NOT as described...misleading and my car was vandalized!
NOT as described...misleading and my car was vandalized!
We booked this cabin for a last minute get away. The cabin is decorated nicely and we loved the amenities as if you were staying in a hotel. However, numerous things that are listed for the cabin are misleading and inaccurate. On the vrbo website it is advertised as "in the heart of downtown" it should state its in the middle of commercial buildings. That way people can have a clear understanding that there are people walking by and busy and not a cabin in the woods kinda feel. It is directly next door to the diner and the nursery parking lot. Then there was the issue on the wireless. They had listed that it had wireless, which it doesn't. We read the sign in the cabin that states wireless is available in the pool and resort area. They also had listed on this site 1 queen and 1 bunk. The bed in the room was not a queen, it was a double/full bed and not a very comfortable one.The bunk room also has a door in it that leads out to the side of the house which is also the parking lot for a nursery. We had a concern of safety having our kids sleep in there. I feel like there were some big discrepancies about what was listed online and what the cabin actually had. Which would be fine as long as people knew what they were getting and the price matched the amenities. Our car was also vandalized the 2nd night. We woke up in the morning and our brand new car had been egged. I have been a long time visitor of Twain Harte, for over 30 years and have never seen any vandalism. Or rented a cabin that was so falsely advertised. I emailed the contact hoping they would rectify the problems we experienced or offer some sort of compensation and basically received a "sorry" and nothing else was addressed.

Owner response: Dear Mrs., I am sorry to see that your stay in Twain Harte was less than satisfactory, however, I must also respond to your "misleading" comments regarding our cabin...First of all, the cabin IS "in the heart of downtown Twain Harte". Twain Harte, as you must know after 30 years, is a very small town, comprised of businesses, shops, and restaurants. Our cabin is located next to a small bakery/coffee shop, across the street from a popular restaurant, and next door to the community post office, not the parking lot of a nursery as you have stated. Most of our guests love the fact that they can watch the town's activity from their front deck, and also be within walking distance to everything else. Nothing in our advertizing states that this is a cabin tucked away in the trees, even though there are still several large trees around the cabin. The bed description was an admitted error, which we stated to you previously that we would correct, and the internet service should have been "high speed internet", not "wireless". For a cup of coffee, however, the cafe next store would have happily supplied you with their wireless password that would have worked at the cabin. Our statement that wireless was available at the pool and Resort area was true. With your cabin rental in Twain Harte, you have the ability to use all of the facilities at the Lazy Z Resort, just 2 miles from Twain Harte, including the pool area, clubhouse, and hiking trails on 35 tree filled acres, which offers "wireless" internet service for free. I am not sure why your children felt unsafe in their room. The door to the room is sturdy and secures from the inside. It acts as an additional fire escape door in the case of emergency, since there are only two doors to the whole cabin... You are also misleading by the fact that you insinuated that your car was vandalized because of the cabin location. Your car was obviously a victim of random mischief, especially due to the fact that it was in plain sight of yourself at all times next to the cabin. Just because you are a long time visitor to Twain Harte does not mean that vandalism does not occur, and it certainly isn't a result that had anything to do with the cabin itself. Lastly, you stated all you received was a "sorry" and no other compensation.We did say we were "sorry" you did not enjoy your stay, but you failed to mention that we waived the $50 cleaning fee and also discounted your cabin an additional 10%, which I feel is fair. Thank you
