Guestbook comments from the owner

The house couldn’t have been more perfect for us. Our 2yr old loved the little house on the patio and the adults loved sitting outside and watching her play. The children’s books and toys were a big hit too. She fell in love with the little stuffed lion (bear?) that was on the bookshelf in the living room—called it her baby and carried it everywhere. I had to hide on an upper shelf of the bookcase so we wouldn’t have to report a toy-napping incident. We went to the toy store on Mass and got her a substitute ‘baby’ to take with her on the plane.

The kitchen was thoughtfully & thoroughly supplied. The drawer with the large selection of spices/herbs was a delight to all the cooks in our family. The really nice selection of pots and cast iron pans, and the ample supply of dishes & silverware, made it easy to prepare family meals.

We were surprised at how quiet the house was in spite of being on 9th. The furnishings were all comfortable/attractive. Enjoyed the artwork too!

Also, appreciated how promptly you responded to my email questions. We would gladly stay at your VRBO again and recommend it to others.

Kind regards,

Clean, Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The house met all the expectations for what we needed. Our basketball team had a weekend trip there and some of the coaches and players decided we would try this to an alternative to another hotel. More than perfect. 5 bedrooms. 2 very sizable for players. Open kitchen, dining and living room area made it very comfortable for breakfast and dinners. Clean bathrooms, kitchen and bedrooms. Convenient location to all possible activities. We will try and come to this location every time we have a tournament in Lawrence.

Ok at best

  • 3 of 5

Not real clean. Needs new furniture. Beds not comfortable and no extra blankets. Called landlord for Wi-Fi password and he couldn’t produce it. TV had analog channels only. Bottom line: it feels like they don’t care about what guests think of the house.

Owner's Response: Ron, We accommodated you with a 3 hour early check-in time while we had someone checking out that same day. Please know that we are always available to have the cleaners come through again if there are any issues. I responded immediately to your wifi question about the network name and since you didn't ask any further questions I assumed you were able to get connected. We offer Amazon Prime, Netflix and network apps along with digital TV. If there was anything you were hoping to watch, we are happy to accommodate, you simply need to ask. Thank you for the feedback so that we may address any issues needed.

Everything we needed was right there. You could get anywhere in just a few minutes. We had the space and accommodations to host friends and family. This home was well equipped and nicely decorated. In a convenient location with necessary shopping nearby. Private, quiet and secure. Any questions to the owner were quickly answered and addressed. Everything you need is there. Spacious rooms and comfortable furniture. We would definitely come back.

Roomy and comfortable. Conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

Being from CA, we greatly enjoyed the firefly show in the private front yard every evening. The owners were very responsive to questions and there to help when we inadvertently got locked out. The home is filled with an eclectic selection of artwork and the kitchen had most of what we needed to cook a family style breakfast. The Merc market is within walking distance for healthy provisions.

Great place for our needs

  • 4 of 5

We had 9 adults and found the home to be roomy and great for family visiting. The location is convenient and hosts were very helpful answering our questions. One request was adding more facecloths. The dining table had not been cleaned very well and placemats were soiled. A few folks mentioned the cleanliness was less than expected so you may mention that to your cleaners. All in all it met our needs very well. Thanks.

Owner's Response: Lisa, Thanks for the feedback! We will let our cleaners know. We are always happy to have the cleaners come back and fix any places they missed. I will remind them about the table and we'll replace the table cloths. There are more wash clothes available, we didn't realize you needed more. Please know that in the future we are happy to provide anything you need, all you need to do is ask!! Thanks, Evan
