How to begin? I'll start with the bigger issues and work down from there. THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONING!!! In the property description air conditioning is stated as "forced air," the reason we rented this house. We walk in and turn the thermostat to cool and lower the temperature. Nothing came on. I texted Sean, he said there is no air and if I open the door a great breeze comes in. There is no screen on the door and the temperature in the house was 88 degrees Fahrenheit. I texted again complaining about the heat and false advertising; Sean's solution: have a friend drop off a small table fan. The six days were extremely hot and full of anxiety. We slept with windows open at ground level; they were not secure windows and luckily we were safe - I did not sleep much during the vacation. Next issue - the fourth bedroom is totally separated from the house. When we locked the sliding door at night the 4th bedroom could only access the house by opening the garage door and then coming in the front door with a key. Very inconvenient and I was extremely fortunate that my grown children took the room. Also, that was the hottest room, one window and no ceiling fan. Next issue - there is no ping pong table; although advertised it is simply not there. The putting green is artificial grass with a golf ball on it; no hole or golf club just a golf ball. The ants in the bathrooms were horrendous. I had to go to Walmart and buy ant bait. I couldn't spray anything as one of my children has asthma (another reason the lack of air was problematic), so we settled with little brown plastic baits. They helped but waking up with ants on you is itchy. I never found the video library that was advertised either. I am waiting for the owner to offer compensation for false advertising. Unfortunately, as we received a visit from a contractor who had lent him his portfolio and Bobcat, neither of which was returned in original condition, I am concerned I will even get my security deposit back. Half of the rent I believe will be an ample settlement - we will see.
