traveler reviews for this new paltz house rental

Great Place for a Weekend

Review submitted: July 27, 2014   Date of arrival: July 25, 2014

I'll start by saying that reserving the house from the owner was very simple. My emails were answered promptly and we were able to book this place for the weekend with ease.

This is a wonderful house to rent out for a weekend. We came up with a dozen guys from NYC and were all very pleased with the accommodations. We were able to pick up our 12th guy from the Poughkeepsie station which was pretty close to the house. There is also a paintball field twenty minutes from the house called Paintball Sports NY which was a lot of fun.

The house was very clean when we got there. The deck is nice and looks out into some grassy fields. However, the one issue I had with the view in the back was that it looked out onto a pond that is covered in algae and sadly had two detergent bottles floating on the surface. Otherwise, the place is really pleasant and quaint. The grill worked perfectly and the kitchen was stocked with dishes, pots, and pans for our use.

There is a nicely sized front lawn for games and a basketball hoop in the driveway too. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to go upstate with a bunch of family and friends for a weekend getaway!

Owners response: Michael, thanks for the review.

1). 2 detergent bottles are not a garbage but placed by the plumber last week to hold up
one of the hoses; until our new well water is connected to a new filtering system in about 2 weeks.

2). As for our spring-fed pond being green, yes, most of our-sized ponds (in-and-around immediate area) have this seasonal changes it goes through; it takes place usually in July & August. And this is the time when many bull frogs generate an incredible sound in the pond.

3). Glad you were able to enjoy the grill.
We have updated the gas BBQ grill yesterday.

Great property, needs attention to detail

Review submitted: July 14, 2014   Date of arrival: June 19, 2014

This is a wonderful, large property in a great location for hiking and cultural activities, but the house needs better maintenance and attention from the owner.
1. This is actually 4 bedrooms. The 5th bedroom is a pull out sofa in the downstairs game room, which is open to the kitchen, so not very private.
2. The dining table could seat 12, but there are only 7 chairs, leaving other guests to perch on counter high stools from the kitchen.
3. The owner provided one bath towel per guest. No hand towels, wash cloths, bath mats, or dish towels.
4. In the kitchen, several outlets don't work, the stove is hard to light (probably the burners need a good cleaning), the warming drawer doesn't work, the ice maker doesn't work and there are no ice cube trays for the freezer. When we arrived, there was a rotten banana in a bag in the kitchen and several of the serving bowls in the cabinet were crusted with old food.
5. Several light bulbs were out and the batteries in some of the remotes for the entertainment center were dead. There were no replacement light bulbs or batteries in the house. The sash cords in many of the downstairs windows are broken.
6. The deck is lovely but looks out on two ponds completely covered with green algae.
There was a major plumbing problem when we stayed. The owner certainly could not have predicted this and took steps to deal with it right away. But he never acknowledged the inconvenience of having only limited water for 24 hours (no showers, cooking or dish washing) or the time we spent waiting for the plumber Friday night (we finally ordered in pizza) and then following the plumber's directions for refilling the system until the next morning (a process that unfortunately did not solve the problem). A thank you and/or an apology would have been appropriate.
With some work and better customer service, this could be a 5-star property, but it's not at this time.

Owners response: Thanks for your response.
It is important to hear from you; what we need to improve.

To begin, if I didn't say "sorry" or "thank you" in dealing with the water issue, certainly I need to say it repeatedly. Water in the rural home is a life line & it was crucial for me to solve as soon as possible for your group & thank you for dealing through it. Last week, we dug an emergency well so to clear up any possible future water issue.

Water condition in the pond is seasonal & we did not want to use any chemical to kill- most of living things in the pond- in order to get rid of 2 months of algae season.

A number of lists you noted, I will make a proper adjustments & instruct our cleaning agent to follow up whatever is necessary.

Thanks again for feedback & I am sorry for not communicating properly.

Great space! Comfortable and relaxing.

Review submitted: March 18, 2014   Date of arrival: March 14, 2014

I rented this property for the weekend to celebrate a 30th birthday. We drove from NYC, looking to escape from the city and take in some fresh air. We had about 12 adults and stayed for two nights. We found we had plenty of room to hang out and play games in the great room (love the wood stove), to all eat together at the long table, and for our sleeping arrangements we had space for everyone to rest comfortably.

The property has some great deck space, a propane grill for cooking and plenty of kitchenware as well. There are some games and puzzles at the house, a foosball table and a good stereo, as well as it being very uniquely decorated. There are also some hiking trails about 30 minutes from the house if you want to get out for the day.

A friend of mine recommended this house and I was very pleased with our stay. Michael was responsive and helpful throughout the rental process. I would highly recommend this property for people of all ages. Overall a fantastic property. Hopefully we will be getting back there soon!
