Perfect location, well equipped house.

  • 5 of 5

we enjoyed our stay and the house was perfect for our large family. The location is ideal as it's close to lake and within 15 minutes of pretty much anything we wanted to do.

Spacious and Clean

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice and big and so are all the bedrooms. The house is a little older but it's really close to downtown. House was clean and we had complete privacy. Only few issues was the lock, battery is running low so we had to enter the code a few times before it opened. Toaster also didn't work so we had to pan fry our bagels, but other than that everything was great! There were even beach towels at the house for us to use.

Needed some fixing

  • 1 of 5

Would love to have given this more stars as it is in a great location, home was tidy and had lots of space. Concerns were that there was music left on outside and we couldn't find how to turn it off, which later we learned the controls were inside the garage that we did not even have access to. This was accidentally left on by the landlord before we arrived. Sleeping in the basement I didn't hear it but another guest sleeping on the main floor heard it all night. Also the house was quite cold. The furnace wasn't working because the thermostat ran out of batteries which Gary came by to inspect and solved the problem. This being his second time he had to come to the condo for fixes during the stay. One of the shower heads was tapped together and spraying that it could not be used so we ended up all just using the upstairs bathroom. This being something I tried to avoid looking for a place with two full bathrooms since there were 6 of us. Also the kitchen sink was leaking onto the counter everywhere. Gary said he had parts to fix these items already but hadn't got around to it. I did not think was an adequate response as we're not being reimbursed or paying a discounted rate for rented a house that needed repairs to it that weren't completed before our stay. This was just a little frustrating being things you think you wouldn't have to deal with on vacation and it wasn't just one thing it was a variety.

extremely satisfied/happy

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 and 2 pets were very happy with the vrbo home. Everything presented as expected/listed. comfy beds, airconditioning, wifi, tvs, private yard, even a little mini putt, walking distance to beach and downtown, quiet neighbourhood. Cool heritage neighbourhood. Not sure What else to say about rental place--completely satisfied/happy.

We even got to meet neighbours on one side and enjoyed hearing some history of the neighhourhood. Very nice couple and their dog.

Dealing with Gary was great. He responded right away to any requests or questions. we definately will rent one of his rentals again when needed.

thanks Gary,

Kelly, Doug, Kids

Our impression of the property was what we expected.

  • 5 of 5

This property was close to the beach & biking trails, although we did venture further away.

The home & yard were clean & well maintained and would recommend it as a holiday home. The lower floor was excellent, but the main floor could use some work in the bathroom as the shower tends to spray all over the floor making it slippery.

The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, etc.

We were in easy driving distance to restaurants & shopping.

We never really saw the owner while we were there & it would have been nice to do so.

It would have been nice to use the hot tub, but as the weather was fairly hot the need wasn't there!
