Nice property, some concerning events during stay
The good: the property is as described, updated kitchen and master bathroom was very nice. the back yard although seems small is spacious with outdoor patio and table area that was great. It feels like a living in home which some people will really like (but can make you feel uncomfortable like you are invading someone's space). needs some work: the owners instructions about getting into the house needs some updates with one 2 different set of instructions on how to get into the house. There also needs better instructions on how to use the TV and AV system which took awhile to figure out. initially the AV system had the outdoor speakers turned on high when you turn on the TV with no way of turning them off. I'm not sure how but was able to turn it off but that was annoying to have to deal with. the bad: the owner has ability to set the alarm remotely but set it one day too early while I still was renting the property. without some quick thinking and educated guessing about the alarm code we would have had to deal with alarm going off and police showing up. Who would want to deal with that on your vacation. To make matters worse, I contacted the owner and never heard an apology about this. it could have been a big headache and could have ruined my weekend. the confusing: owners have the ability to rate you during your stay, I got 4 stars for cleanliness? I did everything as asked, put all sheet and towels in the laundry room, put all dishes in dishwasher and turned it on, cleaned out the fridge, wiped down the kitchen and dinning table. I consider myself relatively clean person and tried to be respectful of the owner's property. Am I suppose to clean the house myself and also pay for cleaning services afterward? Is the property suppose to look like I was never there to get 5 stars? This and the alarm system problem left me with less than good feelings on what could have been a great weekend. what a shame....
