We were at a disadvantage from the outset because the very first review on this rental had not yet been posted.
Upon arriving we had to purchase wine glasses, ice cube trays, face cloths and dish cloths and even cleaning supplies. The pillows were paper thin and after a couple of nights sleep, we bought 2 pillows. No brush was provided to clean the BBQ. When I mentioned it to the owner, he told me he had taken it but never did return it during our stay.
There were large holes in two of the bedroom screens. We repaired them with duct tape as a gecko actually got in one day. Only after arrival were we told the house was serviced by undrinkable well water. Only in our last week did the owner tell us that just 5 minutes away was a refilling station at one quarter the price of what we ad been paying. Not to mention the waste of 30 plastic bottles.
Due to well water sediment, the hold handles on the toilets would constantly stick in the open position. So we would have to take off the lid and jiggle the stopper.
We had to pay an extra fee for our dog. We figured the owner wanted to protect his new furnishings. Not so. This is a very well used house. We did ask for the extra "cash grab" dog fee back. We felt that we had been taken advantage of. Our request was turned down.
We have rented many, many times through VRBO. This was a disappointment.
STAY AWAY - WHAT AN EXPIERENCE THIS HAS BEEN....
First I was told could pay for this rental by credit card, then when they found out the credit card company was going to charge them a fee they changed their mind!
Then without telling me first they returned my credit card payment and wanted paid by echeck (pay from my checking account)they said if I wanted to pay by credit card I would have to pay their fee $113.00 After that every day I kept getting notices to pay. BUT I was not going to pay before my money was returned into my credit card account. After all I didn’t know these people and for all I knew …this could have been a scam.
The next thing came up was I was could not check-in until after 4 PM on Jan 1st. Nowhere or at any time was I informed that Check-in was 4 PM
Just weeks before they said I might be able to get into the house early because no one was renting in December.The posting on the VRBO website stated there was cable TV. There was… but it JUST wasn't working when I arrived. They said they had to get another Comcast box for the TV and it wasn't working. A technician was coming on Monday. That was Friday! They said there was a Dish TV in the bedroom. It was in Vacation Mode so I had no TV. Tried to call them several times but they had their phone turned off.
They said there was a DVD player…I looked all over the house.
There was no DVD player. The day after I arrived they went out and bought one.
The Wi-Fi they advertised has been off and on every day for the entire month of January. It was not my job, but I called Comcast about it and had to take the wi-fi router to the Comcast office. When I got there 25 people were waiting. I was there over two hours.
When I got the router from Comcast and hooked it up and it went out within the first hour. Then I call Comcast and a technician come to the house. Had to wait another two days for him to show up. Said he had it fixed and it was out again the next day.
They stated on VBRO that the house had a garage. It does…..but it's full of junk and I could not use it. Next I was told there will be an extra charge if I were to go over what the average electric bill which was $80.00 ..ALL OF THESE THINGS SHOULD HAVE BEEN WORKED OUT AND TAKEN CARE OF BEFORE I ARRIVED.
When I brought all of up to them they said it was not their fault.
THESE PEOPLE HAVE NEVER RENTED THIS HOUSE OR ANY OTHER PROPERTY BEFORE.
They know nothing about vacation rentals. I have been renting in Florida for the pas 8 year this was a bad experience....
