Cancellation my condo unit rent without proper notice

Cancellation my condo unit rent without proper notice

Subject: Sea Residence Luxury Suite across Mall of Asia

Location: Manila, Metro Manila, Luzon, Philippines, Asia

Booked this unit on Febuary 26, 2014 for my family's long time planned vacation. Paid on the same day that it was booked and agreed with the owner's rules and regulations. Here comes May 6, 2014 a month before our planned travel and the owner cancelled the booking because she said it was OVERLOOKED for double booking. It took her 3 MONTHS to realize that mistake and left me with no unit for my family. No recommendations or what so ever. She just said "unfortunately". I wonder if anyone knows how renting of units in the Philippines supposed to be. Is it really this unprofessional and unreliable?

My experience so far has been good and the one you had experience is obviously a lousy one.

May I know have you found a alternate unit? There are many units available for short term rental in Manila so you do not need to worry.

What's the problem? You have a month to find something suitable.

Leftovers, I don't see kids mentioned anywhere. It's the first post from Sheene20 and it's a rant.

@Sheena20...So sorry to hear about what happened. I'm just wondering how you ended up booking the apartment? I mean, did you book it through a site or was referred to the owner? I would suggest booking through some some rental sites i.e. airbnb, ibilik, alcoves or roomarama as mentioned above. These rental sites usually provide reviews of user feedback so you can check on the owner's reputation.
