The house is in a great location. Steve was very helpful, and responded to any questions or concerns very quickly. for the price, I couldn't ask for more.

Three bathrooms with showers. Hot water readily available but not scalding. Multiple air conditioners that will freeze out an Eskimo if that is what you desire. Plan to stay there again the next time we go to San Carlos.

Great house! Large, beautiful house with awesome patios/roof top margarita deck. Steven was very helpful, and made sure we were perfectly set up in his house. We arrived late, well after dark and steven made arrangements for us, which was really helpful. Thanks again!

Starting with the good. The physical house is excellent, a good value, great location and the rooftop patio can't be beat. Now to the not so great. My friends and I stayed for 2 nights and when we left we had a good impression and all agreed we would consider staying here again. That being said there were still some minor problems during our stay, such as no propane in the grill, no remote garage door openers (the car garages strangely only work with remotes but we were able to park in the boat garage which does have a wall mounted opener), very poor cutlery, and the nearby property management company from whom I got the keys was very confused by Airbnb, demanded payment from me, and took almost half an hour to figure out what was going on (also they speak limited English, thankfully I had a local Sonoran with me). Really though, these are all minor issues, and I still had a good impression at this point. On to the bad. A day or two after our stay Steve contacted me in a very uncomfortably accusatory way about our visit. He said that the maid related to him that we left the place in poor condition. The complaint revolved around 4 points. 1. we had left a blood stain about the size of a quarter on a bathroom rug 2. The blender was damaged, missing a plastic cover for one of the buttons 3. The bathrooms were dirty. 4. One of the four AC units was left on. I immediately replied in full, apologizing for the rug and offering compensation. I wasn't aware of the stain but my friend stepped on a stingray so I'll assume we were at fault. The blender was damaged when we arrived. I was unsure of the bathroom comment, asked for further clarification, and received none (perhaps this was because we put all the used towels on the floor before we left, which I thought was standard procedure with housekeeping?). I made a conscious effort to clean up and close down (eg washing dishes and taking out trash) including turning off all the ACs before we left, but I never quite figured out how to use the remotes, and must have turned one to standby instead of off, which I apologized for. Despite receiving quick confirmation of his receipt of my email regarding the above, Steve did not reply in a substantial way until I contacted him 10 days later (today, the last day to leave a review). This time he replied briefly and quickly. We quickly came to an agreement on reasonable compensation for the rug, and he suddenly seemed unconcerned about the other points. Basically the whole matter boils down to we damaged the (very inexpensive) rug, when I learned of this I immediately apologized and offered compensation, which was eventually accepted. My negative experience stemmed from the cold and indiligent communications by Steve ex post facto.

Response from Steven:
I promise any of you who read this: I will do everything in my power to make sure your stay at my house is pleasant and without problems. It is a beautiful home and an excellent value. It's interesting that Mr. Kent fails to include many relevant points. First, let me make it clear that I told Mr. Kent well in advance of his stay that if there were any problems while he was at my house in Mexico, he should reach out to me. Because the house is in Mexico and I am in Arizona, there are sometimes issues about which I'm not fully aware because of the distance. Mr. Kent did not reach out to me while staying at the house. I assumed everything was fine. However, after his stay ended, I reached out to him to see how his stay went. He did not respond. As such, I thought maybe there were problems. I reached out to my management company in Mexico and was told that there were a number of issues. 1. the bathrooms were filthy with feces left in the unflushed toilets; 2. a blood stained bathroom rug; 3. some damage to a blender; 4. all of the A/Cs were left on. I then forwarded the e-mail with these problems to Mr. Kent. Because he hadn't responded to my initial e-mail, I assumed that his lack of response was because of these issues. I forwarded the e-mail and stated: "See below. Care to comment before I contact airbnb?" Maybe Mr. Kent is extremely sensitive in nature. I do not see this as accusatory. Had Mr. Kent responded to my initial e-mail, reaching out to him to see if he enjoyed his stay, maybe all of this would have turned out differently. Mr. Kent asked me NOT to involve airbnb in these issues and that he would resolve them with me. He pointed out that there was a problem checking in, as he had to show ID and that the management company made a copy of his DL. He told me that there was no propane for the grill (had he contacted me during his stay, as I had asked, I could have resolved this problem in a matter of minutes) and that there was no soap for washing dishes (again, simple to handle had he contacted me) and that the kitchen knives were dull and broken points. He also didn't receive the garage door opener for some reason when he checked in. Again, I could have handled all of these issues very quickly had he reached out to me during his stay. Upon further investigation, after Mr. Kent asked me not to involve airbnb, I discovered from the management company that the blender issue was not due to Mr. Kent's group and I told him such and apologized for having brought that up. However, the toilets full of feces, the blood stained rug and leaving the AC units on were all valid issues. I left town and had no way to contact Mr. Kent while I was waiting to hear back from my management company, but did so upon my return. I decided to take the high road about the issues. He asked what I wanted in compensation for the rug. My response was whatever he thought it was worth. He said $10, I agreed. I dropped the other points as a courtesy and because he requested that I not report his filthy treatment of my property to airbnb. Anyone can make a mistake, so I just let it go. My brevity yesterday was due to coming back to work after being out of the country and being busy. I left a decent review about him. In response, and in retaliation for god knows what, he wrote the above review -- I find it underhanded that he asked me not to involve airbnb, which I did not, but he chose to do so. And, the review omits so much as to make it seem like I do not or did not care about his stay, when the truth is quite different. I will say this: like with ANY property, be it fancy hotel, a hostel, a regular hotel, a house or whatever, there are. at times, issues unknown to the owner. That is why I always provide my e-mail and phone # so that if there are issues, I can get the management company in San Carlos to handle them immediately. Given the house is in Mexico, I cannot know, from day to day, the exact status of everything in the house. Mr. Kent did not report any of his issues during the time of his stay, so I had no way to fix them for him. Had he done so, as I requested, most of his issues would have been resolved in a matter of minutes.
