Dear Mr Kirchbaumer, due to unexpected - unfortunate personal events, i was not able to submit my review about hosting you and your family. It would have been a positive review, because you seemed like kind, polite and decent people as far as you let me know in person and as far as the condition of the house is concerned. Odd is the fact that there was never the slightest hint from you, of what i consider to be a bad review,in fact, the only bad review i have ever received. You seemed very contented and satisfied with all i provided and agreed app on: your early check in request, to have all beds (2 double & 1 single) in the house set, for the three of you (even though this is considered as two extra guest & charged additionally),toys for your son ,highchair for your son, wine for the evening, the immediate repair of the kitchen faucet that was leaking, extra blanket ones requested!! So now it is truly disappointing to receive a mostly negative review, almost nothing positive is mentioned, even though your texts were very kind and enthusiastic and i copy paste your texts:
we were falling in love with your beautiful house!:) We are thinking about spending one week in Afytos at the end of september. We are now not sure about the exact date...Our son is three years old. Would it be possible to get a high chair?"
Thanks for your kind response!
Probably we will stay in Greece from 25th of September - 2nd october.
Because it's the low season at this time - i wanna ask you, would it be possible to get a little Discount?"
thank you for the confirmation!
We are looking forward to visit your fantastic villa! :)"
Sorry for our late response!
We are already in Greece and will arrive by car. Please send the instruction to (EMAIL HIDDEN) Would it be possible to do the check in in the afternoon? Around 4pm?
Our little boy normally spends the first hours of the night in his bed and comes later to our bedroom. Is it ok, if you prepare both rooms?"
To address the issues you mentioned Mr Kirchbaumer:
During your finalized seven day stay from the 1st - 8th of October there one day with unforeseen extremely bad and very stormy - windy weather conditions . The six remaining days, the weather was good & sunny, good enough to spend all day at the beach, as you mentioned to me. So it is highly unlikely & very exaggerated to say that you were cold time and time again! Further more if you had bothered to contact me during your stay, i would have gladly informed you about the heating in the house and how to turn it on! Also flees winter blankets were provided at check in (as always in October) and an extra blanket was provided ones you requested it!! As for the pool,there is no mention in my listing that the pool is heated, so i do not understand why i am held accountable for a cold pool beginning October.
Last but not least, never did i promise to provide bicycles (they are also not mentioned in my listing), i said that i would try to find bicycles and i couldn't find any available, in October (low - end of season). Not to mention that your wife was totally and clearly against the idea.How is this a down point? Even when i offered to suggest restaurants and places to go to in Afytos and close by and you practically shut me down, as if i had something to gain.
It is sad, but think the main issue for your lashing out, is the fact that i declined your request for an additional discount in your inquiry, even though i explained that the price is already much lower in October. Insatiable, poor in communication and tidy are the words i would use to describe you now to every host, after these events.
I truly hope that your spiteful review does not effect future guests.
I wish you all the best!
