A great disappointment

  • 1 of 5

The location don't match the photos provided. The home needs major upgrades and cleaning. The owners need to fix A lot of hazards throughout the premises. The sliding door is ready to fallout the frame which can be a serious disaster ready to happen. The house was not cleaned and some extremely filthy furniture. The house was infested with all sorts of bugs that invaded my family from the kitchen to the bedrooms. I had to place sheets over the living room furniture due to stains and extremely dirty furniture in house. I had to call owner several times due to the conditions of this hocus pocus home. The pool was not clean and malfunctioning jaccuzi. The oven was a disaster the dish washer had a note stating "leaks and don't work" among several other multiple notes on tape with these same words. The landscaping was disturbing with excessive over growth and weeds taking over the entire property. The play ground area was not safe to use until I complain of missing steps. The biggest disappointment I paid for this over 2 months adhead and the day I arrived the house was not ready for my family. The owner knew we was coming in and the place was not ready. I expected something different especially with photos on this site. I've rented several properties previously but, not from this site a totally different experience than the experience my family
