Location is the only positive
There is a reason why the owner doesn't have many pictures in the listing. This place needs a ton of work. The railings on both entrances of the front porch are not fully attached to the house, so my 5yr old fell off the porch and badly scraped his leg after leaning up against it. The rail ultimately fell off altogether on the west side.The sink in the west side kitchen clogged for no apparent reason and we had to make a late night trip to the store to purchase a plunger and draino to fix it. We tried to first remove the pea trap under the sink but were unable to do so as someone had caulked it. Faucet handles installed backwards, no lock on the east side bathroom door. Mold in the caulk around sinks and showers. Games missing pieces, holes in walls. Bunk bed frame not properly installed and fell apart when someone in our group tried to get in the bed to sleep. Strong musty odor throughout that seems to originate in the basement. Seems like minimal effort was put in to basically slap some lipstick on in order to charge high rates. It's like paying for a fancy resort but getting a rundown Motel 6. Contacted the owner to notify him of the main problems of the railings and sink clog and he didn't bother to respond. By far the worst experience i've ever had at a vacation rental. I would definitely steer clear of this place.
Location is great and lots of space, but that’s about it. Not what we were expecting. One unit was clean, the other was not. The unclean unit had hair on the bed sheets, ants crawling through the floor and stained sheets. For the price, not worth it. There was only a toddler bike to be found. This “castle” is very old and shows its age.
Great Location and Extremely Clean
My family rented both sides of the Castle and it could not have worked out better. I did not realize that there were rear doors to each side that allowed a flow (inside) from one side to the other. For a family with grown children and a grandchild staying in the Castle allowed us to have a "family" vacation. The rooms were clean and the neighborhood is great for walking around. Would not hesitate to stay there again. Plus, Andrew is a terrific communicator.
Met our needs
Overall, we had a great stay and enjoyed our visit to Coeur d'Alene. The duplex was nothing fancy, but was comfortable and clean. The furnishings were pretty sparse, but we made do. Our favorite part of the place was the outdoor grill and picnic tables. This allowed for our group to eat together and visit, since the indoor space was pretty bare. While there were two dryers, neither worked very well. I let Andrew know this at the end of our stay, so I'm sure he'll make sure this is taken care of.
Cute, convenient duplex in a quiet area ofvtown
We absolutely loved Couer d’alane! And this place was convenient to walking everywhere. We enjoyed walking to the park and walking to Sherman street to the restaurants. Walking through the neighborhoods and a cute little park... just took a few minutes. Or if you feel lazy jump in your car for a very short drive. We also walked to the Natyral Grocers. Parking is limited to 2 hours in town or pay to park at the lake so we rather walk so our time wasn’t limited... b/c they do patrol and ticket. But if you rent a bike up at the bike shop they’ll let you park in their lot... which I recommend renting a bike and riding down to a Higgins dock... beautiful! Also donTubbs hike in the park. Then rent kayaks or SUPs and get out around Tubbs and stop at the beaches for a swim. Drive around the lake and stop at Shooters on the lake for lunch or dinner! If you have time drive to Kellogg to Siler Springs Ski Area. Living at ski areas for 20 years in CO ... this was a throwback in time. Very friendly old school ski area with a golf course, water park, biking, hiking etc.
A great stay!
This duplex was perfect for 2 families. We were able to connect when we needed to but have privacy when it was time for that too. The house was clean and conveniently located just a short drive to the lake, shopping, grocery stores etc. It would have been nice to have off the street parking in the back but all in all a great place in Couer d'Alene.
Enjoy the great location of the Garden District. Within walking distance of all the best attractions! Everything that Coeur d Alene has to offer is nearby! Dining, Pubs, Coeur d' Alene resort Golf Course, beach, public parks, basketball courts, baseball diamonds, running trails, hiking trails, cliff diving, boat launch, fly-fishing, canoe/kayak rentals, parasailing, playground equipment, grocery, public transport to casinos, Silver Wood theme park.
