Minor adjustments could make this house nice

  • 3 of 5

This is a large house with technically, 4 bedrooms. The 5th bed is within the basement game room (pool table, dart board). 3 bedrooms contain queen/double beds. 1 bedroom contains a bunk bed. The 5th bed is a queen in the game room.

Pros:

- Large house which can accommodate ~10 adults and a couple of kids

- Large backyard

- Directly across the street from a fabulous Mexican restaurant, La Rosa, which I highly recommend, a coffee shop, 3 Goats, which has good coffee, but is SLOW, and a great grocery store

- Kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfasts

Cons:

- Cleanliness is the real issue with this house

- While the house initially smelled clean, carpet odors became apparent. I discovered the kitchen floor was pretty dirty when I wiped up water dribbling from my dogs mouth with a paper towel. The towel came up pretty dirty. The carpets have some easily seen stains; a good cleaning would help with them a lot. Carpet replacement would even be better. The BBQ on the deck was filthy and we decided we didn't feel like cleaning it to use it. Several of the towels had stains. I could only find 3 or 4 hand towels and we needed more.

- Body wash provided in the showers, but no hand soap at the sinks. We brought bath gel, but didn't bring hand soap.

- Several window screens were popped out and just lying on the roof or ground.

- There were several light bulbs out. Not a huge deal, but one of those situations where we just asked "why?". Just replace the burnt out bulbs.

- Lack of seating in the game room. Hard to find light switches and power switches. Dart board is a "bring your own darts," which is just weird.

Overall, purchase new towels, and plenty of them for the whole house. Expertly clean or better yet, replace the carpets throughout the house. Hire a professional cleaning company to clean the house after every rental. If you already have one, fire them because they're doing a lousy job. It's really noticeable. Label light switches, so we know what switches turn on what lights (I.e., pool table light is behind the electronic game?). Place hand soap at all of the sinks, including the kitchen sink. Clean the BBQ; it really is pretty gross.

Owner's Response: It has been brought to our attention that there are some issues with the cleanliness of the house. In addition to hiring a new cleaning service, the carpets have been scheduled for a shampoo. This is a busy season for us so it is helpful to receive this feedback so problems can be corrected before the next renter arrives. On August 1st we did a major overhaul of the house. All new towels and 100 % new bedding. We Had the carpets cleaned. We paid a cleaning service to do a deep clean. Fixed all the stuff that had been broken. We replaced all the pots and pans and all the glassware in the house. We have contacted the last two guests as they checked in and they both said the place looked great. For anyone that stayed at the house after it got destroyed and before we could fix it, Id be happy to give you a free weekend.

Bad news.

  • 1 of 5

Not happy. Bed unmade. Old food left in fridge. Stove so dirty would not use it. Towels wadded up in laundry room. No screens on some windows and no screen door on downstairs sliding door so could not open it to cool off at night. Light bulbs out and no replacements. Could go on but doubt anyone. Would care.

Great 30th Birthday!

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house for a 30th birthday celebration. It was amazing! Everything I was expecting and more. We were able to fit all 12 of us adults in the house comfortably. Great location, close to town and in a lovely neighborhood. We'll definitely be back!

Awesome house with lots of space! & pet friendly!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for 4 families! Plenty of sleeping space for all + the dog! We loved the pool table & great location. The wii was nice for the kids. Correspondence with owner was lacking. I tried reaching him 2 times with no success but everything went as planned smoothly. Everything was managed through a website.

Owner's Response: This person stayed at our house while we were climbing El Capitan,no phone service. The person I left checking my phone chose to email the guest instead of calling them like I do. 98% of the time I'm a phone call away and my number is on the front door.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful place for a large group. Multiple floors to spread out and a nice sized fenced yard. The inside had many nicely designed updates. I would stay here again.
