Acomodação muito boa. Localização excelente e muito próximo ao mar. Perfeito.
Hemos pasado 5 dias muy comodos en la casa de Gabriel. La ubicacion tenia justamente la tranquilidad que buscabamos. Tanto la recepcion como los servicios y amenities eran exactamente lo publicado. De volver a la ciudad, sin dudas buscariamos nuevamente este departamento.
Gabriel was very accommodating and responsive. The air conditioning in the room went out and we contacted him ASAP - he confirmed with the hotel and got back to us to let us know the hotel was working on the issue.
The room was just as described and came with enough bath and beach towels for 5 people. The beach was less than 100 feet from the pool, which had a great tiki bar.
The only issue was cell phone service, which you need to connect to wifi to have. Also, the shower drained very slowly, which might have been because of how many people were using it in a short amount of time.
This was first Airbnb rental, and we were somewhat disappointed at our experience. This was primarily because the apartment's description and photos were not as forthright about its problems/issues as we think they should have been. Some examples of things that decreased our satisfaction included:
--very, very creaky and not very comfortable beds that made it quite difficult to sleep at night
-- creaky bathroom door that woke us up at night (which the owner refused to oil the next day when I contacted him about it)
-- while the apt is "facing the ocean" according to the description, you can't actually see the ocean from it only a tar covered roof
--no shampoo available as was advertised
-- cell phone service in the apt that did not work unless you were next to the modum
-- an antiseptic smell in the apt at all times (though you get used to it) and one morning the smell of smoke in the apt that may have seeped through one of the vents from another apt
-- lack of basic instruction on how to get internet access, turn on the induction burner, etc, requiring us to call or email the owner
On the other hand, the apt was reasonably priced, included free parking, and was well located.
Really enjoyed the room! We were only here for a night but the location is excellent, the place is attractive, the bedroom is ocean front so we left the windows open at night and woke up to the sound of the waves crashing. Place is stocked with everything you could need and the building amenities provide added convenience.
Check-in to check-out was a breeze! I would absolutely use Gabriel's services again!
