If you are a craft beer fan, you can not find a better location. Thus house is a three minute walk to Great Raft Brewery.
In need of some general maintenance and loving care.
Although the grass was cut on Tuesday, we arrived on Monday to knee-high grass in the front yard (I kid you not). Not a good first impression. The front porch was extremely dirty with dead bugs, spiders, dirt and cob webs. A heavy duty extension cord came from a locked back door/room on the house, ran across the yard on the ground and through the fence next door. As much standing water after the rain that we encountered, someone could get electrocuted. Downstairs bath: toilet handle falls off, lights out, toilet seat extremely lose and due to the design of bathroom, you have to turn sideways to use that toilet. End board on pool table fell off on a child's foot (no injuries but it could have been). Dishwasher handle comes off. Bathroom at top of stairs: lights out, bath tub dirty with hair and scum and that shower contraption and the curtains installed around the tub are safety hazards. Not at all user friendly for me as a senior citizen and small children. Had the house been cleaned? I think not, according to any reasonable standards. The house has an old and musty smell and needs airing out or repainted inside or something. We did enjoy the games though. My overall personal opinion is, those conditions I described are unacceptable and not the the way I chose to live. Therefore, I would not recommend that house to anyone. The picture is definitely deceiving and the owner should be ashamed charging rent until it's been brought up to reasonable living standards. It could be a beautiful home but, there's no doubt that the house needs work done on it.
Hi Vera, We are sorry to hear that the maintenance of the property fell short of your expectations. There had been heavy rain and flooding in the area before your arrival, so the regular lawn care was not able to be completed until after you checked in. The flooding was severe enough that the homeowner was using a sump pump to make sure that all of the water was removed from under the house. The cord that you noticed was for the pump, and it was not a safety hazard in any way. A cleaning crew prepares the home for each reservation, and you met them when they allowed you to check in even though you arrived well before your scheduled check-in time. The cleaners and the homeowner take the experience of their guests seriously, and they have confirmed that there are no issues with the porch or any of the toilets. The owner has also already replaced the dishwasher. As you can see from past guest feedback, the owner takes pride in providing 5-star experiences for the travelers that they host, and we are looking forward to helping them continue to do so! Best, the Evolve Team
It was so nice having a house to come home to on our vacation. Rooms were nice and large. We really enjoyed the pool table, ping pong table and darts. It was not the cleanest, and did not have good response time with house keeping and problems were never fixed. I think we would try it again just knowing I would need bring bleach, clorox wipes and gloves.
We were in town for my sons tournament & had extended family with us. The house was large enough & everything was just as described. Thanks for a great stay.
Cute, fun, and relaxing
We stayed while playing in a soccer tournament in town. It was a great house for kids, very entertaining and was central of all fields we had to play on. Rooms were cozy too!
The house was so nice! Everything you would want for a vacation home!
