Less than advertised
This house was nice. It was clean and away from it all, however, we found it to be less than advertised on the internet. For example, it claims one can "walk through the 25 richly wooded acres." This is simply not true. The house sits on a very steep hill and unless you have a machete handy, there is no 'walking' through the 25 acres. There is also a claim about wifi. "After a full day of adventure, you can sit back and enjoy wifi: - uh - not so much if you come later in the month. The wifi was 'throttled' for us the entire time - one has to wait until 2 AM to have reliable internet. Sending emails was nearly impossible - wanting to do anything more than that is impossible. The wifi is set up to a max of 10 gb per month of data - that gets used up very quickly, so if you come later in the month, do not expect to be able to use it. This was a real inconvenience, as many of us thought we could do a bit of work while there, but it was impossible as there is also no cell service (which is fine, but without internet, it's difficult to get any work done while away). The garden was there, but it is very small. Don't expect to truly pick any veggies for cooking - at least when we there in mid August, there was really nothing to pick. There is a claim that, "The kitchen will provide you with everything you need to entertain your guests." Again, not true. We had to wash dishes by hand many times, because we simply ran out of plates (there were five of us there). After breakfast, if you don't wash your plates, you will be eating out of pans for dinner. Further, the kitchen doesn't have everything you need - there is no blender, for example. When we arrived, there weren't even hot pads or kitchen towels - we had to spend time emailing to let people know (which took a good five minutes to send a simple email). There was one sponge, but no kitchen rags at all. This house is nice - it's clean and suited our needs, but it really is not as advertised. Yes - there is a 'television' but it doesn't broadcast anything - it's a monitor for the DVD player. The 'private' fishing hole is across the highway and accessed by walking down the driveway and crossing the street. It's nice, but not really 'private.' There were people parked at the bottom of the driveway one day who were using the 'private' fishing hole across the street. The listing should change to reflect reality. VRBO listing says 'duty free shops' are in the area - why that is included boggles the mind.
