Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely and a wonderful restful retreat from our busy lives. It's very quiet and the pool is an absolutely gorgeous place to cool off enjoy after a day of sightseeing. You don't want to bother cooking in this town of great restaurants. Relax

Pretty property, but plan on eating out unless you bring your own cook ware.

  • 2 of 5

I stay in properties at least 3 times a year, and this was the first time I was not able to cook because this place only had one small sauce pan, and one very small frying pan. There wasn't even a spatula if you had the pans to cook in, and no baking sheets. I am also usually supplied with salt/pepper and many times other spices, but there was nothing like that. There wasn't a sponge to clean with even if I had been able to cook. There was only one TV in the master bedroom, and that TV was controlled by an XBOX contoller and was not hooked up to cable. It was connected to Netflix though. However, I like watching the news, and I am not familiar with using XBOX as a TV conttoller, so basically it was like there was no TV for me. It had not been cleaned very well either. The blinds were very dusty and all of the outdoor furniture had alot of leaves and debris on them. I can understand a few, but you could tell these leaves had been there long enough to fade and leave their imprint on the outdoor furniture. It was too dirty to lounge on. The table on the patio out back had spill stains as well. The backyard is very pretty, and the property is close to campus, so that was a plus. I would not return though; I choose VRBO properties so I can cook and don't have to eat out. Cooking was not an option here. Not having a TV in the main living area is odd too.

Nice home with beautiful landscaping

  • 3 of 5

This home provided us with an enjoyable stay in an quiet environment with beautiful backyard landscaping. It is a lovely home that has not been painted inside for quite a few years. The home needs some serious maintenance and cleaning (can write my name on the dust on shutters). The kitchen was large but with VERY minimal accessories, one pot, one pan, and only 2 adult sized forks; all silverware were mismatched. The home instructions stated that use of laundry was at your own risk because the washer does not always drain. After seeing the washer and dryer, we decided to use a laundromat because the w/d were in horrible condition. The pool and hot tub are beautiful, but it would have been nice to know before we arrived that we could not use the pool! The instructions to the hot tub were not easy to figure out, so we did not use either! On one occasion, we decided to try the hot tub, but the water was too low to risk compromising the jets. On the last night, the master bed collapsed while we slept on it because the foot board separated in the middle. I have no idea if the TV (older tube TV) worked, because it was hidden away in the corner of the front great room where you would not have wanted to use it anyway. The master suite had a flat screen TV, but we didn't use it either. The linens (towels) were horribly mismatched and my wife found a large piece of sheetrock on her bath towel after using it!

This home worked for us ONLY because we didn't spend much time there.
