Bottom Line - DIRTY!
Bottom Line: Dirty! My family and I stayed at this property for 3 days this fall, and we were quite disappointed. Plain and simple, the house was DIRTY. There were grounds left in the coffee make and the filter basket was overflowing with mold – Absolutely disgusting when we discovered this our first morning. The floors were not swept – there was food crumbs/sand/dirt on the main wooden flooring. There was an inch of an old carrot along the edge of the living room. The stove and oven are dirty. The stovetop was covered in old caked-on food. One of the burners didn’t work. The carpets (namely the master bedroom) were stained, spotted, and dirty. There were visible rings in the toilets, and the showers (and shower curtain) were moldy. Also, there were old bars of someone else’s soap in the shower. The deck and outdoor furniture was covered in dirt. There was no rug or patio arrangement as shown in the pictures – the photos were deceiving. The towels are old and weathered. The beds were dressed quite thin with just a sheet in many cases. We had to scrounge blankets in all the rest of the bedrooms to have enough blankets for the beds. The owner mentioned twice in previous responses to reviews that they had ordered a microwave in July. When we stayed there in October there was still no microwave. One of the railroad ties/stairs was rotten and broke when my young son stepped on it. Also, bring a headlamp – there is NO light when arriving after dark. This property does have potential. The great room with vaulted ceilings is nice and open. The living room furniture is new, and the large kitchen table makes for a great gathering space. The furniture in the bedrooms was also new and in nice shape. Our party was split with the memory-foam mattresses. The bottom line is this. At the price we paid, I expected a well-appointed, very clean VACATION RENTAL. I’ve stayed at many VRBO’s, and I have a low tolerance for a property that isn’t clean, and is misrepresented from the photos. The owner needs to have a frank discussion with their cleaning service about their expectations and the condition the property should be in upon entry. If it has not been recently occupied, a “freshen up” is necessary. Also, we tried to heed the many suggestions to save water posted throughout the house. However, it was mildly comical to see the sprinkler system outside geyser-ing the morning. Needs to be fixed.
