Best that could be! Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

I simply loved this place. The house is spacious and up to date. The place is as quite and relaxing as can be. If you are looking for things to complain about, you will find a few, but overall this is a five star location and you will enjoy it.

Also the owner is extremely helpful and communicative. Getting through the security was breeze, no issues at all.

Better than advertised !

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I, and a group of friends went up to bring in the new year, we were more than pleased with the home. It was very clean, looked exactly like the pictures and video, the rooms were all spacious, the beds were comfortable. There were cleaning supplies in place, although, we purchased our own. It was definitely nice to see those things were open to us. David and Malcolm were very helpful and understanding in making our trip possible and peaceful. If you are looking for a get away here is your spot! Thanks

Responsive Owner but House has Issues

  • 3 of 5

A group of moms and small children rented this house in August for two nights. I’ll start with the positives. This is a large home that can accommodate 10 people easily. It has a nice view of a small lake and the deck is pleasant. The interior of the house was clean and providing some toiletries was a nice touch. The owner of the house was very accommodating and also quite responsive, which we greatly appreciated. The kitchen was well-stocked with cooking equipment and we had enough towels and washcloths. Having a washing machine and dryer was also very helpful.

Despite all of the above, however, we all felt there was room for improvement particularly in light of the nightly rate for this house. First of all, the security to get into this neighborhood is crazy. You have to fill out a ton of forms and provide your drivers license and registration to even enter the neighborhood, but once you do get in, you will wonder why. Many of the homes are run down and some would even qualify as blight. During our stay, one of the moms took the children to the neighborhood pool and a resident warned her not to leave her purse unattended for even a moment. This didn’t give us a great feeling about safety despite the Ft. Knox- like treatment at the front gate.

The house itself looks good upon arrival. However, the longer you stay, the more you notice basic maintenance problems. Lots of light bulbs were out, all the doors squeak loudly, the floors creak loudly throughout the house, several dining room chairs were broken with only a half-hearted attempt at repair (with duct tape!), several vent registers are missing, and at least one fire alarm was non-functional. There was a lot of broken garbage in the garage, which was easily accessible by kids off the living room. The yard isn’t particularly well maintained. The beds were not like a “feather” as one reviewer commented – the mattresses were fine, but you won’t feel like you’re staying in a luxury hotel on them by any stretch. It was especially frustrating that none of the beds had mattress pads as the sheets don't stay in place. In the master bath, the hot tub is falling apart. As we sat in the living room one night, we saw hundreds of tiny fruit flies swarming one of the living room lights. They were apparently attempting to join their many dead compadres who had already sought eternal rest in the bowels of the light fixture. This was not a pretty sight and should have been corrected.

Great House, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

Large house, lots of room for our family. Clean and well maintained, and the owner was great to work with. The deck was great for grilling and for views of the lake. We also enjoyed all the wildlife in the area.
