I think this is a great opportunity to help the tourists enjoy this gem while they are visiting.

Owner not interested in your comfort

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival, found a pair of soiled underwear at the foot of a bed that had been made up. Owner assured me that this was the only bed whose sheets had not been cleaned, which was not very reassuring. Despite being asked vehemently, she refused to re-wash any of the linens, and simply said there was a new pack of sheets we could re-make the bed with.

Upon closer inspection, the sheets on a different bed were seen to have white stains. We tookall the linens to the nearest laundromat, in Picton, and thoroughly washed everything from all of the beds. The white stains from the second set came out completely.

When asked if we could at least have a discount because if the issue, she said that she would discount one room for one night. This discount did not ever materialize, even though I asked her about it specifically by text.

When I let her know that we had gone ahead and washed the sheets, as we had told her we intended to do, she seemed indignant, and replied that that was 'completely unnecessary'.

We did receive our damage deposit back, and the owner even said that she had "waived" the $25 online booking fee, which I had not been informed of at all prior to that, and certainly was not mentioned when I booked the rental online.

I will mention that the owner offered to refund our money if we wanted to leave, when she heard about the underwear, however we had already traveled a long way to get there, including a young baby, so at that point our alternatives were quite limited.

Owner's Response: How can traveller say im not interested in comfort?. I contacted guest before arrival to inform him that I was having issues with r efridgerator and told him then I would refund the entire stay due this fact. He was very gracious and assured me that it would not be a problem. I then received an email from guest upon arrival and they said they loved the place it was perfect above expectations. I later received a call and text at work about underwater found in one of the linens I was as horrified as they and utterly embarrassed to say the least. I was told what room and knew exactly because I was told that room wasn't used so just regular dusting and cleaning took place.I assured them all of the other linens were changed but they refused to believe me. I told them the only thing I could do was refund their stay. I was also told that only 6adults and one child would be staying only to find out they lied to me that another couple was joining them.One of the women even claimed that she was picking up a child in Belleville so that they wouldnt max the 8person allowable limit only to find that was a lie. So their claims have lost all credibility with me. They then wanted to go to my neighbor to bother them about laundry..they carried on redicilously about something that now im not even sure are the facts now. Maxing the eight people limit I should have charged them extra. Sean Morris will never rent from me again. cheers

Great location for wineries with a few cautions

  • 2 of 5

A group of us booked this place last minute over the Sept long weekend as it was the only one left available. Overall, we had a good time but with a few cautions that made our experience "fair".

Good things:

-Walking distance to three wineries ( and short drive to others)

-Short drive to sandbanks (20min) , pass provided

-Cozily decorated, newer kitchen

-Fits 7 comfortably (plus futon in hall)

- all items needed provided, dishwasher, water cooler, welcome wine even

- nice big yard and fire pit ( on major street but didn't bother us) (buy your own wood)

-owner let us have 2 extra people stay a night which was nice


- Water has a really strong sulphur smell - was not expected.  We have cottages and have stayed in cottages before that have a sulphur smell, which is common, but this was by far the strongest any of us have experienced ( some could not shower)

- Although cutely decorated - the structure/ backbone appeared to have some issues - e.g, uneven floors, holes in walls, doors would not close, banisters shakes, electrical outlets sparked etc.

- Unfortunately we had a bad experience with the damage deposit.  There were two gravity outdoor chairs that broke.  The first chair broke as soon as someone sat in it for the first time (light person) and the other the next day.   After this happened we checked out the other chairs and loungers and saw they were moldy, with some tears already - so we stayed away from those.  The owner decided to keep the damage deposit to cover these two chairs.   We sent several emails back and forth with the owner but unfortunately it was not resolved and the entire amount was kept.  We felt this was unfair and normal wear and tear should have been covered in the daily rental price.  

Summary - great location for wineries, good time, but factor in the damage deposit "just in case " ( and keep in mind the sulphur smell)

Owner's Response: This property has been in the family for over 20 yeas. It is a very quaint, warm, decorative cottage that would comfortably meet all of your vacation needs. Every stay so far has had a very positive response with the only negative being the hint of sulfur smell in the water Anyone staying there has mentioned noticing it slightly then after a while not noticing at all. This can be typical in country dwellings. A water cooler is provided for drinking and cooking even though there is absolutely nothing unsafe with the well water. The dwelling is safe and sound. Unaware of holes in the walls and sparking plug ins that were previously mentioned. A damage deposit is required in the event some property is damaged or destroyed. I had the unfortunate experience of people staying who mentioned they really enjoyed their say and had ripped one of my zero gravity chairs so they folded it on the deck.To my surprise i found both (NEW) chairs completely destroyed. The wear and tear was above normal use. This same patio furniture has been used by people all summer with absolutely no issues. In hind sight more money should have been charged for allowing extra people to stay above the recommended and maybe more of a damage deposit should be collected to cover costs of actual damages. Renters beware to who you are allowing to stay at your place. The name on this review serves as a caution.
