My boyfriend, my dog and I stayed at Jonathan's place for just over a month. We love San Cristobal and had a wonderful time in the city. The best parts about Jonathan's place were the security of the "neighborhood" and having a grassy area for our dog. Overall we did enjoy our st…

Rae, As a part of this great community I'd like to let you know that for us, our listing in Airbnb is, more than a business, a way to help other travelers to have nice experiences traveling around the world. We are big travelers and have had great experiences with very nice nice people in many countries. We want to give back a little bit of that we have gotten by traveling. That is what we do. For very low prices we receive in our houses travelers from all over the world and we try to give them the best impression of our country and our culture. As you know you were traveling in southern Mexico, specifically in Chiapas, which is the less developed state in whole Mexico. Despite this, we are happy people and we are proud of our culture and history. For what you wrote in this review I can tell you are upset for some reason, it probably is for the fact that we were frank by letting you know that we detected an excess in the consume of electricity during your staying and we proposed you to negotiate the payment. Let me clarify some of the points you addressed: 1) What you wrote is not accurate, even though we don’t have a high speed internet as you do in the U.S. out signal is pretty decent and it is good enough to do most of the tasks someone would need to do when traveling or living in Chiapas. Once again, remember that our property is in a mountain in southern Mexico. If you needed super high speed internet and a big data plan, an Airbnb in San Cristobal de las Casas was not the right place. You should have gone to a hotel in a major city. 2) We don’t have announced heaters in our listings, actually is not common to use them in San Cristobal. Electricity is very expensive in this part of Mexico. In the wintertime, when weather gets cold (between 50-60 ° F) we try to provide gas heaters to our guest. When you stayed in our property weather was about 70° F and despite that, you brought a high consumption electric heater in the cabin that you were using without letting us know. They company prevented us for one increase of 1000 % in electricity consumption. We let you know that. 3) Certainly we let you know about the excess of consumption of electricity during your staying and we proposed you to make the payment of the extra consumption directly to the electricity company and avoid the use of high consumption electricity devises. Instead of being responsible with what you were consuming you refused to take care of that. That’s when we decided to cancel your staying. Finally, Airbnb proposed us to let you finish your staying in exchange of making effective a host insurance to cover your extras. I let you know, you are not our fist guest, we have had hundreds in the last years and many of them have stayed for long periods. We never had someone like you though. 4) In this point you show yourself totally biased. This is a house not a camping place. I have not comments regarding this.5) Supplies are responsibility of guests, you were responsible for bringing their own food, toilet paper, napkins, toothbrushes, lotions, etc. However, we provide to our guests some amenities for the fist days in order to make their settle more comfortable, and yes we provide some toilet paper, shampoo and fruits, bread and local coffee for your first breakfast. Regarding the towels we provide one per guest and for long staying we change them weekly. If you needed more you could ask or buy yours if it make you feel more comfortable. As I explained you the maid who clean the house is able to help with laundry if she has time, but this is not a business for us. Laundry could take more than one day because of the lack of water in the mountain. When we don’t have enough water we need to call the city to ask for water supply. It normally takes one business day. 6) The access to our cabin is through a not paved road. Remember, the property is in the mountain. We wish you all the best.
