Unfortunately this review is one of disappointment. I booked this property because of the outdoor spa and paid approx $400 more for it. It didn't work the entire stay and I had to contact the repairman myself even tho I was there for a family wedding! The host paid $110 refund w…
I understand the disappointment, but the spa has been working for years. Your comment that you had to contact the repair man yourself is untrue, and misleading. I communicated the spa repair man had attended the morning ofnyour arrival, and I organized him to return during your stay. I gave you his details as a courtesy so he would not interrupt your stay - it gave you power to vary his arrival if you wanted, not make a false review that you had to contact him yourself. It was also to help give you understanding that we had done all we could to repair the spa which broke Just prior to your arrival. I didn’t need to give a refund but wanted to show good faith. The suggestion of the spa being worth $400 of your stay seems unlikely, and you certainly didn’t ask for any refund at the time - it was purely goodwill on my part. Regarding the pump being rusted - it’s not a user serviceable part and surely this constitutes a valid reason for repair. I had told the repairer to replace anything needed, not repair as I wanted confidence. I assume you learned this from him. So I am very sorry that you didn’t have the spa working, but would ask you to consider what would you do in my position? We got a repair guy out in less than 24hrs from discovery of the issue, and he came twice, and he was asked to repair it ASAP, and properly. It would be good to have complete control over everything in life, but sadly that’s not reality. I’m sure the spa overshadowed your stay, but a more balanced review might have commented on more than this one issue, which was outside my reasonable control. I am happy to offer you another stay at half price, once the spa is repaired (two weeks or so he said). Just let me know if you have reason and interest in future. Noting there are not many home with spas in the area on Airbnb. Again I am so sorry this impacted your stay, and trust you still did enjoy the other aspects that were as advertised. In response I’ve also updated the listing to note that the spa, like everything, can break down and need a repair, but this is rare. It should not need to be said, but it’s now clearer for others. I presume also the spa repair guy told you he had come less than six weeks prior to service the spa, and he didn’t report any issue with the pump then. It does get a lot of use as you can of course see from reviews.
Works in education scheduling, but also a strong advocate for the sharing economy. As seen on TV ha ha - See Chrislivesfree. Drives a Tesla ... well, actually it self-drives me most of the time! I've also got solar panels and a Tesla Powerwall home battery. Ask me about techno…
