This was probably one of the worst vacation rentals we have had. The carpet throughout was old and filthy. The dishes in the cupboards were so full of dirt we had to wash before using them. The refrigerator was so old, it barely kept food cold. Could not adjust the temp on oven due to buttons being broken. Basement reeked of cat pee, to the point that we could not even use the area. Basement...

Management response:

We were very surprised to get this review. One of the things we tell _every_ guest is to treat us like the front desk of the hotel, and let us know if there are any challenges. We live ten minutes away, we are not absentee owners! They did not contact us. We also have over TWO DOZEN different places. If...

Pros- great location for walking/pets/cycling, nice path right outside the front door, kitchenette and grill Cons-price, spiders, cleanliness, many non-working items, safety concerns, non-responsive owners, non-scheduled maintenance The out the door price listed on some sites does not include several fees. Our advertised price did not include the $200 deposit that we were charged but not returned. It also did not include the $35 room cleaning fee or the $150 pet fee. Most places charge...

Management response:

We have about 15 reviews on this website, and all but this one are four or five star. We are taken aback, because we live in this building, and used to live in this studio apartment (#6). We have 24 different spaces and have hosted many, many dozens of families each month over this and three previous summers. We freely...
