  • Very comfortable stay


    We loved our stay in this sweet place. Everything about the place was very comfortable. We felt very at home there. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. The location was close to everything we wanted to do. The host was very kind and made sure everything was perfect. We will definitely try to stay here again. Thanks!

  • Sufficient for our needs but would not stay again


    Our first impressions were very good. The communication was excellent, the instructions were clear and helpful, and we knew if there were any issues there were a couple of contacts which were available.The house is charming as a historic neighborhood build and there has been an attempt to retain some of that charm. The black and white tiled bathroom is gorgeous and the old white trim built-in cabinets maintain the feel of that era. The master bedroom bed is very comfortable and that portion of the house gets toasty warm, while the front end is rather chilly. The furnishings of the house are overall not very cozy and the dining area feels a bit like sitting at a picnic table. It wasn't very condusive to gathering and enjoying an evening. A further disappointment was the second bed was found unclean. It was made up and looked nice until pulling back the covers to find hairs and fuzz. We also found hair in the second bathroom cabinets. Our overall experience I rated with 4 stars, but would not stay here again. The house did meet our needs to provide accomodations for our stay while taking care of some medical appointments and was reasonable for that purpose.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Pamella, thank you very much for taking the time to leave a thoughtful review. We are glad that you enjoyed this charming home overall and found many things to appreciate about it!
    - We confirmed that the house is exactly as pictured in the listing, including the furnishings and furniture. That allows guests to decide if the home will meet their needs before booking, but we realize only an in-person experience can truly give you a sense of comfort.
    - The homeowners assured us that they are exploring ways to make the dining room more comfortable.
    - The owners and their cleaning company want to apologize for the issue you encountered. They are working diligently to ensure future guests do not have any similar concerns.
    Thank you again for your feedback; we will continue to work with the owners and their local cleaning service to ensure that future guests enjoy five-star stays here.
