Beautiful place, poorly maintained, and you must ckean
The location is excellent, right on the lake, a short trail walk to the shore, and the property is 70's chic, but it had not been properly cleaned and dusted. Spiders, spider webs, and Cobb webs, and lots of dust
As a renter you have to clean the place, including loading and unloading the dishwasher, stripping the beds and taking the trash out before you go, or you dont get your deposit back. Unlike any rental I've ever had before.
Since the renter has to do all of the cleaning, I'm not sure what the cleaning fee was for, really.
The dishes, cooking utensils and pots and pans had to be prewashed before use, as there was food left on them, probably after the last renters ran them through the diswasher, which didn't do a very good job. Also the stove had food in the burners from the last meal cooked before our arrival.
For what I paid per night, plus a cleaning fee and deposit. I expected more for that price, but was sorely disappointed. Some of the linen had to be washed before use as well. And the washer and dryer are old and the dryer didnt work at first, but the lady who was supposed to keep the place informed me that you had to set it at a certain spot, then it would work, but we had to put something behind the control to keep the dryer on, once it actually started.
My family and I had a great time, in spite of the cleaning and dust and poorly maintained property and appliances, because of the lake and being together.
I did get all of my deposit back, but not the cleaning fee, even though we did all of the cleaning. The WiFi was terrible and we never did get any programming on the TV. Cell service was also horrible.
I hope this helps, knowing exactly what you're getting in to if you rent this place. Oh, and they wanted us to take the trash off the property to a dumpster somewhere. Not cool, not sanitary, with the kids and carseats. Not sure what they were thinking.
The best property on the river for Jet Skis.
We had an awesome stay at The Showboat. The location really can't be beat. The house is on a cliff directly above the river, with easy access to Lake Martinez and Furguson. The best part is the perfect, sandy, "semi-private" beach directly below the house. This seems to be the only house with a beach like this in the entire area. We kept our jetskis parked on the beach (when not riding them) all day and moored them on the dock each night. There was also plenty of space for us to park 4 trucks, 3 of them with trailers, plus a golf cart that we rented. As far as the house itself goes, it has an odd layout and it is a bit older, but it has plenty of space and the views are amazing. I can't wait to go back. I plan on staying here regularly.
Thanks Sam...We invite you back anytime.
Great house with a beautiful panoramic view.
The house had everything you needed to have a fun worry free vacation. The kitchen was a little dusty and there were a few cobwebs. Overall we had a wonderful experience and will definitely consider coming back.
Absolutely stunning house!
We had so much fun! The house fit us all perfectly and the beach was amazing. We can not wait to stay there again!
Great family house
Best weekend spent with family and friends! The house was awesome! The beach access is one of the best features that this property offers!
Best Vacation Ever 👍
We will be back! Loved that it is quiet ( a little louder some weekends ) but can walk to 2 restaurants/ bars and the most beutiful views from the house. Yuma downtown is 30 minutes away and easy to get to tourist sites. What we loved about the house was Everthing! Wished it was ours. It is a little quirky but that is the charm. Didn't use the boat dock only because we don't have a boat. Loved watching people fish and seeing the helicopters from The Proving Grounds doing fly byes. Everyone we met is so friendly and nice and the restaurants have great food. Relax and Enjoy!
So glad you enjoyed yourselves Christine. Look forward to having you back again any time.
