"“Beautiful location not so wonderful hosts”"
The view is beautiful but had to leave in the middle of my stay. When I arrived was told that "I don't do bags," in other words don't expect any help. I found the attitude surprising, little did I kno… More
To begin with, my statement about carrying bags was not “I don’t do bags” but rather “I’m sorry but I can’t help you carry them because I have a bad back.” However your perception of my words set the tone for your entire stay. For another example, I encouraged you to try streaming a movie & we were very pleased to discover that it worked well for you! Also, we feel it's common sense to read the "fine print" when booking a house in a sparsely populated area of a foreign country. That said, we endeavor to provide great customer service but we are renting a house, we’re not a hotel.
We do our best to provide a clean, well-functioning house for our guests. When this unexpected problem surfaced we did all we could possibly do ourselves to rectify the situation while reaching out to plumbers which are very scarce in this area. We found two, the second of which was able to correct the problem. In the meantime we offered to move you to another small house on our property on which we receive wonderful reviews, but you felt it wasn’t suitable for you. We also offered you use of the bathroom there which apparently you found offensive. At this point there were no other options remaining to us but to await a repair.
Unfortunately, our entire neighborhood lost their water supply due to a pump failure which took a couple days to resolve while we waited for a technician to arrive from San Jose (3 hours away) with the replacement. No fun for anyone but not something we planned. Sometimes these things just happen. Life truly is more challenging here with few services & conveniences and therefore not for those who require them. It IS a jungle out here!
Regarding the comment on the condo being the same price, I happen to know that they normally charge almost double our rates. I'm sure this was an accommodation considering they're trying to sell you real estate! Our realtor did the same for us in the same complex.
We were happy to refund your money as requested. We’re sorry this property didn’t work out better for you but are glad you found a condominium in a complex that was better suited to your needs.
This is s beautiful property with loads of paved paths through the jungle. We saw as much wildlife from the porch or paths as we have in any national park in Costa Rica. The ocean view from the cinema… More
