Response from Christian:

Hello Lauren. I am sorry to read this. All our guest say the exact opposit.

Lauren : Instead of coming up( 50meters walk ) to our house and let us know about your complains, you choose to send very rude and directive emails. Maybe you could try to re- read them and realize that.
I won't comment the lies and arrangements you made in your comment to make it sound true. I know it is useless.
As everyones knows, our houses are cleant and prepared for every new guest OF COURSE !!! We are not crazy and don't want to ruin our reputation.
Also : You had a free upgrade to a 2 bedrooms instead of a studio and payed 110$ (not 150..).
However, we do live in the country, in a dry area during dry season. And when the wind blows as it sometimes blows strong at this period of the year... Of course some dust from the dirtroads and the trails or the dry leafs make their way into the houses within minutes. Everyone who lived in a house in tropical country knows that ( unless you live in a bunker with AC full on all day and closed windows).
This makes also the charm of the area. No asphalt. Lots of trees... Most of the people understand this... And even love this !
This comes along with "nature"... Some people prefer the luxury of a golf court hotel. Matter of taste, i respect that.
I have no power to tell the wind not to blow. I cannot come every 30mn to clean the floor. (we are not a hotel but a vacation rentals). what I can do is having a normal talk with people that come to me and try to let them have the best experience and the best vacation. It seems to work most of the time if I believe what our guests write.

We work a lot to make this place look as good as it is. Haven't you enjoyed the beauty of the trees, the garden, the pool, the tropical birds and the monkeys... And of course the bugs ( this is the food for birds... No bugs no birds !). We live in the middle of nature and of course you cannot tell animals to "not enter a private property" ! But seriously don't you think you're exagerating ? Would we have guests coming back if it were that bad ? We're open for almost 10 years and we try to make it better every year. We love suggestions and we hear them.

Regarding your way of writing emails, To be honest, I don't allow myself to speak this way to my own staff. There are some oldschool rules and behaviors I am proud to respect. Maybe due to my age.
When people check in I always tell them : "if you have any trouble or see anything that doesn't work, please come up and let us know". Doing this would have let you take hot showers from the first day.

Maybe are you used to have people around you that obey whatever you might say. Even if you treat them with no respect. Being 65years old and also a former doctor, I had the opportunity in my life to deal with a lot of people. Some nice, some not. I never let people disrespect me but I always try to help the best I can. That comes from my past as a doctor I guess.
I'm not here to lecture you but I can tell you this is the first time in 10 years I have such an experience.

Thanx Hannes. It was a pleasure to have you here. We're glad we knocked on your door to let you know the monkeys were just around the house. Come back soon !
Kind regards

Response from Christian:

Hello Leigh Anne. This is the mail I received from you saying you would arrive around 2pm : Quote :"Christian, We left from Santa Teresa today around 1:30. After 6 hours - 1 successful river crossing - and 1 long drive that led to a very deep river - we had to turn back around and have ended up in Cobano also that in the morning we can take the very long way around to get to you guys. We should be getting in by 2 - sorry for any inconvenience! Leigh-Anne " end quote
I was worried and sent you a message but got no answer. If you wish to reschedule I would be happy to welcome you here of course. But when a customer writes to say he will arrive later it is normal that I do not worry about him finding the way to come ... Am I wrong ?
Anyhow as I said you are welcome if you want to reschedule.
Kind regards

Christian
