Wishing I Could Rate Higher
This is a great little apartment in Grand Marais. It was very clean, well laid out, comfortable, great Internet, and good location. So what's not to love? Lack of attention to the accumulation of multiple small problems that have been ignored for more than a year even after being mentioned in previous reviews. For instance: Lack of window covering on entrance door - passerbys can easily look into the apartment where someone is sleeping on the hide-a- bed or see occupants at night when the interior is lit. Of note is that the apartment is at street level and the sidewalk is about 10 feet away. Each night we would drape a towel over the door for privacy. Poor condition of the yard - I had to clip the branches of the large Norway Maple hitting me in the head each time I walked to the apartment from the sidewalk. The firescar has lots of trash inside it and the sidewalk just outside the door leading to the firescar has a very active ant hill partially obscuring the sidewalk and could be easly stepped in (ouch) if you were not looking down. When we look out the window to the yard the weeds are the first thing you see obstructing the view - they are taller than the daylilies planted there. The toilet is very noisy and refills constantly (about every hour or so because there is a small leak in the tank valve). We needed to turn off the water to the toilet at night so we could sleep without the noise. The bathroom sink had a hand pump of hand soap but there was no soap in the bathtub and we had to make a trip to the store to get some. The apartment is advertised to sleep 4 so there were 4 plates, 4 cereal bowls, 4 forks, etc., but only 3 cups and 3 knives and no serving dishes. It is a beautiful kitchen though with adequate pans. But the real kicker for us was that once we were given the check-in instructions we were informed that we were expected to take our trash with us or pay an additional fee to have the host dispose of it for us!.
We have stayed in VRBO's all over the world and have never been expected to carry our trash with us on the rest of our journey or pay extra to dispose of it. The nightly fee plus a cleaning fee should be sufficient to expect trash removal - Grand Marais also has residential trash pickup.
All of these concerns/problems could be easily fixed with very little investment on the part of the host.
Great location, nice place
Very quiet, comfortable, convenient apartment in Grand Marais. Perfect location for downtown activities. Minor details could be improved like window covering on the front door and swelling of the bathroom door, but we enjoyed our stay very much.
Walkable to everything
The unit was exactly as advertised.
Tidy, well kept, very modern, great location
Property is in the perfect spot and is within walking distance of downtown. Owner was quick to respond when called. Nice kitchen that had everything you would need. Would definitely stay again.
quiet apartment close to downtown
This is a nice quite apartment very close to downtown. Its within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, the brewery, and the lake shore. It was clean and very minimally stocked and decorated. The bathroom is a little small if you have more than two people and the toilet was a little noisy on fill up. The kitchen had nice appliances although we at out most of the time.
Clean no frills apartment.
