We were very disappointed with this booking! We settled the whole payment 3 weeks prior our travel date and he responded right away with the check in details so I expected that we would have a cozy stay in his place. I even asked him if we could check in an hour earlier as my aunt's flight will arrive at 11am. he said to message him a day before because he will still prepare the place. I didn't insist that anyways.
When we arrived at the condo and went directly to the lobby where we were supposed to meet him, he wasn't there. The reception also checked for our authorization but there was nothing. They gave me his number and I called, he said that the unit owner was occupying the unit that we were supposed to stay and that he transferred us to another unit, in a different bldg - if thats the case, then why did he not inform the owner of our stay/rent that was already booked 3 weeks ago, right? Still, we patiently carried all our belongings to the other bldg.
When we arrived there, my name in the list of occupants was only in pen together with few names not familiar to me. So we weren't still allowed to enter the unit. I pity my aunt who wants to rest already after a long flight but still patiently waited. We waited for 2 hours in the lobby for the permit to be approved. He apologized thru a text message though.
When we arrived at the unit, I was expecting a kitchen where we could cook even a light meal for dinner as we already bought groceries. But the kitchen just had 2 plates, 1 cup, 1 pot, 1 pan and a water heater. I specifically asked about things in the kitchen prior to booking and he said that it was complete. but not even spoon and fork around.
I texted him again, and told me that he'll be sending my requests later. But until the time we're checking out, nothing came!Hours before we checked out, we would like to give him another chance so I asked him to come personally before we leave as we will be needing another place to stay again by early next month (yes, I am that forgiving! lol) but he never responded! The last message I received from him was when he told me that he would send the kitchen tools. That's it!
So I guess, you'll understand if I would not recommend this to anyone. Very disappointing!
