When we arrived, the most pressing issue was the strong odor of cat urine on the lower floor and the main floor. There had been no mention of a cat having lived there, and we had someone in our group who has a physician documented significant allergy to cats. The pillows were stained and the sheets did not smell clean. When the owner was contacted, it took her until the next day to respond (out of the country), however only half of our money was offered and the owner stated that was "generous". She stated that the house had been cleaned and that "clearly there is no cat there", although there was a litter box and cat hair in the vacuum cleaner downstairs. We were in the house for about 40 minutes maximum, and had to pack up the car in the pouring rain, and find a hotel. We could not find a hotel with 2 rooms (there were 5 of us so one room would not do) for 4 nights, so we had to stay in 3 different hotels, yes 8 hotel rooms at the last minute. This along with a tight itinerary (we were there to take my sisters ashes to scatter at my mother's grave) made for a very stressful time. I have filed a complaint, and the VRBO/Home Away said the owner would contact me. Still waiting...it has been 5 days since I made my complaint. I have stayed in many VRBOs and this has NEVER happened. All I seek is reimbursement for the home, as we did not stay there. For now I have paid for this house and 8 hotel rooms and have had nothing refunded to date by the owner. Very disappointed with this home, and the uncaring attitude of the owner.
Owner left when we arrived approximately 1 hr early. There wasn't any information on: parking accommodations, trash disposal, what was available to use and what wasn't, local stores and nearby interesting tourist sights.
There wasn't any closet or drawer space for our clothes available.
It was a little uncomfortable upon arrival with the owner leaving as we arrived
