très bon rapport qualité/prix

  • 4 of 5

je vais commencer par les points positifs: l'appartement a été refait a neuf, avec goût. Il est spacieux et très bien agencé.La literie est confortable, les équipements neufs.Le manager est très accessible et sympathique.

Il est situé dans un quartier populaire à 10/15 min de la plage ce qui est très agréable, nous avons pu garer notre voiture sur notre place réservée!

L'immeuble est en cours de rénovation.

Les points négatifs: le manque de communication du propriétaire qui nous a valu 2h d'attente devant l'immeuble...le ménage un peu "light"....le manque d'équipement, il y a quelques casseroles, assiettes, verres etc mais pas de kit de première nécessité style torchon, éponge, liquide vaisselle...Nous avions 2 serviettes de toilette pour 4 et un tapis de bain qui n'était pas passé par la case lavage.

Je reste quand même très positive pour cet appartement car je suis sûre que certaines choses vont pouvoir être améliorées.

Very Poor service to Renters

  • 1 of 5

I had a terrible experience with the whole process of trying to rent this studio... We were very interested in renting the unit for a week, even went to see it and notified the owner immediately of our interest in making the payment to secure it. Over the phone he said it was a done deal and would send us info on payment. But 3 days after waiting for this info, the owner began being very ambiguous at all times, and for over a week wouldn't send an online invoice or account # to make a deposit (and wouldn't say he already had it rented to somebody else either). We trusted his word and he wasted our time; we called him on several occasions and only got false promises of returning our calls and telling us he would be sending us the info for payment over the e-mail. He never did so, and after almost 10 days, he tells us the unit has been rented already. To me this is a lack of respect with potential customers, and a lack of consideration for the time of others. He is not an honest person, because he could have told us since the beginning he had another renter and we wouldn't have wasted 10 days and could have found something else promptly.

So to all of those interested in renting this unit, beware of these issues and make sure you confirm everything accordingly if you don't want to waste your time like ours was wasted.

Owner's Response: The prospect renter never paid the amount requested to make the reservation, when asked, so they were not happy because we rented to some one else! Sorry but if we have no money there is no honey!!

Apartamento precioso

  • 4 of 5

Altamente satisfecho con este apartamento así como con la amabilidad que me trató su dueño Jose y los responsables del edificio Juancho y pareja. Algún detalle sin apenas importancia acerca de la limpieza del lugar que podría mejorarse pero que se suplía con todas las prestaciones que la vivienda ofrece al visitante tales como un sistema de aire acondicionado potente, gran pantalla de tv, sistema WiFi poderoso, gran espacio en la vivienda, cama grande y muy cómoda, gran vestidor con muchas perchas, etc. ... Con ganas de repetir

Es war ok / it was ok

  • 3 of 5

The interior of the apartement is justas announced and looks pretty beautiful. But north beach is super far away from everything so I would advice you to have a rented car or download te app "uber" - a kind of cap app to get somewhere.

Because of renovations we had to move our rented car each morning... it was told us it would only last for 2 days but in the end we had to move our car every morning of all of the 10 days...

because street parking is free at the street it was no problem to me but I also want to give next renters a picture of the landlords.

they didn't reach out to me for further information also they said so in their email of confirmation the reservation. I had to contact fewo to get the exact address and a number to call cause emails weren't replied.

they announced that the apartement has room for 4 people but only provided bed sheets and pillows for 2 persons. so keep in mind to bring something for 2 more people.

the apartement itself has wify, flatscreen tv and is well provided with kitchen utilities. washing machine and dryer are coin generated.

After our stay we handed the keys back and I asked when I will get my deposit back. I was told the next days but after 3 weeks I still got no money back. So I had to open a case at my bank to undo the payment.

for further renters I would advice not to book this apartement although the apartement itself if absolutely fine but you have a lot of trouble with everything because of the slack replying of the landlord. he's just not a person you can rely on and on travels you need information in advance. this is not guaranteed with this landlord on my experience. from now on I will get back renting apartements on airbnb cause also fewo doesn't feel responsible for getting back the deposit as it's a matter of the contract parties and few is only the conector between those parties.

the 100 euro or whatever you might safe here are better invested in an airbnb apartement where airbnb has at least control about the payment.
