The above review was NOT our experience in the same property. With the exception of the carpet being worn in the main room we loved the house!

Argh! Thanks for your responses.

I remember looking at this specific group of houses for a previous trip and we didn't go with them because of some poor reviews on the DisBoard and other sites.

However, recently, I've been looking around and have noticed great feedback from other Dis'ers. So, I thought we would research them again and see what changes have been made. Turns out I learned they switched managment companies and things SEEM to be much better.

But, alas...I worry after reading the TA review. My kids would go nuts for this place. The pictures are just amazing. But, it is so hard selecting a place when there is such a variance of experiences.

I very much appreciate your feedback and speedy replies.

Have a great day!

It may not have been your experience, but it is the experience of others. Several people have mentioned the problem with pool heat, and nobody is getting refunded for heat they paid for. That would be an issue for me. What is important to some may not be an issue for others. I take into account all of the reviews before choosing a rental.

Absolutely. I wasnt intending to say anyone was lying just that it was not our experience staying the same month as that poster. It surprised me greatly that is all.

I understand. Awhile back I rented a townhouse and, while it wasn't absolutely perfect, I really liked it. A week or two later another poster rented the same house and had a completely different experience. it was hard to believe we had rented the same townhouse.
