Good but not great.

  • 2 of 5

The house all in all was fine. However it was overrated in my opinion. The upstairs window unit stopped working the night we arrived, the upstairs bathtub was incredibly slow to drain, the ceiling fan in the main room didn't work, the toilet seat in one of the upstairs bathrooms was broken, and other small things we found were disappointing. There were basically only two rooms in the house which were cool enough to be in especially later in the day when it was warmest outside.

We enjoyed the woods and many trails close by and in general, Pinetop was nice.

Dave was very responsive to emails leading up to our stay and I appreciated his communication. However, for the price of the rental, I would have hoped/expected it to be in better condition and a more comfortable stay.

Owner's Response: Jonathan, very sorry for those things being missed and thanks for letting us know. My cleaning crew took care of the drain and the ac unit just needed the filter cleaned. Will get the fan and the toilet seat fixed asap. Yes, the house gets a little warm in June before the monsoon's kick in, it is the only time of the year that it gets too warm up there. As far as value is concerned I believe we are the lowest cost for a 4 bedroom in the Pinetop Area on VRBO.

Great weekend out of the heat

  • 5 of 5

We come to this area every July and have rented a few different places, this is our favorite so far. It may need a little updating, but this was a great location with plenty of room for our group of 12. Having four bathrooms was especially helpful, we never ran out of hot water, and the window AC units in the upstairs rooms were a nice addition. David was quick to respond when we couldn't get the lockbox open (operator error). Beds are a bit on the firm side (which we know is a matter of personal preference, can't please everyone when it comes to beds), we are glad we bring our memoryfoam topppers when we travel by car. We will definitley be booking again!

Nice location with lots of room

  • 4 of 5

We had a mini family vacation over the 4th of July weekend. We had 6 adults and 8 young children. We loved being so close to the forest, both out front and in the back yard, but easy to get to. The best thing was how much space there was - plenty of bedding and bathrooms for everyone. The house could use a little upgrading, but it worked fine for us. We did have some Wifi issues, but David was willing to work with us regarding this. Owners were very responsive to requests and concerns.

Big bear cabin

  • 5 of 5

2015 came to show low for a tournament and decided for this year I would rent a cabin and bring the family. Mr K was extremely helpful in making this all possible for us. This cabin was awesome, plenty of room for everybody. It is in a prime location close to everything but has the feel of a cabin in the woods. The kids enjoyed everything the cabin had to offer and the older folks did as well. Even the casino that is 20 minutes away. I would recommend if your looking for a place to enjoy some well deserved time away from the city and heat, this is place where you need to be. (Big bear cabin). Thank you Mr K for a wonderful Memorial Day

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families and rented the house to share -- 4 adults, 4 kids. The property was great. Lots of space for everyone and having a separate TV area for the kids was wonderful. It was also great to have so many bathrooms!! The owner was very responsive, and we would definitely rent this house again.
