We spent 4 nights here and felt like home. The home was clean, well furnished and a nice quiet neighborhood. The people we dealt with were professional and cared about our well being and that we were comfortable and enjoying the home. If, anyone is traveling to the Rapid City area and wants a place that makes you feel at home and welcomed, this is the place for you. If, we ever travel to that area again, this will be on our list of places to stay.

Thanks to Dee and Lynn for your hospitality and caring.

Nice place to stay in the Black Hills!

  • 4 of 5

We decided to get a VRBO at the last minute in early May. We found this home and it was in the perfect location, close to the park & lake, & very convenient for our family to drop by.

It is very well kept and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed all the artwork and special touches. There is laminate wood floor throughout.

There are 3 bedrooms: one has a king, one has a one queen, and one full bed. There is small ½ bath off off the first bedroom with the full bed. The bedding was very clean and new. The towel supply was very generous. The owner also left 4 Gain pods for a few loads of wash, The full size washer and dryer worked well.

There was plenty of seating inside the living room and dining room. Outside there was seating on the front porch and in the back year around a fire pit. The fire pit was a really nice feature and teens loved it. There was also plenty of parking in front of the garage and on the side of the house. I believe the garage was available to park in, but we did not..

The kitchen was very efficient with a diswasher plenty of Corelle dishes, bowls, pots/pans. The fridge/freezer were clean and worked great. Stove was gas, which I prefer. There was central heating and cooling in the home.

The photos are right, this home is single-wide, that has been very well remodeled, upgraded and loved. Again it worked very well for us.

So what did not work for us? Very little but you do need to be aware of these minor issues.

- I was using the HomeAway app, and I missed that there is a $20 per night per person charge for any guests. You get 2 guests with the base price.

- The tub faucet (which is the only place to bathe in the home) did not have good water pressure "if" you turned the temp to warm-hot. We finally told the owner the day before we checked out, but it was too late. *So when you check in, run to the full bathroom and turn on the shower. If the water dribble out when the temp is hot, tell her right away! The owner wants to know if there are any problems with in 24 hrs of checking in.*

- Check out is 11am. We packed the car, locked the door. It was 10:30am. But we forgot a magazine. When I returned to the door and used the entry code, the code had already been changed. So make sure you have everything before locking the house. I really think the owner should have waited and change the code at 11am, which is the check out time that was agreed upon and posted in the home.

Thanks for a nice place to stay in SD! We will be back

Owner's Response: Mary thank you for taking the time for your review of my property. I am very happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your time in Rapid City. I am a little confused as to the 3 problems you listed at the end of your review. 1. As you stated, there is a $20 per night, per person for more than 2 guests in my Rate Information Page. I am sorry you missed the information regarding the additional charge. 2. I had my plumber repair the hot water flow within 24 hours of your notification. 3. The door does not automatically change the entry code. The code is manually changed by the housekeeper at 3:30 pm on the day of departure. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thank you again, for your nice review in calling my attention to any inconvenience you feel you have incurred. Sincerely, Deanna Rendina

Relaxing in South Dakota

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we used a HomeAway vacation spot. And staying at this house was a great first-time experience. It was clean, well stocked with towels, and a quiet location. At night, deer would come and just walk around in the grass. Good location too. Not far from many of the places we ate but nothing really within walking distance, especially with the early March cold weather. There was only one television and that would be the only thing we would change. An extra set in one of the bedrooms would have been nice, but not a big deal for us. If we ever do return to South Dakota, we will definitely try to book this house again. Thank you for opening your house to us!

I have stayed at this place 3 different times, and I will say it has always been clean and has basic amenities, no extras. We ran out of paper towels so provided our own.

This year was a disappointment with customer service. I rented the place because we were coming for the dog show. The first year we were charged a pet fee, the second and this year we were not charged, even though I stated that on my original e-mail. The day of our arrival I had to contact the owner on how to get into the place and that was when we were arriving into Rapid City. Second we were told that the house was messy and feces in the house after we checked out. When I asked where I was told she had pictures and it was in the bathtub and on the bed, which I bring sheets to cover the furniture just in case. I instructed her to take the deposit for the dogs from our refundable deposit but that is after the fact as I stated above we were coming for the dog show. I have also requested multiple times for the pictures that were suppose ably on her phone, was told she was working on a big project and would get them to me. I asked again and was told she had ONE, but still have not received it as I would like to see what we are being accused of.

Owner's Response: Karen, Please let me know what extra amenities you would desire. If you ran out of paper towels, I would have gladly provided you with another roll if you had let me know. VRBO was to send you a Welcome Letter with the key code, I was not aware they did not until you contacted me, I am sorry for the inconvenience. I am so sorry you were disappointed with my customer service. I contacted you regarding the condition of the home, because my housekeeper informed me “How many people were here, there is dog feces in the bathtub.” I see by your comment that you brought sheets to cover the furniture, however, dogs are not allowed on any of the beds or furniture, as stated in the agreement. I explained to you that you did not include your 5 dogs in 2015 or 2016 when you booked the property. I stated to you that I would waive the extra cleaning charge. However, since you did not list or pay for your dogs in 2015 or 2016 of $750.00, if it would be agreeable to apply the $300.00 deposit for the nonpayment for the pet fee that totaled $750.00, giving you a $450.00 discount in which you agreed. I e-mailed you the picture in November. I am surprised by your review, as you agreed with the situation and I felt we were okay, apparently you are not. Due to the condition of the home, I am no longer allowing dogs at the home, as I want the home to be a clean and enjoyable place to stay for others while enjoying Rapid City and the Black Hills.

Rental not as represented.

  • 2 of 5

The photos and description of this property are extremely deceiving. This rental is represented as a "house". It is in fact a single wide trailer that has been added on to. A garage has also been added which helps disguise the fact that this is a trailer house. I feel that it is only fair for people to know exactly what they are renting. After driving 1500 miles and arriving at the address of this rental I can't tell you the amount of disappointment we experienced. Luckily we were visiting relatives in Hill City and most of our time was not spent in the "house". Rapid City is a beautiful place and there is lots to do for sight seeing. However, I feel it is important to point out the misrepresentation of this property.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you feel my property was extremely deceiving. You never contacted me of your displeasure with the home until this review a month later after your stay. The photos and description of the property are an exact representation of what you see upon arrival. This property meets all of the specifications of a single family home on a permanent foundation. This vacation home is not mobile or considered a trailer. Thank you for your opinion.
