Fabulous getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect home base for a nearby family wedding. It is roomy for a large group, comfortable and beautiful. I highly recommend it!

The home was clean and spacious with a surprising mountain feel.

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great fit for our large family. The lake was extremely crowded on Labor Day weekend, but you would've never known it in the quiet cove. The beach area was great for the kids, and the fishing wasn't bad either. We will definitely be back to enjoy this vacation rental!

Retreat to Quiet Lake Wateree

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our three families totaling 10 people...4 children under 8 years old. Plenty of space. Having that little beach, instead of deep water was super for the children. We all enjoyed the lake and the home. The owners were great to work with. Also we could bring our elderly dog which was a comfort. The adults spent hours on the beautiful porch enjoying the view through the trees. We did go to one area resturaunt, something Grill and Ale, and I WOULD NOT recommend it....we got up and left!

Extremely Disappointed and Grossed Out!

  • 1 of 5

We rented this property due to a graduation in the area. Unfortunately this was one of the WORST experiences we've ever had with a VRBO and it will most likely be our last! We were in the property for a few hours when we discovered that there was a cat IN the house. No warning given by the owners and two of the guests are allergic to cats. We should have guessed based on the water bowls and food dishes located in & around the house. When we told the owner she just said let the cat out. SERIOUSLY? How are we responsible for that and how were we supposed to get the cat to come out from under the bed? When the cat got hungry we were able to lead it outside with a food bowl. When it came time to use the bathrooms we discovered that they were FILTHY! Shower had dirt and hair caked in the bottom. The sinks had hair in them like someone had trimmed a beard before leaving that morning and the toilets were disgusting! After contacting the owner we were told that they had watered a plant in the shower and that is why there was dirt in the shower. No way that caused there to be dirt caked to the bottom and what about all of the hairs? NASTY NASTY NASTY!! The floors had not been swept throughout the house as there was hair and dust on the floors. There were cobwebs everywhere including hanging directly over our heads when laying in bed! Needless to say, I think it is absolutely ridiculous that we paid the amount of money that we did for three nights and we were forced to scrub the sinks, shower and toilets in order to use them! The owner really could not have cared less about the fact that they did NOT disclose that there would be a cat wandering around inside the house and that it would be whining at the doors morning and night and that we would need to place food and water outside in order to get it to be quiet! When asked when they would be there to clean the bathrooms so that we could use they did not respond! That's when we went ahead and cleaned ourselves. Again, this was THE MOST DISGUSTING experience we've ever had with a VRBO or anywhere for that matter! NASTY NASTY NASTY!!! I'm quite certain that the owner will not respond to this or offer any type of refund to us. If I could figure out how to post pictures of the dirty sinks and shower I would so that other VRBO guests could see that I am speaking the truth and STAY AWAY FROM THIS NASTY PLACE!!

Owner's Response: I realize that loosing control the cat was a faux pas but there are no small rodents around thanks to her. I offered to come rectify these issues but I was told not to come. I asked for pictures of these nasty conditions &they sent me a picture text of a tissue with dirt on it.This house is in a rural woodsy setting. Not everything can be completed controlled. I usually spend at least 2 days cleaning. The overwhelming majority of my guest have been very complimentary. I have a guest book that will substantiate this claim. Everyone has a different standard and is entitled to an opinion. I would let the house guest majority speak concerning this issue. I did refund their deposits. Sorry they are so unhappy. The fact remains that the house was occupied the full term of the reservation.

Great vacation location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great time during our time here. Quiet and relaxing setting, nice little beach area, and the homeowner and neighbors could not have been any friendlier. Would recommend this spot and I look forward to coming here again next year.
