  • Nice bungalow


    Overall, enjoyed stay at this property. Suspect photos posted slightly enhanced physical condition of interior and exterior. Interior was clean and tidy. For me, there were too many extra furnishings that presented clutter. Great to have a washer/dryer unit in structure. Came in handy. Larger refrigerator was a surprise. Did not find extra bath towels as detailed in arrival instructions. Otherwise, check in/out when well. Property manager had left good detailed notes. Our biggest hassle was with third party administrator - Evolve. Our confirmation went through upon making reservations. We were to receive checkin instructions 24 hours prior to arrival. Never received an email. Had trouble logging onto their site and difficulty creating an account. They had limited help options in their menu so kept getting routed back to the main menu. No phone contact listed. Finally, found a number after searching the web. Fortunately, agent was able to send checkin instructions couple hours prior to our arrival. Bit frustrating while traveling and having to reach out to them. Have book several Vbro reservations. Never had issue like this and never dealt with Evolve. In the end, all worked out.

  • Clean & Cozy


    Check in was easy. Maintenance is friendly, on site to check in, and there to help with any little glitches - TV, AC, whatever. House is clean, quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed our two-week stay.

  • Not as described. Disappointed.


    Upon arrival late night observed an alarming sign on garage door. Garage was boarded up. Neighborhood has homes that are boarded up/abandoned. Landlord didn’t address issue of no hot water. Took cold showers everyday. Loud music shook cottage all day and night. No sleep. Asked for resulution no response from landlord. Disappointed.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Albertina, 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. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - The garage door was covered to try to stop dust from the new construction next door as several new houses were being built and older homes were being remodeled in the neighborhood. Thankfully, this has all been completed.
    - As soon as you reached out to us regarding the hot water, we went to the home and found the temperature had been accidentally turned down. We turned it back up and thought there were no further issues.
    - We try our best to provide a great environment for guests, but sometimes external factors are out of our control. During your stay, the church across the street had a special mass one night and played music during the gathering. We're sorry this impacted your stay.
    The owners do all they can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests!

  • Quaint & cozy with tropical peaceful backyard


    This VRBO was the perfect size & location for our stay. It’s in a quiet neighborhood and was close to our family we were visiting. I would recommend this place & it was so nice to have our privacy.
