    Great house not management

    Reviewed by: Julie E. on


    The house was great. Loved that there was a highchair and full crib. The Evolve management company wasn't. The company told me they would change my dates and shorten my trip by a day months before our booked dates. Then they charged me an extra night and refused to refund me the full amount because the employee who didn't actually change it no longer worked for them. They told me it was in the contract and I lost 30% of the cost for that night bc I realized they never actually changed it until I was overcharged. The thing that gets me is they told me they saw a note from months before when it was supposed to be changed and was a note instead of changing it??? Thanks for making me pay for your employees mistake and telling me it was in the contract.

    There were bugs in one of the bedrooms, the ceiling fan in the livingroom didn't work but we didn't know that in advance so that was problematic. One of the guests found stains on a towel--not good. We did use box fans for the remainder of our time at the house which helped somewhat but by that time, we were all frustrated. The Orkin man was scheduled to come out one morning at 7:30 and finally showed up around 8:00. That was frustrating as I wasn't planning to do property management on my vacation so coordinating the arrival of the Orkin man was, again, frustrating. We also had trouble operating the TV. Additional instructions would be helpful.

    Manager's Response: Hi Charlene, We are sorry to hear that this property did not meet your expectations. The homeowner is dedicated to the comfort of their guests, and they responded immediately when you reached out with your concerns. They tried to get the exterminator to the house as soon as possible, but you made it clear that you would only allow them to access the property the morning after you spoke to the homeowner. The owner also promptly addressed the other issues you mentioned, and took measures to compensate you for any inconvenience that you may have experienced. We are sorry that this was not a satisfactory resolution for you, and we wish you all the best in your future travels. Best, the Evolve Team

    We rented this home for our family vacation and had such an amazing time. Close to rafting and downtown, the location was perfect. The house is well kept with a large kitchen and cozy living room. We especially loved the fireplace and wrap around porches. The views and fresh mountain air are so relaxing, our family of 6 enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended

    Spacious, Charming Property with Great Location, Amenities

    Reviewed by: Lee R. on


    We spent a week including Christmas at this great home and have nothing but good things to say. The owners of the house were super responsive to the questions that we had and went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. The open layout of the living/dining/kitchen area allowed for our group to hang out with each other, while not technically being the same room. We did quite a bit of cooking and found more than adequate options in terms of pots, pans and utensils. We even used the grill on the deck a couple of times to cook burgers and grilled fish. The deck itself is within viewing distance of the rolling Arkansas river, which is just across the street from the house. The view from there is quite beautiful. The location is super convenient to many attractions. It's a short 10 minute ride into Buena Vista things like a grocery store and a liquor store. We went to the Hot Springs at Mt Princeton one day (20 mins away) and Breckenridge another day (approx 1 hr away). The house exceeded our needs and expectations. We would definitely stay there again if we decide to come to the area again.

    Great house - poor location

    Reviewed by: Robert F. on


    The interior of this house was great. It was clean, in good condition, and comfortable. One complaint was that oven had a broken heating element which made it inoperable for us, but we weren't planning on using it much anyways (I'm sure the owners would have fixed it immediately, but we didn't notify them of it until we were leaving). The exterior, on the other hand, left a little to be desired. The yard was unkept and much smaller than we were expecting. Also, the property abuts a major highway, so even at night we dealt with the noise of traffic. If you're looking for a place to relax outside and soak up the mountains in a quiet setting, this is not the property for you. If you're just using it as a base to get to other locations or spending most of your time indoors (with the windows closed), then you should be happy.

    We loved our stay!! The river is steps off the driveway, great location surrounded by mountain views, beautiful home with lots of extras for kids. It was great to not have to travel with a high chair and pack n play like we usually do! Kids absolutely loved having a playyard. The large back deck was great for morning coffee and nighttime smores. We had everything we could possibly need. Close but not too close to Buena Vista and Salida. Great whirlpool tub as well!! We would definitely stay again!!

    This house is very spacious and accommodated 4 adults and 4 kids perfectly. The kitchen is nice and well appointed. Bedrooms were nice size as well, especially the master. Good location being close to River Runners and Mt Princeton, and a short drive into Buena Vista. We had a small problem with a tv and the owners were very responsive and even checked back the following day.

    We arrived Christmas Day only to find that the electricity had been going on an off most of the day. This area of Colorado was experiencing record breaking winds that had blown down several power lines in the area. The electricity finally went off and stayed that way until the next day. We contacted the owners and they immediately set out to get our electricity restored. Unfortunately it didn't happen and the owners offered to put us up in a hotel for the night, but there was no electricity in neighboring towns either. We made the best of it and was extremely grateful to the owners for their concern for us. The home was very comfortable. The river was just across the street and it was amazing to look out the huge windows and spot Bald Eagles and Elk. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

    Great set up and perfect for our two kids. Felt right at home with all the extra little accomodations. Perfect location being right by the river and so close to the hot springs and town of buena vista. We cannot wait to come back in the summer time to hang out outside on the beautiful porch. Could use a few more towels for guests, but other than that, it was a perfect place to stay:)
