Evolve Vacation Rental
- english, french, german, spanish
We rented this home for six women to celebrate a Big Birthday. The listing description is accurate. The home worked perfectly for our weekend! It is set up well for entertaining and sleeping, and the location is perfect. We drove less than 10 miles all weekend because the house and neighborhood were so enjoyable. The living room was large enough for 6 yoga mats, and the kitchen and deck area provided plenty of room for everyone. The home is dated and could use some minor maintenance, but we were not looking for luxury in a beach cottage. The Wifi worked wonderfully. The owner was responsive to questions before our trip. Our favorite thing to do was walk on the sandbar at low tide at the end of the road. It was a very peaceful location for a holiday weekend!
Photos accurate should have looked closer. It was fairly clean, not the dishes. It was very dated and needs updating in bathrooms, floors, and lighting. The location was great, price low. Views and beach access wonderful.
Kay, it's great to hear you enjoyed this home's prime location and gorgeous views of the ocean. We are happy to share that since your stay, the homeowner has made several updates to the property and are continuing to make adjustments to enhance the stay for upcoming guests. They have also hired a new cleaner to ensure the home is meticulous for all guests who come to visit. We are confident future guests will love staying at this home! Best, the Evolve Team
Outdated and Not Maintained
It has a great location that is for sure. But it has the decor of a 70s ski lodge with all knotty pine walls and ceilings. The amenities are equally as dated, and a number of items like the shades, closet doors, etc were broken. As a landlord, I would think a bucket of paint here or there, and some appliance updates could have gone a long way. Especially for the cost...I am crossing this property off of my list.
Benjamin, we love hearing that you enjoyed this home's beautiful location and views of the ocean and pool. We're sorry to hear certain aspects weren't what you were hoping for. Since your stay, the homeowner has made numerous updates with future guests in mind so that everyone can enjoy this lovely home and this peaceful area in Biddeford. Best, the Evolve Team
Worst Vacation Rental EVER!!
This house was beyond neglected and unclean! Spiders & webs everywhere, broken doors and windows, outdated kitchen & bathroom appliances (literally from the 1970's), and so much more that made this stay VERY unpleasant. We couldn't use the downstairs bathroom because of the infestation of daddy long-leg spiders. The upstairs toilet leaked water with every flush; the couches were very dirty and outdated; the DVD/VCR combo TV from the 1980's didn't play the VHS (although there were several VHS tapes); all but 2 fans were broken (and the working ones were filthy).
> broken window openers
> leaky upstairs toilet
> broken closet door & dresser knobs
> old uncomfortable beds (fortunately we rented clean sheets)
We only stayed because there was no where else to go on such short notice in peak season. The area is nice , but unfortunately the house was not!
The owner had the nerve to ask me to measure the windows (during our stay) for new curtains. MUCH more than curtains is needed to make this place comfortable. He & rental company (Evolve & VRBO) should be embarrassed and ashamed to list something that was in such disrepair. Highly disappointed and highly unrecommended!
Kyra, thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. We are happy to report that many updates to the house have taken place since your stay. The homeowners have replaced the TV you mention with a flatscreen TV so future guests can have a more comfortable stay here. They have also deep cleaned the house to ensure the scenario you encountered does not recur. Thank you for your feedback and for giving us the means to create five-star experiences moving forward. Best, the Evolve Team
Well-maintained clean house
This house met our expectations, no surprises, it is clean and well-maintained, very pretty location, sleeps 5-6 comfortably.
Terrible and unpleasant.
No oil in tank so so heat and hot water. Has not been vacuumed in a very long time. Had to clean the place ourselves. Add said. “NEW” was no way near new. Was suppose to have WiFi, and of course was not able to hook up to. We also had to fix up the deck lattice in order to sit out there. Spider webs and spiders everywhere. Yuck, yuck. 😩�😩�😩�😩�
Loraine, we're very sorry that the property was not ready for your arrival. We take these concerns seriously - we have very high standards for our properties, and expect them to be clean, safe, guest ready, and as advertised. We appreciate you working with us as we resolved the situation, and we hope that the measures taken by Evolve make up for some of the inconvenience. We will continue to work with the homeowner to ensure that future guests do not share your experience. Thank you again, and we hope to have the opportunity to assist you in booking a vacation rental that will exceed your expectations. Best, the Evolve Team
