HOW WE MONITOR OUR CONDOS          

First, we have noise monitoring devices setup in each condo that will alert us to loud music or a loud party. We will then act accordingly with the local authorities. Some even have devices that monitor the temperature, mold, and how many cell phones are in the unit.

Second, we have Ring or Blink cameras outside the condo, and we will know how many have entered or if you bring a pet etc. We also use them to monitor the hot tub covers (if provided), the weather, and wildlife. There are no video or still cameras inside the rental.

TOILETS

Do not flush anything but toilet paper down the toilet. The flushing of paper towels or feminine products will cause an expensive backup of the $30,000 septic system and you don’t want to have to pay for this.

Very nice place. The house is cozy and spacious and there is plenty of room in the backyard. A little confusing to get the house if you just use GPS, so try to rely on Gerald's directions. The host is very easy to reach and everything went smoothly with our stay.

House was nice but the shrubs by pool were overgrown and the deck needs to be weather treated and painted.
Dryer wouldn’t turn on kept saying check filter but the filter was clean so we couldn’t use it after to dry towels after getting out the pool.
Living room tv turns of randomly so only one working tv in the whole house.
Downstairs has a humidifier but the basement still smells like mildew or water damage.
Host waited until day of rental to advise that you cannot use the diving board or jump in the pool. They sent excessive emails prior to rental. It all could have been said in one email and I could have signed off on that instead of the 10-15 emails we received.

Other than those things the place
inside is nice & cozy. We made a fire every night of our stay and enjoyed relaxing in the outside area.

Had a great time with the family, home was beautiful and very clean. Very spacious and accommodating. The neighborhood is very quiet so keep in mind even during the day time music by the pool or loud talking from friends unfortunately bother the neighbors. Otherwise don’t have any complaints.

We were absolutely delighted to find Gerald’s property and enjoyed our stay immensely. We own a summer home nearby that needed to be opened for the season and Gerald’s home provided the perfect respite. The house is immaculate and well stocked, the hot tub is heavenly and clean, the furniture and beds are super comfy, and everything worked the way it should. We hope to book again for next summer!
