Overpriced For What You Actually Get

  • 2 of 5

We had a group of 15 people heading to Michigan for Memorial Day weekend. This property seemed promising being on 4 acres of land and the lake. We did have a good time. However, I wouldn't recommend it at this price point and would be cautious of additional fees.

The cleaning fee was not included in the VRBO rental process, but it was said it would be due later and showed a minimum amount. When the time came to get the property rental details (address, check-in information, etc) nothing was listed on the VRBO site. I called the property manager and he explained that I was supposed to receive a text but hadn't. When I did get the text, it was very long and explained that the the cleaning fee would be much more money than the minimum earlier stated. On top of that, they wanted to me to, upon check-in provide a photo of my ID and my credit card, front and back. The reason I go through sites 3rd party sites like VRBO is so that someone I don't know does not get direct access to my personal information. We ultimately paid cash, and more than I'd have liked given the property was not as clean or prepared as I would have wanted it to be for the price.

Included, from the VRBO description, was a mini-lodge on the property. Upon arriving we were told this was not cleaned out and to have done so would have been an additional cost (on top of what we just paid in cash). When we looked at it, there was patio furniture scattered everywhere and did not look like the photos on VRBO. Within the main house, in the downstairs recreation room was a refrigerator that we could not use because there was mold inside it, including a bag of rotten meat.

The first night, when I sat on my bed, (sat not jumped) the mattress fell through the frame. When I texted the manager I was told this bed had been broken in the past. I spent the weekend on a mattress on the floor. Nobody was able to figure out how to get the steam room to work.

This property has potential and there is lots of space. However, the management transparency was not great. I have stayed at much nicer properties for much lower costs (all of which were included upfront when I booked through VRBO).

Owner's Response: We dont want any poor reviews and cannot keep everyone happy. We have a group text check in to keep any concerns in front of at least 3 sets of eyes, to quickly remedy any concerns like these notes after the stay. This way a simple text right st your fingertips can quickly get our team to dispatch a cleaner. Which by the way is the check in person. This way any cleaning issues are typically resolved on the spot and the cleaning person responsible for cleaning is there first hand to take care of them then. This way all issues can be resolved rather than wait and complain after we have 2 steps to resolve issues immediately. I sure wish these steps had been used by this customer. Simply because we like happy customers and owners and cleaners. We also demand information upon arrival it's the law. Just like a hotel requirement we are allowing you to stay in a house a owner owns. Your information is private and the owner wants to protect his house. Seems like a fair trade off and it's a investment of a few minutes to secure the owners property. I hope we can improve on our cleaning and the message was sent to the owner and cleaner. Thanks for the feedback please use the text upon arrival to resolve issues immediately. We have 75 other properties with other cleaners and owners please visit those and we will give you $100 off for your inconvenience. We also have a limousine service that we will give you $100 off if you can use that in the future.

Absolutely beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

Just beautiful and everything was what it said it was. We were impressed

with the cleanliness and utmost sincerity of the manager and how helpful he was. The town is so fun, lots of shopping in Grand Haven and so close. So many choices to eat and a great bakery in Spring Lake, not to mention the musical fountain too. Our kids loved it. We will surely return and bring more family. Its a must to see and stay at. We feel blessed to have found our destination vacation home.

Cabin was fine. Management company was a nightmare

  • 1 of 5

The “Hidden” pines cabin was as expected and was more or less as described.

I could go on and on about the nuances of my experience (more so than I do below), but the bottom line is: STAY AWAY from all rentals managed by this particular management company! They were an absolute nightmare to deal with. They required me to provide a significant amount of cash upon arrival (in addition to the significant security deposit hold on my credit card) for a 3 day weekend rental. I thought this seemed excessive, but I am a busy guy and was in the middle of planning my wedding, so I did what was easy at the time. I never should have handed over the cash.

I expected to receive the money back upon checkout (2 days after check-in) but was shocked to find out they would only return my cash in the form of a check via snail mail.

After returning from my wedding and honeymoon (I had rented the cabin as a bachelor party) I was once more shocked to have not received my money back.

Based on how long it took to FINALLY get my money back, I can only assume the management company is failing and has significant liquidity issues, or some other detail I am not privvy to.

Only after bombarding 3 employees with countless emails, text messages, phone calls, phone calls from other people’s phones (because they were ignoring my calls), and ultimately threatening involvement of my attorney – this all took several weeks, and occurred months after my money should have been returned – only then did I finally receive my money in full.

Again, the cabin was as expected. After all of the above it was laughable that the management company tried to incentivize me to rent with them again. LAUGHABLE. The complete lack of professionalism, and the haunting sense I was being scammed, was scary and an incredible waste of time.

Note they gave no valid excuse for the above behavior. My friends and I left the cabin in better, cleaner shape than when we arrived. Their excuse for the several months of delay was essentially that they had no documentation of the money. I found this unbelievable. WHY is that my problem if they don’t know how to run their business effectively?

****full disclosure – I have never, ever bothered to write an online review until this experience****

Owner's Response: We only take cash deposits for these types of rentals and most places do not allow bachelor parties we will allow them. We did refund this money but needed to make sure the damages although they were minor were waived by the owner. Unfortunately he was in surgery for his eyes and is now blind so the time it took on this delay was due to circumstances out of control and needed to get the cash deposit back from him and he was not comfortable with the refund until he cold inspect his property. I am very sorry for the delay and we provided a great place for a fun event however cannot control the refund of money that was held due to things that made it take a little longer. Credit card is the way we take deposits unless you have a event such as a bachelor party. So bring your rentals for these events as we welcome your events and you will not get scammed, you will get your money back.
