Hummingbird House — Cottage rental scam/unsafe
The cottage rental is a scam! Warning! My husband and I rented the cottage for a two night stay in late July. The cottage web site misrepresented the fact that there is air-conditioning (the owner placed a filthy unsafe faulty wired air conditioner in the home on the day of arrival). The microwave and air conditioner was faulty wired together and would kick out if one tried to use either. One had to turn the air conditioner on with the rusty pliers provided! Also, both smoke detectors had been disabled before our arrival. The bathroom and kitchen areas were filthy. Garbage left in bathroom. Food remnants in kitchen sink. The high definition flat screen tv is the size of a laptop computer screen tv propped up on a bench. The chimenea (outdoor fireplace) is not on the premises. Nothing as pictured. The outside is filled with insects because the property is not maintained. The owner states that she accepts kids and dogs. However, she later claimed that our dogs scratched the door (which they did not do because they were crated and with us). She accused us of this and stopped payment on our security deposit over a week after we left and others had stayed immediately upon our departure! Please be careful. This is not a place you want to bring your children or pets!
