We booked through VRBO.
Check in was noted to be 1pm. We arrived at 3:45 to find a motorcycle blocking the roadway, the door wide open, and a man sleeping on the porch. It was nearly three hours after Check-in and it still wasn't ready.
The cleaning lady said that she didn't have a key to give us for the place but that, "he'll bring it by tonight or first thing tomorrow." We called and left messages on each number provided in the listing and on the contact list on the refrigerator. We never heard back at all and never had the ability to lock the place for the entirety of our 3 night stay.
Also, this place was filthy. There were dead bugs scattered throughout the main living area floors. It was also very dusty. My wife had to take allergy meds for the first time in years. You could see your foot prints left behind in the dust.
The grill was disgusting. We elected to forego using it because it was covered in age old food residue. There was also brown residue impacted on the interior grooves of the green drinking cups.
Additionally, someone else's dirty dishes were in the sink when we arrived. I think the cleaning lady "cleaned" them and left them to dry. However, when I picked them up there was literally grease running down the sides.
There was either loads of mouse feces or a copious amount of dead insect carcasses in the basement. I couldn't tell what it was.
There is also the unusual quirk of having to take your trash with you when you leave. You will be fined if you leave it.
Lastly, for some reason there was a distinct smell of sewage outside the main entrance of the house every time we came and went.
One good thing is that we got our security deposit back.
I would like to attach pictures so that everyone can see what they're getting into, but I cannot.
