I have been waiting to post this review hoping that the owner would decide to honor his verbal promise to refund the security deposit.
Even before this theft of the deposit, there were some problems with the apartment. For instance, the only fan in the 2-room apartment had a broken stand. To operate it, it had to be propped against a chair in whatever position it ended up in...not terribly cooling. I called requesting a fan that was in usable condition (preferably two, since there are two rooms, and one cannot sleep with the windows open due to incredibly noisy traffic). The owner's wife (who, by the way, was very personable and did not seem to have any problems) brought another stand fan the next day...whose stand was ALSO broken, but not as badly.
The kitchen area smelled strongly of mildew, which I suspect is due to a faulty dishwasher installation.
The toilet was VERY slow, to the point that we went to restaurants to use their facilities. There was no plunger in the place, so we couldn't even try to help out in good faith (although we had put nothing down the toilet other than the normal amount of paper). (Oh, and speaking of paper, I discovered that they had not even left a starter amount of toilet paper...so late arrivals beware! Bring your own toilet paper!)
The boiler quit working the last evening, so we arrived from the beach dirty and sandy, and could not shower. On calling the owner, he did tell me how to work around to get the boiler going...but it took a full 2 hours to reheat the water!
On the phone, the owner was really nice. His wife came to check us out and to verify that we had cleaned properly (which we had). She called the owner in my presence to let him know, and I spoke to him directly. He said that the deposit would be refunded within 3 days.
After a week, nothing. I tried to email him, twice, no response. In desperation, I texted his wife asking for help. She did not respond. I called VRBO, and they contacted him. No response. They gave me his phone number. Someone answered who immediately said there was no one there by that name and hung up.
So the cost of the rental was effectively increased enormously. I don't know about you, but I don't enjoy feeling robbed. If you want to avoid that feeling, avoid this place like the plague. As a cheap pad, it's marginal. But for this price, I could have stayed in a nice hotel much closer in and not had the frustration.
