Very Poor Experience
Our overall experience with GreatPlacesToStay was very poor. When we selected this rental it was advertised as a 1 bedroom, two bath bungalow. There are no bedrooms in this rental. There is one sleeping alcove, and a futon in the living room. Both areas can be closed off with curtains. There is only one bathroom in the rental. Another bathroom is available for use but it is across the back yard and in an entirely separate building. We would not have rented this place if we had known that it is a studio with one bathroom.
In our opinion the rental was neither clean or well maintained. We found very dusty furniture, floors and window blinds. Many of the kitchen utensils were greasy and grimy. The counter top appliances (juicer, etc.) were dusty and spotted with what appeared to be dried on food. The fountain on the front deck was full of dirty water and mosquito larva. We were horrified to find a dead bird in the fountain.
The conditions in the rental were so poor that we did not want to stay there. We notified the owner that we would be finding another place to stay and we asked for a refund. We were offered a gift certificate, which we declined. Eventually we did receive a refund.
This was a very upsetting and disappointing beginning to our vacation. I wish that I had found the YahooTravel reviews before we rented this place.
