Huge home with double decker dock
Rented this place for a long weekend with friends. Was impressed by how large the space was and how much seating was offered. Not impressed that it had appeared to be cleaned awhile ago and a final walk through had not been done before our stay as there was a dead cockroach on the round and the outdoor furniture was so dirty it couldn’t be used. Walking down to the dock you have to dodge a lot of spider webs and there was a huge wasp nest under the railing on top of the dock that didn’t make sitting on the second floor of the dock very enjoyable. The walk to the dock with coolers etc is also a struggle because they have stepping stones and not a sidewalk to get down there.
Very Nice secluded place
Nice place. Nicely laid out.
Very nice, quite stay.
Good visit. Nice hosts.
Very nice stay in very nice home.
We had a great time. Owners very responsive and caring.
The house is nice but the exterior is a mess. The decks and stairs are basically falling off.
Loved the location on the lake and the dock. Spent the entire day Saturday in the water, it was great! The House wasn’t as clean as I would of hoped after paying over $300 in fees. Floors were sticky and carpets were not vacuumed. Beds had flannel sheets, in August which just doesn’t make sense. There was only 5 trash bags for two days and 10 people, how does that make sense? They asked us to take trash but didn’t give us enough bags to even clean the house, had to use grocery bags and boxes. Was quite concerned by the state of the exterior stairs and decks as they are leaning and look like they are about to fall off. There isn’t a fire pit which was a downer as we had planned to do s’mores. If the lake hadn’t been so great the weekend would of been a total bust.
Hi Alana, We are glad that you enjoyed the property's great lake-front location, but we are sorry to hear that the home was not stocked to your satisfaction. The cleaner inspects the property before each guest's stay, and we have shared your feedback so that they can resolve any issues for upcoming travelers. The homeowner will also have someone take a look at the deck and the stairs to ensure that there aren't safety hazards on the property. Fire pits are no longer allowed in the area due to local ordinance, but we apologize for any disappointment. We appreciate your feedback for helping us improve the experience of our future guests, and we hope to have the opportunity to travel with you again in the future. Best, the Evolve Team
Great Location, House needs some issues addressed
Overall it was a good experience, loved the location and kids had a blast. The house itself needed some issues addressed. Listing mentioned a Gas Grill, but it was unusable. There was no way to connect it to the gas line and the propane tank was completely empty. There were also drainage issues with the downstairs bathroom tub and it was dirty upon arrival so we had to clean it before we could give our kids a bath. We also had issues when trying to take the trash on Sunday as the recycling center is closed, but this was listed in the instructions and an oversight on our part to wait until Sunday to try and dispose of it. When paying a high cleaning fee, I don't agree with guests having to dispose of their own trash, I personally would never require this for my rental. I also wouldn't expect guests to have to clean things upon arrival with that high of a cleaning fee and would have been nice to get back a small portion of it due to this but that was not offered when I notified the owners. With that said we definitely enjoyed ourselves and the lake but would probably find a different rental next time we visit Lake Hartwell.
Hi Robert, We are happy to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay, but we are sorry that some aspects of the property fell short of expectations. The homeowner is sorry that you were not able to use the grill during your stay, and they have purchased a brand-new grill for their guests. They are also working on the best way to address trash removal and will let travelers know once the new protocols are in place. Their cleaner inspects the property and sends photos before each reservation, and we are confident that the small cleaning issue with the bathtub will not reoccur for future travelers. Thank you for your review, and we hope to travel with you again soon! Best, the Evolve Team
