The home was lovely, and location was very convenient. Anything needed was nearby. The ONLY issue we had was the television in the master suite did not work and the projector was no where to be found, it appeared to be uninstalled during our visit unless we were totally missing it (but I dont think so, we saw where it "should have been".) But we had great fun in the pool and on the lake. Everything was very comfortable. Honestly a bit nervous about the check out, my family and I always aim to leave things as we found it and the $10 for each item out of place bit among the extensive check out list that would incur extra charges was sort of scary with three children and I have not seen a refund as of yet for the deposit so I am waiting still to see how that is going to turn out.. BUT... Overall the rating on the stay was wonderful. The rating on the comfort of check out and making me militant the whole time about "dont touch anything" was uncomfortable a lot of times. Again, we leave things as we found it.. but I just hated feeling like if the bean bag chair was not lined up in the exact direction it should have faced or the blinds werent facing up or the floor wasnt swept and mopped meant I was getting a whole other bill... It made my last day pretty unenjoyable because I was essentially going through the house as the housekeeper, not enjoying my family which was the whole point of the trip. Not to say the home shouldnt have been left in an appropriate condition, but the check out list was inappropriate in my opinion. Lovely home... disappointingly strict and scary check out. (And perhaps this is probably just to make sure people dont trash the home, understandable... but $10 to move something from the counter to the table four feet away.. ouch.) Am I glad we stayed there? Yes, absolutely. Would I stay there again? No way.. too much stress... lol I am glad we did though. We appreciated the stay very much. Thank you to the property owners.
Stacy, Thanks for the cautious review. We are so sorry that our rules added any stress to your stay. Based on your comments we have changed our contract and addressed everything that you mentioned. Actually, we had allowed a lot of the info in the contract and the website get quite out of date and as of today it should be totally accurate.
I’d like to explain why we had put some of the stronger language in the contract which brought you undue angst. As we were learning the ropes of vacation rentals, whenever an issue came up we would try to put in language that would protect us from that negative experience again. Well, through the years there were quite a few issues which eventually led to a draconian rental agreement. Funny thing is that we thought we were doing good because each of those problems never arose again but the truth was probably that no one else would have done what those few thoughtless guests would have done anyway. So, what developed was a bunch of rules that were unnecessary for almost every wonderful guest our there, especially you!
Great Host !!!
Great house perfect for a trip there is absolutely no complaint that could be made concerning this property. One of the best homes we’ve stayed in in several years of using VRBO
Our family reunion
The home is beautiful and the surrounding area is fabulous. Our grandkids enjoyed the lake and pool very much!! SAD part is only 10 of us out of 16 were able to attend!! Pool table was a fun past time but missing the ping pong table! It was no where to be found!!
We had a few problems with the home, but were promptly fixed.
There were plenty of supplies and linens. Beds were good. Kitchen was chocked full of utensils, pots & pans, bowls, dishes, etc.
The trash situation was not good since it comes once a week! We all had to cart full trash bags home rather than get charged $50. a bag!!! We could not get local cable channels, only netflix, etc. Missed FOX NEWS and other TV shows!
A few suggestions: get a garbage disposal! That was very inconvenient and my biggest complaint is there is NO hand rail on the pool to enter and exit. Stairs are steep which made it impossible for me to get in and out without help! I believe it is very dangerous!
Overall it was a wonderful week for us!!
Thank you for the use of your home! God bless you!!
Thanks for taking the time to let share your thoughts on your stay. Just to address the issues:
1. The ping pong table has been removed for now. We had been using a VERY heavy pool table conversion setup and it was just not very user friendly. We will soon be purchasing a stand-alone ping pong table for the game room.
2. The trash situation is the trash situation. The county is the county and they don’t look at things from a “Customer Service” perspective. They make it very difficult and restrict cans to one supplied and, for a fee, only one extra per household. The problem is that folks on vacation tend to produce a lot of garbage. We’ve removed the $50.00 fee as long as you leave one can empty upon your departure.
3. The local Cable provider went all digital and so we lost the ability to have Cable on all the TVs in the house. All the sets are smart TV’s though and there is plenty of entertainment… Like hundreds of thousands of shows, sports and movies on all the apps like Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, etc.
4. I agree, the depth of our pool and the lack of rails is not the most ideal setup. The pool is a professional diver’s/swimmer’s pool and was installed with that purpose in mind. It wasn’t designed for amateurs. It’s not a public pool and doesn’t have the same requirements that hotel pools do, therefore it is not as user friendly as public pools. I’m sure it won’t be long until the DOH determines that Vacation Rentals like ours will need to meet public pool requirements. When that happens, I guess we shouldn’t expect to rent a 7,000 square foot, million dollar lakefront home like ours for the price of a small hotel room at the local Holiday Inn
Great place. The owner was very responsive and extremely helpful. Glad we stayed here. Also, some nice ducks visit in the yard. Quiet, private, peaceful. Good place for a big family with children.
Amazing house with stunning views
Eric and Dee, thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful lake house. The house is amazing. There is so much space and excellent facilities. The piano was used daily and the beautiful outdoor pool. The TV channels were excellent for the boys who wanted to watch the UK premiership football games!
Your neighbours were lovely and very friendly as was John, your pool guy. The view to the lake was stunning and the peaceful location was simply beautiful. This is the best place we have ever stayed and we were all sad to leave. We hope we can visit again.
Wow! Thank you for taking the time to let everyone know about your visit.
