This was not a great experience. The host had no idea I was coming (blamed it on VRBO not sending him a reminder). He actually had no idea I was coming until I called when I was on the way, asking how I was supposed to get in. Fortunately he was able to scramble and get the sheets changed before I got there since the last guest had only recently left. In general, the place was not clean. I'm not at all a neat-freak; it had clean sheets and was tidy, but overall it seemed like a bachelor pad that had been vacuumed before the owner stepped out for a few days so it could be rented. Sticky shelves, odd, mismatched utensils, strange things in the cabinets, etc.
The heat was not working. Host said was because it had been summer and the heat had been turned off. He sent the neighbor over to turn it on. Unfortunately, the neighbor didn't have the right key, so couldn't get in to turn it on. His solution? He was going to mail the key to the neighbor - which would take days to get there. It was cold at night, and the house was frigid when I got there. Host suggested I go down to the store and buy some duraflame logs to heat the house - no offer to credit me for them - just go buy them. Oh, and I should just use the portable heater in the bedroom.
There is no book that tells you how things work. Specifically, I couldn't figure out how to connect to the WiFi until the day after I arrived when the host finally answered a text I sent asking about it. I was working while there, so this was a real problem. Fortunately there was enough cell service for me to use my phones hotspot.
The description of the place says it's two bedrooms. It's not. Just a single, small bedroom downstairs. That was fine in this case since it was just me, but beware!
Truly, it seemed like a place someone lives and just opportunistically steps out when someone decides to rent it. There was even a car parked in the yard that the owner just leaves there.
I changed my flight and left half-way through my rental period, knowing I wouldn't get any money back.
