Home away from Home experience

  • 4 of 5

This was my first VRBO rental and I plan to do it all again in May 2018 in Raleigh, NC. This rental in Charleston was ideal for three couples. One small detail would have been to have a security bar in the first floor bathroom tub area to take into consideration my husband's inability to stand without some sort of support while showering. Another possible solution would be a stool or bench for the tub. Other than that, the rental came equipped with pretty much every basic need for the four days we were there. The beds were especially nice and were without a doubt most comfortable after day-long activities.

It was a good base to explore the area.

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice house. The pond advertised is basically useless. There is a boat to use but no way to get it into the water because the steps down to the water are missing. It looks by the pictures shown to be more of a remote area instead of on a main four lane thorough fare. But on the other hand it is centrally located and easy access to the city and bay. Overall it was a good base to explore the area.

Good location BUT...

  • 2 of 5

I knew that renting a house that was listed 'as is' would have some issues and I could accept the broken screens, lawn furniture, fountain; unusable door, scuffs and marks on the walls etc. But when I pulled back the bed cover and saw a large dark stain on the sheet right where I was suppose to lay down (DISGUSTING ) I knew that this was not going to be as good as I hoped.

If you are looking for a good location for Charleston then this is the place but if not keep looking

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This house was in the middle of everything, making it an easy drive no matter where you wanted to go. We loved the layout of the house. There were plenty of places to relax and chat. The house was clean and exactly as advertised. We would definitely stay there again.

Appearance

  • 1 of 5

When entering driveway the lawn had not been mowed for weeks, it was about 2 feet high. This kept us from enjoying the back yard. The carpet and furniture in the family room was soiled from heavy spills and food. Very dirty. Bugs crawling on the countertops. I have rented different homes around the U.S. and have never had one miss advertised like the Duck Dreamer. Could not use front walk to get to the front door because of overgrown shrubbery, had to walk though the tall grass. This is my first negative review, and I don't like doing it, however, you should not mislead people wanting a good vacation. will not recommend this property.
