Beware of issues and rude management
We recently stayed here for a weekend. Upon arrive I received a message that I had to pay a cash cleaning fee or we are not allowed to check in. When I spoke with property manager about this fee never being communicated at time of booking nor communicated you had to pay cash or you were not allowed to check in , he got extremely rude with me and threaten to cancel our stay. I’ve used homeaway several times and any fees were presented up front in contract and paid on the site. It seemed very shady and handled very unprofessional. I also noticed that was reported as a compliment in another review after the fact . Once inside, we saw all the beds had no sheets on them. We were instructed to search through a closet of trash bags of sheets and find the sizes for the bed. The sheets seemed 30 years old and dirty. In fact the whole place was dirty. The bathroom situation was a nightmare. We had 12 people and it was advertised 3 bathrooms. The 3rd bathroom we could barley fit in and use. When you sat on the toilet your knees hit the wall. Also when one person showered another could not or there would be no water pressure or hot water. Don’t expect any soap or toiletries. The windows were covered with plastic and the top bedroom floor was extremely hot. I would not recommended renting from this property management company.
This guest received a group text check in stating the fees involved and it shows on the price we have not charged a prep or clean fee and its not paid. I was not rude on the phone but stearn about the fact it was not paid and we can ask her to leave and give all her money back....no problem our contact states this also . We do not make the beds they have fresh sheets on the corner of the beds so you know they are fresh if you want them made you can work that out with the check in person as with most of our places. When they arrived it was not on time as texted in the arrival time responded to emails and paid the prep check in cash fee as its not billed in your charges and set to only .10 cents indication that we did not charge it...however we can add it if needed for institutions but prefer to have you pay prep check in person directly as they work for you preparing your place and not us, so if you see a problem they can handle it on the spot at check in or come bank if necessary:)
We love our Great guests that realize the cleain is not free and someone has to do this for all vacation rentals stays and we do not charge it but have it paid upon arrival with a person to look after any issues you might have and we always offer a 5 star review exchange that gets you perks, like free early check in and lake check out if available! Your 5 star review exchange also gets you discounts for return visits and $50 for referrals that book from your referral for a credit for your next stay. We have discounts on our limousine transportation and other 50 vacation rentals and free concierge app dezzi. We have a email check in information and group text check with our team in for any issues that might arise. (so let us know by text or call and we will have it taken care of on the spot, don't wait and then let us know as we cannot know everything about a place or any problems until its reported ...then its fixed..)
We also typically have a check in person to meet you onsite if you need anything or have a request for concierge fun things to do. This place is a log cabin and not a mansion but we have mansions and islands so if you want a huge bathroom to hang out in then we offer that and they have more options with 2-3 ac systems so look at what you want to rent pleas
We have a real estate company Boardwalk Realty and Management and will find you a place to buy or rent or rent your place also.
We look forward to your stay with us at any of our locations Frank Roberts 4rentus
We needed a large house for a family reunion. This had the space we needed and we all had a great time!!!! It is very private, but the highway is close and can be heard clearly. Private from people, but doesn’t have the natural nature feel outside due to the street noise. But the grounds are lovely and there’s lots of space to run around and create memories.
Some things in the house needed repair, but it’s a cottage, no one was expecting a vacation luxury house.
Our family always camped growing up, but we wanted AC and beds this time. So if you want privacy, AC, and space for lots of people to stay under one roof, this is your place! We hope to return in 2 years for our next reunion!
Thanks for your stay as we have a great place for fun groups that enjoy a Log Cabin on the water. We have a fun location in a great area close to all the great options the Tri cities have to offer...musical fountain, pier, waterfront home and the 3 beaches nearby. We cannot change the highway location but it's great for a access and most guests never mention it as its covered by trees. We had talked a few times about adding the 12 person rental travel trailer and the mini lodge and we have other locations near for options.
I'm not sure you had needed transportation but we have that at our services for 30 years DADDS MAGIC BUS AND LIMOUSINE for your return trip.
The group text we share prior to and throughout our stay with maintenance and the owner works great for communication during your stay for any issues that may arise and appeared to have no issues and does the job.
We also have a seperate email to let you know about things on your arrival and one more option for communication.
Thanks for your stay we look forward to your return to any of our 50 locations. See our most requested Campau Heaven on Homeaway #155529 sleeps 54 plus with a house next door sleeps 60 and swim spa, hot tubs a great waterfront, kayaks and more fun.
Thanks Frank Roberts 4rentus
not what we were expecting.
Not able to convers in a normal voice due to freeway noise. Pots and pans and bowls inadequate for feeding more than 4. Beds were not made. At 2am we found a stack of linens in a closet and had to unfold and sort for size. Bathrooms inadequate for 16 people. Washer water very hot. Found hoses crossed. Landscape covered by ants. Living room door to porch would not open. Needed it for ventilation. Could not open any windows for ventilation due to being covered by plastic. Upper loft very hot. About 1/3 of all lights were not working. Bobby fixed some, we bought bulbs for more. The oven door handle was broken, I fixed that with JB weld. The bed frame off the living room is broken and propped up on a box. No hot water in the upstairs bathroom sink. Found it turned off underneath because the upper handle would not close. Was told by Frank "please use the handle that allows the sink water to flow that you found shut off. There are other sink options available in the house at this point . Please enjoy the rest of this blessed day."
Did you know this was going on in your rentals? I wouldn't spend another day there if it was free.
This customer had the property owners maintenace guy over 5 times for bogus issues and was very rude and tormenting the maintenance guy called him a low life and more names that you could imagine. The people in this world that downgrade people and torment others will burn in the belonging place. That is this guy...he tormented me on the text also ...about bees, and ants and mosquitos anything outside was very annoying to him and any little thing inside was a problem...his family said he is like that! This should be removed Bobby the maintenance guy aims to please and tried but it was not going to happen!
Very bad renter beware!
It was good
Overpriced For What You Actually Get
We had a group of 15 people heading to Michigan for Memorial Day weekend. This property seemed promising being on 4 acres of land and the lake. We did have a good time. However, I wouldn't recommend it at this price point and would be cautious of additional fees.
The cleaning fee was not included in the VRBO rental process, but it was said it would be due later and showed a minimum amount. When the time came to get the property rental details (address, check-in information, etc) nothing was listed on the VRBO site. I called the property manager and he explained that I was supposed to receive a text but hadn't. When I did get the text, it was very long and explained that the the cleaning fee would be much more money than the minimum earlier stated. On top of that, they wanted to me to, upon check-in provide a photo of my ID and my credit card, front and back. The reason I go through sites 3rd party sites like VRBO is so that someone I don't know does not get direct access to my personal information. We ultimately paid cash, and more than I'd have liked given the property was not as clean or prepared as I would have wanted it to be for the price.
Included, from the VRBO description, was a mini-lodge on the property. Upon arriving we were told this was not cleaned out and to have done so would have been an additional cost (on top of what we just paid in cash). When we looked at it, there was patio furniture scattered everywhere and did not look like the photos on VRBO. Within the main house, in the downstairs recreation room was a refrigerator that we could not use because there was mold inside it, including a bag of rotten meat.
The first night, when I sat on my bed, (sat not jumped) the mattress fell through the frame. When I texted the manager I was told this bed had been broken in the past. I spent the weekend on a mattress on the floor. Nobody was able to figure out how to get the steam room to work.
This property has potential and there is lots of space. However, the management transparency was not great. I have stayed at much nicer properties for much lower costs (all of which were included upfront when I booked through VRBO).
We dont want any poor reviews and cannot keep everyone happy.
We have a group text check in to keep any concerns in front of at least 3 sets of eyes, to quickly remedy any concerns like these notes after the stay.
This way a simple text right st your fingertips can quickly get our team to dispatch a cleaner. Which by the way is the check in person.
This way any cleaning issues are typically resolved on the spot and the cleaning person responsible for cleaning is there first hand to take care of them then.
This way all issues can be resolved rather than wait and complain after we have 2 steps to resolve issues immediately.
I sure wish these steps had been used by this customer.
Simply because we like happy customers and owners and cleaners.
We also demand information upon arrival it's the law. Just like a hotel requirement we are allowing you to stay in a house a owner owns. Your information is private and the owner wants to protect his house.
Seems like a fair trade off and it's a investment of a few minutes to secure the owners property.
I hope we can improve on our cleaning and the message was sent to the owner and cleaner.
Thanks for the feedback please use the text upon arrival to resolve issues immediately.
We have 75 other properties with other cleaners and owners please visit those and we will give you $100 off for your inconvenience.
We also have a limousine service that we will give you $100 off if you can use that in the future.
