Although the house itself was nice, there were definitely things lacking in this rental. In the description of the home online it was advertised as having a fully equipped kitchen, however it was missing basic items such as a potholders , a baking sheet and any serving dishes. When I contacted the owner regarding this he said he could "get me a pot holder" and if I wanted a baking sheet that I could purchase one down the street. At the conclusion of our visit he charged me $10 for a missing wine glass (we did not break any wine glasses and I have no idea what he was referring to as I did not count anything when I got there and was never informed that I needed to do so and the wine glasses in the apartment couldn't have been more than a $1 at the Dollar Store). We were not provided with any dish soap, dishwasher soap, or any type of cleaning products even though he must've told me 10 times that the house needed to be in "broom clean" condition when we left. The house was advertised as having a grill so we packed most meals to be grilled and the propane ran out in the middle of cooking dinner on third night and when I texted the owner he assured me that he would replace it by mid day but never showed up to do so until after 6pm that evening. The house itself has air conditioning but the two side bedrooms were unbearably hot and we had to purchase fans in order to be comfortable enough to sleep because the owner said we could not turn the air conditioning down below 70 degrees because his pipes would freeze and quite frankly I don't think the fan on the air conditioning was working properly. Another disturbing part of the home is the "party house " next door which had creepy drunk people in and out most of the nights that we were there. The police were repeatedly called (the owner told me to call the police if they got out of hand upon our arrival). A drunk man approached my teenagers and asked if they wanted to smoke pot with him and my daughter and her friend were chased down the street and asked to come to their party by a strange drunk man from next door on one of the nights we were there. So overall, based on the location next to a party house , lack of kitchen supplies and the too warm bedrooms coupled with being nickled and dimed to death (wine glass, potholder, fans and baking sheet), I would not rent this again and would certainly not recommend for anyone with small kids.
We stayed the weekend for the St. Patty's Day parade and despite the cold, we had a great time. The house is located right by the parade route. We loved the open floor plan. The unit is completely new. The bedrooms are big and the 2 full bathrooms are gorgeous. We will definitely book this place again next year.
