I am quite new to the site, but very excited about being an Airbnb host.
Sorry - not as advertised. we came for a wedding and family reunion and needed a clean, simple place to stay with our grown children to save on outside meals but we were so frustrated and disappointed by our selection. The apartment was clearly not ready for renters and the managment was not equipped to fix things to make it right. It is a new apartment and had issues with things not working like the aircondioner, hotwater heater, dishwasher. We did not have wireless as advertised which was terrible, we did not have a dishwasher because it wasn't hooked up, the livingroom airconditioner which was essential to 80% of the apartments cooling ability in 105 degree August weather only worked for about 5 minutes and then would quit making the apartment miserable most of the time. The secondary bathroom didn't have hotwater and the toilet could only flush once a day so they had an unlicensed worker come to hook up the water heater while we were out and when we returned at 2:00 in the morning found that he left us with live wires, no power and still an unworking hotwater heater. In fact, when you turned it on it would blow the fuse to the apartment because it wasn't grounded so we couldn't use it!! Also, be aware that when we gave the address to the airport transport driver he could not find the building although we could see it from the road because it's so new that the road is not paved or marked yet so you have to go down the dirt road behind the gas station to the building sitting in the middle of the field. We did not have a pool or garden view from this unit. The building experienced several power outages for no apparent reason with it turning back on randomly which left some folks stranded in the elevator! The manager would only take the stairs out of fear of getting stuck!! Also, we had to ask for toilet paper, there are no towels or bed linens provided except for what the manager gives you from his own linen closet all tattered and worn. Lastly, there are no cooking appliances to make tea, toast, or cutlery to cut fruit or a microwave to reheat food, no iron or hairdryer or cleaning supplies so bring your own. To make our experience completely hilarious, the apartment was dirty with mess in the toilet, spit in the sinks, greasy surfaces, etc. and the housekeeper swore under her breath at us when we asked it to be cleaned. They said that we are demanding Americans and no one else had complained and if we did complain, they'd get fired. Hmmm, go figure!! Just ask questions before renting to make sure things have been fixed and hopefully you have better luck.
Serdal was a fantastic host. He speaks Turkish and Dutch, which was for us being from the Netherlands very handy! He was very cooperative and also showed us the way. We would recommend staying with him!
Logement très sympa et très bien équipé à proximité d'Antalya et de ses plages (sinon il y a un accès à une belle piscine...).
De plus, on est très bien accueilli par Serdal et ses proches.
Merci encore Serdal
Serda Gülhan ve sevgili ailesi bizim ikinci misafirlerimizdi . Onlarla tanışmaktan ve misafirimiz olmalarından çok memnun olduk. Gerçekten çok nazik ve samimi insanlardı. Umarım onlarda bizden memnun kalmışlardır. Küçük çocukları olmasına rağmen evimizi çok temiz kullandılar ; evin kurallarına uydular. Onları tekrar misafir etmekten çekinmem.
