This is the 4th large VRBO home I've stayed in and I was very disappointed.
You might want to ask these questions before you book:
Has basic cleaning been done on the dirty doors, light switches, toilet bases and showers?
Have the refrigerator shelves been cleaned of the mold/mildew?
Have the oven and outdoor grill been cleaned of old grease and old aluminum foil?
Have the moldy coffee (from previous guests) grounds been removed?
Have the old well-used sponges and scrubbies left at the kitchen sink been replaced with unopened new ones?
Can any of the 3 garage doors be opened with the remote or must someone be inside the garage continously holding the button down in order for the 1 working door be opened?
Do either of the 2 icemakers work or are they still broken? (and don't believe them when they tell you they will deliver ice every day to make up for it)
Has the master bed mattress been replaced? (because it is BAD. See previous guests comments)
Are there any pool floats available that are not ripped or with holes? (unusable ones are tossed in pool shed)
Is the water trap on the pool deck still covered with a board? (must be careful to step over)
Does the pool still leak and have the hose in it, continously adding water? (another thing that must be stepped over)
Has the pool ladder been replaced (broken one is tossed in pool shed)
Has the pool hand railing been reattached to the deck or does it still swing freely when grabbed?
Have the pool shed doors been fixed enough so they close - and don't have to be tied together with a rope? (Also, they said they'd be out every day to clean the pool. That didn't happen. We did it ourselves.)
Has the broken towel rack in upstairs bath been repaired (the handles were just pushed together- not good enough!)
Has the nightstand door been repaired or is it still just pushed under the nightstand? (see Stan July 2020)
Are half of the windows still cloudy (seals are obviously broken) or have they been replaced?
Has some basic picking up of the area been done, like all the broken boards and old greasy grill tops thrown on the grass next to the grill? Or the balloon pieces (guessing from the last guests) on the pool deck? Or all the dead rose bushes along the driveway? Or the 10 pots on the decks with dead or dying plants?
Is the walkway down to the river still wonky with the loose boards?
There’s more, but I’m out of space.
