Enjoyable, Cozy Home

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Description of property was good. Communication with owner was good. We were surprised by how large the backyard was. Plenty of space inside the home as well.

Not worthy of a star but I had to press one for my review to be submitted!

  • 1 of 5

It gives me no pleasure to write this poor review but you need to know the truth. We were not happy with our stay at all. I did not receive a welcome email from HomeAway. I kept having to email Theresa for information b/c we were coming from another state & wanted to make sure all was well. First of all let's talk about the beds. The beds were just awful! What couple sleeps in a double bed these days? On top of being too small it was very very uncomfortable. We tried the twin beds in the hopes that they would be more comfortable. They weren't. We had no wifi. The network written on the information sheet in the house never came up on my phone. Also we had no TV. I could turn it on but it didn't have any signal unless I held the antenna above my head. We did try to watch a dvd but it would freeze several times so we just turned it off. A lot of the bath towels smelled musty. There were dead bugs on the floor too. We left a deck of cards there so people could at least have something to do. We felt like for what we paid it was a rip off. We will never stay there again!

Owner's Response: That is terrible you had a bad experience. The bed sizes were listed on the listing before you rented. The property was advertised as not having cable. We have never had any issues with dead bugs, if so a text or phone call should have been made to have the issue cleaned up. If bath towels smelled musty a call should have been made to receive new ones, we have never had this complaint before. If there was trouble with the wifi then a call should have been made. I feel a lot of these issues could have been resolved with a phone call, now that you have gone i dont have any way to validate these statements.

Summer Home Near Lake St. Clair

  • 4 of 5

This home was cozy and very clean! It is located on a very quiet street and within a short distance to the Algonac Boardwalk, Marine City and Port Huron.

All the amenties were there, including a washer and dryer which helped a lot.

The enclosed front porch was perfect for that early morning coffee. The spacious yard with patio and BBQ grill was peaceful and pleasant to sit in and have children and adults have fun playing games.

I would stay here again and highly recommend it for a family that needs to be in the area for any occasion.
