Hello Dag, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am pleased that you liked the villa and the location.
I am of course very sorry that some aspects of your stay did not meet your expectations, but I am upset that you describe me as being rude, and also rather bewildered at your negativity. I have reviewed my emails to you in response to the issues you raised during your stay, and in each one I can see nothing I said that could possibly be considered rude. All I did was to give you the facts, which I will repeat below.
I advised you that I subscribe to the highest speed internet service that is available to me. According to several experts I have spoken to, wifi speeds will slow down if numerous devices are connected at the same time, especially if some of them are engaged in high data usage activities.
Regarding the air conditioning, our management company called out a technician to check the system, and he confirmed that it was in perfect working order. He did however observe that during his visit you had the patio doors open. As mentioned in the information sent you before your arrival, and as I reminded you in a reply to one of your emails, the air conditioning system at the villa is designed to shut down if any doors are left open, and will re-start once these are closed. You will appreciate that letting hot air from outside into the house is not a good idea, as hot air rises and will of course make the upstairs warmer than it should be.
You did not mention previously that on occasions you had problems accessing the gated community and I am sorry to hear that. Security can sometimes cause complications in our everyday lives, but it is an unfortunate necessity of the times we live in, and I am sure you felt safer renting a home in a community where access is monitored, rather than on a non-gated community where people can come and go as they please.
Finally, if you take a look at other reviews of my villa on this site, and also on VRBO and Owners Direct, you will see they are all very complimentary, as is verified by the number of repeat bookings I receive.
Once again Dag, thank you for your complimentary remarks about the villa and its location, and I trust the above has answered the points raised in your review of the property.
