A group of good friends stayed the weekend in this beautiful home for a girls retreat. It was comfortable for our group of 10, and provided all the amenities that we needed for a wonderful time. Many of us enjoyed the Jacuzzi, and the peaceful, private setting in nature was perfe…

This was a great place to stay. We visited Galena on st Patricks day 2018 with 5 women. The town was busy with visitors. The shopping and restaurants were nice. There was a town parade. The house was spacious and comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the wood burning fireplace. Ther…

Response from Stephen:
Unfortunatley, we are not a hotel. We can not offer a later check-out time for free due to logistic related to services used for the home. The fee simply covers the hourly cost of the home and extras our guests are entitled to during their stay. As for the trash, we have no control over this, this is the same for everyone within the territory not just our home. And check-in time throughout the territory is also standard at 4 PM for most businesses that offer rentals in the are, with a few minor exceptions for some businesses. What you are paying for as with a hotel or any other accommodation is the nightly use of the home not a 24hr period.

The home was beautiful, very clean and was a very great stay. Steven was very helpful with everything I needed and asked for. The only thing I suggest is that there be a dumpster in the vicinity or private garbage cans to wheel down to the curb. The garbage facility we have to ta…

I had high expectations for this airbnb and I was disappointed. Stephen was a terrible host. Leading up to our stay, any questions that we sent him required at least two emails or an email and phone call to get a response. On the day of our check-in, Stephen provided no informati…

My son was indisposed for the holiday weekend. It was a holiday for some. The cameras are for the protection of our property as well as for our guests and only monitor the outside of the home . Have you looked around hotels, Walmart Parking lots, or any other businesses lately. I informed your spouse when I called at 4:30 on Friday that I was in the immediate area and was available if anything was wrong. If I had stopped by the house to check you probably would have complained that was intrusive as well. We pride ourselves and our properties as well appointed. We give clear instructions in our user guide and contracts to print them so you have your access code for entry ,Wifi passwords and emergency contact information. Oh, by your own admission you didn't print it or bring it with you. If I had mailed you a physical key and you left it at home would I be blamed for preventing you access? The home you stayed in was a 4 bedroom 4. 5 bathroom 2500 square foot home. Do you think it cleans itself, changes the linens, vacuums,washes the bathrooms and showers, cleans the dishes and the kitchen? Or maybe you don't think the cleaning service is entitled to be paid to clean up after "Your" stay. There is no refuse service in The Galena Territories. If the trash were left in the home for 24-48 hours depending on circumstances the potential odor would effect the home. We have had numerous guests who have rated our service and our homes exceptionally. We hope you were in a better mood for the celebration you attended in Galena. Joe Halm, Stephen's father
