worse than my college apartment
This STR was a huge disappointment and made my 10 days with my kids more stressful and difficult. The parking was difficult and only on the street. The garage looked like a garage sale of rejects and broken furniture. The pool table was nearly falling down and concave so that all balls rolled to the center. The equipment to play was mostly all broken. There was a camera INSIDE the house. I NEVER was notified of this. I unplugged it. The kitchen was the biggest joke. The fridge and freezer were full of things "for sale' so that there was no room for my week's worth of groceries. Same for the pantry ...full of clutter and no room. There were FOUR forks. The skillet was the size of my palm and similar quality to a first year college student. There was no container to make juice. The tupperware had no lids. There was no baggies, saran wrap, soap, shampoo, laundry soap or any other items of convenience. The oven didn't work and was not repair or replace during the 10 days I was there. The microwave was tiny and low powered. The washing machine had one setting as the dial was broken. When I reported this to the owner, she sent me a laughing emoji and said it was her cleaners' fault for not reporting the issues. The beds were adequate. There were 4 towels for 4 people. The furniture was ragged and college apartment quality. One coffee table had spray paint on it as decor. The TV was old tube style with no streaming ability, Had to use my laptop to watch anything The remote situation was confusing and the owner's English was inadequate enough to give directions to clarify how to make them work. Overall, this was a terrible experience and I don't recommend staying here unless you are staying for 1-2 nights and plan to ONLY sleep here and your standards are similar to college student.
