Extremely Disappointed, Not Safe, Beware
DO NOT RENT. This apartment is NOT what was advertised -- it did not have the same rooms or features - It is basically a suite located in the owner's residence and it seems to have been renovated very recently, yet in a shoddy fashion. There were short HORIZONTAL blinds on the sliding doors in two of the rooms. The ones in the BEDROOM DID NOT REACH THE FLOOR so there was not adequate privacy. Furthermore, the blinds FELL on my daughter and I had to rehang them so that we would have at least partial privacy. We were supplied with three towels, one of which had to be used as a bathmat. There was no bath soap given to us. The light switches did not work properly, the floor was dirty, and the mattress was disgusting. There was an unsafe walkway (broken, uneven bricks and no lighting) to the entranceway of the apartment. Privacy/safety was inadequate considering there were FIVE access points to this apartment – two sliding doors to the outside and three interior doors that lead to other areas of the owner’s home. (We know this considering noise came from them VERY LATE AT NIGHT, so one would assume that the owners could come in at any time…) There was no particular place to put clothing – just desks for writing and TV stands. The entire place looked like it was furnished by findings of a garage sale, nothing matched and nothing made sense. There were shelves under a mirror, but they were packed with random stuff for repairs. There was no silverware provided, no frying pan for cooking, no cabinet place for food, and no bed pillows. The only logical explanation for the complete filth in this place would be that they MUST have just completed the renovation. The tiling was very dirty; walking around barefoot was not an option considering our feet were BLACK and sandy after an hour of walking around. There was only one French door rather than two leading to the kitchen–seemed as if the renovation was incomplete. The random furniture that was described earlier was inferior–the desk drawer almost fell off and the chairs were wobbly. The toilet was positioned so that one had to sit sideways on it. Outdoor furniture provided was disgusting as well: dirty and needed to be sprayed down. This unit should NOT be on VRBO. Before renting, consider these offensive and unacceptable aspects: the owners' excessive noise late at night, lack of privacy, filthy floors and bed, and the misrepresentation of the apartment. Bottom line: we left 3 days early.
