Stayed here many times, excellent house

  • 5 of 5

My family of 11 have rented this property 7 times in a period of 10 years. I came back on homeaway to check the property calendar for dates open to start deciding on summer booking. When I felt that I needed to write this review in response to some of the crazies that have left outrageous feedback on this property. Clearly these renters must have done something wrong to not get refunds.  

In our last visit we stayed this past December 2016 for the holidays. Carolina, the owner, left us a beautiful snack basket, 2 bottles of champagne and homemade cheese cake!!!! This is in addition to the easy booking process we have had each time we return. The house has been spotless for every booking. Our deposit is also returned within 2 weeks at most from when we leave the house. Not once did we have any issues with this.

The house is very large and the owners have kept upgrading the home with new stuff each time we have stayed there. Gives everyone someone to do and keep busy.  I like how some things that we may not have at home ourselves are offered. Carolina is also kind enough to leave a note with instructions on the use of certain gadgets. The obvious reading for operation is required, like the spa. If we have questions beyond the instructions the owners are always a call away and very attentive. 

In all our stays it's been very convenient because the house is always stocked with extra's of everything. For example, we don't need to carry extra sheets or pillows. The kitchen too has a large array of pots, dishes and even cups for coffee for more than 12 people. So we feel at home and less burden to bring our own stuff. Not to mention having to spend extra money. 

Working with my family now to select a new getaway to this really beautiful house.

I had 2 requirements after searching endlessly in the poconos seemed to be impossible. We needed a large home that can fit our boat and trailer. But the house itself needed to be spacious to accommodate my family of 10. I also didn't want to drive far to dock my boat. You would think its the poconos and there is ample space for all of these minimum requirements. But wrong! Thank God I found this place! It's called the hidden jewel and it truly is just that. The driveway and property area was huge! We parked 5 cars, 1 trailer and 1 boat on the property. No extra fees charged per vehicle. Once inside the property, we smelled freshness and just cleaned aroma. Then everyone scurried in different directions to pick a room. It was so nice to see that each bedroom had its own identity and color scheme. You felt transported into a peaceful place of relaxation each evening. My wife raved over the kitchen, 2 ovens, lots of counter space and excellent selection of pots. It looks just as homeowner explained. They decorated the home for personal use. These special touches made it so comfortable to stay. We had many questions on the town and all were answered promptly. The stay flew by so fast and were sad when it came to an end. Thank you for the excellent service!

Excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Review is long overdue. We have been coming to this house for the past 8 years. Initially it was for Christmas. We fell in love with it so we decided to

start coming whenever our schedules permits. Our household is all boys. The area provides plenty of physical activities like fishing, and swimming. So we are always on the go and take advantage how everything is so close to the house.

The service we receive is impeccable. I never have any complaints. House is always clean when we arrive. Greeted by a nice basket with treats. Plus after our long drive we can easily plop into bed for a nap since the beds are already made like in a hotel. No work for us in bringing linens. We notice improvements be it to the house or equipment like tvs, new stove and such. The owner is always looking for ways to make the house more entertaining and comfortable. This is from my experience having seen the changes through the years. My family appreciates that since it makes us feel relaxed like in our own home and not just away on vacation. If we ever need anything or have questions the owner gets back to us right away.

Felt compelled to send in my review because of crazy people out there. Don't let them fool you. This experience both with the house and the location is not to be missed. We certainly won't!!

Booked a second stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for everything! It was all wonderful! A couple of weeks ago we spent a week at this property. We communicated with carolina, the owner on a last minute vacation. Within 5 minutes, we were booked and confirmed for our week long vacation. 2 hours later after packing we were on our way to the Poconos. We got the driving directions and keys and were on our way. Never been to the area but owner was patient in answering all the questions we had. Also offered dinner recommendations. We will highly recommend this home to our family and friends. We loved it so much we may come back for the holiday vacation if its available. House was very large, clean and nicely decorated. Kids ran all over since there was so much space and they really enjoyed the game room. They stayed out of our hair so adults got to rest too. The house had something for everyone to enjoy. Too bad the vacation went toooooooo fast. The welcome package we received was very helpful, especially with the direction information. From beginning to end it was painless and fast. Our deposit was also received back within a week. I liked how the paperwork and booking process was made very easy. Thank you again for extending us the rental. In process of rebooking again for month of November as we speak.

Stay away from this rental

  • 1 of 5

First of all the house, the house was old and nothing like the pictures and the description made it look like. Once we arrived I called the owner because I wasn't sure how to unlock the keypad lock on the door. I understand it was 11:00 pm, but she suggested I call with any questions anyway. The lady who answered the phone was rude and sounded upset I called with questions about the door. Once we walked in we noticed signs all over the house. Rude signs pretty much dictating our every move. Everything from opening the door to how to go about using linen was posted on a sign. They even requested we leave the washer loaded with our used sheets. If I wanted to do house work I would have stayed home. Frankly, it was not relaxing at all. My family and I have rented other properties in the past and have never been asked to leave the linen in the washer. We exited the house about 30 minutes prior the check out time and a car was already parked outside waiting for us to leave so they can come in and clean. To top it all, it has been more than two months since we stayed there and we are yet to get our deposit back. First, they said they mailed it. You can simply call the bank and cancel it, somehow this turned out to be such a difficult task for them, so I continue to wait for my deposit. The house is overpriced and the experience is not worth it. If you are looking for a nice time definitely don't stay there.

Just returned from Amazing Trip

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 4 night stay and we cant wait to go back!!! My group of 5 couples with three toddlers found this property by chance, after much searching thru the internet. Our experience was very easy from the start. I informed the owner Carolina of the dates and within minutes we had a price and contract that met all our expectations ready to go. Booking process was a breeze. A few days before our departure we got door to door driving directions. From having visited the Poconos in the past I can say that was also very easy because the last time we stayed at another property we were lost almost at every turn. The property is very large. I highly recommend it for families with children because there is a lot of space. Most important thing we wanted to find was a clean home because of our children. The house was extremely clean. The inside of the house is so beautiful and very tastefully decorated. Its very welcoming. Everything was outstanding including the huge spa and outdoor deck which we loved observing nature. The kitchen basically opens up to beautiful view of the woods. It was very breathtaking each morning. The place was so peaceful, we didn't want to go home. Besides the property having many things to keep us busy like a pool table and tvs in all bedrooms. We discovered once we ventured outside the hideout there was also plenty to do locally. In minutes we were at the supermarket or many restaurants to pick from. Some of us had to also work. The owner offers free wifi, worked perfectly entire time considering we are in the woods. Already in discussions with my group to return later this year. I also have to say we got lucky because the owner was kind enough to not force us to stay a full week like other places in the summer. Our schedules did not allow for it so the flexibility was really appreciated.
