Not a great place
We rented this home in August,2009. The carpets are filthy and spotted, not safe for a young child to crawl or lay on. They are also duct taped together in spots.The windows appear to not have been cleaned for at least a year. The coffee pot was filthy, the garbage can had dried old ketchup it. I used half a bottle of 409 cleaning the place, and I am not a germophobic. The lawn was never mowed, the "sandy beach" had no sand. Some of the beaches were close for several days due to an e-coli problem. I do not recommend this property.
Owner's Response: This is the first complaint I ever received.
I did check with these renters a day or 2 after they arrived and they said all was fine. Several days later, they called and said they needed vac bags and would I reimburse them, which I did. They also mentioned the windows and i offered to have my cleaning lady come over and handle any concerns they had. They declined. but I had her call them anyway and offer to take care of any cleaning issues they had. They mentioned nothing about the windows to her or any other major concerns, and said it was not necessary for her to come over.
As for the rugs, they were steam-cleaned in June and no else complained.
As far as the lack of a Sandy Beach, repairs (due to winter storm damage) were begun in the spring to be completed before the rental season. Two-thirds of them were done by May, but the contractor ran into problems and kept promising each week that all would be completed the following week. He never finished, and it was too late hire someone else to do this specialty work. NO one else complained and the beach """had""" sand and was usable just not as pretty as the pictures.
I hired another contractor who could only and did complete the work right after Labor Day.
As far as the grass goes, it had been cut faithfully every two weeks thru July. I had no idea it was not cut in August--the renters never mentioned it.
I also hired another landscaper for next season.
My private beach was "not" affected by any water problems and was usable. Nor was i informed by Arrowhead Lakes of any other water issues.
I am sorry these renters found so much fault with my home, but no one else did and all is in tip top shape for next summer.
