I am baffled how Patrick can even write such an untrue review - given that he was in Germany when we arrived and we didn't even meet him!
I will start by saying that we are a respectable family with young children and NEVER have we left a room, apartment, hotel or any other property we have stayed in in a messy state. We have travelled the world and stayed in many Airbnb properties and have never had a complaint made about us. Quite the contrary. If you read the reviews below you will see that we've had lovely reviews - all saying how we left the apartments clean and tidy. As we did Patrick's! The apartment has barely any furniture so it was impossible to leave it a mess. When we checked out I removed the bedding from the beds and placed our dirty towels on the floor. We put all of our trash in the bin. I see Patrick is new to Airbnb so I am not sure what he was expecting? Did he want us to wash the sheets and vacuum the floors? We stayed in the apartment for just 2 days - and we were out all day on both days - we did not even cook in the apartment - so how much mess can we make?
As soon as we landed in Singapore I tried to call Patrick only to find the number he provided was his German number and he was un-contactable. We arrived at the apartment and had to wait at security for 45 minutes in the rain with 2 young children whilst constantly trying to get through to Patrick on his phone. Finally we heard from someone saying they will come and meet us - in ANOTHER 30 minutes to let us in. Note I had given Patrick our flights details so he knew when to expect us.
Whilst we were waiting at security - the onsite manager indicated to us that it was against Body Corporate Regulations for Patrick to rent his apartment out - which made us very concerned! This was not a good start to our Singapore holiday!
Finally someone turned up and let us in. I will say the apartment was nice - but very sparse. Not a lot of furniture and the doonas on the beds were very small so not really ideal for sharing a bed.
We had arranged with Patrick's friend to check out at 1pm. He did not arrive until 1.30pm by which stage we were running late for our flight. He asked us to meet him in the basement where we gave him the keys. I am not sure if he was expecting us to then to back up to the apartment with him while he inspected it? Needless to say we did not have time for that.
I would be very wary of renting an apartment from Patrick as he tells untruths and is not a reliable host. Granted his apartment is nice - but he is not an honest man. It's was very unfortunate experience and I suspect he won't be a member of Airbnb for much longer.
