DON'T RENT THIS PLACE!
DO NOT RENT THIS PLACE, unless you want to throw money away on a very uncomfortable rental. “Sparsely furnished” is a laughable understatement. Prison cells have more furniture. Two bedrooms only have beds, no curtains, lamps, other furniture, or rugs. “Dressers” in three are mirrorless broken flea market rejects, as is most of the furniture. Baths have nothing more than what the builder put in – no towel bars, toilet paper holders, bath accessories or rugs. Kitchen is not equipped – a few rusty pots and pans, no cutting board, mixing bowls or grill accessories, and minimum cooking tools. Broken toaster, leaking refrigerator, altho the owner was notified several times. Dining has a small, unfinished table that only seats six on rickety chairs – no table linens. One lamp in the whole dining/living area is broken. Only three small throw rugs. Tiny wire chairs on the deck have wooden seats that are cracked and warped. No table. Grill had a wasp’s nest in it and looks like it hasn’t been cleaned in a year. The lower level patio has NO furniture. No landline phone, though cell service is sketchy at best – scary when you have elderly parents and young kids. A two car garage, but no remote door openers makes entry very difficult. DVD player or games for kids? Forget it. Few trash cans, no tools or scissors, no iron or ironing board, outlets that don’t work, and bent wire hangers complete the picture.The owner’s response? If you don’t like it, leave, and no, you don’t get a refund.
Any noise reverberates throughout “echo house” but you can’t understand the person standing next to you. The only TV that works is in the living room, but to hear it the volume has to be high, which keeps everyone awake at night. Huge empty floor areas and walls are cold and uninviting.
Cold? The furnace wasn’t working for five days because there were no directions on how to use the complicated dual level thermostats. No directions for anything for that matter. The lower level (read: basement) always felt like a refrigerator.
Kid's bath fan fell on our son when we reset the GFI. When the owners ignored our complaints we called the fire department, who noted that the smoke detectors didn’t have batteries and there weren’t any CO2 detectors! When the landlord was forced to repair the smoke detectors, they went off constantly when we cooked, even boiled water.
