  • Great stay


    Property was as listed and perfect for our visit. A few things were broken/damaged upon our arrival but we let them know and communication with the property manager was great.

  • Water problems


    This is a mixed review.The house itself is great. It’s in an appealing historic neighborhood and still manages to have a lot of space.The kitchen and bathrooms are updated and the beds are very supportive and comfortable.However, we had a major water problem right away. The house floor drains were blocked. The first clue was the standing gross water in the dishwasher. The second clue was the blocked drain in the first floor shower that had to be manually cleared (gross again!) to make the water go down. But the worst is that those first showers led to flooding in the basement that flowed into the basement bedroom. This was clearly black water (I won’t get into those gross details).We had to leave the house in the morning and it should not be rented again until this problem is thoroughly remedied. We realized after the fact that someone else wrote a review about this in March and yet they still kept our reservation.I do have to say that the owner, Evolve and VRBO were all great to work with about this. They fully refunded our money and gave us money for the replacement hotel.

    The property was nice. However the basement flooded. The main bathroom shower leaked in the bathroom and basement. Dishwasher didn’t work and it smelled spoiled when we arrived. We asked for a compromise by having a late check out but was denied. Probably wouldn’t rebook.
