Worst Rental EVER! DON'T BE FOOLED, SAVE YOUR MONEY AND STAY SOMEWHERE DECENT
This house should not be on this website. The homeowner is out of his mind for even listing it on this as a vacation rental. Hopefully VRBO has the sense to remove it. This house should be on vacation rental nightmares. Its advertised as "newly renovated" but is in the middle of being renovated. There is trash and rusted nails all over the yard, paint all over the floors, and no lock on the front door. When we showed up, the smell of paint fumes was overwhelming. Even the homeowner was covered in paint, so you knew he just finished slapping a coat of paint inside the house. You couldn't even open the drawers in the kitchen because they had been painted shut. Notice there is no picture of the 3rd bedroom? That's because its filled with construction supplies and paint buckets. After we told him we weren't staying there, he only wanted to refund us 50% of our money because of fees he was responsible for to VRBO. Riley (the homeowner) at one point even told us to call the police on him because we had to get confrontational, explaining to him we wanted our money refunded in full. My wife is 7 months pregnant, and he couldn't understand why we didn't want to stay in a house that smelled of paint fumes. Trying to reassure us he used oil based paint that was safe to be around. I wish I could post ACTUAL photos of what this place really looked like, because its nothing like the pictures listed on here. Save yourself the headache and money, and rent another place. This listing had no reviews when we booked it, and now we know why. The 5 star review is probably from a friend he had write it, because he told us that we were the first people to book the place since he owned it. PLEASE, unless you wanted to be stranded in Hawaii with no place to stay like we were, book another rental.
