Fabulous house, amazing host

  • 5 of 5

We all loved this house so much we wish our stay would have been longer. Todd is the nicest guy who made us feel so welcomed and comfortable. Definitely the nicest rental we've experienced. A night's sleep in the sleep number bed alone was worth every penny we paid :)

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed here for one night on a quick trip to Springfield. Toddler was very friendly and was very easy to communicate with. He met is upon arrival and went over everything with us. The house was cozy and welcoming. There were a lot of little touches everywhere. Todd has thought of everything. The beds were sleep number and very comfy. We enjoyed the hot tub. It was so wonderful on a cold night.

The house is so convenient to downtown and a bunch of great restaurants. I recommend trying the Black Sheep if your in the mood for a great burger. There is also a Starbucks right around the corner which was great in the morning.

Todd was very accommodating and we will definitely stay again if in the area.

Amazing home, Amazing host, hope to come back!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Todd's home with my friend Ida just for one night and wish it could have been longer! Todd was so great with communication and made us feel incredibly welcomed and comfortable. He has gone above and beyond with his set up and preparations for guests.

When I read his reviews I saw one of the more recent ones where someone gave him one star and said his place was "dirty". RIDICULOUS. The place is immaculate. He lives in the separated basement which apparently bothered them as well, but as for me I found it helpful that he was close by and easily available if we had any questions/needed anything.

Ida and I loved being able to relax in the hot tub after a long day hiking and especially loved the sleep number beds!

If you are thinking about booking this house, you should!!

Owner's Response: Bryan, thank you so much for your response to this Review. I have hosted over 150 guests since I started this almost three years ago. I have always taken great pride in doing everything possible to make sure people have the best experience possible. I tell guests to call me any time with any questions or concerns. Julianne and her husband never showed me any of the the things they complained about. They had no problem calling late at night after they intentionally clogged the toilet but they didn't call to point out any cleaning concerns, The house was clean and thecleaning is always inspected at least twice. This couple was simply homophobic and had it out for me. Thank you Bryan, hope to see you guys again soon!!!

Initially very cute...but if you turn up the dim lighting, very dirty and owner lives in basement!

  • 1 of 5

Although Todd was VERY easy to work with initially and we were SUPER excited about our stay, we were quickly disappointed when we got to the property and realized the proprietor lived in the basement, with a male roommate and 2 LARGE dogs. I had talked to Todd and made it clear we were trying this new house rental concept because we liked to stay up late watch movies and sleep in late and didn't like the noises of hotels waking us up - we wanted to be all alone, away from people. I mentioned that multiple times. He NEVER said he lived on the property. His description NEVER listed that information. His pictures and description said we had the full house and the yard. I was happy about that as we were bringing our little dog - which he approved. We were not happy to be woken up EARLY in the AM by his roommate on the phone and their loud TV. The place was great in the dimm lighting provided, but if you look in the light...well, my hubby put on gloves and cleaned the toilet and tub b4 we used them...the hairs and other stuff were gross. The dishes needed washed b4 use. The beds were super comfortable, the place was cute, but we decided it was too bad to stay after 1 night and left for a motel. We tried talking to Todd, who refused to give us anything other than a small refund....we were willing to take a loss, it was that bad, and the was not easy, but we NEVER get vacations and we wanted to be able to sleep in during the mornings. I, as a woman, knew I'd never use the Jacuzzi knowing other men could be around as it was a "common" area. I'm also afraid of big dogs as I've been attacked, had I known there were dogs, I never would have purchased this home. Todd swore it was in his advertisement. We all spent 10 minutes while he read it and he couldn't find it it either - but, still, no full refund. So, very disappointed, our one vacation and we had to find another place to stay, spend more money on short notice and move. It's looks super cute...just keep the lights dim!!

Owner's Response: This couple was completely unreasonable. I tell all my guests when I welcome them to never hesitate to call me for anything. The first night of their stay, I believe they intentionally tried to clog my toilet. The truth is they are homophobic and tried everything to leave once they assumed I was gay. If there was anything not correct they should have called me, but they had ZERO evidendence to show me. I offered to clean anything thing the next day but they had nothing to show me. I pride myself on thorough cleaning. I and my partner always double inspect each other. Look at my ratings,,,I take extreme measures to make sure my houses are spotless. They said I did not disclose that I live in the basement apartment, that is a complete lie. The apartment has a separate exit and it has always been disclosed on my web pages. The TV can barely be heard even turn up loud, the TV volume did not come on till after 11Am the next day. My roomate uses Bluetooth head sets so that was a lie. I came home for lunch the second day of their stay and they had the airconfition running. It was barely above freezing outside that day. They were clearly homophobic and doing anything to get a refund. I gave them $200 if they would cancel the reservation . They took the money but did not cancel their reservation so they totally stole that from me. Then she disputed the credit card charge and that money is still pending but they took it from my account. I should definitely win the dispute but I have already been screwed financially by these homophobic thieves!!!!! Never invite this couple to your place.
