Misleading Pictures

  • 1 of 5

The outside pictures taken years ago. The house does not appear as presented. The outside deck has several rotting boards. Water dripped from a repair in ceiling. Oven had foil with baked on food from previous renters. Hardwood floors dirty and down to bare wood. Couch filthy, and stains on other furniture. Mattress pad had urine stains on it. No cover on window ac unit in finished attic. Dust balls hanging from ac return filter.

I have rented many places from Home Away and have never been unhappy until now. This is certainly not a good presentation of the homes they represent.

This was NOT an enjoyable stay and I would not recommend this home.

Owner's Response: We certainly hate to hear that the vacation home did not meet your expectations. 700 Jackson is an older home but prides itself in being comfortable and accommodating for all types of groups. We are good listeners and we hear loudly some areas that need to be polished. We certainly wish that you had felt comfortable alerting us to your concerns immediately so we could have made your stay more enjoyable. At any rate, we hear you, and have actively made changes you have recommended. Thank you for your feedback.

Great short visit

  • 5 of 5

Older home with large rooms . Fit our larger group with no problem. Appreciated the cleaning supplies that were there. Close to all the attractions with a small playground across the street for the little ones. Owners are very responsive. I usually rent from rental companies and was wary of renting from this site. But I was glad I did - you would not get the same value or response from a rental company. We enjoyed our stay and appreciate the opportunity to rent this house. My only suggestion to the owners is to perhaps start replacing some of the cookware.

Owner's Response: Hi Kelly, Thank you for your very nice review; we do appreciate it. Also, for your suggestion on the cookware. We will pass this on to the property managers. Enjoy your summer, Jan and Graham Stevens

A nice older cape cod home

  • 4 of 5

Jan the owner is a caring trusting helpful person to let 5 older men on motorcycle rent her home not knowing any of us. Thank you Jan we had a great stay. I would recommend this home to anyone. Every thing is a short drive most under 7 miles. Food Lion just around the corner. One draw back firehouse just across the street BUT I will say we did NOT hear them at night but during the early after noon they earn there money.

Convenient location

  • 3 of 5

This house was conveniently located to Busch Gardens. It easily fit 6 adults and 2 children. The owners provided two pack and plays and a high chair for the kids to use. This saved us from having to pack extra items and was very helpful.

The house itself was not very clean when we got there, and the couch was stained and shabby. This was a bit disappointing, since we had two little kids crawling around on the floor. Also, the application to rent the house was a lot more involved than previous locations that we had used with VRBO.

Overall it provided a place for a family vacation, and we all had a nice time.
