Adequate but disappointed
I have rented quite a few properties through VRBO and this is my first disappointment. First the positives. The property is as advertised in terms of usable space and was therefore adequate for our whole family. There are four good sized bedrooms and three decent bathrooms. The bathrooms are renovated. The kitchen is adequate and is stocked with enough dishes, glassware etc for a family. It is short on practical items like a decent knife to cut a bagel. It is also in a good location for the market, parliament hill etc. But be aware it is a downtown location so a very mixed neighbourhood. You may not want to walk around at night. There is parking for two cars and free street parking. There is good wifi and TV. However if you are looking for an adult experience in a niceLy decorated downtown townhouse this is not it. This house looks and feels like student accomdation right down to the frosted windows so you can't see out. There are no "homely" touches. Each room has the bare minimal of furniture. One of the beds is on the floor. No matching comforters here. There is only one couch in the sitting room, broken when we were there, so only seating for three. Also the property was not very clean. We did talk to the property manager about the cleanliness, the broken wood on the stairs and the couch. She was very pleasant and refunded our cleaning fee.
