For extreme bargain hunters only
Unwilling to pay the crazy high prices for most rentals near Volcanoes Nat'l Park, I found this little bargain. Read the description and look at the photos carefully. What you see in the photos is exactly what you get. This rental is the furnished basement of a larger home. As one reviewer noted, and is clear from the floor plan, there is only a partial wall that separates one bed from the other two. Also note that the beds are FULL size beds, not queen and definitely not king. If you're over 6 ft, your feet will dangle off the bed! The unit is clean, but musty and damp. It's close to the road so you hear any cars driving by. The furniture and furnishings are what you would find in a second hand store or in your grandparent's home if they haven't updated anything since the 70's. Only enough hot water for one shower. Bring your own soap. There were bottles of shampoo and conditioner but I suspect they were left behind by a previous visitor. A new flat screen TV has replaced the old one in the photo, but no cable TV, just local channels. There are no instructions to finding them so here you go. Enter the channel you want using the numerical buttons on the remote. The channel up/down buttons on the remote or the TV yields nothing but snow. I discovered this after I had called the owner, whose response was "I don't know what to say about that". Nice guy but clueless. Offered to let us use the TV upstairs but we had already started a game of cards against humanity. That was definitely not provided, we brought it and no, we didn't leave it behind for you. I would rate the unit higher if it wasn't for the owner. The mix matched furniture and small beds are easily forgiven, but an owner that clearly doesn't care for the comfort of his guests is not. Soap and hot water are the bare minimum for any host. There are great owners on VRBO who go above and beyond to ensure a great stay for their guests. You won't find that here, so take your business elsewhere.
