Friendly hosts, accurate listing.
We’re completely satisfied and I’d rate this 4.7 or 4.8 stars out of 5. Not 5 because that would imply everything was perfect with no room for improvement, which isn’t the case.
As the review title states, the listing was accurate, the host was super responsive, and we had no issues with the property.
Check-in, with the front door’s electronic lock, was easy. The kitchen appliances and washer/dryer look new and worked well. The beds were comfortable, and the layout of the top level is conducive to group conversations.
We don’t have any real complaints but offer some suggestions:
1. Add WiFi. Most of us could not get cell service, even outside. This could have been serious - e.g., no way to call 911.
2. Get higher water pressure in the shower.
3. Consider adding a screen door for the main entrance. Every time we opened the door, some flying insects would get into the house. Maybe add some bug zappers.
4. The kitchen is quite well equipped, and could still benefit by adding cereal bowls, a cutting board, colander, slotted spoons, etc.
Overall, I’d recommend this for a family looking for a quiet getaway.
