Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

The home had a very strong musty/mildew smell in the living room. We had hoped this would dissipate but after 3 days with the windows open it was still very strong. The bathroom tub was rust stained and paint chips were literally falling from the ceiling. If I were a college student, the place would have been fine, but being in the 50+ group I found it to be extremely disappointing. I don't know if these problems were due to it being early in the rental season (late March) but quite frankly we wouldn't stay here again even if it was free.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear that the reviewer had a poor experience. The fact that the review is anonymous is quite telling. It is early in the rental season and, most importantly, it is early in the year where the area does get a lot of rain and snow. Therefore, keeping the windows open for 3 days probably contributed to the mildew smell. Considering that Princeton is a college town, the reviewer is absolutely correct that it is more appropriate for a college aged student traveller.

Could Have Been Better

  • 3 of 5

A nice, small, two story house. Owner very responsive to texts and email. House was clean. It's in a quiet neighborhood, so noise isn't a problem. Off-street parking for one vehicle. Wired & wireless Internet. Unfortunately, we were there during transition from cool to warm weather. There was only one small air conditioner downstairs, so the upstairs was very, very warm at night. After the first night, we bought a 20" box fan. This made it just barely manageable sleeping upstairs the next two nights. Several upstairs windows wouldn't open or stay open, so getting a cross-breeze to cool the bedrooms wasn't so easy. Owner says she installed window ac units upstairs after we left, but they were definitely needed for our visit. This could have been a comfortable stay, but it wasn't.

Perfect setup for Family of 4 - Great Location in Princeton!

  • 4 of 5

Nothing fancy. An older home, with the basic necessities and clean and in good working order. This house suited us well. The WiFi was useful for checking in at work and helped augment a poor cell signal. Our 2 young boys loved the really nice flat screen TV with cable! (this was a vacation treat as it is not an amenity we have at home). If the TV was not there, we may have enjoyed more time outside as the neighborhood is lovely. The property is walking distance to schools and wide open spaces and the people in the neighborhood were friendly. If you listen carefully, you can even hear some music coming from the Westminster Choir College adjacent the property. We could walk to the grocery store - McCaffreys (15 minutes) or a short few minute drive. The air conditioners (window units) came in handy and provided extra comfort. Speaking of comfort - the whole family commented on the nice sheets. The owner was so helpful providing information promptly & answering my questions leading to our visit. And we were pleasantly greeted us upon our arrival. We had a delayed flight, and the owner was understanding and accommodating. Next time we are in Princeton to visit family, we will look to stay here again.

Nice little Princeton location

  • 4 of 5

This is a really nice little house. You wouldn't say it by just looking at the outside, but once inside, it had a complete homey feel. Close to Princeton downtown and University. I do a lot of traveling and the hotels grow old quick. Sleeps 2-4, clean and has Dish and internet. Owner was responsive and on time. Thumbs up

We enjoyed our stay very much

  • 4 of 5

The house is clean and comfortable.

It's great for 2 adults and 2 children.

It's perfectly located very near Princeton center.

Helen received us very nicely.

She prepared a few water bottles in the fridge for us, soap in the bathroom.

We had a great holiday!

Owner's Response: Elizabeth and family are very nice people. They communicated with us very good and checked in on time. Before they checked out, they cleaned the room and put all the used sheets and towels into the laundry room. They emptied all of the garbage cans, refrigerator and kitchen cabinet. Our house was clean and neat, when they left. It was our pleasure to host Elizabeth's family.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Owners were very accommodating and the home is well set up for extended visits: washer/dryer, pots/pans, wifi, cable TV, A/C, etc. Well located: can walk to Nassau Street and also to McCaffrey's for groceries. Great option for Princeton.
