I feel bad leaving a less-than-enthusiastic review, but I think it's important guest know what they are getting into here.
First, the beds were incorrectly listed as queen-sized in the listing (as of August 2017). They are definitely full beds, which are 6 inches narrower than queens.
Second, the internet is pretty slow / weak (which is a bigger deal than normal, as at least AT&T cell phones don't have coverage in the home.) I don't think there's actually even an access point in the home-- I think the access point is next door in the host's home. You can try moving to that side of the house to coverage.
Third, and perhaps most importantly, I just didn't feel welcome in the home.
Perhaps Bryan and Richard were on edge as they explained they'd recently gotten into an AirBnb dispute with their last guests for some reason, but they spent a huge amount of time going through all their rules. I felt like if they are so worried about wear and tear on their "custom furniture," then they really shouldn't be AirBnb hosts.
Even when booking via AirBnb, they make you sign a 7-page legal contract, with rules like:
- "Rearranging of furniture is not permitted. Rearranging of any furniture (other than chairs, which we know you will move to sit in), will result in a minimum of $50 fee or more depending on extent of re-arrangement."
- "15. TENANTS MUST PROVIDE PAPER GOODS, INCLUDING TOILET PAPER. Bathrooms are provided with at least one roll of toilet paper each for your initial check-in convenience."
- "Do not attempt to connect any videogames, computers, or other electronic equipment to the TVs, networking equipment, or other Appliance. Any repair work, re-wiring, settings reset, or reprogramming will result in a $50 charge to the Tenant."
I had this constant feeling like we were being monitored. They have a motion detector in front of the house that rings an alarm in their house anytime you enter or leave the home. We didn't feel like we had any privacy and it just felt creepy.
If you're okay with these issues, the unit itself is nice, but there are definitely more welcoming / lower stress options in the area.
