    Wedding

    Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. I was more than happy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The place needs a deep cleaning . It smelled like cat pew / mold upon entering . I found mold in the washing machine . The grill didn’t get hot enough to cook the dinner party food I planned . The guests closets smell so bad they wouldn’t hang their wedding outfits in them .The patio cushions were wet, torn and moldy . Appliances in the kitchen were found put away dirty . The silverware had to be washed before using half dirty . Linens and towels old and tired . The property manager Mike Burke work non stop to right the wrongs that he could . He was extremely helpful .I was annoyed and disappointed. The place is great for large families. The pool and grounds were beautiful.

      Family Wedding weekend , hosted Rehersal dinner

      We arrived and the house smelled awful ..cat urine/mold !!Washer had mold in it . Cookware put away dirty . Silverware draw smelled and had food crumbs in it. Mike the property manager responded to our call . He came an was able to start the AC for the whole house , cleaned the washer as best he could of mold , bought air fresheners for the house. Overall the house needs a deep cleaning !! Guests were unable to hang garments in their rooms closets due to the things left in there smelled horrible.The beds are old and uncomfortable ,as well as the linens and towels .The gas grill wouldn’t heat high enough to cook our dinner (12 people)so we had to finish it in the kitchen . The next day Mike went and brought us propane tanks for us to use and it worked great ! Thanks again Mike !!The patio furniture is old and weathered . The cushions wet and moldy ... really rough shape . This home has a great flow for large gatherings , relaxing at the pool and playing outdoors activities!! The grounds are beautifully landscaped ! However, the beauty of the home is overshadowed by the fair condition I described. The owner needs to spend some $$ on this beauty!!

          Amazing Birthday Weekend!

          Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This house is awesome and has something for everyone! We had such a great time! Even though it rained a few days, we were able to use the theatre room and game room downstairs which the kids loved! The golf cart was a hit along with the basketball court. The rooms were comfortable and the kitchen area with fireplace was our favorite spot. Highly recommend the home to anyone but especially large families!

            INTIMATE FAMILY REUNION 30th & 10th Birthday Celebration

            Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We have rented many homes, this one by far was our favorite in the Northeast. The owner was genuine and we felt cared for our comfort and that of our guests. Each space of the home was more magnificent than the latter. Oddly, not experiencing a home theater proved to be one of my personal favorite spots, that is outside of the main kitchen. Everything was well stocked, our traveling kitchen and cleaning supplies were rarely used. As others mentioned the home was clean and move in ready, and I am critical to a point on cleanliness. There are no negatives to the property, it is truly, lavish living at its best. Our family was thankful for the opportunity to reside in this home. You truly want for nothing! Dave, thank you for sharing your home, we will carry these memories forever. Take good care, Lisa & Bob
