Safety Issues
First, the good: -Cute house and overall very clean (except for shower curtain) -Good location, walking distance to shops and restaurants -Clean, well appointed kitchen and large table -Very comfortable beds with nice linen Disappointed with the following: - No air conditioning! It was 85-90 all weekend, very hot & stuffy in the house. - Shower curtain had mold all along the edge. Gross. - The windows were not screened so it was a safety & security hazard to leave the windows open as we have a young child and a puppy. Also lets flies in. - Very steep flight of steps to the second level where the bedrooms are. The bottom landing is the same color paint as the steps so it was hard to distinguish where the steps ended. We slipped and fell 3x. Also was difficult for mother-in-law w/ cane to go up/down the stairs. -The fenced-in backyard was misrepresented as our own backyard, when in fact it is shared by the building next door which is an engineering/construction business. They were doing work on their property so their gate was open 2 of the 3 days we were there. This defeats the purpose of having a fenced in backyard to let our puppy roam freely and potty. Had to leash her just to let her out. The listing does not indicate that you are sharing the yard and have no control over the other gate. -Our view outside our windows was that of construction equipment owned by the nextdoor business. They ran their equipment at 8:30 am every day. Not the tranquil, relaxing environment I thought I was getting when I booked this house! We followed all of Tahoe GetAway's long list of rules for booking, pre-payment, providing ID, check-in and check-out. In return I expect accurate descriptions & full disclosures of all the items I outlined above. I would not have booked this property had I known there was no a/c, the fenced-in yard was not completely secure, and that the rooms were in the attic with windows that did not have screens.
