Adrew was an excellent guest and left the property in very good condition. I would rent to him again and recommend him to others. However, I disagree with his assessment and his opinion that older structures should simply be torn down. When the pressures to tear down and rebuild win, folks such as Andrew will have no where to go when they need exactly this type of accommodation that welcomes dogs and is so reasonably priced that a neighbor can rent the property while doing maintenance on their own home. If this cabin is torn down, a concrete gated duplex will replace it. Each unit of the duplex will sell for $800,000 and will no longer be available to middle class residents such as Andrew. It will be both an aesthetic and economic loss, in my opinion. To answer Andrew's specific complaints: there are no longer my parked (not abandoned) cars in the gated yard; the pilot light on the stove is now repaired (but I still recommend turning gas off at the main valve); the front door jam has been replaced and there is no longer a 'gap'. There is no TV and that's how I prefer it. There is internet and a really high quality audiophile system. Most folks that rent from me like audio and like streaming from their computers. Bottom line...this is a 100 year old cabin. I love it and continue loving it for over ten years now. Other people either love it or not. I'll continue to improve it and keep it fairly priced as the prices rise around the Grove. And I continue welcoming animals and audiophiles. Those seeking a brand new antiseptic experience should look elsewhere.

Unfair review. My check-in time is 4PM. I reminded Lore Trevino of this multiple times prior to arrival and it is clearly stated in the listing. Lore arrived 2 hours early and interrupted my cleaning. I do the cleaning myself and do a thorough job. One must keep in mind that this is a 100 year old structure and that it is a great value at the asking rate/price. When Lore arrived two hours early by cab, I made the decision to not send them away and make them return after 4PM as a favor to them. But their disregard for my need to clean meant that I had to do my work in 30 minutes with them in the cabin hovering rather than my usual hour and a half to two hour cleaning process. So to fault me for that is frustrating. I've been doing this now for four years and I knew immediately that when they saw the cabin they did not like it. It wasn't fancy enough or luxurious enough and no amount of cleaning can address matters of taste and economics. What they were seeking would have cost them a multiple of at least 6 times above my very reasonable rate for a stand alone house in the Grove. So what guests such as Lore do, is put the onus on me, and bend me over the barrel for a significant loss to me. I would not cater to Lore Trevino in the future. I suggest guests such as Lore find and pay for the more luxurious accommodations they are seeking next time.
