Thoroughly Enjoyed our Stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was comfortable and a lot like home. We felt very relaxed there, and had everything we needed. We also enjoyed swimming in the natural pool, which was a bonus. Terry and Meg were very welcoming, kind and accommodating. We had an A+ stay there!

Meg and her husband were very warm and welcoming. They gave us our space, yet were also willing to chat and show us around their lovely property and floral gardens! They were also responsive and kind at all times. I would highly recommend!!!

Just the right space for our 3 generations. Hosts were generous and friendly. Wonderful vistas.

  • 4 of 5

Meg and Terry have a wonderful spot to share. Very comfortable. Easy to find. Cut flowers from the farm were a great touch. We were lucky to be there for antiques sale. Our busy schedule kept us from enjoying the pool, grilling and outdoor patio.

Only complaint was the shag rug which harbored sticker burrs that were hard on bare feet. We understand that there is a plan to replace it.

Stay Away Period - US Army (Ret) - Disabled Vet

  • 1 of 5

You will be able to see all of details at the BBB since the following is a summary of why these people should not be in business.

1) This is not a house as the ad states. It is a TRAILER!

2) A nasty thorn exists there and it gets into shoes, carpet, etc. After 2 days of pets and a miserable time trying to remove them from family and pets alike, we notified the owner we couldn't stay.

3) Rusty piece of metal in one closet.

4) Rusty nails sticking out from shelves.

5) Rusty nails sticking out from picture frame.

6) Did not know internet password and we had to go get it from them and then they were not sure it was correct. When we did get on line, signal is weak since it is sent from the main house and not installed in the trailer.

7) 3rd day there, the water was shut off and they didn't give us any notice. You'll see in their review of us, they give us a "1" for communication. Yeah right.

8) They have a side business and parking can be a real pain in the backside. That's what they mean in their ad when they say something about if you don't want to be around people, this isn't the place for you. They also have other tenants you might run into so definitely not private.

9) Place not only contained the thorns in the carpet, but it was dusty/dirty. This is because of the trailers windows. They do not seal well enough because the wind blows very hard and blows the dirt from the fields in.

10) Light in oven and above oven did not work and the oven needed cleaning. Started smoking the first time we used it.

11) Work trucks working across one of their fields were constantly driving by and working at the site. This was noisy and not what you expect from a vacation rental.

12) When we notified this woman that we could not stay because of the thorns, etc., she cancelled the payments. However, neither her nor VRBO refunded anything and we only stayed 1/3 of the time. She cites her cancellation policy as a refund policy which is crap because if you show up, you can't cancel 30-60 days out.

Yet she can claim a house in the ad and provide a dirty unsafe trailer / land. That's why you will be able to see the details and dates as well as PICTURES if they will let me upload them.

If not, I am going to pursue this and will provide them on the web so you'll be able to see them in a search that returns the Red Tetanus Farm.

Have you seen Real Simple home magazine?

  • 5 of 5

This is a real life home with the character of relaxed simplicity set on a real working florist nursery. It works! The owners are great people who care about your comfort.

Very quiet and peaceful property

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Red daisy. The hosts were very personable and helpful with things to do while in the Denver area.

The beds are very comfortable and the house is very clean and spacious. Having two full baths is a plus. Very close to the Airport and central to the places we wanted to visit.

We would recommend this place for sure. We didn't get to make use of the pond but it is a wonderful place to relax with the waterfall and sitting area in close proximity of the house.
