We arrived to an uncut lawn, with piles of dog poop, and a yellow jacket nest with hundreds!!!
The driveway down is very steep with 1 car access!! House pic used is VERY old...I’d like to post pic of actual home. Unable to sit on deck due to yellowjacket nest with hundreds in roof right by deck door.. Lawn uncut, dog poop (we had to clean, couldn’t sit on deck due to yellow jackets) Inside ... well, where to begin, furniture chairs in living room had no cushion but hard chair pads piled high instead, recliner was broken in up position(never sat in either). The daybed in living room was full of dog hair..Kitchen had mouse poop under knives(which would need to be cleaned prior to use)dishes out of cabinet had food on them, ( I picked up a plate that had butter in the clean cabinet) bathroom garbage was full on arrival, I had to clean toilet prior to using it. Bedroom .. oh my lord!!! No mattress cover, mattress is old & dips in middle. Sink roll into middle, ac unit in bedroom was filthy. Could not open windows screens have holes or missing, yellow jackets would fly inside....Owner left personal items out everywhere!! Not an inch to put anything..I had texted the owner to let him know the maintenance was lacking he would contact them. He told me he lived there full time, it was hard work fir him to pack up & go every time he rented...He offered to call exterminator but I would need to wait & show exterminator where yellow jackets were, newsflash!! Ya can’t miss them um that’s something that should have been handled prior to arrival and did not happen overnight!!!!!! first vbro and last... all of this can be yours for $1500 too!! Owner is delusional to think any of that is acceptable!! Renter beware!! Positive, water is wet!! How do I charge my cleaning fee?? Absolutely think twice.. no words!!!! ( the owner did offer to take us on his boat while exterminator did his thing with yellow jackets, but told me the bees would be angry possibly aggressive, I’m allergic that was a big fat NO, but kind...He knew those yellow jackets were an issue... Posting such a lovely pic & arriving to that nightmare is dishonest!! Shame on you!!!!!!!!!!
Outrageous slant on everything. Had exterminator scheduled but they refused . he came day after they left. Furniture is "campy" but comfortable. My dog is Golden doodle and does not shed! All previous renters had a marvellous time. Will admit bees were getting worse. One whole;e bureau was empty. . These people need a Hilton not a camp.
We certainly enjoyed the lake view and sunsets. The boathouse has potential, but this is not rental ready. We had to cancel a family get together once we arrived and saw how cluttered and dirty the property was. Very embarrassing. Thank goodness for beautiful sunsets.
I am pleased you were able to enjoy the boathouse even through the deficits . The property is under some construction and the material to to do the work is cluttering up the landscape. Also we just installed cable TV and internet and have not removed the two dishes. More clutter. We must remember that this is not a hotel property but the place I and my son live in. There is always something gong on work wise and I will address this on my website next.
