“very very dissaponted”

it's the worst experience I ever had with a rental property. As per owner's description you think the property its very well locate it. The reality is that there is no beach 10 minutes walk distance, we never see karaoke bar two minute walk neither the Crane Residential Resort giving you options of European ,Italian ,Japanese or Bajan foods. There is no local vendors or Shops in walking distant. In fact there is nothing except for houses and goats in walking distance. Yes I said Goats, there is a house beside full of goats that are going out early in the morning making a lot of noise. When we arrive we were received by the owner's mom. She was very surprised when we asked for the near beach. she said we will have to take the bus. We looked around and immediately we realized this was not the place it was described. We couldn't stay there, we decided we will find another place in the next morning. we explained the situation to the owner's mom she said will contact Ricardo (the owner) he will call us back. Later that night I decided to call ricardo as I was still waiting for his call. I called several times and sent emails. he never answered (owner not responding to guess not a good sign). I call the mom again she said that she spoke to ricardo and he said he will call me back. she said that she will meet as at noon the next day to pick up the keys. I finally spoke with Ricardo before noon. he said he will give me only half of my money back because he had to pay for cleaning the place. I booked for a week on a Friday to be there on a Monday. I don't think it will cost that much to clean and I didn't occupied his calendar for too long. I pretty sure if we didn't rent it the place will be empty anyways. plus his description about the area was not a cure. however I was on vacations I didn't want to argue so I agreed to accept only half of I paid for the week. Ricardo told me that TripAdvisor hasn't paid him yet so he will wire me the money when I get back to Canada the following week. I got back home I didn't hear back from Ricardo so I tried to contact him by phone and by email several times. I didn't have any answer so I contacted TripAdvisor. they told me the only thing they can do is to send him a message. after that Ricardo emailed me back in a very impolite way. He wrote things like he never said that the beach was on his backyard and that he is not going to give me any money back. I cannot believe how dishonest is this owner. he gave me his word that I will have half of my money back. Nobody can not trust in a person like that. This kind of owner SHOULD NOT be in a website like TripAdvisor.

To whom it may concern.
It is obvious this guest did not understand what I rote on my description and location.I did not advertise beach front property or five star location. This guest ignored the cancellation policy he did not cancel with in twenty four hours, it was up too me to give him a re fund he didn't deserve a refund because of his disrespectful and dishonest behavior. This guest told my host, who happen to be my mother that she is too old to be a host. He started the booking process rong he book for two instead of three, on arrival he was ask to pay for his 14 year old daughter he got very up set. My pass guest on Flipkey and Airbnb had no problems with my location, property or me. They is no sheep next door to my property but in the neighborhood yes.some people welcome animals. I forgive him for his attempt to discredit my property and me and hope he learn something good from a bad situation and I thank him for his business.

Very clean and spacious second floor apartment with beautiful tile in bathroom and kitchen. Sit and watch the sunrise and enjoy the constant breeze on the deck overlooking the Ocean. There is one air conditioner in the front bedroom but was not needed because of the constant breeze that flows through the house. The use of a car is helpful if only to get supplies although there was a welcome kit provided (kitchen and bathroom needs) which came in handy. WiFi and cable was available to keep in touch but most of my time was spent out on the deck with a book and unbelievable view. The best part of this rental was meeting the owner's Mother, Ms. Gloria who was there to greet me and say good bye when I left. She called several times to check on me while I was there and could not do enough....what a lovely lady!!

“Authentic Barbados away from the tourist trap”

We have just arrived home after a relaxing holiday at Ocean View,the owner went out of his way to make our visit enjoyable and quickly sorted out any little problems that arose. His mum lives on the Island and made sure we were comfortable both on arrival and during our stay. Hello Gloria,The villa is on the less populated eastern side of the island in a quiet local area, the sea view is lovely and the patio benefits from the wind which in the afternoon heat is most welcome. As the villa is away from most tourist areas and a little isolated, a vehicle is a must to get the most out of the Island, no where is more than an hour away even when you get lost now and again. If you want parties, loud nightlife and karaoke then go some where else, if you want peace and the chance to enjoy traditional Bajan life, then this is the place for you. Don't expect the luxury and surroundings of a 5*hotel, just a basic,clean, comfortable apartment which is a great base when exploring the Island, if we return to Barbados we will be more than happy to return to Ocean View, the neighbours are friendly, the area safe the owner helpful and the weather great, what more could you want.
