The pictures and owners description of this condo are a gross misrepresentation of reality
After checking in we realized that we were deceived by the photos of this property. The first thing that was very obvious was the owner took pictures and posted them that were not views from this unit. When we opened the shutters to see the view, we found dead bugs, cobwebs, dirt and "For Sale" signs in the windows. The living area overlooks a dock and a parking lot. The master has the same view and the second bedroom windows overlook a noisy highway. The living are has a large glass door that is covered with duct tape, clothes pins, and paper as the blind. In the kitchen and bedrooms the owner left personal items throughout. Personal bank documents, receipts, and all kinds of personal debris was left everywhere. The description of the property states that there is a stainless steel grill ready to use. The grill is over 50% rusted to the point of having holes in some areas. The grill was extremely dirty and smelled terrible. I noticed later that there are not any pictures of the grill in the listing. The condo is no where near, "Immaculate condition." The pictures showing the rooms of this property do not show that there are severe stains on the carpet throughout the unit. We did not know if the stains were from pets, humans, or something else and were very concerned about our three year old little girl playing on the carpet. There are no usable hangers in the closets, dressers or any bedroom furniture besides beds. We were also concerned about leaving our belongings on the floor. The sheets and bedding are of the lowest possible quality and are soiled and stained. The kitchen sink is damaged by stains. In the refrigerator there are large plastic containers filling with water because it is leaking in more than one location. The kitchen floor is damaged and bowing to the point we were tripping on it. We were beyond disappointed when we checked in. I texted the owner 21 photos of our concerns regarding his property. The owner told me that he would have someone clean the condo the following day. The filth and disrepair of this condo was far beyond a simple cleaning. We left the next day.
