The house was comfortable and had a great deck for our family gathering. It would have been nice to have more comfortable furniture on the deck since there were six of us and only seating for four. Also, there was no furniture on the lower deck and only four chairs at the dining room table. The bedrooms downstairs didn't have night stands or very good lighting for reading. The sink was clogged in downstairs bathroom but we were able to fix it. There were dishes in the dishwasher when we arrived that didn't seem clean so we re washed them and folded laundry left in dryer. The TV was small and had no cable. Everything seemed a little worn around the edges and a little bare bones for what we paid and compared to other houses we have rented for less on other visits. We made do and did enjoy our stay and found the kitchen pretty well stocked. The owner wanted to subtract a 7% fee that he said VRBO charged but I said that their processing fee was 2.5% He later agreed and it was after I had already paid the deposit with my credit card that he said he was going to charge us for that. There was no where in the agreement that he would deduct that fee if we weren't paying by check. That all felt a little uncomfortable and confusing and I thought that charge is a part of doing business, at least that is how it's always been with renting from home owners and how I manage my short term rental. We will have good memories of our family gathering but will choose another home on our next visit.
