We rented this property for nearly a month – 26 days. We had rented numerous properties thru VRBO in the past and selected this “bungalow” based on the description, photos, and previous reviews in the VRBO listing. However, once we saw the property we were so disappointed we stayed only one night and moved into a hotel for a few days until we could find another place to stay. The description lists the property as “chic, comfortable, bright, peaceful, and as having a vibrant, eclectic vibe”. We felt no such vibe. We found the property to be small, old, and worn. Clever photography makes the place look much better than it actually is. The living room was so dimly lit, we went out and purchased a light to brighten up the place for the one night we were there. The door to the 2nd bedroom cannot be closed - the bed is in the way. The closet for the master bedroom is actually in the bathroom along with mops, vacuum cleaner, broom, cleaning supplies, someone's shoes, and hanging clothes. The shelf in the closet for the 2nd bedroom had some of the owner's stuff on it. Several drawers in each dresser included the owner’s clothes and other articles. The medicine cabinet in the bathroom was full of the owner’s things. When we questioned the owner about this, the response was “there’s plenty of space for your things”. We requested a refund thru VRBO but received little support. We were told that they forwarded the complaint and refund request to the owner. However, the owner failed to respond. According to VRBO, they do not mediate disputes between the renter and owner. Their suggestion was to write a review.
