We selected the house based on its location, exclusion, apparently, and it's size. We were so disappointed that despite having paid for a week in advance, we left to find another place within an hour.
The splendid views shown on the website are not visible from the house or its garden. Shrubby trees have grown up around the house and block the view. The grass was long, the house very dark, if large, and amenities were lacking. For example, there was no toilet paper in one of the bathrooms. The freezer had no ice trays. The aspect was, in a word, unwelcoming. Obviously, we would not recommend. So far, Interhome and VRBO have not offered any compensation despite the misrepresentation that the photos present.
