Find Another House!!
We were here for 19 days. Our first impression of the house it needs work inside and out. It had the feeling it needed painting and just a good rub down. Cobwebs everywhere, the drawers were disordered and many kid oriented items; the kitchen cabinents were in disarray and found this and that all around the house and tried to organize. Some lamps had no lampshades. We brought our own pillows and used their pillowcases and found one of their pillow so discolored and disgusting! The refrigerator ice-maker was not working. No DVD player so we bought one. The carpet was severely stained and disgusting. The dining room table chairs kept falling apart. The house A/C is so old is could not keep up with the hot days. We had to buy 2 fans; one for the livingroom and one for the bedroom. The thermostat did not work so they put a theremin enter next to it and by early afternoon is was 80 degrees in the house, and by late afternoon is was 84 degrees. I bought my own thermometer to accurately gauge the temperature. I told them if this issue and they did sent out a repair crew that band-aided the old system. Did not help much. I waited for those people 4 times while I was at the house for different things! This is not my job! Very frustrating. We did enjoy the beds were comfortable, new Flatscreen TV; furniture was sufficient in the livingroom but I got a recliner at the local thrift store. The bathrooms okay, except the plumbing was slow and we had back-ups at both toilets. Owners live in LA area away from the house. They did have a friend come by one morning when A/C was leaking water into the carpet. We did have a nice time on the 4th of July. The boat parade went right in front if the house and Helendale does a nice fireworks show we could see wonderfully from the deck of the house. They did have drunk friends show up which dampened the mood, however. The open water is nice and we used their kayak, not so much the inflatable boat. A motorized boat would have been nice and a golf cart. They did have Wi-Fi and Satellite TV. My son caught a 15- lb catfish off their dock and a few smaller fish. That was nice as the view of the open water from the inside of the house and deck. The house gets west sun so it hears up inside, and the window coverings for that side of the house are wearing down. Needs work, refurbishment, thorough cleaning. I do not feel it was prepared properly for a vacation rental especially at their prices. They kept our deposit. Ugh!
