I am very surprised to learn that you thought the photos were not representative of what the place looks like. I took all the photos myself with the camera on my phone and I did not enhance anything. All my reviews given by guests of the other places I am hosting have mentioned how accurate my photos are. There is not a single thing added or subtracted from the photos posted, so your statement of “We found the photos not very representative of the place inside” is very misleading to future guests. If you are a guest reading this review, please take some time to read all my other reviews for the other places I am hosting. This will hopefully give you an indication of the type of host I am and how I offer the exact place as the photos displayed. I really want to be transparent and mention that this guest communicated in her private feedback that these items caused her disappointment: the handles on the kitchen cabinets were outdated, the covers on the electrical outlet, a hole by the socket and some tiles in the bathroom.
After reading your review and your personal feedback, it is very apparent that you were expecting a brand new condo. I am sorry this place did not meet up to your expectations of a newly renovated condo. We did not claim to be a new condo so we are quite surprised with your review. It is very unfortunate that you did not ask the relevant questions that mattered to you before booking this place….like what is the condition of handles on the cabinets or the cover plates for the outlets, etc…. I would highly recommend that you ask hosts about the condition of their place before you book so there won’t be any disappointment on your end in the future. Since a vacation is a treat and something to look forward to once or twice a year….you might want to pay a little extra money to get the accommodation that won’t leave you disappointed if those types of details are important to you.
The listing has been amended to state that not everything is new in this place so hopefully there will be no misunderstandings with future guests. Thank you for your constructive feedback which allows those concerns to be addressed in the listing details so no other guests like yourself will be disappointed.
We are really happy to hear that the pool and BBQ area met your expectations. That means a lot to us since your level of expectations is extremely high. =)
