This was my first experience of Airbnb, I selected it as I was traveling on a budget, high season, short notice attend a funeral etc. I booked 11 nights at this accommodation. On the whole, I was pleased with the accommodation. It was an adequate size, fairly good standard, and location. It was a good base from which to commute and carry out a number of tasks. However, on the morning of the 9th day, I awoke to find 3 gentlemen trying to get into the premises. I was made to understand that they were bailiffs and an attorney of law and they were to cease the property that I was in and the adjoining apartment that was inhabited by my host. (there was an internal door that connected the two apartments.) When I called Michael to ask what was going on he informed me that they were not genuine, he feared for his life and would not come out. He said that he had called the police and they were on the way. I was informed by the bailiffs that both properties would have to vacate as soon as possible and the matter was on-going for a number of years. I was a bit taken back, that as the situation developed, during one of my telephone conversations with the host, where I was trying to establish what was happening and why, it was implied that it was "I" who had let the bailiffs in. In fact, they had removed a lock. (I felt blamed). I was shocked and felt extremely angry at the suggestion. I felt as if he was saying I had brought this onto myself. At this stage, his door was still closed. To make a very long and extremely unpleasant story short, it was genuine and both apartments had to be vacated. I did feel abandoned by the host, this may well be that his issues were greater than mine, re homeless? This was by no means a very pleasant experience, a genuine apology would have been nice. I had to find alternative accommodation and transport to it, this the bailiffs and police assisted me with, in terms of suggestions. Note whilst I did receive a refund of the basic rate for the nights that I was not at this accommodation, it did not cover the cost of the replacement accommodation, ( which was a very modestly priced place!). I really hope that no one else will ever have to experience this and this accommodation is no longer advertised on Airbnb.

Response from Michael:
The location is secure and we do not have any further problems. However, this was a new lesson in Jamaican Law that the property owner put us through without any notice whatsoever. We did the best we could under difficult and frightening times in a foreign country. This review needs to come down as this was not our fault at all. And it makes it seem that others are at risk and that simply is not true.

BUYER BEWARE! This is a FAKE and VINDICTIVE review left after we requested money for a brand new designer wash clothe set was destroyed with bleach by these unaccountable guests. Just look at all of our great reviews and tell me who you are going to believe.

I have stayed a Mike's places a few times and they are always how they are describe. This place was clean, had all the advertised amenities and close to most activities and attractions in new kingston and surroundings. Mike was flexible and accommodating in getting me a place at the last minute.
