Overall my stay was great, and would consider staying there again. Stayed for three nights. The room was clean, air was fresh, and looked like the photos online. Price was reasonable. I did not see the home owner frequently. I spent most of my time out of the house, so I didn't expect to. When I did see her, she was very pleasant and accommodating. Though I give this a great rating, there were some issues that I experienced that may concern future guests.
One of the main reasons that I booked this room, over others, was the fact that it advertised Wi-Fi availability. Being from out of the country, having Wi-Fi was essential for communication. Discovering that the house had a very unreliable connection, made my trip problematic.
Another issue was parking...the home is located on the corner of a major intersection, with two parking spaces at the residence. It was a bit tricky to get in and out of the driveway at busy traffic hours. I lucked out and was able to use the driveway. If there would have been any additional guests with vehicles, we would have had a major issue. Not to mention if I had a larger size vehicle. There was no convenient/close street parking.
We had a great time at this property. The pool is heated and well maintained and so is the playground. The property is clean and roomy enough for four adults and two little kids. The location is close to a lot of restaurants and shopping and is in a very expensive neighborhood (read: safe). The host provided a welcome platter for us, which is nice. Wifi is fast, facilities is fine, and washer/dryer works well.
As for rules, yes, there are more rules for this rental than other rentals (I've rented from VRBO and Airbnb for years). I dealt with it fine, but can see somebody else might see it as a little too restrictive.
I give it five stars because it is a great rental.
