A good location to visit Mesa Verde

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We read the previous review and we have to admit we agree with some of their points of view, although not with all of them.
The house was very easy to find and we were happy we had a covered parking at the back of the garden.
Inside, the house was very clean, except for the fridge and the small cupboard in the bathroom..
There was only AC in the laundry room. We turned it on once. It made a lot of noise.
We have to admit the beds were a bit smal.
The location was very good to visit Mesa Verde. There was also a supermarket nearby.
I would recommend to put a new brochure in the living room, since it was all wet and you could hardly read the words on some pages.

Mixed Review for House in Cortez

  • 2 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 22, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
We were excited to arrive at the house in Cortez, as the reviews were positive and the description and pictures matched our needs. However, upon our arrival, our excitement faded away. The start was a bit rocky, as I had paid the balance the same evening I received the PayPal invoice. The directions were to follow. I did not receive them via email, until we had all ready left for vacation. (I emailed the owner to tell her I had not received the directions, and she said she sent them, and then sent them out again to me.) In any case, we were able to find the house without much effort.

The good:
When we arrived the entire house was very clean. It was well equipped to cook great meals, wash clothes, and relax. The location was great for going to Mesa Verde and exploring the Four Corners region.

The not so good:
The listing says AC: plus fans. To us that meant that the house had AC and fans. However, much to our chagrin (i.e. after hiking at Arches when it was 106), the house had no AC. If we had known the house did NOT have AC, we would not have stayed there. We wanted a nice, cool retreat at the end of a long day of hiking. Inside, it was 87+.

Although the house was centrally located, the neighborhood was not ideal; it was a bit dicey. At 3;49 a.m., we awoke to violent and desperate screaming. "No, no, no. Stop! Don't!" This desperate screaming went on for a considerable amount of time, and we contemplated calling the police. It was terrifying, as the screams and disagreement was outside the window, facing the street. When I am on vacation, I want to stay in a nice, safe area. In addition to the altercation we heard, the neighborhood is not a place I would be comfortable staying.

Finally, we decided to stay in the house because it had three separate beds, and there were three people in our party. The two twin beds were the most uncomfortable beds we've ever slept on. Not only were they uncomfortable, but they seemed smaller than a standard twin, as one of the individuals sleeping on it, sleeps in a twin bed every night. We are only about five feet tall, and the beds were not quite large enough for us. Add the small size to the discomfort of the mattress, the incessant whirring of the ceiling fan, and the altercation outside, it was amazing we got any sleep.
Owner's Response: After three years of stellar reviews left by all the lovely, appreciative folks having stayed at this house I was appalled to receive such negative, degrading comments as these were. There are no perfect or honest records that can truly be ruined unless others choose to accept the one "rotten apple" as the truth of the whole. Life is good, regardless of how the news may report otherwise. Thank you, nonetheless for having chosen this house as a home base from which to go out and experience the beauty and grace of the Southwest.

The house was nice and the garden was beautiful.
Owner's Response: Thank you, for your brief description of your stay. Yes, the deck on which to enjoy the garden is surely the place to be most enjoyed.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.

Very quiet, comfortable

Much, much better than a hotel. My husband and I only stayed two nights but were extremely comfortable there. This is not a new house. The hardwood floors sqeak and the swamp cooler is in the third bedroom and can just about blow you away, but it kept the whole house cool. The house is small by today's standards, but it was more than adequate for our short stay. The owner was very generous with pantry items and little things a traveller would not have in a suitcase. There were seasonings in the cupboard, plastic bags, laundry soap, and many bathroom items you would find in your own bathroom but not in a hotel. The house is indeed a little quirky but a great home away from home for a couple or small family.

Owner's Response: Thank you, for your delightful review. Yes, so much better than a hotel.
A vacation rental is given the warmth of having been lived in, creating those quirks and squeaks by those having gone before. Each person, each family bringing a little of their lives to add to the shine of the floors.
A house is not a "home" until life has been brought into it. Thank you, for having added yours.
