Additional Notes

Complaint: We rented a vacation rental by owner from the business referenced in this complaint. The owner describes the property as "contemporary" and defines "contemporary" as "fairly new or renovated homes-cabins with average or above average furnishings and carpeting". Average, above average, furnishings and carpeting are all emphasized by the owner by underlining. The information details three levels of cleaning that can be purchased, in our case the $75 cleaning was waived because we booked by telephone, this is advertised on his website. The owner describes what this covers and states that the cleaning covers 130 items. The next level of clean is supposed done by "professionals" note that this category costs the renter $125, and further states that "This is the only guaranteed cleaning." I don't know if that indicates that even if you paid $75 for cleaning it may or may not get done or the $75 cleaning isn't really going to get the place clean. When I spoke with the owner about the three levels of cleaning he told me that there may be a little dust here and there. That I can live with, but the place was nothing less than filthy. The written information he provides states, "Dislike of your home-cabin does not exempt you from the total charges. We've described your home-cabin EXACTLY as it is". That statement is entirely false. As stated above, this home was beyond filthy. Additionally, many of the ceiling lights were missing the covers, the fan covers in the bathrooms were either missing or had a hole punched through it. The dust was so thick on the heating vents we were afraid to use them for fear of starting a fire. The rugs were extremely stained and/or dirty. The only thing "contemporary" about the furnishings was a leather loveseat and sofa. The TV sat on a broken part of a TV stand which was placed on top of a glass table. This house is not new or renovated nor is it a little dusty. This is false advertisement. I have pictures to verify my complaint.

Desired Settlement: I would like my money back and request the owner stop the deceptive advertising. I think the place may need to be inspected. None of the electrical outlets worked in the master bedroom. The hot tub is located above the living area and the ceiling shows leakage issues. I'm really not sure this place is safe for habitation. I texted the owner about the uncleanliness and offered to provide the photos I took, but he did not respond to my offer. Obviously he is not concerned.
