would not rent again unless owner makes some needed upgrades

We rented this house for 6 ladies and it was for sure big enough to accommodate us all. That being said there was quite a bit of misleading going on with the photo's that are on this site. The angle of the camera makes the house seem much larger than it actually is and that was a let down and it didn't stop there. The three couches are VERY old VERY broken and very filthy, they slope forward, dump you out and make your back hurt! We all joked that they must have found them on the street with a free sign on them!
The house doesn't have an air conditioner and gets very warm and unbearable, this wouldn't be a problem if they provided a few floor fans as an option for the hot summer days/nights, and fans don't cost a lot and bring a ton of comfort. The cookware is horrible and everything you cook sticks this makes for difficult cooking and cleaning up, I suggest some non-stick cookware! The patio furniture on the back deck was not in the best of shape either, while having breakfast one morning I fell right though my chair because they are so worn, this will continue to happen because the remaining 3 chairs are also in the process of ripping.
The hot tub is awesome and big but to get to the control panel you must make a big step down onto cement blocks (that are not stable) this is not safe at all! And the deck rail is so high off the deck that a child or small adult could slip right though, also not good!
I have an issue that we paid a cleaning deposit but when we got there the house was not clean at all, dusty, dirty floors and towels and such and stains all over the furniture. These things did not ruin our trip but I see previous reviewers have made the same complaints and yet the owners have not made any changes to assist in the comfort of their guest. If the owners would make some simple changes this could be a 5 star property but again I can't get over the disgust of the couches they were really horrible.
This property also has bear issues and we had 2 of them enter our house while we were at the store. They ripped off the front screen and ate almost all of our food and left it all around the house, they came back again the next morning and tried to get in again but they failed this time, thank God.
I am sorry for just focusing on the negitive but isn't that what we all want to know any way?
Owner's Response: Hi Tammy,
I am very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at our home. We are in the process of purchasing replacement furniture to make it more comfortable. We greatly appreciate your honest feedback and are serious about making some improvements as soon as we can.
