poorly equiped and uncomfortable

  • 1 of 5

The apartment is the top floor of a three section home, the lower units are occupied permanently, the residents are quite friendly. Location is mixed residential farming (bananas). There is a sports/recreation facility next door. We enjoyed walking around the neighbourhood and talking to some of the residents.

The apartment has a kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms with showers. Well built building, all floors are very nicely tiled. The description of the apartment lists a microwave, hair dryer, dvd/cd player, lounge chairs none of these items were present. Very inadequate utensils, poor quality pots etc in the kitchen, no table knives, no can opener, no bottle opener no iron or board. Had to keep all food in the fridge due to ants. All the shower doors are difficult to close (no wheels on the track).

This is the poorest equipped facility that we have ever rented.

It may sleep four but there are only two uncomfortable chairs (no couch) and a coffee table in the living room. The living room furniture is consistent with the kitchen equipment, poor quality. The chairs are upholstered but are just a wooden platform with a foam cushion.

The dining area described as having seating for 8 does not have 8 chairs.

The balconies accessible from the main room and kitchen are separate and about 2ft wide. The kitchen door was very difficult to open. The “Penthouse Terrace” is not accessible from the unit you have to go out the front door and around the side of the building then up steps.

The rental agent did not respond to emails after we had paid. The lack of response to emails concerned us, we contacted VRBO by phone (they would not let us cancel) before we finally got a response. Never met the agent, we were directed/led to the apartment by a person who did not speak English well, she said that Ezequiel (the agent) was the English speaker. The meeting spot is on the side of a traffic circle, the address of the building was never provided. The unit is quite easy to get to.

Very unfortunate, this apartment, with little effort, could be quite nice and comfortable, but it is not.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We will take in consideration and we will improve as soon as possible. Also please when you rent a private house try to be at home to speak with the host as we been there several times and nobody were there, so we cannot solve the issues if the guest not seriously explain things. The storage in the apartment is full of extra equipment with the key and instructions in paper. Also the access to the terrace key instructions. Is very easy to write professional high standards or 5 stars hotel luxurious requests things without wait for us to show solutions.
