Great house for family or friends trip

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for a group of friends or a family trip to the Conroe area. We did a short guys golf trip to the area. The house is in a great location. The house was clean and well taken care of. The one bad review of this house is complete nonsense. We had to cut our trip short and the owner helped us in a timely manner to rearrange our travel plans. Great house. Highly recommend.

Needs Serious Deep Cleaning - Comfortable 4 BR, 3 Bath, Home - Well Equiped

  • 3 of 5

Start with Positives:

1. Well equipped, Kitchen – 2 Large Refrigerators, Ice Maker, Coffee Maker (Keurig & Drip), Pots/Pans, Mugs, Dishes, Silverware, Knives, Wine Opener, Toaster, Oven, Margarita Blender, etc.

2. Entertainment – 2 Large TVs, 1 Small TV, Direct TV, 3 Music Systems, 1 Karaoke System, 50+ Movie DVDs, Poker Chips, wi-fi Internet (poor signal, needs a range extender to cover home & backyard)

3. Club house access at walking distance. Full fitness center with 4 covered & 4 open tennis courts, FREE to use.

4. Bedrooms – Large MBR w/ King Bed, 2nd BR w/ King Bed, 3rd BR w/ 4 Full Size Bunk Beds (comfortably sleeps only 1 adult/teen on each bed), 4th BR (1st Floor) with Queen Bed. Good comfortable mattresses, clean sheets, comforters need to be cleaned. Plenty of pillows and blankets, towels, wash cloths, etc. and a Full-Size Air Mattress.

5. Full Baths: One on main floor, and two on 2nd floor which are clean and modern.

6. Backyard is nice (mainly grass), dock area is nice to spend time close to water. Drawback, not private as there is a public boat launch across, which creates noise early in the morning (fishers). Cannot see the main lake from the backyard (check out Goggle Maps for home location detail).

7. Denise is very helpful with instant text message replies.

Few Negatives:

1. White sofa covers and chair covers are not clean white. Please wash and bleach them.

2. Home appears clean when you walk in, but when you live there you find it dirty (desperately needs a deep clean). Pls fire your cleaning crew and hire someone responsible.

3. Patio and lanai furniture is very dirty (pressure wash needed), we used towels to sit. Spider webs all over the ceiling, dead bugs and roaches close to grill. We used a broom to clean.

4. On arrival dish washer was filthy from outside with dirty dishes inside. Dirty laundry (un washed) in the washer, dryer filled with clean towels and wash cloths.

5. Greeted with 3 instances of Roaches, near cellar and 2nd BR. (pest control needed)

6. Garage is full, no car parking. Extremely dirty. Golf cart battery died in 3 minutes w/ overnight charge. Had to push it back.

7. Deposit refunded after 2 weeks in full, after a friendly reminder to Denise.

Overall, the home and amenities gets a 4 star rating, but cleanliness gets only a 1 star rating. Therefore, please change your cleaning staff and get a Pest Service. It’s a small cost compared to amount I paid for 4 nights stay.

Owner's Response: Mihir, You are not telling the truth. You got creative by first listing the pros to make your review look legitimate but it is not. The house was clean, there were no bugs (we have pest control service) and the outdoor cushions look like the day we bought them six weeks later. At first, I thought the cleaning ladies may have forgotten to finish the job but after speaking with the housekeeper and confirming the condition of the house and the new looking outdoor cushions in person, it is official that you made the whole thing up. I manually returned your deposit early instead of allowing the automatic setting to do the job because you called me and I thought you could use the money because it was right after Christmas. Another fabricated story of yours.

Spectacular house on lake with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous house with high end decor and tons of amenities. The owner obviously cares about his/her guest as thoughtful details can be found throughout the property. Enjoyed the view from the oversized porches. Also appreciated that all the bedrooms had large beds. No one had to sleep in a single bed...that's a plus for our family! Look forward to vacationing here again in the future.

Great Thanksgiving Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Tuscan Lake House celebrating Thanksgiving with our family. This was a special time with my parents who are in their 80's and gave our family an opportunity to be under one roof with one another. All the beds were very comfortable. The location was wonderful and we had a great time fishing from the pier. The pier and boat slip was really nice and the yard was wonderful. It was a quiet location and that was something we were looking for. The beds in the house were very comfortable. We would recommend this home for anyone wanting to have a quiet and nice place to stay. We would truly consider staying here again in the future.

Beautiful Property, Excellent Customer Service

  • 5 of 5

A group of our close friends stayed at the Tuscan Lake House and enjoyed it thoroughly. The property is absolutely beautiful and in great condition. Moreover, Denise is unbelievably responsive. When we showed up (a little late), there was a small issue with the air-conditioning. I left Denise a voicemail close to midnight - not expecting her to pick up at all and she called me back within 5 minutes with a solution.

We'd absolutely come back again!

Our Mediterranean Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

No long lines at the airport or concerns about lost luggage or passports...at least not with this Mediterranean vacation house. The sea was Lake Conroe and the sunsets were spectacular. The house was so large, but yet so cozy. We enjoyed the docks in the mornings and evenings. The living room was the coziest place to visit and watch the scary Halloween movies. The dining room offered a pleasant Tuscan feel as we ate on the antique table that looked like it came from a vineyard patio in Italy. The beds were so comfortable and we couldn't ask for anything more. The best yet through VRBO! Thanks!!!
