About Cyril Ferrao

When I first started listing this property on VRBO (2006?) there were only one or two others (would like to recognize #108673 as the oldest).

Today there are 13 and counting, most having come within the last 2 years. Wish I had invested in VRBO!

Cyril Ferrao purchased this house in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

The night stands were delivered and they are beautiful! We have been enjoying the house tremendously. Your renovations are outstanding. We will spread the word to family and friends. I apologize for the delay getting back to you, I just got married this weekend and have not had a chance until now to look at my email.

This house was the perfect size for the family! This is Rochester's rainy summer (happens every 10 yrs), but because the house was so spread out - we we're able to be comfortable, entertained and enjoy the view. The house has everything you would need - from games, books food to even sweatshirts for the people not expecting the cold weather. We hope to return next year when the sun is shining!!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this house very much. The location is good, and the house is very well-equipped, with a large living room/dining area with a beautiful view of the lake - very relaxing to be so close to the water. Mary, the neighbor/housekeeper was very helpful, and we really enjoyed the restaurant she recommended (the Dakota Grill - only a few minutes away). We'd love to rent it again, next time we're in the area.

Great Property, Bigger than Expected

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our trip here. Open plan kitchen was great for prepping meals and the huge living room was perfect for relaxing at the end of the night. Would definitely book again if back in the area.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at this spacious, comfortable, well-stocked waterfront home on beautiful Lake Ontario. The housekeeper, Mary Frances, lives 2 doors down and was very helpful and nice. Access to the lake is just steps from the deck but bring water shoes since it is very rocky. Many Lake Ontario homes are crowded together on congested streets but his stretch of homes sits in a park-like setting with plenty of privacy and natural beauty. There are large grocery stores and a variety of restaurants just 10-20 minutes away. We look forward to returning!

My wife and i spent a week here and could not have been happier. The setting is wonderful, with unlimited views of Lake Ontario. The sunsets are brilliant over the lake. Sitting outside on the deck or along the lake was so peaceful. The two trees along the lake's edge are PERFECT for a hammock! Rochester is not far away, and both Letchworth State Park and Niagara Falls are an easy drive. We also really enjoyed the closest town, Hilton, a beautiful small town with everything you need! In Hilton, I highly recommend Abbott's ice cream and Jose Joe's, a great place for a burrito or a garbage plate (a local thing - it was great!)! Inside the house is immaculate. Very comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen has very nice appliances and all the essentials. The bathrooms are very nice and the bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. The living room is spacious and very comfortable with cable TV. The WIFI worked great also. We had a fantastic stay. You will not b disappointed!

Not my cup of tea

  • 1 of 5

We (a family of 6 with 2 toddlers) stayed in the house this past September. The house is located in a beautiful lot, right by the water. The owner/manager had stocked the house with required necessities like towels/quick food items to be used on an honor basis/ a good entertainment system etc.

We had booked a stay for a week, we however vacated the place within 2 days. The following were the reasons.

1) The house does not have air conditioning. The advertisement is not very clear about this, but the 2 days we stayed, the temperature hit 90s and it was close to impossible to stay inside the house. The instructions from the owner asked us to ventilate the house once a day which was far from enough. The house is equipped with a few standing fans which are of little use because they circulate hot air. We spent sleepless nights because of the heat. We could not keep the doors open during the day or night because of our second reason, bugs.

2) There are bugs, period. There are numerous spider webs all over the place (within and out). Mosquitoes abound. All of us got bitten badly. One of our kids needed medical intervention because he developed an allergic reaction to the bite. We sprayed bug repellent in all rooms before going to bed in order to get some respite. Spider webs outside on the deck made us apprehensive using the deck. Using the grill was out of question because of the spider webs around it. The house interior (game room) and exterior is in need of a deep clean.

3) The main shower in the house did not have a shower head. The kitchen did not have a ventilator (with the bugs and the heat along with a lack of a ventilator, we ended up not using the kitchen for anything but making coffee/heating water etc)

4) Some neighbors seem to have big dogs. When taking the kids for a walk, we were warned by one of the neighbors from going past one house next to the lake house because of apparently fierce dogs.

We vacated the house within 2 days because of all these reasons. We wrote to the owners about our situation requesting a partial refund for our substantial payment considering the fact that none of these were clearly indicated in the advertisement. We were offered a small credit towards another stay in the lake house instead (which is definitely not on our books at this time).

I am aware that we are one of the only ones with a poor review, which surprises me, but I hope this helps someone in future.

Owner's Response: I’m sorry you had an unfulfilling experience. It appears your dissatisfaction is from the weather, not the house or amenities. Renters are provided instructions and phone #s for myself and our housekeeper. If you had problems with bugs/ventilation, you should have contacted us immediately. We first heard from you when you were about to leave. You called 3 days into your stay disgruntled so I sent our housekeeper to check if she could assist. She is a neighbor who has worked with us for 7+ years. She noticed all windows were open, but screens were not in place, probably contributing to the “bugs" indoors. When we ask renters to ventilate the house, instructions say screens must be lowered. From your review, you sprayed the house with repellent to counter bugs; it would have been easier to lower the screens. I am unsure of the "medical intervention”-hopefully your child is OK. Our housekeeper noticed members of your party in heavy garb despite warm weather, probably contributing to discomfort. Because of the lake effect, summer temps are 70-80°, making the house cool and outdoors pleasant. As airy properties go, spiderwebs are common outdoors. Our housekeeper dusts the deck, grill, and outside when renters vacate, but it is probable there were spiderwebs spun in the days you stayed. I’m unsure why this "made us apprehensive…”, but they were not hazardous. LOBH had some down time before you arrived, so our housekeeper completed a 12hr house cleaning. I have utmost confidence in her abilities and believe your expression “deep clean” is over exaggerated. The main shower operates perfectly- there are new types of different shaped showers and such is the main bathroom’s. A ventilator is used to remove kitchen odor, not bugs/heat. Many families with small children have rented LOBH and there has never been a issue with neighborhood pets. You sent 5 emails and made 3 calls the week after vacating LOBH questioning a refund. Our policy is standard: once you occupy the house, there are no refunds. When it was clear you would not outwardly receive a refund, it appears your objective was to besmirch the house with your review, to leverage a refund. My apologies you were unhappy at LOBH-I pride myself on being able to provide a 5 star experience for renters. I provided a $350 credit towards your next stay, no “small” amt for a small business. In 7+ years, I’ve finally learned the unfortunate lesson that you can’t please everyone. Elizabeth Ferrao CF Mgmt LLC
