My family rented the Cypress Cottage over the Labor Day Weekend. First, we called the property manager twice upon check in (Friday night and Saturday morning) and never got a response. They stated "didn't feel/hear the urgency to give a ring back." We called three times over the weekend and did not get a response until we were home and I had emailed them all of my concerns. I guess they were on vacation as well and they had no one responding to issues on any of their properties. Really bad customer service, lack of communication and wrong information included on their instructions. The unit lacked any smoke or CO alarms. Windows were moldy. Broken furniture inside and outside. The old roof must be leaking because there was evidence of this in the one of the bedroom (water stain/peeling paint). Disclosure: Only small kids (under 100 lbs) should use the bunk beds (base appears to be cardboard). The list goes on and on like several dog feces that were left and not disposed. This cottage is old and rusty but it is evident that there is a lack of basic routine maintenance that is not occurring. Plus side: good, quiet location, beautiful flowers were in bloom during our stay. We have used VRBO for many vacations and this was the worst due to the condition of the unit and the interaction from the property manager. We would not recommend this rental to anyone and will not rent from this property manager again.

Great time, Thank you for the stay.

The cottage was great, what it lacked in newness more then made up in its charm. The interior was simple, and tasteful Yes it is older a bit run down but we found it to be very relaxing. The old siding is rustic. The gardens were great, and the humming birds it attracted were a treat. . And the house was stocked with everything you could ever need, or want. Relaxed in the hot tub after a long day site seeing, books and board games were there for the family to enjoy. We had a wonderful stay. So yes a bit older but that's part of what we loved about its charm. We will be back again :)

My husband, 8 yr old son, and I rented cypress cottage for the weekend. It was a last minute getaway out of the heat in the valley. When we showed up it didn't look much like the pics on VRBO...much more grungy. We were excited to use the hot tub and were very disappointed when we took the lid off and it was GREEN. It smelled horribly strong of chlorine like someone tried to shock it before we got there but it was still green. Needless to say, we could not use the hot tub. The house smelled over strong with chemicals and was still grungy. The lawn chairs and table outside were dirty and not even rinsed off for us to use. Cobwebs in lots of areas. Needs a facelift inside and out....lumpy pillows, hard bed, old towels, etc. We would not recommend it to anyone and will not rent here again.

Owner's Response: Because of the drought I can not justify watering the lawns, so therefore the appearance will not look like the pictures. Sorry for the hot tub, it can easily be fixed if I know of the situation at time of check in and not when the guest has already left.

Alder cottage review

  • 1 of 5

Four of us rented Alder Cottage in late September 2011. We were all equally disappointed and felt it was not up to VRBO standards. The cottage was grungy and utterly lacking in anything resembling "charm." In many respects it resembled what you might expect from a $30 per night motel room. We have utilized VRBO for rentals on a number of other occasions and have found previous rentals all met or exceeded expectations. This rental was in another class entirely. Not a good experience and we would not recommend it to anyone for any reason.
