Idyllic hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Booked this property based on the pictures and we where not disappointed. We only stayed 3 nights and we where so tired from our travels + it was to Hot we decided to just stay around the house. Would have been nice to have a little more time to explore some of the hiking trails etc maybe next time.. Big thanks to Helen and Scott for a lovely but short stay. and thank you for going to the trouble of buying the sun chairs, It really made the difference thanks again.

Es gibt KEINEN Stern, ist aber eine Pflichteingabe.

We would recommend to not book this apartment. We booked this apartment and already paid part of the rent. We were supposed to write him a SMS when we arrived in Sweden, so he can give us the exact address , but when we called he told us there is already another family there.

We had an 13 hour car ride and he couldn't give us an accommodation, and we had no place to stay! We did not receive our money back, so we tried to contact Scott, but he did not respond to our E-Mails, SMS, nor did he answer the phone, instead he turned his phone of after our call.

We have not seen the accommodation, nor seen Scott, but we paid already a part of the rent, so think carefully when you consider booking this apartment.

Thank you, Scott and Helen, for this awful holiday start after a 13 hours car ride!!!

Wir empfehlen dieses Objekt nicht zu buchen! Wir hatten das Haus im Frühjahr für den Sommerurlaub gemietet und eine Anzahlung geleistet. Vor Reiseantritt hatten wir auch noch diverse E-Mail-Kontakte und es wurde vereinbart am Anreisetag, eine Stunde vor Eintreffen am Ort, die genaue Adresse zu erhalten. Nach 13-stündiger Fahrt in Karlstad angekommen, reagierte der Vermieter auf unsere SMS - Nachricht überhaupt nicht, erst nach einigen Versuchen war er dann telefonisch zu erreichen, um uns mitzuteilen, dass das Haus bereits belegt ist. Er versprach die Anzahlung zurück zu überweisen, doch leider warten wir bis heute auf unser Geld. Wir haben den Vorgang der Internetseite FeWo-direkt gemeldet, aber auch hier bisher noch keine Klärung in der Angelegenheit erhalten. Vielen Dank an alle Beteiligten, insbesondere an Scott und Helen, für diesen katastrophalen Urlaubsstart, nach 13-stündiger Autofahrt.

Unseriöser Vermieter!
