Relaxing Stay (with Suggestions)
Kathy & LaToya W.
"This was my second time staying at this property. For the price you are getting a good bargain. The TV room is cozy with enough sittings room for at least 7 adults and 3 small chairs for children. The TV room has cable and a DVD player (several DVD's to watch). The kitchen is stocked with pots & pans, dishes and a couple of seasonings (salt & pepper, etc.) for meals. The living room / dinning room is roomy and overlooks the lake. The bathroom while it's small has everything you need and maybe even a few extras. The 3 bedrooms (1 downstairs and 2 upstairs) are comfortable with comfy bed sheets and comforters. The yard is roomy with a relaxing view of the lake. The checkin and checkout procedures are easy and the Fresh Water customer service representatives (who handle the booking) are very professional, helpful and a breeze to communicate with. I do recommend this rental and will be back again. There are several things I do want to mention as suggestions. 1)There is a neighbor across the street who allows his dog to roam everyones yard in the immediate area. I'm sure the permanent neighbors don't have an issues with it because if they did, it wouldn't be happening. However I found it a little disrespectful and rude being that there are renters who may not be comfortable with this or may be scared of dogs. The neighbor has a very large yard so there is no reason why the dog should be roaming across the street on the rental property throughout the day. My dog (small yorkie) came along with me and he had a few barking matches with this dog who was on the rental property barking at my dog through the TV room window. I was afraid to allow my dog outside for fear of the two dogs getting into some kind of fight. The neighbor should at least be respectful when he can clearly see that the house is being rented out. 2) On both occasions that I have rented this house the guy who maintains the property arrives early and walks around the propery appearing to be fixing things in the yard on the departure day...my question is, why can't he wait until after the renters are gone? I'm wondering if this is done intentionally to make you feel rushed to get out the house. My rental time was extended to 3pm and he was there at 12:30...with his car backed all the way up by the side door (in the way). We ended up departing at 2pm because it was uncomfortable with him being there. Both times I've rented, I had to ask him to move his car out the way to load our car."
