Property was very clean and had all the things we wanted. It was ideal
Perhaps an overextended landlord?
Where to start? The landlord probably hasn’t been to the property in a while and if he has he needs help with details. There is no curb appeal. The back yard needs a good clean up and what’s with the outdoor couch in the middle of the backyard with black moldy cushions? The electronic instructions must have been for the house across the street. There was a hot tub in the back yard but no mention of it on the instructions and It was open and off when we arrived. Based on the overall cleanliness Wedidn’t use it. The Backyard is fenced but full of all kinds of yard debris so I couldn’t let the dogs out there off leash. The outside in front could be made nice for not a lot of money with a few bushes, etc. Inside needs a good coat of paint and the cleaners need some instruction. The sponge and scrubby thing left in the sink were old and should have been pitched. The top and back of the frig was filthy. There was a bug crawling in the tub. The refinished tub is loosing its finish and the shower rod is rusted. The light over the cooktop didn’t work. The washer dryer was nice but luckily I caught that when you turn it to cold you get hot. The Dryer vent was filthy and needs cleaning from the outside. I vacuumed as much as I could from inside but this is a fire hazard. There are no end tables, lamps or a coffee table in the living room and no light over the eating table. IKEA would be a good idea. We were very apprehensive of leaving our motorhome parked there but luckily were able to get it Inside the gate. Thanks to the landlord for trimming the tree but we told him the size of the rv before we came. Neighborhood is iffy. Some good some not. The gal that did my hair down the street said not to walk around at night. I have rented lots of VRBOs in the past 10 years. Never have left a negative review but I depend on them so want you to know an accurate picture.
Nice location. Easy to get to places. Nicely equipped kitchen. Even has a water dispenser, which gives you cold, tasty water. No dishwasher or stopper for the sink to do dishes, but there was soap. Living room only has an overhead light, so, it's hard to read or do anything where you need a bright light. The bedroom has an overhead light that is bright enough to read by. There are no table lights. The shower is wonderful, nice hot water. A stackable washer/dryer with laundry soap. Washer only washes in hot water even when setting on cold. All room darkening shades in house except one large window in bedroom. Made sleeping in a bit tough. Extra pillows in the closet helped to hide your head. Plenty of towels, toilet paper, soap, etc. Nothing needed to be bought for the house other than what we wanted to eat/drink. There was even a desk with a printer on it, paper and envelopes in the drawers along with pens. There is a LONG backyard with a BBQ grill, hot tub, couch and a few folding chairs. The hot tub was not maintained. There are several lights surrounding the house, but only the one by the front and back doors worked. These were not turned on for our arrival. We arrived at night, so it was a bit hard to see. The keyless entry worked great. There's a nice park next door that people use as a dog park. It also has exercise stations and a sidewalk to get your walk in. The neighborhood is safe. The A/C works great although it was not turned on for our arrival. The house was hot and the air was stale. Both problems were fixed quickly. This place served our needs, and it was nice having a house to stay in instead of a hotel.
My wife and I stayed for seven nights and found the Cottage to be very comfortable. There were a few additions to the amenities listed in the add. We used the large gas grill which worked fine but could have used some grilling utensils. We also used the hot tub six days of our seven day stay, although it was a but difficult to get in and out of. It was wonderful to have the washer and dryer available and we used them several times. The kitchen and living room could have used a bit more lights but it was usable. With the huge back yard , the grill, and the hot tub I would suggest adding some outdoor furniture. We would stay again if the need arises.
Wonderful and perfect
If you are looking for peaceful and quite this is the place. We totally enjoyed the large back yard and hot tub.. our dog had the time of his life running. Inside the cottage has everything you need. You won’t need to bring anything except your clothes, because all is provided except for the food and you are just minutes from a Publix, Target, CVS and Walgreens . It was clean and perfect size. The king bed was very comfortable. We would come back here again anytime we are in this area in a heartbeat. Bram was easily assessible and we want to thank him, Maria and Bill for their friendly service..

Great location & very comfortable!
Lots of space to relax - much more comfortable than a teeny condo! Well equipped kitchen and the TV setup is awesome. A huge backyard with an unexpected hot tub was also a great perk ... being on a quiet residential street makes it a home away from home. Yet we were 15 minutes from anywhere we wanted to go thanks to proximity to the highway & other main roads. Easy to recommend!
