Very nice house with beautiful garden yard. Flowers fully blossom when we came. Inside, the public space is larger than we think, very cozy. The house is clean and tidy. Every thing is just as described. And the owner is vey nice and would like to help when we have problems. Highly recommend!
I gave the experience 3/5 stars. I would have given less stars, but Xiaoping was very attentive and open for communication. He was cooperative and tried his best to be helpful. The reason why my experience was unpleasant was because upon check-in, we noticed that there was another section of the house that was partitioned by a sliding wooden board (much like those from closet doors). The Airbnb listing did not mention that there was an attached section that was barely separated by a piece of wood. I contacted Xiaoping immediately, wondering what that secret part of the house was for. He told me that he and others are living in that part of the house. My group and I were not comfortable with the idea of sharing the same living space with complete strangers, for safety and privacy reasons that have arisen from previous experiences. We ended up having to scramble to find another place last minute to stay for the night; which was incredibly stressful. We were disappointed that this had to happen. This detail should have been clearly stated on the posting from the beginning. No one should feel obligated to stay at a place that provided false pretenses of privacy. Thankfully, Xiaoping understood the circumstances and offered a refund.
The home was in good condition and clean. The owners are very nice and responsive. They supplied additional dishes and other items when we requested. The water heater went out, but they had it repaired the next day. The location was great for us. We would stay here again.
There was an incident for this rental that I would like to share with everyone. The house from the outside looks great and with the nice fence surrounding the house, but my original plan was to rent 2 nights and spend 2 nights at South Lake Tahoe and come back to stay the final night then catch the flight out next morning. About 10 days before our check in date and received an email from the host and he needs to cancel our reservation due to internal renovation going on and can't finish on time. So, I was scrambling to look for another place for our stay, we were lucky to found the first two nights replacement but couldn't find the final night due to time limitation. The host could let us stay in his house the final night which I assumed the renovation will be done and promised by the host. On the check in day I reminded the host to provide us the check in Information and we got it that morning and that was acceptable. The host has indicated the check in time is 3:00pm and that was fine with us. When we got to the place at 5:00 pm which is two hours after what we supposed to check in, we saw a couple of construction workers still working at the back of the house with two-sliding board separate from the kitchen area. That made us uncomfortable with the circumstances and contact our host and received couple non-friendly responses, One was, they need to stay to work on whatever they were working on and if not, we wouldn't be able to have electricity that night. Secondly, we are renting the three rooms only from him and it will be safe and he is staying at the back. The point was we have spent more than 6 hours on the road and tired and with some strangers working and hammering on the wall and talking loud next to the sliding door. That was so unprofessional and those workers stayed till 7:15 pm and I couldn't go to dinner because they have access to the house through the sliding door. We have noticed the house covered with dust everywhere and smell cigarettes smoking everywhere throughout the house. We end up dusting the table and some area and end up staying inside the room the whole time. The dust is probably from the construction area and the smell from the construction workers from backside of the room. That made us unhappy and blew the whole trip of our vacation to the Bay Area.
