We were aware of the age of the home so we didn't have any problems with the water/staggering showers. There were some areas that weren't as "child friendly" (breakables, etc) but there was a nice playroom/sunroom that the kids liked to play in. The overhead kitchen light did not work which made cooking dinner a little difficult if it was too late/getting dark outside. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were clean and sufficient in size - the downstairs bathroom even had toys for the kids to play with. Communication was quick and easy although it would have been nice to have a little more information regarding check out requirements (empty dishwasher, take out garbage to the street, etc). The main problem we had was the obvious presence of a cat. There was a strong litter box/urine/cat smell, especially in the downstairs area and there was cat hair in the upstairs bedrooms. Our whole family has cat allergies so it would have been nice to have had the information before booking the house.
