It was so-so

  • 3 of 5

Trashy looking in the front yard because of boats. Hot water smelled like rotten eggs. It was because of hurricane Matthew. Called management company. They said to run hot water until hot water heater emptied. Smell of rotten eggs lasted for a day and a half. I feel they should have come out and done this way before we arrived. Absolutely no ice. Ice maker in wet bar did not work. No ice cube trays so we had to drive 15 miles to get a bag of ice. Pots and pans were well worn with shelving in laundry room stuffed with useless bowls and junk. No internet service. Inside looked a little bad because it needed a coat of paint. Furniture was well worn. One kitchen chair had been broken and not removed. Other chairs on their way to being broken. Hasn't been cared for in a long time. Lots of room. Good meeting place. Nice deck and view.

This house had everything that we needed for a perfect family vacation. The house itself is beautiful - great layout- very spacious. We enjoyed the water, sitting on the deck in the evenings enjoying the beautiful sunsets. The kids loved swimming right off the dock. My husband fished everyday. We rented a boat for a couple of days, which was so much fun and a great way to see the beautiful Lake Murray. Thank you for allowing us to use your home. We loved every minute of it! Would definitely recommend this house.

Inside nice but outside needs work

  • 4 of 5

Let me start by saying that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Weir Here over the July 4th week end. We could see the fireworks from the dock. The water was great for swimming and our young grandchildren could swim in the shallow water at the edge. The inside of the home was clean and had magazines and games available for our family's use. The outside of the home was the only problem. When we arrived there was probably 100 piles of dog poop in the back yard that we had to clean up to be able to walk around (there were no maintenance men available to come clean it). There was a table on the deck with 6 chairs for outside eating but 2 of the chairs were completely ripped out. 2 of the lounge chairs on the deck were so rotten and dirty you could not sit in them. There were 6 plastic adirondack chairs in the yard however they were covered in bugs and spider webs. We had to get the hose out and clean them before we could use them and that's when we discovered 3 of them were cracked and unusable. The ad for this home stated there was a kayak for our use. That was one reason we picked this property. Once we checked in, the owner stated it had washed away in a storm and offered no other alternative. Overall, we enjoyed our stay however someone needs to pay attention to the outside like they do with the inside.
