Pros: Of the 4 bedrooms, 2 were large. One large one was the master, the other had an extra bed & sofa in it which was perfect for my daughter & her small family to stay in. All the beds were very comfortable. The home was roomy, we never felt cramped with 8 adults & 2 children. Everything was clean & there were plenty of towels. They had a pack n play, crib & highchair there. Appliances all worked well. AC was sufficient. The pool area & deck were very nice. The deck has latching gates to keep small children away from the pool. There were lots of floaties & toys. The backyard was nicely landscaped & the lights on the deck were nice.
Cons: The "fully equipped" kitchen, is not fully equipped. First, there were no knives other than butter knives when we arrived. We let the owner know & they dropped by some dollar store knives, brand new in the pkg. This was ok, but two immediately broke when we tried to use them, like shattered, & we had to pick the plastic out of our food. Pots & pans were either really, really big or small. Very little for plastic cups for kids/pool area. There were no baggies, saran wrap, dish soap, dishwasher soap - not even a little to get us started. We were left 2 garbage bags. The refrigerator is completely cleaned out, which is fine, but it is nice when condiments are kept. Some of the bathrooms didn't have garbage cans. The notes ask you to wash the towels you've used, but there was no laundry soap.
As others have stated, we had issues with the hot tub. It was draining water & wouldn't heat up. My adult children tried to figure it out & changed the setting for the tub to "service", which seemed to stop the leak. The owner called & asked it to be switched back to auto, so we did that. The water heated but drained out. We were never able to use the hot tub & it was part of the reason I booked. The owners don't seem to comprehend that it's leaking, & fast. In a few hours of time, the jets are exposed. They told us to keep a hose in it, but that completely defeats the purpose of a HOT tub. I explained that & didn't get anywhere. The furniture on the deck had stained and torn cushions, so they had put towels over them all, again, showing lack of maintenance.
So, while this wasn't our worst stay ever, it wasn't our best either. I probably wouldn't choose to stay again, even though it is a very lovely home. It's not being maintained very well, sadly and the kitchen was challenging to use.
