Notes:
Pool Heat is offered as an additional expense. The gas costs to heat the pool 24/7 during the winter months runs between $1200 & $1500 per month. Not every guest is visiting to swim, therefore, we do not assume that everyone wants the added expense. The price to have the pool heated is $50 per day. When making your reservation request, please ask to have pool heat added into your quote. Remember, just because the daytime temperatures are 75 degrees (25 C) the nighttime temperatures dictate the water temperature in the pool. If you decide, after you have already reserved the home, to add pool heat, we can do that after reserved. We ask that you give us at least a week before arrival, so we can have 'pool heat' added to our service calendar during your stay. If you desire pool heat to be turned on once you have arrived, please keep in mind that it may take 12-24 hours to reach 85 degrees. We will invoice you at that time, and the day we turn it on does count as one day. Thank you.

Place has tons of potential but needs LOTS of work!!

  • 2 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay in this property several years ago and it was simply lovely. Therefore, when the chance arose again to stay here we felt confident that we would be just as comfortable and enjoy the same quality of stay. Sadly we were very wrong. The property has been poorly maintained and corners have been cut to a point where it is no longer comfortable or nearly as nicely outfitted as it once once. It seems that work is being done on the home but the unit should not be rented again until all work can be completed.

Some examples of issues are: house stunk TERRIBLY when we arrived, given only 3 towels for 8 days, flooring, which once was lovely and consistent throughout the home, now consists of several different types of floor coverings that don't really match and aren't well done; there are 3 odd random tiles in master bath that match nothing but seem to be an attempt to repair cracked or missing tile; much of new tile in a bedroom, the master and master closet is not even grouted & some of the tiles are even loose; tile dust EVERYWHERE. There is cheap laminate flooring in a large square in the family room area which is in complete contrast with the original lovely hardwood that runs in the entry, kitchen and dining areas. It is all very mismatched and disjointed. Additionally in the kitchen there is now a "replacement" microwave sitting on the counter but the old apparently broken microwave is still installed. All very aesthetically unappealing.

On the final night of our stay we came home late at night after having been gone all day to find a VERY a unpleasant surprise of several little cockroaches running around in the kitchen sink!!! I was HORRIFIED!!! I am a very neat house keeper so it is not as though there was food or debris left in the sink so I have no idea why we were suddenly faced with this horror but it was awful.

Finally after our stay we received notice that a claim was being filed against the PDP insurance that we had purchased. This was very surprising to us as there was NO damage done to the home by us during our stay. When we questioned the owner he proceeded to tell us there was a hole in the drywall behind the master bedroom door (???) and said he wasn't sure if it was us or the previous guest that caused this damage but that he was filing a claim against the PDP we purchased. Odd to say the least!!

I hate giving a negative review about a place we once enjoyed but this place needs work

Property is under construction

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at the property during Thanksgiving weekend.

When we arrived the pool was not heated and was un-usable the first night. We contacted the owner and maintenance immediately. They were able to get it running. Per instructions we paid for heating of the pool way ahead of time. The pool was not swimable until the next day. Took a couple of hours to heat it. (Overnight) The hot tub was ready for use.

I wish we would of known that the home was under remodel. The tile was not grouted in the masterbedroom hallway and closet. We had to walk very carefully. Made things very dusty on the floors.

The kitchen was not as clean as we would of liked it. The fridge had sticky areas. We decided to clean everything and not bother the owner/maintenance. The rest of the place was clean.

This place had plenty of space for our extended family and is in a great location. There was plenty of appliances to use and great open floor plan. The backyard was great with pool, hot tub and plenty of seating areas.

On the last day the washing machine had a slight leak. Made a small puddle on the floor. We were able to clean it up with no issues or no damage.

This is a great home for large families. I would recommend the property. However, I would ask the owner if construction is completed before staying.

Owner's Response: We received a call about the pool several hours after check-in. I noted that the pool temp was 83 degrees but the pool heater had been manually changed to 98. I took a screen shot of the Pentair System to show that the pool was in fact on and cycled between 83 and 87 degrees as advertised. If I could attach the photo I would to show that the temperature was fine. We have professionally cleaned the carpets more than six times. It was time to get rid of them. We opted for ceramic tile throughout the home. The tile was installed and grouted in all 5 bedrooms between guests from October 29th to November 8th. The baseboards were installed between the next guest from November 13th to November 17th. The only room not completed was the master bedroom closet 10 x 12. This had no impact on the rest of the home. Our cleaning crew is prepared to re-clean anytime the home is not satisfactory upon arrival. The hospitality app specifically mentions cleaning standards and who to contact. It doesn't do us much good to make your stay any better if we hear about it 3 weeks after departure. We would have liked to have heard about the brand new washing machine leaking. That too is valuable information so we can take care of the problem right away. Perhaps the review was a direct result of our filing a damage claim. The wall in one of the bedrooms had a hole from the door handle. It was really a non issue as with PDP, we file the claim, fix the problem, and get reimbursed. It should not have caused any alarm. And Yes, all tile work has been completed.

Nice home but a few things left unattended

  • 4 of 5

The home was beautiful. However, there was tile work going on in several of the bedrooms which really doesn't bother me. The part that wasn't so good was the house was covered in dust I assume from the cutting of the tile. The house had three large garbage cans outside all of which were filled to the brim. I dragged all three to the curb for the Monday pick up. I look at the large cleaning fee paid as not necessarily for cleaning up from my stay but for me to walk into a clean house. I don't feel I got my cleaning fee worth of a clean house. The grill would not automatically light and there were no lighters in the house to help with lighting it manually. Pool was beautiful but could have used some instructions on how to turn the lights and waterfall on.
