Definitely not a 5-star!
When we rented this house we expected a simple house, nothing fancy or luxurious. We made the reservation based on 11 5-star reviews and, unfortunately, disregarded the one 1-star review. Little did we know just how right they were. This is what we found: • The house was in poor repair and dirty. “Rustic” is an optimistic description of the real condition of this house. • The bathtubs were so rusty and in need of caulking that some of us were unwilling to take a shower. • The kitchen has an old 6-burner Wolff range, but with only one pot in the cupboards and almost no cooking utensils it is difficult to do any “gourmet cooking.” • The toaster only works if you hold down the lever. • There were no washcloths or dish cloths. • The window coverings were cheap and broken. • One chair was so rickety we were afraid to sit on it. • Everything was dusty and the floor was dirty. We lifted the area rug in the living room and when it dropped it produced a large cloud of dust. We called the manager and she brought frying pans, bowls, towels, and cooking utensils. We checked the pictures posted on the VRBO listing and they are mostly accurate, but the pictures just do not show the true condition of the house or the worst parts of the house. I really wish I could attach pictures to this review. This is by far the worst experience we have ever had in a VRBO. This house isn’t worth half the price.
