Only $200 per night, bunnies!

If I could have seen this place in person before my arrival I would have cancelled my reservation immediately. Given some of the other reviews, I expected some quirkiness but I was not prepared for how disgusting the carpet and furniture was in person. There is not a single area of carpeting that is not stained and gross. All of the living room and dining room furniture is white – correction, WAS white – what is not stained is ripped. It seems that someone with a love for orange soda – but an unfortunate case of the shakes – has wandered by every carpeted surface and seating area (and brought along their dog with a bladder infection). Next problem? The lighting. There is not a single set of lights in this place that does not have a burned out bulb. In some areas, ALL bulbs are burned out. The master bedroom and lower bedroom are controlled by a separate thermostat that seems impervious to user input. On our third night when the heat decided to stop working I spent 15 minutes shivering in the cold hallway looking up youtube videos on how to use the thermostat. No amount of overrides or scheduled heat settings got this thing to work. After three cold nights it suddenly came back on the last night at full blast. There are plenty of notes about what tea you can and can’t use in the house but no directions on how to control the temperature – thanks. [Host could not figure it out either – it is not that we are thermostat-challenged] More? The downstairs bedroom’s shower is not powerful enough for a bald man to wash his hair so we had to share the master shower. There is zero privacy between the shower and the room so we had to vacate when others showered. The master bath has a double vanity but the hot water does not work on one side and the cold does not work on the other. When pulling the stool out to sit at the vanity mirror the leg fell off. This is the tale of this house – every single thing has some problem. Still more? Oh yes. The TV was taken away “because the cable was shut off” according to the host. The box for the smart TV is still in the garage and shows that it could have connected to the wifi for things like Netflix. Did we come to watch TV? No. Would we have like to use it for the kids to watch a movie at night? Yes. Don’t list it in the ad if it is gone! There is no microwave. There is barely any light in the kitchen. The kitchen counter is broken. The blender is broken. There are missing cabinet doors. The reality of the five bedrooms: 1) Master is large and may be the cleanest area 2) Downstairs is coldest and has the dirtiest carpet 3) A full bed shoved into a…
Poor Dean was still raging away when he reached the word limit! Goodness, what did this guy expect? A burro and her boyfriend had been inhabiting the house.

Thanks to Melting Marionette for the alert!
Update: Our ineffable Grifty did a bit of digging and discovered that the shady Justin is actually a property manager. In addition to Donk’s shithole, he appears to be managing a few other feelthy stalls. So, our burro renegotiated her lease for a second year and then took off for Ubud, planning on earning her income by renting out Collinwood? Short-term and long-term subletters?! Do the owners know what’s up? Is this even legal? Should someone contact AirBNB or HomeAway? Should someone alert Peter Baugher so that it doesn’t come as a surprise when his beast of burden gets sued again? It’s worrisome!
