Response from Marta And Douglas:

We have approximately 60 reservations per month in the busy season and every month a few people do question why the rate being quoted is different than the one advertised, this is always before they make their reservation, not 3 weeks later and after we explain why we have never had a problem with our guests understanding this. Barbara also told us that she had a second house in Hyannis, Massachusetts, which they sometimes rent out, so she certainly understands that rates vary by the season. Barbara never asked to cancel her reservation, which she could have done without our permission and because we would not issue her a credit she has decided to write the only "honest review" out of almost 300 on our property and 67 reviews specifically on the apartment she rented.

We are so very grateful that we get to meet and share our place with almost 400 guest's per year. Our guests are made up of young families with children, singles, couples and retirees in their 80's. They come from all over the world and it has been a wonderful experience to meet them and learn about their culture and life experiences. We know that for most it will be a once in a lifetime trip to our country, we also realize that some people may be a bit nervous about traveling to a foreign land and for these reasons we do all that we can to make our guests feel as if they are staying with family or friends and that their vacation in Costa Rica is as pleasant and unforgettable as possible.

Pura vida,

Marta & Douglas

Here is what happened with Barbara before her arrival.

Barbara made her reservation on January 7 and on January 29 three weeks later she contacted us asking for a credit because "Today I looked on your site and see that you are advertising a villa with the same accommodations for a price of $50 per day or $350. I would like to know why we were charged $145 more? We would like to pay the advertised price and receive a credit." and here is our response

Hola Barbara,

We are sorry for the confusion. We supply Airbnb with 3 different rates, these rates vary depending on the season, but unfortunately they only publish the lowest possible rate. We feel it would be better for all if there web site stated from $50 per night, or in our case from $50 to $75 per night, but it doesn't and we have absolutely 0 control over their website. If you inquire about La Casita for a week in May and one in September you will be quoted 2 different rates, with September being at the $50 per night, or $350 for the week, that is because September through November is the height of our rainy season and tourism is 20% or less of what it is in February, when you reserved your week.

The add for La Casita is presently at $50 per night and always has been, but you probably didn't see it when you made your reservation, you were automatically quoted the high season rate when you submitted your dates and you went ahead and confirmed your reservation.

It is not our intention to mislead, or cheat any of our guests and I think that the hundreds of positive reviews that we have indicate just the opposite and that is why I am responding at such length to try to clear things up. You are not the only person to question this, we get a few inquiries about this every month and it is frustrating to us as well to repeatedly try to explain why this has happened.

I will finish this by saying that we think that Airbnb is a fantastic site, not perfect, but still fantastic. It has allowed us to entertain guests from 50 plus countries from around the world that we would have never met and it has allowed travelers to find reasonable, safe lodging that they would never have been able to find before.

We will see you in a few weeks and trust that your opinion of Airbnb, or us has not been diminished in any way.

Pura vida,

Marta & Douglas
