not as advertised and ill-prepared for our stay
Though this house is lovely and has lots of open common areas (the main reason we decided to stay here), it was a serious disappointment.
The sleeping accomodations are listed as 8-10. In fact, there was 1 king bed, 1 trundle bed (2 singles), and 2 full beds (without frames - the mattresses were simply sitting on the floor - terribly tacky). That means 8. The extra 2 it is meant to accomodate (which we did not fully realize until we arrived) were to sleep on an airmattress out in the common room (no screens, no privacy) and that air mattress wasn't even available to us the first night. Indeed, we were completely unable to contact the owner when we arrived and did not hear from him until the next morning.
There were no written instructions or information about the property or surrounding area (something we've come to expect with vrbo.com homes) and so we didn't know how to turn on the hot tub, hook up to the wireless, turn on the stove, use the cable/tv system, where to find dishtowels and pots and towels and extra linens/blankets - and what to do in the event of a blown breaker (which happened 3 times in the week we were there). Once we did get ahold of the owner, he was gracious and I feel he tried his best to be helpful, but we were very disappointed in the description and prepartion of the house itself.
Though this house sleeps "8-10," there was only one small dining table and 4 chairs - an obvious dearth of seating (there was a couch and love seat and another table with four chairs outside, but no possibility of sharing a meal together). The pool, though a decent size, was dirty and the tank on the BBQ had a leak (eek!) so we couldn't use the BBQ until the tank was replaced (which the owner did do). When we arrived, there wasn't enough soap for all the bathroom sinks, no extra toilet paper, and no laundry soap (though if we should have provided our own, we werenot notified). Again, the owner was gracious and retrieved those items within a day, but we were disappointed again that the accomodations were neither as described nor properly ready for our arrival.
In sum - lovely house, lovely floors, very cool master shower. The owner was gracious and helpful, the hot tub and hammock were neat, the couches comfortable (though again did not provide enough seating for 10), but the sleeping accomodations were a serious disappointment and the property was not adequately prepped for our stay.
