Diana, thank you for taking the time to leave this review - we hope you enjoyed your stay and got to take advantage of the (many) great restaurant options around town! Hope to have you back, -Amy with iTrip
Hi Angelika, Thanks for taking the time to leave this review. Glad that you enjoyed the place and hope you got to check out some good bands while in town. Thanks again, -Amy with iTrip
Tim, Thank you for the review. As we discussed on a few different occasions prior to your arrival, each of our guests has two options at time of booking - the Property Damage Waiver (non-refundable), or the refundable security deposit. The policy is communicated in the rental agreement, which was accepted at time of booking, that all monies (Payment in Full) is due 30 days prior to arrival. We are sorry that having to pay a refundable security deposit 30 days prior to arrival has resulted in this 2-star review. The listing does state that the TVs in the unit are 'smart' TVs and offer streaming, so yes, you are correct - in order to access local programming, you'd need to have a subscription to one of the apps (YouTube offers live TV). We have not received any other comments about signage being blocked by gutters so thank you for mentioning this - we will certainly get maintenance out to address. Again, it's unfortunately that the security deposit is the primary reason for this 2-star review, but we do understand your frustration. Thanks for the feedback, -Amy with iTrip
Hi Sondra, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review - we do appreciate the feedback. As your review indicates, there have been a few issues with the lock / code that was in place for your stay, as well as the vertical blinds - I am happy to report that both have been resolved! We will certainly pass on the recommendations regarding the additional mirror to the owner for consideration, so again thank you for that feedback. We hope you enjoyed your stay and will come back in the future. Thank you for being such great house guests! -Amy with iTrip
