Our check-in was easy and the house was easy to find. Once we settled in we noticed ants crawling around on the kitchen counters and floor. We cleaned the counters and floors with cleaning products we found there however the flow of ants just popped up elsewhere in the house. The trail of ants into the house is constant. We left no food or trash anywhere in the house at all times and despite that they were around. We informed the host and he told us to put out ant baits and that this was an issue due to the neighbors. Additionally, spiders were another issue as we were bit almost everyday while in bed or sitting about. My children where both bit in bed by spiders we later found crawling around the beds in the bedrooms. I told the host that this house needs a good pest control treatment by a professional and the landscaping around the house needs to be better managed as there were cobwebs on every hedge and plant along the perimeter of the house. He disagreed. We did take it upon ourselves to use many cans of ant and spider sprays and several baits. The results took and day or two but we did get some relief during our stay. The house is old and dirty, the furniture is old, the futon mattress in uncomfortable to sit on and the futon cover needs to be cleaned. The master bed mattress is much too soft causing back pain and discomfort. The other two beds are fine. The bathtub doesn't have a shower overhead and we had to pull the shower over the stall onto the bathtub to rinse the kids off during bathing. The outdoor area isn't usable due to the ants and low flying bees, which the host said was good for the flowers and plants...But not good for peace of mind sitting outside and specially with kids playing!!! The space, parking and location of the house is good. The linens and towels provided are abundant and clean. The washer and dryer by the kitchen is modern and convenient. The basic amenities and cleaning products are provided. Proximity to stores, restaurants, coffee shops and farmers market is easy and convenient, by foot or car. John's personality and style of communication changes from daytime style to nighttime style. I do have to mention that after a month long stay, we did ask John to be released of the remainder of the reservation when our home was ready to move into. And he agreed, understanding our circumstance. And we appreciate that! Overall, our stay was okay and it fulfilled our immediate needs given our circumstance at that time.
