I wont stay here again!!!
Need Dirty house in total disarray! We arrived at 4pm & spent 2-3 hrs trying to get a hold of the owner or caretaker, but no one answer or return calls or e-mails. Leaves & chips were all over the floor. Kitchen table had dirty rags & cleaners on it & the counters were dirty & full of dirty dishes, cleaning supplies, bag of open chips & stuff. Trash cans were all full. The Refrig./freezer had leftover parts & pieces & a 1/2 eaten casserole in big pan, which stunk. Bathroom had dirty rugs piled on trash can in front of toilet. The sink had dirty rags with hairs & used cu-tips on counter. More dirty towels on floor & 6 hanging dirty outback. Mbed had pillows in floor, 1 sheet on & other sheet & blanket piled dirty on dresser. 2nd BR beds were unmade & looked slept in. Patio furniture had towels over them, which were very dirty & looked like they hadn’t been washed in a very long time. Hot tub lid had so much mildew, I gagged at the smell when I opened it. No chemicals in the float, nor were there any extra to add. It was very cloudy & dirty-YUCK! After traveling 8hrs on my daughter’s birthday, we had to drive 2 more hrs roundtrip, costing $40=10 gals of gas to borrow sheets, not to mention having to buy cleaning supplies. We had to clean the house before our dinner with friends & family, because everyone was coming back to celebrate, the reason we rented the house. Our 5pm dinner had to be canceled, family & friends had to go home, a 40min drive each way, then return again at 9pm. The caretaker finally returned my call at 9pm, said she got my msg & would come clean next day, REALLY now that we have cleaned it & borrowed sheets. Also BEWARE THERE ARE NO BLINDS OR CURTAINS in house except for bedrms & bathrm. Anyone driving or walking down street can see right through the huge windows on the front & back of house. The entire kitchen, living rm & backyard are all very visible from the street & porch. If you really like people seeing everything you do, as well as all your personal belongs when you are out, this house is for you. Sunday morning while visiting out back, a man knocked wanting to come in & take care of chickens & get eggs. I explained politely we were taking care of them as requested, but thanks anyway, but he again showed up the next Sunday, waking us up on our only day to sleeping. Owner said she would refund our cleaning fee, because we had to clean, as if that makes up for wrecking all our plans,yet 2 weeks later still no refund,Imaginethat!
