Needs to be better maintained

  • 2 of 5
This was our 3rd vacation in Old Florida Village and is the only house of the 3 that we would probably not rent again. The location and the layout of the house is very nice, however, we encountered problems that should not exist in a house that is not inexpensive to rent. The separate sound system connected to the main TV was terrible and we couldn't use it due to the static and inability to control the volume. The propane grill was extremely dirty and should be replaced immediately. The kitchen garbage container was missing a lid and none of the sinks in the bathroom had working stoppers. Items on the kitchen counter had grease underneath them. The inside of the front door desperately needs a new coat of paint. Baseboards and the bottoms of furniture needed to be cleaned. When things are visibly dirty/unmaintained it makes you wonder what the overall cleanliness is..........We rented the house through an agency and it appears that neither the owner nor the cleaning people with the agency are doing a proper job of maintaining the house. When I go on vacation I don't expect to have to deal with these types of issues and it takes away from what should be a pleasant experience. My understanding from the agency is that some of the issues that we encountered Day 1 were reported to the owner, ie the TV system, but nothing was done and the agency also was less than helpful when we reported the additional issues. The only positive response was the help that we got from one of the agency repairmen that we saw in the neighborhood the first day. He tried to help with the TV, went and got a new garbage can for the kitchen and replaced some of the bathroom stoppers.
