This is a beautiful apartment, conveniently located, in a great neighborhood, but it is not set-up for rentals and is not actually air conditioned. There were no cooking tools, no microwave (forget to check when renting), no kettle, no basic spices (not even salt and pepper), no dish soap, no sponge or brush to wash dishes. During our 43-hour stay, with the air conditioner on turbo fan and set to 16 C (61 F), the coolest it ever got was 26.5 (80 F). Our contact argued with me that I didn't know how to operate a thermostat, but that is not the case. I reported the problem our first evening there, but no one ever showed up to investigate or repair. There is a washing machine, but you can't wash clothes and have internet at the same time, because they use the same plug and there's no three-way adapter.
This place is not actually managed by the owner, it is run by a company called SweetStay. Even though I bought $1,500 in damage insurance, they demanded access to my checking account or credit card before they would give me check-in information. I didn't have contact information to check in until 3 hours before check-in. I own a VRBO property and would be ashamed for our guests to have this kind of experience. I really seams dishonest of VRBO to not tell you that you have to deal with a third-party management company.
