Understand this property is a new rental. Wonderful floor plan, very comfortable beds, very clean home. Would like to point out a few issues. Let’s start at the entrance….. First impressions are so important , and walking into the gate , really needs attention. The lock box check in was a challenge. Both upstairs and especially downstairs had the strongest odor of moth balls. At least try to air out or supply air fresheners. Shower in master bath was hit and miss to work Other bedroom with king bed had a tv that never worked. All rooms need some sort of channel guide for televisions. The gated entrance on the left needs to be offered as an entrance to the downstairs space. Carrying things upstairs to then need to carry everything down the narrow spiral staircase was the pits The small patio downstairs and the grounds are in dire need of a good clean up. Hate to point out so many things , but you asked! Will definitely be renting from you guys again, but unfortunately not this house. Thought it was pet friendly, found out the day before vacation otherwise, and scrambled to find a place for our pet. Did enjoy our time there with family.

Jo Ann - we truly appreciate all of your candid feedback, especially on a new rental to the program. We have addressed these issues and hope you will give us another opportunity to exceed your expectations.
