Karen Camille Tisdale of Trussville, Alabama:
This review is factually inaccurate on every point.
1. It purports to be the first review of the stay, and that it was written reluctantly, but in fact it is the fourth review for one and the same stay in September 2016. The first review gave the apartment 3 stars, and latter reviews changed to 2 and now to 1 star.
2. Each of the claims about the stay are inventions (bed bugs; a theft; complaints to us about these things; hiring lawyers). The clearest evidence of this is that these claims have been made for the first time in this review, and were not mentioned in any of the other reviews, or the many emails that were sent to us privately after the stay.
3. The reader should know that we have received dozens of abusive messages from this visitor, each with new, invented claims, and we were left with no choice but to pass the messages to Tripadvisor, so that other owners are protected against such a situation.
