Great place for a family get together

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and comfortable. The lack of WiFi made people put down their phones and actually interact.

1 roll of toilet paper in the entire house (which ran out on the last day). 1 mirror in the house (over the vanity in the bathroom). I had to remove the toilet bowl tank lid and pull the trip lever by hand to flush the toilet each time. The curtains were see-through so we couldn't get dressed in any room that faces the street. The shower had no water pressure and was either all HOT or all COLD. I've never seen a shower hookup like this. Since we paid a premium (with a 3 night minimum) I was expecting more. The photos shows a golf cart in the driveway; however, it was not available to us. It had already been rented to someone else. I think I should have been offered to rent the golf cart before renting it out to the public.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns today. I immediately went to the house today as soon as I received your comments. Added 3 more mirrors. The toilet, water pressure and temperature functioned properly when I tested it. I regret it not during your stay. I saw the caulk needed replaced on the tub which did immediately. While on today's visit there were 3 rolls of tissue I will discuss that with the housekeeper to ensure it is well stocked for each visit. With just one golf cart and several rentals it does get snatched up rather quickly. The two golf cart rental company number I gave you usually have carts available. Again I apologize if they were sold out. I regret you had such a disappointing stay as we want your visit to be enjoyable. We will continue to take such reviews to heart and make corrections and improvements.

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.
