DO NOT WASTE YOUR $$$!!
How this property was listed in Home away/VRBO was a totally misleading if not fraudulent misrepresentation! We typically are very easy to please patrons and extremely fair critics, but this was truly unacceptable not to mention extremely disappointing as we have been coming to Bar Harbor for years now. The listing stated parking available, however no parking was available as we had to park partially in grass on the street, there was no driveway. Stated bicycles available, no bicycles, had to rent. Stated communal swimming pool, no. It was a children’s wading pool approximately 2 feet deep! Stated two full baths, tub and shower. No. There was one shower tub combination and an extremely small stand up shower in other bathroom. Stated blow dryer. No- really? Stated dining table seats six. There was a small table against a window in kitchen with only four chairs! Stated three bedrooms. Third bedroom was unusable. The bed was slanted, and extremely narrow. Even for a small child they could have fallen out, which caused a lot of stress as we had to have two kids share a bed. And the bedroom was nowhere near the other rooms. Photos showing of furniture must have been from years ago? Spartan at best. House was truly in disrepair- we were grossly overcharged based on listing. Go stay at a nice B&B, don’t waste your money here!!
P.S. we placed a formal complaint with owners and have yet to be contacted. SHAME ON HOME AWAY/VRBO
As the property owners we are deeply disappointed that this guest had an unhappy visit. From our prior experiences with renters we have continued to receive highly complementary review and referrals to their friends and other family members. In need, many guests have returned in subsequent years.
Our response to this guest would be he didn't clearly read the description and appears to have come with many unstated expectations. Parking is available, and it is road side directly next to the cottage, so guests don't have to carry luggage, etc any distance. We offer that bikes are available for rental in Bar Harbor. We report the wading pool next store as being very shallow, which many of our guests with young children have certainly appreciated. There are indeed two dining room tables, one in the kitchen and a second one on our beautiful screened in porch, both of which easily seat 6 guests.
Please note, we provide our contact information (phone/Txt/Email) to each guest asking them to notify us of any concerns they have during their stay. Additionally our maintenance people are on the properties throughout the week.
We are sorry for this poor guest, as it appears he didn't clearly read the description. Should any guest have a question about any item, we are certainly willing and able to respond to clarify any concerns.
We found the house clean & comfortable. We were most impressed with the location!! The house sits in a quiet neighborhood and is within easy walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor. We also walked to several trails and didn't drive the car at all for the first two days.
