this house is so nice and convenience, I could be relax and happy. there is a jacuzzi. I always took a jacuzzi before (website hidden) is very convenient There are a lot of restaurants and shops around the house.
Christian was very patient and attentive and accommodating in working with us pre-arrival with considering a change to our stay which thankfully we didn't end up having to make. Even while dealing with his own travel plans. So while we didn't get to meet him would welcome that opportunity again. He seems like a super host! The condo has a gemreat location in town and in the complex. Opens up to a beautifully landscaped pool and grassy and tree garden park settings. The inside accommodations were just so so, couch was okay, bed area was small and not roomy at all the bathroom area was for sure the least positive thing for this listing. It could use some work which could turn this entire place into a real gem I'm the future and it would be worth for sure. Lots of potential, mainly just dated and worn.
I'd definitely recommend this to others. Things that were not ideal were having to go to the lobby to get wifi (not a huge deal and Christian mentions this in his details) and having the kitchen and bathroom share a sink. The location is fantastic; walking distance to a huge number of restaurants and shops and the tourist strip.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The location of the condo is perfect. All restaurants and shops can be reached in less than 5 minutes. It has also a beautiful garden
seat. The only two drawbacks are: internet is available only in the lobby and there is not enough parking space for all guests. We would book there again at any time.

I am unable to review Christian's unit. I was advised last minute that I had been changed to another unit, that Christian's was unavailable. That would have been fine except that the unit I had been changed to was horrible and bore no resemblance to the pictures on AirBnB. I immediately called Christian, went back to the office and was transferred to another unit. The girl at the front desk was hesitant at first however to transfer me, stating that they were very full. She did finally find a unit on the ground floor comparable to Christian's unit. This "condo-hotel" consists of individually owned units. The prices range from $59-$99/night. I wouldn't have paid $25 a night for the unit they tried to put me in. I rented from another host at this same location later in my trip and had no problems but I would definitely be careful when arranging accommodations with this property.
I will say the unit I stayed in was fairly clean, nicely decorated and well-equipped including a drying rack so useful for wet swimsuits.
