Large apartment yith 4 bathrooms and one balcony
Check-in is anytime after 12PM (noon)
Check out by 10AM
The size of the apartment was enough for 10 people, it was okay. Kitchen utensils are very deficient, they are unsuitable for cooking, especially for 10 people. There is no air conditioning, but we knew this before I asked Sandro and he said no need for it because there is no warm in the apartment (i note in their home there was air conditioning). Of course, it was very warm so we slept with open window. But unfortunately the next day we had to face the fact that there are so many mosquitoes and our children have been terribly bite on the first night. The next day, we got an electric mosquito alarm, but unfortunately the itching stings were affected all week, the children were scrape until blooding. I think a really good host is paying attention to such "little things" and trying to find a solution to eliminate the problem, for sure they knew about the mosquitoes as they live there. We did not meet Sandro in person, only with ( I think) his wife's parents. When we arrived they kindly showed us the apartment, but after (2days) telling them that there were not enough warm water for 10 people, the host lady upset explained in Croatian, obviously blaming us. Of course, after this event they did not smile when we met, we felt they were reluctant to see us. They never asked us how we feel at their place or it's everything ok, zero kommunication. In the second half of the week we had to struggle with the bees in the apartment, which probably had their nest in the kitchen somewhere. It is also a strange fact that if somebody receive guests into his home, he is trying to assure a good rest for them, but here each night we have to listen to the host's jollification every evening even after 11 Pm when we tryed to rest, in fact the window could'n be closed because we would have drowned in the absence of climate. They were very noisy, they have absolutely no regard for the guests who want to relax. Wi-Fi is very weak. Despite all this, we tried to feel good, the beach is sandy and close, we tried to spend a little time as possible in the apartment. We did not spend the last night there, we decide to go home, rather than sleep one more night in the warm apartment. These were our experiences, I would not want to influence anyone, but we certainly would not choose this place again.
Response from Sandro:
Dear Anna, Thanks for your feedback. I must say, we are doing this for more than 30 years and I must say we never had this kind of feedback. So, let's get started the: 1. Kitchen - there is only 1 kitchen which is enough, there are enough plates and dishes for normal using. 2. Air condition: as you say, you knew there is no AC and yes I said for me it is ok to sleep, so I dont see the point raising this as it was your choice to come. 3. Mosquitos- yes of course, it is summer there is water and trees around of course there are bugs, I dont see how is that our fault. You say host should pay attention on such details, I mean do you want me to kill all the mosquito or ?? 3. Warm water: it is eletric tank of 200 L. So, if you manege to spend all that you just push the buttno to start heating again 4. Communication: as you know, you were not the only guest there and all of them saw you coming by pointing your had in the ground and passing by. Obviously you did not want to communicate 5. Noise: as you may noticed, other guests as well as me had small kids and nobody was making noise at 11pm 6. Wifi is there as you said, week sometimes as it is an Island, not Paris.. 7. And finally, last point the biggest lie that you tried to be as less as possible in the apartment due to conditions!?!? You didnt get out at all, maybe 30 minutes per day. I dont mind that but I do not what issues you have. Also, you left DIRTY apartment, we found dirty dishes, dirty underwear on the floor, garbage on the floor.. As I said, we are doing this for more then 30 years, and if our place would be as you described, we wouldnt last 5 years..
