Good Enough For Us!
We spent over a week in Denver and surrounding areas with another family. When I first rented this home there was only one review, by the time we were ready to travel there were a few others with a some negative response. I contacted the owner and he reassured me with the issues I had. He also sent me some positive feed back he had received, and I felt better before our departure. Once we arrived in the neighborhood we were a little concerned, as we were traveling with kids, and the area seemed a little sketchy. We were happy to find the off street parking in the back. This house actually served our 2 families great...it is a great location to lots of attractions, close to freeways, light rail and easy to get around. We explored the area every day. Each morning we sat out on the front patio and enjoyed our coffee and the local neighborhood feel. The neighbors directly next store were very friendly and nice, chatted with them each day. Here are some of our concerns: it was a little loud, but we dealt with it just fine. The master bedroom, needs drapes, there are french doors with nothing on them, facing the street. I quickly found a blanket and thumb tacks and fixed it...but kinda tacky for your vacation. On the pictures it had shown a bbq, and I had even made sure it was there by contacting the owner...well when we got there it was gone. We would have most likely used that a couple times if it had been there. The house really needs amenities! Fully stocked kitchen...NOT! It was hard to cook a meal...there were no pot holders, and few kitchen towels, needed a baking sheet for bread and there was none. There was limited kitchen supplies and no spices or basic cooking items. Most houses that I have rented in the past have a few items in the cabinets, which is great when you want to cook in. The bathrooms/kitchen were about out of hand soap. We had to go out and buy TP and paper towels, as there was none. There was also no trash bags except store grocery bags. There is a washer and dryer, but no laundry soap. I wanted to wash our towels and had to go out and buy laundry soap. Heres the deal...the place was great...if the owner would just add a few "extras" some supplies, some board games, some movies, a well stocked kitchen, more items you need everyday to run a household it would have been much more enjoyable! I had to buy coffee filters for the coffee pot! (which I left for the next 100 pots of coffee) I just think a little attention would be nice!
