  • Fun vacation for the kids


    There were tons of things for all the cousins to do including the trampoline, the boats, the beach nearby and feeding the fish. Overall we would def stay again since i think the kids could have played even more. The kitchen was also really nice

  • Not Great


    The house and property was fine. The issue was when we arrived the place had not been cleaned at all. We had to clean all the trash and food scraps that were left all over the kitchen. Also had to wash all the sheets and laundry. My wife and I ended up making sheets out of towels that we think were clean. Called the manager several times on Sunday and the phone went straight to voicemail. No help at all.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Emily, we take it seriously when guests let us know that we missed the mark, and after sending your feedback to the homeowner, they’d like to share the following:
    - We sincerely apologize for the property not meeting our cleanliness standards upon your arrival. This isn't acceptable, and we're sorry for the inconvenience this caused. We would have acted earlier if informed, including refunding the cleaning fee which we are working on now to make this right
    - Upon receiving this information, our cleaning team unlocked the cabinet to provide fresh towels and sheets. They also offered to perform a cleaning, although we understand that this might have caused additional inconvenience at the time
    - Our cleaning team has indicated that there was an error in entering the check-out/check-in dates in their schedule which resulted in the missed cleaning. To prevent such occurrences, we will now personally oversee weekly bookings and the cleaning schedule. Additionally, we will be the main point of contact to address guest communications moving forward
    Thanks for your valuable feedback as we continue to improve for future guests.
