  • No heat and not clean


    The property had no working heat. The place was cleaned when I was closed up for the summer and had not been touched since. The owner was great and was very apologetic however the cleaner/manager was not taking care of the place. VRBO was difficult to deal with. We ended up spending out thanksgiving meal at a Waffle House and a best western with our big family meal in coolers with ice overnight.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Timothy, we want to make vacation rental easy for everyone, and we're sorry that you experienced some issues during your stay. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - We're truly sorry for the heat issues during your stay. We made several calls to HVAC technicians, but since it was Thanksgiving, they were unavailable. When a technician finally agreed to go, you had already decided to leave
    - We also had our Guest Contact buy heaters and deliver them to you so you would be comfortable during your visit
    - We take pride in the cleanliness of our home, and we personally washed all the sheets and towels to ensure they were clean
    Thanks for taking the time to let us know about your visit.
