Ciao Yuli, thank you so much for your comprehensive review!
I already fixed the 2 bicycles and I hope it won't happen again.
Regarding the apartment rate, it is a normal practice on Airbnb that when the free dates are approaching, rates goes down by 10% to 20% just to fill up the calendar.
Early reservation of course have a premium price but you are sure to get the dates you wanted.
Happy New Year, Genna
