Clean but very basic

  • 3 of 5

House was clean.The ad stated property had cable television, it did not. It would have been nice if there were a few hangers in the closers and a mirror besides just in the bathroom to make it more efficent with only 1 bathroom. Clean but bare bones, not even a trash can in the bathroom...

2-Night Stay

  • 3 of 5

The property was clean and well stocked with bath towels, conveniently located to both downtown and the academy. The bedroom with the three twin beds, had two beds missing their top sheets. It appeared that the two tops sheets, from those beds, were being used as curtains in the front bedroom. There were no full-length mirrors, except a mirror above the bathroom sink. The closets had no hangers for clothing, so we could not hang-up or unpack our belongings. The front bedroom closet does not have a rod, to begin with. No trash can in the bathroom. I would also suggest getting WiFi, as it is a necessity for lap top computers, and IPads, and the like. We could not use our lap top, or IPad, because of no WiFi. I believe if these issues were taken care of, I would have rated the property five stars out of five.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. You have alerted me to issues that I was not aware of. We had curtains in all bedrooms, trash can in bath and hangers in closet. Apparently they have been taken and housekeeping failed to notify us. There is no excuse for housekeeping allowing sheets on the windows. I will visit house immediately. Thank you for the info.

Nice house with plenty of room for three adults and a child.

  • 4 of 5

Good time in the small town of Culver. We enjoyed our stay and it was a nicely decorated and remodeled house, but were disappointed that the front bedroom by the street had no curtains so we didn't use it. The dishwasher wouldn't work so we washed what we needed to reuse by hand. Otherwise we were comfortable and central to two locations we needed to be. We would rent it again.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your Culver visit. I thought we had curtains in that bedroom so I will look into that this week. The cleaning service ran the dishwasher when they arrived. Thank you for letting me know about the missing kitchen towels. We are purchasing more to replace them. Hope to see you again soon- Susie

nice - however

  • 3 of 5

We booked our stay night before. Did received conformation, however, when we arrived we had been sent the wrong address. After calling received correct address. Owner has multiple rentals and did not know which one we had actually booked. We arrived in the dark and there where NO lights on porch or in rental.

Owner's Response: Kathryn, Please accept my apologies. I do not want this to happen to another renter. Could you please forward the email VRBO sent you with the wrong address. It will help them locate where the error in the system is. I'll also change out our light fixture to a photo cell for the front porch. Thank you for alerting me to improvements that are beneficial for renters. Hope you enjoyed the home and will return. Susie
