Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the hospitality! We slept soundly in the master bed and enjoyed being able to fix a homecooked breakfast and lunch. Also enjoyed the fireplace room as it was cozy and warm - just what we needed on a cold night.

There's A lot More Than Walnuts at This House

  • 1 of 5

During our stay at the walnut house we had an unfortunate experience with mice.

Upon entering the house we noted, among its quaint interior, multiple electronic pest repellants plugged into various electric sockets throughout the house. Fortunately, for the first couple of days, we had no encounters with the mice. However, on the night of our second day's stay, a mouse was noted near the kitchen area during the wee hours of the morning. It startled one of our residents, and quickly ran away. We were hoping this would be an isolated event, but it was not. The following afternoon a dead mouse was found in a PRESET mouse trap (placed by the owner) near the side of the couch located in the living room, and adjacent to the wall. The mouse was quickly disposed of, but ~ 4 or 5 more mice were noted randomly running near the kitchen and living area that same day.

After the encounter, we contacted the property owner, Melissa. We told her we felt uncomfortable completing the rest of our stay in the Walnut house, and voiced our concern with the fact she rented the property knowing there was an issue with mice. We asked for compensatory action. Melissa stated she was unaware there was a problem with mice on the property. We, however, found this difficult to believe given the fact there were both PRESET electronic pest repellants and physical mouse traps in the home. In our estimation, if there was no issue with rodents, there would be no need for prophylactic measures. Melissa stated she was unable to assist us aside from coming to the property to set more traps, which we felt was an inadequate compromise. She suggested since we did not feel her compromise was adequate, we needed to contact Home Away for any further compensation.

Due to the snarky attitude we received while speaking with Melissa on the phone, we decided the matter required further action. After wishing her good evening and hanging up we did, in fact, contact Home Away. The Home Away associate responded quickly to the matter and decided remaining in the home was both a health and safety issue (especially since we had young and crawling children present). We were provided hotel accommodations at the near by Quality Inn, which we were thankful for. The accommodations were modest, and our Thanksgiving food was lost because we had no were to store our food. We also lost the ability to gather as family for the remainder of the week. Melissa was unwilling to accommodate or provide any refund for the

Owner's Response: The renter's contacted me to inform me that they had seen several mice in the home. I attempted to assist them by coming to set traps in the home, they states that was not enough. I told them that as a home owner I do take precautions with changing weather to assure that there are not issues including setting trapa and putting out electrical deterrents. The house is located near several food establishments and it is common that mice will come inside from the cold. The renter's threatened to send me official documents for which I asked them to contact home away. Since they were unwilling for me to come set traps for them I didn't feel that there was much I could do. Having lots of people and food in the home will attract mice and other creatures. I contacted home away myself to inform them of my attempt to assist the renters and their refusal. It being a holiday weekend I was unable to get anyone to go to the house until Monday which is after they checked out. I apologized for their inconvenience and asked several times if there was anything I could do. They Could not give a clear answer to the questions. The renter's left the house in great condition and even set sticky traps out. They left Saturday and when I arrived at the house on Monday evening I found no mice in any of the traps they had set. The exterminator was there on Monday and promptly set bait boxes outside to keep the mice from coming inside. I am sorry that this renter had an unfortunate time, however I was more than willing to assist them to the best of my ability. Had they contacted me when they saw the first mouse the day before I probably could have had someone out right away, but waiting until 6pm on a Friday wanting me to come capture all the mice right then was unacceptable. I take pride in making sure my home is clean and cared for.

Cute and charming home

  • 4 of 5

The home is very cute and has a lot of room for a large # of guest. We had 8 guests total and it was very comfortable. One issue though is there isn't a working bathtub this was a bit of a problem with small children. Everything else was perfect.

The only downside was that there seemed to be an ant infestation in the home.

This was the perfect place for us! Upon entering the home my grown children were thrilled and the excitement grew as they walked through each room! My young grandson was equally bowled over. I cannot say a negative thing as our stay was absolutely perfect!

I immediately texted the owner, Melissa, to convey everyone's pleasure. They truly felt it was a slice of heaven! Where do I begin?

Upon seeing the loft, all my children 'claimed' it for their own. They eventually 'threw dice' for the winner.

Location is A-one! It is close to KC, but feels very small town and relaxing. Yet, a few blocks in one direction was a small-town restaurant; a couple blocks north was train tracks with many engines and cars that my grandson loved walking around and eyeing; not far in another direction was every store needed.

One of the top perks was the jetted tub. We took part in a fundraiser and needless to say after running the 5K, it was a welcoming relief for sore joints and aching muscles.

We hope to make this our annual trip! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

I was completely satisfied with my stay at the Walnut house. The home itself was beautiful, nicely decorated and very clean. There were more than enough towels and linen as well and also board games and movies if needed. Location wise was great the surrounding area is very quiet and downtown KC is about a 25min drive.. Only complaints I left for Melissa was I initially had a difficult checking in to the property I guess there was an email that she attempted to send me twice that I never got. So when I got in pretty late and could not access the property it took me about twenty minutes to get a hold of her to get the access code. Also the tv in the front had a problem with the volume, don't know what that was about. Other than that its a great place to stay if I ever come back to KC I will be staying again.

Owner's Response: Before your stay I send via vrbo a welcome packet to every renter with all the details of the house. It includes how to access the property and explains about the house. Check-in is as early as 4 pm. Should you not receive the email a few days before your stay just message me and I will make sure you have it. I have noticed that if you use the phone app you do not see the attachments in the messages, so make sure you access the attachment through a computer.
