Overall positive, but some cleanliness issues.
Overall we very much liked the house, and would consider renting it again in the future. The interior was well laid out and the overall internal appearance was clean. However, we did have a few issues: - The garbage area outside was a mess when we arrived. It appeared the prior renters left a significant amount of garbage and it looked as it some animals got into it as garbage was all over the place. We assumed that this would be cleaned by the garbage pickup service, but it was not. So we ended up cleaning up the area. Very disgusting. - The grounds outside of the driveway and immediate pool area were scattered with garbage. I am not sure who is responsible for picking it up, but there was garbage pretty much scattered throughout the pine areas. We also ended up walking around picking this up, some plastic bottles, paper, etc. - The gas grill was out of gas so we had to go buy a tank. When we cooked there were flames from the grease we found under the grill. A catch container was overflowing and the pan was filled with droppings and grease. So we cleaned this also. Again very disgusting. We did end up giving the full tank we bought to our friend who lives around the corner in exchange for his that was around 1/3rd full by the way. - The interior was clean, but we found many garbage items behind couches, under beds etc. The cleaning service should do a better job checking behind and under furniture. - Much of the silverware and some dishes were dirty on arrival. Almost like the prior renter just put dirty silverware and plates away. The cleaning crew should check this as part of their service.
