Comfortable & Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

This is a very late review but I still wanted to review our stay. We very much enjoyed the house and the owners were very accommodating especially being a late booking. There was plenty to do, the house was comfortable and the kitchen was very well stocked. The only issue we had (was my own fault), I locked my husbands cell phone in the house after we were checking out. Being a Sunday I knew it was going to be very difficult to get in touch with someone to find out what we could do. Thankfully some very nice neighbors knew the house keeper and she came right away and let us in to get it. We were very greatfull! Overall it was a great trip and I would love to go again.

No access to lake

  • 1 of 5

Sheets in master bedroom were dirty full of sand. Bathtub in 2nd bathroom difficult to use my brother in law fell twice uneven bottom. Not enough trash receptacles outside. Did not get get any information on how to get to house, or where to get keys, no phone number to contact you. Trail in back of house did not lead to lake. After walking cul de sac unable to find access point as all appeared to be private property, so weren't able to get to beach. After many attempts able to get help from vrbo on where keys were located and code to key box. Should not be this hard to get good information. Would not recommend to anyone.

Quiet house, communication can improve

  • 2 of 5

Overall we enjoyed the house as a family of 5 with a 7 yr old and 2yr olds. Suggestions for improvement:

1. Responsiveness is weak. Prior to arrival it took prompting to receive information and arrival instructions. Especially the day of arrival one would expect the landlord to be on standby for questions.

2. the beach access is not the trail behind the house. I was reading the reviews and it was not clear neither from the house write up nor any signs on site where to access the beach. Text messages and phone calls the day of arrival remained unanswered after we had climbed down the treacherous path behind the house with 3 small kids only to realize the path leads nowhere, except a lake overflow.

We tried the street and walked thru a drive way only to find a friendly neighbor who showed us the beach access at 118 Preston oak. So, warning: do not search the beach behind the house!

3. the deck has a dangerous step down by the side door, so that I fell and skinned both my knees. For safety the edge should receive some white paint. I have not busted my knees in 30 years. Ouch.

4. the carpet in the living room is curled up on the sides. It was only about 30 mins after arrival that our toddlers tripped and fell over it. So we had to roll it up completely out of the way.

Otherwise, the house is cozy and well stocked with utensils and every day supplies such as toilet paper, paper towel, trash bags, ziplock, gas in the gas grill, towels, spices etc. even has a fire pit in the front. Breakfast on the deck was one of my favorite things.

The beach is nice and secluded from the nearby public beach. We did however not find a souvenir store or any touristy place. The marinas only catered to boat owners. We went up to The Oklahoma welcome center on 75 and got some souvenirs etc of Choctaw Indians and Oklahoma there. Walmart is on 75 south about 20 minutes from the house. There is food mart about 5 mins from the house on 289 but it has only limited grocery supplies.

Nice home on a quiet street

  • 3 of 5

Our stay started out a bit dicey, as check in time is 2:00. We drove 5 1/2 hours to Pottsboro and I emailed and called along the way about our ETA, (Approximately 2:30-3:00). We were needing the instructions about how to gain access into the house. After arriving at the house, later than expected, 5:00ish, I still had not received info on how to get in! After finding the lock box on the side of the house, we tried several codes (random transaction, reservation, and even our phone numbers) we had received in our email communications; however, none of them worked. We made yet another phone call and had to leave a voicemail. By this time it's getting dark and it's near 6:00 pm. We decided to go get supper, our fishing licenses, and some breakfast supplies we hoped to use in the kitchen. Again making a few phone calls to the contact name, without success. By this time our anxiety is through the roof! My final call of the night was at 9:05pm, with a very curt plea of how to get in the dang house! I received a call back at 9:07pm with apologies and a code to gain access, a full 4 hours after our arrival.

Once inside the house, it was very well stocked. Everything we needed was there. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was fantastic! We cook several meals in the home and never without a necessity. The back deck is incredible and very well taken care of! Lots of places to sit and we even played games one night outside. The living room is beautiful and extremely comfortable for the four of us. We enjoyed the huge TV and DirecTV in the living room and bedroom. The home is located just a short walk to the lake, approximately one block and even though we were there in early March, you can tell it is a great beach!

There is a definite cleaning issue in the home, as the ceiling fans are covered in dust, the kind of dust you can see just looking at the ceiling fans. It had been there awhile. Also, lots of cobwebs and dirt in the corners. The front porch area was covered in leaves and we had to move them to get in the front door. The main bathroom definitely needed a deep cleaning and my friend left behind a few notes about where the housekeeper needed to spend some extra time (around the toilet and back splash of the sink). Also, BEWARE, there is no WIFI access in this home! So needless to say our data bill was through the roof once we arrived home!

Overall we had a very nice stay however it was dif

Owner's Response: I read your response the other day and would like to respond back to you. First I apologize if there was dirt in the house. We have a housekeeper and often times thngs are overlooked. We have tried to keep up a great standard so I am thankful that you mentioned the fans. Oftentimes it is easy for the cleaners to just do what they have to do on the floors. We will speak to them and show them this response. As far as spiders go, you can clean one minute and they are back the next. Again for the leaves, my husband is a fanatic on them and goes there regularly to be sure they are off the front of the house and the deck. It just takes a good blast of wind at the right time of year and they are all over the place again. As for the house keys, I am totally in the dark on that slip up and am very sorry for that to have happened. I try to send the directions and key info the week of arrival so it is fresh in the renter's mind. It must have slipped up in my mind. I do hope you had a good time and will consider us again. We will stay on top of your concerns as best we can. Sincerely, Rosemary Lootens .
