  • Wonderful Home


    The home was in a perfect location to all that I had planned to do, and the park pass was a great perk!

    The only downside is that we all pay a cleaning fee when we rent a property. I feel that with the check-out procedures, we are paying a cleaning fee yet having to do quite a bit of cleaning before we can check out.

    If you have dogs also, the yard is riddled with cat feces, which I understand stray cats are not manageable, but it was excessive.

    There should also be disclosure if someone is living in the basement or the garage and attached space which is not accessible for guests at this property.

    Manager's Response:

    From the owner: "Thank you for the feedback, Nicole. We have noticed a stray cat in the yard on occasion, although it sounds like the kitty may have put down roots! The landscaper has since combed the yard. I also wanted to assure you that there is no one living in the garage or basement. They are just used for storage.
    Thank you for the stars.
    Happy New Year!"

  • Lovely house and garden


    I really enjoyed this house! It is big and comfortable and has a lot of character. Not your bland functional rental! I had a busy schedule while in TorC but wished I had more time just to relax in the house and enjoy the space and ambiance. The garden is lovely, as is the screened in porch. Really a special place.

  • Excellent stay


    The Prickly Pear house was welcoming and more spacious than we anticipated. The eclectic feel of the home and garden is wonderful. Would highly recommend!

    Love this house. Quiet neighborhood close to town. The yard attracts delightful birds. Older home but nicely updated. All appliances work great. Bedrooms are larger than I’d expected. Hope to stay again.
