About Catharina

Hi my name is Catharina. I am a 49 year old mother of 4 and happily married for 25 years. I started vacation renting about 9 years ago. I love the Hospitality field and especially enjoy meeting guests from all around the world.

Catharina purchased this house in 2011

Why Catharina chose Westport

This property is perfect for families. The layout allows for various sleeping arrangements. This is ideal for multi-generations such as parents with small children that prefer to have their children close while still having privacy could sleep in connecting rooms or the many cousins who want to stay in a large bedroom together or the nightowls who can hangout at the pub and watch movies on the 108sq ft screen all night without disdurbing grandma and grandpa.

Take caution before renting, Home is run down, dangerous and filthy. Photos on site not accurate!!

  • 1 of 5

Extreme disappointment. Do not rent and if you have cancel! Rental home add is misleading. Property is run down, dirty and also dangerous.

The issues which we have encountered and found are literally countless. Entering the property it was apparent that the home had not been properly cleaned in months. The garage had fall leaves piled up in corners. Dust was heavy on all wood work, all the light fixtures had dead bugs in them with heavy dust built up in them as well. The floors were disgusting. Even after the cleaning crew came back in (while we were there), our children’s feet would become stained with dirt from just walking around. We had to rewash all the silverware as there was hair and food in the containers. The bedding was filthy, some of which had hair and urine stains, this all required cleaning at our time and cost. We also had to wash every rug in the house due to the dirt and grime. The entire interior needs repainted, basement has a number of issues. Ceiling tiles missing or out of place, plug covers missing or broken (which is a hazard for little ones), cabinet door ripped off and just piled up in the corners.The bathroom shower is not usable, the floor in the shower is soft. Fish tank appears to not have been cleaned in months. Stove stopped working and the built in oven almost falls out of the cabinet. jacuzzi tub faucet and shower head are not connected correctly and when used pour water into the basement thru the floor. Just so happens that the water is dispensed next to the two fuse panels and the hot water tank.

The exterior of the home has mildew and moss everywhere needs power wash.The deck is in the same condition, wood railing has paint chipping off all over and the post top caps are falling off & has trim missing. Grill had grease from overflowing drip pan onto concrete. Son slipped and fell. Even more disturbing was the 2nd grill on the deck. There was a clear grease fire in the propane storage area, all of the burnt items were still present and the grill is still hooked up to the main gas line. Other issues with the exterior include, missing or broken screens, film covered windows, window sills with heavily caked dirt & grime, moss covered front porch steps, cracked and loose front porch steps. The fence gates doesn’t always work. The dock and walk way need power washed & resealed.

Home owners were unreceptive to our concerns or attempts to remedy.

Awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was fantastic! We had a house full and there was plenty of room for more. There were 14 of us, all had beds, and there was room to spare. The downstairs parlor was a great place for everyone to gather and the pool was great! The owners even left a welcome basket filled with wine, cheese, and crackers. I have never experienced that and it was a great added touch! We are going to definitely try to stay here again!

It was lovely. Our whole group was very happy.

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious. Clean. Few minor maintenance items but nothing to detract from our enjoyment of the home. Great kitchen, game room and space for everyone to spread out when needed. Thank for the great weekend!

Great location, easy booking process, house needs a good cleaning.

  • 3 of 5

Layout & location of house was great. Owner was easy to communicate with. Plenty of room for large family gathering. House wasn't very clean, sliding door to deck didn't work well/very difficult to open & close. One of the decorative wood support beams of deck was completely rotted out. Although we enjoyed our stay, this place could certainly have better maintenance for a waterfront rental property.

Great time at a beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, large property. Owner available for questions which was very helpful. Many available sleeping options for a large group. Over all the property was very nice. There are some items that need repair which I informed the owner about. We all had a great time at this property and I would recommend it to large groups.
