  • Need some fixing


    some of the lights did not work (mostly all the ones where the stairway light switch is located). They were suppose to send someone to change to the bulbs, no one never show up. Ceiling fan did not work,, like all the strings were pulled off from every room. King size bed missing (there were only 7 beds and one sleeper sofa). The pictures on the profiles, need to be updated. Some of the curtains were missing. So it was visible in some rooms. One room had water leaking from the vent, prob from the ac (idk)

    Looks nothing like on the pictures. She is not putting money back in the house people break things then it’s just broke. House was not cleaned, no shower head and the list goes on. No king beds. No pool table the people broke that too. She told me the people had broke everything the week before but that has nothing to do with me. She had plenty of time to get the house back together. She said if I don’t like it leave but wasn’t trying to give me a dollar back. Don’t waste your time. Unless you can deal with these things leave it alone. Then she rented the back thing behind the house there was already no parking so we had to figure it out. These people had 4 cars. So say the least we all were just stuck in. I wouldn’t recommend this house to nobody. If she would put the money back in the house it might not be bad. She is trying to get a dollar. My first house experience in I think I will just stick to hotels from now on.
