Beautiful view, dishonest homeowner
As parents to 3 little boys my husband and I were very excited to have our first kid free getaway in 5 years! As soon as we saw this property we were drawn to the amazing deck and the breathtaking views, however, we were hesitant with the possibility of someone being above us so before booking my husband called Andrea. She checked the calendar and told us no one was scheduled to be there and assured us it would be no problem at all to mark it on the calendar to leave the upstairs vacant so we would have the place to ourselves. When we arrived the day of our trip, we were greeted by Stan. He was very kind and welcoming, but he informed us that he and Andrea would be staying in the house above us. We were clearly confused by this and reminded him we booked this rental under the agreement there would not be anybody above us, he said they were going camping tomorrow. After he left, we discussed how disappointed we were with the situation. My husband went upstairs to further discuss it and ask for a refund as this is not what we agreed upon. He voiced his disappointment with them not following their agreement and Andrea became completely unhinged. She was very angry and began screaming and slamming doors. She accused my husband of sneaking around their place because he knocked on their front door and told him she did not trust us being their because we asked for privacy. Stan remained calm and professional but Andrea was completely unprofessional and at this point neither of us wanted to stay in this hostile environment but she refused to refund our money. It was so uncomfortable. With no other options we hoped they were being honest and would go camping and we would have privacy at least one night but they did not. They were there the entire weekend. The entire reason we wanted this rental was the deck and we felt so uncomfortable we didn't want to sit outside. We could hear them walking upstairs, when they took showers etc. It felt very much like being in someone's basement with no privacy. The one thing we wanted on vacation, we didn't get. We very much felt like they were there to keep an eye on us. It was a very uncomfortable experience and after a decade of renting on VRBO with zero negative experiences, it was highly disappointing. This listing is very misleading, it is basically renting a walk out basement of an occupied home with zero privacy from an unprofessional, dishonest owner that clearly lives in this home full time.
Very relaxing experience with beautiful views of Beaver Lake.
My husband and I came for our 1st anniversary. It is beautiful. The cabin area is part of the main house that the owners stay in and we were a little nervous about this but, we completely forgot they were there. They let you enjoy your time together and you never even know they are there. The road getting to the house is very sharp so I wouldn't take a large vehicle or a trailer. We would definitely recommend this house and stay here again if we are wanting to stay in the area.
We had a great time, nice little place to stay on vacation. Everything was just as it was listed and owners are super nice!
Family had a great time and hope to go back again in the future.
The deck has a very nice view of the lake.
Everything was fine.
Great place to relax and not far from the excitement of downtown Eureka Springs!
My husband and I enjoyed our stay! The place is quiet and secluded. There are great views of the lake and the recreation area of Beaver Lake, Starkey, is only a mile down the road. The place was clean and homey. The owners are great! A great getaway for couples!
We are located close to the end of Mundell Rd......just a couple of minutes to Starkey's Marina where you can rent a boat! There are also multiple boat slips in the area if you would like to bring your own.
