UNSAFE HOME! UNCOOPERATIVE AND RUDE OWNER!

  • 1 of 5
This house is in extremely poor condition with major safety issues. My family just stayed here with children for 9 days. Fire hazards include: no working fire extinguisher; master bath tub spa has a uncovered, working electrical outlet within easy reach of children; every time we turned the oven on the power went out with no safe way to get to the breaker box. The outside deck is rotted through and is on the upper level (about 15 feet high) and is over concrete. The outside staircases are high and rotting with unsafe handrails. Extremely dangerous at night--no outside lighting. Inconveniences: light bulbs burned out (we replaced at least 10). The "steam shower" has no hot water accessible. The "bonus room" has no air conditioning. The washing machine doesn't work. There were 4 towels and no blankets when we arrived. All of the outside furniture is in bad repair (hammock, umbrella, chairs, table). There are no window coverings in the bedrooms. Bed sheets used instead!! The kitchen has broken dishes (not enough), and minimal and shabby linens. Many of the doors have non-working knobs. The inside staircase (3 levels) seem sturdy, but are not lighted and are uneven. Dangerous.

The owner was very rude to me from the first time I contacted him. The way he talked to me on the phone was unbelievable. He was rude. He shouted at me. He insulted me. He accused me of trying to take advantage of him. The "house rules" include threats of high fines for any infraction--too much garbage, using too much electricity, etc. I understand the need for control with a rental home, but the threats (i.e., "The allotment for electricity is $11.29 per day and if more is used you will be fined $300." "If you have too much garbage the fine is $300." "If you move furniture the fine is $275." etc. Happy to provide pictures of damage and copies of house rules for your review. The owner demanded a credit card number every time we spoke. I paid the full rental amount in advance with cash, so am concerned he wanted my credit card number in order to post unwarranted "fines". The house was unclean. I would not recommend this house to anyone. Our family has used VRBO (Vacation Rentals by Owners) for 8 years. This is our first experience with a house in this poor condition and an owner this rude. Laci Cash, Atlanta
