“Great house”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Place is amazing, we were with a group of 10 people (4 couples and 2 single people) and stayed there for 2 nights. Lots of room, good sitting areas, nice pool and jacuzzi, good beds, everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. Good location (close to amenities), off road parking, simply a great place to have a good time!

The only minor points we found (and that is being somewhat finicky); the owner had forgotten to add us to the calendar so we did not have the initial welcome-pack email and were not greeted at the door. Luckily enough her partner happened to be there and let us in and showed us around. The other minor point was that the owner made us pay for her FlipKey fees which was quite weird. We were quoted a price, accepted it, then she reneged and upped it to include the fees she was being charged by FlipKey. I stated that we were already charged a FlipKey fee but she said that we were to pay for her fee too. I did not want to push the matter but did find it very strange (when we rent our place via websites we have to absorb our fees... it is what we pay for listing our place on their website) anyhow, this does not take away from the fact that the house is amazing and that the hosts are very friendly and are more than happy to inform and assist you whenever needed.

I'm so glad you had a great time. Thanks for your review.

I rent through a few sites, and post approximate prices. Actual prices vary tremendously with dates selected, length of stay, number of guests, etc. It is simply not possible to post correct prices for all situations. When someone sends an inquiry, I give them the total price, including all fees and charges. Initially, you received an automatic quote from FlipKey. You then received the total price, including all fees and charges.

To be honest, I am still not sure why you did not show up on the FlipKey calendar. When I accept a booking through FlipKey or any other rental site (I use a few), it should automatically show up as booked on the FlipKey calendar, which then syncs with my other calendar. I did not show up on the FlipKey calendar, and I have no clue as to why it did not. Luckily, I had manually noted a tentative booking in my own calendar, when I first sent you the payment request, to ensure that I didn't rent the place to someone else while I was awaiting payment. But I simply assumed that FlipKey would add you to the calendar as "Reserved" on their website. I now know that, with FlipKey, I need to manually enter the final booking.

“Luxurious, Comfortable and Practical for Extended Family”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Thank you so much, Laura, for allowing us to stay in your home. It has every conceivable amenity and two living rooms. So the children were able to have their own space, and allow the adults to enjoy some quiet conversations. It is close to the highway which makes it easy to get to all the tourist attractions. The property is beautifully landscaped. The house is nicely furnished with very comfortable bedding, and the kitchen is well equipped. There is a great outdoor grill, and it's very pleasant eating on the patio.

The amenities (pool, hot tub, fire pit, bbq, game room,) made our stay very comfortable. The owner was friendly and available at all times. The view is gorgeous and the house is well stocked with supplies. The quiet neighborhood combined with the peaceful landscaping and city skyline provided a relaxing atmosphere.

“Great place to stay!!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Good-sized house, tastefully decorated, in a very nice neighborhood (close to an unbelievably wealthy neighborhood). Large patio, nice well-kept pool and hot tub, large gas BBQ. Great view, probably 30-40 miles including mountains in the distance on a clear day. Big gourmet kitchen, well-equipped. Game room in the garage with a quality pool table.

Everything was clean and in very good shape. The landlord stopped by on the day we arrived to see if there was anything we needed, and was easily reachable when we couldn't figure out the cable box.

This place could fit a pretty big group with the kitchen and large great room. The dining table would be good for at least 16 people. We had dinner for 12 people at one time without any crowding. There was more than enough seating by the pool for all of us.

We use these sort of properties frequently, and this one definitely ranks in the top 10% of places that we have rented in the past. Can't go wrong here!
