Not kid friendly, no expected amenities, dirty, did not meet expectations

  • 2 of 5

The pool for this house was great, and my kids loved playing in the backyard. However, when we arrived there was bird and mouse poop everywhere, and it took me a couple hours to clean it before I felt comfortable in the backyard.

There was only two sinks out of the 7 in the house with hand soap. There was no shampoo, blowdryer or any other personal care items. The kitchen is bare, and there are not staple items such as measuring cups or salt and pepper. I had to go buy paper dishes. Which is fine, but it would have been nice to know that before I got there.

The interior of the house is very cluttered. So many glass knick knacks on every available surface. It made it stressful with my three and five year old. The beds are also very high up, and the bedrooms are filled with extra items. There is also no pack and play, no high chair and every dish is glass.

There is no lounge area, and the technology is very old. The add touts surround sound, but it only has an old iPod hook up, and the speakers outside did not work. There is no television in the master bedroom, and on our stay from Thursday to Sunday the property managers could not get the wifi to work. I would have booked a different place if I would have known there would not be any internet. This was a major issue for me.

My first night I showered in the master bathroom, and there was a wad of black hair in the shower, and more on the wall. Overall the house was dirty, and I felt uncomfortable. There were dead spiders and crickets in the corners, and ant traps everywhere. The upholstered seating was old, and dirty. The bedding followed that same pattern.

The clutter was so prominent, but I really noticed it with the hand towels. By every sink there are "decorative" hand towels with ribbons on them that you cannot use. Which means you have nowhere to dry your hands after you wash them (assuming you can find hand soap). It made it awkward to be in any bathroom. There were also many small maintence problems that need to be fixed.

Overall, for the price, the house was such a disappointment. I would not stay here again, or recommend the house. It does has potential, just needs to be cleaned and updated!

Owner's Response: Rachelle, We are sorry to hear that your experience did not meet expectations. Our team will review the details of your feedback and correct accordingly. Thank you for taking time to share. The wifi issue has been resolved, but at the providers time schedule. From time to time services do fail - in this case hardware. The service provider did come out the following Tuesday after the guest left. We know how important wifi is and are sorry that we could not resolve on the weekend. We responded and did all that we could on Fri/Sat. when notified. This home is the only house in the subdivision - open field area and will have critters, tumble weeds, birds etc. from time-to-time, especially in the spring time. We work hard to control them and will continue to do so. We are sorry that this guest had this experience. There are ant stations in the home to help. We do spray for pests on a schedule. There are devices on the exterior of the home to help control other issues as well. Each home in our inventory is stocked with soaps, shampoos' etc. There should be a hair dryer at the home, as well as iron, ironing board, laundry soaps etc. to make the home usable for guests. If there is not we will correct. From time to time items do go missing. We will review and correct. Thank you again for the feedback. The home is best suited for teens and adults, more so than small children, even though they are welcome and other guests felt comfortable with their children. This guest is correct in her assessment - some parents may feel uneasy with certain aspects of the homes decor with small children. We hope future guests balance this review with the prior review(s) and our firms overall service. We are always grateful for honest feedback - we strive for excellent guest experiences.

St. George

We had a family group stay at this home in Hurricane. We had a fabulous time! The home is equipped with everything you would need. The beds are very comfortable. The yard was great. Everyone enjoyed the pool and patio area. The only drawback was the distance it was from St. George, though it only took us a few minutes to get there. We would definitely rent this home again.
