Invest in a cleaning service

  • 2 of 5

Cleaning of this property wasn't never disclosed until 5 days before arrival date. This house had a quickie cleaning job the floors were filthy bottoms of our feet were black . The bathrooms had to be recleaned. I would invest in new beds you roll into each other and was uncomfortable. Some dressers would be nice in the bedrooms. The gas grill had so much grease in it after we started it we had a grease fire in it almost burned the person standing there took my husband 1 hour to clean the grill. You are excepting people to clean your property on there last day of there vacation time. Everyone has a different opinion of clean. The up side to this property it was in a good location. Driveway was big enough for tow vehicles. Everything was in walking distance. Floor plan was great for the number of people we had. I would be interested in renting this property again if the whole cleaning issue would be resolve. Despite the cleaning issue we had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our property. I'm sorry you were not aware of our requirement. However, the rental agreement you signed in December of 2015 clearly states: "At check out, please leave the cottage clean the way you found it at check-in." There are also statements about making sure the kitchen is clean and the laundry is done. Also stated clearly on the Rental Agreement you signed is the following statement: "If the cottage and property is not left clean, a cleaning fee will be charged." We do offer a cleaning service at an additional charge when requested. We feel the rental rate charged for a property of this quality, size and location is reasonable. Also, the Arrival Instructions were sent to you five days prior to your arrival. If you had concerns about the cleaning agreement, you could have raised them at that time. We always respond to questions and concerns. We have a property manager who checks the quality of the cleaning between tenants. I'm sorry if you feel it was not up to your standards. Again, we offer a cleaning service at an additional charge. We are happy that the layout of the cottage and the location met your needs. Thank you for your other suggestions. We appreciate input and always take suggestions under consideration. Dune Drift Cottage Rentals

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a long weekend, and had a fantastic time. Darcy was so easy to work with, and even allowed us to rent for a weekend instead of a week. The house was beautiful, super clean, and fully stocked. There were 8 of us, and we had lots of room. The house location is great, just minutes from the dunes. Well worth the amount we spent. We will definitely rent again.

Wonderful Place with Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The recent renovations are wonderful. We loved the layout for our family that included my husband and I and our daughter, her husband and two children. The home would have easily accommodated our son and his family also. The owner was easy to work with and responded quickly. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives. Everything was a short distance either by car or walking. I would have given this a 5 star rating but cleaning all bedding, vacuuming, and cleaning the floors and clearing out everything from the house by 11 made for a crazy morning. We did bring our own linen and bedding that made it a bit easier. Also another large garbage can would also have helped.

We enjoyed the area. With regard to the house, Dishes in cupboards were dirty. Expect prior renter was "short cutting" the cleaning requirements. We had to wash all the dishes before using. Put a lack of trust in the cleanliness as a whole.

Rate was pretty high for the quality of the property and added responsibility of doing the cleaning. Weren't appropriate supplies for doing the cleaning, using paper towel didn't seem effective for the job that needed to be done. Would recommend owners invest in a more professional cleaning service.

House has space to sleep 15 however is not really equipped for this many. There were not enough towels for this many people, or chairs for the fire pit, or space in living area. Upstairs rooms are hot even with air conditioning on. Kitchen is remodeled rest of house is older. Water pressure in showers is really low. We've rented many vacation homes around the country, this is too much $ for the quality received. Mattresses are old and uncomfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input. We are very sorry for the issue with the dishes -- that is totally unacceptable. We have asked our property manager to add that to the list of things she checks when making sure the property has been cleaned appropriately. Please be assured that the house has been cleaned and checked prior to each rental. The dishes were an unfortunate oversight. We advertise that our property sleeps 15 -- and it does. We offer 3 queen beds and three twin over full bunks. There should be towels for 15 at the property which should provide enough for the week since there is laundry available on site. We will definitely take all your suggestions into consideration. Thank you for your review -- we appreciate your comments. Dune Drift Cottage Rentals

Great House!!!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with our stay. We would definitely rent this house again. My son went in before me and then came out and told me the house was so modern. :) I absolutely loved the kitchen and dining area. My sister said that this was the best kids room of any house we ever stayed at. Darcy was very accommodating and always got back with us quickly if we had any questions. :) I also liked the fact that all of the bedrooms had the same size beds. That is sometimes a bone of contention in my family. :)

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was really roomy and could easily accomodate 10 or more people with no issues at all. The house was clean, beds comfortable, kitchen well stocked and in a great location. Literally located under 5 minutes drive from the sand dunes at Silver Lake and you could see the lake at the end of the road where the house is located. You could walk to the little shops, go karts and dining establishments in town within 10 minutes. We've taken several vacations the last couple years that were very commericailized (Disney, Smokey Mountains) and this was a change that we were ready for. We greatly enjoyed it and if we ever return to the area would definitlely rent this house again.
