- Very Good
Apartment was freezing cold when we arrived and the wifi and washing machine didn't work for the duration. Broken child cot provided and no bulbs in lamps in master bedroom. After 4 days the power went off and no-one was contactable to help. It turned out that we had to manually top up the electricity and pay for it ourselves (£20 top-up lasted less than 24 hours). I paid £50 toward electricity over our 7 night stay which I still haven't been reimbursed for! Ballycastle was beautiful and the apartment was very clean and well appointed but unfortunately I wouldn't recommend to a friend due to the hidden charges and broken amenities!
Owner's reply: James & his family booked to stay in our apartment over Christmas. In view of this I visited the apartment 2 days before their arrival & made sure the apartment was festively decorated & left a welcome gift of Wine, chocolates & biscuits . Prior to James arrival I sent our standard welcome email, detailing the fact that the electricity was metered & also details of how to top up meter. These details are also available on the Tripadvisor description of our apartment. I had also mentioned in my communication that the heating was underfloor & tended to use a lot of electricity so they may wish to switch it off when not in the apartment. There are also, detailed written instructions in the apartment detailing how to top up the electricity. There is also an extremely efficient electric stove heater which heats the living area very efficiently. With regard to the washing machine when I visited the apartment prior to James arrival I noted the machine was not working. I was unable to get someone to repair it at such short notice however my Property Manager who lives locally kindly offered to collect, wash & return any laundry James & his family required during their stay. This information was also sent to James prior to his arrival. The problem with the Wifi was completely out of our control & has now been repaired by BT... however unfortunately due to the holiday period a BT engineer was not available during James stay. James contacted me on December 27 via email detailing his dissatisfaction regarding the electricity/heating. This was the first contact I had from him. I responded immediately, apologised & told him that I would pay for an electricity top up (£30), which I did as a good will gesture . I did not receive any response from James acknowledging my email despite sending two further emails . I did however receive, on January 2 2018 a curt email from James demanding I pay him £70 to reimburse him for the electricity he used during his stay.( I note in review above he states it was £50 ) I take my role as a host very seriously & have recently achieved Superhost status on Airbnb for this apartment . All guests receive a welcome email prior to arrival in Ballycastle, clearly outlining all information required including detailed instructions regarding the electricity. This info is also clearly stated on all rental websites. It is unfortunate that James was dissatisfied with his stay at our apartment. We wish him & his family a Happy & Peaceful New Year!
