OK for the price
The owner was very responsive, good communication. The house was located right in the area we wanted, close to the rail trail for biking and easy access to lots of area locations. Overall the house was fairly clean and comfortable. The house needed airing out ( a bit of a strange odor) when we got there but we assume it was from being closed up for a while. The kitchen had plenty of utensils, pots and dishes for use. There were fresh herbs available out front and we appreciated that nice touch. Easy to prepare a meal. We used the grill one evening and it was clean and worked great. The TV and cable worked fine and we figured out the setup for the DVD. Printed instructions would be useful. There were lots of menus for local restaurants and information on things to see and do Two items that we found less than agreeable were the king bed mattress which had two troughs from use and the oversized living room furniture. The mattress should be replaced. The furniture was not really comfortable to sit in for an evening. Also, one evening while we were there it was quite cool and we wanted to use the fireplace, only to be told it was out of order and due to be fixed. The bathrooms were clean in general but the cleaners don't appear to look behind the door when they clean, a little dirty in the corners. I know it sounds picky but if a house is going to be rented out, these things matter. The on demand water heater seems like a good idea for a rental. Just wastes a lot of water to wait for the water to get warm. We decided to leave a day early due to some of the issues identified. Overall I would give the house a 3 1/2 stars out of 5. I do recommend the house just want the owners to be aware of issues that may be important only to us.
