About Christine Arleo

I built this home next our family home and restored the original family home. I love the peace and serenity of my properties and enjoy seeing others do the same.

Christine Arleo purchased this house in 2007

My wife and have rented many houses in the past this one is what we expect clean, comfortable and cozy. Very convenient to stores and restaurants and a short drive to the mountain. Owners of the home Christine and Robert couldn't be more accommodating. We had 4 adults and 6 teenagers and had plenty of room and had a great time.I would definitely recommend this home for anyone who is looking to get away to the Catskills.

A Perfect Country Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to enjoy a vacation in the Catskills. This is the first time I booked on VRBO and I had a really positive experience. I went up for the weekend of the Hunter Mountain Country Festival in June and we had a total of 5 adults and one teenager. The upstairs had 3 bedrooms and two the bottom of the stairs on the first floor was the third bathroom and there was another bedroom off the living room. This charming house was exactly as pictured on-line and the owners, Christine and Robert were great hosts and so accommodating, friendly, informative and professional...we got in before check-in time on Friday and we were able to check in right away. It was also a bonus that they live right next door so if we ever had a question it was so easy and convenient to ask about things in the house, local restaurant recommendations, etc. The house was clean, well maintained and I loved the dé really felt like a home away from home with a real country feel.....I especially loved the quilts. Not to mention the wireless worked great and there was a nice big TV in the living room where everyone could relax. Can't wait to book for next year's Country Music Festival. BTW, our security checked was mailed promptly within two weeks after our departure.

Clean house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend skiing at Hunter in early March with a group of 6 adults. The house could easily fit 8 with a bedroom for each - and 3 bathrooms was a plus! It was clean, warm and spacious. In a great location for skiing, eating out and exploring the town. The owner left a binder with any and all information that you could need. We would definitely stay again.

Lovely little home! It was very clean and true to the pictures online. Great location - proximity to the mountain and bars. Loved the fire place and the outside patio! Plenty of board games stocked in the house for your to enjoy. Homeowners were very helpful and accommodating! Clean, seamless transaction. Thanks for a great trip!

Cozy, quaint, and very clean

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in this house for a weekend with 10 people, however two in my group had to sleep on the pullout couch, which we already knew before going in but for this reason, I'd say it's perfect for 8 people instead. We were there for skiing and the drive to the mountain was not far at all. Maybe about a 10 minute drive. There are restaurants and bars close to the area.

When we walked in, the house was very clean. One of the cleanest homes I've ever rented. The kitchen was fully equiped with everything we needed and we did a lot of cooking that weekend. The only reason I'm giving it a 4 star and not a 5 star rating is because there were no pets allowed and I happen to be very attached to my dog, who I had to leave behind. But otherwise, this property gets a 5 star rating. The owners were very nice when we spoke. But everything just ran very smoothly so we didn't really need to contact them for many concerns while we were there.

Renter Beware!

  • 1 of 5

This house is truly lovely. We were 4 couples in our 50s renting for the weekend. This was our first time renting a house through the internet. Upon returning to our respective homes, we found out that we were being blamed for broken kitchen tiles (that we noticed were cracked upon arrival.) As a result, our deposit was not returned. Any renters should inspect for damage upon arrival and take pictures and notify the owners. Never assume that the owners are aware of damage on their property! We made that mistake. This experience has left a bitter taste.

Owner's Response: The renters are not being completely transparent on the rental of our home. We are completely aware of the condition of our home and take great pride in our home. We were actually at our neighboring property that weekend and we were in the home several days immediately before they arrived as well as our housekeeper was in the home. When our home is not being rented we are in the home inspecting and updating the home. The renters cracked 6 tiles and ruined our kitchen floor. (We immediately replaced the whole kitchen floor). See our updated pictures. We rent VRBO homes frequently and as with any where we would stay if we saw any damage that seemed “out of character for the whole home” we would immediately notify the owners or management. The renters saw us throughout the weekend and even asked many questions of us. However they neglected to notify us of the problems with the tile. They left us a note upon their departure and mentioned the cracked tiles there. We immediately sent them an email with the pictures notifying them that they would be responsible for the damage they created.
