Older home, nice decor and well stocked kitchen.

  • 3 of 5

Overall this was an OK place to stay. But the driveway entrance was weird and tricky to maneuver. Also, the bathrooms need to be updated. Shorten the huge shower curtain so we don't trip on it in the upstairs bathtub. The painting was nice colors but some TLC is needed. Thanks for the stay.

Cute old house, unexpected damages claim

  • 2 of 5

There weren't a lot of listings available for downtown Salt Lake but we wanted somewhere to stay for our anniversary, not a hotel room, so I booked this. The house is nice, the exterior is old like most of the houses downtown, but it has personality and seems clean enough. We weren't in the house much other than sleeping and breakfast, but it did the job and wasn't too expensive.

Then I got a notice from the renter's insurance people claiming damage to plates, a chair, the wall, pillows, etc. We are very tidy people and there were only two of us grown adults, so I'm confident we didn't cause any damage. We sat in three chairs for probably a grand total of thirty minutes combined, and barely touched anything aside from the bathrooms and kitchen. We're kind of known for our minimal impact, and we try hard not to break stuff. Especially not pillows. I happen to like pillows, and I'm not really sure how you'd damage them other than to tear them, unless maybe we forgot to fluff them or something and leaving them folded is considered damaging.

Anyway, I'm probably going to avoid this renter in the future because I don't believe they are honest in their post-stay assessments, and I don't want to end up on the hook for something I most definitely didn't do.

Great accomodations, but very resticted in how we were expected to live.

  • 3 of 5

The facility was fine and sleeping accommodations were fine. The extreme examples of "counting" everything from silverware to glasses and all of the restrictions including "do not unplug" or there will be a $100 fine. All drawers and cupboards had counts and locations for every piece of silverware and glasses, mugs, bowels, and pots and pans. Other than a few spices on the counter, there were no basic staples to allow for any meal preparations. We were unable to prepare a meal as we would have to have purchased all necessary ingredients to include sugar, flour, and other basic ingredients that have always been provided at the many other VRBO facilities we have rented. It really felt restrictive and prevented our group from staying in for meals. One of the reasons that one rents from VRBO. We just felt that you should not disturb anything as everything was restricted to and including the amount of paper towels we could use. Even though the house was in a good location and was large and spacious, we would not rent again.
