Large home needs some work/poor communication with owner
The home is large and furnished well in the living rooms, dining rooms and 1st floor bedroom. The bathrooms through out the home are nice.
The kitchen does not have a table for the two built in benches and very little counter space. There are paper/temporary blinds in the kitchen, dining and living rooms. One of the bedrooms upstairs has no blinds. The furnishings in the master and common area are very sparse. The pool area has 3 chairs and the area out side was full of leaves. No BBQ. There are light bulbs out through out the house, inside and out.
The cost of the rental is for 4 guests. For every additional guest the owner charges an extra fee. I had booked the rental for six guest. Before we arrived I found out that one person in our group would not be staying at the house and asked for a refund.I have emailed the owner through the VRBO site 4 time regarding a refund of the money that I paid for the extra person that did not stay at the home. I have had no response.
I would not rent this property again.
Thank you for giving your feedback! Most of our previous reviews are 5-star, couple are 4-star.
I would like to take an opportunity to respond to your comments. We answered all your questions about the house as soon as you sent your inquiry. Usually within 30 minutes.
Per your inquiry we allowed to bring extra furniture for dining and have Thanksgiving dinner with local relatives you invited to our home. We didn't impose any extra charges for that. Basically, we answered "yes" to all of your special requests.
All prices, additional guest rates, and taxes are always shown at the time of reservation and BEFORE you finalize it with payment. We are not responsible if our guests miss something in description or shown nightly rates. We don't have any hidden charges and our cancellation policy is shown for all guests to see and carefully study.
I issued a full refund for the guest who didn't make it even though due to cancellation policy you were not eligible for full refund since your additional guest changed his mind and cancelled his stay two days before arrival. But we always try to work it out with our guest.
All of our listing photos are current and reflect everything for guests to see. Two of the photos show each floor plan. It says nowhere in the description we have BBQ in the backyard. Also, as you most likely know, it's hard sometimes to keep up with leaves on the ground in the fall. They just keep falling down from the surrounding trees.
Hope this was satisfactory and your next stay in Jacksonville will be as good.
Large comfortable house in pleasant neighborhood
We had 6 adults stay here for 4 days for a wedding. The house easily accommodated us
Great property for a large group in a cool neighborhood
Our group of 8 had a wonderful time enjoying the house, backyard pool, and easy walks to some trendy bars and restaurants. The beach is an easy 30 minute drive, downtown is an even easier 5 min Uber ride. Would def visit again.
Beautiful, great location, great owner!
This Riverside property was so spacious and beautiful. It was so charming, and the furniture was very comfortable. The bathrooms were HUGE! The air conditioning worked great, which can sometimes be a problem in older houses, but not at this house! The owner was very communicative, and check-in and check-out was a breeze. The location was great too- close to awesome restaurants, coffee, and shops, and perfect for our short Uber ride for work into the Downtown area. My two critiques would be that the walls are too sparse with no decoration, and that not all the windows in the house have shades. Overall though, we loved it!
Wonderful wedding weekend
Enjoyed our stay here. Attended a wedding 3 blocks away so very convenient. Pool was warm enough for use (80°-ish?) Beds comfy. Beer and seltzer in fridge and a bag of Starbucks grounds. Many of the houses in the neighborhood including this one, have RAP signs on them indicating restoration in progress. Butcher paper blinds, knobless cabinets and picture hooks with no pictures in the walls suggest further work coming. None of this detracted from our stay. When owner was notified of A/C problem on a Saturday, it was fixed in 2 hours.
Wonderful house - had a great time
The house is beautiful - updated throughout. We were four guys on a golf trip, and the house couldn't have been better. Irina was wonderful to work with, and very accommodating. Highly recommended!
Thank you for kind words! It was a pleasure to host your trip. Glad all of you had a great time here. Hope to see you again.
