Roach Infested! Keep looking! !

“ Poor ”
September 11, 2015
From the beginning, owner was very quick to respond to all emails and calls. He was willing to work with us on a shorter stay and offered us an agreeable rate, including $500 refundable deposit. We were scheduled to check in on Aug. 2nd. On the morning of Aug. 2nd, he called me and wanted to check and make sure the house was suitable for us. I reminded him that we were scheduled to check in that day and still had a couple of hours of travel left and he stated he thought we were checking in on the 1st. No biggie. Upon arrival, he code he gave me was not working and I was unable to reach him or his housekeeper. We left to go get a drink at Jesters, and in the meantime, the house keeper called us back and gave me the correct code. I never did get a response from the owner. We finally accessed the house. At first impression, it's not bad....there is some neglect, peeling paint, water stains on deck floor and roof, and a light dangling from the roof ceiling. The inside is nice and large, a few broken tiles in the dining room floor and a very basic stocked kitchen. The beer tap that is advertised is privately taken away as owner tells you not to use it. The outdoor speaker system that is advertised is non-existent-literally, there are no outside speakers. It is advertised as 5 full bathrooms, but technically, there are 4 full baths inside, a half bath, and an outdoor non-private shower. So, if your like us, and your planning on each family per bedroom having their own bath, don't. The upstairs a/c only cooled the master bedroom. We were miserable in the remaining bedroom and the kids room. I think owner is aware as there are signs with instructions not to continue turning it down to a lower temp setting. But, the icing on the cake were the MASSIVE roaches that we killed every day throughout our stay. I took pictures as it was kind of unbelievable. We weren't able to leave any food out on counters and had to buy our own plastic silverware as we were NOT using these that I'm sure roaches have crawled all over. Also, the dishwasher is not even bolted in and takes two people to load, one to hold it in place and the other to load it. This house has the potential to be the nicest one in the whole neighborhood due to its awesome location and view (yes its as amazing as the pictures reflect) but it is desperately neglected. Oh, and the final straw with this house is, I have yet to get my deposit back and owner will not return calls.
