Not worth the money. The pictures are beautiful but it’s more a case of a talented photographer and editing than a beautiful place. The place is right next to a slum and it’s rustic feel has been taken too far....drawers and shelves are falling apart and towels are so old that t…

To those reading this review: Check this review against the 100+ reviews and see if it holds true. This ‘guest’ was a total con job - Chloe (Enayat’s girlfriend) sent me a request to book, trying to bargain for a better price. When I did not accept her request, unknowing to me she sent a request from her boyfriend Enayat’s account, which I accepted. And then after checking in, she started making false complaints (like she states in this review) from her boyfriend’s account in order to get something from me. Once I figured out what was happening, I asked them to leave and gave them a full refund. Which has resulted in this negative review. Falling apart and everything else she says - total and utter nonsense! Are you kidding me? I don’t have any tolerance for con jobs. Sorry! Please know that my place is only for honest, respectful and hassle free guests who value other people’s homes (its part of my rules). Please don’t bother to send me request to book if you’re not - it’s not worth my time. And I will not hesitate to ask you to leave if you try to run a number on me, regardless of reviews like this one!
Beware Bengaluru traffic - we found it hard to get where we needed from this location. Also, apartment is atop a commercial space, so there appeared to be no other residents (just guards) in the building.

Sarah booked my place for a stay, but decided to not continue her stay, with the reason that she felt unsafe. While I respect her feelings, in my opinion, they were not grounded in the reality of the situation. My place is extremely safe, with more than 75 guests having enjoyed a wonderful stay! While leaving, she also stated that she wanted to be in an area where there were many coffee shops so she could work. However, she did not check if this was the situation before/while booking. While there are a couple of coffee shops in the area (which I told her about), it didn’t meet her expectations. I could have clarified what the ground reality was had I known what her expectations were before she booked/checked in. And my listing does not state that there are many coffee shops on the area, so this was a false assumption that she made on her own accord. She decided to check out ahead of completion of stay and wanted a refund. However, I have a strict cancellation/ refund policy which Airbnb and me will consider to waive for valid reasons only, which wasn’t the case here. Unfortunately for her, we did not issue her a refund. I expect her to be negative in her review as a result, and would be surprised if that weren’t the case. As am Airbnb super host (with a lot of experience hosting guests), I prefer to interact with guests who understand how Airbnb works and are clear in their communications/expectations, so situations like this can be avoided. And I prefer to host guests who stay for the duration of their booking - it puts me in an awkward position too to charge someone who didn’t stay the whole time. Hopefully, this is a learning experience!
