“Don't book!”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2017

This was a horrible house! It was extremely dirty! It states that there are sheets for all of the beds, so after a lot of looking, we finally found them in the downstairs bathroom closet, all balled up in the floor. Apparently, after using them, you have to wash and dry them, and are expected to fold them and return them to the closet! We had to wash every single sheet prior to using them. How were we to know that the previous guests really washed them, and didn't just throw the dirty sheets in the closet? Luckily, we had all brought our own towels/ washcloths. The kitchen floor was extremely dirty/ sticky- we had to mop it as soon as we arrived. The stove and microwave were caked with grease and needed to be cleaned prior to use. The living room/dining room combo was extremely dirty- the curtains were caked with dust and cobwebs. It appeared as if the dust was the only thing keeping the curtains together. We called the homeowner and discussed these things with her, but all she said was that men had stayed in the house before us, so that must be why the sheets were balled up. And she stated that she did not understand why the house/ kitchen floor was a mess, because someone had just been there to clean. My guess is either the cleaner was not thereat all, or this was a lie, because there is no way that house had just been cleaned. The grill that is provided was also extremely dirty, and it took my uncle over an hour to clean it before we could use it. All of the AC vents/ filters were also caked with dust. The homeowner did not apologize at all, just had excuses for why things were the way they were. Also, the children were upset about the indoor pool that was advertised, was an added expense.
