  • First VRBO


    The property was extremely clean, however, the online photos were misleading in the presentation of how much room there actually is. The biggest issue was that the bedrooms only had 1 outlet for electric accessories and 1/2 of each of those outlets were used by each room's AC. The kitchen and main bathroom ha plenty of outlets. There was only about 1 foot of space on either side of the bed in 2 bedrooms. This residence has been updated nicely with a few exceptions. The handle on the main microwave was broken and that microwave didn't work. A drinking glass had a small chunk chipped in the rim. This may be running on a shoestring as there are items inside that need repair. The outside needs a lot of repair and some cleaning up in the parking and lounging spaces outside. The parking was off-street which was nice, but awkward when the attached VRBO resident arrived. This VRBO is best for people who just need a place to sleep and clean up each day. As I stated, the pictures are misleading on the true amount of space in each room. The washer and dryer are outside along with a table, but not protected nor inviting to use due to the rust on the skin of each appliance. This also applies to the gas grill outside. The carport and "garden " area needs a lot of work as well.

    Owner's response: "Floyd, we want all of our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we're sorry that you experienced some issues during your trip.

    - The pictures in the listing were taken by a professional photographer and are a good representation of the house. The listing is accurate, and there is plenty of space for those who visit. We are not just a point of contact to sleep and clean up, we have lots of guests who enjoy the space for hours at a time.
    - The microwave wasn't broken when you came in and since we accommodate 8 guests at once we provide 2 microwaves, one is beside the sink and the other one is on the wall.
    - We checked all the drinking glasses and found no chipped glasses.
    - Per the listing, we provide parking for one vehicle, however, as a courtesy I allow my guests to park more than one car since I have plenty of parking.
    - We do not have the washer and dryer as an amenity, they are for the cleaning company only. We advised you of that before you left.
    - Some rooms have one outlet but the outlet has more than one plugin so you can easily charge your computer or phone while the AC is running.
    - The garden is serviced and cleaned weekly, as you noticed we have trees surrounding the house and lots of leaves drop daily.

    We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests. We will continue to deliver the 5-star experiences we are known for."

  • Needs some updating but good location


    Good location. House has some issues that I reported to Evolve Management Company.Laundry was outside, very inconvenient. Pictures were better than actual house. 3 out of 5 stars for this house.

    From the owner: "Leza, thanks for staying with us. We are sorry that you experienced issues during your visit.

    -The Central AC unit is located on the roof between the two lights. It's easy to miss, but it's there. However, we ask guests not to use it because guests complain about not being personalized and having the same temperature in the entire house. So we went ahead and installed an A/C unit in every room so that every guest can adjust the cooling temperature accordingly.

    - The two strips of the window blind are longer than the rest so sometimes they're not easily closed unless adjusted however they are not broken. After we purchased the new blinds, we noticed that all the window blinds needed were to make those two strips shorter.

    We thank you for your feedback, as it allowed us to make adjustments that we didn't know were necessary before. We do hope you consider staying with us again!"
