WARNING! Owner steals your $ by not returning security deposit

  • 1 of 5

I rented this unit for 4 days while I was working out of town. I booked a place that allows pets in case my wife came to visit and brought our dog. She did not visit and there was never a pet in the home. I received an email informing me that all of my deposit will be withheld because of pet urine stains. There is another bad review stating the exact same thing happened to them in December of 2016. Lesson - this person will steal your deposit money if you say you are bringing a pet, regardless of any damage or not. People like this should be put in jail.

Owner's Response: I never said there were urine stains. I do not care if his wife was here, I do not care he had or did not have a dog in the home. Here is the conversation: "Improper use of washing machine, dog urine residue left in tub of washer. Unaware, I washed set of king white flannel sheets, pillow cases and second wash, king blanket...dried both when I realized everything I touched was smelling of dog urine, and a grey color on all items. The third load in the machine at this time were all the white cotton towels. After using pinesol on both washer and dryer, I re washed all items three times. It seems there is no longer the smell but these items should be tossed. Along with the washer and dryer, I feel were somewhat contaminated." He replied: "We didn't even have a dog at your home. You are obviously trying to scam me out of my cleaning deposit and I will not stand for it. Call me as soon as you get this and be ready to get chewed out." I said: "I don't believe you; but I cannot prove what happened, otherwise I would have kept your deposit. I did not mind if you had a dog here or not, it was the items washed that were of concern." He said: "You supplied no photos, no proof, no justification whatsoever. Another customer complained of the same scam two months ago when they stayed there. Nice try Christine. I am watching for the refund. You are smart to return the money, as I am not the kind of man you want to steal from." And then he posted a review, side stepping the issue again. Christine

Great property, but...

  • 3 of 5

We were looking forward to our stay in the Cheyenne Canyon cabin- although the website said check in was at 1pm, we were texted to say we needed to check in after 4pm (check out was also changed from 11am as listed to 10am). That was fine, we found other things to do before 4pm. When we arrived, the cabin was in excellent condition- perfect for our needs! The only problems we encountered were with the rather old TV and playing a DVD we had brought from home and the wonderful fireplace we had hoped would work (it appears to be a gas unit). We texted Christine about both but never received a response. When we received the refund for our deposit, she had taken money out for a pet stain to clean the carpets. We always check both for anything we might have left behind and anything out pet might have left behind and we were certain there were no issues. I emailed Christine about this- again, no response. Although I realize some people are probably cavalier about leaving a mess in someone else's property, it would seem if that were the case the owner should contact the renters to state there was a problem.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I enjoyed our comfortable, homey stay at the Roomy Cabin. It was clean, spacious and quiet. Deer visited daily. We even saw a doe and her two fawns just yards from the cabin on our drive back from our days adventure! Very convenient location to Garden of the Gods, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Helen Hunt Falls and all that Colorado Springs has to offer. The fall colors were so outstanding we took two trips to Cripple Creek that is about a 50 minute drive away. Great photo opportunities! Christine always responded quickly to any questions we had, sent valuable information before our stay concerning weather, places to see within minutes of the cabin, grocery stores etc., as well as refunding the damage deposit the same day of departure. We would definitely stay again and recommend it highly!

Comfortable, Nice Neighborhood

I spent a couple of days in the cabin while preparing for a meeting. It was a warm and comfortable place. Plan to return someday!

Great quiet cabin on the creek!

  • 5 of 5

Slept great, spacious bathroom, quiet, no traffic. Could have use a few more channels on TV, but the creek made up for it. Thank you!

Close to everything but quiet and secluded

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It's accurate that there are some potential hazards for small children in this cabin so be aware of those. Overall the cabin was really comfortable and quiet and the stream behind the cabin makes it peaceful and relaxing. We had quick access to the Broadmoor and the Cheyenne Mountain zoo as well as into Canon City for the Royal Gorge tour. Kitchen was well-equipped, making it easy for meals as well.
