I made it work

  • 3 of 5

Very good location. We got there late and did not have sheets for the couch bed. Had to call housekeeping to get them. We only had 4 towels for our stay, but we had 5 ppl. There was only 1 dish towel, 1 pot holder, 1 dish rag, no hand towels. The wash machine takes forever to start. With not enough towels i had to do laundry every day. Ended up just going to Walmart to get towels. Did not have enough dish ware. Had to go back to walmart to pick up paper plates. Only 2 coffee mugs. Black mold on the ceiling in the bathroom and dust all down the back of the shower . Bed sheets are worn thin, pillows have no slips under cases and have huge yellow stains all over them. The comforters for all the beds have weird stains. Would have just washed the quilts for the beds but they are line dry only and that is not really what i wanted to do on vacation. It was ok. I have done a lot of VRBO and this one was the only one I have ever had issue with. I would not rent this place again. It would be fine if they did a deep cleaning and replaced some things. It is very well decorated.

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Just the right size for 2 people not more than 4. Limited glassware for example: wine glasses. Needs coasters. Limited supply of dishware & coffee mugs/ cups. Decorated with good taste. Comfortable furniture.

Everything you need to have a restful stay. The beds sleep great. Only thing , we forgot to bring a hairdryer and they don't have one available. Not a big thing though.
