  • Somebody always watching


    First, I just want to state the house is beautiful and very spacious. The neighborhood was wonderful and the area was great. The house needs a good cleaning. We found a dirty sock waiting for us in the main bathroom. The floors were dirty and the rugs could use a washing and the carpet could use a steam clean. We found pet urine in the family room by the deck. The shower liner was moldy. The neighbor, also guest contact, went into the garage behind the house daily, which made us feel like we were being watched. On our last full day there he decided to mow the lawn, do some weeding, and in the process smooshed our dogs pet waste, which made it difficult to pick it up. He also flagged each one, which was unnecessary, since we were leaving the following day and we’re going to pick it all up. We ended up having to leave because it was too loud and my plans to get in the hot tub had to change. We were not notified anywhere on the contract that maintenance was to take place on that day so we could’ve made other arrangements. I could see him right outside the window on the riding mower. We could only take 2 hours of it before we had to leave and hope he’d be done by the time we got back. The owners personal belongings did not bother us. I did contact Evolve about this but nothing was done. They need a new ckeaning service and new guest contact.

  • Great place in a convenient location.


    Overall we would give the place a 5, but there are some things that might be helpful for people to know.1. The first picture shown is of the water and sand. I assumed that was a view from the house which is incorrect. The house is close to the water, but not steps. More like down the block and across the street.2. The owners do live in the house during times it is not rented. Their personal belongings are around the house. Not a big deal, but some people might be uncomfortable with this.3. The little garage behind the house appears to be shared with the neighbors, so we had neighbors in the yard a couple of different days. The neighbors are friendly and stayed out of the way.We met with our kids from all over the midwest and south and the place accommodated us all nicely. We love to cook though and would recommend bringing a large frying pan, but everything else was available!

  • Okay house


    The house provided us with plenty of space to spread out. This house clearly has someone living in it when not occupied by renters - when you walk in you feel as if you have walked into a functioning residence where the owner just left for your stay. There are many many personal items in each room; we felt a bit like we were invading another persons home but after some hunting we were able to locate what we needed (except for soap, shampoo, and conditioner which we had to buy). Renters with small children will need to bring their own baby items like pack n play and high chair. The four bathrooms consist of two full bathrooms, one half bath, one laundry with a toilet and one shower outside the sauna.

    Not all bedroom doors close fully and not one of mattresses does not have a mattress cover.

    We cannot comment on the sauna or the fire pit as we did not utilize these. The hot tub and bbq grill were nice amenities and the spacious backyard was wonderful. We also enjoyed the location—there is a big park and beach access a short walk down the street.

  • Cute place in a convenient location


    The house was great for all of our family to meet from all over the Midwest. The hot tub worked great and everyone took advantage of the sauna as well. The kitchen was fully stocked with basic needs.

    Just a quick note that the house is actually not on the water. It is down the block and across the street from it. The public beach is about a half mile away. We did not use the beach as we were there with our boat to enjoy the water:)

  • Great overall stay


    Great overall stay! Comfortably fit our family of 7. The kitchen had coffee, spices, pans and a crock pot for all your cooking needs. Hot tub and sauna was a big hit after a long day of exploring! We also enjoyed playing a few board games they had there. Just an fyi beach and skate park are 1 mile away not in the backyard and owner has a few items of there own in the home that was a little off setting. But other then that was still a great stay! Would stay again!
