Lovely grounds and people. Pool, docks, sport games, and hammocks were really great. Lots of space to spread out - outside and inside. Screened patio was nice. Road noise was not noticeable during day, but needed to keep windows closed at night with AC on to avoid. Views were amazing for sunsets and stars at night. Kitchen outfitted well although kinda cramped for two cooking together. Carpeting should be replaced with tile as it is stained and covered wth tons of tripping-hazard throw rugs. Baths and furnishings are worn and dated, but functional. Family room has all you need with WiFi, Roku TV and comfy couches. Some issues with appliances and sinks, along with decor, keep me from giving 5 stars for meeting expectations. Lots of potential if refreshed. Would stay again!
If you've read the other reviews then you already know that the owner responds to negative reviews almost universally with "you should have contacted me to give me the opportunity to address your concerns." Well, I have. On my second day there I wrote him a friendly email with a 5 item list of issues, some of them major. From his responses I deduce that this is a man that needs to be right and make his property sound good rather than listen to feedback. A simple "will take care of it" would have gotten him a positive review, but as his responses were rather on the skeptical side, I was seriously tempted to give it 3 stars and not 4.
The main issue with the trailer, in my opinion, is that it is significantly off-level (tilted). This in an of itself is only a source of minor discomfort due to doors that swing open and the mattress that works its way down-slope through the night. The real issue is that due to the design of the bathtub, all water running down the shower walls promptly winds up on the kitchen floor and soaks into the kitchen carpet and particle-board furniture. This is not a plumbing leak, since this would immediately stop happening if the trailer was brought back to level.
I feel that the issue is significant for two reasons:
1) It's unpleasant to step on soggy carpet each time you sit down to eat, and it took about 3 days to dry once we found a way to avoid the spill, see below.
2) The furniture is visibly falling apart due to long-term moisture damage, which, it has been my experience, always goes with mold growth and is thus a health concern.
The owner did not agree with either of my observations on the above, preferring to tell me that the trailer is not significantly tilted and that there is no mold because "he has never smelled any". I'll let that speak for itself. To his credit, he offered a refund for the remaining stay, something that I declined because clearly it would be too late to find affordable accommodations on a moment's notice.
If you do stay here, be sure to place a towel on the hallway floor to arrest the flow of water. A dry towel is usually able to absorb the amount produced during a short shower.
I gave it 4 stars because the location is great and the trailer is well-stocked with pretty much everything you might need. And Nestor, it would be much easier to level the trailer than to deal with disappointed renters.
