Best Little Pool House in the Smokies
5.0/5 stars
My wife and I are not strangers to vacation rentals. As such, I always know to expect less than what the pictures and the description lead me to believe. The pictures will always show a secluded, private cabin, which is never true, and phrases like "Sleeps 10" really means 4 unless you start stacking children. Perhaps it's because my expectations were low, or maybe it's just that good, but this place blew away my every expectation. First of all, while there are 2 cabins adjacent to this one, there is definitely plenty of privacy, particularly in sensitive areas such as the pool. The large windows and door in the pool room offer great views, but at the same time you would have to be standing on an adjacent hillside with a telescope to see in. The one thing that could have been better is the window coverings in the rest of the cabin. The kitchen, and 2 of the main floor balcony doors are completely uncovered. This wasn't that big of a deal, but one of the uncovered windows, and one of the uncovered doors directly faced the neighboring cabins. Fortunately, there were only 2 nights out of our entire stay that one of the 2 adjacent cabins were occupied. This cabin also busted another one of my expectations: space. There is plenty of space. I was pleasantly surprised. The 2 queen bedrooms are huge. Plenty of room to walk around the bed and then some. Also, both of these rooms are equipped with nicely appointed bathrooms and whirlpool tubs, and each having their own TV and satellite receiver. Outside of that, there are 2 nooks on the same floor, one with a couch, TV, and Wii console, the other with some books and a convertible sofa. The King bedroom is also well appointed, with slightly less space than the other two, but still perfectly comfortable. It too has a well appointed bathroom en suite. One of the biggest bonuses that we found is that there is a washer and dryer! I haven't seen this in any of the descriptions that I've read of this property, but this definitely made the stay a lot more comfortable for us. The pool and the hot tub were fantastic, as was the view from the hot tub. Going up to the eagles nest and watching the sunrise from the hot tub, drinking a cup of coffee was one of my favorite things to do. The pool was probably the #1 attraction for us. We have 3 children under 3 years old, so this was the best way to keep almost everyone entertained. I've read that other reviewers have said that the pool is not heated, however, I wouldn't have noticed. The temperature was perfectly comfortable for our entire stay. Another family favorite was the theater room. The room was well equipped for family movie night, and it also had a dish receiver (if you could figure out the correct combination of the 6+ remote controls). It was a great place to turn on a cartoon and let the kids play for a bit. The kitchen was wonderfully appointed and had nearly everything we needed. The only things we had to pick up were some coffee filters, stretch wrap, and ziploc bags (which we left behind for the next visitors to use). We were surprised to find some not so common amenities, such as a slow cooker and blender. The rest of the cabin had some nice appointments as well, such as TONS of extra blankets and pillows, a vacuum, an ironing board, and we even found a baby gate! This was perfect! This is the point in the review in which I would normally rate the experience we had with the staff, however, I cannot. I did not have a single interaction with the staff for our entire stay. Don't get me wrong, this is a good thing. My wife did call once before we arrived to ask a few questions, and I did find out after we got home that the property manager sent me a welcome email, but I chose to have my email turned off for the entire trip. We had plenty of contact information if we needed it, and I have every reason to believe that they would have been attentive to our needs, but we didn't need it. It was downright refreshing not to be bothered. The only negative thing I have to say about this rental, is that it could use some attention to some of the details, such as the window coverings. There were also some cracked or chipped tiles in the kitchen that we tried to avoid. Also, I was a bit put off by the fact that I was offered a Starbucks gift card to give them a 5 star review on another website (I chose not to review them on the other website for this reason). People like me depend on these reviews being honest to make sure their vacations are well spent. All in all though, these things were very minor, and did not distract from the relaxing stay that we all enjoyed. Ultimately, I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who can afford to rent a cabin in the mountains. This will be remembered by my family as one of the most fun and relaxing vacations we've ever had.
Polynesian Shores One Bedroom / One Bath - Unit 102
5.0/5 stars
Aloha from Maryland! I had an absolutely wonderful experience at the Polynesian shores beachfront community. I unfortunately had difficulties with another rental and had to immediately cancel it the day following my arrival to Maui. Leanna was super accommodating and exceeded expectations in helping me find this gem. My partner and I woke up to an ocean view of the sunrise each morning and the Polynesian shore ohana watched the sunset together each evening. I would recommend staying there to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of resorts, with the opportunity to experience the true beauty of Hawaii.
