Very Dirty!
This place is advertised as a vacation rental, but the owner, his wife and 2 children live in it. The place looked like they moved out an hour before we arrived and hadn't even swept. We were travelling back home to winter after a month in Scottsdale (in a very nice, clean and well run VRBO property) and so were fully loaded including food for 5 days, winter clothes, purchased goods and our dog. The prospect of getting a same day dog friendly rental other than a hotel room looked slim, and the master bed was clean and had fresh linens (this and the very good sound system earned the 1 star), so we opted to stay. The closets and dressers were full of clothes, the 2 wall ovens looked like they hadn't been cleaned for years, the grill had no knobs (the owner uses a table knife to work the burners) and was as filthy inside and out. The kitchen was well stocked with spices, condiments and coffee, but I could have lived without the half loaf of bread, the half jug of milk and the half full container of lettuce. The ice maker in the fridge was a big block of ice. There were FIVE large trash drums in the side yard - all full or 3/4 full. We stayed for 3 of the 5 nights. We were out visiting other travelling relatives during the day. The final straw for us was seeing the 1" wide band of mold under the rim in the main toilet! - that was it, time to get out! I have pictures to back all this up and a video I made after we washed the linens and packed. I had complained to the owner about all of this early on day 2. First he angrily told me to 'get out', then he agreed that he would refund the substantial cleaning fee if we left the place as we found it (we swept, so it was actually cleaner than we found it), We advised him we were moving out 2 days early and wanted those 2 nights refunded plus the cleaning fee. We checked later that day and he had obviously moved back in, but it is looking like he will not send me any money without legal action an my part. It's our 4th time we have used VRBO to travel and our first bad experience. (first time we contacted the owner or VRBO about the stay actually) I could go on much longer with where you would expect a rental to be much cleaner, but I think you get the idea, This might be a place for partiers to crash for a couple of nights if you cant find anything else, but I would recommend staying away.
