A few things we’d like to reply to with regards to your review:
-You were told of areas of the beach where the reefs are covered by sandbanks. Where you decided to go is not something we can control.
-The fish tank you are referring to has constantly circulating fresh water and is carefully maintained as it is the home of a healthy culture we harvest by the name of Spirulina. There are no mosquitoes growing in this tank.
-Unlike dogs, cats don’t’ “constantly” approach people for affection and our cat is the same, even more so.
-The apartment is completely private with its own private patio, and no it is not a separate structure.
-Unfortunately we have dealt with theft and loss of possessions so taking inventory is a precaution to avoid issues afterwards.
-When you arrived, you asked if you could have 5 women over for your birthday. One of the house rules listed online is that we do not allow parties or events, but as you were already here and it was your birthday we said okay – With the understanding that it would be a quiet get together of 5 women. Your guests didn’t arrive until late and there were far more than 5 people, and they were many men with a few ladies scattered in the group.
- Finally after hours of exuberant activity on the side of the patio of the main house, Alexandra went down to the group, not stomping, put her head outside the door – didn’t even go outside onto the patio, and asked them quietly to “please keep it down” as it had been a long day and left it at that. It was well after midnight by this time. Our doors are heavy as they are made of hardwood, so a bit of a tug is necessary to close them properly – This does not equate to slamming the door, which Alexandra did not do. You were not even with this group so your accusations about Alexandra are not valid.
-After another half hour of or so of it continuing, Juliette went to the apartment to talk with you and found even more people in the apartment in addition to the crowd on the patio. You told Juliette that earlier, you had also asked your friends across by the main part of the house to come over to the apartment side, but they didn’t.
-The photos on the website show what the apartment looks like. It is a new structure and is not dirty by any means – it is aired and cleaned, and linens are washed and replaced with each guest. There is also an extra set of clean linens in the closet for the guests to use if necessary. I hope your rash goes away and whatever is causing it is found.
- After you checked out, there were beer bottle caps strewn out on different parts of the lawn which we had to pick up. You also broke the hook on one of our doors but made no mention of this in your review, nor the fact that you was excused from paying for the repair.
- This isn’t a party pad, it is a home. If it had in fact been the 5 women as you had said, things would have happened differently. The party was held on the first night and you still stayed again the second day and night with friends over without stating you had any problems or that you wished to leave. We are sorry you were embarrassed, as it wasn’t you yourself making the noise causing us to come out.
