We were a group of 7 40-something women who stayed for the weekend to celebrate our best friend's upcoming wedding. We were so excited to stay at the house and when we arrived, we were blown away by how cute it was and the character the home had. Honestly, we had a great time the whole weekend. We are a group of professional women that rented the house to enjoy each other's company, relax, drink wine and celebrate our best friend getting married. The owner was very adamant about no smoking on the property, which is completely understandable. Unfortunately, I had arrived about an hour after the others did and one of the guests was sitting out in the driveway smoking a cigarette on the back of her truck. As soon as I saw her, I told her of the rules and she never smoked again. Incidentally, the smoker didn't even stay the night and was at the house for about 4 hours total. Aside from her, none of us are smokers and would NEVER allow smoking around us and especially in the house. So, when I checked my email on Monday morning after our getaway, I was shocked to receive a very disturbing, abusive and accusatory email from the owner stating that we stole his kitchen scrubber (which he dug through our garbage looking for a $12 scrubber?!?), smoked all over in the house and that if we posted any negative remarks, he would file legal action against us with his companies attorneys. The owner claimed that he had to repaint the whole house and use many bottles of cleaner to remove the stench of smoke from the drapes in the home. We were completely flabbergasted by his claims since no one ever smoked anywhere near the house at any point in time. Also, the "stolen" scrubber was placed in the pull-out tray beneath the kitchen sink. The owner tried to keep our $300 cleaning deposit but luckily, TripAdvisor made the right decision and gave our deposit back. The owner made so many false claims about our stay that it became laughable. Please, think twice before booking your stay here. You have been warned!
Rented this home for a Bachelorette weekend in murphys, and this home was perfect. So many beds, rooms, and enough bathrooms to suit all my guest. Very comfy and cozy with a great balcony to enjoy the veiw. I definitely recommend this place!
