This is the worst place I have ever stayed. We get here and the so called "hot tub" they advertise is not what so ever a hot tub!!!!! It has no heat to it at all. Then later that night after showering we noticed in living room that the whole bathroom and living room was completely flooded!! So we call the property manager and he had nothing to say to help us out all. So we spent our Christmas Eve night cleaning up a flooded house! Awful custom services. Not to mention NONE of the appliances work!!!! Completely ruined our Christmas. DO NOT STAY HERE.

Owner's Response: I was actually very surprised to see that a review was left like that considering everything was handled sufficiently and I have the text message correspondence between me and the tenant that shows just that. Apparently a fitting came loose on a pipe on Christmas Eve. I spoke with them and informed them I would call the owner and get back with them. I called emergency plumbing services and as I awaited their call back to let me know if they serviced the area and/or had a technician available, I drove a few miles up the road to a late night mass that the owners (my parents) were attending to let them know of the problem as their phones were turned to silent. Within 20 minutes of being informed of the problem, I called the tenants back to see what else I could do for them to rectify the situation. The gentleman said he had turned the hot water off and they would be fine with it as long as someone was there Monday to fix the problem...I remember the gentleman saying,.."it's no problem we're Hoosiers". Problem was fixed Monday and I touched base and everything was ok......then I see the 'review' a day later. As a property manager I did everything I could do for them and I don't know what more to say.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great stay in this home, close to everything and pictures are accurate.The owners were very pleasant and quick to respond to any questions we had. We had many great nights swimming in the pool and watched beautiful sunrises/sunsets on the dock, even got to see a dolphin swim right under it! The only thing I would suggest for this home is tables and dressers in the two rooms that did not have them, besides that, this home was plenty spacious for my husband, 3 teenage daughters and myself. Thank you to the owners for letting us stay in your wonderful home!

Beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property. Centrally located. I spent a week with the family and it seemed we were at home. Everything you could think of, everything you need you find it at the house, just like if you were home. The kids enjoyed the pool and the fishing. We had a great time. I highly recommend it and will definitely go back.

Great view from the kitchen, the dining room, bedroom. Just a lovely home. The owners were nice too. The only thing that I didnt like was pool water was cold, we could not use it in March.
