Not quite sure if this is the correct page for this post so if not please redirect....
I just wanted to post to all the followers our experience.
Last week we rented a House from Garden City Realty and 3 days into our stay found some Bedbugs in one of the rooms. We managed to catch one of them and bag it up. Being completely freaked out we quickly bagged our stuff and in record time gathered up everything and went down to the Garden City Offices. As discretely as possible we ask to speak with Dennis the manager. We told our story and gave him the bagged critter. There was zero chance of us staying another day in our rental and he seemed non committal as to the outcome. As a group we decided to just come home. On the chance we had eggs or anything else with us we felt this was unfair to subject another place to the bugs. Long story short... The Homeowner and Garden City have just informed us that we will be receiving zero compensation for lost time and for the laundering we incurred as per our exterminators. I hope anyone else who considers renting through Garden City finds this post helpful...

You should now write them and include a link to this topic and also post on Trip advisor and include that link. Let them know that their refusal to compensate you has forced you to warn others and supply the links.
