What a disappointment!!

Unfortunately this condo was not what we had expected...at all!!!! Yes it was brought to our attention that we would need earplugs because of the music which played while we slept, but we were not prepared for the noise commencing at 4:00 in the afternoon so you could not enjoy any part of the late afternoon or early evening in the condo. In addition to the noise the unit is very run down. Everything is old including all of the appliances, mattresses, bedding etc. and SMELLS old!!!! There is a constant scent of must. The bathrooms both need a full renovation from the mould in the cracking grout to the lighting which doesn't work. Oh yah, and dont forget the showers which are never hot and the two huge visiting cockroaches we had to attend to. Really upsetting to arrive somewhere like this when you've been looking forward to your holiday for so long. It wasn't an inexpensive condo to rent and the owner was not willing to compensate us at all.
It sounds like we were there for a month but after two nights we left and went to a nearby hotel (which cost us another $1200) for the remainder of our visit. What a breath of fresh air....clean, quiet and comfortable.
Owner's Response: This nothing short of retaliation for me not wanting to compensate these travelers for their stay.
They arrived on New Years Eve. My home is in the center of town.. in the middle of everything that is happening.. and It is noisy at night . I always inform all prospective renters of this situation. This was also NEW YEARS EVE with festivities going on all day and all through the night..These travelers were informed of this well before their stay. They had issues with the noise and left after a couple days and wanted their money returned. The people that stay here love that is in in the center of everything.. Walking out of their door not only to restaurants,galleries,night clubs.. right at your feet.. but a view of the bay that is unbeatable !
There are absolutely no insects of any kind.. the furniture, art, and decor is spectacular and the condo has been remodeled in the last few years. I have daily maid cleaning and it is spotless ! I have no issues what so ever with the water temperature.The bedding and appliances are modern and in perfect condition.I am very sincere and concerned about my house guests, check in on them and tell them to call or email me if they need anything at all.
The reviews that are here will show you my home is always extremely clean and pretty much immaculate..please read them..look at my photos and judge for yourself !
