Guestbook comments from the owner

Upon arrival of the renters, we walked them through every room of the house. They did not express any concern that the house was not clean during the walk through.



On Saturday the weather was still bad and around 1:45 p.m. I received a call from our guest indicating that there was a burning odor from the water heater and they shut it off. She said they might need to leave since they wouldn't have hot water. I told her I'd try to get a serviceman over and that I'd call her right back. She said the weather wasn't that good; they'd be there. I was able to get hold of the serviceman who had installed the heater. He had the day off but said he would get right over. I called the renter to let her know this.



The serviceman called when he arrived at the house around 2:30. He called again around 3 when he was done. He indicated that there had been parts from the heater laying on the floor and that it appeared that someone had tampered with it. He also said that if the heater was smoking, it would have automatically shut off and not need to be turned off as they had indicated. He said it was fine now and they would have hot water with 15 - 20 minutes.



I called the renter back right after the serviceman left to tell her that the water heater was fixed and they should have hot water in a few minutes. At this point she said that they were thinking of leaving anyway. Out of the blue she said that the house was dirty and they cleaned it. I told her I was surprised by this as we had done a walk through with her and her husband and everything was fine. I asked why she hadn't commented during our walk through or ever mentioned this problem before now. She had no response. At that point I said to call me if there were further problems.



At 4:15 I received a call to say that they were leaving. She asked if there was any possibility of getting money back for the second night. I indicated that as it was late Saturday and the water heater 'problem' had been resolved immediately and that it was already late in the day on Saturday, I could not refund money for Saturday. She said that's what she thought, but thought she'd ask anyway.



I'm sorry that the weather was bad and their plans were spoiled. I do however disagree with their portrayal of the house as not clean. In fact, we were suspect as it was only after the heater was quickly repaired that they even mentioned the house not being clean.

Nice house, near so many attractions

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice house, with a lot of room. Clean, comfortable, and even a garage to park in. It is in a nice, safe neighborhood, near so many attractions in and around Musekgon. My dog loved the large fenced in back yard. Thank you for a great stay!

Plenty of space for everyone!

  • 4 of 5

House was very clean and provided all the necessities. The backyard was great and we really enjoyed having the space to play games outside and loved the fire pit. Special thanks to Heather for her flexibility with our arrival time.

Great house for the price!

  • 5 of 5

My kids & I enjoyed our stay. The house was the perfect size, everyone could have they're own room. We enjoyed s'mores with the fire pit in the back yard. Close to the beach, kayaking, mini golf & go-karts. All the amenities of home. Thank you Ellen & Sandy for sharing your home with us!

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

Great Backyard. Kids loved it. I enjoyed dinning space for 6 we all ate together for once and no cell phones were allowed priceless. What could have made our down time better is to update televisions in bedrooms so they play without interruptions and a new mattress in the 1st bedroom upstairs. However we all sat in living room and watched TV.As a family we are looking to returning. The neighbors were really nice. Great neighborhood/location.
