As I read the reviews I saw mostly 5 stars and only one 1 star. I figured the 1 star was just an overly critical person. I was sadly mistaken, that was the only accurate review. Our experience started out by finding out the owners were't trustworthy. Before I booked the house I asked the owners about a possible discount as we staying in the area as volunteer workers, they responded that they would give a 10% discount, which I was very appreciative of since they were not obligated to offer anything. I asked how to apply it and she said to book the room for the full price and then she would refund the discount. I take the blame for being naive but I booked it and surprise, no refund! I e-mailed a few times to ask about it and received absolutely no response. But since there were no other options for our group to stay all together in the area we went. Arriving at the house was another huge disappointment, it was dirty and in desperate need of maintenance. It was overgrown with weeds all around the house, there were spiderwebs and spiders throughout the house. We had to clean the kitchen when we arrived, the sink was filthy, I cleaned off a layer of slimy black gunk. There was food splatters on the walls by the sink, stove and counters. It was really gross. We tried to open some windows to air it out, a couple were stuck closed and we were afraid to try to open it for fear of breaking them. Some of the carpets were dirty and stained. They have a list of warning and notices for using the hot tub, putting the garbage out etc. We've stayed in vacation homes that are rented through an agency a number of times, and they have all been great. This experience with a private owner is very different and I personally would never do it again. On the positive note, the view of the lake is beautiful and they do have 6 bedrooms and 3 baths as advertised.

Great Lakeside Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my friends and I have rented the Sandal's House - we love this place! The house is very accommodating, perfect for large groups. With direct access to the water, a hot tub, grill, and game room - it's ideal for a quick, summer getaway outside the city. Nicky and Mike are quick to respond with instruction and inquiries. Overall a relaxing, carefree fun-filled experience. Highly recommended!

Wonderful lake house - we had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this wonderful lake house for a week in June 2016. The place was immaculate, and was well stocked with basic supplies (toilet paper, paper towels, basics in the kitchen, and linens and towels). The views of the lake are fantastic, and there are plenty of rooms and beds. The photos are very accurate as were the descriptions in the listing. TV and internet worked great, as well. I also had a few questions for the owners during our stay, and they were very responsive.

Bottom line: great house, great views, very clean and as described. I highly recommend it!

Couldn't have asked for a more perfect home!

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I rented Nicky and Mike's home for New Years weekend and had an absolutely amazing time. The house is perfect. I can only imagine how beautiful it must be during the summer and how nice it would be to take a dip in the lake.

They set the house up for almost any situation. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Nicky contacted me to ask if there was anything I needed and if there were any problems. She was very helpful and made the whole thing a breeze. After dealing with many different renters while finding a house, it was nice to deal with someone who was available and hasslefree.

I would recommend this home to anyone I know and am considering renting again during the summer to take full advantage of the lake.

Thank you so much for letting us rent!

Wonderful house, beautiful view, very reasonable and nice owners.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for my husband's 60th birthday celebration. We loved the house; felt like home and had everything we needed. The lake and the view is beautiful. We were familiar with Warwick which is about 15-20 minutes away and had a great celebratory dinner at a restaurant there. We would not hesitate to stay again and would definitely recommend the property to friends and family.

The property was clean, and communication between the renters and me was clear. I brought my own cooking and kitchen supplies however it was completely unnecessary because they have many items already there. They also leave clear directions so there was not any confusions. My entire group enjoyed the property and the trip.

Let it be known that this house is not an empty "rental unit" place with nothing in it. We live at this house at least 1 or 2 days a week so while every room has closet space and drawers reserved for guests, you may find another closet filled with our personal things. We may have 1 shelf neatly full of food in the fridge and freezer. YOU ARE WELCOME TO USE THE CONDIMENTS AND SPICES ETC. FOR COOKING, and many of our guests love this convenience. 1 or 2 guests have complained that the house is not like an empty rental condo or a Sheraton hotel, but we believe this is precisely what VRBO and similar sites offer that make them different from renting an empty condo or hotel room(s) on Expedia or Hotwire. Nevertheless, we feel now we must tell people of this fact and not to expect an empty condo unit-type place. We have also noticed that elderly guests seem to sometimes complain about the stairs, the futon bed, the weather etc., and we feel this property may not be ideally suited for them.
