Amazing view, too much personal interaction with landlord
Property in itself is beautiful. Stay is beautiful. Kayaking was amazing. Although we had several things to complain about during our stay. Very first, the house was not ready when we arrived, property manager apologized for the date mix up. The house was not as clean as we have experienced in the past and we encountered pet hairs in the living room. The half bath was so untidy that we were not able to use it. I can say that it was filthy. The basement is full of dust and dirt so we had to make sure that the kids don't go in the basement. The ping pong table is not usable and is very old. The bedroom in the basement is too small with low ceiling and was not clean with spider web all over the place. The owner use the pier two times a day (3-4 adults) for a swim that lasts for an hour or so and that was not expected or mentioned anywhere in the details. It was not a choice for us but to live with it. So the personal interaction with owner was too much for us and we haven't experienced anything as such for any of our previous stays at other places. I would not recommend this place to any family out there who wants some privacy and little to no interaction with the owner. If you are comfortable with it then no problem the place is great for a nice view of the pond and sunset. Each and everything should be mentioned accurately in the details of a place when people want to rent it out. House not being ready when folks start reaching is a huge NO NO for us. All the best for other families who decide to spend few days here and hope you have a different experience in a positive way.
First of all, please accept our sincerest apologies for the date mix up. This is completely on us, and we hustled to clean it as best we could so that you would be comfortable. We are very, very sorry that this happened. It was a first in six years of renting out this house.
That being said, we would like to address the rest of your review. In our listing, we make it very clear that the dock is shared. There are three houses on the property, including one where the owner spends weekends. It seems that you did not read that detail in the description. None of our other renters have had issues with us interacting with them, so this seems unique to you. People who don't want this read the listing and stay elsewhere.
Regarding the ping pong table: we use it weekly in the winter, as do our renters in the warmer months. It is two years old, so not brand new, but definitely not old or "unusable."
Regarding the height of the bedroom ceiling in the basement: This is actually our most popular room, as it affords a door and window directly onto the water. Our daughter spent her wedding week in this room just this past weekend for a romantic, quiet setting on her special day. It's true that we did not detail the exact height of the ceiling in our listing and that it lacks the vaulted ceilings of the living room, but let's remember that it is, as discussed, a basement.
Again, we are sorry for your negative experience. We are very, very sorry about the date mix-up and rushed cleaning. We did feel compelled to respond to some of your comments. Be well.
Awesome view - Comfy house
Olga and her husband are very nice people and the house is awesome. The kids (and dogs) loved the dock and yard. The stars are amazing at night and the sunset over the lake is spectacular. Would be happy to stay here again.
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect for our family get together over Memorial Day weekend. Loved looking out over the water and being so close to the ocean (1.3 miles). Olga and Gabriel were great hosts.
"Sittin on the dock of the bay/pond..."
Great view of water, close to town, very clean, comfortable house. Plenty of room for our family.
Great family house with an incrediable view
We had a large family group and our dogs here and everyone (including the pups) were thrilled with the house and property. It had plenty of beds and futons and a great A framed living area. House was air conditioned for the hot nights and the full wall of windows allowed a beautiful view of the pond when it rained. Already planning on coming back next year. Owners were prompt to respond to any our questions which made the process pleasant and painless. Would highly recommend this property.
Thanks so much, Annmarie! Hope you can come next summer!
Great location, lovely views, spacious well equipped home. Even though there were neighbors on either side, you wouldn't have known it. Nice yard for outside games.
Our family enjoyed our time there! We also had great weather!! Owners are very easy to work with!
The house is located right on the salty river, with beautiful views from the living room and master bedroom. Located about a mile from the ocean beach (Menahaunt).We can provide 2 tandem kayaks if you wish.
