they feel they can monitor it as needed,.not in the description either! If you can not sense it was not a great experience for the rate charged, then you should absolutely pay the money and see for yourself..... now they have it renting for even more. wow.....oh and if you need the caretaker to come out as we did get ready because, he point blank told us He did not care about the issues, and if we had a problem with them he was just going to leave! so we did manage to make it through the week, although I kept wondering why every time I took a shower my feet were black!,,,,, well I figured it out,,,,, black shower floor hides mold and dirt,,,, yup you guessed it,,,, filthy and moldy, how do I know? because we cleaned the house from top to bottom before we left!!!!!!! and the amount of grime and dirt I got out of that shower has been there for quite some time....I would highly suggest they hire an new cleaning women! oh yes speaking of, I had emailed the owner the day before leaving asking if it would be ok to leave at noon instead of 10am, she said no problem,,, well the cleaning woman shows up at 11am, and starts to argue with me about the fact we should be gone! when I explained we were leaving with consent from the owners at noon,,, she still argued... lord !!!!!! So in ending, when we left at 11:30am a half hour early, I text the owners asking when we would get our security deposit back, 10 days was the answer, it took 18 with alot of pushin
Owner's Response: Wow, this is a difficult review to respond to. We have owned this property for a few years and it's been fully booked every summer with no complaints. The only way we can respond to this review is by saying it's completely filled with exaggerated miss truths. It's unfortunate that this renter did not mention these problems during her stay rather choose the internet to bash our beautiful property. We should mention, this renter stayed during the month of May at a deeply discounted rate and the weather was not optimal.
After this review was posted, we did receive a number of phone calls from summer 2013 reserved renters. This is feedback we received after one of their vacation weeks:
"Thank you for allowing to stay in your home. We enjoyed it very much and it certainly exceeded our expectations. We hope to have the opportunity to stay there again in the future. Also, if there is a way for us to leave you a positive review on any sites you have posted the rental, please let me know and I will certainly do that." C.G. Aug 2013
We would be more than happy to directly speak with you regarding our property, it's location and amenities. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
