Nice home - but needs some TLC
This house can sleep 9 people on beds and has a great view off the back porch. While the house location is great and is a nice home, we had our 1st negative experience with a VRBO. Every VRBO may have 1 or 2 glitches, but there were so many here - it became frustrating. I submitted a review to the management first for them to be able to respond before giving a review here. That has been 3 weeks ago with no response - so...below is my review:
1. Upon arrival, the walk way (un-level stone steps down to the deck) were so covered in leaves, we tripped not seeing the stones. 2. The deck walkway leading to the front door was shin deep in leaves. Unloading, we tracked in a livingroom full of leaves along with wind blowing some in while the door was open - creating much labor to remove 3.Outside table was not cleaned off & had left over food on it 4.Screens on sliding doors were off & leaned up against deck railing & had to put flat on deck to keep from blowing around, plus one door has to be lifted to open 5. Many bulbs were burnt out 6.Went to find extra bulbs that were above washer and dryer. In opening the collapsable door, it came totally out of the guides, & was difficult to get it back in the guides. It did this every time, even being aware that it would 7. Couldn't get the TV to work. 8. The DVD player would not work 9. The boom box (radio, cassette, cd player) The CD player would not work. 10. Upstairs shower handle and cold water handle fell off when turning. 11. No mop to clean up spills 12. Kitchen sink faucet was loose and the sprayer was useless 13. No curtains in downstairs bedroom sliding door to deck that is facing the neighbors deck/windows in which they did look in a few times - Couldn't dress without hiding in a corner 14. Fireplace was full of ashes & bugs - once you open the door, couldn't shut it because lever for the flue was bent & had to get a knife to hold it up to shut - front glass door was black with soot & could easily be wiped off AND there was no firewood. 15 The weber grill doesn't look like it has ever been cleaned. 16. 3 sales calls on the land line.
I'll stop there - don't have enough characters remaining - but there were about 5 other small details you would normally overlook, but start to bother you when so many things were going wrong.
Notes to consider (not complaints) hard to get out of steep gravel driveway (no motorcycles) - kitchen is well stocked but has very small skillets (2) - the pan you use the most.
