Upon arrival we were impressed with the apartments which were well maintained and ideally situated. However, on the second night of our stay our happiness turned to disgust when the owner, Jordan, threatened to evict us for being noisy. He informed us that he would be keeping our deposit and that we must immediately supply him with another one or face eviction. It should be noted that a) We were talking at a barely audible level, and b) There was no warning, just 'pay up or leave immediately'. The owner was pushy and aggressive despite our attempts to pacify the situation and come to a solution. My understanding of a deposit is that it is a fee withheld to cover damages. In this instance we had not damaged the property in any way. When this was pointed out to Jordan he told us he was keeping the money, not for damages, but to pay the neighbours because they were upset by our noise - something which seems completely implausible. On the morning of our departure Jordan turned up to personally see us off. Once again his attitude left much to be desired. He told us we had left the apartment in a bad state, which was again untrue. When I asked him what he meant he answered that we had not done the washing up. In actual fact we had not used the kitchen at all and had eaten out each evening.
Scanning through the other reviews on this site shows that this is not an isolated incident. This appears to be a scam to take trusting travellers money away from them. Avoid at all costs.
