Response from the owner 1st I am sorry she didn't enjoy the rental. 2nd Her review saying (DISCRIPTION HAS CAHNGED SINCE I RENTED IT) That is FALSE! (Some may not like it but if it is False that is against my Business! They should report that to Flip/Key also. They have a section for FRAUD. The description has not been changed in 8 years? Some things have been added Hard wood Floors, Massage Chair, 4 inch insulated cover over the rear Deck. Always trying to make better. You can look at a review from 4-2014 ( Nice & Cozy )On that review it say's it was the (Old Bat Cave Post Office, Beverly reserved on 8-17-15 came in on 9-18-15 She called to say they had checked in. I went over to have her sign paper work that they took possession & any questions. I asked her how she liked it, She said she didn't. I said I have never had anyone not like it? I asked what she didn't like about it & she just shook her head couldn't tell me, so I asked her husband & he said he could sleep in a tent. She said it wasn't what she had expected! I told her she could go back and look at the way it is described it is exactly as seen. She added in her review that she had before paid $400.00 more that is 33% more than she paid me & gotten something much nicer. ( I can say most of my rentals are 30% repeat & it would be more than that but I am already reserved when they ask to rent. (I WILL STAND ON MY OTHER REWIEWS) I would have more reviews BUT I have quit asking for them because Flip/Key and all the rest of them ask to many PERSONAL Questions they want to get into your FACEBOOK page? I have had renters send me Emails saying they would like to leave a review BUT they ask to many questions.
