About Maria

This was my home before I got married. We have had this house as a VRBO rental since 2012 now. My parents live 3 blocks from the house.

Maria purchased this house in 2006

Why Maria chose Tulsa

I lived in this home for 5 years and remodeled most of the house. We decided to rent as a vacation rental due to its great location in Tulsa. It is close to the Fairgrounds/Expo Center (1 block away), University of Tulsa, Cherry Street and Brookside. This house is perfect for someone working remotely, as it come complete with a wireless printer, desk and internet setup! Also, those with babies, we have a crib, travel pack n play and glider rocker in the nursery for your convenience.

This has been a VRBO property since 2012 and we have 2 repeat renters that have rented every year. We have had several rent multiple stays.

What makes this house unique

1 block from the Fairgrounds and Ford Horse Arena (Gate 7).

3 minute drive to the University of Tulsa

8-10 minute drive to the Airport

Great location; home could use a good cleaning/updating

  • 2 of 5

We rented this home for the close proximity to Expo Square. The location is perfect; beds were comfortable; air conditioning worked well; and it was nice to have a kitchen and laundry. I was disappointed in the overall condition of the simply was not clean. I removed cobwebs from the ceilings in most rooms. On arrival the garbage cans were not emptied and there was food left in freezer. There was a molded/used coffee filter in the coffee maker. We changed three of four burnt out light bulbs in the bathroom vanity. A ceiling fan did not work and the fan light globes are missing. The bath tub needs a good scrubbing as does the inside of refrigerator. The laundry area needs an overhaul (a pc of broken fishing pole is the pull chain for the light/knob on dryer is majorly duct-taped). We listened to a leak in the bathroom for the entire stay although the owner did try repeatedly to remedy this issue. The television runs through the internet/streaming and if you're not familiar with that it will also be a frustration. The owner was easy to work with, pleasant, and responsive to my inquiries. I would stay again and recommend to others but at a reduced rate.

Owner's Response: UPDATE we hired a new housekeeping service (Aug '16)she said our bathtub is older porcelain. We will reglaze it eventually but it is not dirt, it is clean. We will leave contact information for our guests with the housekeeper's number if you are unhappy. We do not leave a dirty house for our guests and pay more to have it cleaned than our cleaning fee, which we waived for you and charged you a reduced rate. Getting blasted on a review vs being made aware so we can verify the condition and either correct or change service providers is a big difference. I was surprised by your review as you never expressed concern with the cleanliness of the home to me. We pay for a housekeeper . I will be addressing this concern and had we known I would have offered to send the cleaner out to remedy any issue. For future tenants please know we hire housekeeping and the home will be CLEAN! We will be adjusting some checks we have on the home as well but can't verify a unkept condition unless made aware of it. We have 3 repeat clients that book our home every year and have for 4 years in a row. We gain repeat clients every year. I believe that is due to a clean home with a responsive owner. I pride myself on that so your concerns expressed will all be addressed. Our listing states that the house is equipped with Chromecast and Internet so this should not have been a surprise. This home was originally built in 1941 and we have remodeled most of it including replacing the HVAC in 2013 at a high cost to us. At that time we decided to purchase a home warranty to hopefully help with future issues that come with an older home. When we tried to utilize the warranty for the leak, they sent out a plumber that tried to charge us for items that were fraudulent and denied coverage because the pipes would have to be upgraded. We were upset with that so we hired our own plumber and they had to reschedule due to a major storm that came through Tulsa during your stay. You were in our home a week so we worked as fast as we could. We cancelled the warranty and will just hire our own service contractors in the future. We ultimately fixed the issue the next week when our plumber had availability just after you left. It wasn't a quick fix, our bill totaled over $500 to replace pipes. I also kept you apprised of the repair process the entire time. I just booked our home to a repeat client for June 2017, so we will continue to improve and provide our guests with a pleasurable stay.

Location Location Location!

You absolutely cannot beat the location if you are attending an event at the Expo Square Fairgrounds. We attended Color Breed Congress and spent 9 nights in this lovely home. So incredibly convenient being so close to the horses! Maria was easy to reach when we had questions along the way, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay a second time. Thank you!

Horse Show Necessity!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in this home. Beds were comfortable and air conditioning was fabulous during the muggy June rains. Laundry facilities and kitchen add much to the convenience of having the whole family at a two week horse show. I have already requested reservations for PWC 2016.

Acessible, easy, and fun!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Tulsa for 5 weeks (work related), and housing was hard to come by. We were so glad to find this place. Maria was really accessible and responsive. Her dad, who manages the house itself, was close by and very willing to work with us as needed. Overall, the experience was really fun! We grilled a lot in the spacious backyard and we were so close to downtown and all of the fun, up and coming eateries. This was a really great place to stay.

Great two month stay in midtown Tulsa!

  • 5 of 5

Maria was a terrific landlord, easily accessible and fixed any problems almost immediately. House is very cute and comfortable and it was well stocked with anything we could have needed (cleaning supplies, dishes, towels, etc.). We chose this house based on the comfortable living room décor and the whole house was well decorated, we would not have hesitated to bring friends over to visit. Neighborhood is friendly and we got to know several neighbors by name during our stay. We felt totally safe and comfortable walking through the neighborhood in the evenings and waving hi to others walking or gardening. There is also a terrific, large backyard and front porch for warm summer/fall evenings or cooking out on the grill. And it's location meant pretty much everything was only a fifteen minute drive away, with Target, Reasor's grocery store and almost a dozen restaurants within a mile.

I would definitely stay again!

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 2 other media representatives for the bass fishing industry stayed at this house for the Bassmaster Classic. It's was clean, nice and very comfortable. It's in a nice quiet area, I don' think we saw another person in the area all week.

It's in a great location in terms of getting around Tulsa as well. It's literally walking distance to the expo/fairgrounds. It is about 5-7 minutes from the convention center and only about 3-4 miles from the airport.

I would recommend this place to anyone looking for somwhere to stay in Tulsa!
