Booked apartment for 7wks( 19th Dec 15 to 6thFeb16). The apartment is advertised as a two bed two bathroom accommodation. What it fails to point out is that only one of the bath rooms has hot water. That is there is only one shower with hot water (There is no hot water out of any, tap kitchen or bath room).
This becomes more of a problem as the shower with the hot water can only be got to by entering the main bedroom.
This whole shower thing became a big problem for us as the hot shower had a faulty ( on/off ) valve. You had to have several attempts to get the shower to stay on.
Several phone calls to the owner over the first week failed to get the valve fixed it was not resolved till the second week of our stay.
The other main problem with the apartment was the blinds (Vertical Blinds) in the main bed room and the lounge. They were broken and could not be drawn with out much flapping around. This became really frustrating. Finally sorted( In lounge only) , in the last week of our stay.
In all, I must say my contacts with the owner, (over the phone ,he lives in Mumbai), he was polite and upset to hear about the problems we where having and tried his hardest to resolve them as quickly as he could. The trouble was that he had to rely on his cleaner of the apartment to organise all the repairs. This was not good and even more frustrating.
All this is a shame as the apartment it's self is nice and has lots of room. The beds are large and it was mainly clean when we got there ( No where is as clean as you like when you get there).
The other thing that was not made clear in the adverts, is that the apartment is on the ground floor, the balcony wall can easily be scaled.
If the owner could make sure that all these silly little points are prevented from happening. If he made sure he had a trusted handy man to do his repairs, I would well recommend this apartment to any one.
