Anyarentals.com Complaint - BAD APARTMENT RENTAL EXPERIENCE

Review by skijames on 2006-09-28
PARK CITY, UTAH -- I HAD A RECENT BAD EXPERIENCE RENTING WHAT IS ADVERTISED AS A HIGHER-END CONDO IN ST. PETERSBURG RUSSIA. THE RENTING AGENCY AND CONDO OWNER, ANYARENTALS.COM,(SALT LAKE CITY,UTAH) ADVERTISES THIS CONDO ON VRBO.COM AS A 2 BEDROOM, 1 BATH. IT IS ACTUALLY ONLY A 1 BEDROOM WITH 2 RIDICULOUS LOFTS. IT IS IN MY OPINION A DUMP.
FORGETTING THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE TO ENTER THROUGH A DARK FILTHY UNLIT ALLEY, THE HALLWAYS ARE DIRTY: THEY ARE PRACTICALLY IMPASSABLE BECAUSE OF TOYS, SACKS OF CONCRETE AND JUNK. THE APARTMENT IS DEPLORABLE. IT SMELLS AND IS INFESTED WITH COCKROACHES. THE BED IS DESCRIBED AS A NEW ONE PURCHASED FROM A MARRIOTT BEDDING SUPPLIER. PERHAPS IT WAS PURCHASED USED. TO TAKE A SHOWER YOU MUST ENDURE THE STINK OF ROTTEN EGGS. YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT THE DESCRIPTION ON THE WEBSITE. YOU WOULD THINK YOU WERE RENTING A BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT.
I CAN GO ON AND ON ABOUT HOW BAD THE PLACE IS. THE ONLY THING THAT IS TRUE IS THE GOOD LOCATION. UNFORTUNATELY THAT WAS NOT ENOUGH TO KEEP ME THERE. DUE TO THE CONDITION I WAS FORCED TO MOVE OUT AFTER THE FIRST NIGHT. WE WOULD HAVE GONE IMMEDIATELY BUT COULD NOT FIND A HOTEL WITH 2 ROOMS AVAILABLE. IT REALLY RUINED THE TRIP AS WELL AS CAUSING ME EMBARASSMENT SINCE I HAD 2 INVITED GUESTS.
I REQUESTED A REFUND BUT MY REQUEST WAS REJECTED.
NOBODY SHOULD HAVE TO BE RIPPED OFF LIKE I WAS.

Didn't you look at the proper prior to renting it? If not, it's your bad.

Sorry...that was property. My fingers have been taking shortcuts lately.

I it enter too quickly before. We rented an apt in St. Petersburg, Russia and some of what skijames said was true for this one too - enter through an alley but the apartment itself was fine. I'm sorry skijames had such a bad experience with theirs. But as far as looking at the property first, the best you can do renting from faraway is seeing some little pictures on the Internet which do not really tell the whole story.

WE HAD PHOTOS. THEY JUST LEFT OUT THE BAD STUFF. KEEP IN MIND THAT THEY OWNER LIVES IN UTAH AND FULLY UNDERSTANDS WHAT AMERICANS EXPECT. SHE IS A REAL ESTATE AGENT IN SALT LAKE CITY. CHECK OUT WWW.ANYARENTS.COM AND READ THE DESCRIPTION.

Russia is notoriously corrupt. Maybe you didn't grease the right palms?
