BRING A LLAMA
We’ve rented many properties in Bisbee. None have been this crudely finished. I assumed “just remodeled from the ground up” meant we were going to find it completely renovated. But by simply painting over the badly lacerated hundred-year-old floor boards, not repairing badly damaged doors, and with poor fit and finish everywhere, it is substandard for a Bisbee rental. It is cutely decorated with many nice features, which made living conditions tolerable. There are a few other inaccuracies in the description, and not being forthright in describing “the walk up to the house” could have bad consequences. The walkway steps with varying rises (not to code) are dangerous, especially when descending and carrying a heavy item with both hands. Those physically limited should be aware the front doorsill has an elevation of 25’ above the parking area. 25’ is equivalent to climbing 3 stories of steps in a house with 8 foot ceilings. The climb is over a distance of 100’. The first half is up a narrow moderately sloping graveled path. The remaining distance is up a sloping surfaced walkway with exactly 20 steps to the doorsill, some very steep with the incline. Also be aware there are no above-counter cabinets in the kitchen. You have to kneel to reach dishes and glassware stored near floor level in an under-counter cabinet. And, there is no separate shower as can be interpreted. There is only a curtained clawfoot tub with a shower head and no handholds. Inadequate storage space was a big problem. It was very inconvenient living out of cardboard boxes and suitcases on the floor for a month. The only reachable cabinetry not being used by the owner were a small chest of drawers in the master BR and a few nightstands. This property best suits physically fit short-term renters who don’t mind roughing it a little.
