"The location was great, just a couple blocks from Downtown Douglas, the river, and the Blue Star Highway for quick access to anywhere we wanted to go. The home was beautiful with more outdoor amenities than we could appreciate on an overcast October weekend, but the pool looks quite relaxing, and the unit has a full covered porch and a deck off a sliding door facing the pool. The unit was clean, the heat worked well, we had plenty of hot water for all of us.
The only thing I'll mention, since it echoes another review, is that the owner could do a little more on communication. There is a rental agreement that came attached with the quote, but I didn't notice it, and the communication speaks nothing of the agreement, or that it must be signed and returned. A day before our stay, I emailed the owner asking about access, keys, information, and she responded that we had not returned the rental agreement. She re-sent it and we got it taken care of. A little more intentional and specific communication in her responses about signing and returning the agreement would go a long way. But in the end it was a small concern that was worked out promptly and did not deter from our overall positive experience.
Oh, and be sure to take a selfie with the unit's coffee maker. I think it's the current world record holder for slowest coffee maker in operation. :)"
