Conveniently located, clean, comfortable house. We enjoyed our stay while attending the PGA.

  • 4 of 5

Owner was very responsive to two issues while we stayed at the house: 1) air conditioner unit went out, and he ensured that it was returned to operational status by the next day; and 2) we found that coffee maker didn't work on our first morning, and it had been replaced with a new unit by that afternoon.

The house was comfortable and nicely furnished. The dishes and silverware seemed to come from several sets, which was inconsistent with the quality of the furnishings and of the house. We enjoyed having the pool table to use and some of the interesting books that were in the house.

Owner provided excellent maps and information about restaurants, public transit, and the area to help guests enjoy their stay.

Horrible. Completely misrepresented.

  • 1 of 5

DO NOT STAY HERE. Day 1 85 degrees IN THE HOUSE. Air barely works, had to buy 2 fans and three couples had to buy hotel rooms. Morning of Day 2 we realize fridge is not working. Never fixed during our stay. Morning of Day 3 window AC upstairs stops working. By this time we had given up...

Furniture is shabby, along with pretty much everything else. Cushions worn torn and sunken in. We speculated they bought a foreclosure and furnished with garage sale scraps.

Worst VRBO experience.

They refunded less than half of the total.cost for the stay, and even with this it cost an additional $300 for the hotels, fans, and the fact we couldn't buy food (had to eat out every night and couldn't save leftovers).

Did I mention DO NOT STAY HERE??

Owner's Response: This group stayed at our Metro house during New York area’s heat wave of 2016, which happened to be the hottest stretch of weather in the area in 124 years. While we had three air-conditioning units in the home, they were not enough for such a large group (11 adults), given the extreme weather conditions. Despite the claim that one unit was not working, they all were working properly. Also, since their checkout, we have added a fourth air-conditioning unit so that future guests will not have a similar experience given another heat wave. Although the refrigerator was working both before this group checked in and after they checked out, it was later discovered that it did indeed have an intermittent problem, and has since been fixed. We have been renting our Metro house for many years and this is our first negative review. During this particular guest’s stay with us he was very difficult to work with, but was still issued the sincerest of apologizes, plus issued a sizeable, 50% refund for the inconveniences. Like with any home, unexpected issues arise. As a result, we cannot 100% guarantee a perfect stay for all of our customers. What we can guarantee, is that we will try to remediate any issue(s) our guests may encounter as soon as possible. In addition, given the circumstance, may reimburse some of the total cost – of which we did for this guest. We are always looking for ways to improve our homes so that, as many guests as possible, have the best stay at any of our Colbyco properties. When our guests are not happy, we are not happy. We apologize that the guest did not enjoy his stay at our home but take offense to his description of the furnishings of our home. We have only received compliments of the interior décor of Colbyco Metro. Maybe he likes newer furnishings, as Colbyco Metro has many antiques. Emin Colbyco

So Vintage

  • 5 of 5

THE PLACE WAS GREAT!!!

the 3 bedrooms on the main floor, the bed in the basement and the loft that has 3 beds....was more than enough space. I had a great time. Everything was right were I needed to be. Even though the central air was out for my vacation, I made due with it. Every room had a TV. I really loved the master bedroom bathroom. The shower was everything. I can't wait to go back.

My overall experience was I had so much fun. I turned 30 I got a way home there's definitely three bedrooms along there's a room in the basement and in the loft. I wish the central air was working but other than that I had a wonderful time. Can't wait until the next time

Beautiful fulls sized home in upscale quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

House is perfect for groups of 4 or more. The grounds are well kept and house interior clean and decorated with various antiques which are quite interesting. I would recommend this property to all that have a need for a full size house.
