Skip This House and Keep Looking
Submitted: September 6, 2011
Stayed: August 2011
Dealing with the owners is not worth the amenties in the house. Many things advertised on this site are false. Air conditioning: a noisy window unit only in the master bedroom. Dishwasher: It was broken during our entire stay. Disappointing to wash dishes every day instead of playing games with the kids. Cleaning included: Apparently not! We left the house as we have all of the other VRBO houses we've rented with the beds unmade, towels on the floor, catsup and mustard bottles and ice still in the refrigerator, and trash gathered in the trash bags we had to buy, because there was only one supplied, and put by the front door. The only thing I don't normally do is I left the breakfast dishes in the sink on the last day, because the dishwasher was supposed to be repaired that day. Well the owner kept my entire deposit, because he said I left it a mess. When I called to discuss it with him, I was yelled at, told there was no talking about it, and hung up on! So, I paid the entire deposit to have the beds made, the towels washed and put away, bottles in the refrigerator thrown out, a few dishes cleaned, and floors swept. So, I'm not sure what is meant by cleaning included! I'm sure the owner will respond to this post describing the pig sty we left (a flat out lie) with many words in ALL CAPS, because that is the way he spoke to me on the phone. So, again, my advice is find another house.
Owner's Response: In the 4 years I have been renting my 2 holmes, I have never had it left in such a mess. The garbage is supposed to be removed and taken to the compactors. 3 bags of garbage left in house, another full bag for the food left. Pots and dishes left in sink & on counter. display items all over the floor.
cleaning crew charged me double to clean house. It was just a mess. Had to pay to have 4 garbage bags removed.
DO NOT COME BACK. Future renters read my other reviews.
DO NOT be fooled by this persons review.
