I wish there was some way to post actual pictures of this site, the pictures are very deceiving. Cabin is way to close to Managers/owners. No privacy at all. Your cabin is almost attached to the owner’s cabin and they also must rent out to a permanent tenant the other half, and instead of looking out onto the river, you are looking at them which is a very invasive feeling. Pool was dirty and smelled. Cabin needs a good cleaning. Lots of bugs dead and alive all over. Unsure of clean linens. Bottle of medication was found in one. One of the bedrooms had a gaping hole in the ceiling. Vines were growing all over the windows. Sleeper sofas were dirty and broke. Kitchen utensils were broken; no bowls, glasses, pot holders, dish rags or towels. We had 4 bath towels for 12 people. Once we received more,(the next morning), we had to re-use the towels, each night, because the washer was broken and would not spin. After mentioning that to the owner, he never attempted to try to fix. Curtain rods on showers were broke and placed on the top of the shower, and would fall on your head. No towel racks. Wet paint in bottom of showers. Not once, but twice did someone in our group fall through the rotten porch. Both my son and brother-in-law fell through the rotten porch, one while sitting in a chair and the board broke and the other, part of his body fell through. The sad part about it is that my son ended up in bed the rest of the next day and until we left, unable to play with his children or the rest of the group and my brother-n-law could barely walk after. Both incidents were reported; when they happened to the care takers (who are the owners) and when we returned home to the management company. The trash is dumped on the property, so you smell it while trying to hang out and relax down by the water. There is a rooster in the back of the cabin, crowing at the most inopportune times. People and vehicles seem to be coming and going late into the night. They also take up most of the parking spots.
Hi Shelly, We welcome and appreciate constructive feedback, however, we and the homeowner do not believe this feedback is warranted. Prior to your stay, there was a tornado, so it's natural that some of the external spaces were not as carefully maintained. Cleanliness is of utmost importance and the guests that have stayed after your visit have not had similar experiences. We're sorry to hear you had trouble with the deck, however, this has also not been an issue for other guests. We understand the homeowner went to generous measures to find you places that would truly suit your needs. We would like to assure future travelers that this home meets all of Evolve's 4 Core Property Standards: Safe, Clean, Guest Ready and As Advertised. The owner prioritizes the guest experience and we look forward to hosting future satisfied guests here. Best, the Evolve Team
Place is a dump.
Embarrassed to say the least. But this ones on me I should’ve done more research on the place. It was a total failure form the being. Your normal maintenance wasn’t even done. No weed eating around the property. House hold trash scattered around the back deck. First night we walk out the door there’s a bag of trash, plunger all the bath room rug thrown on the porch. Piece of pvc pipe and file on the table. Lights burn out through out the place. Facia boards falling off. Bed sheets had stains and cigarette burns on them. Microwave had dishes with food left in them. Up stairs bathroom toilet was broke. I had a group of friends come in from out of town and I was utterly embarrassed. Then the “property manager” tries to tell me they’ve been doing maintenance but they are trying to do it in between stays. Ive been coming to Toledo bend over 30 years. I know that’s a lie. Winter is the slow months these things could have been taken care of. I didn’t ask for a refund or want one this one is on me. But I’ll never stay there again and it’s a mark on Evolve and VRBO.com.
