"Great location for a vacation rental, needs major improvements"
Left on 11/06/2013 for a stay in October 2013 | FrankReviewed Nov 6, 2013Stayed Oct 2013
Location of the house is great and accessible, yet secluded. Great potential!.
Unfortunately for a property that is managed by a company, I found the houese poorly maintained, beginning with the furniture on the front porch and patio, very dirty!!. The house had initially a moldy smell that was neutralized with an entire Febreeze aerosol. The living room rug should be removed and replaced even though seemed relatively clean gave the appearance of an old and dirty house. First room lines were stained and dirty, we didn't sleep on those beds. Towels were old; in general the house needs a very deep cleaning. This is the third time through the years that my partner and I have rented properties from your company and had never seemed a rental property with these deficiencies. Person inspecting it needs to put attention to details. Read more
Thank you for the helpful review. We are sorry that you felt like the house was poorly maintained. It is an older house with older furniture and priced accordingly as one of our least expensive homes; however, that is not an excuse for it not be cleaned up to our typical standard. We will discuss with the housekeeper and be sure that attention is given to that. We apologize for your experience with that, as you know that is not typical with our rentals! We do hope you come stay with us again.
