House okay but overpriced for what you get - Much better options on IDR

  • 2 of 5

We have probably rented upwards of 100 VRBOs (no joke, lived in europe for 3 years and traveled ALL the time). We have also been visited Ile de Re for 6 years and we have experience with 10+ properties in IDR either directly or indirectly through the rentals of friends. So, first, the basics. Its a lovely house. It is nicely arranged and there is a good amount of space. It is well-equipped with much of what you need for kitchen, cooking, BBQ, etc. The decor, although not overly functional, is tasteful and creative. Not for the modest as Master bath opens up on driveway with no curtain, shower door or toilet door! Negative side, a few quirky things about the house. The location is not very desirable. Route de la Filatte is a wonderful stretch and many beautiful homes in this area. Unfortunately, this one sits at the edge of town, and the public bike path runs the length of the property. It is noisy and public. We even had a couple of instances where very loud (drunk?) young people on bikes rode through at 1-3am and woke everyone up.This is a very expensive property on a relative basis. Sleeps 16 but feels at capacity with 10 people. Expectations were therefore very high and that led to disappointment. More disappointing, we arrived at the house, and it felt like nobody had been there since 2017. We spent the better part of the first 4-5 hours sweeping, removing spider webs, hosing and washing tables, ping pong, outdoor seating areas. Beds covered in dead bugs and feces from mice. The "bunk room" smelled strongly of urine. Onward to the kitchen and we found everything was so dirty that we couldn't cook the first night and had to eat out. Pots, pans, plates and flatware were all in drawers and cabinets but caked in grime and food residue. We spent a good part of the second day washing everything by hand and wiping the dust from shelves and cabinets. We were left with a garbage can full of old trash which didn't smell good. It was during the 2nd day clean up of the kitchen that we discovered the dishwasher didn't work. This explained why everything was so dirty but meant we were 2 families with five 5 and no dishwasher. Perishables from first day shop had to be thrown out. Fortunately, refrigerator self-repaired. But then water main to the house burst. TV never worked (no World Cup!!). Stay was a disaster. Complete rip off. Owner did what she could from afar. But we spent too much of our vacation inconvenienced and dealing with service people.
