Cute property, not as clean as I would like
The checkin and checkout process were great. Communication was great. The only problems I had were 5+ well developed spider webs with spiders in them, 4 of which were in the bathroom. Also, the kitchen floor was dirty when I arrived. The property, however, is a good size and good location. There were also no window coverings in areas of the house.
We will be sure to use a more aggressive approach with the spiders.
We will purchase curtains for the kitchen, and be sure to have the kitchen floor cleaned.
Thanks for your review.
The place served my needs. Cara was excellent at responding to my concerns about road construction. But past reviews, some from 2015, show that suggested improvements have not been done. My complaint is one of safety. There were two outside doors. One had a deadbolt but it did not work. So both doors could only be locked by the doorknob. Is that up to the Oshkosh code for rentals? I doubt it. The neighborhood was quiet. But I feel safer in a city with working 1/2” deadbolt locks. I appreciated the fenced in yard for the pup. That and Cara’s communication were the best part of the stay.
The back door deadbolt can be locked but not at the same time as the doorknob because of the door alignment. We will install a deadbolt on the front door.
I am glad your pup enjoyed the fenced-in yard!
overnight near oshkosh
Loved the fast communication with the owners and quick replies to all my questions. The place was perfect for us as we just needed a place to sleep after arriving late from an activity at the EEA grounds and it was close by.
This was my first time using VRBO and renting this property was so easy. I look forward to using them in the future.
The property was in a quiet neighborhood, some utility work going on but nothing terrible. Nice little house, clean and relaxing. Master bed is old and very hard, I'd suggest relaxing it. The house is close to the amphitheater, the water and the greater Oshkosh downtown area which made
for a lovely overnight stay. Thank you Brian and Cara for allowing us to use you place.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay and your time at Cardiff Cottage.
Thanks for the suggestion about getting a new bed for the master bedroom.
I dont know what title to give this unit.
This unit need some major upkeep/repairs 1. The mattress in both BR need to be replaced when you lay on either of them you feel the springs. 2.The lock on kitchen door need to be repaired or replaced 3. No curtains on windows in kitchen, and TV remote need some attention. With these improvements this unit will be up to par.
Thank you for your suggestions. I already bought a mattress pad/cover for the queen bed. I will buy new mattresses for both bedrooms. There is now a curtain on the back door in the kitchen. We will fix the deadbolts on both doors.
I was extremely upset with the place. The AC unit didn’t cool the place down at all. It took a half an hour before the sound would work for the Tv. If you use two items in the kitchen it will trip a breaker. We couldn’t make coffee and cook at the same time. You couldn’t use the microwave and do the wash at the same time. Something is not wired right and could be a fire hazard. The backyard needs to be mowed and there were spiderwebs everywhere. We were so disappointed we left a day early.
I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed.
We will look into your electricity concerns.
We replaced the TV and we refunded you your last night's stay.
