List of Amenities not accurate
The location is fabulous ! The house is spacious and very bright. It is clean, peaceful and it offers great views of the lake. The beds are very comfy, as is the living room.
But the house doesn't come with everything it says :
1- Wi-Fi : signal is intermittent and weak, so internet is incredibly slow when you finally have it. We had it very sparingly.
2- Netflix wasn’t working : we were asked to sign in for a free month trial and enter our personal email address — which we didn’t do, of course. So there was no Netflix for us during our stay, which was very disappointing.
3- The barbecue (outdoor grill) seemed to be connected to the gas circuit of the house, but we could never make it work. Too bad.
4- The Tassimo coffee machine : same thing (couldn’t make it work).
The house also has a few internal problems :
1- An electric plug in the kitchen (near the main bedroom) would explode regularly within the wall with a loud bang. Then, the lights would shut down, as would the radio receiver in the living room. It would also do it up to 15 times during the night, with the same loud bang, which would wake us up, of course.
2- There is no ventilation system (or fan of any sort) in either of the two bathrooms, so the towels would never dry after our showers. It was very humid in there, with slippery floors.
3- There are no hooks to hang your clothes or towels in the bathrooms, and no small tables or shelves to put your belongings somewhere (like a toothbrush, hairbrush or cosmetics).
4- There were no indications regarding what to do with the garbage (or recycling or composting bags) : where to put them, when (what days) to take them out on the street, etc. (We put everything in the garage.)
In the end :
When we got back home, then we finally DID have internet ! So, we sent an email to the owners to discuss the issues we had to deal with at the house — problems they must have known about. Instead of apologizing and maybe kindly offer a partial refund for our trouble and for the false advertising, the owner said : «Sorry if you did not have the confidence to ask me about those things after the first night » !
In our mind, the various problems we had to face in this house were not to be blamed on our part... Putting the burden of your own errors on your clients back is a funny way of doing business with people...
Anyway, if you want to rent this house, simply know that you may not be getting everything that is listed here, for this property.
After the first night we ask every quest if everything is alright and if they need assistance with something. We did not get any response, so we assumed that everything was fine and we could not support them with the concerns they had.
Regarding the internet speed, we are already getting the fastest connection available in the area.
Probably the last guests used their own Netflix and logged out of our Netflix account. If you would have asked, we would have provided you with our Netflix access.
We would have loved to assist you with the BBQ and the coffee machine, if you would have asked us.
Electric problems should be communicated immediately, so we can act right away.
Our thermostat is set up to maintain a humidity of about 50%. However, towels cannot dry inside, so we offer a washing machine, dryer and a clothesline outside.
The bathroom has three doors, two of them are for entrance and the third one is for the closet. It is a big closet with multiple shelves.
We have two garbage bins in front of the house which are meant to be used for garbage.
We feel that your review is unfair because you did not give us any opportunity to assist you.
Bright beautiful home
We loved this home. So many bedrooms! So much natural light. It was clean and orderly. It was right on the water and we enjoyed sitting out back and watching the sunset. We found it very quiet and peaceful yet close drive to downtown Brighton. We had such a wonderful time. Home owner was quick to reply to all our queries.. I would recommend this home to my family and friends. Brighton was charming with cute shops and great restaurants. Thank you and we hope to visit again!!!
Very nice place to spend a vacation
We had a great time at this property. Lots of space for the family. You do need to bring your own supplies for the kitchen, like sugar, tea etc. We really enjoyed our time.
A very amazing sunset.
