- We were a large group of 8 adults and 5 children. The house accommodated all of us beautifully. The grounds were well kept and the pool was great fun, although a little cloudy because the bag on the mechanism that cleans the bottom of the pool would get full of plaster that is chipping on the bottom and would be too heavy to continue doing it's job. We had to clean it out at least 3 times. Or maybe not enough chlorine being used? Starting with the first night through the fourth night a stomach bug passed through the majority of the group, sparing only 4 children an 2 adults. We thought it was very strange because we came from different parts of the country and did not all eat the same thing after we arrived. We felt it was wise to reclean all surfaces and doorknobs throughout the house. Since the house was closed up when we arrived and there was no smell of bleach, I have to wonder if they use bleach regularly when they clean the house. I'm not so sure I would recommend renting a house to my friends.

Comment by Owner/Manager:
We are terribly sorry that you all got sick. The house was empty for about a week before your stay. It was cleaned right after the last guest and I had the ladies go over there the morning of your arrival to make sure that all was still in order to accommodate your early arrival. The laundry is done professionally by a commercial laundry company to make sure it is sanitized. We also have someone check all of our workers to make sure it is done accordingly. Is it possible that perhaps the illness was contracted on the flights? At any rate, had you called we would have had the ladies go over and re-clean for you just to make sure. The same with the pool. The chips in the bag are actually in there to weigh the pool cleaner down a bit. I will have our pool guy recheck the pool again and would have been happy to send him out while you were there. We try to make sure everything is in order and we don't know if something goes wrong unless we or our handyman is notified. I wish you had a better time while you were there. I hope you all are feeling better now.
