In November we rented Heart To Heart. You could never know the meaning of filthy until you rent this cabin. Dust , cobwebs, DIRTY, SWEATY LINENS ON THE BEDS, critters in the attic and the walls, the walls were covered with ladybugs, the floors were covered with dead ladybugs and dead roaches. The kitchen counter tops were dirty and sticky, the kitchen floor was FILTHY, sticky, with. Trash all over it. We were there for 9 (NINE) nights, there was 1 1/4 roll of toilet tissue in each bath, one packet of soap for the dishwasher, NO liquid soap. You could right your name on every piece of furniture in this cabin. Going to set the table for dinner one night, only to face this HUGE lizard in the middle of the table, that took us forever to catch.
The next morn inning when we stopped by the office to get these things a handled we were told that 1. The owners don't have an extermination agreement, so they have to get permission, 2. Ladybugs are an "Endangered Species" and there is a FEDERAL LAW prohibiting them from doing anything to get rid of them, NOR can we kill or spray them!! 3. That the owner only allows 1 1/2 rolls of toilet tissue per bathroom per rental agreement, no matter how long and if we need more, we will have to purchase it, the same with dish soap and dishwasher soap packets. 4. It took them two days to get the Critter Man out to put out traps and cover huge holes where squirrels were coming into the attic at night.
THERE IS NO SUCH FEDERAL LAW PROTECTING THE LADYBUG!! AND, THEY ARE FAR FROM BEING AN ENDANGERED SPECIES, DOGWOOD REALTY JUST COULDN NOTBE BOTHERED!!
The big kicker was that they couldn't refund us our money, didn't have anything else in the same price range, but could move us to another cabin and WE COULD PAY THE DIFFERENCE!!! After all we had gone thru with them!!
I WOULD GIVE ANYTHING TO KNOW WHO THE OWNERS OF THE CABIN ARE!! I just don' t think the owners know it is being ignored this way!
