We had a great stay at the house as we had 12 guests for a bachelor party and the house was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Everyone that joined us for the weekend told me how much they enjoyed themselves and how perfect the house was for this occasion. Everything from the large back deck to the two bars,the movie theatre and the incredible sound system throughout the entire house, we enjoyed everything. Sean was very welcoming when I arrived and walked me through the property and explained everything in the house top to bottom. It is also a short cab ride away from downtown Portsmouth in which we took advantage of and had a lot of fun. I highly recommend renting this house if you are having anything from a large gathering to a small family vacation. You won't be disappointed.

Great place to host a party!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house to host a party at. There was plenty of space inside and out for having fun and sleeping. The kitchen and shower were nicely updated. There were two nice bar rooms, an awesome movie theater and a great sound system where you could play different music in every room. The deck was huge. The yard was large enough to accommodate outdoor games.

As for our host, Sean was very friendly, flexible and he kindly opened up his entire home to us. He let us set our own check in/out times, which was a huge plus. My first impression was that the pictures did not do this place justice!

Great for Large Parties

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of ten people for a bachelor party and this place was perfect! The property has a sizable deck and yard, which was great for playing games during the day. Also, the outdoor surround sound was awesome! The house is pretty secluded, but still only about 25 minutes from dowtown Portsmouth.

Sean was a fantastic host. He was at the house to show us arround and was very accessible to answer any questions that we had. The basement was not entirely finished from renovation when we showed up so he told us that he would refund some of our money. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here.

Great Bachelorette Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing bachelorette party here for the weekend. Sean is personable, helpful and professional. He adjusted the check-in time to work for my group, took the time to show us the property, and even answered the phone at 1am when we had a question about the hot tub. We had 14 ladies there for a weekend and everyone was able to sleep comfortably and had space to get ready (awesome shower upstairs!!). The deck is spectacular with a nice big hot tub and cool view. The room with the bar is a great feature and the basement had plenty of room to play drinking games. If you stay here you won't have to worry about anything, as Sean takes care of sheets, towels and bedding. You'll also be a short 20 mins from Portsmouth, which is a really fun area to go out at night. Great home and home owner...I would definitely recommend staying here!

Good fit for college crowd only

  • 2 of 5

The house smelled of trash when we arrived, especially the kitchen. The basement is pretty moldy smelling with exposed insulation. The back patio is nice but there are fumes from the septic system which make it hard to enjoy. the fumes were so bad my cookout guests left after an hour. The lawn was not mowed. These things aren't dealbreakers if your a college student and not looking fir a nice place but for the price you could find much nicer places.

Owner's Response: While it is true the lawn was a couple days overdue on a mow (mowed last Saturday), the other items listed here are gross exaggerations. The entire home was professionally cleaned two days prior to the guests arriving (I can provide receipt). The "trash smell in the kitchen" may simply have been us taking out the trash prior to them coming (they arrived 1.5 hours earlier than expected). I'm sure any smell disappeared within 15 minutes (if it was there at all). As for the other two complaints - they are either baseless or ridiculous. "Exposed insulation" only applies to the ceiling in th basement--as it's the only room in the entire home which is yet unfinished. It's an unfinished basement so exposed insulation is fairly standard. As for the "septic smell" in the yard - I can't even fathom what is being referred to here. I have been renting my home for over 12 months and not once has anyone EVER raised such a complaint, nor have I ever smelled any such smell on the property. My other reviews should speak for themselves. As this is the first poor review my home has ever received, I am frankly a bit taken aback. But if a few minor inconveniences cause a 2 star review from this reviewer, so be it.
