I'm disappointed with my stay at Juan's house. He was not there to receive us, just left the keys in the post box. We arrived together with the other couple and we didn't know which room should be occupied by whom. The house was not cleaned, we had to wait until the end of the day to have the house cleaned. The advertisement said breakfast included, but there was no breakfast at all. In the end, he sent someone to charge me an extra fee of $ 60, cause he said was not announced correctly in Air BnB. I payed to avoid problem, but I think was not fare to charge me, cause he didn't offered the breakfast announced. The house is ok, good location, but the bathroom is very old and has a bad shower. We had no towels, I had to dry myself with my t-shirt in the first day, until I buy a towel!
Giselle was expecting a 5 Stars Hotel, it's a shame she didn't understand Airbnb good vibes. The announce doesn't say that towels are included. The food for breakfast was in the fridge, is as simple as opening it, the coffee already prepared on the machine. We are flexible in checkin and chekout time but she expect to sleep with her couple until 6pm regardless we have to clean the room for new guests. TThe house was cleaned at 2pm and she arrived 1 hour before. About the difference of price, 31 of december is high season here, airbnb price was not correct when she booked. Anyway I hope you enjoy Punta Giselle!
To avoid misunderstandings, we suggest to read carefully the Announce, all the Reviews and our Guest Satisfaction before booking.
Juan was a great host. He was not at home during my stay, but he met me conveniently at the airport to give me the keys. The apartment was nice and at a good price for Punta Del Este. Very easily accessible from the bus terminal that I took from the airport. Juan has lots of great ideas for things to do and sounds and awesome guy! Hopefully you spend more time with him than I did. :)
Juan is a great guy and a great host. We had a good time and appreciated to be able to crash at Juan's place during the busiest season in Punta.
The place is very well located in Punta and close to the beaches. Absolutely recommendable if you are looking for a budget place in Punta.
Gracias Juan y muy feliz año 2012!
The place is a nice & friendly house/apartement close to the beach (we couldn t go as it was raining when we were there :-( ) Internet connection working & Juan was away most our stay but we met him twice & he was as friendly & nice as his place ! Communication with him was perfect & even easier as he speaks french very well! Merci / Muchas Gracias
