About Martin Halla

We are striving to provide the best experience to our guests through providing clean, upgraded house and offering more and more amenities. The guests' satisfaction is very important to us. We want our guests to feel like home.

Martin Halla purchased this house in 2009

Why Martin Halla chose Poconos

Poconos is an excellent area that provides all year round activities Our location is in safe gated private community on top of the Pocono Plateau and only 15 minutes from the Hickory State Park that offers many trails to hikers. Famous Hawk Falls are within 10 minute short drive.. We are also very close to the Lehigh River which offers damn release white water rafting. Delaware river canoeing is only 25 minutes away

What makes this house unique

I really enjoy the position of the house in the mature forest. You feel truly connected to the nature through the flora and wild life that is very common in the forest (Deer, turkeys, squirrels ). We are only short 3 minute walking distance from the indian lake which provides great 2 mile loop for joggers or walkers. At the winter I enjoy the wood burning stove that provides cozy heat . With a g lass of wine at our new kitchen and high speed Internet, I cannot ask for more. I also enjoy the gated community's safety. One does not have to worry about any by-passers as only residents authorized visitors are allowed to the community.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time here. The hot tub was so fun! At night we went out and the moon was really bright and the sky was so clear.The kitchen was fully equipped and everything looked new and clean. I could live in this house and be happy- it was that perfect! House was so private which was nice.

Also, we heard lots of birds singing from the deck. We hope to come back again soon!

Owner's Response: Rafal, we are glad you had a great time ! The house is surrounded by vacant wooded lots offering a complete privacy and true connection to the nature. Deer pass on daily basis and it is not uncommon to see wild turkeys as well. This summer, we are adding a patio and outdoor fireplace to enjoy more outdoor living and Poconos beautiful evenings.

Terrible ownership and representation of property. Awful experience

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at the property at check in time which we were told was 4 PM. The code that was provided to us did not work so we texted the owner and decided to go around and check out our vacation home while we waited for some kind of response. Once we were in the back yard we saw the broken and unkept mess, the broken swing, green water in the hot tub, live electrical wires, etc. My wife is pregnant and so is her cousin that came with us plus we have a 3 year old that was really looking forward to using all the amenities that were advertised and the conditions of the home were far from safe. We decided to look past the little things and focused on getting in the house as we saw pools and playgrounds in the community. Once we were able to get inside a half hour later, which the owner only called then, we saw the mess inside. The couch that looks like it fell off a trash truck, all the water damage throughout the house, the beds that were broken and made so much noise and are even more uncomfortable then the floor but yet again we said "lets make the best of it" and carried on. I, without telling anyone, texted the owner and asked if i could have access to the chemicals for the hot tub to get rid of the green water to which he replied that the water gets changed every time someone new comes to the house. It's a lie, there was scum on the walls of the hot tub and the water looked green. i own a pool and know what the water should smell and look like. After we couldn't sleep all night and my pregnant wife cried due to that fact we decided to get out of the house and start fresh, we went to the pool and a short time later returned for lunch/dinner. We were sitting in the back yard eating when we heard rushing water and smelled the most horrid smell and quickly realized that it was sewer all over the back yard. i tried to call the owner several times and after all unsuccessful attempts we called a hotel as we could not take anymore. This was supposed to be a beautiful vacation home in the Poconos and instead it was a nightmare. We were willing to look past a lot of things and tried to make the best of it but once the sewer started flowing and our 3 year old ran through it we were done.

Not the right fit for us

  • 2 of 5

The house is actually pretty good, but it just wasn't the right fit for my group. Pros: kitchen is nice, hot tub is fantastic, nice fire pit in the back yard. Cons: 1 bathroom is tough when you have a full 10 people in the house - which, we knew about beforehand, so not the homeowners fault. We thought we could do it and we did, would just rather not try again in the future. More cons below:

Martin was responsive when we needed. However, we had a couple of issues with the house. We were not registered at the gate when we arrived and the gate lady wasn't exactly pleasant. We called Martin and he figured it out right away. There was also an issue with the septic tank, which again Martin was responsive and sent a truck to empty it right away, but it was unpleasant when we couldn't use the toilet. Also some water in the backyard.

I think for a smaller group, this house would be great. Martin is responsive and got things working for us when we needed.

Hot tub outback..nice "casita"

  • 4 of 5

Definitely what I had planned for the family...smores, hot tub, sauna, firepit, and no issues. Got to check out 940 Golf not far from the property and it was a cool time for the minimum. The owner also called to make sure everything was good which was very onpoint..just in case i had a earful for him..lol Thanks Martin, we will return.
