We had a terrific stay here. The location makes it easy to walk to downtown as well as hiking (Cactus to Clouds/Museum/Lykken Trails). The house is also very private, despite actually being quite close to other houses. We loved the pool and spa, and generally the home is well furnished and given we did a lot of cooking, a good kitchen to work in (two kitchens, in fact, if need be). Also, I had pretty good feelings toward Vacasa that they really wanted to ensure our stay was positive (once we got their attention, talking to people in various parts of the country... all very nice people, occasionally short on follow through).

Arriving after dark was challenging. The lock box for the key was described as being to the right of the front door. Well... yes.... but 20 feet to the right around a bay window at ground level was challenging to find in the dark. And the front door is a bit tricky to unlock.

Next up: the pool/spa controls are rather inconveniently located behind blinds in the family room (another search expedition). Once located, pretty easy to work (except you need to be conscious of it being on a timer if you want the spa heated at a specific time). There were no instructions in the house manual (really beyond WiFi/password, which was changed while we were there... we left a sticky note). We receive a “gate” code but apparently the gate across the drive is unopenable... we never did find a place to input a code... not a big deal... just moved cars around the corner to unpack and pack up. There is ample parking space off the street.

The WiFi was wonky, making it impossible to work while there (a problem), but the management company came through with a new router (thank you!). Muuuuch better and very much appreciated.

The house has great bones. It is tired in places. The bathrooms need attention (someone painted the tile and even the sinks(??) with associated chipping/wear). The kitchen has issues with cabinet doors that are loose and fall off (loose European hinges). One cabinet door stays open.

In all, it was a positive experience and we enjoyed our stay. You could easily have 6 people there with a reasonable amount of privacy.

I would stay here again. And, again, I felt Vacasa went to some pains to ensure we were satisfied.

Manager response:
Hi, Gary! We are so glad your stay ended up being a positive experience, and we are so appreciative of you giving us an opportunity to assist you during your visit. We are updating our guest notes to be more specific, and we will be assessing all of the cabinet hinges. Thank you!

Awesome location and the home was very spacious with a beautiful pool and hot tub. The bathrooms do require some improvements but otherwise a great value.
