The Host was welcoming us warmly and gave us wonderful recommendations and ideas about locations, tours and restaurants. the house was nice and when we suffered from flood due to heavy rain Denise dealt with it immediately. We were disappointed though to find out we need to add…
Response from Denise:
Dear Tal Ornan , Thank you for your review. Based on your review I’d like to comment that you made a reservation through the "airbnb" instant booking system for the period from 20 to 25 September 2015 and you were correctly charged for 5 nights by Airbnb site system and not by me personally, since you stayed for 5 nights (20+21+22+23+24 = 5 nights) and not 4 nights as you assume. Furthermore your arrival time on Sunday 20 September was at 12:30 hours and I arranged that you could use the villa earlier so to enjoy your vacation instantly although normal check in time is set at 15:00 hours for the holiday home. Moreover, for your information the extra fee for the air condition is clearly described at this site in the section “detailed description – other things to note: ” Additional fees - payment cash at arrival. Mandatory: departure cleaning fee for a stay of less than 7 nights: 40€. Optional: air condition: 10 Euro/day, available from April to November. Etc… “ Here, I‘d also like to note that I did not charge you locally the cleaning fee for your stay less than 7 nights. Since the air condition fee policy is clearly defined on this website I believe your comment is misplaced. Now whether it should be charged or not in general is a matter of personal opinion. I personally do not agree that it should be included in the rate as a basic service, as from my professional experience with past guests, they use this amenity mainly only during July and August months. Why should a guest pay a higher price inclusive a service he will probably not use during his stay? By offering the air condition as a “supplementary service payable locally”, each guest can decide on the spot if he wants to use this service depending on the weather conditions and his specific personal needs. Many guests frequently and explicitly declared they did not want to use the air condition because it is bad for their health and many others because they have an environmental sensitivity: they wish to lower the pollution caused by an excessive energy consumption of electricity used for the air condition. For all the above described reasons, I offer the air condition as an amenity with an extra fee which can be paid locally. I hope now you understand. Having clarified all the above, I truly hope you overall enjoyed your stay on our villa and in the island of Crete in general and sincerely wish to welcome you again in the near future (if you decide so). Best Regards, Denise Volonge Owner - Manager Helidonia Villas
