"This review is for a rental two houses down from this house, same owner (Robert). We inquired about this house but told it was rented and we were directed to a website with multiple rental houses from Robert. We rented the "Tumbleweed" house (not on VRBO), 2 houses from this rental. Plain but very functional house, right on Dunlap Lake (lower Guadalupe River) - 3 bedrooms / 2 baths, 4 beds, 3 fold out couches, open dining / kitchen area, small back deck (gets very slick) that leads to steps to a very nice concrete midpoint area we used for grilling. Then there is a steep decline down to the lake with 2 beautiful, mature Cypress trees surrounded by a newer wooden deck (gets very slick) and a fun rope swing. We had a blast at the rental and would return if it wasn't for some shady pricing technique the owner used. We originally set it up for 12 people, then we realized the unit "Sleeps 16" as advertised by Robert on his rental website, so we invited 4 more and let Robert know that 4 more might be coming. Robert said the price would increase, due to - "Like a hotel we charge more as the number goes up due to wear and tear, etc." We understood, and let him know we still wanted the rental.
Well, 2 of the additional 4 couldn't make it, so only 14 of us stayed at the rental (8 kids) on Saturday night, otherwise it was only 10 the other nights. Upon returning home, I let Robert know (via email) that we didn't actually have 16, we only had 14 total at the house. Robert informed me that "Unfortunately 14 is the same as 16." Which erases his initial statement that - "Like a hotel we charge more as the number goes up due to wear and tear, etc."
So long story short, we loved the rental and the location, but do not agree with people lying and taking advantage of other people, so we will not return to this rental or any other rental Robert owns."
