Arrived after a 4 hour drive and the home was not ready. In fact the property owner, Del Ann, claimed it wasn't even on her calendar. She took zero responsibility and blamed it on VRBO. I began sharing my reservation confirmation info and receipt of payment with her. She told me another guest had just checked out and she wasn't sure of the home's condition. Then, she asked me and my guests to leave for an hour so she could prep the home for our stay. I mentioned contacting VRBO about the reservation mishap and she claimed to be on hold with them and told me she was also going to email them and forward any resolution from the incident. We returned one hour later which clearly was not enough time for her to clean the home and do a thorough walk through. The entire home looks as if it has never been deep cleaned..the floors, counters and especially the upstairs carpet need thorough cleaning. Dust is EVERYWHERE. There was food left in the oven, blue slime on the carpet floor and a pan of moldy potatoes left in the laundry room. The master bedroom sheets smelled like mildew. So much that my 8 and 5 year old children kept complaining of the smell at bedtime. She told me clean towels were in the dryer..I checked on those and they also smelled like mildew. The bathtub wouldn't drain (2 inches of standing water). The wifi does NOT work. It's evident she lives in the house still. There are personal belongings left out throughout the home. The bedroom closets are locked so you have no where to hang your clothes. Zip ties are used through out the entire home to keep drawers and cabinets closed. Had we not traveled 4 hours with children (one being a 4 month old baby) we wouldn't have stayed there given its conditions. Then, our experience went from bad to scary after check out. The property owner started harassing me with texts and accusing me of things we were not responsible for. She was completely unprofessional to the point I had to block her from contacting me any further. I immediately contacted VRBO. Customer care assured me my reservation was in fact accepted and confirmed by the property owner, Del Ann. It WAS on her list of reservations. Due to her lack of responsibility, organization and cleanliness I get attacked with absurd accusations. I feel as if I'm being set up. It's been the most unsettling feeling and worst experience to date. BEWARE of this listing.
I would highly recommend anyone renting to this person be extremely cautious. Our home was complexity destroyed. Dealing with this woman was hands down the worst experience of my life. After some miscommunication between myself and the renter (she booked our home and after numerous attempts to reach her were under the impression she had cancelled) the entire experience deteriorated to the point I felt extremely uncomfortable with them staying in my home and offered to put them in hotels as an alternative. They did not agree to this and we reluctantly proceeded with the reservation. Upon their check-out we inspected the home and found an extensive list of items that were damaged and broken. They clearly let their children run wild in the home with little to no supervision. There was such an extensive amount of alcohol left in the home after their departure it was clear they just partied all weekend and destroyed my home.
1. A wall mounted shadow box full of artwork from since my daughter was born was ripped off the wall shattered and thrown away. Not only did they throw the box away they threw all the artwork away which were irreplaceable pieces of my daughters childhood.
2. They greatly damaged our dining room wood floors with scratches where chairs were drug across the floors.
3. We found good mashed and spread all over our cloth dining room chairs.
4. The upstairs carpet was stained with a blue slime substance and the stains were unable to be removed by a professional carpet cleaner and the carpet had to be replaced.
5. Expensive artwork was ripped off the wall and leaned against an exposed rock wall in the home and the frame was severely scratched and had to be replaced.
The list goes on an on. Their deposit was kept but did not even come close to covering the cost of the extensive damage. DO NOT RENT TO THESE PEOPLE!
Great for a weekend
We had a great experience with our family! The home and property are beautiful. The host was pleasant to work with. The only drawback is there is no WiFi. Would stay again for our next K-State graduation.
This quiet countryside retreat was a wonderful place to enjoy our family gathering! The beautiful old house was perfectly restored with plenty of modern elements and amenities and charm galore! We enjoyed everything about our stay and will definitely be back:)
I will have to say my husband and I were excited to be staying at the Historic Flint Hills Farm but we were extremely disappointed in the property when we arrived in Manhattan, KS, to celebrate our son's college graduation. We had our parents staying with us and family arriving in from all over and upon our arrival we found the property to be dirty and unclean. The house certainly has character and the location is quiet and beautiful, but the accommodations were nothing like what we had expected. The house looked as if it had not been cleaned for some time, the floors were dirty with food and cobwebs, as was most of the house. It was upsetting to both my husband and I as we don't mind spending money when it comes to memorable occasions but for the amount of money we spent on our stay we were very unsatisfied. I hope that the owners consider the situation and make amends. I would hesitate to recommend this property unless the owners make some much needed changes. This experience was definitely an eye opener for both my husband and I, it was also a situation where we've come to accept things as they were and cut our losses.
If you're looking for peace this place is for you
We really enjoyed our Thanksgiving Holiday in this historical farm house that has all the modern upgrades inside. We will for sure be staying here again!
Lovely home in the scenic flinthills.
The house was decorated beautifully. 6 of us stayed for 3 nights. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio. We dined on the dinning room table and loved using the high end appliances to cook and store food. Some details were missing but Dell and Kelly worked hard to make our stay memorable. A great combo of new and old features make this home a fun stay.
