Cigarette smoke...bad!

  • 1 of 5

I knew this wasn't going to be a good experience the second I opened the front door and all the windows in the house were open. The cigarette smoke smell was horrible! Everything down to the sheets, pillows, and carpet smelled like smoke. Then there is the cat urine... We had to buy new sheets and pillow cases just to make it bearable to sleep there. I believe the owner was not upfront and honest about the cigarette smell and obviously tried to hide it upon arrival. I agree with others that this could be a very nice place to stay. Maybe if you enjoy cigarette smoke and cat urine, then this place is for you!

Could be really nice.... but

  • 1 of 5

This could be a beautiful property however it reeks of cigarette smoke and cat urine. I had to wash the sheets, comforters and towels every day as they just absorbed the horrible odors. It was freezing outside yet we had to sleep with the slider open in the master in order to breath. I would highly recommend that the owners stop smoking in their home if they want to continue to rent it as a vacation property and replace all of the carpet to get rid of the urine smell. Between the cigarette smoke and the urine odors someone with a respiratory issue could have a major medical episode. It is too bad because it has a fantastic layout and location and could be a great place but is completely destroyed with odor.

Cat Urine

  • 1 of 5

This place completely reeked of cat urine. The smell was so strong that it made my eyes water. I came here for a softball tournament and had no choice but to under the misery of such a ridiculous situation. My brother and my families both stayed there and had to stay away as much as possible to be able to breath. The place had a wonderful location and decor but unless the order problem has been taken care of I would avoid this place.

Far Western Qualifier Girls Volleyball Team

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our volleyball team traveling to play in the Far Western Qualifier at the Reno Convention Center. It was convenient to shopping, malls, the convention center and downtown Reno. The view from the house is very peaceful and the path around the Marina was a nice run! Did not get the chance to enjoy the sailboat but it is located directly in front of the house for those there in the summer! The owner made it convenient for us to arrive and depart and we would definitely look at this location again for a vacation rental.
