  • Wonderful gem of a home

    This property made our stay in Colorado amazing! It was perfectly located to all of the things we did! The home has so much character and I would stay there again in a heart beat!

    When arrived we thought prefect size for everyone. The upstairs during the day is hot, no a/c. The plumbing backed up every time you use the dishwasher, it would back up the shower. Called the property contact and had someone come in. I think the most irritating part was the kitchen and bathroom door. Kitchen - had a coffeemaker with no coffee. Don’t have any kitchen items to make a casserole. I went and bought the kitchen staples to cook. The laundry room - whoever folds the towels needs to go back and do it again. It was all just stuffed on a shelve. The downstairs bathroom door - does pop open when u are in it. Irritating. These minor items can be easily resolved and then I would say it was enjoyable. The Dining chairs - they are too old, uncomfortable to sit and play a game.

    The property was great! Overall, we were very happy! Especially appreciated the nice beds and bedding, all of the fluffy white towels and nice hand soaps throughout the home. The space was great. It got a little warm upstairs during the day, but sleeping was comfortable. Only thing that could have been improved (and this is SO slight) was the kitchen items - perhaps another sheet tray and another large pot for cooking. But what was provided was great! We loved our stay!!!

    2/5

    I really wanted to like this house but this house is not ready to be rented especially for large families. The house is advertised as accommodating 8 adults. When we first got there at check-in time the cleaning lady was still cleaning and we had to wait until she finished to get in. She then stated she needed to come back and leave a broom on the front porch because the house needed one. As we started getting settled we notice that the house was nice a cool downstairs and the upstairs was and hot and had a small fan in one room. I received a text from the owner welcoming me and if I needed anything to just let her know. I asked about the AC and she stated that their no AC in the second floor. She explains that they were supposed to come to installed and cancelled on her. These days were in the 90s and you could really feel the heat upstairs even with windows open. The first couple of nights was very uncomfortably hot until it got cold outside and then it was very uncomfortably cold since it had no heater upstairs either. Now the house is old but has been remodeled so I can understand some things not being 100%. When i first used the downstairs bathroom i closed the door and the handle came off. Then I'm sitting on the toilet and the doors swings open because the doors are old and don't really catch on to the wall. So during the whole stay we had to put a bag or towel to stop the door from opening. That was not acceptable. Now the house also states it had 4 bedrooms but in reality it is only 3 bedrooms because the downstairs rooms are two rooms joint together with no door in between so their is no privacy for the rooms and you really would have to know who is staying in each room since you can see everything and you have to go through the smaller room to use the bathroom. Now, we had 8 people staying in total with two teenagers. The following morning when we made breakfast we saw that the house only had 3 coffee cups, had one spoon and spatula. We showered and had to share towels because they only left us with 6 towels for 8 people. Don't understand how they thought that was going to work. The next day we were going to have a BBQ and went to start the grill. First the grill was disgusting, it had old food stuck to the grill inside and who knows what it was or how long it was there. The second thing was that it had no tank. I don't understand how we are suppose to use a gas grill with no propane tank. There is more but I would suggest another pl

    Manager's Response:

    Hello Ernesto, we want our guests to arrive at a vacation home that is 100% ready for their stay, so we take the cleanliness of our properties seriously! We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - We are deeply sorry for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay. There were missing items from the previous reservation so the cleaning and upkeep of the home took a little longer than expected.
    - The home is older but that is part of its charm and what makes it so special. We are constantly making updates on the home to provide our guests with the best possible experience. We will take your feedback into consideration when making further updates to the property.
    - During the time of your stay Colorado Springs was in a stage 2 Burn Ban and the grill was not supposed to be in use. That is the reason the tank was not available but we have reached out to our cleaning company to make sure the home and grill are fully cleaned to prevent this from happening with future guests.
    We appreciate your feedback as we continue to improve for better stays!
