Based on the description and reviews, I booked this rental for the week of September 15th-20th for my husband and I and 3 small dogs. We arrived after a 6 hour drive, finding a separate entrance at the back of the property. I was immediately put on alert with the state of the back of the property, littered with a pile of bricks, seemingly abandoned vehicles, open fire pit, and gates that were broken and hanging off the hinges. We stepped into the unit which was stifling hot and called the owner to ask about the thermostat to the a/c. When the owner arrived, his suggestion was to put the fans in the window (the only controls are in his part of the house). As we were talking to the owner, I was struck by the uncleanliness – pile of dog hair on the area rug; dust covering the furniture, floors, etc. The white leather sofa and recliner are worn and dirty. When I expressed my dissatisfaction about the lack of air conditioning and cleanliness, he did state he would “compensate” us if we chose to not stay and we agreed to having the unit cleaned the next day while we were out as we thought it over. Exhausted, 3 dogs, our 6 month savings for this stay spent and with a deep sea fishing expedition pre-paid for Wednesday, we felt we had little options. The water in the bath tub was draining slowly when we took our showers that night, the water backing up to our ankles. Wednesday morning the tub did not drain at all and filled up to about mid-calf. We left for our fishing excursion thinking it would drain during our absence. After a full day spent fishing, we returned and (with my husband’s help to the owner) had to deal with snaking out the clogged bath tub. The next morning we were over run with ants on the sofa but managed to repel them with Off we found in the cabinet. This property needs far more than a trip to IKEA – it needs a general over-haul including an investigation as to the water stained ceiling tiles in the kitchen which are not shown in the photos.
