The house is nicely updated and really cute. The bed was comfortable and the a/c worked well. The kitchen is fully equipped and easy to make a great meal at home. We enjoyed having 2 dining areas. It was nice having off-street parking in the back of the home. It would be especially nice if there was a way to unlock the back door from outside, instead of parking in back and going all the way around front to unlock the house. We did have quite a bit of trouble with the locks not working properly, and at one point, were locked out of the house for over 45 minutes, while we waited for maintenance to come with a key to let us in, as the coded lock device would not open the deadbolt. Leaving a key in the combo lockbox would be helpful in the instances where the mechanics fail. The yard is fully fenced and safe for pets. The house needs some underpinning so that animals and small children won\'t be tempted to go under the house, though. Just keep an eye on them and they\'ll be fine! Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would stay again. The house itself is very enjoyable.
