Everything seemed clean, but the property needs some TLC.
The shower especially needs work. It took some time to figure out how the knobs worked and shower head was immovable.
It also would've been nice had the AC units been turned on prior to our arrival. It was very hot on the second floor and we had to delay bedtime in order for the bedrooms to be cool enough to sleep in.
We also coudn't figure out how to access the backyard which was part of the reason why we rented the property. There was a very nice picture of the yard on the listing, but no way to access it.
The screen door on the front was falling apart and there were no hand towels in either bathroom.
Great affordable place
Our stay here was only for the night. The host was very communicative. The stay was good. Rooms clean and plenty of towels provided. Air conditioning worked great! There were a few minor repair issues with the operation of blinds and a couch that has the finish coming off. Pretty minor for us... We would stay there again. Host provided a detailed document that have lots of helpful information!
Do NOT Stay Here. DANGEROUS FOR KIDS.
Bodily fluids on the beds (2 of 3 with clearly already used bedding), removed smoke detector, cigarette burns in the bedding, non-functional deadbolt, hair and bugs.
We couldn't even stay the night and the owner was not helpful at all. Suggested that it was our responsibility to fix the smoke alarm and that the dirt, dust, shot glasses, soiled bedding, unsafe lock and many hairs still constituted as "child friendly".
Totally horrible. Ruined our trip...jad to spend extra $$ to find another place to stay so that I could get my daughter (flower girl) ready for the wedding.
I waited to write this review to give the owner time to make this right. He did not and I hope you won't make the same mistake we did by booking with him.
Erinn’s complaint is bogus and this was a plot to get a refund because she was past the window for a cancellation full refund.
Erinn sent me a message on the day of check in and I called her 30 mins afterwards. She was very rude over the phone and kept saying she wants a full refund. I politely asked her to point out the issue (if any) and I will get it resolved immediately but she was unwilling and only wanted a refund.
I recorded a walk through in the house as soon as I got to the house which was about 20 mins after the guest left the house and provided the video to HomeAway / VBRO. The platform saw no issue with the listing and her complaint case was closed.
Great philly experience
Home was in a nice quiet neighborhood. Close to the city and attractions.
Quiet, spacious house in a great neighborhood
The house is very spacious - four of us stayed at Michael's home and had plenty of space to spread out - we planned a short sewing getaway as a quiet girl's weekend - and we were comfortable in the living space. The beds are not very comfortable - the mattresses are lumpy and you can really feel the springs. The kitchen is well-equipped if you want to cook on-site, which we did - bring dishtowels and hot pads, as there are none in the kitchen. We also noted that the house sleeps 7 but there were only enough towels for 1 person per bedroom. We were glad that someone in our group brought an extra set of towels as we did not have enough for all 4 guests. Michael was quick to respond to all of our inquiries and immediately replied when i texted about an issue with the door lock. Overall a nice stay, but not luxury as the listing suggests.
Plenty of Space on a budget
With three bedrooms and a kitchen this is a good overnight stop for a family. It is a budget stay with just what you need and not more. It would be nice if they had extra pillows (we slept on the decorative pillow shams) and a few more things in the kitchen like a toaster and a hot pad or two to take things out of the oven. Also it does sleep 6 but there are only 4 chairs at the table so you might have to eat in shifts. The place is secure and nice looking on the inside and has a flat screen tv and WiFi. We were comfortable.
