Marie is a wonderful host and her apartment is homey and inviting to stay in. It was easy to adjust to living there and we stayed for a month! It is located in a great area with easy accessibility to beaches and food stores. There are lots of local restaurants and Marie's reco…
We stayed with Marie Cecile for one very happy month. She was a perfect blend of helpful when needed and yet giving us our space. Our suite was clean and orderly and contained all we needed to be able to make our own meals. The location was perfect for us within walking distance …
The grids around the pool were rusty and broken, it's easy to hurt yourself by accident. With my kuds I didn't feel safe. I don't mind pets at all, but not if I constantly find them inside my apartment on my bed.
Response from Marie-Cécile:
Hi Gaia, there are no grids around the pool, just a cement floor so we don't understand your comment (see photos of the property). The apartment has windows and double doors, one door of glass and one inside door with a net so the cat cannot get in unless the guests invite her. Your short stay with us was a bad experience for us as you know. For the record, Airbnb verified your complaint and judged that your refunding request was unfounded. We understand that a property doesn't necessary meet the needs or expectations of all the persons who have reserved, despite our best efforts to describe the apartment in the post and reply all questions. When the case occurs, Airbnb refunding policy is absolutely fair and easy going, the guests just have to cancel their reservation in the system to obtain a refund according to the terms of the contract. It wasn't correct to check out taking the keys with you, blackmail us and force us to call the police. It is a pity that rude and dishonest guests lowered our overall excellent rating so I leave this comment public as a warning for the other property owners.
Maries apartement is realy beautiful and perfect for groups of 4 person. We were allowed to use the pool all the time. The place is perfect to relax on the pool or to enjoy the lovely beaches. Unfortunately, due to the rainy season, there were lots of insects.
Marie-Cécile was a gracious host with a lovely home. Communication was great and check-in was an easy process. We were able to find the place easily with secure parking. The house is walking distance from great restaurants such as Maxwell's and The Shack and a little bit of a lon…
