Great place to stay
The house was clean and comfortable. The only issue we had was there wasn’t enough trash bags but it wasn’t a big deal to go grab some since we weren’t far from wal mart! We enjoyed our stay!
Great Christmas Retreat!
We live in a small apartment and had family coming for Christmas- voila! What a great place for the family to stay (we had more family about 5 miles away). This worked great for us- amenities were just as promised, access to highways/shopping was perfect, and our 5-year old granddaughter LOVED the fireplace!
Would highly recommend this location for anyone wanting to access the DFW area! Well maintained house in a quiet neighborhood location. Thanks!
Great Family Home for Extended-Stay Business Trip!
My family and I stayed here for about 5 weeks while on a business trip in Fort Worth. It was the perfect place to let the family spread out and have some space, rather than being cooped up in a hotel room. We also enjoyed the convenience to the new Kroger Marketplace shopping center for groceries. Gina, the hostess, was very easy to communicate with, and she went over and above to accommodate us and our unique needs. If you're looking for a clean, spacious, and comfortable alternative to a hotel room, this home would be a great choice!
Lovely place, but many shortcomings. Not how I would do business.
This place is lovely and spacious, but disappointed us in many ways. And let me preface the rest of this review by saying that, as an easy-to-please non-complainer, I almost always leave glowing reviews.
Shortly after we arrived, I pulled back the bedcovers in the master bedroom to replace the pillows with our own pillows we brought. I was shocked and rather disgusted to find food crumbs and pubic hair in the bed, indicating that the sheets hadn't been changed from the last guest. It was 4th of July week, and we knew it would be next to impossible to find a different place, so I stripped the bed and washed the sheets, which no one ever expects they will have to do upon arrival.
While the sheets were washing, I read the "rule book" that was left on the coffee table. I learned that it was not an oversight, but intentional, that the owners' regular practice is to leave only a "starter" amount of toilet paper, paper towels, laundry and dish detergent, etc. We were blown away that someone would rent a place and expect full payment for 7 days, but not provide basic necessities (NOT LUXURIES) for 7 days. Not even the crappiest, most run-down motels fail to provide basic necessities for the number of days rented.
As I continued to read, I learned that the hosts expect their guests to do a certain amount of cleaning themselves, such as stripping beds and washing towels, washing up all the dishes before they leave, etc. The place looks clean upon first entering, but then I noticed things like dirty baseboards and filthy corners in the bathrooms, boogers on the walls, a brown slimy buildup of gunk around the bathroom faucets, and dead spiders along baseboards from sloppy vacuuming.
If we had been free guests, or if this was a highly discounted property, I wouldn't have an issue with the way guests are expected to provide their own toilet paper, wash the sheets and towels, etc. But this was priced fairly high, plus they added on all these extra non-refundable fees (like "Administrative" fee), that nearly doubled the main listed price. I know that all listing have added fees, but these were really high, and for what was charged, at least the sheets should have been changed and we shouldn't have to go out and buy toilet paper. Some hosts provide lots of amenities, and these hosts were surprisingly stingy. I guess it's the other hosts that get great ratings and repeat business. Perhaps the hosts will reconsider their business practices.
David, we're sorry to hear certain aspects of your stay fell short. Cleanliness is of the utmost importance and we can confirm it is standard procedure to replace the beds with clean linens before every stay. Nonetheless, the homeowner will address your concerns with their trusted cleaning company to ensure it doesn't recur for future guests. The home is stocked with a starter set of essentials, which is standard for vacation rentals. It's also standard to ask guests to complete simple tasks prior to check-out as this greatly help streamline the cleaning process for the next guests checking in. The service fee is dictated by Vrbo and HomeAway, but we apologize if you felt it was too high. We appreciate you sharing your feedback and we are confident future guests will have exceptional stays! Best, the Evolve Team
House in Ft Worth
Was a great neighborhood and nice house. Was close to the stockyards and anything else you need.
Nice clean house
the only thing I didn't like was the thermostat would default to 60 degrees at some point in the night and we would wake up to a very cold house.
James, the owner wanted to respond with the following message:
"Dear James, thanks for taking the time to give your feedback. While we wish you had a better stay, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. We work hard to provide an excellent customer experience. We would be more than happy to receive a phone call should there be an issue so we could have promptly sent our technician. It is our commitment to ensuring that all our guests have an enjoyable experience so we can always rectify any issue during their stay. It's actually a brand new HVAC unit that was just installed a few months ago. It's a surprise to hear that there's an issue on temperature control. We apologize for the inconvenience that you had and sorry to hear that you were less than satisfied. Please rest assured that this issue has been addressed.
We value our guests' opinions and would like to thank you for bringing this to our attention. Kind regards, Gina"
