100% on location/grocery stores. We once did a house sit where we learned this the hard way, even though we’d asked about transportation and even grocery stores. The owner assured us that they were next to a train station w/ grocery stores were nearby. Turns out the grocery store was in town a few miles away. Even if we took the train one stop to the town, it was a 20 min, uphill (1 way) walk to the grocery store. They must have always driven, making it seem close
We did another sit listed as in New York City and it was actually 1.5 hour train ride out of the city and you needed a car to get to the train station. Being from the area, I know it well and calling that NYC is not even a huge stretch, it’s just not accurate lol. The couple was very sweet and we got all the details before agreeing, but someone not familiar w/ the area or who didn’t ask those questions would’ve been frustrated.
In both these instances, I’m sure that the owners were not intentionally trying to misrepresent the situation or mislead anyone. I’m not trying to point fingers at all, just saying that no questions is too many! And if any owners are reading, to be super detailed in the listing as to the location
