Fun Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

Everyone had a great time. The house was very clean. The kitchen was fully equipped, lots of games, pool table ,DVD, books, etc. We would certainly consider staying there again. Suggest supplying bath soap for the showers, throwing out frying pans with teflon coating coming off and the one with duct tape on the handle. All in all it was a very nice stay.

Place wasn't ready when claimed and owner tried to charge for thousands of dollars in damages

  • 1 of 5

The place was fine, and we would have enjoyed our stay except for two things:

1) We contracted to use the place starting at 3:00 on our day of arrival and up until noon on our day of departure. The cleaners weren't ready and we couldn't get into the place until 5:00. We had two hours of waiting around with kids and seniors in our group Then the cleaners came two hours early on the day of departure and started cleaning around us.

2) After our stay, the owner claimed we owed her more than a thousand dollars of damages. But we didn't cause any damages. There was one cheap plastic patio chair ($18 at Home Depot) that collapsed when my brother sat it in. But it was the chair's fault, not my brother's, that it collapsed, so I don't think we should pay for it. And she charged 3 times what it was worth for the damage.

I would not rent a place from this lady again.
