  • Misleading


    Almost every window had a crack or a hole, patched only with clear tape. Some windows had no panes, just the storm windows to keep out weather. The "queen" bed is an uncomfortable full mattress on a queen frame - that's squeaks horribly every time you move. The couch bed was also very uncomfortable.

    The previous guests did not follow the checkout procedure and no one else ever fixed it b/c there was hair on the pillowcases when I arrived, indicating the beds were slept in and not remade with clean sheets.

    The water pressure was so low and the over programmed spaceship of a washing machine couldn't understand that, so every load of wash took over an hour.

    A previous guest left almost a full fridge of food - already prepared things and leftovers starting to rot that I had to clean out. And, finally, despite having over 20 spoons in the drawer, there were only about 5 forks, which made the family birthday party we tried to have a little awkward. Not a baking pan in the place.

  • Badly neglected


    The master bedroom bed has a Full sized mattress, NOT a Queen! The grass was 6-8 inches high and remained uncut the entire 2 WEEKS we were there (Only 2 rainy days during our stay.) We got out of the car and were SWARMED by mosquitos! We ran for the screen porch. The screens in the dirty, TINY screen porch are full of holes and some of the screens are torn away from the frame. No one would ever want to sit on the flattened, moldy seat cushions. The washing machine was jammed full of stinky, sour laundry. One smoke detector was dangling from a wire and a second one was completely missing from it's base. The WIFI instructions from EVOLVE were wrong. We called the contact number and a guy named Steve helped us. We told Steve about the laundry, washed-out driveway, smoke detectors, and grass. He got someone to out the next day to deal with 3 of those things. The only reason we're giving 2 stars instead of one is b/c Steve was so responsive. My hair dryer tripped the circuit breakers no matter which outlet I used. We killed carpenter ants inside the house the entire time we were there. Several windows have broken glass. Broken storm windows and screens have holes. Dirty, broken mini blinds in bedrooms. No curtains or blinds anywhere else.We invited a friend to visit us. She called from the road and said, "I'm at the address you gave me but this can't be right, this place is pretty run down." That said it all.Might be better in winter.

  • Acceptable accommodations but somewhat misleading


    The main room was nice, although the pictures make it seem larger. There were several issues & misleading descriptions:

    1. The screens on the porch were all open at the bottom. This lead to a huge amount of bugs not only coming into the porch, but then into the house even when you tried to move quickly to shut the door behind you. I got 3 mosquito bites immediately upon our arrival.

    2. The main bathroom door does not close properly - we were unable to latch it.

    3. The main bedroom lists a queen sized bed but it is definitely a full. My husband is 6'2 and felt very cramped.

    4. There were only 3 dining chairs at the table. Odd choice for a 4-person table. One of us had to sit at the raised kitchen bar during meals and games.

    5. The "firepit" outside was filled with debris - we weren't even sure it was a firepit. Plus there are no chairs even if we wanted to clear it out and light a fire. If there aren't outdoor chair options, I recommend making a note so people will bring camping chairs.

    6. The chairs on the screened in porch were filthy - I tried to clean them off but there was long-term dirt and mold that would not wipe off.

    7. It appeared that the cleaning team left before they had finished. There was an unwashed comforter and towels in the washing machine and a load of sheets in the dryer.

    We have stayed at many VRBO properties and this was the first time we felt mislead and that the property was overpriced - definitely not a good value.

  • Love this little house, perfect for my family.


    This is our second stay here and it affords everything a family needs from a complete kitchen to a fully loaded bathroom and laundry access. Front yard is nice for the kids to play. I have very minor complaints, but honestly they're not worth mentioning because overall this home is clean, inviting and comfortable. I would definitely recommend to other travelers.
