DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOME!

  • 1 of 5

My family of 4 adults stayed at this property for 32 days, September 28, 2016 - October 30, 2016.

My first conversation with the owner, I told her that my son and myself had horrible allergies to pet hair and therefore our service animal was hypoallergenic and didn’t shed. The owner never mentioned that this home has a full time dog that sheds all over the couches, bedding, as well as feces in the back yard that was not picked up prior. At some point there was a cat allowed in this home. The couches are full of cat/dog hair as well as the rugs, carpets and living areas.

The owner told me she didn’t smoke and that is not true as I have pictures of the owner mowing the lawn and smoking. This property is smoked in full time. The walls smell of it, as does all the furniture, linens, etc. The master bedroom smells badly of cigarette smoke. The bed is old, uncomfortable and squeaks loudly, every move you make. The shower is open (has no curtain or glass coverage). The mirrored closet door is shattered on one corner, there is dog hair stuck in the mattress. The master toilet runs and runs (5-7 minutes per flush).

The hot tub smells like mildew, the cover is ripped and taped, but ripped even more. The futon is not usable, it's mattress is very thin and it's uncomfortable to lay on. The bbq is dirty, doesn't have much gas and is missing the button to light it. There was a HUGE spider in the corner of the living room, it had made it home for quite some time before we got there. The hall bathroom shower doesn't drain. The hall bathroom door doesn't close properly. You have to use some muscle to make the door open OR shut it. The dishwasher rollers fall off every time you pull it out. A mouse was spotted in the garage. I could go on and on.

The owner lives in the garage and stores all her stuff in there. Even though she leaves at times, she is ALWAYS coming by the house, in the garage, laundry area, etc. I asked her several times to leave us alone and not come by the house while we were renting, but she refused to stay away and continued to come every day.

On day 20 I had the house cleaned by a professional company. It took 2 women 6 hours to clean this house. Initially the owner said she would pay the cleaning fee, but has since refused to refund this cost.

I could go on about how we were harassed by the owner daily, but I won't. Please take this as your warning not to stay in this home.

Awesome Location!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in July, 2016 at this house. The property is in a great location, right by FAST water. It was fully stocked, clean, and we had everything we needed. It's an older property but the interior is nice/remodeled and the house is fine. The patio overlooking the Delta is really nice, especially in the morning. Cheryl was great, very responsive. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great value for money for 10 days on the Delta. Just bring your clothes and water toys.

Cheryl was great and provided a mountain of advice for us Aussies new to The Delta and the region.

The dock is a good setup with power and lighting and is only 3 mins to fast water.

Yes the hot tub does work and so does the BBQ.

If we're ever back in the US and staying on The Delta than yes we would be back

House is nice and clean. Dock has power to charge more than one boat. And is close to fast water. Can't wait to do it again.

Disappointed from day 1

  • 1 of 5

We contacted the owner two days before our arrival because we had read the reviews about the hot tub & bbq not working as well as her living in the residence. She stated that both are now working fine and she doesn't live there, but she does live only minutes away. When we arrived, she and a friend were still cleaning the house, the hot tub was cold and she said that she didn't turn it on because it was so hot that day. We turned it on to warm it for the evening and it NEVER warmed up. We ran it for THREE DAYS STRAIGHT and it never got hot, AT ALL! She had excuse after excuse as to why it's not working and proclaimed that it worked just fine the day before we got there. The evenings were a bit chilly and it would've been awesome to use the hot tub that we paid for. The bbq did work, but it was very tricky to light it, which could be dangerous. She has a cat that meows loudly until YOU feed it and it looks like it lives in the house since there's cat hair EVERYWHERE! One of my friends is allergic and was miserable because of this. We think she lives in the house while not renting it out since she is constantly heard rummaging about in the garage and we witnessed her taking boxes of food n clothing out to her car. The house only sleeps 6ppl maximum, comfortably. Everyone else prepare to sleep on a futon, couch or the floor. The house is nice but the furniture and accommodations are greatly lacking. One bathroom shower was completely clogged with hair, the other had a shower curtain that fell on you while you showered, the kitchen table has broken chairs, one bedroom's television didn't work, she didn't mention we had to bring our own toilet paper, the refrigerator didn't get very cold so we had to put all our water in the wine fridge, and I'm sure there's a few more I forgot to mention. Finally, it took about a week or so to get our deposit back and we are STILL WAITING for the one night refund she promised us because of the hot tub issue. I was going to wait until we had heard back from her about the refund before posting my review, but I don't want anyone else to waste their money on this place because what she advertises for on here, is not what she is offering. Plus, I truly believe she lied to us when asked about these specific issues beforehand and she ruined our trip!!!
