Nice but some pictures are misleading. Home is still under home improvement projects.
How do I start... The location of this home is excellent. It could not be better. We traveled with 4 adults and 4 kids (ranging from 2 to 12). The home handled our group easily. Based on the pictures and the price and the descriptions, we expected an immaculate home (their words). It was not. The front bedrooms were lacking molding and were under home improvement. The back bedroom closet was just sheetrocked and still being worked on. The deck is very nice but still a work in progress. All the area near the pizza oven and grill are simply cement boarded with exposed wires. The deck had some areas of unfinished deck where small kids could get a leg caught. The window in the front bathroom was covered in black mold around the edges. The dishwasher was broken and not told to us in advance. There is a backhouse that is also rented. We were not aware of this. At one point, the upstairs tenants were in the backyard that was supposedly ours. With small kids, we were not prepared for this and it was very concerning. Anyone with kids will understand our nervousness about backyard security after that. Parking. Our house key was for the front of the house. We assumed that was where we were to park. There was NO parking on the street. We only found out were were to park in the back after our stay. - even though our key was for the front door only...kinda odd. No huge deal but parking close would have been nicer than 10 or 12 houses away. The home was nicely decorated and was Vcomfortable. The street was safe with very little traffic, even if no parking!!! Plenty of hot water when we all needed to take showers (hey...it matters) The backyard, even incomplete with misleading pictures was very nice and fun to hang out in. I will say the owners do not think their images and descriptions are misleading even when I discussed this with them. The backyard is just not finished yet. It is 85% finished but the reality is there are plenty of areas in the home they are working on. Nothing they are working on ruined our trip in the least BUT for the price and descriptions given, we expected the home to be like the pictures presented. I ask myself would I stay there again. The answer is no. My expectations were based on this listing and we were let down a bit. Due to construction, the price was a bit high for what we got. If the description was accurate and the price was bit lower, our expectations would have been set lower and I think all concerns would have dissapeared
