traveler reviews for this asheville house rental


Review submitted: July 10, 2014   Date of arrival: June 25, 2014

This property was misrepresented in many ways. Besides being dirty, i.e. dirty dishes in sink, dried food in microwave, refrigerator not clean, oven had heavy buildup of grease. Floors not swept, dusty. Only one queen bed and a pillow was placed under foam top to fill deep indentation. Double bed in second bedroom. Handicapped entrance required going around the house to patio over dirt path. Wood floors uneven in doorways. Owner seemed not care about condition of property. It is not an estate. It is a ranch house added onto with chocolate factory in attached garage. Other suites connected to the one structure. Gardens overgrown and untended. The lack of cleanliness made me want to wash all dishes before using but dishwasher was unusable until owner provided new wheels for rack. The owner had 2 months notice of arrival, so no excuse is acceptable for for the condition. It took 10 minutes for hot water to reach rear bathroom. When other tenant was filling hot tub, we had no water pressure. Under amenities was listed a washer a dryer, which were not available to us for our own use. The top cover of the master bedroom was soiled. Many afghans were available but, animal hair was prevalent on them and on the floors. This property was cleaner when we checked out on June 30 than when we arrived. The positives here was the location, the display of local artworks, large eat-in kitchen. The gardens could be beautiful if tended well. A professional cleaning would make it more likely for repeat business. The towels were nice. I don't think "estate" applies to this property.

Owners response: Wow! How to respond? I have been doing VRBO rentals for over 3 yrs and have always gotten great reviews as you can look at the properties listed with this one. I am a nurse and would never have anyone stay in an unclean home. The same people clean this one that clean the others that have 5 star reviews. There was a CLEAN dish in the sink. We do have people with dogs stay sometimes so we may have missed a blanket with hair on it. This a family house not a sterile hotel environment. The back area was over grass and a patio not dirt! We have been doing some reworking of the gardens and we were doing that while they were there. The bed did not have a pillow under it! They all have new memory foam mattresses and clean linens! I had a part over nighted for the dishwasher and put it on myself so they would not have to wait. I provided a shower chair for the guest that needed one immediately. I washed their towels and clothes and brought them back to them the next day. They called me daily with question and stated that the refrig was not working and the shower in the bath but it was found to be "operator error." I can guess this review was made by the relative that seemed upset from the time she arrived as all of the others in the party seemed to be having a great time playing ping pong etc.

Review submitted: June 5, 2014   Date of arrival: May 28, 2014

Terrific property with a great deal of character. Would have been perfect if the property had been cleaner upon our arrival. We did, however very much enjoy the serenity and character of the grounds. The owner was very attentive during our visit.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, girls getaway, sight seeing

Owners response: The guests, on the day of their arrival, asked to come 2 hours prior to the agreed on check-in time. When they arrived they decided that they possibly wanted the other 2 suites on the property. We tried to accommodate this last minute request so we immediately cleaned the 2 suites in addition to finishing the other cleaning while they were there 2 hours prior to check-in. After everything was clean the guests decided then not to rent the other 2 suites. As you can see we have rented the suites for over 2 yrs with all 5 star reviews. In the future we will not be able to allow early check-in unless it has been prearranged.
