Could of been ideal but.....
The home was beautiful and spacious . We loved the home until the rats showed up. Apparently they had issues in the area that the rental management company was aware of but did not set any traps before we arrived. They did come right away to set traps when we called about the problem however that same night my nephew woke up at 3:30 am and found a rat in bed with him and his wife! No one would sleep in that room after that because that room and the bathroom was the only place we saw rats and droppings. The trap caught the smaller rat on our last night in the home. The rat screams woke up the entire family.
We also had issues with the pool heater and the pool water causing skin irritation. However after the rats it did not seem like such a big deal.
It really was a shame because the home and location were beautiful.
We were dissapointed to hear of this recent guest's review. Our records do not indicate any knowledge of rodent activity, or knowing about it, prior to arrival. Our records indicate that the guest did report a rat, at which time a member of our team went over to the home immediately to investigate. He found no evidence, but left traps in case. The next day we received an email that a rat had been in a bed - but the email was received almost 12 hours after the said incident. Throughout their stay, our team members and a rodent professional continually checked but the traps were untouched and we found no rodent activity. Our records also indicate this guest was tampering with the pool valve causing the need for daily servicing. RVA and it's affiliated properties hold our guests experience at the utmost level; and we truly felt every effort was made to ensure this guest had a relaxing vacation.
