The location was wonderful, but when we arrived 1 week ago the house smelled and was dirty. The customer service was not helpful at all. After sending pictures of the dirty stove, dirty sheets and overall uncleanliness, the Vacasa people refused to move us. I cleaned the whole house and washed every bed and covers.
I will never recommend this house or renting thru Vacasa rentals.
Manager response:
Maria, thank you for your review, we are happy to hear you enjoyed the location of our home. However, we are disappointed to learn that we were unable to provide you with a pleasant stay. We apologize for any issues you encountered during your time with us and any inconvenience caused to you and your party. Please know that the comfort and satisfaction of our guests is our priority, and we have discussed your concerns with our local housekeeping staff to ensure our cleanliness and service standards are continuously met. Additionally, we regret that we were unable to fulfill your request for relocation, as the alternative home's available were not a suitable replacement on short notice for the capacity of your overall party. We appreciate your understanding during these unforeseen circumstances, and hope you will give us a second chance to better serve you on a future stay!

We had a lovely time in a beautiful space. It quickly felt like our own and we grieved when we had to leave. I cooked all of our meals and the kitchen had everything I needed. The view was gorgeous and I loved drinking my morning coffee and gazing out at the trees and lake. The neighborhood was perfect for taking walks and we occassionally met friendly neighbors out doing the same. We would love to return sometime.
