Perfect weekend getaway
I recently stayed at this property for my boyfriends birthday with 13 other people - this house was perfect. I was skeptical about the size of the house due to the amount of people we had coming, but it was more spacious than I imagined. The house was extremely clean and had everything that was listed. The house had a great open floor plan so we were able to really enjoy each others company - and the pool table was a major plus!! The location was also perfect - supermarket and beer distributor were very close and big boulder was less than 15 minutes away.
Most importantly, Alex was extremely accommodating - he was responsive from the start of the process to the end of our trip. I highly recommend this house, and will definitely be back!! :)
Thanks Kim so glad you guys enjoyed the house and poconos for the celebration. Alex
The house is perfect for our group very large and spacious we had a great time
The house is perfect for our group very large and spacious we had a great time we had Three families together very clean the owner just did all new flooring in the house was very nice the owner was great giving us lots of suggestions what to do in the area etc. I would recommend this house anybody just as advertised.
The pictures do not compare to the reality of this house!!!!!!!!...... It looked so nice in pictures that we did not care to pay the VERY HIGH price that we had to pay for our vacations. ALL THE FURNITURE IN THIS HOUSE WAS OLD. I could not believe that the owner of this house charges so much money to rent this house and invests nothing on it. Not just the furnitures was old but was also broken. There was only one old sofa in the living room and it was all old and broken. The chairs in the dining room were very old and each one different to the other. There was one of the chairs that got broken when we sat on it since the first day. We could actually have had sued the owner of this house because my cousin was actually hurt by the fall. I made sure to take pictures of it just to be in the safe side.
The carpet on the stairs going to the basement was always loose, ready for an accident to happen. We actually called the owner to inform him, and he sent someone to fix it but the guy only put staples to secure the carpet, and the next day the carpet was loose again. We were always afraid that some of us will be badly hurt if falling down the stairs.
The same guy that had to come to fix the carpet going to the basement, had to come to fix the bathroom on the basement that was always flooded. It was disgusting!!!!..... that bathroom kept flooded until the day we departed.
I also think there was no insulation on the basement, because it was always freezing!!!!!....there was heat inside of the rooms on the basement but the living room was always freezing!!!!!....
The garbage was another nightmare!!!... everyday we had to take the garbage to the cremation center that was almost a 40 MINUTES DRIVE FROM THE HOUSE!!!!!....
And if it was not enough.... The house was soooo dirty when we got it!!!! ...there was dust under the beds and under the furniture. We paid for the cleaning service but the cleaning lady gets the money for doing no work at all... We also called the owner to complain about this, because the house was filthy... That cleaning person should be changed asap or the owner should go and see the cleaning work before the house is rented to someone..... TERRIBLE HOUSE..Not worth the big amount of money we paid for it!!!!!!!
DONT LISTEN TO THIS REVIEW !!
Unfortunately this is a situation in which this renter left my property in such horrible shape and broke many items etc. I discuss this with them after their departure and ask for compensation for how bad the house was left this review is completely a re-venge review because of my asking for compensation etc.
House is beautiful completely clean as a matter of fact I just got finished doing all new flooring throughout the entire house and the entire house freshly painted to prove this review was totally pass if you read the part about the trash pass you’ll now this is complete fiction The garbage incinerators are literally 1 mile from the home they claim 40 minute drive Completely absurd please don’t take this review seriously the house is everything you see and more.
Extremely private and spacious
This an ideal spot for a weekend getaway with a bunch of friends. In my case the groomsmen of my wedding stayed here for the weekend and loved it. Plenty of rooms, high ceilings, enough bathes for 8 people comfortably. I def recommend this house. Alex was very helpfull with and gave specific instructions/checkout checklist.
Spacious, comfortable and nice location!!
We were there (sixteen of us) for this labor day weekend and had so much fun!! Very comfortable for large groups, enough beds to go around. Wi-Fi was super fast even when many of us were using it same time. 3 full baths really helped us get ready in the morning. Very close to the lake, nice neighborhood for morning and evening walks. Owner was very prompt with communication, very easy to check-in and check out. Clear directions on how to get started (lock box, trash, water heater, well pump, etc.) and checkout list.
Few minor problems we had: some strange smell in basement bedroom - not strong but annoying enough, fan light in 2nd floor guest bed room didn't work.
All in all - I strongly recommend this place for a fun getaway in Poconos.
Acceptable, but disappointing condition
Somewhat run-down with some unpleasant issues. No one thing would be that bad on its own but in totality they amounted to a poor experience.
- The entire first floor (& to a lesser degree the entire house) was musty & dusty. It had an odor the whole time. Staying in the ground floor bedroom bothered my allergies. The entire ground floor carpeting should probably be replaced with flooring.
- A lot of furniture was in poor condition. Some dining chairs were sticky. Some beds had ugly-looking dark stains. 3 outdoor chairs had the seats ripped out. The outdoor umbrella had multiple broken arms. The paint on the porch was coming loose in chunks - whoever painted it didn't prep the wood.
- Mildew on one of the shower curtains.
- The owner required us to bring our own sheets & towels, incl. hand towels, or pay an extra linen fee (outside of VRBO). This kind of hidden fee should be disclosed before booking.
- The house is part of a property association. The owner provided 8 wristbands that I assume would allow access to community resources/recreation, but no explanation was provided for what they offered. I asked if we had access to the nearby beach but got no response.
- Wi-Fi didn't work all weekend. I contacted the owner who said he'd call the cable company, but nothing came of it.
- The listing advertised A/C but it was a single portable unit on the 2nd floor that couldn't really cool the entire house. The owner suggested opening the 3rd floor sliding door for cooling, but it didn't have a screen so it wasn't realistic to leave it open without letting in a lot of bugs.
- The security deposit was either exorbitantly high, or you had to pay an nonrefundable insurance fee. Another hidden fee.
- Lots of space: many bedrooms with lots of beds. One heads-up though: the 3rd floor loft doesn't have a door, so anyone staying there won't have as much privacy, or isolation from living room noise.
- Good location - prime Poconos near lots of good stuff.
- Lots of table settings and kitchenware to facilitate cooking for a big group.
- Quiet neighborhood
- Convenient grocery store nearby
- The beds were firm. Not my thing, but I know some people like that.
- No yard or outdoor space other than the porch.
- Cell service is decent.
Overall, we had a good time in the Poconos, but I'm not planning on renting this house again. We were looking for a comfortable home base for some nearby activities and this house came up short.
This was a young group of kids renting the house and was upset because I drilled them after finding out they were younger so I think this is a revenge review please take it with grain of salt it is not indicative of the rental at all obviously if you read all the other reviews that would be proof enough.
The house is very clean , spacious and very comfortable I have had seven rentals after this group and everyone was thrilled with the property !!
The lake is in walking distance and permits fishing. Enjoy the privileges at our clubhouse. Swim in our Olympic-size pool or on our sandy beach; enjoy the playground with the kids.
