Perfect Get-away

  • 5 of 5

Six adults shared this house in perfect harmony. The location was just perfect, minutes away from anything we needed, and the horses are an added bonus. Athena was a great host, making sure we had all of our needs met. I would definitely recommend this house for a wine-tasting weekend!

This was a great location for family members coming up from San Diego and down from the Bay Area. Thanksgiving dinner was easily prepared in the large kitchen with multiple counter space. The fireplace was great, the furniture comfortable and there were even Christmas decorations on display. The property is beautiful and quiet. Excellent wineries are a short distance away. Athena was responsive and helpful.

Beautiful Setting

  • 4 of 5

My son got married at Spreafico Farm a few miles away. Lovely setting, the kitchen is gorgeous and views very nice. Very rustic and ranchy, but also super comfortable and quiet location. Super dog friendly my dogs had the time of their lives! Could have been a bit cleaner and better prepared but still a great time due to location and owner was very responsive to concerns. Would definitely return.

Country living on a ranch. I thought we might see vineyards from the home, but just horses

Very Disappointed Family

  • 1 of 5

Our family is a long time user of VRBO, and we’ve used it to book accommodations all over the world. I say this because we know a good VRBO experience from a bad one, and our time at the Edna Valley house was very bad indeed.

We located the property easily enough, and it is indeed set on a beautiful working ranch. We were excited to begin our stay, but that quickly faded as soon as we entered the property. Here’s what we found:

1. Odor: When we entered the house we were hit with a strong pet smell. The master bedroom, bathroom and bedrooms all have carpet that is clearly past its prime. Stains are plentiful, and the pet urine odor coming from the master bathroom (complete with carpeted toilet area) was so severe we closed the door entirely and could not use that bathroom. Our two girls slept in the bunk bedroom and had to share the top bunk, because the lower bed smelled like an animal had used it for a bathroom.

2. General disrepair: The property is not being well maintained. Missing screens, missing screen doors, spider webs on patio furniture, rusted fire pit, the slats in a louvered bedroom door were missing, towel racks hanging from loose mountings, no blind on the glass door in the master bedroom (hello creepers!), and it goes on.

3. Cleanliness: This was the final straw - the property simply is not clean. Food caked on to the kitchen switches, baseboard with deep dust and dirt, carpet stains, dog hair, window sills filled with dirt and spider webs.

We reached out immediately to the property manager Athena, and emailed pics to the management company Evolve. Although they were sympathetic and responsive, it didn’t change the experience. Even if they had sent in a cleaning service to resolve the cleaning issues, it would still have been done on my time and expense - we should be able to enjoy our vacation, not have to negotiate and allow time for work that should have been done prior to our arrival.

We requested a refund for our unused nights, and received only a partial refund with the explanation that “this property is set on a working ranch, and perhaps we were not a good fit for this type of location.” Being located on a ranch should not preclude the owner from living up to their responsibility to provide a clean, safe, well maintained property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the constructive feedback. We passed this information along to the homeowner as it is very important to her and Evolve that these problems get rectified for future renters. The carpet has been professionally cleaned since your check-out. Unfortunately, the previous renters were not careful with their pets and the pet had left urine stains on the carpet. The cleaners did not have time to professionally clean the carpet and hand cleaned the carpet as best as they could since it was a back-to-back booking. Another past guest who brought their dogs had one of their dogs run through the screened door. The door is currently getting repaired at Ace Hardware and should be replaced very shortly! Spiders are prevalent to this area during the Summer. Given the property is surrounded by woods and the seasonality, there is not much that can be done about the spiders. We sincerely apologize! The homeowner also recently redid the kitchen! It is actually adhesive that is stuck on the light switch in the kitchen. This was accidentally placed there during the kitchen renovations. The homeowner is working on switching out the light switch in the kitchen. There is also a privacy screen provided in the master bedroom closet if you would like to add shade/privacy to the room! The homeowner nor past guests have ever experienced anyone peeping into the window from the master bedroom. We are sorry you did not enjoy the property, Rick! We hope to assist you again in renting a vacation rental for your next trip that will exceed your expectations. Best of luck with your future travels! Cheers, Evolve Team

Quiet home with a great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall this was a nice rental home close to several downtowns and various Edna Valley wineries. Well appointed and very pet friendly. Biggest disappointments: no WiFi/internet, outdated & poor quality TV/video entertainment systems (also no written instructions), lack of security (no door keys), and tremendous number of spider webs inside and out. With several small changes this could easily become a 5 star property.
