1 day before my departure, I receive an e-mail offering me an'upgradé to another apartment on Bonham strand, called:i-candy.
I said ´no thanks'. Well, I received another e-mail within minutes stating that the big holiday home had a toilet flood that would not be repaired before our arrival neither for any time during our 6 days reservation.
So we ended up in a much inferior quality apartment, the other one that was advertised that I did not want in the first place. After many calls, Matt gave me a $200.00 discount on a total rental of $2400.00. He also offered me to cancel the reservation but it was too last minute to find anything suitable for my family of 4 just 24 hrs before our departure. At our arrival, we went to see the apartment building of our original booking: Wow! Cosco building (33 Win Lok)is a modern, beautiful building with all glass exterior.
Well, the apartment building we were in was very old, exterior window a/c and dirty exterior.
We inquired about moving to the nice (original) apartment to extend our stay after the 6 days booked and it was denied by Matt stating that it was already rented. Two days before we left, we checked on his calendar and much to our surprise, it was available!
To summarize: the big holiday home is just a front(probably his apartment) to ask for a higher price, and at the last minute, when he knows you are stuck with him and the commission fee to travelmob that you paid, he sends you to his other, older apartment.
The agent that welcomed us at the Bonham strand apartment did not even know the nice apartment on Win Lok street...
We ended up adapting to this change of plans but the price we paid was way too much for the value of what we had. However, the apartment was clean, as pictured on the website.
It's the third time I rent through homeaway and the first time I am disappointed.
I hope this will help other potential renters. I should have suspected something when I did not see any reviews for this apartment before.
