Be very clear that it's not a private villa. It's more like a hotel with 7 bedrooms. The swimming pool is not a private one, it's a shared one. There are pool timings to access the pool and some other absurd conditions. Host won't be helpful whatsoever. He's got this attitude tha…

Response from Bryan:
Hi Vignesh, Having read your review I feel compelled to respond to the issues you have raised: The property you have stayed in is a seven bedroom villa with its own private swimming pool. Contrary to what you have stated in your review, the swimming pool is not shared with any other or anyone else, other than the occupants of the seven bedrooms of this villa. You and your friends occupied five of the seven bedrooms, keeping the other two bedrooms closed. The villa and the swimming pool therefore, was exclusively for your use. This is inspite of the fact that you paid for only five bedrooms. Can't See how you can define this fact differently. For safety reason we advised you not to venture into the pool at night and after consuming alcohol. Also, being rainy season it adds to this aggravated problem. Beside this fact, there were no other absurd condition put to you, you are writing about. Infact you yourself suggested that you would use the pool early in the morning for which I had and have no objection. Safety and security of my guest is of prime importance to me and I would not compromised on that. I am sure you can appreciate this fact. You had requested me for an early check-in, which I agreed to with absolutely no reservations. In fact I was waiting to check you in myself. For reason best known to you, you checked-in late and the main point of conversation you had with me, telephonically by then, was how much discount I could give you. When declined, you said yourself you would vacate the villa, to which I agreed to have your monies refunded to you by Airbnb. It is therefor not correct to say that I expected you to cancel your booking and get lost. The property you stayed in is located in Dona Paula which is well known and prime tourist destinations. This is not of my making but an established fact. I am surprised at your comments on the location and what it has to offer. There are at least a dozen fine dining spots in an around Dona Paula including Goan Speciality Restaurants such as The Goan Room, located just three hundred meters from the property you stayed in. It was your choice, probably, to drive seven KM to Ritz Classic, which you are now attempting to load on to me and the location. Lastly, the housekeeping staff mentioned by you was stationed outside to assist you. They, therefore, in no way infringed on your privacy. I am sure you would have complained in the same tone and tenor had hey not been there and you were left on your own. It is unfair that having gone through my listing details and agreed to the pricing you should have asked for discount at check-in and by way of pressure of vacating the property. I would definitely caution other host to be wary before accepting to host you in the future.

The house is beautiful. The neighborhood is very quiet. There are no good restaurants in the vicinity. So you need to plan accordingly. Same boring breakfast provided everyday so not many options but to travel far and eat out. We though of cooking ourselves, but there are no…
