    a guest from Nice, California does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Badly managed. It is a beautiful home. When we arrived Friday afternoon, the home had not been cleaned. All beds were slept in and had dirty bedding. Bathrooms and toilets were dirty. Previous tenant ran the dishwasher but kitchen and counters were dirty. Coffee maker was full of used grounds and coffee. The "Emergency" phone numbers both led to answering machines. Several plumbing fixtures were loose or broken. We had family arriving that night and the next day, so we stayed and cleaned, washed linens, and made beds. We left it cleaner than we found it. For our trouble, the cleaning fee of $140 was refunded. Not acceptable. We have rented many properties without this headache. These property managers should find a different line of work.

    peter G from Duncansville, PA recommends this vacation rental

    when we arrived at the Victorian home, we was surprised at the location, thinking when booking that it had more of a ocean scenery. We open the gate to find garbage all over the side patio. When walking in the house it had an odor and large cobwebs that my husband didn't see and walked thru. Needless to say our first impression was upsetting. But my daughter and myself cleaned up the 3 bags of garbage, we opened the windows (there's no locks on the windows) to air out the house, swept the wrap around porch, took down the cobwebs. Then unloaded the cars and started supper. After everyone was settled we walked around the house. We was happily surprised to see that every bedroom had its own bathroom and fireplace. The house had everything we could ask for. We could see all the updates which was beautiful. The tree in the front needed to be lifted back with cables, but we did enjoy the porch. We also had to get the propane tank filled. After we got past the first night, all in all we had a wonder time at the house.

    AMAZING! My phone calls were met with courtesy and excellent customer service, the home was beautiful-neat, clean, and charming. Ryan did a fabulous job of explaining the way to get into the house through the back driveway, was impecably helpful during our stay-answered my many questions via text promptly and thoroughly, and was very helpful in describing the area to us for ideas. Overall, our stay was peacful and enjoyable, exactly what my BIG family needed.

    Lynka A from San Francisco, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The Victorian is a charming, roomy family home. The kitchen is super well equipped with a windowseat just perfect to perch on while waiting for the turkey to cook. There were six of us here for Thanksgiving hunkered down dancing and playing board games while the rains drenched the Mendocino coast. We awoke each morning to the quiet country and my only struggle was getting out of bed—- so high off the floor I wish there were stairs!

    The only problems seem to be with the lack of care and attention from the Irish Beach Rental Agency. We were told to pick up the house keys at 4pm but terrible traffic prevented our on time arrival. I called THREE times to inform them of this and no one had the courtesy to call me back and ease my distress. Turns out the keys are left in an UNLOCKED box out front of the office complete with a map of how to find the house. This is simply unsafe. But ok, got the keys, found the house, but struggled with how to get in. A few more words would have informed us that there is no front door from the street; it is completely fenced in. Who would ever think you had to drive through the community center, find the rolling gate and drive into the backyard? Then, try and find the door! All in the dark! Not cool. At the end of our stay there was no info regarding where to place our trash. We finally found a shed out back with some rotten cans and put our garbage inside, I hope it was found! The agency did not answer our calls.

    But, we really loved the house and would return, now that we know how to get inside!

    Jesse H from San Francisco, CA does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The house we stayed in was great. The service/operation of Irish Beach was so awful I'm embarrassed for them. There were several early signs of this - before our visit, we had a few minor questions, but trying to get a hold of anyone by phone or email was impossible. Calls went unanswered, there was no messaging machine, and I don't think the people there know how to use email. The biggest glaring issue was that in the info they provided us, THE ADDRESS FOR THE HOUSE WAS WRONG!! We spent 1 hour driving in circles, in the middle of the night, looking for our house. There were 2 emergency numbers listed in the information packet, but no one answered when we called, nor returned our messages EVER to see if we were ok. After our stay, I tried calling probably 20 times to let them know that the address they have on file is wrong. When I finally got through to someone, they did not apologize, or even admit that there was a problem. They said they would look into it and call me back, which they never did. Needless to say, these people are either lazy, incompetent, careless, or most likely, all of the above. This review is coming from someone that has very low standards - I just hope to receive common decency and respect, especially when we paid so much money.

    Sid D from san ramon, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great time staying at The Victorian. The whole experience staying at a home built in 1896 is a bit surreal. The owners have maintained the home interiors very tastefully. The Kitchen is totally a chefs kitchen. The event hall next to the property is the only drawback. There was a party the weekend we stayed and loud music till midnight was not desirable. Getting the keys to the house was an issue since the property management company didn't keep it at the location where they promised and we had to make couple of calls and they drove in to the property and handed over the keys. Overall a good Getaway. The country store is 3-4mins away and that made it very convenient. Thanks to the owners for letting us stay at The Victorian.

    Maya K from Palo Alto, CA recommends this vacation rental

    This is an absolutely beautiful house -- the pictures in the listing don't do it justice. There are views of Arena Point lighthouse from the kitchen and living room windows. The windows are huge, the floorboards are old and lovely, and the kitchen is fantastic. What you can't see in the pictures is that the kitchen is divided in two parts. There's a 'public' kitchen in the main dining area with a large lovely marble island, a copper bar sink, the stove and a very comfy window seat. Adjoining that is a smaller 'butler's pantry' area that has the big deep sink, the dishwasher, more prep space, toaster, microwave, coffeemaker and teapot. It's a really great arrangement. We were in the house for eight days over the holidays and cooked enormous feasts nearly every night and the kitchen was absolutely up to the task -- we loved it. The upstairs bedrooms are all comfy and each has its own bathroom, all very clean and newly-renovated.

    The only downside is the neighboring grange hall. It's literally RIGHT next door, and the first night we were in the house (Christmas Eve) a large private party with extremely loud music started at about 7pm and went ABSOLUTELY ALL NIGHT LONG, ending the next afternoon at about 3pm. With the music blaring the entire time, all night, with no let up. No rowdiness or shouting or anything, just loud, loud, loud music all night long. We'd read another review that mentioned a rowdy July 4th party at the Grange so we did our best to figure out if there were going to be events at the hall while we were there, and there was no indication that the all night party was going to happen. So, if I were to rent the house again, I would definitely call the grange hall since they apparently don't put the schedule for private parties on their website, only events open to the public like weekend breakfasts. Just a word to the wise.

    So, other than the grange issue, it was a great stay in a gorgeous house and we were extremely sa

      Hello Maya, Thank you for taking the time to leave some very valuable renter feedback. I'm so glad to hear that you loved the house, it's such a beautiful home. However, I am sorry about the noise you experienced from the Grange. It is a bummer that the house is in close proximity to the Grange hall for that reason. It isn't often a problem however it does occur, especially over the holidays with parties and what not. I'm sorry to hear that it interrupted your stay, but so happy that you enjoyed your time otherwise. Hope to see you back soon! -Franchesca
