Cozy house for the right price

  • 5 of 5

Cozy house and it fit our needs perfectly! Agatha was a great host and we had access to everything we needed. Close to the city, waterparks, and more for a great price. Agatha left us plenty of snacks and extra toiletries, and was available if needed.

Will say there are a lot of stairs to get to the door, which wasn't hard for us, but can be difficult for those that have problems with steps. Overall great value.

Clean and well-kept inside. Interesting layout - great for a lot of people

  • 4 of 5

The place was clean and welcoming! Agatha had stocked the fridge and bathroom with some stuff, everything was in working condition. Lots of steps - three stories. No bathroom on the main floor. Three bedrooms upstairs share the bathroom in one of the bedrooms on that floor. all beds and couches were VERY comfortable. The train passes fairly close by and blows his whistle every 16 minutes. Nothing in walking distance, but a full waterfront mall with Macy's, supermarket, lots of bars and restaurants is less than a five minute car ride away. No problem getting Uber to come to the house. The steps leading up to the house outside have a railing, but there are a lot of them and they are fairly steep.

The kitchen easily holds 12 and we had a great time.

A great experience with no surprises

  • 5 of 5

The house is immaculate, filled with various themed rooms and lots of extras/goodies everywhere. You don't get the add on's at many hotels that Agatha provides.

Agatha is the ultimate host. Look forward to staying here in the future.

Good Value for the Price

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the house and it worked great for our group. The one bathroom that was through two bedrooms was the only issue. The house is very clean and the owner pays attention to details. Everything from snacks and drinks to umbrellas and slippers. If you keep in mind that it is very affordable, you will not be disappointed.

A little surprised of neighborhood

  • 2 of 5

Three mature lady friends rented this apartment for a birthday celebration. The owner, Agatha was quick to respond to my emails. She also added some very special touches to the house like a birthday cake and several snacks and breakfast foods, which was very nice. The house is as pictured on the inside. Very eclectical decorated and very clean. However to give an unbiased review I do have to mention a few things that I feel anyone renting this would like to know. There are four bedrooms in this house and two have two beds, one being a double blow up mattress and one being a day bed. One of the other two bedrooms has a king bed with a regular mattress and the other has a double with a regular mattress. There is one tiny bathroom that you get to by walking through two of the bedrooms. There are 30 some steps that you have to walk up to get to the entrance. We felt that negotiating these steps would be very difficult in snowy or icy weather. This brings me to the out side of the house and its location. It's too bad that there aren't any pictures of the outside of this house and of the abandoned house next door. Being three ladies we really questioned our safety in this area. This might be a great property for a group of men or for those use to urban living, but for us it was a little frightening. Another thing that surprised me about this rental is that I had to purchase insurance for $59. I've rented many houses from VRBO and have never had to buy insurance. I've had to put down a deposit, but never buy insurance. After arriving there we wondered if the insurance was for our car parked on the street or our things inside. There are also plug-in air fresheners in every room so if you have any allergies to fragrances this might be a problem for you. My two star review is based on the neighborhood this house is in and does not reflect on the owner, who was very nice, or the cleanliness of the house. Just felt like these are things anyone would like to know.
