Nice house in a quiet neighborhood

  • 3 of 5

This cute house is in a convenient neighborhood that's close to downtown and about 15 minutes from many of the tourist areas. It is on the small side, so 2 people can stay very comfortably and 3-4 people fills it up.

The backyard is very nice with a table and seating under a pergola as well as a barbecue grill.

There was coffee, tea and a few pantry items for us to use, which was a nice touch.

A couple quirks:

Don't use the washing machine! We used it and it shook so hard, with just a couple pairs of shorts and 2 small t-shirts in it that it caused the plug to come out of the wall. This caused the machine to stop working while still locked, so my clothes were trapped inside it. Once we figured out the issuesand got my clothes out, I had to rinse the clothes by hand and let them air dry outside. The owner said it could handle up to 7 pounds of dry clothes, but it really can't handle even 2 pounds.

The house has rather poor lighting, especially the kitchen. Also, one of the bedroom lamps didn't work.

Overall it's a decent house that we would give 3.5 stars.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Clean and very welcoming. Great for a couple with or without kiddos. Might not be as good for multiple adults because bath is tiny and shared. The back patio is a morning coffee drinker's dream with just the right amount of sun and shade! One suggestion is to bring queen sheets and pillows: flannel sheets on the master bed and old foam pillows. We purchased a set on our second day. That night's sleep was much better than the first. Would stay in this home again!

Perfect location and house!

Couldn't figure out the washing machine, but beyond that very nice place; clean, well maintained, and an excellent backyard.

I would recommend.
