This is the first negative review I write.
To put things into perspective, we were traveling with a 11 month old baby this time and paid extra attention to details.
The property was very humid (we found Finish dishwasher tablets with mold). The roof was leaking with visible water stains. There were cockroaches under the couch (had to move it a bit because water was dripping on it). Painting particles falling from the roof (it's visible particularly on the kitchen table) and kitchen ventilation hood. The toilet brushes had feces on them. There are open dirty trash bins outside with visibly sick cats living in
them that walk around the house, the terrace etc. Dishwasher didn't work & gave electrical shocks. The furniture of both front balconies are very rusty. No cleaning products (other than water) seemed to have been used or was provided.
While the host suggested to fix these issues immediately, the nature of the issues was such that they couldn't have been fixed immediately. For instance, when it comes to the painting, not only is exhalation of painting fumes unhealthy and potentially dangerous for a baby, it would take at least 4 days to paint a house/roof of that size.
The property is guarded, but mind you the guards are underpaid (we asked) and aren't provided any roof at all.
There was running water only a small portion of the day, but this was a local issue, not related to the property.
We ended up canceling and eventually found a great property not far from this one, where the community keeps the streets in a good state and clean, trash bins are closed, and the guards are provided a roof.
Nevertheless, Jules was prompt to answer all our inquiries. This property could be great given some extra care.
