  • Good Location - Needs Deep Clean


    Home is in a good location - quiet and private. Big backyard. Needs a deep clean and a bug spraying. Check-in process was easy. There were trash bags, linens, dishes, and toilet paper. You should bring paper towels and an extra blanket for your bed, hair dryer, spices, etc. Close to downtown area and stores.

    Manager's Response:

    Owner's response: "Jennifer, the right vacation home is everything, and we're disappointed if this wasn't the one for you.

    - We ask all potential guests to read the listing in its entirety so that know what amenities are offered to our guests. We do not offer extra blankets, hair dryers, or spices and they are not items we have ever listed. We have not had any requests for any of these items in the past.

    We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests. We will continue to strive for the 5-star experiences we know we can deliver."

  • Clean and nice place to stay


    We were there to attend a wedding so this was the perfect place to hang our hats. It is clean and importantly, bug free! Others have complained of cockroaches. They have obviously resolved that issue. I would stay there again.

    The house was not very clean or well prepared, listed amenities were not available, there were several roaches and spiders, I could not even stay there one night. And my guest contact was rude and unhelpful. The whole experience was a nightmare.
