Response from Sarah:

Denis's review is, I think, unfortunately very misleading. We have been hosting with airbnb for nearly two years now and have made very sure that we have given accurate details on the location of our house and the exact distances to the peninsula and town. We have been very clear about all details concerning the house and its location. Dennis lived in Dar (on the peninsula) for two years previous to his short stay with us. It does seem a little odd that he chose to stay 16km away from his office, knowing very well the roads and possible traffic jams in rush hour. I advised him against traveling around Dar between 6 and 8 . He decided he would stay anyway. We work on the peninsula and drive in every day to Slipway at 8.15am and return home at around 6pm. We often use several easy short cuts and can reach the peninsula within 25/30 minutes. Rain is of course a difficult time for every one using the roads in Dar, and can be a problem. Mbezi is not at all remote, on the contrary, it is becoming a very fashionable place to live, a perfect place to get away from the crowded peninsula. All of our previous guests have been very happy with our location and the travel times to and from the airport, peninsula and other places of interest. Please do read their reviews.

Apart from his major issue with travel, Denis was a little difficult from the onset. He expected discounts from our very reliable and fair taxi driver, having an issue before he set foot in the house. He immediately expected our staff to go shopping for him, before even meeting them, and left no tips. He attempted to extract a discount from me, suggesting that as he is a 48 year old lawyer it would be the correct thing to do. All in all Denis was a Menace!
