Lovely lake weekend.
We loved our lake weekend at this place! We will be back.
Our family had a wonderful get together and the home was perfect for what we needed. Great location and the owner was very accommodating.
Most awful experience
Terrible terrible vacation!!!! Complete waste of a few thousand dollars - Check in was at 3 pm & property Mgr gave me no type of check in info & we sat on the front porch in 90 degree weather for almost 2 hours after multiple attempts to get in touch with Barrett Oakley as well as VRBO customer service as well as his office with no luck only to wait 2 hours to get the lock box code after hundreds of dollars worth of our groceries ruined from my family sitting in the heat locked out. We almost had to drive 5 hours back to our home.
We also left 2 days early due to the rental being filthy there is animal hair & bugs all over the furniture to the point we were bitten so much we had to leave the property early. There were no towels in the bathrooms & food still dried all over the dishes in the cabinets.
Would have been a good home to stay in had it been cleaned properly & had the manager provided check in information. We have also contacted the manager about a refund & he refuses to answer so we will be seeking further action.
First of all, we regret this avoidable situation ever happened.
As previously discussed with the guest, upon the moment of your arrival, the owner was traveling back home from a work trip when the plane didn't have WIFI connectivity, therefore he was unreachable for a short period of time.
For reasons such as these, we have a policy, clearly stated in the hospitality portion of our VRBO instructions (this was confirmed by VRBO staff yesterday), that guests are to text the owner the day Before the day of their check-in for the updated lockbox code, which is passed along from the cleaning staff after they clean the home. If the clearly outlined check-in procedures had been followed, this situation could've been avoided.
Cleanliness of the home: The cleaning staff confirmed that our home was cleaned thoroughly before you arrived, just like it always is. Evidence of our home's cleanliness/history with previous guests speaks for itself. Additionally, we have shared your comments with the cleaning staff and they have done an additional "deep clean" on the aforementioned areas of the home, just to be safe.
To be clear, we are not holding ill will against you/your family, as this situation should've been avoided by following the protocol clearly outlined in the check-in/hospitality/rental instructions.
Perfect as pictured!
I LOVE this place! Our daughter had Iron Bowl tickets so we brought Thanksgiving to her and we could not have picked a more perfect place so celebrate. From coffee on the deck to fishing off the dock, this house had everything we were looking for. Perfect tucked away location but still not too far if you forgot something. Already planning the return trip!
We loved reading this and can't wait for you all to return!
The house and location were perfect!! On a big cove with little traffic and gorgeous views of the sunset!! We loved the screen porch and the swim dock too! Owner was very accommodating as well!
