Thank you very much for your review.
Unfortunately, we have to disagree with almost the aspects detailed.
First, we were not advertising that the apartment is suitable for wheelchair.
Sadly, you had an accident after you booked your holidays and when you asked us if the apartment would be suitable for wheelchair we only told you that we had previous guests using wheelchair and their feedback was very good (as you can confirm through the review below dated from Nov 8th 2017 – “What a sea view”).
Regarding the hot water issue, we never had problems or guests’ complaints and you only told us that you are having problems after you decided to leave.
When we went to the apartment after your stay we could not find any problem.
Concerning the apartment features, we will not develop it too much hence it is your personal opinion being shared.
All the apartment photos were available online and the general opinion from our guests is very positive as you can confirm from the average classification of our reviews (4 in 5 stars).
Nevertheless, it is hard to please everyone and “the exception makes the rule”.
As you know, we rate your booking considering that you were only 2 guests despite the apartment capacity for 6 guests with access to all the bedrooms which you have used although you were only 2 at the beginning. Plus, we have also accepted not to charge any plus fee when you received your family at the apartment for a couple of days.
We were always available each time you sent us email and we went to the apartment twice to help you. The last time was to give you the postal box key and for our huge surprised a couple of days after you told us that you are about to leave the apartment.
As we also told you, the building is antique and the lift sometimes has problems but we asked for technical assistance immediately after your contact informing us about it.
Regarding the overall review that you made of the apartment, we think that the it has everything that is need in holidays and the sea speaks for it selves but as you said you have no lucky with the weather and everything gets more "sad" when it is raining.
We are very sorry that your holidays were not worked as you imagine but from our side we did our best efforts to give you a good experience.
Thanks and best wishes,
Andreia & Adriana
