It's a very nice apartment, spacious and light, but not as slick a finish as the photos, as the level of workmanship is poor in some areas.

Glad that you enjoyed your trip and we're sorry that some of the appliances were not properly working.
During your stay we unfortunately had two DVD's break down which we replaced with an iMac. Frustratingly, this would still not play your DVD's from France so I provided some DVD's that were the right region. We have now installed a flat screen TV with home entertainment system- DVD/CD player and USB port to plug in your own device. Please note the hardware is there but its really worth bringing your own ipad/mp3/laptop to input your own content.
Also the dishwasher had to be repaired and there is no washing machine (which is indicated in the listing). We got the maid to do your laundry for a month for free, so I hope that resolved the issue. We may well change the dishwasher for a washing machine this summer as this seems to be more of a priority for most guests.
I was surprised that you were not happy with the standard of cleanliness and only mentioned this 2 weeks in. I checked the apartment thoroughly before you came especially bathrooms and kitchens. We got the cleaner to do a really thorough clean when you mentioned this. I think it was fair to say the windows had some rain marks on, but the apartment generally is always clean before and during a guests stay.
We always take on board any comments, and we appreciate the fact that you felt able to rate us 4 out of 5 stars.
