Enjoyed the Stay with Minor Issues
The house and house layout was great and the extra things, such as the pool, pool table and ping pong table, made our stay more pleasant when were at the house. The house can accommodate a good size family gathering and I would consider staying here again when in Marathon after some clarifications. In my opinion, the property still required additional work to completely make the property ready for rental, but was usable if advertised appropriately.
There were some issues that were a concern during the week-long stay. We had no procedure in advance to know how to check in and fortunately arrived while workers were at the house to gain access. Some workmanship on some interior things such as installation of curtains and pictures were substandard and required unnecessary attention during our holiday. Responses to concerns or issues were slow and infrequent. It took us until the 3rd day to obtain the Wi-Fi password which was an issue for the older kids.
There were workers on the property daily working on things. However, the workers were exceptionally friendly and we had no concern with that other than there were many people on the property that we didn't know. Apparently, the owner stays, at least during the week we were there, in the room above the garage (garage building is not part of the rental, but is part of the property) and moves vehicles in and out of the garage regularly. Others residing and working on the property should have been included in the advertising of this rental. Since the garage is not part of the rental all of our bicycles and other gear were left on the unsecured bottom floor where one individual was wondering on the property near the area and promptly left when he was noticed. Because of the number of people that were constantly on the property, it was difficult to know if he should be there.
Finally, it was difficult to understand why the house is rented as a 5 or 6 bedroom house. We rented the 5 bedroom house. Although we could have used the 6th bedroom, it was not worth an additional $75 per night. All the bedrooms were nice and are part of the main house and we just kept the 6th bedroom door shut. Also, all the bedrooms were set up for couples (one king/queen beds), but we had several kids from different families. It would be recommended that bunk beds or other bedroom set up in at least one bedroom to accommodate kids would be very useful if the owner desires to rent to families.
