About Alex Verdi

My name is Alex Verdi and I have two rental properties here in the Poconos. I built And designed these houses in mind for entertaining family groups To get together and enjoy each other's company In a very private, and quiet setting.

My family, wife Lisa and four children are avid travelers and we come here to unwind and just to enjoy each other's company. In the summer we enjoy the beach and the lake for swimming and fishing And in the winter we enjoy skiing ,snowboarding and snow tubing.

Most of all we enjoy the peace and quiet that these houses provide!

Also view my Key west Livin' Yacht ID # 3727837 to have an incredible unique Key West Vacation experience.

What makes this chalet unique

The property is unique because the privacy the property provides owning two houses directly next to each other and owning the open wooded lots on both sides of the houses. Also the ability for larger family groups to rent both properties for larger family reunions.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

This an ideal spot for a weekend getaway with a bunch of friends. In my case the groomsmen of my wedding stayed here for the weekend and loved it. Plenty of rooms, high ceilings, enough bathes for 8 people comfortably. I def recommend this house. Alex was very helpfull with and gave specific instructions/checkout checklist.

Spacious, comfortable and nice location!!

  • 4 of 5

We were there (sixteen of us) for this labor day weekend and had so much fun!! Very comfortable for large groups, enough beds to go around. Wi-Fi was super fast even when many of us were using it same time. 3 full baths really helped us get ready in the morning. Very close to the lake, nice neighborhood for morning and evening walks. Owner was very prompt with communication, very easy to check-in and check out. Clear directions on how to get started (lock box, trash, water heater, well pump, etc.) and checkout list.

Few minor problems we had: some strange smell in basement bedroom - not strong but annoying enough, fan light in 2nd floor guest bed room didn't work.

All in all - I strongly recommend this place for a fun getaway in Poconos.

Acceptable, but disappointing condition

  • 3 of 5

Somewhat run-down with some unpleasant issues. No one thing would be that bad on its own but in totality they amounted to a poor experience.

Issues:

- The entire first floor (& to a lesser degree the entire house) was musty & dusty. It had an odor the whole time. Staying in the ground floor bedroom bothered my allergies. The entire ground floor carpeting should probably be replaced with flooring.

- A lot of furniture was in poor condition. Some dining chairs were sticky. Some beds had ugly-looking dark stains. 3 outdoor chairs had the seats ripped out. The outdoor umbrella had multiple broken arms. The paint on the porch was coming loose in chunks - whoever painted it didn't prep the wood.

- Mildew on one of the shower curtains.

- The owner required us to bring our own sheets & towels, incl. hand towels, or pay an extra linen fee (outside of VRBO). This kind of hidden fee should be disclosed before booking.

- The house is part of a property association. The owner provided 8 wristbands that I assume would allow access to community resources/recreation, but no explanation was provided for what they offered. I asked if we had access to the nearby beach but got no response.

- Wi-Fi didn't work all weekend. I contacted the owner who said he'd call the cable company, but nothing came of it.

- The listing advertised A/C but it was a single portable unit on the 2nd floor that couldn't really cool the entire house. The owner suggested opening the 3rd floor sliding door for cooling, but it didn't have a screen so it wasn't realistic to leave it open without letting in a lot of bugs.

- The security deposit was either exorbitantly high, or you had to pay an nonrefundable insurance fee. Another hidden fee.

The good:

- Lots of space: many bedrooms with lots of beds. One heads-up though: the 3rd floor loft doesn't have a door, so anyone staying there won't have as much privacy, or isolation from living room noise.

- Good location - prime Poconos near lots of good stuff.

- Lots of table settings and kitchenware to facilitate cooking for a big group.

- Quiet neighborhood

- Convenient grocery store nearby

Other notes:

- The beds were firm. Not my thing, but I know some people like that.

- No yard or outdoor space other than the porch.

- Cell service is decent.

Overall, we had a good time in the Poconos, but I'm not planning on renting this house again. We were looking for a comfortable home base for some nearby activities and this house came up short.

Owner's Response: This was a young group of kids renting the house and was upset because I drilled them after finding out they were younger so I think this is a revenge review please take it with grain of salt it is not indicative of the rental at all obviously if you read all the other reviews that would be proof enough. The house is very clean , spacious and very comfortable I have had seven rentals after this group and everyone was thrilled with the property !!

Great place for a large group!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. Everything was fairly clean and comfortable. The only suggestion we had would be mirrors on the walls in the bedrooms but otherwise everything was great! I would recommend this house and stay here again! Thank you Alex!

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this property for my boyfriends birthday with 13 other people - this house was perfect. I was skeptical about the size of the house due to the amount of people we had coming, but it was more spacious than I imagined. The house was extremely clean and had everything that was listed. The house had a great open floor plan so we were able to really enjoy each others company - and the pool table was a major plus!! The location was also perfect - supermarket and beer distributor were very close and big boulder was less than 15 minutes away.

Most importantly, Alex was extremely accommodating - he was responsive from the start of the process to the end of our trip. I highly recommend this house, and will definitely be back!! :)

Great Escape

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time! We celebrated Friendsgiving weekend in the Poconos. Four families...16 people. Very relaxing. Very nice house. The owner, Alex, was very nice and a pleasure to work with. His restaurant recommendations were great, too. Would definitely rent again!
