Don't book with Short Term Accommodation Cairns

This review is more for the purpose of commenting on the rental company Short Term accommodation Cairns. This house while advertised as a share house was offered to us originally as a whole house and we were informed that there were no other occupants and we could therefore pay extra for the available rooms. However upon paying our deposit which was a considerable amount, we were informed that there were in fact others staying in the remaining rooms. From there we attempted to transfer to one of the company's other properties and were told we could not do so. Over the phone we were told hat we would have our own bathroom which also turned out to be untrue as there is one bathroom for the whole house. Upon arrival there was no working light in our room and the archaic windows wouldn't fully close. Upon visiting the offices of the rental company to express our concerns and further request a transfer we were met with two very Unprofessional representatives who both spoke to us in patronising, disdainful and mocking tones, to the point where they openly suggested that the claims we were making were impossible and therefore lies on our behalf. The only saving grace was that the people we were sharing with were friendly and very easy to live with and we enjoyed the city of Cairns immensely. I would strongly caution anyone against booking with this company however and I have noticed other reviewers have suggested this also. They were very duplicitous from the beginning, exceptionally uncooperative, very unprofessional and rude and it is very clear that their properties are nothing like the advertisements and that in fact this company are operating a rather underhand business. In general the house was fine and we made the most of it but the interactions with the company and attempts to get what we had been led to believe we were paying for, was a most unpleasant and disappointing experience.

Owner's Response: Good Afternoon, On behalf of Short Term Accommodation I would like to take this opportunity to provide a response to this review. The tenants that arranged this accommodation were never given false information relating to this property. The tenant contacted our agency after booking this accommodation claiming that He didnt realise the accommodation was infact a share house. I advised the tenant that the listing reads: 3 Bedroom Share House in a PERFECT location!! This 3 bedroom share house is for those looking at city accommodation at an affordable price. It does not state that the rooms have private bathrooms. At no point would our agent advise that they have the entire share house to themselves. This is a share accommodation house which already had pre-existing guests which were not due to check out until after their vacate date. When the tenant enquired to move accommodation we kindly explained that our properties are privately owned and managed and we do not have the ability to move accommodation as it is not a letting pool system. We did however contact the owner as ultimately it is their decision and as his reasoning was not sufficient and they decided to decline. None of the staff were advised of the light bulb not working, the tenant provided a receipt to the office to reimburse them. Had we have been advised this would be fixed immediately. The encounters that all staff including the Owner of the business has had with these tenants was nothing but abusive and nasty. We did all we could regarding a transfer however we are not only to look after the interests of our tenants but our owners too. When tenants make bookings, it states that you agree with all terms and condtions which also reads: All monies paid are non-refundable. If there is an EXTREME circumstance as to why you need to cancel, a refund may be considered at the discretion of Short term accommodation. We will NOT accept the following reasons:- •Change of travel plans •Found alternate accommodation •Property location isn’t suitable Please ensure that you have researched the property prior to making your booking. We apologise for their stay not being what they had planned however the staff at Short Term Accommodation did all we could to assist them with their requests.
