Beautiful house and gardens! Enjoyed our stay

1/5 Terrible

Gross misrepresentation of property and amenities
This was not ‘old world charm’-this was a poorly maintained property. Undisclosed camera on property, Overall filthy, clearly not regularly cleaned. Clothes dryer was broken and not replaced for 10 days, cookware severely peeling/unusable, during a light rain water rushes in doors/windows, stove unusable due to overwhelming gas odor, unused stove hood leaks water constantly in to stovetop, all window blinds dry rotted/inoperable, windows in ‘solarium’ are in terrible condition/stained, CAT ON PROPERTY not mentioned until we arrived, cat hair on all outdoor furniture, cat is aggressive and intrusive, jumps constantly on us and our dog and darts INSIDE house, it’s obviously starving, faucet water from well is brown upon arrival and so metallic is caused teeth ache, animal hole in bathroom ceiling, floors are duct taped together, wood floorboards soft/bend and concerning, inadequate cooling by window units, soap was watered down not refilled, no closets for clothes storage, wall and ceiling damages not filling repaired - there are several large patches and unpainted in every room. Indoor lighting is LOW. Very dark and not at all bright as represented in photos. Half outdoor lights are broken incl pool. Grounds overgrown. Owner was on property over 50% of our stay and consistently entered property when we weren’t present, when we reported a gas leak outside the front door the Owner denied a problem without even coming out. We called 911 and the fire dept Detected the presence of gas and acknowledged they had been out for this many times previously. Gas company Rep turned off gas and stated he has told Owner previously to properly repair the valve with a plumber. Owner is a ‘realtor’ and after we politely decided to not use him for our home search he and wife inappropriately and unprofessionally called, emailed, and left voicemails demanding further explanation. When we stood our ground and politely declined further explain action, the Owner abruptly ended our stay 10 days early citing Covid concerns. The Covid conditions were worse during our initial booking and leading up to our arrival. I regret staying any time at this property after reporting it to VRBO upon arrival. 1st red flag was finding them on a competitor site ≤tting them talk us into booking on VRBO instead. Owners sugary sweet denials of misrep is not charming, just ignorant and deceiving. Pic evidence of complaints above and many more submitted to VRBO. Owner takes no responsibility.

5/5 Excellent
