The emails with Javier and then contact and meeting with his friend, who gave us the keys, was very friendly. That was probably the best part of our stay in this flat. It does not meet the quality and standards that we have enjoyed from other flats on airbnb, whose customer service responded quickly and helped us relocate. The photos of the flat are misleading: some furniture (like the two tables) has disappeared or been moved, some has been replaced, the two main blinds are broken, as is the shower-head holder - all in all resulting in a much less friendly and less practical feeling. Besides that, we found there to be a general feel of neglect: though the flat had been cleaned before we arrived, we had to bleach the bath tub twice and scrub it to make it look not disgustingly grimy. At least its cleaner now ... The shower curtain was mouldy, and there was an unpleasant smell from the kitchen cabinets. Finally, as the previous guest described in his comment - unfortunately posted after our booking - the neighbours are very very loud: they partied for three nights in a row until 4am, their front doors open to the corridor. We know Bondi Beach is a party place, but didn't expect it inside a residential building, and at this price for the flat.
Response from Javier:
Tristan built up a case to get his money back when I had strict refund policies. He made up all these issues without responding my messages to know how he was doing and went directly to Airbnb. Unfortunately Airbnb believed him and I got only 25% of my revenues. It is the only conflicting guest I've ever had. All other evaluations of my unit are positive and totally contrary to Tristan's. It is not possible that all the other guests have only positive feedback and Tristan's seems so bad. It is a shame that a user take advantage of this system and on top of that makes a bad evaluation of my place. Please check my other evaluations.
The unit was exactly as described. Was walking distance to everything we needed. Javier gave us tips on free parking which was only a 5 minute walk and easy to find. Communication was great with quick responses to any questions asked. We had our son with us which the sofa bed was fine for. Would stay here again.
Fantastic location, great place, a few bumps. The apartment was very clean, very comfortable, in a great neighborhood. Javier was not in town but contacted me via email to make sure all was ok when I arrived. I had originally booked a different place but it was cancelled last minute so I was lucky to find Javier's place. Unfortunately, I was driving and did not have time to verify the parking situation. Javier tried to offer ideas, but in reality I was stuck paying for parking whenever I was at the apartment on either a 1-hour or 2-hour meter. Pricey and inconvenient! If you are not driving, you'll really enjoy the chill apartment and great neighborhood.
