I would not rent this property ever!
This owner seems never to want to give back your security deposit finding fault in everything. He has a bad skunk issue around his house it is hard to put out the trash without skunks getting into the trash. Rent linens as the linens on the property are soiled. there is a toilet in the kitchen. It was a last minute rental. It you have to make d, this is your place. If not go elsewhere! TRUST!
If Trash was put into the barrels provided there would not be an issue with creatures. The renter was told ahead of time that they would have to provide their own linens and towels. There were no soiled linens, because there are none provided. Yes there is a toilet off the kitchen, old house 120 years old. I returned the security deposit, even with damage to my property and food left in refrigerator.
There were several disappointing points this trip:
1. The day before we arrived I received a text from the owner letting us know that we wouldn't be able to check into the house until 4. Given that we had to have a very specific ferry arrival because we were bringing our car, this was pretty inconvenient. I then asked if we would be able to check out a little later because of the inconvenience and received a very strongly worded response about "if this was a hotel you wouldn't be able to check in till 4" etc. Mind you, the site lists check in at 3, as did our rental agreement.
2. There is no second bathroom. There is a toilet in the pantry behind a curtain. Weird, gross, false advertising.
3. Several days after we got home I got another text from the owner letting me know that he would be holding back $100 from security deposit because of damage done by our dog. I let him know that our elderly 4 pound dog was completely incapable of that sorts of damage and that I did many sweeps of the house before departure and there was no such damage. The owner then switched his story to just blame it on our negligence. While we are grateful to him for allowing us to bring our dog, it was all in all a pretty shady situation.
My family and I are always incredibly thoughtful guests and the fact that we did not receive the same from the owner of the property is very disappointing. The home is nice and the backyard is great, but make sure you take pictures of any damage when you arrive so you're not falsley accused of something.
