Great spot for a frat party
Great neighborhood and the house was nice for a large group. Lots of potential, but needs some upkeep and a good cleaning crew. Hot tub was cold and dirty. New BBQ was out of propane and filthy. Basketball hoop pole was bent and not usable. Coffee maker still had a filter and used grounds in it. Some pans were dirty. Master bed was great - others were very low quality. Very limited supply of dishes and utensils for a house that sleeps 10. Just two coffee cups. A call to the owner was returned, but not until late on day two. He left a message and didn’t call again.
Good Place but not spectacular. Few problems with the house
We had a large group stay at the venue for a wedding. the bride and groom party all stayed for a few days.
The good: beautiful home, nice backyard. very nice and calm neighborhood. The master BR and bath were very nice and comfortable, as was the other 2 BR with queen beds. Pool table was a little rickety and old, but fun to play nonetheless. Outside Ball hoop was a nice touch and a vary spacious back patio. Plenty of parking was also a positive.
The not so good: 1) some issues with the house Day 1- front doorknob fell off immediately, upstairs hallway bathroom's toilet paper holder fell off immediately. The floors in the game area must have just been waxed, because i stepped onto it and literally slipped and fell right on my behind(first steps onto the floor). Also, the hockey table cord was torn and seemed to just be left there.
2) while the bigger bedrooms were nice, the other bed situations were not so stellar. The one pullout bed was pretty uncomfortable. the top bunk of the bunk bed room was rocking side to side with even the slightest movements (not great of you move a lot in your sleep). I believe they stated that a futon sleeps two (may be wrong about that) but that was a tight two to say the least. some people preferred purchasing an air mattress instead of sleeping in those beds.
3) provided the basic amount of towels (not the best quality), and just enough kitchen and dining supplies. would have been great for rooming 5, but had to be creative for 10.
4) Has a hot tub, but was netted off (I am guessing that means we couldn't use it), and even if we could use it, you can tell that it had not been cleaned in a while. a simple skimming would have sufficed.
This house has a lot of promise, but seemed to go a bit short on certain things. They were a little generous with how much it sleeps, but some basic upgrades would be nice. I would still recommend this place, but I would not say do not expect anything overly exceptional. Very nice home, a lot of space, needs to fix up basic things, and could use some better amenities.
Beautiful home! Had a great time.
you get a lot less than advertized
the only good aspect of the four day rental was the fact that family was able to be together.
if i'm renting a house for 10, i would expect some minimal supplies for that amount. here
are a few of the things we felt made this house overpriced and unexceptable.
no hangers in closets
no mattress covers in loft
poor quality sheets- BLACK sheets does not inspire confidence in cleanliness
no chairs in several of the bedrooms
screen door to back yard inoperable
no water supply in the Wet Bar
black futon in " pool table room" dirty, in terrible condition
pool table in terrible condition
no night lights anywhere-dangerous when getting up at night
no rubber mat in bathtub- slippery and dangerous
lamp in one bedroom was a bare light bulb- no shade
minimal patio furniture
patio heater not working
bed in loft collapsed when sat on it- support missing
4 cup coffee pot for house that sleeps 8
not even a salt shaker
only three or four coffee cups
poorly cleaned baking pans
scratched teflon frying pans
found coffee grounds in basket of coffee pot when we arrived. just think, someone
paid a cleaning fee
defective ironing board-fell on clients toe-picture taken
not enough hand towels or dish towels. there should also be at least a few extra
towels for the hot tub as well
no dresser or closet in the loft for putting clothes on. a dresser or chair would be
nice and a night stand and lamp next to the bed is standard
if this is an indcation of rentals from HOME AWAY then it may be necessary for us
to STAY AWAY.
I feel this review is EXTREAMLY over critical.
To start, there are many supplies for a house of 10 or even 11. Plenty of towels, beds, seating and kitchen ware. If there were not enough coffee mugs for all 10 drinking coffe at the same time, then perhaps a regular glass as there are plenty.
There are hangers in the master closet that can be moved easily. However i am more than happy to supply more hangers.
Mattress cover doesn't seem nessesary. The mattresses are in great condition, as well as the sheets. Only 1 bed has black sheets. Colors vary depending on room accents. Should not depict on cleanliness, that seems like a personal issue with color.
House is extreamly clean. Maid service does an excellent job. (Very reputable company.)
As far as frying pans being scratched or not knowing how to use an ironing board properly, we'll not much can be done about that.
There are plenty of nightstands, dressers and places to sit. The home cannot have too much in 1 room though or there would not be any space to walk. (each room definetely not spacious enough for 10+ people)
The patio heater works great, there is a salt shaker, ...etc., ..I simply cannot help those that don't reach out and ask questions during there stay.
I do appreciate suggestions in making the home more enjoyable, however I feel these comments were unnesesary and a little too far. It seems harsh to give a bad review when no questions or communication was given at all from the guests during their stay to indicate it was anything less than pleasent.
I hope they understand the effect a bad rating gives and how accommodating the host is willing to be during the time of stay.
Perhaps next time guests could reach out to host for any question or concerns they have first. Seems like more the proper way to do things.
Great home and location
Spacious and clean home perfect for our out of town guests and a stay-cation for us as well.
