  • Stay away - Doesn't worth the money - Deceiving representation of the house


    We are well-versed and experienced in what to expect when booking a house for a short-term stay and calibrate our expectations accordingly.

    However, this property was not only a disappointing experience but is on the verge of fraud.

    1. The property is old and poorly maintained.

    2. There are serious safety concerns to address - if you have young kids with you - stay away

    3. The property is not being cleaned properly - towels, sheets, and general cleaning are disappointing.

    4. The worst of it was the lack of proper response to problems presented:

    4.1. The toilet was clogged twice, beyond what we could do to handle it ourselves. When they came the first time, they opened the clog but did not clean after them (left dirty wet towels on the floor).

    4.2 The property managers did not take our comments and requests seriously, which felt more like dismissal. The solutions offered were insulting at best.

    To remove any doubt, we have documented photos of everything mentioned above, which we shared with the property managers.

    Unfortunately, we came to the city in one of the busiest weeks of the year and couldn't find an alternative for all of us. Otherwise, we would have checked out right after the first night.

    Bottom line: stay away from this rental alternative. It is not worth the money, and will only ruin your stay in the city.

  • House needs attention


    While it is interesting to stay in a 140 year old house, this house needs a few repairs

    All in all a good location.

    Not for someone having difficulty with stairs- narrow.

    Great location, very nice property for the most part - only issue we had was that they keep nothing in stock. No soap, no shampoo, no cooking basics, no coffee filters, etc. Bring everything with you!

  • Suitable place but needs some improvements


    My family stayed at this property to welcome the birth of our new son into the world. They found the property fine for their needs because we spent most of the time out of the house.The photos in the listing show a bright, cheery interior that is very welcoming. Unfortunately, it seems that was a benefit of a sunny day. The lighting in the house is dim and probably could benefit from upgraded lightbulbs or fixtures. The main level had plenty of space for the family to spread out which was nice so everyone wasn't crowding when there was downtime in the house. The main floor has uneven flooring which is something to be mindful of. The fridge and other appliances can't sit level because the flooring is wavy.Given past reviews about the property's cleanliness, I worked with the property manager to have my own cleaners come and take care of the house before my family arrived. That worked out wonderfully, and I appreciate the flexibility.I don't think this property will make the top of our list in the future, but it is suitable when other choices are not available.
