BELOW AVERAGE Apartment/ Owner lack some customer service and rental standard on this visit
I am a mature adult, not perfect and do not expect perfection. I have rented many houses in the past 8 years in this area. I am not trying to bash this apartment or owner. I believe they are new to this business and do not have the same minimum standards as I. I hope they will improve if they continue to rent on VRBO. There low fee will attract however the fee is reflected in the standards and attention to detail that I believe it takes to provide clean, safe and satisfactory rental accommodations. I found the apartment not be as it was advertised. Owners are adding on to there home and converting the basement to rental properties. The entrance is around the side of the house. I arrived to a stone path with overgrown grass around the house and in front of the entrance . There was a lot of construction debris next to my entrance which was moved after I complained of a strong smell. The apartment the first couple of days smelled of paint and construction. The owner stated the smell was from the perfume of the previous renter. The outside light bulbs were both not working. That side of the house was not kept up My room's closet was not finished, had no hanger poll and light. I was given one small pillow. The bedding looked like extras from the house. There was no dresser to unpack in either room. The other room had 2 blowup. There was a wood futon sofa and coffee table for some unknown reason. Again, maybe extra furniture from the house to fill the space. The TV did NOT have cable. Internet station was the only station that worked. I could not watch Internet many times due to too many users in the house. There was no heat and the AC was attached to the main house and had to text each time I wanted it on. The laundry, bathroom, kitchen and appliances are new and working however a lot of small things were not done or after thoughts. Utensils were in a big plastic cup instead of a $3 plastic utensils holder in the new drawer. Wall lights had no covers. There was no smoke alarm, it was missing from the ceiling. Owner lists on other websites too. His cleaning fee is $10 less there and on VRBO he charged $33 for a heater when there is no heat. When texted about the differences he told me I was getting a good deal and he did not want to discuss it. Owner told me that his neighbors were complaining about my 2018 truck parked in his driveway. Place is set up for long term. Owner means well but misses the mark. Please ask questions before renting.
