    What a wonderful casita and neighborhood! Wild horses and deer roaming around, mountain views, snow, wonderful. My daughter and I were very comfortable. Really nice to have the washer and dryer. Plenty of parking space for all. Kitchen had everything we needed. I brought a twin size blow up mattress and we had plenty of room for that. Used the fireplace, large mounted TV, drank coffee out on the lovely wrap around porch. There were people staying in the other half of the house and we hardly heard them. The owner was very nice and helpful. Totally planning on using the casita again! Thanks for a wonderful visit. Vickie V.

    This place has washer and dryer which is good, but cookwares are all wore out. You can see the pans have lots of scratches. I still don't understand why we pay for clean fee and we still have to handwash dishes and throw away trash....?

    Manager's Response:
    Yu-jing, we hope you had an enjoyable stay overall! The homeowner was unaware that the cookware was worn, they appreciate you bringing this issue to their attention so that they can replace the worn items. The cleaning fee is to cover for the cleaning after every stay which includes washing all of the linens and towels, sweeping and mopping the entire unit, cleaning of the bathroom, dirty dishes and much more. All guests are required to take their trash to the solid waste disposal site, and directions are given in the welcome folder. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again! Best, the Evolve Team

    This place was great the only negative i would say is that it needs to be sprayed for spiders we killed like 4 or 5 while we were there! Another note we could not get the fire place to light at all. Other then that it was great little getaway.

    It was a good stay overall, apartment is comfortable and well equipped. Located in a nice quiet area. There were a couple of small inconveniences but were resolved quickly. First, the key pad of the entrance door did not work upon arrival so we were provided with an actual key to use during the stay and second a breaker was blown probably because of an overload of the electrical circuit so we were without power for about half hour. Response from administrator was pretty efficient.

    Awful Rest

    Reviewed by: eric w. on


    The place was really cute in a tucked away area of town. However, when we arrived the smell of gas was overwhelming, most likely coming from the fireplace. About 2 hours after check in, the problem was finally taken care of by turning off the gas to the fireplace (never was able to use). But the worst problem of all was the bed. It was probably the worst sleep we ever got during a vacation. The bed, and the frame for that matter, had to very old. Frame squeaked every time we moved and the bed was very uncomfortable. The heater over the bed wasn't placed well either as it blew on our faces all night long. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this place for a visit. Definitely disappointed.

    Manager's Response: Hi Eric, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that your stay fell short of expectations! Due to strong winds the night before, the pilot light for the fireplace had blown out. While the homeowner was able to get his local maintenance contact to take a look that day, he was unable to find a specialist to confirm and resolve the issue until after the holiday weekend. The homeowner would like to convey his apologies that you were not able to enjoy the fireplace during your trip, and that this negatively impacted your entire stay at his home. The mattress is new, but the homeowner tightened the bed frame to ensure that future guests are as comfortable as possible. Thank you again for letting us know about stay, and we hope to assist you again in booking a vacation rental that will exceed your expectations! Best, the Evolve Team
