Response from Jim&Helen:

Nicolas was the worst guest we ever had and the most misleading, disrespectful and unsanitary in our experience. I would never allow this family back into my home. He comes across as a lamb but is ruthless and will lie to try to avoid responsibility. He yelled at me and called me names (which he later apologized for). We delivered an immaculate house (which he recognized) and found a pig pen with damages that he didn't want to pay for! !!. We rented our home to a Grammy winning dj in July and they left the home respectfully and in 100 times better condition than this family. We even replaced a working air conditioner because it was too loud for their liking!!!! Nicolas initially made the reservation request for 1 and before I accepted I asked him to confirm how many guests he would have. He said it would be his family of 4 and his mother. I asked him to resend the reservation request because we need to know all people staying in our house and to properly compute the cost of the rental SO HE WAS WELL AWARE of this requirement. He took advantage of our trust and had various people staying in our house without informing us. Under our agreement, i could have terminated his stay (which i never even pointed out to him) but instead i told him we will work it out. We are responsible home owners and neighbors and expected honesty about the use of our home from our guests.
We saw the condition of the house when we came with the brand new AC unit and it was heartwrenching to see how quickly they undid all the cleaning and preparation we provide to each of our guests. Of all the damages, the most significant was the destruction of our wooden teak chair which Nicolas told me occurred during his brothers misuse. YOU CAN'T LEAN BACK ON A WOODEN CHAIR! The respect I had gained for him again in that moment of honesty completely dissipated when he didn't want to pay for the chair c and thought he could scare us into a lawsuit for renting an unsafe home to him. Ruthless behavior and I forewarn anyone who cares about their home like we do to allow them to vacation with you.

Response from Jim&Helen:

Adrienne left a number of text messages that the house is just lovely and they were truly enjoying it. This review is offending as it accuses us of holding back information and accommodation and opposite of all my interactions with Adrienne.
1/2 bath:
As soon as I received the txt from Adrienne regarding the half bath, I had a very lengthy, costly although pleasant conversation with Adrienne from Greece to explain that this is an airbnb.com issue. I explained that the airbnb.com website listed the outdoor shower as a half bath and that we placed pictures of everyroom of the house to address any confusion. In my opinion, she is confusing "explaining" with being "defensive".
Black feet:
Our house is immaculate and this comment of black feet is something they must have brought in from the vineyards they visited. There were black feet marks on my pure white dkny coverlet which thankfully removed fine. (I put this in my private comments to Adrienne).

Beach permit:
The town beach permits require a license plate number which is why each guest must obtain their own. most beaches are only for the use of residents which is why a guest permit is required. Im sure this is why the area is so attractive to visitors. Again, this is a town issue and has nothing to do with my desire to accommodate or about my house.
Ocean Waves and Smell Vine Ripened tomatoes:
If the ocean flat, you won't hear waves. Early morning and late night is normally when we hear them. I'm sorry you were unable to identify the sound-it is lovely.
Tomatoes ripen in August and your visit was in July.

Response from Jim&Helen:

Thank you Sandy! So happy you enjoyed our home and noticed all the great things we love about it too. Wi-Fi in the area is not optimal and would probably lead to frustrating download and user experiences so we have opted out for now. When needed, we carve out time and head to Starbucks or the local library, 5 minutes away. We continue to check with the local providers and our neighbors about the status and will be sure to install when it will work properly.
You are welcome back anytime!
