About Denise Steele
Hello, I am an author and painter. I recently published my first historical fiction adventure called The Mystery of the Magna Carta, which has interactive apps! I paint in a soft realistic style favoring dancers and the early Jazz era.
Denise Steele purchased this House in 1990
Why Denise Steele chose Southeast Eugene
As soon as I walked into Le Petit Louvre, I was cheered by its many windows, hardwood floors and vintage architecture. Since purchasing LPL I have added many touches to bring out its character and renovate its beauty. I especially love the huge wisteria that cools the porch in the summer and provides privacy from the street! For many years it was my home and art studioI, so I named it "Le Petit Louvre" after a gallery in Sweden I showed at. I have created many favorite paintings here - I hope you will love being here as much as I have.
What makes this House unique
Le Petit Louvre is vintage-cozy, with a light, cheery feel from all the windows that surround it, as well as the fireplace, hard wood floors, clawfoot tub, and glass door knobs. Also I love its location - easy access to everywhere.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Denise was awesome! LPL was awesome! Such a great stay!
It's a wonderful property located close to everything we needed to see and do. The shower could use a bit more water pressure but it worked.
I would rent it again.
Great spot, beautiful home!
Met our needs.
Would have been nice to have a packet of coffee or tea supplied upon arrival.
As an adult paying for the cleaning service, there seemed to be too many cleaning rules to get the deposit and to really relax. Worrying about what to do and not to do.
I really like Denise’s restaurant information.
Two weeks seems a stretch to get the damage deposit back.
Dear Cynthia, I'm surprised at your review - I always receive rave reviews! We are not a bed and breakfast so there is no food supplied. This is one of the reasons LPL is so reasonably priced. Plus there are different legal rules for bed and breakfast venues and VRBO's regarding food. This is why folks bring their own food or shop for their desired items.
I'm also very surprised at your comment on "too many cleaning rules. There are house rules, like "please do not cut on the counters, and do not drive your car on the lawn" all of which has happened - so unfortunately, these things have to be mentioned. I try to address the house rules with humor and I explain that people have done these things in the past - so I cannot depend on the common sense rule ; )
I have been renting my home as a rental for over 12 years and there are actually very few cleaning/check-out requests. Since I have never had this comment before, I wonder if you are new to the world of renting a VRBO. It is a legal contract and people do have to care for the home. Also if there are any concerns, I am available 24/7 for a conversation to put you at ease.
Finally as stated in the contract with VRBO, and in my communication with you - VRBO collects and returns the security deposit two weeks after departure. Since you have contacted me twice about this concern, I can see that this a problem for you. However, I cannot change this part of the agreement. VRBO needs two weeks to be able to give me time in case there are damages, and then they need time to process the refund. I think two weeks is reasonable considering all that must be accounted for. I am sorry it has been bothersome for you, I hope your next rental experience is wonderful. Kindest regards, Denise
