This house was built in 1977 with the great lake view and right on the water.
Even though it was built in 1977 some of the furniture reflects the 'retro' style from this era.
This house sits right on Lake Livingston and has a great water front view. Sleeps 10 plus. More than 10 plus would need to have owner's permission. Even though the house is on the water the pier is coming soon, the owner does offer a fishing/boat house less than a mile away that has 2 boat slips for all guest to use.
The 42 ft pier with a 16x16 platform is now complete with boat dock on the water.
This house is beyond disgusting. This house reeks of smoke and mold! There are nasty blood stains on the mattresses and boric acid around the bed rails. The carpet has to be over 20 years old and is NASTY. The ceiling is nasty and there are spider webs everywhere. Most of the smoke detectors are ripped out of the ceiling and other places have holes in the ceiling. The plumbing is horrible. You will have to plunge the toilet every time you use it. I took lots of pictures of just how disgusting this house is but the site does not have a place to post them. When you try to discuss any problems with the owner she yells and gets extremely defensive and belligerent. Stay away!
We have to spend half of our day cleaning the house before we can even use it! I spent extra $ to buy cleaning stuffs...sink is clogged during the whole stay.Carpet is nasty ! I have to buy my own table mantle before we can use the table because the one that they have is so dirty and you can see that somebody previously used it and it was not cleaned up after it was used.there is even a dead riches behind the curtain . Door have sign not to open it (broken) .I have to vacuum the carpet before use,Splash bleaches on toilets before use and bleach the very dirty floor with dirt build ups on it.You can't even use the cabinets because they have old stuffs stocked in it and it is very dusty.I can't imagine even cleaning it. Decks are full of spider webs and not to mention the shower with loose tiles on it. There's a used shaver in the shower ...looks like nobody cleaned the house after the last time it has been used ! I'm supposed to be on vacation ...I should just stayed home and clean my own house....!!! what a stress!
IT WAS VERY ROOMY FOR ALL THREE FAMILIES AND WE GOT TO SHOW UP EARLIER THEN 430PM, @11AM. THE PIER WAS VERY NICE AND LIGHTED UP AT NIGHT FOR NICE FISHING, AWESOME FIREWORKS ALL AROUND.MY WIFE JUST HAD TO CLEAN COUNTER TOPS THATS YET.BESIDES THAT HAD AN AWESOME TIME. PROBABLY WILL RENT AGAIN.
I do have to say this house is very roomy and a quiet get away, but like alot of previous reviews. Housekeeping of the house,rooms,linens, carpet,countertaps, and etc is in need of reviewing. Me and my family stayed here on the weekend of March 28th through the 30th. We all were having a good time until it was time to go to bed. When we noticed that the covers had ANIMAL HAIR all over them as well as FLEAS. This was very upsetting due to the fact it is asked that we do not wash the linen, but that housekeeping will, which is SO HARD TO BELIEVE, when you find these things. My family and I took to the livingroom with our OWN linens and campout there for the night. Also as for the pool, it was VERY DIRTY, me and my husband had to even clean out ourself before we even thought about getting in it, (((VERY DISAPPOINTING))) due to my young child was to scared to even get in. With that being said, we did leave the house IN very good clean standards,as well as adhere to all that was asked of us. However sadly WE WILL NOT BE BOOKING THIS HOUSE AGAIN.
I will state that I would rebook this property. It would be beneficial for the owner to update the website for the lack of some amenities that are listed as being available. There was NO cable service, there are NO bikes to ride on the property, and the house had not been touch-up cleaned. My sister and I spent our first 2 hours of the first day wiping down all the counter tops and flat surfaces throughout the house as there was a layer of dust on all surfaces. There are extreme cobwebs coming out of all AC ceiling vents in the family room and the slanted wall in the kitchen above the cabinets with popcorn texture as an abundance of dust bunnies. We did have my 6 foot soon remove several cobwebs hanging from the ceiling as we were afraid they would fall into food or drinks. I am not a neat-freak, as I have 4 children, but if the property description states the property is cleaned by someone after a visit and prior to arrival if no one as visited the property (from appearances no one had been to the property in several weeks), then as the owner I would be questioning the very people I pay to perform that job as it is not being done at all.
After the clean-up, we did enjoy a relaxing time of quiet and peacefulness on the water. We did survive without cable but the owner does need to be aware that only one of the DVD players works and the remote is missing for the large tube TV.
Home was very roomy and well stocked but had cobwebs everywhere and very dusty. Neither one of the bathroom doors would close or lock. Towel hanger in bathroom pulled out of wall barely hanging. Door to bedroom was hard to close and would stick when you open. There were nobs missing off furniture, rug not in good shape, and when you walk in front door the flooring is pulled up. The dock was new and outside of home was nice. Lake beautiful. Will not be back.
